I am a subscriber to the Income Performance Letter. I am a fan of Stephen Leeb even though he sends out way too many teasers. How these guys can look themselves in the mirror after approving those teasers is beyond me. I have taken various Stephen Leeb letters in past years, and give him pretty high marks. You have to realize, that like many of the others, he sounds like a perma-bull and should take anything that is said in any of these letters as a starting place for your own research. So far, I have done better with Leeb’s… Read more »

I subscribed to Dr. Stephen Leeb’s “Income Performance Report” Newsletter back in March 2009. As part of the subscription offer, I was supposed to get Dr. Leeb’s book, “Game Over: How You Can Prosper in a Shattered Economy,” published by Business Plus, a division of the Hachette Book Group. I have called IPR customer service several times. They claim they sent the book and it was not returned. I never received the book. The customer service supervisor was going to call me, but she never did. I feel like I’ve been had. The book was a big incentive for me… Read more »

An interesting and relatively cheap newsletter with a focus on “income & growth” stocks.

Be aware that a lot of stocks are coming from… The Complete Investor (from Leeb’s team).

Same remarks on their buy/sell instructions: do your own technical and fundamental anlysis before (blindly) following…

I was a subscriber to this newsletter in 2008 and all of his
picks lost lots of money that time, so I canceled it in a
few months. He was wrong about calling a bottom in
financials/housing in 2008.

I have been a off and on subscriber to Leeb’s investing letters for well over 10 years. I have received some good investing ideas and some that were so/so.
Leeb has lost me for good this time. His renewal teaser was renew and receive an uncirculated silver dollar. No big deal either way except no silver dollar. I renewed 11-17 and have called 3 times receiving a fresh promise each time. The principle of the deal has kicked in an I am through. Petty? perhaps but you should keep your promises.

I have subscribed to CompleteInvestor.com. There was a promise of getting the book “Game Over” by Stephen Leeb. I have called 3 times and they have said it has been shipped and they will “check into it”. I am in Canada so I wonder if they don’t want to pay the shipping although nothing was mentioned about not shipping outside of the US. They are always trying to up-sell to more expensive subscriptions. Reading here that others didn’t get the book or the silver coins make me very leary about the organization. I have considered subscribing to the more expensive… Read more »

I also subscribed with the promise of Leeb’s “Game Over” book and never received it. Customer service just said it was sent and to wait longer. After reading above comments about not receiving extra’s, I see this appears to be a common problem with this newsletter service. As far as the quality of the advice in “Income Performance”, it is sound and I’ve made a few good investments. What I like about the letter is that there is always an article for learning on the last page such as articles on the pros and cons of annuities, the pros and… Read more »

I subscribed to Leeb’s Income Performance Letter in June of 2010. In August of 2010 I decided that the information was not to my liking and requested a no questions asked refund according to his “Thin Dime Guarantee. It took more than two months to stop the incessant “come on” e-mails and mail advertisements coming to the house. I have written two letters and numerous e-mails requesting my refund,to no avail. Early on, the customer service rep, Cathe Ritchey acknowledged my request and indicated she would process the request. It is now November 1, 2010 and still no refund. Stay… Read more »

I subscribed to Leeb’s Income performance Letter in June 2010, In August 2010 I decided that it was not the tool I was looking for and requested they cancel my subscription and requested a refund.
Numerous e-mails requesting my refund per their “Thin-dime Guarantee” have fallen on deaf ears. It is now November, 2010 and still no refund. Customer service has acknowledge my request, but no refund to date. Save your money and avoid this marketing ploy to get you money and forget about you.

Well Leeb gets on a theme and pounds it into the ground. If he is right great, wrong watch out, and who has a crystal ball to know which is the case this time. He has so many services he takes about every point of view somewhere. His more conservative letters complete investor and performance letter are the most general offering. Million Dollar portfolio was short for about 9 months of the recovery rally. Had you followed this advice you would have been killed. Real investor had the correct approach small gold, silver and copper miners along with some blue… Read more »

I subscribed to Leeb when they offered a 1 oz complementary 1 oz silver eagle if you subscribe for 2 years. Its been a two years and they still have not sent the eagle. I’ve called 3 times and their customer support tell me its on the way. What a lie!

Other than that problem, leeb is a great contrarian indicator!

I have not received any copies of the LEEB newsletter.
I only received four TOTALLY OUTDATED reports, which I am returning.
Please, cancel my subscription immediately.
You have some nerve !

I subscribed was promised a book. Received one email newsletter, innumerable teaser emails to buy more and never got a book. Guy comes off as a scam and a phony. Buyer beware.

I subscribed for 1 year to the Income Performance letter and was inundated with solicitous e-mails from this “advisor”.
No I didn’t make any real money. Good Luck if you think you can.

I paid $78. for a two year subscriptions that included a book. For six months I kept calling and they told me it was on the way. After six months I started receiving my newsletter and the book. Now, six months later it says Final Issue on my email. Very poor customer service response and keeps poor records. Buyer Beware!

I received a solicitation in the mail for Leeb Income newsletter that claimed their High Yield Income Portfolio has achieved 14.63% a year since 2009. So I went to Leeb Capital Management web site and reviewed Leeb’s Income & Growth Portfolio performance that the company manages for their private clients and this portfolio has only returned 10.8% net expenses over 3 years So if they can’t achieve 14.63% for their private clients then why should I spend $39 for their newsletter. Plus after reading all these negative reviews I would say let the buyer beware.
