Kent Moors teases his “‘Infinite Energy’ Nano-Grid” Stock for 38,901% Gains

What microcap stock is being hinted at by Micro Energy Trader?

This teaser solution was originally posted on October 5, 2016 — the ad has been circulating very heavily again and driving a lot of questions our way, so I took another look today.

This ad from Dr. Moors is now going out with a May, 2017 date under Moors’ signature, but the changes from the October 2016 ad seem very slight. We have kept the original comments appended to this article.

The stock rose substantially from the Fall into the $5 per share peak in late January, probably in large part because of the attention from Kent Moors and, to a lesser degree, from the Game-Changing Stocks pitch from StreetAuthority that also hints at this stock as one of their ideas… that’s a lot of attention for a microcap company to absorb, and it almost doesn’t matter what the fundamentals of the company are like if a few thousand new investors are getting excited about it because of a newsletter ad campaign.

Arotech is still the stock being teased, and the fundamentals don’t appear to have changed markedly to me… the shares have come back down to roughly the same price they were at before the first version of Kent Moors’ ad caught our attention seven months ago. They did beat expectations late last year as their turnaround looked to be gaining a little steam, but then the full year numbers for 2016 and the first quarter this year were disappointing (latest earnings were released about two weeks ago), so it’s hard to foresee any real trend developing in their financials.

Much of what follows is unchanged from 10/5/16, as the ad itself is largely unchanged, but I’ve gone through and updated as necessary:

Dr. Kent Moors never goes small or understated with his investment promises… this is the intro to his latest teaser pitch for Micro Energy Trader ($3,500/year):

“I have, in my possession, a document containing shocking details about what may be the most important energy innovation of the past 100 years.

“This disruptive invention, partially funded by the military, is in the final stages of development by a small U.S. defense contractor.

“As soon as it’s released it will almost instantly disrupt nearly every aspect of a $6 trillion global energy market.”

Don’t get out your checkbook yet, though, we’re going to sniff around, use the awe-inspiring power of the Mighty, Mighty Thinkolator to figure out what company he’s talking about, and give you a chance to think for yourself a bit (and, I hope, share your thoughts with us).

After that, if you’ve got an extra $3,500 laying around and want to subscribe to his letter… be my guest — but I think you’ll have a better chance of thinking through the stock dispassionately if you don’t pay up front for the privilege (teaser stock ads like this fuel two big biases for many investors: if you pay for information, you’re more likely to believe it and act on it; and we are all more inclined to overweight the first piece of analysis we read about any investment, so I think it’s better if that first bit of info comes at no or little cost and with at least a little cynicism to balance the “buy” sentiment of these overhyped newsletter ads).

So let’s dig into it, shall we? Moors indicates that it’s a tiny defense contractor that has the potential to grow to rival giants like Boeing…

“Now look at a microcap company like the $75 million defense contractor I’m about to introduce you to.

“If, as I expect based on their incredible new development, their value jumps 38,901%…

“They’ll still only be a third of the size of Boeing today.

“And I’m confident they’ll grow to at least that size.

“Because when you find the right defense contractor at the right time, the profit potential is truly historic.

“The federal government has already vetted the company, paid for their research, tested their technology’s effectiveness…

“And they’re awarding them more contracts than ever.”

OK, having the Feds as a customer is good — particularly if the number of contracts is rising. The government, particularly the defense department, is not terribly cost-conscious… all else being equal, your profit margins are probably safer if you’re trying to sell jet fighters to the government than if you’re selling sensor chips to Apple.

Moors says that the government is looking for energy solutions for the military, and he says the promising development that cuts down on the huge demand for diesel fuel (for generators) is what he’s calling the “nano grid” — apparently, fuel is a big logistics challenge for the military as well as a real risk factor:

“One out of every 24 times a fuel convoy is deployed to refuel a station, someone in that convoy will die.

“While new technology is helping, the casualty rate isn’t coming down fast enough.

“And that loss of life is unacceptable.

“And Congress knows it.

“They’ve granted the military $7 billion to find a new way to get the power our military needs to the places we need it.

“They’re investing in renewable energy, biofuel, and more efficient generators.

“As Col. Peter Newell says, the purpose isn’t to save energy, it’s to save lives.”

Apparently this “Nano-grid” is an improvement on “Micro-grid” technology… more from Moors:

“… one of the most promising developments is something you may have heard of called the Micro-Grid.

“It’s a simple solution.

“The Micro-Grid collects energy from different sources. It can harness solar, wind, as well as traditional sources like diesel generators.

“It feeds all this energy into a central hub, then distributes it to the rest of the base as needed.

“This gives a forward operating base two main advantages:

“First, by using alternatives to supplement the generators, a base can reduce the amount of fuel they burn every day, which cuts down on the need for transports.

“Second, it eliminates one of the biggest threats in any conflict: the single point of failure.”

But since “Micro-grid” wasn’t enough, apparently the military threw money at improving that concept… more from the ad:

“To truly ensure our troops have all the power they need without risking the casualties that come along with fuel transports, they need these grids to be much cheaper and much faster to install.

“So for the past decade, the Army has been investing in dozens of companies – both large and small – to develop a solution.

“One of those companies was the small defense contractor I’ve been talking about today.

“In 2007, the Army granted them an R&D contract for $1,594,283.

“They awarded them another R&D contract in 2008, this time for $1,689,061.

“Now, after almost a decade in development, they’re in the final stages of testing…

“The ‘Infinite Energy’ Nano-Grid.”

So what the heck is a “Nano-Grid?” From what I can tell from the ad, it’s just a combination of a small solar power array (that’s the “infinite energy” part), a high-density battery storage system, and a power controller that regulates the use of the electricity.

Which is probably functionally quite similar to a home with solar panels, an inverter and power management system, and a backup battery (though, obviously, a portable system for the military would be as small and ruggedized as possible).

More on the product:

“Unlike Micro-Grids, the Nano-Grid doesn’t take a team of engineers 90 days to assemble. Anyone can have it up and running in less than 20 minutes.

“And instead of the 10 years it takes for a Micro-Grid to reach break-even, the Nano-Grid pays for itself in just months.”

What other hints point us to a specific stock?

Over the past 12 months, They’ve been granted 93 Federal Contracts with the Army, Navy, Air Force, State Department, and more.

Last year, The government paid this Microcap Defense Contractor $49.68 million.

“And this year they have $63 million more in orders they’re working to fulfill.

“That’s over $112,680,000 of federal contracts in just two years’ time…

“Which is why, based the military applications of the Nano-Grid alone, my projections have this company’s stock surging 1,026%.”

(Those sections that are struck through are what was removed between October and May — just to keep it close to accurate, I guess)

I’ll confess that I jumped down to see the Thinkolator results so I could think rationally about this part of the tease, but I can tell you that this “secret” company (don’t worry, that secret is almost out of the bag! You can do it! Just a few more paragraphs!) has been around for many years, and over the past decade it has mostly traded at a price/sales ratio ranging from about .2 to .8 — they have bumped up over a price/sales ratio of 1 a couple times, first in 2014 and then just a few months ago, and each time the market cap has come down quite sharply. Today, with the stock getting a bit of a bump from Moors already, the P/S ratio is about .85.

That means they might need real revenue to grow 1,000% for the stock to surge 1,000%. That doesn’t happen very often, or very quickly.

What other clues do we get about this company, so we can wrap this up in a neat little bow for you?

“This defense contractor’s CEO has publically stated, “The growth strategy is to continue in the military, but look for activities in the municipal.”

And starting January 5 of this year The Department of Energy implemented Standard 90-1. That requires all new federal buildings lower their energy consumption from the grid by 30%.

“That’s an enormous drop for a single year.

“But it’s not out of reach, because this defense contractor has now released a commercial version of their Nano-Grid technology.

“It uses the same three components as the military version, but designed specifically to power residential and commercial buildings…

“… over the past year, this company has secured contracts with the U.S. Immigration Office, NASA, the Federal Acquisition Service, the Parks Service, Veterans Affairs, the TSA, and more.

“These contracts alone tell me this stock is about to take off…

“And by all appearances, even high-level government insiders agree.

Earlier this year, A Director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s ‘Energy Policy and Systems Analysis,’ acquired a stake in the company worth more than $680,000.

“Why would a public official want so much equity in a small defense contractor?”

OK, so now we’re getting clear enough — the Thinkolator has plenty of data, what’s our answer?

This is (still) Arotech (ARTX), which was also teased by StreetAuthority’s Game-Changing Stocks way back in February of 2016.

Arotech is a tiny little defense contractor. The market cap is about $82 million today, roughly the same as it was back in October, and they have two divisions: Power Systems; and Simulation and Training.

Their power business is by far the smaller and the less profitable of the two (43% of sales, and gross margins of 18% — about half the gross margins that the Training division earns on its 57% of the sales pie), and it includes a variety of programs… one of which is, indeed, that “Nano-grid” product that Arotech calls the Ground Renewable Expeditionary Energy Network System (GREENS), which they describe in their product brochure (you can see it here, from two years ago):

“GREENS saves fuel, money, and reduces the frequency of resupply missions. GREENS is the first viable solution to replace traditional fuel-fired generators. GREENS was developed as a USMC Program of Record, but has applicability to both civilian and military customers. The system collects solar energy and converts it into useable power. Excess solar energy is stored in the array of high energy density battery systems (HEDBS) for use when solar energy is insufficient. The system is light-weight and man portable. The GREENS HEDBS is safe, and has been approved as UN/DOT Class 9 tested for commercial shipment.”

“GREENS HEDBS” just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? I can see why the ad copywriter for Kent Moors decided to call them “Nano-Grids.” In a fairly similar vein, there’s also their MEHPS, the Mobile Electric Hybrid Power Sources for the Marine Corps.

I don’t know what the real commitments are to the GREENS HEDBS program or MEHPS in their Power Systems division, or what the eventual potential might be, but they are not massive just now — MEHPS is very small at $2.6 million, GREENS HEDBS apparently is under a $40.8 million IDIQ contract (indefinite deliver, indefinite quantity), but I don’t know how much of that has been used so far (in the latest conference call they said there confident they would get the full value of that contract, but didn’t say anything about timeframe).

There’s also a push in the ad about insider buying by “in the know” government insiders…

“So far this year, a Naval Advisor to two U.S. presidents…

“A former Chairman of a White House Task Force on Defense….

“And a current Deputy Director in the U.S. Department of Energy…

“That’s just three people…

“Have scooped up over $4.7 million worth of this company’s stock.”

It’s really just that “former Chairman of a White House Task Force” who “scooped up over $4.7 million” worth — that’s the current Chairman of Arotech, Jon Kutler, who was elected to that role after his private equity firm, Quarterdeck, bought up about 1.5 million shares earlier this year. That task force was at some undisclosed point in the past, it was the White House Small Business Task Force on Defense Conversion, and I don’t know what they did (usually “defense conversion” means converting defense capacity to civilian use, whether that’s turning a tank factory into an auto factory or whatever, or converting defense technologies to civilian use).

The other two “insiders” are small — the “Naval Advisor” is Rear Admiral James J. Quinn, USN (Ret.), he owns about 6,000 shares (roughly $20,000 worth) and was put on the board earlier this year to replace outgoing CEO Robert Ehrlich, whose contract has now been bought out. There’s no indication that he bought the shares, perhaps he owned them prior to his appointment or was granted them as director compensation (the latter is more likely, I’d wager, but the SEC filings as reported by Yahoo are unclear and I didn’t dig further).

And the “current Deputy Director” is Carol Battershell, Deputy Director for Energy Systems in the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis (EPSA) at the Department of Energy. She holds about 25,000 shares and, again, there’s no indication she bought any of them — she was put on the board this year as well, as part of the shakeup in the board and management following a proxy battle.

So yes, technically those three people together own or control more than $5 million worth of shares now, and they all acquired those shares in 2016 — though the only one of that bunch who’s really been buying shares this year is Kutler, who acquired the vast majority of his holdings early in 2016 in the $2 neighborhood and has made a few smaller buys more recently (there have been a couple buys by directors as well, back in November, and another wave of annual issuance of shares to directors as part of their compensation).

And, in case you haven’t already surmised this, every defense contractor of any size has people who are retired from or connected to government service in management and on the board of directors. So don’t get too excited about those connections, though Moors does say that he thinks a “recent insider buy” is a sign of a breakout to come (that would presumably be Kutler’s recent purchases, he bought about 50,000 additional shares over the past few months at about $2.70/share). Maybe the shakeup and reorganization of the company will bear some fruit, maybe not — but having connections and new board members certainly doesn’t guarantee anything.

What else does Moors say to get us excited?

“… there’s another little known initiative that the Department of Energy is pushing hard this year.

“It’s called the Zero Energy Ready Home Program.

“It’s a set of standards that would move 60% of new construction to a hybrid, off-the-grid power system.

“Exactly the kind of accomplishment that only technology like the Nano-Grid can accomplish.

“And the market for this application is immense.

“In the U.S., construction is one of our biggest industries.

“We spend $48.8 billion each year just installing electric systems alone in new buildings.

“If this Nano-Grid simply replaces the electrical systems in the 60% of new construction that will have to meet this standard…

“That will drive their revenues to more than $37.9 billion a year by 2020.

“That’s 38,901% revenue growth in just over three years.

“And that’s an extremely conservative number.”


Going from nothing to replacing the electrical systems in over half of all new construction in three years is “extremely conservative?”

I’m always curious to see what stocks are being touted, and I keep an open mind when I look at the actual company’s materials… but for God’s sake, don’t take these kinds of statements seriously. It’s far too easy to “model” massive growth for a company based on it taking some theoretical percentage of the revenues of a massive industry.

Is the assumption that we’re going to have a huge new push in backup power, batteries and electrical controls for new buildings, but that somehow the current dominant companies in the electrical equipment or solar/battery space (Eaton, Schneider, Emerson, Johnson Controls, etc. etc. etc.) will just back away and give it to some new little company, and somehow that little company will have the manufacturing prowess and capacity to handle some massive 1,000%+ growth in demand?

That’s just dumb.

It doesn’t mean this “secret” little company Arotech is necessarily a bad investment… but I’ll go out on a limb and say that it’s not going to have anything close to 38,901% revenue growth in three years.

When it comes to Arotech’s actual financials, they have shown decent but unspectacular growth at times… but the last two years have been weak. Revenue declined a little in 2015 and fell again in 2016. They do talk a lot in their calls about being ready for more meaningful orders in 2017 and 2018, particularly in Power Supply, and they do announce relatively small contracts that have indefinite timing with some regularity — but currently the backlog (orders they’re pretty sure they’ll fulfill) is about $52 million, which isn’t particularly huge (and is smaller than it was a year ago). The company’s last investor presentation, from the Spring of 2016, anticipated that the growth would resume — they were forecasting 2016 estimated revenues of $112 million, and the year instead came in at $93 million. This year, they’re guiding for revenue of $93-103 million.

The balance sheet is in fine shape, they have a little room on their credit lines and $9 million in cash to offset their $16 million or so in debt, so they could buy some other small companies to “leverage their public company infrastructure” if they so wished (Arotech was formed by mushing several small contractors together). Organic growth seems unlikely to be rapid or inexpensive, so, again, I would cool your jets on any expectations of growth rates in the thousand percent plus neighborhood over the next decade, but that doesn’t mean the company can’t grow or that they’re in any kind of serious trouble at the moment. There is growth potential if their turnaround makes them more efficient or they identify some new revenue growth sources (there are hundreds of small defense suppliers, many of them private, so perhaps there are some acquire-able gems out there, I have no idea), but I have no idea what kind of revenue (or margin) growth potential they believe that these purported 2017 or 2018 larger-scale orders might bring, or what level of certainty we should have that any such orders will come.

I went back to see what I wrote about this stock when Andy Obermueller was pitching it for his StreetAuthority newsletter well over a year ago, and this is what I said:

“They are profitable but have not been growing recently, and they seem to have a fairly steady backlog and have announced orders several times this year for both their training and simulation business and their power management business. The stock has had a few big swings in the last five years or so, I don’t see any reason why they should suddenly see the kind of revenue growth that gives you 10,000% returns (right now they’re talking about cutting costs and operational efficiencies, which is not what you hear from companies that are expecting sales to skyrocket), but neither is there anything that looks disastrous in their books. They are forecasting adjusted earnings of between 18 and 23 cents per share this year, so that’s not terrible for a $2.80 stock even if they’re not growing fast (and they do think growth is resuming).

“I don’t know if they stand out as being particularly unique in the ‘military battery’ business, there are a lot lot lot of small defense contractors and subcontractors, and Arotech is not the only one focused on power systems… but it is one of the few publicly traded ones.

“Can’t get excited about that one, I’m afraid — it looks pretty reasonable, but will probably also be very dependent on fluctuating project funding so I’d want to really understand their backlog and their future prospects. Maybe when you check it out you’ll see something exciting.”

Unsurprisingly, I still agree with myself on that. And, coincidentally enough, Arotech is still predicting similar “adjusted earnings” for 2017 of 20-24 cents per share (they posted adjusted earnings of one penny in the first quarter, so they’ve got some catchup to do). So I guess it shouldn’t be too surprising that the stock has had trouble getting any real traction, despite a new wave of investor attention from a big publisher.

It may be that distributed energy generation and storage in general is the “most important energy innovation of the past 100 years,” but I don’t see any reason why this little defense contractor should have the inside track on being a big part of that innovation. Technology improves every day for solar, batteries and other storage and energy management technologies, choosing long-term winners is probably a fool’s game at this point even if you’re going with big companies that already have a degree of dominance in the sector and are effectively spending a lot of money on R&D — laying those kinds of expectations at the feet of a $100 million microcap company with a small military power supply business probably won’t do you (or them) a lot of good.

That’s not to say that dreaming about 38,901% gains isn’t fun — it is, just like gambling or buying lottery tickets is fun. But keep in mind that picking one number on the roulette wheel and getting it right has only about a 2.5% probability of success… and that would provide you with “only” a 3,500% return. I’d say your odds of getting that kind of return are better at the roulette table than they are in ARTX over the next five or ten years, but, of course, roulette is an all or nothing bet, so you get nothing if you’re wrong. Arotech could certainly putter along for a long time and might even generate some returns, perhaps even doubling or tripling or better over a few years if they get some big contracts or defense spending increases dramatically… and while the stock could also easily be cut in half by continued weakness or the failure to get new contracts, it probably won’t go to zero anytime soon (unless they’re doing something underhanded or illegal, of course).

And you might disagree, or see huge growth for Arotech where I see a decent company with some prospects for growth but no obvious “explosive” potential and a really high degree of uncertainty — please, feel free to share your thoughts with a comment below… it is, after all, your money.

P.S. In earlier versions of this ad, Moors also mentioned another small “contractor” that he says he has recommended in the past, a firm that makes an innovative “H-arc generator” that will save the Navy money — that teaser pitch is no longer in these new ads. That was a microcap called MagneGas (MNGA), and he used to boast that the stock soared 118% in the first 18 days after he recommended it. That roughly gibes with reality (though the soaring probably had at least as much to do with the fact the he was calling attention to such a tiny stock as it did to the actual attractiveness of the company)… but it’s now down by probably about 60% from where it was when he says he recommended it, and down 90% or so from the late 2015 peak. If you’d like a trip down memory lane, or a reason to remind yourself to take Moors’ promises of massive gains from microcaps with a grain of salt, we covered that one here last December when we saw the ads that boasted “there’s never been a moneymaking situation quite like this in the entire history of energy.”

is it possible Areotech will go the “seeking alfa ” route ?


I have subscribed to a service that provides access to Dr.Moors spiels in the past….hold on to your wallet- stock he has touted have cost me a bit- definitely a net LOSS – he should go into politics where he’d fit right in.


I have subscribed to Dr. Moors investment letters too, but have requested my money back within the money back return date. I agree he is a pompous windbag and you are always being offered other investment letters . Very limited info given so your are expected to follow his suggested buys with almost no company info and more on the industry and the forecasted growth.


I listen to the latest version of his tease this evening, he’s offering a $1500 “discount” on his Micro Energy Trader which means you can get in for the low, low price of $3500. And I do mean you, I’m passing.

Thank you, thank you, there you , is any one of you has made a dime on this super ………..? ? It is disgusting ,I would like to hear from some of you who has made 100%,,,200%,,,300% 1000%,,,please ,,,,,


Kent Moors doesn’t know the first thing about due diligence — buyer beware!


He is not promoting DD only promoting his lousy subscription, lol.

Arotech will report earnings May 8th, 2017.. The share price took a one dollar haircut in mid March so has a lot of ground to make up to get back to the prices when it was recommended. Nobody who bought between $4 and $5 is happy – current price $3.22 up from $2.90 just after that March drop. This snip from the March 15th 2017 Conference Call largely explains the 25% drop in share price that followed the earning shortfall: “Adjusted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.01 compared to $0.07 for the corresponding 2015 period.

I am tired of the “LONG REDUNDANT SHPEALS” that take forever to get to the bottom line recommendation. Hype, hype, and hype. If you’ve got something to say, just say it. For some reason I am often “hooked” to listen to these sales pitches and always kick myself after for wasting so much valuable time. Stick with proven people with proven track records.


If you’re really interested, when you start to disconnect, you’re usually offered the option of “Read Transcript.” If you choose that, you can scroll through the entire hour+ in 5-10 minutes and maybe find a little kernel that interests you. If not, you haven’t wasted an hour of your life. Maybe that kernel that you gleaned will be enough to get Travis to solve the puzzle for us all.


The only kernel you will find in any of these email based, internet pitches is at the end of the day you are wasting your money! Even some of the reputable types are getting into the game like Motley Fool, Zack’s, etc.
If they can make so much so much money on the stocks they are touting why do they need to hawk subscriptions incessantly?
SA is as close as you get to real people sharing their “opinions” on equities and then you have to check out the sources to see what their motivation is beyond being publicized.


My gmail box gets crammed stuffed full of this robot sent garbage email.

I’m wondering how long before the post box jams up.

Putting the emails to spam and unsubscribing simply doesn’t work with most of these. I often wonder what they are trying to achieve?

Their behaviour only hardens me toward ALL of them (except Gumshoe – My window that cuts through all this BS, thank you nicely Travis).


You’ve found the solution. Nothing like Travis’ research to cut to the chase and cool the blood.


It’s like chicken hypnotism except he strokes with words until your tightly clenched fist opens and your wallet drops. Thank you very nicely, another chicken plucked. Been there, done that (been plucked).


He just put this out again today with the apparently same snazzy video link.


Thanks for the short version of Moors video.


He is Like Trump a” Nut Job”.

How many wealthy boys are there with an extra $5000 for my recommendations, I would smile all the way to the bank,,,,,I have been the greatest fool I lost my life savings to listen to some genius. Please be careful….


Most institutions I know insist that the company actually demonstrate accelerating business trends before they invest. And they are happy to pay far more for the stock at that time since there is far less risk. Seems like a good policy.

Individuals (myself included sometimes 😉 are suckers for wanting to be “in on the ground floor” and ready “for when this takes off.”

Better to wait and see. Chances abound and they keep coming.

Thanks for the great work detective!

Normally Dubious

I bought a few based on the hype and since then it went from the low fours to the low threes. perhaps all their sales in October were thanks to Moors and not for any real reason.


I was looking for something with a minimum 38,997% upside – this one just won’t cut it.


Moors is the same blowhard who was pitching oil well investments, right at the time the oil market crashed.


Well you know he does(according to him) advise many world countries and companies and has many on his speed dial(lol) maybe that’s​ why the oil industry is where it is.

I have been chasing this “Golden Goose for near a year and found it today. At age 78 I’ve learned about scams the hard way.After spending a couple hours I came across a big report on “the new gasoline” by our ” Better than Trump” seer. Dr.Moor! After getting a $39 basic subscription I asked myself: “Has this old scammer finally gone straight?” When self replied NO. I I started trolling the web. Well,my butt- He is trying to pass Lithium off as gasoline’sreplacement. It is true that someday in the future a highly refined version of lithium might do… Read more »
I would have to agree with the majority of Moors detractors, he stands out as the biggest blowhard on the Internet. If he is an expert at anything it is on how to bamboozle investors with his bombastic pushing of his supposed credentials and hyped up profitability claims. I signed up for his ENERGY ADVANTAGE newsletter because it was cheap but I thought even a few good energy stocks would be worth it. BIG MISTAKE, effectively all I have received is pitches for ever more expensive services, nothing I considered actionable after investigation and request for a refund have so… Read more »

Best money I invested subscribing to Stock Gumshoe! Thank you for the wonderful, enlightening and humorous essays that certainly save me from falling for the big sales pitches (although I am a cynic from way back).


Guest Herb appears to Me to be the NUT JOB.


I followed his advice and fell in love with SUNEQ. The perfect solar stock. Never fall in love with a stock (my mistake) and secondly be careful of an advisor who falls in love with their recommendations. SUNEQ went into bankruptcy. I am not a fan.
I do, however, greatly apprciate the sage thught- out advice of gumshoe.

Greg Garman

With all these teasers that are pitched, and they all flop, isn’t it a good idea to go short, and be the best in that trading sector. LOL.


I have purchased Arotech and MagneGas so have been waiting for this tease again with hopes of breaking even at 4.20. MagneGas is beyond hope. But if all else fails, I have had some good chuckles reading others comments. My dad said what you lack in your head you have to make up with your back……excuse me while I get some liniment.

Doug Miller

Have you heard of another $6 stock he’s pushing
(KTOS) Kratos defense and sec solutions?
And if so what do you think about it?

Joined his Energy Advantage news letter also, only invested in some shares of LIXXF and KTOS. KTOS had already taken off some so got in around $10, staying around the $12 mark right now. Look at their current press releases over the last two months, about $100 million in various new contracts then recently a 3 billion dollar over 5 year DDD (design/develop/demo) with the US Army SMDC. As reference, Globenewswire, sept 5, 2017, Kratos Wins Position on 3 Billion DDD and Integration (DI3) with US Army SMDC… They didn’t turn a net profit last quarter, but KTOS might actually… Read more »

I have madezero gains with Moors recommendations. WhenI see his name or picture , I lose interest.How is it he is even still inbusiness?


I’m out about 3000 following Moors. Not followed anything of his for about three years so I figure I must actually have saved about 3000 by not plowing any more money into his sage recommendations, does that mean I have broken even? No probably not. He is all wind and piss, as we used to say in my youth.


We all need to remember, if the owner of the advisory letter can buy a stock under market and then push the Hell out of it to his subscribers and is able to push the price up, he can make a gain of 20, 30, even 40% on his investment Then he’ll push you to buy his “special inside info” letter for some insane price touting that the last stock he recommended went up 20, 30, or 40% in record time!! He just made a double play!!!


Too true.


Dr Moors, simply put is a self centered, egotistical wind bag. The only pundit I have found to be somewhat honest and reliable is Paul Mamphilly. Waste of my money with the Dr. Lost several thousand. Only two recommendations worked out for me – KTOS and JKS.

Dr. Moors takes a lot of flak for his pompous blather and ridiculous claims, but I wonder how much of what is attributed to him is actually cranked out by the various work-a-day effluviators employed by the publisher. Perhaps he is just a figurehead, collecting royalties for the use of his persona.


Points to you Dave for using the word “effluviators”. Not sure if its even a word but it should be!


Do NOT waste your money on Dr. Moors service unless you want to lose more money on his crappy picks. He has cost me thousands of dollars.

Taking Moors approach — I was personally involved( I swear), from the inception(first year contracts were advertised and bid), in IDIQ construction and maintenance work for the military. —- $100 mil military and $100 mil commercial ( convinced a major oil company to use R. S. Means unit pricing guide) in signed contracts in 2 years. IDIQ contracting was “invented” by the Corps of Engineers ( they say). They issued a pricing book of unit prices, based on R. S. Means pricing guides, which they did not admit. They said they prepared the Corps Prices based upon their long history… Read more »
Like Theodir I watch the long winded videos, but unlike him I did not join Dr. Moors newsletter. Instead I came here and got the info. Since what was said made sense (to me at least) I invested in LIXXF on 5/1/17 and am up 10.38%, ARTX on 5/30/17 and up 11.19% and KTOS on 6/17/17 and am up 10.24% Not huge gains and they may not last. But my “system” is listen to the hype, read to what is said here on SG and then make up my own mind. This site is amazing and the subscription cost is… Read more »

I did subscribe to Moors Energy Advantage about a month before becoming a Gumshoe Irregular; and since have unsubscribed from all rest of Money Map Press letters/teasers……relying on Travis here at Gumshoe. Ditto geonalan, I invested in LIXXF on 5-2-17 and now down a bit -1.3% with todays closing, also a small $1k on each JKS 6-5-17 up 43.8%, and VWDRY 6-12-17 down 5.2%; as you see I like the green energy funds.
Since subscribing to Gumshoe, I have learned a lot! Thanks Travis.

Disregarding ‘teaser’ solicitations … Why I invested a sizable amt in ARTX: Two divisions, both in a sweet spot. (hope mgmt is able) Future military and security needs pointing up. Mobile/renewable power needs increasing. Virtual reality training saves money. Both divisions can move towards/increase commercial business. Good mgmt should find slow/steady growth next 5 yrs. Possible very large/long term contract at any time. Expect another relatively small company buy out by ARTX. Hope it is the perfect fit. If no financial collapse … stock price should do 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x over next 5 yrs. Possible? Yes. Probable?… Read more »
