I don’t have any specifics about this penny stock newsletter, but Stansberry launched an earlier “stocks under $10” letter by Dan Ferris in 2007, and it quickly became “stocks under $5” — and that was before the market meltdown! Beware of all things Stanberry.

Don’t have much track record yet with Frank Curzio, but he appears to be a careful analyst, sincere and dedicated and willing to go the extra mile with subscribers.I have bought DEER and am watching with interest. I would caution that the Stansberry group are generally not for investor newbies, and suspect they would agree.

I ranked it 3 stars on performance and consistency since it is a very new offering and doesn’t have a track record. I ranked it 5 on value and interesting to read since the initial subscription price was only $99 and Frank writes good articles. He also has an excellent podcast that is free to everyone. My main complaint about the service so far is that Frank has a tendency to go after stocks with very low volume, perhaps this is normal with under 10 stocks, but it does wreak havoc when he publishes his picks. As your rightly guessed,… Read more »

I first heard Frank on Andrew Horowitz’s Disciplined Investor podcast and was impressed with his keen insight. Frank also has his own podcast, S&A Investor Radio. My $99 subscription is good value. I believe it is now $250. He offers good analysis of stocks ‘around $10’. I actually am glad he is not holding steadfast to his $10 limit in his quest for stock buy recommendations. As with all stock evaluations you have to do your homework too. So far so good. I will be able to give a more objective evaluation in a few more months. As a subscriber… Read more »

I took up Frank on his introductory offer of $99 for the Penny Stock Specialist and was quickly upsold to two years for $250 with a 30-day money back guarantee. Frank is passionate and well schooled in fundamental analysis of stocks and has a good grasp of the markets and macro-economy. His free podcast is quite educational and entertaining. As it turned out, I did take advantage of the 30-day money back guarantee because I felt that the picks were a bit too risky for my taste and I was bothered by the fact that although the new picks were… Read more »

The MONEYGEEK review is spot on. Many of Frank’s picks have been bid up very quickly, either in AH or early morning trading and you can’t even participate. I don’t think this is due to advance knowledge but that Frank picks very thinly traded stocks and even a few thousand shares can move the price up high. If you wait for the initial rush to die down you can sometimes get it at a lower price. What is really alarming is the very large number of picks that got stopped out at 25% or more below the initial buy price.… Read more »

Penny Stock Specialist

Frank Curzio does a good job of finding low priced stocks with good prospects. I have had mixed success due also to the more volatile nature of this catagory. His picks are not like all the spam and junk mail paid recos we all seem to get in abundance. Worth subscribing to.

Frank is IMO one of the best small cap stock analysts out there. The newsletter name is a little bit misleading, since his picks also include names such as Citigroup with a market cap of 140 Billion USD. Barely a penny stock. Personally, I would NOT subscribe to the newsletter if Frank would indeed discuss penny stocks, but that’s just me. Frank offers good fundamental research and can be considered a “value guy”. I subscribed to the newsletter, because I’m a technical orinted short-term trader and hope to benefit from the fundamental insight. I’m carefully tracking performance of my “penny… Read more »

Frank has some really good picks. Biggest problem is to get the stock at his buy up to price. This is a problem in general with Stansberry. Most Stansberry picks are stocks with low volume and by the time you can get your order in the price has moved up. I realize it is tough to pick penny stocks with high volume. Stansberry should not be able to publish their cost on a stock until one day after the newsletter is published. Too many times they will crow about an incredible run up in their pick at a cost that… Read more »

As others have said, Frank is a good analyst. But the 25% stop-loss forces you to book a lot of losers, which quickly disappear from his published portfolio. It’s not as bad as his boss, Porter Stansberry, who plays the same game, but it still will drag down your rate of return. I’d rather see a multiple buy strategy where Frank takes another look at down 25% and makes a fresh decision on adding more or selling. One good thing Frank did when he joined Stansberry is ignore their incredible bearishness all through 2009. They totally missed the market upturn,… Read more »

I subscribed 15 months ago for $99 and they have upsold me numerous times – even after I talk myself out of it quite a few times first! Although the pitches ARE embarrassingly crass, I still get lured by something, so it’s clear to me their dreadful ads work. Being upsold to an alliance membership – one that costs $600 for a “lifetime” plus $150 a year maintenance(giving you ALL their $99 letters- 6 or 7 of them?) not only overwhelms me with spam, but ALSO overwhelms me with pure reading, ideas, picks and clashing takes on the market. Porter,… Read more »

This is a followup on Frank Curzio’s 2010 newsletter picks. First the good news: Charming Shoppes was bought out for a double. Next the lukewarm: TTWO is down only slightly. Now the awful: The others reeked. They include PUDA, COGO, S, NOA, FTEK, GST, and one stock that I didn’t sell as I should have because Frank lauded it so strongly. Overall a big loss, even if you used stop losses. Meanwhile an S&P Index fund would have gotten you better than 15% plus dividends for a return.

Win record was not impressive while I subscribed. Like all Weiss letters, guarantee is outstanding.
