What a load of crap. I watched the video and couldn’t help thinking 1) why doesn’t this guy show his face?? 2) If anyone buys into this crap, his predictions will come true i.e. gold will be bought up like crazy and hit $5000. an ounce and he will become rich..er!! Can you imagine the run on gold, silver, commodities like oil……..please don’t buy into this and drive the prices up any higher!!! 3) He’s got a great scam going, wish I could have gotten in early, or wish I could have thought of this, sell advice on the internet… Read more »

Just read the latest PSIA, which may be his best yet. Porter talks about the New American Socialism, how it differs from traditional socialism, and what to expect next. He includes a brief history and in-depth examples that are quite informative. He has a short recommendation but the real value this month (as it has been in the last several months) is in the education. Fascinating, and spot-on.

Notfallinforit, do you really think Stansberry can influence the price of gold? You might want to do some research on the gold markets before saying something like that. And you’ll notice he says to buy gold, and not some smallcap gold producer whose price he COULD manipulate. Sure, his marketing is full of hyperbole and scare tactics, but he hasn’t been wrong yet – things are playing out exactly how he said they would, years ago, beginning with teh fall of Lehman. The really scary people are Bernanke, Geithner, Obama, and the ECB. They are going to bring the world’s… Read more »

Been a subscriber for 4 months or so … seemed like a wealth of incoming information. They send you around 4 emails a day, 3 packed with advice and one or two asking for BIG dollars for some BS subscription to something else. Lost some $$ in some of their stupid recommendations (which they don’t seem to remember) but what bugs me is the changing position bit. Like they were hyping silver blah blah, then it tanks, and they still hype it – now that it’s fallen they say – “We told you so – we told you to be… Read more »

I have been a subscriber for a few months and overall I have been quite satisfied. I am a novice investor and the topics in the actual advisories have taught me a lot and given me ammo for my own research. I haven’t had enough time to give a fair rating of stock performance, but I will say that the recommendation to buy silver has been a good one. I owned silver before my subscription and bought more plus a number of other stock recommendations since my subscription. I watched silver ride from $17 all the way up to almost… Read more »

I subscribed about 3 months ago and am waiting to see what happens to some of the recommendations before putting in real money from my IRA. What bothers me is all the junk that comes associated with the trial subscription, that wants you to put bigger bucks in esoteric newsletters ($2400 for the junk stock letter) which purvy conflicting advice. My wife asked an interesting question: if they’re so smart, why don’t they make their money investing instead of selling newsletters–is it altruism or ????

Good question from your wife, daddy warbucks. They’ve addressed this in the past (but not recently). They can’t buy their own recommendations but they can buy other editors’ reco’s, after the newsletter has gone public. They also buy similar assets to what they recommend. For example, if Steve is bullish on gold he may recommend Seabridge, but buy another gold stock, or an ETF, or bullion.

I think Porter’s motivation is more power than money. I get the impression he wants to be talked about. Guess he succeeded there.

Stansberry has also mentioned his aversion to running money several times. He doesn’t want to manage others’ money because then he would be under the purview of the SEC. Too much hassle, he says. Plus, he and the SEC have locked horns before.

Simple Chris, we subscribed so unlike you actually we do know what are we reviewing here. BTW, the latest series of Porter’s free articles beginning with http://www.dailywealth.com/1773/New-American-Socialism may cause foam around the mouth of many liberals, perhaps Chris included. So while Porter declares his lack of interest in politics at an elective position he definitely has the passion to educate the public in a simple way what’s really going on. Which also explains his troubles with the government agency FDIC. As for IRA, the Retirement Letter is best, try it when it comes on sale. Dr. Eiffig recommendations are 100%… Read more »

As I have said many times sevens/Porter/DickG, I paid $49 for my subscription and I am not a liberal. I am a conservative and my objections to your get rich quick marketing has nothing to do with politics. It has all to do with misleading people into thinking you have tricks and computer programs, ect. to guarantee results. Like the Russian Spyware (which is a lie) and the Grail (another lie) and the 32% clause (which is just junk bonds) and the secret messiah (which is just a investment advisor and nothing more), and the $5 to get passwords to… Read more »

Porter Stansberry Investment Advisory I like Porter’s editorials on the big picture but it appears that he has a too pessimistic view of individual stocks. He continually harps that you should be shorting certain stocks. He states these stocks should be going to zero. His shorts picks as of 9/9/2010 were BC 14.32, AMD $5.86, EWI 15.70, BKS 15.40, GCI 13.22, WDC 25.95, STX 11.03, GE 15.91, AEP 36.35. As of today all of these stocks are higher. He may also not be giving you the best picks in the market because he doesn’t allow himself or his employees to… Read more »

I subscribe to PSIA as well as all of the Stansberry & Associates (S&A) Newsletters except for Phase 1 (this is 16 newsletters!). I trust they will be around for a long, long time and I look at them as an investment for me and my family. Nothing in life is free. They cover everthing and keep getting better and better. With S&A, you can invest into 3 different types of lifetime services; Private Wealth Alliance gives you a lifetime of the 7 lower priced newsletters including PSIA. This is a truly great buy and should give 80% of the… Read more »

I wrote a review earlier today before reading other recent reviews. My gosh people… try to see through the advertising! It is ther simply to lure people in one at a time. My advice is to get one of the S&A newsletters, PSIA, True Wealth or 12% Letter. Ignore the advertising when it comes to getting any additional individual newsletter for half off. Remember they have 15 others they will tease you with. But wait for the opportunity when they offer the lifetime Private Wealth Alliance, Flex Alliance or S&A Alliance. Then jump in. You will not regret it. I… Read more »

The S&A Alliance is a one-time fee, typically around $5,000 (and trending up as they get more newsletters). There is also a yearly “maintenence fee” of $150 or so. As JT mentioned, you get everything they publish except for Phase One, plus a free conference every year. Well, the conference is free but you have to get yourself there and pay for the hotel, which is usually quite expensive (although you could stay at the Motel 6 down the road, I suppose). They were in Aspen one year and Cancun the next, both of which I attended. I definitely felt… Read more »

Chris, Actually it’s 15 newsletters. The S&A Alliance runs 10K now, too much for me. The Private Wealth Alliance was $650, with yearly fee of $149. This includes the 12%Letter, PSIA, True Wealth, Penny Stock Specialist, Resource Report, Insider Statagist & Retirement Millionare. I read these, but I only act on True Wealth recs. The rest are sometimes repeats from the more expensive letters. The Flex Alliance allows you to get any 5 newsletters for life. You can switch whenever you like. So in essence you can actually get all the 15 newsletters, just not all at once. It’s easy… Read more »

I did not buy any of their serivces after I watched the video in March, 2011. But I took their advices and bought some silver and that was the best decision I ever made. I then went to their website every day to read free articles and observed what was happening, guessed what? I realized whatever Port said in the video is becoming true. I just subscribed to the retirement million because I need to know how to get my money out of my 401K without paying a cent of penalty. Also I want to say this: those people who… Read more »

PORTER STANSBERRY HAS A LONG HISTORY WITH THE SEC….HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED FOR DEFRAUDING HIS SUBSCRIBERS AND PRICE MANIPULATION. THE SEC HAS BEEN AFTER HIM FOR OVER A DECADE AND IS STILL ON HIS TAIL. HE MAKES MILLIONS FROM YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS PAWNING YOU OFF TO VARIOUS SELF PROCLAIMED FINANCIAL GURUS.

Kristofo (March 28),
Many thanks for your summary of the contents of the various Stansberry tips; you’ve saved me the subscription costs – and I’d have been somewhat peeved to pay to see SLW as the silver tip, since I’ve owned it for the last couple of years…as for Farmland being the best asset to hold, well, I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion – but anyone who bought CRESY at the start of 2011 will be 25% or so down now..

I can’t remember exactly when I started subscribing, because I now subscribe to numerous info sources, some free, some expensive, but I probably started in late 2008. Until then I had been out of the market and into real estate for a number of years (made some, lost some, but fortunately didn’t get creamed), so as luck would have it I had some cash on hand. My daughter had decided to get married and wanted me to help finance her expensive wedding so I had taken out a new mortgage and promptly realized I would have to invest some of… Read more »

Basically everybody who thinks this is a scam complains about the other offers that come with the news letter. Hey these guys are in business to make money, so sure they are going to try to sell you other stuff. I feel that for 50 bucks, this is a no brainer, I mean I lose 50 bucks on a hand of black jack, so really, to me this is no rip off. There is quite a bit of interesting information in these letters.

This letter appears to be nothing more than a sales tool for additional stock letters. Granted I’m a new subscriber, but this just seems to a general market analysis and has rarely offered any new stock picks.

Dick, I didn’t get mixed up, (and you proved again that you work for S&A) you have presented get rich quick “advise” in the form of a newsletter. NOT marked advertising but in an actual newsletter (sometimes the exact same information is marked clearly “advertisement”). But the good news is that since i began complaining about it, the occurances have decreased, someone must be listening, Is it you Dick

In the October 2011 issue of Porter Stansberry’s Investment Advisory he said: “From November 2008 through March 2010, we were extremely bullish on stocks. And we were right: The period from March 2009 through March 2011 was one of history’s greatest increases in stock prices in the shortest amount of time. Stocks hadn’t doubled in two years since the election of Dwight Eisenhower.” Yes, it was an exciting two years. However, I noticed right away that he got off the bus in March 2010 and missed the whole second year of the rally. Also, he got on the bus, according to him, in… Read more »

I took these guys up on their money back guarantee because I was curious about their teasers. I looked over their recommendations for the first half of 2012 and was not overly impressed. They generally seemed to consist of poorly timed “tips” on specific stocks recommended because of some grand story of profits that might come in some distant future, such as a new cure for cancer, or a new replacement for gas and oil. April, as I recall was major banks, which he lamented in May fell below the recommended 25% stop (no big surprise to those of us… Read more »

This guy is really smoking something. Hope you were not a sucker that fell for his dollar Armageddon video on youtube. Fact is dollar has creamed all other world currencies in the past year. One point in the video he says that Indian have stopped accepting dollar. In the past year, Indian Rupee has been in a free fall against dollar. Dropped from 40 Rs to dollar to $57 Rs to dollar. He talks about alternate reserve currency by Chinese, Russians and Euro nations. Really? you trust these jokers more than America.

One more thing, that gold chart he shows every few seconds… reminds me of the housing bubble chart before it went pop. Beware of buying any asset that has had a 500% run up in the past decade. It is running on steroids and then some.

I dropped SIA to focus on two Stansberry offerings from which I get more value, namely Daily Wealth Trader and 12% Letter. SIA offers 2 stocks per month along with a ton of economic and political commentary. I’m willing to put up with longwinded prose if the picks are commonly exemplary, but they’re not. SIA has the occasional big hitter but average otherwise. Subscribers get a regular diet of promo emails for other Stansberry newsletters and services which usually have a link to a video. You can short circuit the video by closing your browser tab. You’ll get a message… Read more »

Here’s all you need to know about this doofus, in his own words: “Last December, the European Central Bank (ECB) began lending money (giving it away, really) to the region’s banks, in an effort to prop up sovereign bond markets. This was a signal that the ECB would not let European Union states default on their debts. The central bank was choosing inflation over default… as we knew it would. And to prevent a default, we know it would have to print trillions of new euros. That’s why we decided for the first time since early 2010 to become aggressive… Read more »

I have subscribed on and off to PSIA for four years. I say on and off because after the first year, I cancelled but then came back in to the subscription after a compelling offer that came out to come back an try again. The company has always held its integrity, though you may not know it based on the reviews here, in that Porter and his team are very transparent. He is happy to show when he failed, as evidenced by this year’s “report card” when he gave himself an “F” due to having the premise right but the… Read more »

Stansberry has a policy that the newsletter writers cannot taste their own cooking. They can’t buy any of their recommendations. Thus I believe that the subscribers get only their 2nd best recommendation because they have invested in their first pick. Example: Stansberry keeps on touting NLY yet you would never have heard a peep about AGNC which has considerably higher returns.

I have subscribed to a number of Porter Stansberry’s newsletters, and Weber’s Global Opportunity Report for a few years. While they are an interesting read, the Stansberry newsletters’ recommendations and follow-ups did not create a sense of safety. There is no broad fundamental view on the conditions that drive the stock-market rises and falls within which the stock pick are referenced. Persuasive reference to context is missing. I have recently subscribed to Sean Hyman’s Ultimate Wealth Report and despite the many negative and vitriolic, even, comments about him personally (and not his actual stock picks for the most part), I… Read more »

I complained to Stansbury Research about their arrogant and incessant marketing practices, and their ridicule of me becasue I chose not to subscribe to one of their more expensive services. Their response was to cancel my subsritption to SIA and refund the unused portion (about 10 months). I’ve been a subscriber for more than 3 years but now apparently I’m not deemed worthy of their services. Interesting approach to doing business, wouldn’t you say. Bottom line, if you plan on subscribing to any of S&A’s services, be prepared to be deluged with never ending emails soliciting you to purchase addtional… Read more »

I subscribed for a while but I did not understand
much what is their reason to recommend.
When I tried to cancel by e-mail, they said they do not accept thru e-mail, I have to phone them.
I called to take off auto renewal setting on all
subscriptions but they did only one subscription.
So I called to cancel all subscriptions to end.
