sent payment for a 2 year subscription of Mike Burnicks Real wealth newsletter , received one month and asked about theemaining months and no comment or reply. Poor business ethics

Gary,
If you paid for a 2 year subscription, it needs to be honored. If they don’t fulfill that 2 year request, you can contact your Credit Card company that was billed and have it credited as your credit card company can advocate for you. I would get a credit and not give the firm another chance to make good on this 2 year subscription as there response to you was not only unprofessional, but non-responsive. What does that say about their commitment to you and others?

Time for a class action suit! Weiss selling memberships to the Eldelson Institute in the days leading up to Larry’s passing. Immoral and unethical! Dumping lifetime subscribers in such an unprofessional way!

Matt Badiali has lost me so many times over in the last 3 months. Add up a few hundred here and there and it becomes thousands lost. Badiali’s comments are…… cut your losees quickly, rotate back into cash so you have more to spend elsewhere. Do these guys actually work for a living and understand how hard it is to save money, and then invest it in these hi – flying stocks like Marijuana, Cobalt, lithium etc, only to get crushed.????? anyone out there want to acknowledge this bull shit?
Thanks
Steve Scott

Larry was the one who actually knew what he was talking about. Most of the others knew very little and should be working in a different field. Which is maybe why it all came to an end.

MIKE,
BASED ON YOUR DECEMBER GOLD CHART, WE ARE IN A VERY STRONG GOLD BULL MARKET UNTIL ABOUT FEB 20th. THEN IT TOPS & FALLS OFF BADLY DOWN TO MAY 22 BOTTOM.
DO YOU EXPECT TO WAIT UNTIL MAY 22nd TO GIVE A BUY SIGNAL (BACK UP THE TRUCK) FOR MINING STOCKS ???? IF NOT, WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT PLAN ???? PLEASE ADVISE !!!!!!!!!!!

Mike is no longer in the picture. Nor is Weiss, Inc, it seems. Matt Badiali (at Banyan Hill) is our new guru, and the service is Real Wealth Strategist. Check your e-mail for info from Martin and Matt about this transfer.

Big surprise for Real Wealth and Safe Money subscribers: It appears that Martin has offloaded both to Banyan Hill. Not unexpectedly, Martin blathered on about how wonderful the move will be for subscribers. No adieu or best wishes from either Mike Burnick or Bill Hall (presumably they were fired or quit; I’d guess the former), and no mention of what to do with current portfolios. Just an unceremonious dumping of thousands of subscribers into two Banyan Hill services with that do not appear to be connected in any way to Weiss despite Martin’s proclamation that Weiss and BH have “joined… Read more »

I really like the Real Wealth report as it is concise and the buy price and stop losses are completely clear. I havent subscribed long enough to know if I will make money but so far it seems ok. The best thing of all is there is no waffle or endless teasers.

Sorry to hear Larry recently passed away. Let’s see how his successors perform.

I have been a member of the Real Weath Report for 6 months now. Larry’s presentations are pretty OK and his macro economy analyses on war cycles and stuff are interesting as well. His predictions are somtimes pretty accurate as well, like; the ones on Brexit, Trump and the turning point in goldprice in October. Unfortunately above is not enough to predict markets in such a way you can earn money from it, as markets react different than Larry predicts; as markets rallied after Trumps election and gold has gone down after the early October tempory increase and the Dow… Read more »

I got caught in that exact same scenario. The day Larry called the “end” of the market crash I told my husband I’m putting all of my positions back in. I went to my office to do that, and Martin’s newsletter said it’s going down further. I really never jumped back in. Stupid. I wrote them the riot act that day about completely opposite views from an affiliated team.

I subscribed to Larry’s Real Wealth Report in 2012 and created a watch list based on his recommendations back then … I haven’t really paid a lot of attention to it in the last couple of years recently, I pulled up the watch list and to my surprise it was up over 60% only 2 losers on the list due to Larry’s bullish vie on China but I know as of spring of this year he reversed his view on that so the profits could have been even more … here is the list OverviewOverviewPerformancePerformanceFundamentalsFundamentalsStreamingStreaming Date Added Country Symbol Name… Read more »

I like Larry Edelson’s newsletters and have subscribed for a number of years. His outlooks often mirror my own, which is many cases is wrong! I just subscribed to his super cycle trader service (I did not find the super cycle trader included in the gum shoe list of investment newsletters). Some of the trades were against his overall trend expectations, so I did not participate; which was good for the most part because any profits were quite small and stops were hit. I also didn’t participate in a DXD purchase because I was sure his stop was going to… Read more »

I have been with real wealth report since about Oct. 2013. I wish I wasn’t. He has senstational commentary, but I have not seen anything right so far, and his “cycles” have been very wrong. When gold hit its lows end of 2013, he was strictly against getting in at low prices, calling for sub 900, until it went over 1300. And then obviously at 1240 now, it proved wrong again and you would have lost all your confidence. Bonds is another interesting matter. The firm has been calling crash of bonds for 2014 when 30 years were about 128.… Read more »

I have followed Larry Edelson’s advice for several years. He is consistent but often his timing is off in both directions. His advice was only so-so last year (2012), but to date, I have profited and am depending on him over and above the other (several) newsletters to which I subscribe. The subscription price is well worth it.

I have subscribed to Real Wealth Report for several years, back when gold was less than $300 an ounce. Since this newsletter targets natural resources, overall I have done well. Larry uses technical analysis, which is very good, and cycle analysis, which can be right on or completely wrong. His latest recos to short the S&P during the recent run up probably cost his subscribers a bit of cash; I did not follow this advice as I have been burned before with the cycle studies. His macroeconomic reviews are interesting and this is the principal reason I still subscribe. Real… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber for about 3 years and will be for several more years. Sometimes I buy a stock from Larry’s portfolio, sometimes I buy a stock from my own research, and sometimes I make a best guess. Larry focuses on natural resources and that’s the important aspect for me to be subscribed to Real Wealth. I’ve learned a lot from reading his information. As of the July 2011 issue, Larry’s portfolio performance is down 1.26%, mine is slightly higher.

Larry has had a bad year , picking numerous losers.Although he installs stops, this all costs the subcribers money. This is reflected in RWRs poor return in 2011.
Larry also completely missed silvers movements, almost like he had a grudge against it in its early days.
In my opinion this report should be read only for general interest , forget about acting on the reccomendations.Too low returns overall, at best.

He believes in his systems but in the case of precious metals, the historical timelines he uses do not factor in random events. These include contagion in the Middle East and N. Africa, and a short squeeze in silver that has led to physical shortages. Frankly, six weeks ago he didn’t even take silver seriously. Larry spins his predictions to imply success but he is not the market timer (DOW 9600 declared a year ago)that he thinks he is.

Very cutting edge & educational. Larry backs up his theories with history & facts.

He recommends natural resource/contra dollar investments and uses stop losses & portfolio allocation to reduce risk. Based on $100K, Larry recommends how many shares of a security to purchase.

He uses his own proprietary software for market timing. Although short term timing is more difficult, his intermediate & longer term timing seems more reliable. He correctly called the crash of 2008 & had subscribers into cash. He sends out Flash Alerts when needed.

I feel confident having Larry help navigate me through this treacherous market.

Following Weiss group advice was a bad decision. I lost money.

Finally, I realized that the only good adviser of the group is Larry Edelson.

I no longer listen to the others’ advice.

Larry is the only one I kept and trust in the Weiss group. He also wisely renamed his free newsletter Uncommon Wisdom and no longer writes under the Money and Market which I unsubscribed to after losing much money with Claus’ Million Dollar Portfolio (now should be renamed Million penny portfolio after many losing picks), and Jack Crook’s World Currency Options and World Currency ETFs. Often Larry disagrees with Weiss as to the direction of the markets. Weiss constantly says the market will tank but it never does. Larry called the March 2009 rally but Weiss still said the market… Read more »

I completely agree with E.Matt. I’ve had a subscription to Safe Money since 2001 and then Larry Edelson was part of the speculative group. His picks have been absolutely great and I have made quite a bit of money even to trippling (is that a word) my Roth. Only part i do is buy and sell if there are dips which i’m not sure he recommends although he does put stops on, I simply use stop loss %. the Martin Weiss part is the perma bear section I read but don’t go with if contraray to either Edelson or ….… Read more »

Somehow I stumbled upon the Weiss group and Agora and get Larry in Uncommon Wisdom from the former and Steve MacDonald’s weekly wrap from the latter emailed to me free, no subscription. Both are entertaining and informative. So at that price I am going to give Larry five stars for value. I am not tempted to the Real Wealth report, the tax situation and opportunities are different in UK to US. I think his analysis of economies and currencies is quite good and he did put me into US MLP’s in March 09 – what a bargain that has proved… Read more »

Yeah, his timing is just as bad as the rest of the clowns at MAM. Back when the Euro hit below 1.1900 a couple of months ago and Europe was going to fall into the never ending black hole, MAM including Larry said death to the Euro and the next leg is around the corner get out now, HURRY!!!!! Well just like clockwork, the Euro is almost 10% higher since that watershed call they had. If you would have sold your FXE position, you would have sold at the absolute low. These guys are terrible.

I must, unfortunately, echo a lot of the negative that has been said about Weiss et al. They are quite a group of hucksters, always trying to tease you to another premium service or newsletter, all the while with Martin’s never-ending stories about (read: deification of) his father. Around a year ago they added some self-proclaimed experts on macroeconomic cycles. You would NOT know it by their predictive failings since then. Unlike the other posters here, I am not going to say that the Weiss et al people are insincere or trying to rip you off, but they have had… Read more »

Since April 2017, when Marckyle posted this, OBMP has gone from $0.25 to $0.08. He claims (in a post below) not to be a “pump and dump” promoter; so he must just be a misguided investor who bought OBMP just after it had peaked in March, and he’s lost money ever since. As he rightly says, though, “do your own research.” But certainly, don’t follow his lead! :-p Regarding Real Wealth Report, I haven’t followed them; but reading their most recent mailer, which I received today, it’s clear Mike Burnick is trying to follow in Larry Edelson’s footsteps with his… Read more »

I have been a Real Wealth subscriber since 2004 and remain a subscriber for Larry’s macro-economic insights, views, and trend analysis. In this light I have seen no one better than Larry. His timing may not always be right on the mark and his individual stock picks aren’t always the best, but his views are on the mark and have been since 2004. I simply use the newsletter as input to my decisions, and I view his recommendations as just that – recommendations. Sometimes I act on them and sometimes I don’t.

All, I have turned off all alerts to MAM but got a letter in the mail for Real Wealth to lock in for 2 years at $89. He must have had some poor performance to offer this steep discount. I threw in the towel on Larry last year as he was the last midget standing after all of the other subscription debacles (just read them on this site Safe Money, MCP, Rapid whatever). They are all complete garbage. Larry, if you read this blog and you should, I wouldn’t even read your letter if it was free (unless I needed… Read more »

Does anyone have Larry’s performance for the 2008 market downturn? Everyone, except Claus Vogt, looks good for 2009. What was Larry telling his subscribers at the end of 2007?

Just started this summer. I have been trying several newsletters since last spring, many of them with an end of the world flavour written by gold bugs: Jay Taylot, The Gold and Oil Guy,Real Wealth, Chris Mayer Capital and Crisis/Special Situation. Mayer called the best shots by far. Real Wealth was OK. I did not follow many of his Larry’s recos as many companies he recommends are Chinese. I personally don’t trust small Chinese companies that much so I stuck to some basic companies like Statoil, Goldcorp, etc. However, I won’t renew. I am sick and tired of the gold… Read more »

I am a new subscriber (2 months) of the Real Wealth Report. I sounded like a good option to protect part of my portfolio from what’s going on this crazy financial world right now. Unfortunately I read from these reviews that Real Wealth Report also does not appear to be a good hiding spot to preserve my wealth and make some extra money. If the Real Wealth Report does not work for the folks in this review, which comparable newsletter does? Could someone post some good alternatives to the Real Wealth Report here? Thanks!

Just like another blogger noted the first stock out of the box was an inverse gold ETF. What a disaster, he says they’re small losses but when you add the commission fees in it’s much worse than he would have you believe. He says he’s in Bangkok but I’ve seen him here in Jupiter Florida about five times in the last several months so I’m not sure what the story with that is. Being a Martin Weiss stooge, no I mean Weiss analyst he’s only doing moderately well because the market is doing very well. Larry has a tendency to… Read more »

All, Well, I finally threw in the towel on Larry and Real Wealth as well. I cannot stand anything Maritn Weiss. I did a couple of trades with Larry and lost money as well (however not as big but still a loss). His first pick was to buy the short ETF for gold (lost on that one which is par for the course). Over 95% of all of my trades with all Weiss subscriptions have lost me money and I cannot take it anymore. None of them can pick a stock to save their life. I have a better chance… Read more »

I wish this site had a way to update a review. I entered a review just yesterday, and then realized I really hadn’t done my complete due diligence on Edelson’s Real Wealth report. I spend about 12 hours analyzing every trade the service has recommended since 2004. There could be some flaws with the data I downloaded, but I’m pretty sure it’s in the ballpark. The service started mid-2004. I am only evaluating the trading advice. Larry advises investors to keep about 15-20% of their portfolio in gold- bullion, & gold funds like GLD. The other 80% he trades in… Read more »

Subscribed 3 months ago. Close to break even. Best pick: RTP. Worst Pick: None have been terrible, but with the most recent pullback about 50% have stopped out for losses. Pros: Specific monthly guidance on natural resource picks with entry points and stops. Metals, water, energy. Cons: Don’t expect more than monthly guidance. It’s not clear his best picks are given out to those of us in the cheap seats. Constant upselling to more expensive subscriptions. Some of his best pickes are in ‘bonus’ reports, and as such, are not guided or included in the core portfolio. That leaves it… Read more »

So far so good with Larry since March 10th 09. Wish I had listened to him that first month as I was also short the market with Martin Weiss and lost a bundle on the market’s rebound. I’ve gained most of that back – some with Larry’s advice, some with advice from others and my own picks. Glad I didn’t do Claus’s contrarian portfolio, as I was very close but decided not to since I was not happy with their “hold” rec’s on the shorts while I was watching my gains go down the tubes.

Stumbled into Larry’s Real Wealth after cancelling Million Dollar Portfolio because Larry uses a more technical approach in trading than a fundamental approach which lost me some money in this recent rally. Larry and Claus seemed to have opposing views on the stock market but the bottom line is that Larry’s recommendations made back the money I lost from MCP and then some. I also made back some losses incurred with other newsletters as well. One of them is Andrew Gordon’s Red Flag Insider. Larry does acknowledge that the economy is still in the dumps and gold and commodities will… Read more »

All, I have had this subscription for 2 months and the jury is still out for me. This is my last Weiss subscription as all of the other ones have LOST ME TONS OF MONEY. Just see my posting on this site under “Million Dollar Contrairan Portfolio”. This sums up The Weiss Group and it subscriptions. Unlike all of the other clowns at Weiss, Larry seems better to a degree (ie tallest midget at the moment). However, I know his strategy is natural resources but he is all over the board with cycle timing and than flips back to fundamentals.… Read more »

Larry Edelson’s Real Wealth has made some very good picks recently, accurately taking advantage of the strong up move. Unfortunately, he publishes at Weiss Research and I also have a subscription to Martin Weiss’ SAFE MONEY, which continually preaches the sky is falling. Thus I didn’t take any of Edelson’s long recommendations and missed out completely! He uses CYCLE analysis to help with timing and apparently he’s quite good at it. Buys are generally in the natural resources which makes sense to me. Cost of the service is low too, $99/yr if I remember correctly. Overall, highly recommended!
