Missed the whole runup due to these guys doom & gloom. They forget the whole thing is manipulated by greedy, immoral people who are now in charge of tax payers money. They should rename Gall Street & the Gov. to Ganks as they are one
entity!

Repeated numerous times before, Marting Weiss is a perma bear. Missed the 90’s bull market. You always should be careful of an investment advisor with a set in stone mentality. He will always have his moments of glory (the stopped watch theory) like October 2008 until March 2009. And do you really need an investment advisory to put your cash in a Treasury Fund? I think if you have money to burn his newsletter is a good read for a counter-point on whats going on in the market. He was one of the early ones to see the mortgage crisis.… Read more »

To Everyone, If you haven’t figured it out yet, Martin and all of his clowns crystal ball is a rear view mirror. As you know, if you drive looking at your rear view mirror only/all the time, you will get in a car crash 100% of the time!!!! For those of you that don’t understand my analogy, Martin’s picks almost lose 100% of the time. These guys only tell you news that already happened and they base thier predictions based on old/current news which is already priced into the stock. For example: 1) He sent a note out last month… Read more »

Have been a subscriber for three years. Martin has become greedy to the point of focusing primarily on selling his expensive “premium” services. These services seem to be ridiculously overpriced. Based on the performance of his Safe Money recommendations, I would not touch his “premium” services even if fairly priced. I will not renew Safe Money.

Started with Martin in 2002 after I lost $$$$ in the tech bubble. He was the first contrarian I ever followed & I swore by him. As much as I find his economic analysis excellent his stock picks (which were once decent) were consistently getting bad. Eventually I subscribed to Larry Edelson’s Real Wealth. Larry seems to have a better handle on future market trends. While Larry touts his propritary software for market timing, I do stop out of many of his recos for a loss. However, looking ahead.. if/when natural resource stocks really explodes this newsletter will be a… Read more »

I first subscribed to Safe Money in Feb 2009. I read all the hype about how he had picked the Market Turn, etc. I was actually thinking about following his recommendations. Till this day I don’t trully know why I didn’t. If I did, I would still be puking all over the stack of Safe Money Reports I have. The Market just made a turnaround at the right time and since then hasn’t looked back – and niether have I. I need to agree with the folks above. Some of his recent picks and early Gold recommendations are in the… Read more »

I used to work for the largest wall street brokerage firms. In 2002 I read Weiss’ “The Great Panic of 2003-2004”. This gave me more insight into the risk in the markets and essentially convinced me to get the hell out. In 2004 I started my own business that is not cyclical with the economy. Thanks to Weiss, this was the push I needed to make the move. I was especially concerned with real estate prices b/c home prices were WAY above the historical trend of household incomes. I moved to cash in May 2006, and boringly waited it out.… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber since before the Tech Burst. Martin called it well ahead of the occurrence. Shortly after the tech burst he warned of surging oil prices and housing bubble years before their occurrence. Ditto on the banks, mortgages, and 2008-2009 housing collapse. As a true, independent, contrarian, I read a bunch of stuff, and pick my own portfolio, so I cannot comment on individual “picks.” What Martin is saying has come to pass in the lost decade. Truly, overall, since 1999, we have been in a Bear Market, akin to the 30’s. Martin has based his research on… Read more »

When you subscribe to Safe Money Report you get a modest amount of worthwhile information. You also receive an endless number of emails urging you to subscribe to their very pricey “premium” services. Save your money!

I have subscribed to one or more of the Weiss et al products for around 7 years. I have to primarily agree with the negative commentary. Weiss is pretty much a permabear. Claus Vogt, one of the better if not the best, Weiss analyst, is not and has helped me regain some of the money that I lost following Weiss and Edelson. Their timing is HORRIBLE. In fact, if you were to do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what they recommended WHEN they recommended such, you probably would have a rather nice portfolio. Overall, I would recommend NOT buying their products… Read more »

I subscribed to Safe Money and Real Wealth for a few years, several years ago; and though I let my subscriptions lapse I still regularly read the e-mailed version of M&M, which I think useful. I read with interest, but did not act on, the Weiss recommendations over the years; instead chasing CD rates, etc. and so I lost nary a dime during the “great recession” and market crash of the last few years. Of course, I missed the earlier “boom years”, and the more recent partial “recovery” too. Saving, not “investing”, has kept me at least solvent; and today… Read more »

I have been with the Safe Money Report for over 10 years. I have found Martin and his writers to be very interesting and fairly accurate when it comes to picking stocks, but what I like best are the areas of investment that I would have never discovered on my own. Their predictions on major events tend to be real early but surprisingly accurate. Not all picks work out and I don’t trade every recommendation either, I use the service more for direction and timing. I have found SMR and their other publications to be a big help in managing… Read more »

There is some interesting reading, but the endless pitches for bigger and better ideas for just a few dollars more is a real putoff. I’m already paying for the advice, what kind of clown admits he’s peddling mediocre goods?

This letter saved my butt twice when it was written by Dr. Weiss. Not as good or as interesting since Mike Larson is writing it. Guarantee is outstanding.

Investment performance spotty. Good during crises, but overly conservative in the great 2012-2015 QE bubble and the 2016-17 rebound. Good instincts, though. Like many, Larson was lacking in the imagination to foresee just how far central banks and financial markets would take asset prices in a world where economic reality has limited influence over, say, stock prices. As he himself named it, we’re living in the “everything bubble.” Larson concentrated on credit markets, which is a good place to start any analysis and much better than starting with equities. That alone made it worth reading. And it did use the… Read more »

Last year Mike Larson predicted that bank stocks were going to tank disastrously and recommended significant investment in financial reverse ETFs. As a result I bought SEF, only to lose a big hunk of my investment when financials went sharply UP with the election of President Trump. Larson’s reasons seemed plausible at the time but I don’t pay him to be plausible. It was the capstone of my experience of a long number of years as a SAFE MONEY REPORT subscribers, during which my total results were at best borderline. They recently phoned me about renewal and I told them… Read more »

In my opinion, Weiss has missed many investment returns because they seem to favor Conservative Republicans when history has taught us otherwise… In my opinion, they were very negative during Clinton which was wrong, then positive in Cheney/bush which was wrong, then negative during Obama which was wrong and now positive during Trump, which may also be wrong… Publications such as Forbes, Fortune and the Huffington Post have written articles which demonstrate that the markets do much better during Liberal Progressive Democratic Administrations with Majority Democratic Congresses , yet Weiss seems to be going the opposite direction, again, in my… Read more »
