These are all paid plants by newsmax. Please all you honest guys say out loud the GREAT picks you had
RIG down %50-60 percent
HLF down 40 %
GEOS he said to by by the truckload when it AT 50$ NOW ITS 28
Dםont worry Newsmax will have someone else post a week later saying its great. Let them post their actual trades they claim to have been great. I paid for it based on this website reviews but it is obvious that this a scam

I am definitely not a “plant,” and you are incorrect in some of your analysis. For instance, at Spetrino’s rec, i bought HLF at 49, and now it is at 61. So, everything else you wrote I do not give much validity.

I have subscribed since 2013 and have made five figure profits off his picks.

So some of his picks didn’t work out? How many analyst have a 100% success rate? How many analysts post their track record for all to see, the losses as well as the wins? GEOS he recommended at one time, but later advised us to sell when it failed to produce. HLF was indeed down at one point but is now up from my original buy in at at 50.75 a share to 74.03 for a 46% gain. RIG is down as well, but how many OIL related stocks are up right now? I bought AAPL when it was $63… Read more »

Mr. Daniel Hirsch, I am NOT a plant from News Max. Yes RIG is down but HLF is not down %40 from its recommended price. Geos is down but its a SMALL portion of the portfolio, in the aggressive portion. I’ve subscribed since 2010 and have done very well. MO at $16, Apple at $64. Bill’s record is real. You can look at the numbers of TDM record. They are there for All to see. You should cancel your subscription immediately and move on. Great long term investing is NOT day trading. And, before you say I am a plant… Read more »

And let me tell you one more thing Mr. Hirsch,

Bill Spetrino’s newsletter is evaluated and rated by Mark Hulbert in the Hulbert Financial Digest where he has evaluated the advice of over 180 news letters since 1980. The Dividend Machine has been consistently ranked at the TOP!
Anyone can subscribe to TDM and see the record in the back. If you don’t like your subscription, you can cancel and get a refund.

I just saw the exchange between Hirsh and Meadows. Like Meadows I am NOT a plant. I subscribe to TDM and belong to Spetrino’s BIO where we have meaningful discussions about investing and specific stocks. I have been investing for 40 years and have come to know Bill Spetrino personally, as all BIO members have. He is one special person. He knows his stuff. And he sincerely wants to help others make money and great returns investing. I don’t know who Mr. Hirsch is or why he is being obnoxious but he doesn’t know what he he talking about when… Read more »

Please don’t lecture me about trading. I know a scam from newsmax like syean hyman and his bible code or other garbage. A newsletter that does not have the courage to tell their subscribers to cut their losses should not be on the business. After watching RIG go down and down and down and not tell anyone to get out but to BUY buy because Icahn is a smart guy etc. all I want to hear was for the year 2014 all picks what they performed when the market was roaring. Don’t tell me about apple which was recommended in… Read more »

You don’t know what you are talking about.
Bill pulled the plug on GEOS and sold at a loss. But the overall portfolio has done well.
I bought MO just last year at 34.5 aND NUAN and have done well. Rig us solid and energy is down. But bill talks more about his looser than his winners. Unlike Mr. Hyman.
Overall I think bill is fantastic

Hey Dan, let me remind you that I am not a plant but a paid subscriber. And by the way, Bill let’s his paid subscribers get to know and meet him personally if they want to. Yes I bought RIG and continue to hold it. Buying it was my choice and made on my analysis and like the entire world didn’t see the oil crash. But this is only one of many, many stocks from Bill. So let’s talk about Apple. Now over 140. Let’s talk about HLF now getting ready to breakout at 62 while most of Bill’s followers… Read more »

Dan, Bill Spetrino’s record in TDM is there for all to see. He has a RECORD of over 20% a YEAR! What are you looking for?? I AGREE TOTALLY that Sean Hyman and his Biblical code is silly, pure rubbish! However, the only connection to TDM is via News Max. C, GS, SVU, BAC, AAPL, JPM, TEVA and others were down and came back to be VERY profitable. Warren Buffet, the Oracle of Omaha himself has had some big bets drop like a stone and everyone thought he was knocked out only to come back roaring. This year, Spetrino’s pick… Read more »

I guess newsmax is really pumping this one. Please read a REAL REPORT by CBS http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bill-oreilly-update-this-is-not-a-scam/ He shows clearly this is a SCAM, Too bad they can’t go on their website and refute it. in the past year 2014 his pickings and STRONG ENCOURAGEMENT were GEOS (down by how much??) HLF, RIG, NUS, QCOM. These posters WD and the other did not post any new ideas. Read the Report by CBS. The way he calculates his profit is not at all transparent. The more newsmax tries to stop this by posting under these names, I am more determined to put… Read more »

Yep, my 27% portfolio return following Bill’s advice is fake, a scam, not real. 27% return in spite of RIG being down. Six out of the 7 stocks I’ve purchased through Bill have seen positive returns; pretty good return. Tell me what your portfolio return is Art.

Dan, You post anything you want. Go right ahead. Have at it you swarmy worm!@ . 90% of TDM is supposed to be allocated in the conservative portfolio. You keep citing the small allocations to the aggressive portfolio. Yes, GEOS is down but the entire energy sector is in the middle of an oil crash. I don’t know how you can call the newsletter a scam – unless you put ALL your money in the aggressive stocks – if so, its YOUR fault. TDM and Spetrino is evaluated and listed by Mark Hulbert of the Hulbert Digest. I supposed you… Read more »

And one more thing Dan!
Spetrino tells every reader to build your conservative Dividend Machine first before you go buying the aggressive stocks. You are very unfair to NOT consider the ENTIRE portfolio.

I too am a subscriber to TDM.
I recently stumbled on Kathy Kristoff’s article which directly attacks Spetrino’s character and credibility.
The allegations are very specific and therefore easily addressed by Mr Spetrino.
I think that Spetrino’s subscribers deserve an explanation to the allegations if they are not true and an apology and correction if they are true.
His subscriber’s should not be required to speculate.
The article is several years old and I think Spetrino would have addressed it by now-if he has I apologize.

I have been a TDM subscriber for going on 5 years now and am very pleased with the gains I have received following Spetrino’s picks. He is the only one that I know invests in his own recommendations and posts not only his gains but also his far and few between losses! These other newsletters are more interested in selling subscriptions than actually investing along with their subscribers. I used to follow a lot of these other newsletters, but found that that I lost money at worst or broke even at best! TDM, BIO, both by Bill, are the only… Read more »

Bill Spetrino is the real deal and anyone who has subscribed to his newsletter and actually reads it knows it’s filled with great information for investors. Bill never claims to be able to time the market but instead picks stocks that are undervalued mostly because of no good reason, irrational market fear and such. He does the hard work of looking closely at the stocks to figure out if they have real value. I have been investing with Bill Spetrino for three years and I’ve made money. Bill has taught me so much about investing and I will forever be… Read more »

Like others here I am very happy with my Dividend Machine subscription. Finally making money for a change even in this down market. Not much, mind you, but enough to make me well pleased with my subscription. I am getting into good stocks at low prices with great dividends thanks to Bill Spetrino.
Bill’s current buy list is sure to be a winner as they are great stocks with a great entry point.
I’m happy I found The Dividend Machine.

I have been a subscriber of tdm for about 1 yr and I hsve to say Mr. Bill Spetrino us the real deal and I have done well on all of his pics accept for rig and GEOS. And I don’t blame bill for that. As a matter of fact I have layer down with rig and averaged 15 per share now and I believe I will be ok with rig when oil turns around. Like bill says, it’s not sustainable at 35 a barrell

I have been a subscriber to TDM for about five years. Today I terminated my subscription for two reasons: 1) They do not publish the performance of their portfolios. I requested this information multiple times, and I was told that they did not track this information. Sorry Bill, but I just don’t believe that. Did the dog eat your homework too? If I had a little more free time, I could track this using Morningstar for god’s sake. 2) Today Bill posted a webcast that talked about how great President Trump would be for the economy and the stock market,… Read more »

This site is full of plants. I’m not and have one for you and it’s free. OncBioMune is for real. ProscaVax. Works and no side effects like the 14 billion prostate drug bought by Pfizer last year for Prostate cancer. The vaccine ProscaVax works better and cures 60% of its patients. That was correct 60%. OBMP is stock symbol. Take a look for yourself.

I’m still very pleased with The Dividend Machine. In the last 2 years Bill’s recommendations have increased my portfolio over 25%. I haven’t purchased all of his stocks but I do own 13 of the original 14 and while a couple energy stocks are down (RIG,-6% NOV,-21% ) others are up. And I’m very confident these energy stocks are headed beyond my purchase price. For anyone disillusioned with TDM I would remind that this is an investing site, not a trading one. And of course most of these pay a dividend which is my main interest. If you pay attention… Read more »

I have been with Bill since 2012 and have had very good results. Made the most on AAPL but also on DAL, ALK and IBM. I also get the Bill’s Inner Circle to get some experience with options. Bought an AAPL option for 2017 and doubled my money but sold to soon or would have done even better. Bill is for real and buys what he recommends. He sends two emails per week, one of them audio, to keep readers up to date. I have subscribed to several news letters and let most of them expire. Highly recommend The Dividend… Read more »

If you stick with the conservative stocks in his recommendations you will make money. Buy the way this is what Bill Spetrino recommends. 90% of you portfolio should be in the conservative portfolio. The aggressive and the international portfolios are also worth investing in, but they are a little more risky and often take more time to become profitable. That is why he only advocates 10% of your portfolio in those two. It is also noteworthy that he has never had a loosing position in his conservative portfolio.

Many of the positions show losses. He says ignore the losses until you sell. But, he takes credit for holdings that are up before he sells. A loss is real even if you haven’t sold. And the opportunity cost of an underperforming portfolio in a bull market destroys financial security. He has not beaten the S&P with his portfolio since inception and that means you destroyed wealth listening to him, even though he had a few big wins. The portfolio results speak for themselves.

I’ve tracked ALL of his newsletter picks since inception, adhering strictly to the dates and prices of his buy recommendations and sell recommendations. If you had followed all of his picks, your portfolio would have achieved an annual compounded growth rate in excess of 20% since 2009. Now granted we have been in a bull market since 2009, but nevertheless, Bill’s picks have handily beaten the market averages. I’ve also looked at other newsletters since 2009 and Bill has outperformed them all.

I’ve joined 3-4 different investment newsletters through Newsmax and only Bill has guided me to profit. I lost money hand over fist with Hyman, Hutchinson, & Packer. I’ve been in Bill Spetrino’s Dividend Machine since 2013 and wish I would have found him sooner. I don’t make a lot of money so it’s hard for me to invest much but I buy when I can and so far my three biggest losses are RIG (-71%), SFUN (-50%), and NOV (-29%) but my three biggest gains are NSP (+131%), AAPL (+103%), and MO (+92%). I have many others in the mix… Read more »

Spetrino knows nothing about stocks. He just said “buy AEO because it has no debt”. Of course he ignores the operating leases because he doesn’t understanding accounting. As MarketWatch showed, he was only pretending to be a CPA and refuses to prove he even attended college.

Latest ad says this clown has a 95% win rate – current positions include big losses in RIG, KORS and others. Overall, his record underperforms the market but hides behind the idea a loss is only a loss when you sell. Holding RIG for three years, down 75% while market gains 40%. That’s a real loss of wealth thanks to this blowhard.

That is an understandable reaction to Bill’s investing style. I am a subscriber of his and do not follow all of his suggestions. Often to my own detriment. I have more of a trader mentality, not that of an investor. Bill runs an ‘investment ‘ newsletter and not a trader’s newsletter and that is the fundamental difference that people often have a problem with. A trader would have bailed on aapl in 2015 and not bought back in until late 2016. I get that. Bill advocates a very patient and disciplined approach of holding even when they dip. Had I… Read more »

This guy is ridiculous – he says the market is wrong and only he knows what’s right. His losses are large on some positions – CBI, RIG, AEO and others – but he says the losses aren’t real. The market is always right and I have large and real losses from his advice. RIG needs to gain 200% to get even. An index fund beats this guy and you don’t have to listen to him explain how his loss in CBI was caused by traders telling lies about the stock. Run away from him before you suffer losses like everyone… Read more »

Important to note though that the winners make up oversized parts of the overall portfolio. Energy overall was a small part of portfolio. Oil has been kept down a long time and companies in that industry don’t control their own destiny. Bill has actually admitted on numerous occasions that he was wrong on oil. He hasn’t hidden that from people. RIG has actually performed as well as possible financially in a challenging environment but the market keeps the stock down unfortunately. None of us can control that. One can simply sell it if willing to take the loss and rotate… Read more »

I am new to TDM. I must say I wished I knew about him earlier. Currently I hold a few of Bill’s recommendations and they are not doing that bad only because I just join TDM. People talk about RIG being down it’s plain old common sense the whole oil industry is down what do you expect. There is one thing I would like to see Bill do and that is he gives his recommendations “at, or near my buy price” now is that saying to buy, or wait? Other than that I think TDM is a great newsletter. I… Read more »

I’ve been on TDM for going on 10 years and can say that following’s Bill’s picks has doubled our families portfolios! Several stocks like AAPL, HLF, MO, PM which I would have never invested in have given me gains of 50 – 140%. Straightforward, actionable information without gimmickry. His picks are not only in quality companies but at the RIGHT price. I used to follow many other publications but have since left them behind.

BIO has done very well for me over rhe past 5-6 years. For those bitter with the results, one should follow Bill’s portfolio amounts (very small percentage should have been in RIG and KORS according to the newsletter). Keep the percentages to what is recommended and always buy under the buy price.
By the way, those upset with the results also forgot to mention the 5 picks in the aggressive portfolio that are up over 100%.
BIO has taught me patience in investing and that investing is a marathon not a sprint.

Have Been a TDM subscriber for several years, and recently subscribed to Bill Spetrino’s other services. Although it’s impossible to pick a winning stock every time, (and with retail and energy sectors struggling in general, I have a couple of positions that are down significantly) with the CORRECT allocations this newsletter’s recommendations have performed fantastically for me. His explanations in each month’s newsletter are concise and give you a good feel for what you’ll be investing in and why. He’s trying to teach what to look for and why he’s investing in a particular new stock. The energy plays which… Read more »

I won’t go into detail about individual picks, as they seem to have been covered well here. These guys and gals and myself are definitely not plants, many of us have communicated on the web and through Facebook, as part of Bills group of happy students.

I’m a subscriber to the dividend machine for 2 years now. Yes, RIG is down, but that is only one play. HLF is near all-time highs. The people who complain about stocks going down for a period of time don’t understand value investing. I first bought Micron at around $20. It then went down to around $8-9 for awhile. This is were I layered into the stock to lower my basis. The stock is around $31 to $32 right now. I ended up making 96% profit on MU.

When I retired I lost nearly half of my IRA putting my money with other yahoos who were supposed to be professionals. Then I discovered Newsmax and purchased nearly every financial newsletter they published over the course of the past five years. I have purchased stock with the recommendations from all of them. I kept weeding out the newsletters as I discovered that Bill Spetrino’s, “The Dividend Machine,” was the only truly profitable newsletter. I made that decision three years ago and have since, not regretted that decision one bit. I am also a part of Bill’s “Bio Forum” and… Read more »

What I find interesting is how unobjective and unimaginative the negative reviews of TDM are on this site. It is quite easy to cherry pick negative returns from any newsletter and rip it for being bad. There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. I you are an objective person, you will quickly realize that the negative reviews found here are using statistics to tell their damn lies. Let me give you a fact.

Looks like Bill asked plants to chime in. Please address the fact that he under performs the market. Sure a few picks go up but not enough to offset his losses. You’d be better off in an index fund without his ego and brashness.

Underperforms the market??? Im guessing math wasn’t your best subject in school. If your a real subscriber you’d see the conservative pick chart (90% of portfolio) has massive gains easily outperforming the index. We know your not good at math now but do you also have a difficult time reading?

I have been a member of TDM for about 4 years. I love it. Bill gives sound advice and by following it I have done much better than if I could have with any other newsletter. There have been a couple of things that haven’t worked out but by buying below Bill’s buy price and following his recommendations, it is pretty easy to do very well. He also provides insight when the market takes a little dip. If you can’t make money subscribing to the Dividend Machine, you must be doing the opposite of what Bill says.

I have been with Bill’s Dividend Machine for over 4 years now and have to say I am delighted with my portfolio built on Bill’s guidance. He taught me about the importance of layering in during tough times for individual stocks and I am very happy with my cost basis in stocks that Bill advised to “Load The Boat” PM (+42%), APPL (+87%), HLF (+72%) MU(+122%) QCOM (+5%), GILD (+3%) to name just a few. The other key differential Bill has over most newsletters is that he has his own money in the game. He doesn’t hide from RIG but… Read more »

I have been a subscriber to TDM since 2009, and given the results in my portfolio from Bills recommendations, I am very pleased. Yes, my investment in the oil related stocks, infrastructure and retail stocks are down. I chose to invest more than Bills recommendation in RIG, and I am down significantly. That was my choice. Honestly, as an investor, one should never blindly follow, and we should all take responsibility for the stocks we purchase.

Bill is the real deal. Bill flat at states that only 5% of the portfolio should be in the Agressive portfolio and 5% in the international portfolio with 90% in the conservative portfolio. So if you bet huge on geos or another agreesive portfolio stock that should only be 4% of the 5% then that is on you. The conservative portfolio has not had a losing stock. Yes they may go down in price but then they come back much stronger and make a good percentage. I really wish I would have joined the dividend machine much much earlier. For… Read more »

The thread here among TDM’s supporters is that Bill is “the real deal,” and I agree. I’ve subscribed since 2013, and my results (including the few losers) have been spectacular. No sense in posting numbers because there’s no way I can prove them here. You’re either going to accept them as true or denounce them as lies. Suffice it to say that my holdings have almost doubled since 2013, with most stocks in my retirement accounts.

Dividend Machine is a news letter written by a real investor with his own money placed on his suggestions not some one running the numbers and giving you suggested stocks that have hit there highs. Bill tells you when to buy and when not sure he has had some bad picks but over all his goal is to bring you 12% a year return and he has gone above and beyond that goal many times.

Bill is the real deal. In my plus 3 years of being associated with him, he has performed awesome. There is mention of a couple of stocks like RIG and GEOS. How about the other 60 stocks like APPL, MU, MO, etc. that have been major winners? Bill is the most successful author of a newsletter that I have been associated. He has lead us through market downturns as well upward. The guys is a solid rock and is both a caring and selfless in the time he provides his subscribers.

Bill Spetrino knows his stuff. I have been a loyal subscriber to Dividend Machine and The Inner Circle for over 3 years.

I have been a member of TDM and BIO for 7 years. While I can’t recall all the many investments I have made during that period following Bill Spetrino’s recommendations, what I can say is that my portfolio is significantly up from where I started. Not all investments were successes (RIG for example), but the majority that were far outweighed the ones which did not do well. I believe I am a realist in acknowledging that no one can have a 100% success record, and I would think it odd – even suspicious – if someone did, or claimed thy… Read more »

I have been a TDM subscriber for 4 years. As a beginner, I just followed Bill’s recommendations straight down the line, beginning with conservative stocks to international stocks, putting appropriate weight on each category as he recommended. It is so easy to make money with his advice. I was so happy he helped me to make money so easily that I now subscribe to his other services. I know RIG is down and I sold it at a small loss because I didn’t buy many shares as it should only take up a small percentage of my portfolio. On the… Read more »

Is Bill Spetrino infallible? No only God is . However he is brilliant at picking value stocks. Energy and energy related stocks are down we all know that, but most of his picks are pure genius including Apple and Herbalife. I believe him to be a man of integrity and I am so glad I subscribe to his newsletter – The Dividend Machine. Philip

Bill is the real deal. I’ve subscribed since 2012 and activlly started investing with his advice about 3 years ago .

Has every stock I picked (from Bill’s recommendations) won? No. BUT, 6 out of 8 have–and most with incredible gains. I also belong to his BIO forum at billspetrino.com. Bill is a legit investor who cuts through the noise. And, he actually has skin in the game with his picks… Read more »

I couldn’t agree with wdmeadows any more. I have been with The Dividend Machine letter for over 3 yrs and have made fantastic returns and handily beat the index. I love the returns but the real gem of this newsletter is Bills honesty and willingness to teach. He can’t do the work for you but if you can’t make returns with a coach like this then you shouldn’t be investing in the first place. Bill will actually break down companies and give simple to understand examples of why he has set a buy price at certain levels for each company.… Read more »
