  • Friday File Earningspalooza — Data Centers, Auto Electronics, Google and More

    NXP Semiconductor (NXPI) and Visteon (VC) both reported results this week, both pretty much in line with what I would have expected and pretty close to analyst estimates (Visteon earnings were well above estimates, revenue well below because analysts have a hard time getting very specific on Visteon quarters — but their big picture remains […]

  • What’s “Neural Imprinting,” and will it really “wipe out pain and generate $2.86 trillion in new wealth?”

    This article originally appeared as part of the Friday File for the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars (our paid members) on November 20, 2015. The article has not been updated or revised, other than a couple quick updates to numbers and valuations, but we’ve had questions about the ad of late, so we’re moving it back to […]

  • “One tiny ASX-listed tech company holds the key to wirelessly connecting Earth’s entire population”

    We don’t cover a lot of Australian teaser pitches here at Stock Gumshoe, but every now and then one percolates to the surface as its being heavily promoted by one of the Aussie publishers. This time around, it’s the Australian Small-Cap Investigator newsletter being promoted by Port Philip Publishing (which was started as the Australian […]

  • Agora’s 11-second “not safe for work” video… “How You’ll Have Dinner with Shakespeare… Speak Any Language… Know Everything… And Live Forever!”

    ed note: This article was first published on March 31, 2016 — the ad has been changed a little bit and now we’re seeing a version that leads with “Virtual Reality Pornography” and catches your attention that way, though the company being teased and hinted at is still the same. What follows was published on […]

  • VentureCap Strategist’s “Safest and Smartest Way” to play the Virtual Reality Revolution

    We’ve certainly seen our share of “next breakthrough” promises from Louis Basenese — he has worked for a variety of publishers (mostly under the Agora umbrella, I think) and is now promoting a service that he calls VentureCap Strategist, published by Wall Street Daily, and now he’s dangling his take on virtual reality in front […]

  • “‘Sky-Fi’ — Silicon Valley’s $2.2 Trillion Breakthrough Bigger Than The Internet As We Know It”

    This ad has been running again and generating a lot of questions from Gumshoe readers, so we’re re-posting the answer here. The article below has not been updated or revised since it was published on July 20, 2015, other than an update to the Irregulars “Quick Take” box and an updated disclosure at the bottom […]

  • “This Tiny Tech Company Will Have More Users Than Apple, Google, and Facebook… … Combined”

    Yeah, probably not. But that’s the promise — and there is some mathematical possibility that it could happen, if all the ducks line up in a row and this company becomes dominant. You never know, I suppose, but let’s go into this with somewhat more realistic possibilities… like, “this company could double.” That I could […]

  • “This New Apple Innovation Will Be Bigger Than The iPod, iPhone, And iPad” (StreetAuthority)

    This article was originally published in late January — Andy Obermueller is teasing Apple suppliers again, hinting that the Apple “Growth Window” will close up on September 30 (presumably when we start freaking out about their next wave of iPhones and iPads, usually introduced around then), and the descriptions of the teased stocks that he […]

  • Cabot Dividend’s “TODAY ONLY:Get My No. 1 Income Stock Free”

    “Free” does not necessarily mean what you think it does. Neither does “Today Only” … not if you’re wandering in woods that are infested with marketing copywriters. In this case, “Free” means “Free with-subscription-to-my-paid-newsletter-for-$100″… and I don’t know what “Today” means, but I first saw the ad from Chloe Lutts Jensen at Cabot yesterday and, […]

  • “One of the Greatest Businesses We’ve Ever Found”, plus a look at Facebook for the Friday File

    We’re closing up shop early today for Veteran’s Day, and in the spirit of the holiday we’re running a membership special today. Stock Gumshoe will donate 50% of all membership revenue today and tomorrow to Homes for our Troops, an excellent charitable organization that builds specially adapted homes for severely disabled veterans — so for […]

  • “One of the best biotech companies that I’ve ever looked at…” Plus some updates for the Friday File

    I’ve got a big ol’ pile of updates and thoughts about a dozen or so companies to get to, but we’re going to start with a teaser solution today. Paul Mampilly of Agora Financial’s FDA Trader apparently sent around a teaser note to his own subscribers (I say “apparently” because I’ve only seen the cut-and-paste […]

  • Three Stocks Revealed for Motley Fool’s “The Year the Internet Disappeared”

    “An opportunity this good only comes along once twice in a lifetime. “These 3 quick-action interviews with our Foolish investing experts (below) show how to prepare yourself for the $19 trillion revolution that’s swallowing up the Internet. And how to zero in on the 3 next-generation technology stocks that are best positioned to profit. “I’m […]

  • “An unstoppable $160 BILLION force that could make early investors a small fortune…” (Motley Fool)

    The folks at the Motley Fool have been promoting Dave Gardner’s Rule Breakers newsletter for years by using the same basic theme for their ads: Cloud computing scared Bill Gates into retirement, and the “Kings of Cloud Computing” in the next era will make you rich. If you’re not familiar with Gardner, he’s basically a […]

  • What is the “Chinese Twitter” .. and will the share price spike on November 15?

    Here’s the top of the tease that I just got in my email from Nicholas Vardy, trying to get me to subscribe to his Global Bull Market Alert ($995/year, in case you’re wondering): “On November 15th, a Top Chinese Internet Company’s Announcement Could Send Its Stock Soaring “While China’s economy levels off, its Internet sector […]
