  • 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 […]

  • “This No-Name Company Is Set to Expose the #1 ‘Deadly Flaw’ in Every Single Smartphone and Tablet on the Planet”

    This article was originally published on May 19, and the ad we’re covering has been heavily promoted over the past month, leading up to a big final push before yesterday’s supposed catalyst date of June 13, when Blanco (or his ad copywriter) was certain that Apple would announce some big news about “this tiny company”. […]

  • 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 […]

  • Answered: “How to Profit from Cell Towers Without the Hassle… ” (Dr. David Eifrig)

    The following was originally published on November 10 and has not been updated or revised. The teaser ad covered is being circulated again today with a slightly different headline pitch about cellphone royalties, but the balance of the ad (and the teased company) are largely unchanged. —from 11/10/14— Dr. David Eifrig is touting something that […]

  • “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 […]

  • A Wee Nibble More

    Well, I don’t think there’s anything I can tell you about Apple (AAPL) that you can’t read anywhere else … except for the fact that I just increased my AAPL position by about 15%. Apple and Berkshire Hathaway have been jousting back and forth for the coveted title of “largest holding in Travis’ equity portfolio” […]

  • Back to 1.2X Book, Good for Greenlight, and Some other Updates on New Stocks and Favorites

    Markel released their earnings last night, and they were, well, typical very good Markel earnings — they actually had an above average year in some ways, with good underwriting and not much catastrophe loss and good increases in sales (written premiums). And now, after crashing to about 1.05X book value after announcing the Alterra acquisition, […]

  • “How Steve Jobs’ Mentor Turned a $5-Million Pipe Dream into a $340-Billion Reality”

    This one may not be entirely loaded with secret stocks, since I suspect quite a few ardent Gumshoe readers have already figured out who they’re talking about as “Steve Jobs’ Mentor” … and therefore figured out which company they’re teasing … but, well, I’m still getting a lot of questions every day on this one, […]

  • “Reminds me of Apple…same cult-like following but at 1/40th the price—and growing twice as fast.”

    That quote above is from George Leong, who’s trying to get you to sign up for his Small-Cap Growth Stocks newsletter. He says that new subscribers can “be the FIRST to read about a great undervalued, undiscovered American company that could hand you a $120,000 gain by year’s end.” Sound good? Well, he makes it […]

  • “The Apple Effect: One Stock to Profit from the Next iDevice” (Ian Wyatt)

    Now that Apple is the largest public company in the world, and the most popular stock, the eagerness with which newsletter guys tout “secret” Apple suppliers is ramping up still more … impressive in itself, since the basic “buy Apple suppliers” pitch has been around and making money for subscription-sellers ever since Synaptics was pitched […]
