What’s “JFK’s Secret Currency” as teased by Byron King?

We see absurd hyperbole every day here at Stock Gumshoe, with promises of stocks that double or massive “free income” from various “top secret” trading strategies or… well, you know the drill, you get most of those same emails. So after swimming in this sea of hype for almost a decade, I sometimes forget just […]

2013 Turkey of the Year: Dry Holes in the Ocean

Fanfare, please! It’s time, once again, for the Turkey of the Year announcement! Every year, as millions of American families place a golden-brown turkey ceremoniously on their Thanksgiving table, we here at Stock Gumshoe try to pick out the most overcooked, overyhyped, and overstuffed turkey from among the hundreds of stocks we’ve written about in […]

Halfway Through the Year … How are the Teasers Doing?

Now that we’re putting June to bed, I thought I’d take just a minute to check on the stocks we’ve revealed over the first half of 2013 and see what’s happening. As you probably know, we track the prices of each of the stocks we uncover from the hyped teaser promotions — almost all of […]

“Energy’s Last Great Frontier … The Untold Story”

I’m being flummoxed by extremely slow WiFi on my flight today, so can’t get the research completed for the new article I had planned. In case you’re looking for something to read on this lovely Tuesday afternoon, this is a teaser-unveiling excerpt from a Friday File we published in late March. It has NOT been […]

“How to Grab Explosive Mining and Manufacturing Gains All in One Shot”

OK, you’re probably as sick of the “miracle materials” as I am, yes? But your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe is nothing if not stubborn, and we got through the first two of Byron King’s Energy and Scarcity Investor teaser picks so now, dangit, we’re going to clear the slate and get that third one, too. […]

Supercomputers in the Palm of your Hand (Byron King)

Yesterday we started looking at Byron King’s recent teaser for a graphite/graphene company, part of his new ad campaign for Energy and Scarcity Investor that hypes three “miracle materials” that have the potential to change the world … and today, as promised, we’re staying on this track and getting to his second pick, some sort […]

“What is this building hiding?” Byron King’s teased “Miracle Material” stock

“What is this Tiny Tech Company in Maryland Hiding? “And why could it mean… “The End of Silicon Valley as We Know It “Much of what you are about to see remains unknown to those outside of scientific and industrial circles… “Many researchers are hailing it as a ‘miracle material’ – and quite possibly the […]

“Enormous ‘Oil Kitchen’ Discovered in Energy’s Last Great Frontier” (Byron King)

The great Gumshoe faithful have been focused on one thing over the last couple days: what the heck is Byron King talking about with his “oil kitchen?” That term might sound familiar to you — King first recommended a stock using that “oil kitchen” phrase, referring to a large oil source area offshore Namibia, back […]

Could the “Fourth Element” Make You a Fortune?

Byron King is pitching another teensy weensy rare metals stock for his Energy & Scarcity Investor newsletter from Agora, only this time it’s not the rare earth metals but a really light metal that he calls the “Fourth Element.” Which brings to mind several of the periodic table-focused teasers of years past, though particularly the […]

“New Silicon” — Byron King’s “85 cent Stock that Could Make You Rich”

Friday File articles, like “Idea of the Month” writeups, are generally password-protected for our paying members — this commentary was made available to all readers on October 7, 2011 but the content not been edited or revised since the original publication date. The author continues to not have any personal interest in the stocks mentioned […]

“Stalin’s Atomic Secret” (Byron King Rare Earths)

Man oh man, I’ve been using completely the wrong strategy. Clearly, since last Summer when the rare earth element mining (or let’s be honest, “exploring for”) stocks started taking off like gangbusters whenever the Chinese flexed their muscles, the newsletter copywriters started wetting their pants in excitement. And what I should have done was look […]
