I was intrigued when I saw an ad from Timothy Lutts at Cabot about their “Next Netflix” stock, pitched as the next opportunity for a $600,000 windfall. Who doesn’t want that, right? That windfall figure refers to their recommendation of Netflix in May, 2002 — they say that $5,000 in NFLX then would have turned […]
We’re preparing to move Stock Gumshoe HQ to some new digs, so I’m going to try to keep this brief today — normally my desk only gets organized once a year, so having to commit to filing and moving everything more often than that is really throwing my schedule off kilter. The pitch we’re looking […]
Yesterday I started to look into the stocks teased by Cabot Emerging Markets Investor, and today we’re going to continue on that journey. If you’re just catching up, you can see that previous note here — the short version is that the Cabot folks see much more upside in emerging markets stocks in the near […]
Timothy Lutts is hinting at a new small cap stock in order to tantalize potential subscribers to Cabot Small-Cap Confidential 2.0 (which will run you $950/year), and the line that caught my eye was “A Rare Second Chance to Turn $5,000 into $40,000.” That’s a reference to Tesla, which had such an 800% jump (over […]
Despite the fact that the “developing” world continues to grow much more quickly than the huge established economies of Europe, Japan and North America, investors are still largely reluctant to invest in emerging markets these days. That’s understandable, for sure — when the media is telling you to be worried, and when the US dollar […]
The “stock of the month” email teasers from Cabot follow a bit of a formula, but they also sometimes point us to interesting stocks… so we’re going to take a quick look at this latest ad, which I started seeing about a week ago, and see what Timothy Lutts and the Cabot folks are pitching […]
China stocks are back, but China newsletters not so much. That’s a little bit unusual, actually — typically, newsletter publishers are quick to produce new “niche” letters or repurpose faltering letters to take advantage of big swings in the market, and just as quick to shut those newsletters down if that “niche” loses the interest […]
Last week I started looking into Cabot Market Letter’s pitch about their latest portfolio moves, including a buy of Harman (HAR) that has already jumped almost five percent since we looked at it back on Thursday (not that we or Cabot probably had anything to do with that jump) … … and I told you […]
“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, […]
Monthly stock advisory based on dividend income and their “IRIS” system of picking dividend growth stocks for retirement investing.
Paul Goodwin edits the Cabot China and Emerging Markets report, which is really the only surviving China-focused newsletter I can think of from a big publisher (most publishers had such a letter during the China bull run in the mid-late 2000s, but many of them disappeared in recent years as China got to be as […]
I bought a few more shares of Altius Minerals today, after looking into them and Sandstorm Gold following some recent reader questions, and I’ll get to that in a moment … but first, I thought I’d toss out a quick Friday File teaser solution for you if you’re curious about what’s being teased in China […]
I’ve got a couple quick personal portfolio updates to share with you today, including an add-on warrant buy, but first I thought you might enjoy a quick look at a teaser ad for one of Thomas Garrity’s picks from Cabot Small-Cap Confidential — they’re promoting this pretty actively right now as a “$20 biotech stock […]
Like several other newsletter families, Cabot runs a relatively low-cost service that culls picks from all of their newsletters and picks a monthly favorite — the service is called the Cabot Stock of the Month Report, and they typically tease it with their “double your money guarantee.” (That guarantee is not terribly different from the […]
Weekly stock picks culled from other Cabot newsletters, mostly growth-focused.
Presents their picks for 10 strongest stocks in the market each week.
The folks at Cabot are unabashed fans of growth and momentum, which can certainly work as an investment strategy even if it isn’t the strategy I tend to follow personally … the market loves businesses that are growing, and that love turns into higher prices if the growth builds on itself, even if the stocks […]
The folks at Cabot are no stranger to promises of doubles and triples — and they especially like to trot out specific pitches like this one, that a health care stock is going from $15 to $45 … and that, of course, makes us quite curious about just what stock they’re talking about. You too? […]
Cabot’s Stock of the Month service is not unlike the entry-level “sampler” newsletters offered by a lot of publishers — in this service they pick their favorite stock from among all of the stocks recommended by their stable of newsletters for that particular month … and in Cabot’s case, they tend to promise that the […]
We have a charming little tradition here at Stock Gumshoe of picking out the stinkiest stock to have been teased over the past year, and calling it our “Turkey of the Year” come Thanksgiving time. It’s not particularly fair — certainly not to turkeys everywhere, and probably not to the newsletter folks who use breathless, […]
