The folks at StreetAuthority are running a teaser along the same lines of several they’ve run in the past, one that touts the “rarest securities on earth” — these are Enhanced Income Securities, they are sold by different names but essentially are just stapled securities, a high-yield bond tacked on to a share of stock, […]
Today we’re taking a look at what Carla Pasternak of High-Yield Investing is calling her “Income Security of the Month” for March. Pasternak uses these “security of the month” teasers to build up interest in her newsletter, of course, with plenty of opportunities to click, subscribe, and learn the name of the stock … … […]
This teaser comes in from Paul Tracy at the StreetAuthority family of newsletters, it’s for their High-Yield Investing newsletter that’s edited by Carla Pasternak … and, as so many newsletters do, they’ve taken a fairly commonplace investing strategy and given it a fake and mysterious name. Is that enough to get you to sign up […]
Today we’re looking at a high yield stock that’s being pitched by Carla Pasternak for her new High-Yield International newsletter that looks for big dividends overseas. High Yield International has been around for a while, as far as I can tell — it used to be edited by Nick Lanyi, so perhaps he’s moved on […]
I intended to work some more on Peter Schiff’s picks today, but the level of interest in that piece yesterday was, well, underwhelming — so I’ll work on something else for a bit and come back to our friend Mr. Schiff a bit later. Today I wanted to take a look at an ad that’s […]
We close out the week with a look at the “Income Security of the Month” — Carla Pasternak puts one of these out each month as a teaser to get folks to subscribe to her High-Yield Investing newsletter, and we’ve looked at several of them before — it’s been a hodgepodge, the Korea Fund and […]
Who can resist a headline like that? High yields, low risk … that’s pretty much the holy grail for investors these days (well, except for those who haven’t yet given up on finding the next Google, or the next Seabridge Gold). So what is this all about? Today I’m working with just a wee snippet […]
Everybody loves a good dividend, no? In that case, the promise of this teaser ad from the folks at High Yield Investing might get the blood boiling a little bit …
“High-Yield Superstar … Unique Stock/Bond Hybrid Offers a CD-Dependable 14.5% Yield”
The folks at High Yield Investing have this to offer: “You can thank venture capitalists for your computer, cell phone, solar panel and countless other inventions that have made our lives better… and ground-floor investors filthy rich. Back in the day, if you wanted a piece of the action, all you needed to do was write your own million-dollar check. Not possible for 99.99% of investors. But today, you can buy your way into the exclusive world of venture capitalists for about $7.”
A big part of the advertising that comes out for Carla Pasternak’s High Income Investing is by way of their writeups on the “income security of the month” — and, as she has done this month, she often recycles these ideas … it looks like today’s “Income Security of the Month” was also the income security of the Month for October.
Times are tough, everyone’s cutting back — so no need to hire another copywriter if you’ve got a perfectly good sales letter sitting around!
Some of the comments below first appeared in this space back then, which now seems a lifetime ago, but I’ve added some more info and done some updating.
“These special hybrid securities not only provide strong returns during market turmoil thanks to the ‘AAA’-rated portfolio of their parent company — they also provide unlimited upside potential since the shares are convertible at any time into stock of the underlying company.”
A big part of the advertising that comes out for Carla Pasternak’s High-Yield Investing is by way of their writeups on the “income security of the month” — I’ve looked at a few of these in the past, but it’s been a while, so now seems like as good a time as any to dig […]
Let me just warn you up front — this is a rerun. But I calls ’em like I sees ’em, and Carla Pasternak runs this same exact ad so often that I get questions about it once every few months. This is no exception — she’s been calling this particular Closed End Fund (CEF) her […]
I hope that everyone who reads the teaser email from StreetAuthority.com for Carla Pasternak’s High-Yield Investing takes their claims of a 35% forward dividend yield with a little bit of a grain of salt. Obviously, there’s no way to get a 35% annual dividend that’s sustainable and/or safe, so there must be something unusual going […]
