“America’s $2.89 Trillion Super Weapon Revealed!”

“Big Banking’s $20.8 Trillion Secret” Pick from David Gardner

About a month ago I wrote a Friday File for the Irregulars that was based on a pitch the Motley Fool was making for an Internet banking company — it was all about how bricks and mortar are dead, and about how a prescient “mysterious investor” at the Motley Fool had a history of picking […]

“One Stock You Must Buy Before the iPhone-Android War Escalates Any Further…”

Television 2.0 — “The $2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room Begins Now”

The folks at the Motley Fool have pitched a lot of “big change” stock ideas over the years, from the “end of ‘Made in China’” (3D printing) to the “Death of Microsoft” (cloud computing), and these email campaigns always get a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers … both because they’re well pitched and because […]

“Capitalize on this ‘Backdoor’ iPhone 5 Opportunity Before it’s Too Late”

Today I’m taking a “mea culpa” moment to remind you about a a stock I’ve been a wee bit skeptical of as “too expensive” for quite a while … I’ve been quite wrong about the stock so far and it has risen persistently and consistently over the last 2+ years. Not that it’s rare for […]

“What you don’t know about Steve Jobs’ final vendetta …” (Motley Fool)

The folks at the Motley Fool have run lots of ads for stock picks that “piggyback” on the iPhone’s gargantuan success — as have lots of other newsletter publishers, of course — and it looks like that trend will continue. The ad I’ve seen today takes a somewhat different tack on this same basic idea […]
