For those who were interested in the spiel about Chris Mayer’s special “Skype Call” that I wrote about earlier in the week, I thought I’d loop around on that — yes, he was talking up the potential of mutual conversions (he usually calls them “thrift conversions”), and I actually listened to most of the presentation […]
Mark Skousen is an old hand in newsletterdom now, and we’ve looked at pitches for his newsletters that are published by Eagle Financial many times over the years, including the “entry level” Forecasts & Strategies letter as well as his more expensive options-focused services. And he’s launching a new service to take advantage of the […]
New service introduced by Mark Skousen with claimed insight into Oval Office policies and decisions, goal is “turn politics into profits” with recommendations on stocks to flourish under President Trump.
This is a combo you don’t hear about very often, “founded in the 17th century” and “cancer killing blockbuster” … usually, the little biotechs that newsletters drop hints about are tiny, young, risky, sometimes fly-by-night outfits that are betting it all on a clinical breakthrough. Not this time, apparently. So that’s why my eye was […]
Retirees and those who are near retirement are desperate for income — bond yields are ridiculously low, not just for municipal bonds and Treasuries but for riskier corporate bonds, CD rates are too low to take seriously, even dividends are getting lower as more and more investors overpay for income… so the marketplace is ripe […]
Options newsletter, using a strategy called “Fast Money Windows”.
Mark Skousen has caught our attention with his big promises and teases several times over the years, and this latest pitch of his looks like a doozy — he’s saying that he has identified the “most important event in 2015,” and that this accomplishment has been completed in “secret” … so what’s the story? Well, […]
Growth and income focused advisory, with some focus on dividend-payers.
Newsletter that seeks to identify large trends (internet “always on” connectivity, medical technology, etc.) and pick “horizontal” winners that will profit from those trends.
I do love it when newsletters are teasing themes that we’re familiar with (they tend to run in fads, just like everything else), and especially when they give specific dates by which you need to act in order to reap these fabulou rewards. Not that the dates always really mean anything — sometimes they’re predictions […]
“12,000 Feet Below the Surface of the Ocean the Last Untouched Reservoir of Crude Oil Lies Waiting — and Only One Company Can Bring It to An Increasingly Desperate World!… “… now oil could be heading for $150 a barrel… politicians are talking about attacking Iran … and everyone is scrambling to tap the tens […]
Mark Skousen has spent the past few days touting a stock that’s supposed to skyrocket TODAY — and your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe was busy lolling about over the weekend, so we’re just getting to it now. And don’t worry, the stock is actually down a bit over the last week or so, so if there’s […]
Monthly newsletter with a recommended portfolio focusing on global stocks, including US multinationals.
There are lots of different “story” pitches you can make about a stock, but one of the most compelling ones is the “next big thing” that will destroy a product that we already know and love, and that is extraordinarily profitable. And, not coincidentally, a product made by the company that has the most popular […]
Here’s the top of the tease that I just got in my email from Nicholas Vardy, trying to get me to subscribe to his Global Bull Market Alert ($995/year, in case you’re wondering): “On November 15th, a Top Chinese Internet Company’s Announcement Could Send Its Stock Soaring “While China’s economy levels off, its Internet sector […]
