“These guys have made nearly $14 for every $1 they’ve ever invested”

“You never see investment returns like this. “32,000% on one deal. 900% on another. “All told, these guys have made nearly $14 for every $1 they’ve ever invested. “So who are they? “It’s not Warren Buffett and his team at Berkshire Hathaway… or the exorbitantly paid investment team at any of the big New York […]

Catching Up… Ferris’ “One Company to Buy” Plus Lots of Updates

We’ve been on strange schedules here in Gumshoeland for the last two weeks, and during that time we’ve seen a large number of quarterly reports come through that deserve some attention or comment… as well as a few other notable news items that I feel like I should pay attention to. And, of course, we’ve […]

Dan Ferris’ Three Picks: “The Best Resource Opportunity of My Life”

OK, we’re coming into our very sloooow period of the year, and will be closing down for the holidays after another article or two… but this is a teaser pitch that needs answering. We haven’t had this many questions about a teaser campaign over a weekend in quite a while. Dan Ferris edits Extreme Value […]

“One of the Greatest Businesses We’ve Ever Found”, plus a look at Facebook for the Friday File

We’re closing up shop early today for Veteran’s Day, and in the spirit of the holiday we’re running a membership special today. Stock Gumshoe will donate 50% of all membership revenue today and tomorrow to Homes for our Troops, an excellent charitable organization that builds specially adapted homes for severely disabled veterans — so for […]

“A Gold Royalty with a 10% Yield On Deck” (Dan Ferris)

I hate to continue to write about this small company with great frequency, since it smacks of “talking my book” (it’s a major personal holding), but we have received a lot of questions from readers today about Dan Ferris’ latest pitch, so we’re re-running our previous free article about this one. Last time around, it […]

“Second Chance to Cash in” from Dan Ferris

Dan Ferris edits the Extreme Value newsletter for Stansberry, and he has teased a few interesting ideas for that letter in the past (including, starting several years ago, Altius Minerals (ALS.TO, ATUSF), which has become one of my largest personal holdings) … so I tend to pay attention when he starts to pitch a new […]

Dan Ferris, “Best Royalty Investment in the World”

These are my notes and instant reactions from a presentation at the Value Investing Congress, the notes below might contain errors, paraphrases, incorrect quotes, or misinterpretations. Dan Ferris, who we have covered many times, is presenting about Altius Minerals (ALS.TO, ATUSF), which he has covered for years and we’ve written about many times (it’s also […]

What’s Dan Ferris’ “Next World Dominator?”

Over the last few days I’ve been getting a lot of questions from Gumshoe readers about the latest “World Dominator” pick from Dan Ferris over at Stansberry’s Extreme Value newsletter — they’ve apparently been hinting at it and teasing it to the subscribers of their other letters, and piquing the interest of my readers who […]

Predicting Friday’s Pick by a Newsletter of “one of the truly great businesses”

It’s probably no surprise that the Stansberry & Associates newsletters probably get more attention from Stock Gumshoe than most of the others — they’re right up there with the Motley Fool when it comes to the size of their mailing lists and the response from our readers to their promos, so everything they do and […]

Teased “Safe, Cheap Opportunity” from Extreme Value

I don’t often cover the same editor or pundit twice in a row, but it’s not exactly a hard rule … which is a relief, because the most interesting thing I came across this morning was another teaser from Dan Ferris. Now, it’s not the same hard sell as his 12% Letter pitch that we […]
