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

I’m on the road with my family this holiday weekend, so I’ll get this Friday File mishmosh of thoughts out to you a bit early. There are two things I want to do… chatter a bit about online advertising and Facebook, partly because I’ve been looking into the sector and partly because folks have been […]

“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

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 […]
