Will FT-900 Bring about the “next 9/11″ in April, 2014? What is Jeff Opdyke talking about?

Jeff Opdyke has a pretty inflammatory ad going around these days for The Sovereign Investor, it’s all about how the consistent export of gold from the US — as reported in form FT-900 — will lead to America experiencing it’s “next 9/11″ moment in April of this year. The basic argument is that the US […]

What is “The ‘British Columbia Gold Bank’ Now Open to American Investors?”

“One unique type of gold investment (that most Americans have never heard of) based in British Columbia has outperformed every asset class in existence – rising twice as fast as gold. “The average investor in this gold secret made over 80% a year for 20 straight years – even after gold crashed last year. “But […]

“Fat Dividends from Cancer,” a personal buy, … and some updates

I’ve got a handful of updates for you, including one on a stock that I bought yesterday and a few other notes about recent quarterly reports from stocks I follow, but first … a teaser to solve … When I wrote about Marc Lichtenfeld’s pitch for “Spread Trusts” yesterday, I promised to also try to […]

“The single most controversial recommendation we’ve ever made…” (Frank Curzio)

Phase 1 Investor is the big kahuna newsletter at Stansberry & Associates, the $5,000 newsletter that they typically discount to $3,000 when sending out promo emails … … and they market this letter so heavily that Gumshoe readers flood our inbox whenever a new Phase 1 teaser ad runs. So … another of their teasers […]

What’s Chuck de Castro’s “Mammoth mine” that “will soon begin producing gold at $18 an ounce?”

The folks at Penny Mining Speculator manage to get an awful lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, and they do it with email ads like this one — promising that they’ve found a company with a huge, undeveloped deposit that’s worth hundreds of times more than the stock market is giving them credit for. Sometimes […]

“Why ‘Canadian Silver’ Could Pay 100% MORE than Ordinary Silver Over the Next Few Years…” (PS, there’s “Canadian Gold”, too)

Huh? Are the Canadian Maple Leaf silver coins going to suddenly become twice as valuable as the American Eagle silver coins? No, don’t worry, it’s not that simple and silver is still fungible, an ounce is an ounce is an ounce (well, a troy ounce, anyway). So what’s the idea of “Canadian silver” being somehow […]

“Three Gold Plays for the Secret Gold Standard” and a new Sandstorm deal

It’s like sweet, sweet music in the ear of the gold enthusiast: “The Secret Return to the Gold Standard “A silent conspiracy will make gold a new currency on January 1st 2013. Central banks and governments are buying gold by the metric ton… “If you hold any dollars, here’s what you must do now to […]

“A $5 ‘Cleanfrack’ Stock to Buy Immediately” sez Keith Kohl

This article was originally published on May 25 as a Friday File for the Irregulars. It has NOT been updated or revised, and the original reader comments on the article are also included below. Today we’ve got a couple things to share with you — first, a look at stock that Keith Kohl’s Energy Investor […]

How do you “stop America’s laziest minority from ruining OUR country?”

Before I get on to that “laziest minority” bit, I did want to throw out a few comments and some thoughts about a few stocks I follow closely: If you don’t think the world is going to hell in a handbasket, and you do think that commodities in general will hold up reasonably well (which […]

Phase 1′s “Urgent Gold Information” takeover teaser for “Tiny Gold”

This teaser is going to get a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, partly because Stansberry Phase 1 Investor teasers always get a lot of attention (they usually tease a small stock and they charge $5,000 for the newsletter, which gives them an aura of awesomeness — deserved or not), and partly because the pitch […]

“Why a tiny Colorado gold stock is about to pay dividends in real gold bullion… and why I just put $220,000 into it” (Doody)

We’ve written about John Doody a few times over the years, largely because the Stansberry folks have been promoting his newsletter and therefore spreading the gospel of this former Econ professor turned gold newsletter guru and mining stock millionaire. The letter is called Gold Stock Analyst, though a couple years ago they started to offer […]

Frank Curzio’s “Gold Fracking” — Sniffing out his “Aboveground Miners”

I’ve been blathering about my own investments in these Friday Files for a couple weeks now, but for today we’re going back to sniffing out teaser picks … in this case, a teaser pick for “Gold Fracking” that Frank Curzio has been sending out pretty aggressively for a couple days in pitches for his Small Stock […]

“The 4 Most Important ‘Secret Gold Societies’ in America”

Matt Badiali edits the S&A Resource Report, which is an “entry level” (ie, less than $100 a year) newsletter that’s currently “on sale” for $39, and his latest pitch for new members has caught the attention of many of the folks in Gumshoe Nation. He’s pitching something he calls “Secret Gold Societies” … and if […]

“This stock made us 1,400% before – and is now on sale again” (sez Casey International Speculator)

It’s been close to two months since I looked at a teaser for the International Speculator from Doug Casey’s folks, and today they’re circulating another interesting little slew of hints about a promising gold stock … one that apparently made them 1,400% returns 15 years ago and has now again become a bargain. So what […]

Doug Casey’s “Fortunes in the New World”

There’s been a big push on in recent days for subscriptions to some of Doug Casey’s newsletters, with the ad that I’ve been most recently asked about being for a “combo deal” that gets you subscriptions to Casey International Speculator and their flagship Casey Report (for a “discount” price, naturally, though it renews at a […]

“If you buy one gold stock this year… make it this one”

There are going to be a few folks who are frustrated with the navigator of the good ship Gumshoe today, because we’re again looking at an Australian newsletter teaser — and I’m guessing the stock will be tough to trade for US investors, if our past reveals of Diggers and Drillers picks are any indication.
