Gold, Copper and Oil

Happy Tax Day! (OK, not really — I’m told you get until the 18th because of holidays this year… but still, April 15 holds a special place in our hearts.) I’m coming to you a bit early with your Friday File this morning, since I’ll be traveling later in the day — our publishing schedule […]

What’s Nick Hodge’s “Proven Golden ‘Loophole'” that “Magnifies Gold & Silver Gains?”

Nick Hodge is pitching his Early Advantage newsletter (about $800) with a story about a “golden loophole” that he says provides your best path to profits in the precious metals business — and lots of readers have asked me about that “loophole” this morning, so we’re going to put the Thinkolator to work identifying the […]

Friday File: The Dark and Ugly Start of 2016

So has this recent weakness been a dip, or is it the beginning of real downward bear market or years of stagnation? Trick question. I Dunno, and neither does anyone else. But I still need to invest to grow my savings over the next 10-20 years or maybe more, so I’m still willing to buy […]

What’s Palm Beach’s “Canadian Mint” investment that can “Multiply Your Money 10X?”

This teaser wasn’t the core offering of Palm Beach Letter‘s latest pitch for their premium package of services — that was mostly Tom Dyson’s increasingly strident “Income for Life” push — they usually call that the “770 Account,” and they’ve been pushing it for several years now as the only safe way to protect your […]

Should you “Own This Sleeper Stock Before April 30, 2015?”

I’ll be on the road today, dear friends and Irregulars, so I’ll send this Friday File out in the morning since it’s (uncharacteristically) ready before the market open. Enjoy! Well, there’s no question about what Irregulars want covered in the Friday File this week… the latest pitch from Louis James at Casey Research about a […]

Casey’s “7 Top Gold Stocks with Vertical Potential”

This one comes in to us from Louis James at Casey International Speculator, and it’s all about gold exploration and mining stocks — mostly small ones, it appears (it is called Speculator, after all), so perhaps we can consider this as a potential shopping list for contrarian and mostly hated small gold stocks. Which is […]

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 […]
