I’m running out of time today, so you get a quickie: Louis Navellier’s latest “stealth buy” promo, solved for your pleasure… but without any real analysis from me. The ad is for Navellier’s Emerging Growth ($995/yr), and it pushes the possibilities of small caps and the particular appeal of one small “secret” $14 stock that […]
Louis Navellier hasn’t popped his head up here in Gumshoedom in a while, so when a reader asked me to pour his latest slurry of tantalizing tidbits into the Thinkolator, well, I hopped right to it. For those who don’t know him, Navellier has been around for a few decades as one of the original […]

Bryan Perry runs the Cash Machine newsletter, looking for high-yielding investments — and recently a lot of those investments have been MLPs or similar equity investments in the oil and gas business. We sleuthed out his “top pick for 2013” back in December and that turned out to be a pretty nice pick so far, […]
I promised I’d keep sniffing around this latest Hilary Kramer teaser for you, so we’ll jump right in. But first, I should note that yes, the headline is stolen from her ad — the lovely Ms. Gumshoe works with lawyers, and I lived in Washington DC for 17 years, which means that some of my […]
The Gumshoe faithful have been asking about Hilary Kramer and her latest teaser pitch, so we’re going to ID at least her “#1” idea here — and possibly we’ll get into the rest of ’em if there’s interest. The basic idea is much like past ads from the Motley Fool and others — that cloud […]
Hospital acquired infections are a huge health care problem — and where there’s a huge problem, there are people trying to make money by solving it. That’s the beauty of the entrepreneurial spirit … and you’ve probably seen various teasers over the years about companies that are trying to “kill the superbugs” and help both […]
Yesterday we took a quick look at one of the stocks teased by Hilary Kramer for her GameChangers newsletter … and since I got started, I can’t seem to help myself, I’m going to go ahead and sniff out another stock teased in the same ad. Why? Well, partly because the lovely Stock Gumshoe readers […]
I haven’t written about one of Hilary Kramer’s “Gamechanger” stocks in a while, so while lots of folks are feeling blue, doldrummy, or just plain pessimistic during the ides of July I thought I’d throw in a little of her optimism for you. She’s teasing a few stocks that she thinks her subscribers should load […]
We haven’t looked at a pick from Rober Hsu’s China Strategy in quite a while — and it’s not just that we’re ignoring him, as far as we can tell InvestorPlace has not been promoting his newsletters very actively over the last six months or so. Which probably isn’t a huge surprise — China stocks […]
This is not the first time a teaser stock idea has been pitched to us as “perfect” or “almost perfect,” of course, but using such definitive terms always catches my attention. (Yet another weakness of your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe, I can’t resist the pursuit of perfection.) And as he’s done several times before, this time […]
I’ll admit right up front that there’s something appealing about this company’s service, at least for your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe … who is a bit more roly-poly than he might like. It’s Hilary Kramer pitching to us again, teasing us that she’s recommending a company that can “freeze the fat away” and that should be […]
It’s been a while since Bryan Perry’s ideas graced the glorious pages of Stock Gumshoe — his Cash Machine newsletter has generally teased high-yielding picks in the past, but it looks like he’s downplayed the “high current yield” bit somewhat for this new teaser. And yes, to be fair, we should note that the last […]
Louis Navellier is never shy about making promises — here’s how his latest ad for his Blue Chip Growth newsletter opens: “Why a tiny office in suburban Israel is our best bet — for repelling the attack — and turning a $7,500 investment into $22,500 by May 2012. “I don’t make this prediction lightly… you […]
My readers tend to have a love/hate relationship with Louis Navellier. He seems like a nice enough guy when I’ve heard him speak or briefly met him at conferences, but he’s also a numbers guy who recommends a long list of stocks in his newsletters and rides quantitative trends like earnings surprises and stock momentum […]
If you’re going to start your ad off with a line like this: “One Stock is the Difference between a Good 2011 and a Rolling-in-the-Dough 2011 … AND YOU DON’T OWN IT!” Well, you’re going to get the Gumshoe’s attention. I haven’t had a good “roll in the dough” since Scrooge McDuck invited me over […]
Happy Holiday! It’s President’s Day here in the U.S., and Family Day up on the Canadian side of the border, so the markets and interwebs are pretty quiet. On this placid day, I thought you might be interested in a look at a teaser I thought I had shared with everyone before — turns out, […]
Here’s how Louis Navellier pitches his next uber-hot idea for a stock that gives you three phone numbers on one phone and 10-bagger profits: “Last May I told you about a new wireless juggernaut whose 3-in-one proprietary technology and earnings growth matched Envirodyne, which handed us a monster 1,700% gain a few years back. “Since […]
Well, as you can imagine, the “GUARANTEED” part of that headline isn’t my word — nor are the rest of ’em, for that matter, I borrowed it all from the latest teaser for Robert Hsu’s Asia Edge newsletter. In that ad, Robert (or his intrepid copywriters) tell us about a Japanese exporter that will jump […]
Bryan Perry is fairly active in teasing ideas to garner new subscribers for his Cash Machine newsletter (formerly called 25% Cash Machine before, one assumes, that promise got to be too much to bear), and some of them have been pretty nice high yielders over the years, so when the questions about his latest tease […]
I wrote about Hilary Kramer and her new(ish) GameChangers newsletter for the first time just a couple weeks ago — so it’s certainly too early to judge whether her teaser stocks tend to perform as she predicts (that pick, Metalico, is down about 10% from when I wrote about it … but I don’t hold […]
Well, the questions have been pouring in for months about this newsletter … so finally I’m taking a look. This teaser comes in from Hilary Kramer, urging you to be a charter subscriber to her Breakout Stocks Under $5 newsletter, which looks for, you guessed it, stocks trading under $5 — a category that some […]
Sometimes the teases that catch the eye of your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe are long, detail-filled, and exhausting … and sometimes, they’re like little frustrating snacks, just enough of a hint that the Thinkolator might track it down, but often requiring a bit of a sleuthing slog. Today we’re looking at a small smorgasbord of […]
You know who I’ve been missing lately? Good ‘ol Louis Navellier — no one spins a promise and gets the heart racing for a growth stock like he does … so even though his latest ad isn’t one of the oldies but goodies (“this stock will double in a month or your money back!”), it’s […]
Robert Hsu’s copywriters can tease your credit card out of your wallet as quick as just about anyone, but the clues I wanted to dig through today are from something that Robert Hsu wrote that poses as an actual “article” on his AsiaInsider site — this is all about one of his China stocks that […]
Today the world’s thoughts are turning to gold … but just to be contrarian, I thought we’d look at something a little different. OK, a lot different. This is a teaser from Nancy Zambell for her Buried Treasure Under $10 newsletter, which I wrote about several times last year but hasn’t been quite as high […]
Several folks have sent along a teaser article that Robert Hsu published on his free site a couple days ago — in it, he tells us that China and India have joined on with the nonbinding Copenhagen Accord, and that as a result China has voluntarily agreed to reduce its “carbon intensity” significantly over the […]
I know I should stop rising to the bait of these Louis Navellier teasers … but I can’t help myself. Every month or two he throws out a new teaser along the lines of this one — some teased pick or another that is going to double “with or without you” … he’s not alone […]
I don’t end up writing about Jon Markman very often — he does a lot of marketing for his newsletter, but he rarely teases specific companies in his ads, he does a lot of short term (for me, at least) trading and uses ETFs for his core trading ideas, it seems … but he does […]
Robert Hsu has been a lot quieter over the last six months than he was in 2007 and early 2008 — back when “buy what China buys” was the mantra and almost every Chinese company with a US-listed stock was booming, his China Strategy newsletter was very popular with my readers, and his ads always […]
