This article first appeared over a year ago, on February 8, 2016, but the teaser pitch is still making the rounds and I’m still getting questions about it, so I’m re-posting it here for your information. The data below and my comments are all from a year ago, I have not updated or revised them […]
Mitchell Clark edits Passive Monthly Income for Lombardi, and an ad of theirs this week promises great gains from “PRIP” investments… … so, naturally, we want to know what those are. Right? I don’t know if we want to subscribe to Passive Monthly Income or not, that’s one of dozens of newsletters published by Lombardi, […]
George Leong edits the Pennies to Millions newsletter for Lombardi, and he’s got an ad out now touting three different “penny stocks” that could make you buckets of cash … … the basic pitch is for “unknown” or “hidden” stocks with “home run” potential, and generally at fairly low prices (using “penny stocks” in the […]
Some people don’t realize that marketing for financial newsletters is at least as much about finding successful pitches that will catch your interest as it is about touting the latest and greatest stocks picked by a particular newsletter pundit. They often come up with a new ad to sell their newsletter when they’ve discovered an […]
I should probably confess, before I get into today’s teaser sleuthification, that I don’t like organized religion. Disorganized religions are fine, because they don’t get together and try to figure out how to enroll other people (like me) in their belief system, or grow so big that they lose sight of their beliefs entirely, but […]
Subscription service launched by Lombardi sometime in 2014? Unclear — seems to be focused entirely on the shale energy revolution.
Newsletter published by Lombardi.
That’s a grabby headline, right? Gives me a chance to remind you that no, I’m not touting these stocks or pitching these ideas — I’m just sharing the answers to the compelling teaser pitches that are sent our way by the newsletter marketers. So no, I don’t necessarily think a 1,295% gain is ahead. But […]
With a headline like that, it’s no wonder that Gumshoe readers have been asking about the latest pitch from Lombardi Financial. Lombardi is pitching a service I haven’t written about before called Payload Stocks … the editor of the letter is someone named Moe Zulfiqar, which is probably too cool of a name to be […]
Trading service that aims to speculate on small stocks that have hired “investor relations” firms to pump up their stock price.
[Ed Note: Our latest article by junior miner man Myron Martin follows. He has agreed to our trading restrictions, and we have not reviewed, approved or screened his stocks or ideas, and the opinions he expresses are solely his own. Many of the stocks Myron covers are microcap “penny stocks” that can move dramatically with […]
That quote above is from George Leong, who’s trying to get you to sign up for his Small-Cap Growth Stocks newsletter. He says that new subscribers can “be the FIRST to read about a great undervalued, undiscovered American company that could hand you a $120,000 gain by year’s end.” Sound good? Well, he makes it […]
As I promised yesterday, there’s a second “special report” being teased by Michael Lombardi as an enticement to new subscribers to his Investing with Michael newsletter … … the first one was that “New Swiss Bank” teaser that told us we could get 5% yields, growth and safety on par with the Swiss banks (or […]
Conservative large-cap portfolio managed by Michael Lombardi
The latest pitch from Mitchell Clark comes in for the Explosive Mine Stocks newsletter from Lombardi — and I don’t know where the dude finds the time. Clark is apparently now responsible for four or five newsletters at Lombardi, when I’ve written about him in the past he’s tended to focus on small cap stocks […]
Dividend-focused stock advisory.
Monthly newsletter recommending natural resource stocks, primarily in mining.
Looks for low-priced stocks.
That headline comes straight from the top of the latest teaser ad I’m looking at now — from George Leong of the Profit Confidential/Lombardi gang, in a pitch for his Pennies to Millions newsletter. I can’t say that I’ve heard of this letter, which might be new (like most publishers, they trot out new letter […]
Our latest ad rolls in on a tide of resource riches lust — it’s for the new natural resources-focused newsletter from Lombardi called Resource Stock Millionaire … which sounds a lot like their older letter, Explosive Mine Stocks, though this one will be edited by Mitchell Clark (who we’ve written about before, mostly when he’s […]
Nothing pushes investors to sign up for a newsletter subscription like urgency … that’s why the copywriters are trained to tap into the reptilian greed centers in our brains and tell us that this unbelievable, hot, stupendous stock market opportunity is only available for a few precious moments so you really simply must sign up […]
Weekly stock picking service.
Today’s tease has been forwarded by a handful (or a few hands full, I suppose) of curious readers — our teaser is Mitchell Clark for his Penny Stock Reporter, and in exchange for his special recommendation of a Chinese copper stock he’d like you to sign up for a subscription to his newsletter … at […]
Small cap stock newsletter.
If the last few years of Stock Gumshoe-ing have taught me anything, it’s that many of my readers love gold, and many more of them love dividends. So when the folks at Lombardi issued this email blast promoting Inya Ivkovic’s Explosive Mine Stocks newsletter, it caught my eye — they tease us that you can […]
I got a lot of questions over the weekend about this latest ad for the Income for Life newsletter from Lombardi Publishing — and the digging I did made me want to call some attention to this teaser as a bit of a cautionary tale … Mitchell Clark, who feels the need to add “b. […]
Biotech stock picking service.
Short term stock trading newsletter
Today’s exercise in hyperbole comes from the folks at Lombardi Publishing — they’re trying to get you to subscribe to their VIP Fast Track newsletter, which I’ve never heard of before (each of their editors seems to have almost a half-dozen newsletters, perhaps they’re just throwing them out to see what will stick … like […]
Looks for “special situation” investments including things like mergers, spinoffs, etc.
Newsletter than presents at least one small-cap stock selection each month. It looks at minimally covered small-cap stocks that trade under $20.00 a share.
That’s the way this teaser begins: “Government Ordinance 458 Guarantees Your Profits on the New “General Electric” of China” This is an ad not for a subscription, but for a special report from Michael Lombardi (who writes the free newsletter Profit Confidential) — the special report costs $95. I don’t see these very often, probably […]
