This article originally ran as part of the Friday File for the Irregulars on January 12. It has not been updated or revised since then, though I’ve left the original reader comments appended and have also added an extra update comment at the bottom of the article. –As Published on 1/12/18– I’ve been working on […]
This piece originally appeared as part of the Friday File for the Irregulars on July 28, but has now been unlocked for everyone. The company reported quarterly results about two weeks ago that were generally well received, and has otherwise gotten more positive press and analyst upgrades over the past month, and the shares are […]
Newsletter about pattern trading in cryptocurrencies.
Newsletter that suggests stocks set to pop each week.
Options trading service that recommends trades mostly based on quantitative models that predict stock price changes after quarterly earnings releases.
That headline might look a little familiar to longtime Gumshoe readers… that’s because Michael Robinson had a very similar ad back in 2013 (and again in 2015) touting MEMS as a “device to end all disease” … … so, is the ad still about the same stock? Let’s look and see. Here’s how the pitch […]
High-end advisory service from Rick Rule, who heads Sprott’s U.S. operations and is widely quoted by natural resources advisories… ads indicate that it will include in-depth coverage of natural resources stocks, perhaps include direct investment deals as well as regular stock recommendations.
The latest bit of promotional bloviation from Dr. Kent Moors is all about national defense, and about how the US Navy can protect itself from Chinese attacks in the South China Sea. Which is a bit of a change of focus for Moors — he has generally positioned himself as an energy industry expert, following […]
Today we’ve broken the Friday File up into two parts for your convenience — part one is all about a couple high-dividend technology stocks that look appealing to me right now, including one I bought a bit more of recently, and this one’s about a teaser that’s being foist upon the world by Bill pantaloon […]
I love Thanksgiving. I love that we all try to remember to slow down our lives a little bit, spend time with family and friends, and give thanks for the incredible blessings most of us enjoy and take for granted. But I also love naming our annual “Turkey” teaser stock. What is this? Well, if […]
Today we have the attention-getting “Say NO to Lithium Stocks” headline from Dr. Kent Moors in an ad for his Energy Advantage newsletter… and, as you will probably have already guessed, it’s really more of a “Say No to Lithium Stocks (except for this awesome little one I want to sell you one)” ad. So, […]
This article was originally posted on July 8 as part of the Friday File for the Irregulars. It has NOT been updated or revised, but we’re re-sharing it here and opening it up to all readers because we’re seeing the same ad again in heavy circulation from Dr. Kent Moors (still with a June 2016 […]
I’ll be fairly brief today with my Friday musings for you today, because I’m off to the Grant’s Interest Rate Observer Conference on Tuesday next week and I expect I’ll be writing a few extra notes for the Irregulars based on what I see in those presentations. I’m particularly interested in hearing the thoughts of […]
Trading service that recommends out-of-the-money put options to profit from companies with weak financials, with “carbon trades” that are essentially rolling those same put option trades forward when they expire and hoping to profit several times from a stock in persistent decline. Launched by Michael Lewitt in September 2016, he was replaced by Shah Gilani […]
Today I’m breaking up our Friday File into two segments, which many of you have noted that you prefer — one part is a teaser pitch solution, the other is an update on a few stocks that I own and/or have suggested to the Irregulars. The teaser pitch is a look into Cabot’s “Stock of […]
The folks at Money Map Press are following in the footsteps of a few other advisories by trying to not just pitch publicly traded stocks, but to pitch the idea that they can get you access to a specific private investment deal that you can’t find elsewhere. That’s probably true in some cases — there […]
This percolated up to the “most asked about” teaser pitch over the weekend, and it’s easy to see why — everyone loves royalties (or as the newsletters like to call it, “getting money for free without doing any hard work”), and Sid Riggs is saying that “you can get super rich in a matter of […]
Today we’ve got a two-fer — two different big publishers are teasing different “liquid biopsy” stocks, and I’m no expert on the technology or the prospects for this diagnostic “trend” that we’ve been hearing more about… so I’ll just sift the clues, identify the companies, and let you chatter about their merits amongst yourselves. The […]
I haven’t rushed in to cover this teaser pitch over the past few days, partly because I’ve already written about so many of the overhyped Money Map Press ads recently and partly because Gumshoe readers have already discussed it a little bit (and identified the stock) … … but a lot of you have been […]
Michael Robinson has been pitching “Living Metal” again recently, as an add-on to some of his ads for Nova-X Report over the last few weeks, so I thought I’d take another look at it for you. This is no longer the centerpiece of any promo campaigns that I can see, it was mentioned late in […]
Golly, most people who might subscribe to investment newsletters are baby boomers. And most of that generation is just a few years past their midlife crisis… so you can be pretty sure that a “silent epidemic” will get them to read your ad, yes? Apparently so, if the questions rolling in to Gumshoe HQ over […]
I haven’t looked at a teaser pitch from Private Briefing for a while, that’s the “pay as you go” monthly newsletter from Bill Patalon at Money Map Press — in the interim, the it looks like the price has just about tripled to $19.99 a month (that’s $239.88 a year for those who are math […]
“I’m going to make a $1.95 million bet. “You see, over the next few minutes, I’m going to show you a simple pattern I believe will allow you to achieve two incredible feats… “You could capture a series of 164.68% windfalls, and… “You will, with 100% certainty, only buy stocks that are going up. “At […]
Technical trading advisory that follows Keith Fitz-Gerald’s “X-Pattern” for buying and selling stocks based on trends (uses the AROON Indicator, probably along with other indicators and chart patterns).
This article first ran on October 8, 2014. The ad is running heavily again as of early March, and remains more or less unchanged… the article below is unchanged as well. The stock teased has returned about 14% since the article first ran, roughly twice the gain of the S&P 500. Our headline today is […]
I haven’t looked at the Capital Wave Forecast stuff from Shah Gilani in quite a while, so the latest teaser pitch from him and the Money Map folks caught my eye — particularly because he’s touting big moves in specific large-cap “blue chip” type stocks, which is pretty rare in newsletterdom (it’s a lot easier […]
Heads up: I made a mistake on this one when it first went up on the site. We strive for at least a 99% accuracy rate in identifying teaser targets, and this is apparently my mistake for 2014. Thanks to several readers for alerting me to the fact that I moved too quickly in posting […]
Fast-paced technical trading service.
Premium-priced trading service for small cap stocks, frequent “rocket stock” alerts.
Michael Robinson has been a big booster of tech ideas for his Nova-X Report, and lately he’s trying to sell his newsletter by using a special report that he says will reveal “The Wearable Tech Investment Opportunity of a Lifetime.” So naturally, Gumshoe readers want to know who it is. The spiel starts off with […]
I know a great many of the Irregulars have been interested in FDA dates recently, partly thanks to the community of biotech enthusiasts who have coalesced around the musings of our own Dr. KSS, so I thought I’d spin out a quick answer to you for a teaser pitch that’s been sent out quite breathlessly […]
Monthly newsletter that aims to pick stocks to benefit from big technology trends. Michael Robinson also edits the more expensive Radical Technology Profits for the same publisher.
Newsletter/trading service that aims to track important trading catalyst dates for biotech stocks, including FDA approvals and submissions and clinical trial data releases. Formerly called BioScience Millionaire.
Newsletter about shorting stocks.
I wasn’t intending to write about this particular teaser pick that’s circulating from Dr. Kent Moors for his Energy Inner Circle … mostly because he doesn’t get deep enough into any clues or specifics to let us really focus on a particular company for you. But everyone’s asking, so I figure we should at least […]
Trading newsletter that recommends a variety of trades based on big picture “capital waves” and investing trends in the global economy.
“Yesterday, I sent you an urgent briefing regarding China’s dangerous “Internet Army.” This situation is already moving fast. “The small tech company critical to crushing China’s attacks just won another contract for an undisclosed “data center”… its third multimillion-dollar contract in less than a month. “This is quickly turning into exactly the kind of win-win […]
The latest teaser ad for the Energy Inner Circle newsletter (edited by Dr. Kent Moors) is pitching the next great shale oil area — and it’s in Australia. The tease tells us that a tiny town called Coober Pedy, which is in an almost uninhabitable part of South Australia, is about to become an immense […]
The latest pitch from Dr. Kent Moors is for a new publication, a micro-cap energy stock trading newsletter and alert service called Micro Energy Trader. And though they say they’re restricting their subscriber list to 400 people (list price: $5,000 a pop — it’s “half off” right now), that’s more than enough to make some […]
Trading service from energy pundit Dr. Kent Moors, aims to speculate in teensy tiny energy companies (often well below $100 million market cap) for quick gains.
“Why I’m Ready to Place a $2,450 “Bet” on Your Behalf… “Given what we’ve learned about one tiny drug company – and the documented 82% success rate within the category of drug it’s developed – we think this is the “surest thing” we’ve ever found… “How this ‘wager’ could make you thousands of dollars (or […]
“I Have Access to Financial Strategies That You Don’t Have… “And They Could Be Worth a Fortune “Starting with the Next 295% Extravaganza… “I just discovered a large, sudden and concentrated block of insider buying. “Please… pay attention to this… “I’m talking about 7 insiders, including the CEO and CFO. They just spent $353,000 on […]
Monthly “pay as you go” subscription to the publisher’s pick of stock ideas from Money Map Press editors.
As promised, we’re taking another day to have a look at the “last five minutes” pitch that so many of you have been asking about. If you missed our first installment, you can go here to see that note — and get the background on that “last five minutes” means. In short, it’s a spiel […]
The good folks over at the Money Map Press are selling memberships in their “Passport Club” this week, and your impetus for signing up is that they will reveal their top-secret obesity drug that they think will be approved in about a week. The Passport Club, by the way, is one of those “lifetime” offers […]
Everyone hates taxes. Some of us don’t mind them as much as others, of course, or consider them a reasonable contribution toward common goals, but on April 15th no one who has to mail in an extra check to cover their taxes enjoys it. So the idea that you can redirect a tax, and get […]
We haven’t covered a pick from Dr. Kent Moors for a while, the erstwhile Duquesne professor (actually, not erstwhile — he’s still there) has been a pretty active stock teaser over the last year as he tries to build up the subscription base for his Energy Advantage newsletter (along with a few other higher-priced trading […]
Well, it didn’t take Michael Robinson long to alight on a new letter — the former editor of American Wealth Underground left his publisher and newsletter a while back (don’t know why, or if it was voluntary) and has now moved to Money Map Press. Both publishers (his old one was Insiders Strategy Group) are […]
Tech-focused newsletter from Michael Robinson, who previously edited American Wealth Underground
Monthly commodity-focused newsletter with trading alerts.
The folks at the Money Map Press are pitching one of those “kitchen sink” deals where you pay up front to get all of their newsletters for life — these are usually in the neighborhood of $3,000-5,000 with an “annual maintenance fee” that’s generally around a hundred bucks, and this one is right in line […]
We have a charming little tradition here at Stock Gumshoe of picking out the stinkiest stock to have been teased over the past year, and calling it our “Turkey of the Year” come Thanksgiving time. It’s not particularly fair — certainly not to turkeys everywhere, and probably not to the newsletter folks who use breathless, […]
Trading advisory with goal of “getting in fast, extracting all the profit we can, and getting out safe.”
Shah Gilani has been pitching his new service, The Spin Trader, as a way to trade off of the long-observed tendency of spin-off stocks to outperform the market. We started looking at his picks last week, with the odd result that the first “spin-off profit opportunity” he teased was a company that is currently not […]
This teaser ad from the Money Map folks for Shah Gilani’s Spin Trader has gotten a lot of attention from my readers … … and as with most of the drool-inducing ads for investment newsletters, it promises massive returns and makes them sound even sexier by inventing a new term to refer to this mysterious […]
Weekly newsletter focusing on spin-offs — sometimes recommending trades on both parent and child in spin-off transactions.
This article originally was restricted to the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars when published in October, but was opened up to public readership on December 2, 2011. The article was not revised, but author disclosure remains the same (I don’t own any of the stocks mentioned). We’re right at mid-month today, which would ordinarily be the time […]
Looks for big returns from penny stock and microcap “special situations”
Newsletter focused on resource investing, particular attention paid to gold. Formerly called Global Resource Alert.
This is really disappointing. All this time I’ve been under the impression that your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe and his terrifically handsome likeness were all the “female Viagra” the world needed … but apparently some pharmaceutical companies disagree, and have been trying to develop a drug along those lines. At least, that’s the pitch from […]
Dr. Kent Moors, who teaches political science at Duquesne and is an expert consultant on oil and gas topics, launched a newsletter with one of the many hype-crazy Agora-related publishers last year (Money Map Press, if you’re keeping track, itself a spinoff of Oxford Club if I’m keeping the spaghetti strands in order). In fact, […]
Oil and energy stocks-focused monthly newsletter.
Looks for global opportunities using “venture capital” criteria.
Income-focused newsletter that looks for “Alpha Bulldogs.”
Weekly options advisory newsletter
This ad is another one that piggybacks on Peter Schiff — as they did a few months ago, the folks at the Money Map Report are trying to sell their newsletter subscription by giving away a copy of one of Schiff’s books as part of the deal — and their promise is quite similar to […]
Options strategy newsletter.
Free daily email newsletter, generally includes rotating commentary from most of the Money Map Press editors.
Trading service that targets companies, including those with insider buying patterns.
International stock picking service that uses macro trends.
Makes long and short stock recommendations.
Weekly updates from a service that picks fast-growing Chinese stocks.
I started yesterday to look at the latest teaser ad from Keith Fitz-Gerald and his Money Map Report — the basic theme of this ad is that the sovereign wealth funds have tons of cash, and Keith thinks he can predict where that money will go. He teased three companies in that ad — the […]
This one comes in from the folks at the Oxford Club, as a tease for their Money Map Report newsletter. It’s a bit different in terms of the marketing offer, since technically they’re trying to sell you a special report about agribusiness, and then you get a “free” subscription to Money Map Report if you […]
Several of you have undoubtedly seen this email come across your screens in the last week or two, it’s been in pretty heavy rotation as far as I can see. And it’s an ad for just the kind of investments many folks are looking for these days: foreign “blue chip” stocks. The newsletter being teased […]
