Navellier’s “Tech Doubler: breakthrough technology that turns 50-year old coaxial cable into a 1-gigabit home networking solution”

We haven’t looked at a Louis Navellier pitch for a little while, and this one caught the eye of some intrepid Gumshoe readers — it is, like virtually every Louis Navellier pitch, a promise that his favorite growth stock will double this year… though he goes even further in announcing that “long term, a $1,000 […]

2015 Turkey of the Year!

Every year, I scroll through the last twelve months or so of teaser picks and look for one that really stands out as the stinker of the bunch, to be called the Turkey of the Year and hold that place of honor at Thanksgiving time. Hopefully, we can all give thanks that we didn’t own […]

What the heck is the “Tesla of Medical Devices?”

The ad one everyone’s asking about today is from Louis Navellier, it’s a pitch for his Emerging Growth newsletter (currently $995/year) — and this might be the first time we’ve seen the “Tesla of XXX Sector” marketing spiel. Perhaps it’s a changing of the guard, we used to be told we were looking at the […]

Navellier’s “Rare Opportunity to Turn $1,000 into $200,000” in Wireless Power

Lots of questions about this one, so as I run out to a meeting today I’m re-releasing it for you — Navellier’s pitch is in heavy circulation again, and the ad is still touting the same stock as his similar ads of a month ago. The article below first ran on July 16, when the […]

“3 stocks I believe have the absolute best chance of making you rich before the end of 2015.”

Criminy, I definitely couldn’t pick three stocks that I think have the absolute best chance of making you rich over the next six months — but that’s the promise from Louis Navellier in the latest ad for his Emerging Growth newsletter. And naturally, he says we have “only 48 hours!” So I guess I’d better […]

“Alzheimer’s ‘Miracle Cure’ Discovered — Your Key to an Untapped $189 Billion Market”

This is all hush-hush, you understand — I’m taking terrible risks by just writing to you today. And my intrepid readers, members of the resistance, have also pushed the limits in sharing this news. The ad makes this very clear — it came with the subject line, “WARNING! Do Not Share, Do Not Forward” But […]

“Grab Your Share of Al Gore’s $100 Million … Buy this Politically Correct Doubler”

Here we are again — another promise of a “doubler” from Louis Navellier, who apparently has never seen an earnings beater he didn’t want to buy. This time, though, his copywriters have a bit of an odd pitch on this one — they’re using Al Gore, who among the investing punditry class is often cast […]
