Lots of readers have been sending questions our way about Porter Stansberry’s new high-cost Stansberry Venture Value newsletter, which is his attempt to build a service that essentially recommends small cap value stocks for long-term compounding value. An admirable goal, and I guess we’ll start to learn in the coming year or two how it’s […]
High cost newsletter launched early in 2017, focused on identifying “10X” stocks that are small but have great capital efficiency and potential for very high long-term returns. Originally sold as part of a $7,999 lifetime package (plus $299/year renewal fee) with Dave Lashmet’s Stansberry Venture Technology.
This is getting a little ridiculous. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single mining stock as aggressively endorsed by investment newsletters as Northern Dynasty has been over the past few months. So this is just a short note to let you know that, yes, you can add another one to the pile — it’s […]
Lots of folks have been asking me about this latest “Magic Stock” that’s been hinted at by Porter Stansberry in his ads for Stansberry’s Investment Advisory… and I can see why. It sounds delightful — and most of the premise is based on the fact that these “magic” stocks that can grow profitably forever, with […]
Porter Stansberry’s 2016 push for gold, which he thinks could hit $10,000 — differently structured newsletter, with a $1,500 up front charge for the full portfolio report and then $49 a month for portfolio updates.
This is not a heavily hyped stock sent out in lots of ads — I should make that clear up front. But it’s a puzzle, and I like to solve puzzles… so I thought I’d sniff it out for you. The tease was part of a Stansberry letter that seems to have gone just to […]
[what follows was originally published in 2012 and 2013, it has not been updated (the pitch for the service remains similar, presumably the strategy does as well) but is being brought up to the top of the page because so many readers are asking about it this week.] It appears that Porter Stansberry is pushing […]
We’ve written some in these parts about the many, many predictions of a US dollar collapse and an associated economic and societal collapse — recent newsletter pitches that spin this “doom” story have come fast and furious from Porter Stansberry and several others, and they are a pretty popular stock in trade in the world […]
OK, so this one’s a bit tricky. And not just because the clues are a bit limited. Don’t worry, we’ll still find an answer for you … but a caveat or two first … Frank Curzio edits Phase 1 Investor, which is Stansberry’s “big ticket” newsletter that typically covers small tech, biotech and natural resources […]
Premium-priced options trading service, seems to be built on using “blue chip” stocks for the underlying investment idea and selling puts for income on those stocks while using some of that cash to buy calls for upside leverage.
Well, you probably know the drill by now — if there’s going to be a teaser pitch made for a $5,000 (or $3,000 “on sale”) newsletter, and if that pitch is going to be made by probably the largest marketer in the newsletter world, well, yours truly is going to be inundated with requests to […]
Porter Stansberry loves to take strong, vocal positions on controversial stocks, and some of those have worked out well. He also rubs a lot of people the wrong way, partly because of his abrasive libertarian screeds and his aggressive marketing campaigns and partly just because he comes across as brash and wealthy. I’ve met with […]
Over the last few days I’ve been getting a lot of questions from Gumshoe readers about the latest “World Dominator” pick from Dan Ferris over at Stansberry’s Extreme Value newsletter — they’ve apparently been hinting at it and teasing it to the subscribers of their other letters, and piquing the interest of my readers who […]
There was big news from one of my personal holdings this week, and it’s also a stock that I’ve suggested twice to the Irregulars and written about several times over the years so I thought it warranted at least a little reaction … particularly because it drove the shares down precipitously. So I’ve bought more […]
Don’t worry, we haven’t just been sitting around here at Gumshoe HQ, waiting for the Fifth Coming … in fact, although I may have an itchy “buy” finger to upgrade my own iPhone when this new one becomes available next week, I’ve spent the day looking into something completely different. Porter Stansberry has been blanketing […]
I generally don’t like to write about super-heavily-hyped microcap stocks for the whole Gumshoe readership, because we’re almost guaranteed to cause a spike in the price for that stock. So when I saw the latest teaser for the Phase 1 folks over at Stansberry, and those teasers always cause a huge flood of emails to […]
I LOVE this ad. Not just because it’s fun to read, full of hyperbole, and fills our head with dreams of huge investment returns — they all do that. No, I love it because it’s great to see the big newsletter publishers answering each others’ challenges — you’ve certainly seen and heard Porter Stansberry’s “End […]
This story has been making the rounds for quite a while — and in different versions, I’ve written about essentially this same pitch before … but it’s been years since it really hit the Gumshoe radar, and folks keep asking, so I thought I’d check out this latest version of the ad for you. The […]
The latest newsletter to head our way via a big and mysterious marketing pitch is called The Palm Beach Letter, signed by a guy named Mark Ford — who is apparently the same dude as Michael Masterson, who has for a long time been a big name in copywriting and self-help “work from home” marketing […]
I was going to hold off on writing about this teaser until Friday and cover it just for the Irregulars in the Friday File because it’s a tiny stock and I’ll very likely be influencing the price by writing about it for this larger group today — but I’ve gotten so many questions in just […]
