A Porter Stansberry newsletter about speculation, where they “attempt to profit from market extremes”.
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 […]
Buy this ‘Under $0.50’ Stock by November 1st, 2013 “This is one of the few times in the history of our business we have recommended a company so small and with such high upside potential. A triple-digit gain within the next 12-36 months is highly possible…. “We’ve been vetting the opportunity for nearly two years.” […]
Premium addition to the free DailyWealth newsletter, with options and other trading recommendations issued on a daily basis.
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.
Trading research service focused on Jeff Clark’s options trading strategy.
This is all going to sound at least somewhat familiar — the Stansberry folks are sending around a teaser ad that cites Hillary Clinton’s huge non-government earnings on her tax returns, and tells us that through the miracle of “Mainz Income” we can all make money using this same technique. It’s familiar because it’s been […]
Well, well, well — another month, another Phase 1 teaser from Frank Curzio and the Stansberry folks. And if you’re going to use your massive mailing list of a few million investors to sell a $3,000 newsletter that most of them won’t ever consider, well, you can pretty much predict that the queries will make […]
Here’s the lead-in to the new Stansberry & Associates pitch: “How I Got My Multi-Millionaire Grandmother To Finally ‘Spill The Beans’ On Her BIG Retirement Secret “She went from making $17 a week… to completely retired, practically overnight. She hasn’t worked a day in over 53 years and will NEVER outlive her money. “She’s never […]
Phase 1 Investor is the big kahuna newsletter at Stansberry & Associates, the $5,000 newsletter that they typically discount to $3,000 when sending out promo emails … … and they market this letter so heavily that Gumshoe readers flood our inbox whenever a new Phase 1 teaser ad runs. So … another of their teasers […]
Today we’re looking at something that several readers have asked me about, but that I haven’t seen pushed all that actively by a hyperactive teaser. Don’t worry, we won’t completely avoid hyperbole … they always sneak it in somewhere. But this pitch is for a stock being recommended by Steve Sjuggerud for his True Wealth […]
Steve Sjuggerud just started teasing a new website that he’s launched called valuableproperties.com — which apparently is an add-on to his True Wealth newsletter, at least for now (one presumes that if it’s a big hit, they’ll come up with a way to charge more for it). The ad is posed as an “interview” with […]
I guess we should really be calling this “A.O.P. 2.0”, since the Stansberry folks used this same basic marketing pitch on investors about five years ago — though I think that was in service of their S&A Resource Report (then called the S&A Oil Report), and this one is an ad for the relatively conservative, […]
Water always gets quite a bit of attention around Gumshoe Headquarters — it is a perennial topic of investor interest, and we see waves of excitement about water stocks rise and fall with some regularity. And it’s not hard to see why — fresh, clean water is in short supply in much of the world […]
“The last time this happened, early investors had an opportunity to make a fortune. Now one team of researchers thinks it’s happening again… with an unusual, little-known mining stock.” That’s the opening of the latest teaser from Frank Curzio for his Phase 1 Investor newsletter, and it’s not the first time we’ve heard the promise […]
Huh? Are the Canadian Maple Leaf silver coins going to suddenly become twice as valuable as the American Eagle silver coins? No, don’t worry, it’s not that simple and silver is still fungible, an ounce is an ounce is an ounce (well, a troy ounce, anyway). So what’s the idea of “Canadian silver” being somehow […]
It’s probably no surprise that the Stansberry & Associates newsletters probably get more attention from Stock Gumshoe than most of the others — they’re right up there with the Motley Fool when it comes to the size of their mailing lists and the response from our readers to their promos, so everything they do and […]
I had another note in mind to share with you today, but the overwhelming demand for answers about the new Phase 1 promo that started mailing last night has jumped it to the top of my inbox. Frank Curzio’s Phase 1 Investor newsletter, which is the pricey letter published by Stansberry ($5,000, but usually “on […]
This teaser is going to get a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, partly because Stansberry Phase 1 Investor teasers always get a lot of attention (they usually tease a small stock and they charge $5,000 for the newsletter, which gives them an aura of awesomeness — deserved or not), and partly because the pitch […]
This teaser has gotten a lot of attention from my readers, as do all the pitches thrown by the folks at Stansberry’s Phase 1 Investor newsletter — you just know that if you charge $5,000 for a subscription, and use one of the world’s largest investor mailing lists to tease a tiny stock in order […]
I’ve been blathering about my own investments in these Friday Files for a couple weeks now, but for today we’re going back to sniffing out teaser picks … in this case, a teaser pick for “Gold Fracking” that Frank Curzio has been sending out pretty aggressively for a couple days in pitches for his Small Stock […]
Matt Badiali edits the S&A Resource Report, which is an “entry level” (ie, less than $100 a year) newsletter that’s currently “on sale” for $39, and his latest pitch for new members has caught the attention of many of the folks in Gumshoe Nation. He’s pitching something he calls “Secret Gold Societies” … and if […]
I don’t often cover the same editor or pundit twice in a row, but it’s not exactly a hard rule … which is a relief, because the most interesting thing I came across this morning was another teaser from Dan Ferris. Now, it’s not the same hard sell as his 12% Letter pitch that we […]
We haven’t covered the 12% Letter in these pages for a few months, if memory serves, so I was pleased to get several questions from readers about their latest teaser for the “secret retirement legacy” that’s apparently been offered up by George Bush (the dumber one, not the older one). Did I just type that […]
We’ve now reached a groundswell of eager reader questions about Steve Sjuggerud’s “Treasury Rights” teaser, so let’s dig in and have a look. Steve’s letter tells us that this is “the most realistic way to make outrageous ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ gains today” … a very tantalizing promise indeed. And of course, for the full information about these […]
Steve Sjuggerud is teasing us with something genuinely compelling as he urges us to subscribe to his True Wealth newsletter: investments that NEVER go down. Really? Yep, his pitch is that he has three kinds of investments that, if taken together, can be considered to be a “mutual fund” that never goes down. They’re not […]
Small cap resource stock picking letter, mostly Canadian juniors.
Active trading newsletter, tends to focus on income and options trades.
I suppose I should expect this by now — whenever Frank Curzio and the gang put out a teaser for Phase 1 Investor, which is the big-money newsletter from Stansberry & Associates ($5,000/year, though almost always “on sale” at $3,000 when they’re running promos), my inbox gushes like Spindletop. Didn’t matter if it was a […]
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 […]
OK, you can stop asking now — because we’re just about to finish up with our latest multi-part series, covering the “loopholes” from the “Black Market Income” teaser for Stansberry’s 12% Letter. This letter pitches the idea that they have a secret website that “Wall Street” doesn’t want you to see — all about how […]
A couple variations on this teaser about “black market income” have been rolling around the marketplace for months now — the actual investments are still relatively normal, mainstream-ish companies and strategies, just as they were when the 12% Letter called parts of this “black market income” strategy by other names, which is why I haven’t […]
You can always count on a good story from a Phase 1 teaser — Phase 1 is the fancy top-of-the-line upgrade newsletter from Stansberry & Associates ($5,000/year, though it’s usually “on sale” for $3,000 when they’re promoting it as they are now), currently edited by Frank Curzio, and it has historically focused on lots of […]
Mike Williams, who edits the True Income newsletter from Stansberry & Associates, has been trying to get new subscribers by promising to reveal the secrets of the “32% clause” that can pay you a huge annual income stream. So what on earth is he talking about? Here’s how the ad begins: “Introducing: A completely legal […]
Frank Curzio is tantalizing us to subscribe to his Penny Stock Specialist newsletter (Stansberry & Assoc.) by teasing about a few penny stocks in the shale gas business — but of course, that’s not enough, there has to be a huge back story as well. And the story this time, should you choose to sit […]
Today I’m sniffing out a solution to a teaser that is just a couple sentences long — not really a “hyped to the moon” stock like so many I write about, but one that sounded interesting to me (and to enough of my readers that the questions are piling up a little bit). It’s from […]
How can you find sacks of treasure located around 776 cities around the country? That’s the pitch from Retirement Millionaire from Stansberry & Associates — the ad, which is one of those good ol’ video ads that doesn’t happen to link to a text version, even includes a “treasure map” of those cities around the […]
After several years of touting (and sometimes teasing) microcap mining stocks for subscribers of Stansberry’s super-expensive Phase 1 newsletter, Matt Badiali is launching a new letter that focuses on these small stocks, picks that he says are too small and volatile for his inexpensive S&A Resource Report letter. This letter is called the S&A Junior […]
Those who’ve been with the Gumshoe for a while know that it’s tough to top Stansberry’s Phase 1 Investor for marketing that uses over-the-top hyperbole about tiny biotech and mining stocks, and creative names that obscure the truth behind their investments — that doesn’t seem to have changed much with the new(ish) guy at the […]
Today’s tease didn’t come to me directly and I haven’t seen the original ad or letter where it appeared, but this excerpt was forwarded by a large number of folks who appear to have some interest in a good ‘ol blue chip-type investment. The tease must have been in some kind of subscribers-only letter for […]
I always like to see what Dan Ferris is recommending for subscribers of his Extreme Value newsletter, in part because I’m personally invested in a few of his picks that have done well (Altius Minerals and Sprott Resource), and in part because I’m generally sympathetic to the notion that long-term “value” investing is the best […]
I’ve been getting lots of questions about this secret toll-free phone number this week, so I thought I should try to take a look for you today. Apparently it’s all about some way to boost your dividend by calling a special phone number — which can’t help but conjure up a mental image of vast […]
Well, someone on the forum just this morning asked if we could “stick a pin in this balloon” … and I’m happy to oblige. The “Penny Bonds” teaser is in an ad for True Income, a newsletter from Mike Williams over at Stansberry & Associates, and it’s all about how these investments can be “more […]
Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve written about this particular investment newsletter from the Stansberry folks, so I thought I should take a look for all the new people we have on board here at Stock Gumshoe over the last six months … and to see if he’s changing up his strategy at […]
This article is an excerpt from the May 21 Friday File (the extra commentary that paid members of this site receive) — but I’m still getting a lot of questions about Dan Ferris and his farming stock, so what follows is the part of that note regarding the teased agriculture company. I have not updated […]
There’s a small stack of potential teasers just sitting and waiting for the attention of the Thinkolator, but your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe is but a humble servant to the masses of the assembled Gumshoe faithful … so when I start getting hundreds of questions about one specific teaser, that moves to the top of the […]
Well, the folks at Stansberry are now releasing the penny stock newsletter that they’ve been testing for a few months — and of course, they’d like you to subscribe. The editor is Frank Curzio, who used to run a similar newsletter at TheStreet.com focusing on stocks under $10. So just as a warning, both Curzio […]
Quite a number of you have sent notes to me about these, um, notes lately — if you’re on many of the newsletter or financial mailing lists you’ve probably seen them, too. This is a teaser that promises … “Buy this investment today and “lock in” a minimum gain of 244% (It could possibly even […]
Many of the delightful readers of Gumshoe Nation have sent in this ad, for the True Income service from Stansberry & Associates. As with so many ads these days, it teases us that, (if we’ll just subscribe and follow their advice), we can make tremendous profits with lower risk. Here’s how it opens: “Can “Mega-Bond” […]
Stansberry & Associates’ Phase 1 Investor newsletter is teasing us about shares of a drug company: “On March 30, FDA results we’ve waited 2 years to receive could make you $195,600, overnight” — and they quote Porter Stansberry as saying that “This is the kind of situation that can change your life… where a $10,000 stake can allow you to literally quit work, forever.” Sounds nice, eh?
Phew, just when you think things are slowing down for the summer … out comes a new concept in Gumshoe teaserdom. Porter Stansberry’s folks are launching a new service, called True Income, which invests in something a little bit different … something that they’re teasing as “finally, a safe alternative to stocks!” The service is […]
Whatever they’re paying the copywriters at Stansberry & Associates, it’s not enough. This stuff is pure gold! Drive-Thru Retirement … now that’s a good idea. I’ll take the Super Size Value Combo, please! The latest ad from S&A is for a new service they’re providing, a monthly dividend tracking system of some kind, which essentially […]
