The talk of “Trade War” is everywhere in the financial media, as you’ve no doubt seen — the first round of “tit for tat” trade tariffs has been decided on both sides, with the US planning tariffs against Chinese steel and aluminum and the Chinese retaliating with tariffs on a variety of mostly agricultural products […]
I’ve had a couple readers ask about this one, and it seems fairly interesting, so I thought I’d look into it even though it doesn’t seem to have been particularly actively promoted. The “tease” came in Steve Sjuggerud’s free Daily Wealth newsletter over the weekend, as bait to tempt subscribers into his True Wealth newsletter […]
Brett Eversole has a new ad letter out promoting subscriptions to True Wealth, Steve Sjuggerud’s “entry level” newsletter service over at Stansberry, and it sounds awfully exciting — how do we make 500% returns, and what’s the “tiny device that’s eating the world?” Well, the ad is all about mobile payments — using your cell […]
I’m a little late getting going today… I’d like to say that I’m jet-lagged, but really I’m just email-lagged as I try to dig through the few days of messages that I missed in my brief foray to the Emerald Isle over the past few days (which was fantastic, by the way, thanks for asking). […]
China-focused stock advisory launched late Summer 2016, initially aimed to profit from Chinese internet stocks that they thought had the potential to rise more rapidly than their US counterparts. Uses different subscription model ($2.000 nonrefundable fee, then $149/yr. for as long as you want to keep getting updates).
This ad has been rolling for a week or so, and a group of Gumshoe readers have already been discussing it and trying to figure out exactly what the Stansberry folks are talking about… but there are lots of questions still coming over the transom here at Castle Gumshoe, so let’s take a look. The […]
Any thoughts on Dr. Steve Sjuggerud recent alarm about the IMF adding a new reserve currency in October of this year? Pushing non us dollar based investments with 1000 percent plus gains.
A sudden avalanche of folks have been asking about this pitch again, so I thought I’d re-share and update my thoughts on something I wrote in the Friday File for the Irregulars back in October of 2013 … so yes, this is getting a little old. Much of this is from that original note, or […]
“NOTE: The following presentation is based on information obtained from a closed-door meeting at the New York Stock Exchange. It contains details of the exact timeline when the next stock market crash is set to occur.” That’s the intro to the latest pitch for Steve Sjuggerud’s True Wealth — so yes, it starts out with […]
Premium addition to the free DailyWealth newsletter, with options and other trading recommendations issued on a daily basis.
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of snooping around in Ian Wyatt’s teaser for a “Real Estate Tax Rebate,” so when I saw this latest Oxford Club pitch for a “Reverse Income Tax Fund” that you could invest in, well, it seemed only fair to give it a gander. So what’s the story? […]
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 […]
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 […]
Over the last several months we’ve seen several ads touting Steve Sjuggerud’s True Wealth Systems, which is apparently a big quantitative screening “supercomputer” that Steve subcontracted to some computer programmers — and which is supposed to identify investing anomalies that he can then write about to his subscribers, who then will profit. And I can’t […]
Investment recommendations generated by quantitative data-crunching system that looks for “anomalies.”
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 […]
Monthly newsletter aims to find undervalued, unloved or contrarian investments.
Those of you who have long toiled in the dusty, grimy classrooms of Gumshoe University will probably recognize this one — it’s an ad that has been around for years, with adjustments and variations depending on the market’s pulse and on the price of gold. The essential promise is that Steve Sjuggerud has found a […]
This is actually an odd little teaser that a few readers sent in to me recently — including one who offered a solution that is actually correct (forgot to ask for permission, so I won’t mention the name). Smart readers here, as always. What we get here, in exchange for subscribing to Steve Sjuggerud’s True […]
Steve Sjuggerud, whose name I think I have probably spelled half a dozen different ways in the last couple years, has a new ad for his True Wealth newsletter — and it’s teasing yet another compelling investment idea with a made-up name and an incredible promise. Here’s how the ad opens: “Take 10 minutes to […]
Just a quick note here for you, no complicated teaser to suss out. I received a brief email from Steve Sjuggerud, one of those Daily Wealth missives, and in it he teased a recent recommendation as follows: “For my paid subscribers, I uncovered an extraordinary opportunity – the “Hillary Trade.” I found a tech stock […]
This one comes in as part of a teaser letter for Steve Sjuggerud’s special higher cost newsletter, Sjuggerud Confidential … “the thing is, finding the bank that didn’t get into U.S. real estate, didn’t fall victim to exotic financial instruments, and didn’t take on too much risk, is like trying to find a needle in […]
We’ve passed the one year anniversary of the Gumshoe’s first writing in this space with little fanfare, I’m afraid. It’s OK, I know you meant to send flowers. It’s the thought that counts. And it was actually when I was going back through my old stuff and trying to figure out exactly what day I […]
I’ve had dozens of readers send this one along, most with a long line of question marks. The teaser has been around for a while (a couple years, as far as I can tell), but it continues to spark interest — especially with the dollar at ridiculous lows, inflation fears bubbling, and gold near $1,000 […]
“And collect up to $3,000 a month in TAX FREE income starting as early as Feb. 13, 2008.” That’s how a recent email teaser ad from Stansberry and Associates for Steve Sjuggerud’s True Wealth newsletter opens — and this kind of investment is always very appealing for folks when stocks are in crisis mode, as […]
Well, here’s another teaser that appears to have been resurrected from the backfiles, for a government-created “economic security fund” that “could help you safely earn 180% or more over next 2 years.” The last time around, more or less the same teaser email, for Steve Sjuggerud’s service with Stansberry and Associates, went around with the […]
A few of you have called my attention to a teaser that’s been making the rounds recently, from Steve Sjuggerud, for the Sjuggerud Confidential newsletter ($1,000). He’s saying that he has found a penny stock that is safe enough for him to recommend, and it’s a Macau property play. Unfortunately, the clues given are extraordinarily […]
