It isn’t necessarily easy to make money from broad demographic shifts, since they take time and are difficult to predict in a detailed way — but the move of the baby boom generation through the various stages of their life to now has had a momentous impact on almost every part of American life, from […]
Newsletter formerly edited by Andrew Mickey and Christian DeHaemer — reconstituted as a new letter with new editor, American Wealth Underground, in 2010.
Weekly alert that says it looks for “cutting-edge opportunities… rare, exotic and mysterious opportunities that make hedge funds – and their clients – very rich.”
“When this controversial law takes effect on October 1, 2011… folks who act now could get ‘hedge fund rich’” That’s how Zachary Scheidt is launching his new service, called Hedge Fund Strategist from Taipan, a publisher in the Baltimore Agora-plex (Taipan is currently in the process of renaming itself “Insiders Strategy Group,” just to keep […]
Well, a week’s hiatus for your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe and the world remains in more or less the same mostly-negative feedback loop — more bank worries, more Euro panic, gold prices back above $1,900 again, more iPhone 5 hints and speculation … I guess part of me is relieved that the financial world is […]
“Special Situations” newsletter founded by Christian DeHaemer, appears to now be defunct.
I’ve written about a number of teasers from Michael Robinson during the couple years he’s been heading up the American Wealth Underground newsletter for Taipan (if that name doesn’t ring a bell, you might remember that this letter used to be the hypetastic BreakAway Investor under Andrew Mickey and others). Robinson is telling us that […]
Today’s ad comes rolling in from Zachary Scheidt for his New Growth Investor newsletter from Taipan, trumpeting the huge profits to come from the secretive “Back Mountain Covenant” that will allow Europe to break the Russian chokehold on natural gas. The teaser ad is a long one, of course — “short and sweet” rarely plays […]
How’s that for a promise, eh? 1,173% — not just a great return, but a remarkably specific prediction. Will it come true? Well, let’s see if we can figure out what they’re talking about — the ad is for a special report that Sara Nunnally is pitching, published by the folks at Taipan, called “Gain […]
Today I’m taking a look at a very florid teaser letter from Michael Robinson, who is apparently now helming Taipan’s Breakaway Investor newsletter, a service that has supplied us with a lot of entertaining ammunition over the years. The letter builds on the fact that Robinson is apparently a “special investigative correspondent” and former mainstream […]
This ad is from Justice Litle, who edits the Macro Trader newsletter. I’m more of a micro-trader myself, but I’ve had a lot of questions on this one, and I keep seeing it cycle through my mailbox with that October 7 deadline, so I thought I’d take a look. Here’s the promise in a quote […]
Well, if you’re a loyal Stock Gumshoe reader (and really, who wouldn’t be?), you may have noticed that I looked into an ad from Taipan’s Safe Haven Investor that teased us about the untold riches just waiting for us in the “Gulf Coast Vaults” … but I only got to the first “Vault Target” company […]
There are two great things about being a marketing copywriter — first, if you put it in quotes, you can say almost anything … and second, there are already a thousand successful ideas out there, you don’t need to come up with a new one each time you’re looking for an angle. This time we’re […]
Broader money management and financial libertarian letter, often covers alternative assets (Lending Club, stamps, bitcoin, etc.). Seems to have evolved from former publications Safe Haven Investor and Unconventional Wealth at a variety of affiliated publishers.
“… this is a completely hidden – and yet legal – drain on your retirement savings, mandated by the U.S. Government. And the worst part is that for the last five years, without fail, this “tax” has increased. In fact, at the current rate, over the next five years, you could be in line to shell out as much as 65% of your total retirement portfolio!” So what is Taipan talking about with this one?
“After 98 years of secrecy, the greatest economic conspiracy in history is finally unfolding.” “Learn how you could turn $5,000 into $100,000 (or more) by 2009 with this safe and simple profit/protection plan…” That’s how this latest ad opens, with the threat that the 98-year-old “Jeckyl Island Project” economic conspiracy will ruin your retirement — […]
This one’s from Christian DeHaemer for Material Profit, one of the “introductory” inexpensive newsletters from Taipan (on sale for $49 at the moment, apparently). This group is no stranger to your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe, but I don’t think I’ve looked at one from Material Profit before (I’ve looked at many from DeHaemer’s other services, most […]
Once again, Streetsifter has scooped the Gumshoe and written up another one for you, this one on a way to “profit from Exxon’s misfortune” and “turn $4 into $45” — just when the Gumshoe runs short on time, our friend Streetsifter seems to pull a great nicely-summarized sleuth job out of his hat for all […]
This one comes to us from Christian DeHaemer at Taipan, whose “reliable source” tells him that this stock could go from $5 to $15 in a matter of months … sounds like something we ought to take a look at, eh? This is an ad for his Volume Spike Alert, by the way — one […]
So, will the Gumshoe be wrong again? I was very skeptical of J. Christoph Amberger’s plan to buy in to stocks before they IPO in China, as a way of riding the wave of the Chinese stock market’s incredible growth. And the one time I saw a specific teaser that advocated this, I didn’t see […]
