This particular ad, or one very much like it with a few edits, has been running for about six weeks — it’s a pitch to get you to subscribe to Global Investment Strategist from Yiannis Mostrous ($497, thanks very much), and it’s all about a key Apple (AAPL) supplier. Which has been a hot investing […]
Casual monthly newsletter highlighting favorite picks of Elliott Gue and Yiannis Mostrous that don’t make it into their higher-profile newsletters.
Happy Friday! Here’s the pitch from Yiannis Mostrous that got me interested today: “… the population of children aged zero to 14 has decreased steadily year after year… “… yet sales of children’s products have exploded—from USD 11 billion in 2005 to USD 30 billion in 2009. “This apparent disconnect is the direct result of […]
Yiannis Mostrous teased us well over a year ago about the stock that he thought was “the next McDonald’s” … and readers are telling me that he’s sending out a very similar ad campaign right now, so I thought I’d take a look. At the time, Mostrous was looking for subscribers to his Silk Road […]
I love love love the stories of swashbucklers and voyages of discovery that pepper the finest investment teaser ads — long lost islands, pirate treasure, ancient mines left fallow since the days of the Pharaohs … now that’s how you pitch an investment idea! If we didn’t all want a little of the romance of […]
We’re mired in snow emergency up here in Massachusetts, so today’s article is a rerun — this was originally published as part of the Friday File for the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars on November 12. It has not been revised or updated except to update the disclosure information at the bottom. As far as I know […]
Before I get into the meat of today’s Friday File article, which plays off of one of the investing themes I feel most strongly about (the long-term growth potential of Africa), I should share a few housekeeping notes regarding my portfolio — I decided to sell Accuray (ARAY) and got stopped out of my position […]
I usually have a nearly endless stream of teaser emails to sift through as I choose which “secret stock” to sniff out for you each day, and one way that I narrow them down is by looking at editors who’ve made similar claims about other stocks and been proven right — it’s no guarantee that […]
I haven’t written about Yiannis Mostrous in a while, but his latest ad that teases a hot investment that he calls “The Next McDonald’s” definitely got my attention. It’s a big promise, after all: “Thousands of investors became millionaires and lived their dreams as 100 shares of McDonald’s split 12 times and turned into a […]
Dividend-focused advisory recommending global stocks — seems to have replaced the more growth-oriented Global Investment Strategist, which was last edited by Benjamin Shepherd.
We’ve run across Yiannis Mostrous and his Silk Road Investor a few times before — and one of the companies he’s teasing us about today I’ve even written about before. But there’s some new stuff here, so perhaps it’s worth a look. Silk Road Investor is one of many newsletters that focus on Asia writ […]
This one is probably a few weeks old, going by the share price in the teaser, but it still might be interesting to folks … it is, at the very least, a truly unique investment. Good or bad, you can decide when you know the facts … but certainly unique. The teaser is from Yiannis […]
Of course, that oil happens to mostly be in Russia. Dang. Investing in Russia sometimes seems like it’s not that much more reviled than investing in North Korea these days, eh? I even think that there are probably plenty of folks out there, perhaps you included, who find the wildly uncertain investment in oil exploration […]
