written by reader What’s with the Stansberry ads?

By Anonymous Questions, February 5, 2013

I thought you were all about uncovering teasers and bypassing the ads, why do you have a Stansberry ad in your email?

Hi friend, Stock Gumshoe is supported both by advertising and by paid memberships.

We try to avoid selling ad space in our newsletter directly to stock promoters who are running pump and dump campaigns, but we do accept ads from the folks we write about and from any other publishers — most of the ads are sold through brokers, and not selected or solicited by Stock Gumshoe directly.

Publishers are apparently usually happy to advertise with us even when we write critical things about them, though we have had ad campaigns pulled or canceled due to stories we’ve written about those potential advertisers. That doesn’t bother me, we do not adjust our editorial coverage based on the ads we run. Advertisements in the daily email are marked as such, and we do not endorse our advertisers in any way. We have run many ads that we’ve already covered editorially, both positively and negatively.

Most ads on the site are handled by ad networks like Google and we do not pick or choose the advertisers in any way, but the ads should all be identifiable as advertisements depending on the format and criteria that Google or the other ad networks are using for such identification at any given time.

Thanks to Travis’s live price listings of all the teased stocks per year it is possible to pick the four best tipsters of 2012 whose picks were reviewed by Gumshoe.
They are: The Gardeners at Motley Fool 11 picks, 2 losers, average gain 31.09% to Feb 6 2013; Matt Badiali at Stansberry 8 picks 2 losers, average gain 21%; Alex Daley at Caseys E T. 4 picks 1 loser average gain 48%; Nick Vardy at Eagle F 4 picks 0 losers average gain 41%.
So if you are itching to subscribe these may be the hot tipsters.
regards Ian Shearer

Thanks Ian — note that those best ideas for three or four different newsletters were all the momentum-driven 3D printing stocks, either DDD or SSYS or both.

What’s your opinion of the new All Weather Investor being offered by Douglas Davenport?

I saw this offer as well and checked out the video. When something sounds too good to be true, it is. Apparently this guy developed a model by fitting the previous 5 or so years of data. This is all hindsight and it’s likely flawed to use it to predict the future.
