I skimmed that pitch, and he’s mostly saying that he expects a distressed debt crash and then it will be a good idea and there will be lots of opportunities. He had a similar junk bond advisory before, helmed by Mike Williams I think, that did OK with some bonds (like Rite Aid) but also, I think, had a couple bankruptcies — always important to diversify. He hasn’t pitched any specific bonds yet, though presumably their first recommendations might be in energy or materials where the huge washouts of junk bonds have hit so far if they’re waiting for a… Read more ยป

Stansberry’s previous distressed bond newsletter was called True Income. If you want to read the recommendations made in that previous publication, go to the main page on the Stansberry Research website and click on the link near the bottom of the page called “General Archive.” You should then be able to click on the True Income link to read all the past issues. I believe the General Archive is a collection of all the publications that are no longer being published and is open for anyone to read.

I just got Stansberry’s Credit Opportunities November 2015 letter. He’s recommending Natural Resource Partners NRP, with a bond due in 2018, trading at $75 now (meaning $750). He suggests creating a “synthetic convertible bond” by also buying some common stock, now trading at $1.70 a share. NRP doesn’t do the coal mining, it leases coal reserves to mine operators in exchange for royalty payments. Everything Stansberry says sounds good. Could I have a second opinion?

Did that recommendation work out for you?

It’s above $83 today…so it appears to be working out so far. 19.267 Yield.

The stock; however, is below $1 now, taking the 1:10 split into account.

We paid for Credit Opportunities in October 2015. We have entered all the bond picks that fell within his recommended price. The NRP recommendation alone has paid for the subscription even though we have not cashed out yet as we are supposed to hold to maturity. We closed out of the Hecla mining pick as per recommendation at a profit. All the rest of the picks are at a profit. Entering the second year and need to see how it works out moving forward.
All recommendations are accompanied by a thorough and detailed analysis.

I’m an individual investor with very little weight so I feel kind of helpless but Stansberry and associates are thieves. The original publication that dealt with corporate debt (True Income) was cancelled presumably because the types of investments were just too risky. Personally I made good money by following the suggestions made in that publication. It cost me thousands of dollars to subscribe to True Income and then they cancelled it and replaced it with some garbage rag about Overseas Investing which to my knowledge never suggested an investment that made a dime. The long and short of it, is… Read more ยป

I wonder how often Stansberry retires a newsletter and replaces it with another, forcing subscribers to pay again or lose out.

Hi Mark Richard Taylor, I too subscribed to True Income. It was a good diversification from stocks and it did well even with a couple of company bankruptcies, the two analysts who authored it were quite helpful & responsive to questions. I had a “Lifetime” subscription which lasted for 3-1/2 years. They replaced my lifetime subscription with a 2 year subscription to “Income Intelligence”, which I already had a lifetime subscription to and with a 1 year subscription to “Extreme Value”. So they converted my lifetime subscription into a 1 year subscription to a highly risky stock newsletter that I… Read more ยป

I am intrigued by Porter Stansberry’s pitch for their “Stansberry Credit Opportunity. I didn’t call, but I’m sure they are asking thousands for the newsletter. Will you guys here at Stock Gumshoe be following that newsletter and reporting on it here? If so, is there a way on this site to earmark just those posts so I see them as soon as they are posted??

I haven’t looked at the ad in detail, but it looks similar to the previous junk bond service he published — I’m pretty skeptical that there are many “big discount” bonds available outside the energy space right now, but the basic argument seems still to be that you can buy bonds cheap because they’re priced for high bankruptcy risk, but his analysis can pick the ones that are less likely to really go bankrupt.

If we cover it in detail, it will go out in our daily email.

I listened to the pitch and it was 3000 bucks for the publication . I didn’t subscribe . they create different publications which aren’t included in my subscription to get extra money . The advice is pretty good but the hyperbole advertising is too much and I can’t afford to keep getting new services
