Performance of Mampilly’s “True Momentum” and “Extreme Fortunes” Premium Newsletters

By patchman, September 16, 2017

I would like to hear from some of the brave souls out there that invested in these two newsletters by Paul Mampilly. I subscribe to his flagship newsletter ”Profits Unlimited”, which I highly recommend to everyone, but have held out on the other two that are much pricier. Specifically, I would like to know his batting average of winners versus losers, and is it paying for itself many times over? I’m not wanting to get his picks for free, but simply want to know if a subscription will be a good investment. Thanks!!

I have subscribed to all three of Paul’s newsletters. I agree and recommend Profits Unlimited well worth the money. I Subscribed and Unsubscribed to True Momentum there was one very good recommendation but I had already invested in it from a prior recommendation from MF Stock Advisor. I am very curious about the new recommendation out now to reel in new subscribers. I would appreciate any information about this stock. I have now subscribed to Extreme Fortunes new portfolio since February. The portfolio consists of lower priced equities. By and large the portfolio is doing very well. 13 stocks =… Read more »

First pick was NRG which I sold for about a 60% gain in a few months. I’m an EF member with about a 5 year outlook. I believe it’s a solid service. Got the TM pick from a bud. Others can comment how it’s done from there.

Mampilly is claiming some huge pick for tomorrow but Banyon Hill is guilty of this type marketing for any of their services.

I like the extreme fortunes, focusing on long term/ high return, less expensive stocks. Buy and forget for awhile.
I think True Momentum is focused on large caps breaking out, just wasn’t performing well for me for the subscription price.
I’m relying on SG to sleuth TM new pitches.
I picked up a servicetip from here by jyoung007.
For the subscription price $20 a month, I think CML Pro is very impressive, it is technology oriented.

Agree with Michael. EF has been good and should deliver great results in the upcoming years. Naturally curious about the highly advertised Mampilly pick due out tomorrow (9/20). Hoping Travis can bust the mystery promising huge gains.

@Just Say’n, could you let me know “EF has been good…” what is EF stands for. I’m a rookie to this stock thing.
Thx.

How about also including the subscription called Earnings Drift Alerts (EDA). The phenomenon of post-earnings drift (PED) has been studied academically. You can find such studies by internet search. In general there is an observable phenomenon of unexpected good earnings causing the stock to “drift” higher even after an initial rise after EPS data is released. The opposite is observed from unexpected bad earnings. Anyone find the EDA subscriptions worth the price cost?

I transferred the subscription money from Earnings Drift Alerts to Extreme Fortunes. Chad had some good picks and he really talked those up but for the bad calls which were about as plentiful, he had no mention and I stayed too long. If you develop good trade management rules it could be worthwhile.
I still have projects to oversee and I needed to get out.

If u r asking about the reveal on 9/20/17, people r saying it is PCOM.

Beware that PCOM trading volume is a few tens of thousands shares per day. That is pretty light.

@ Raj…..The True Momentum pick by PM released at 11:00 PM EST on 9/20/17 was NTNX (Nutanix)

PCOM was an EF pick a few weeks ago. Typical EF pick basically illiquid at this point.. Mampilly likes it that way for entry waiting for institutions to take notice. They ultimately drive the price and volume up. He hasn’t hit a home run with the service yet. Meaning it won’t hit a 1000% gain within a year. Not a show stopper for me as I’m in for at least the next 5 years.

Extreme Fortunes has been very successful. I am up more than 30% on at least 6 of the recommendations. Those that pulled back substantially Paul put out sell recommendations on before they became too serious. I have earned back my investment by more than 5 times.

Bill, what would you say would be a decent size starting capital to invest in EF picks? The subscription is $3k so to make it worthwhile, the returns have to be significantly higher than that. I was very unimpressed with the entire EF marketing play and call customer service when trying to learn more. Both phone reps I spoked to, I asked about current YTD portfolio performance. They both said the picks AVERAGED 10% return and not the 1000% they are advertising. They wouldn’t give me any additional information, sample newsletter, or any thing that might help me make a… Read more »

I subscribed to Profits Unlimited (started in Feb 17) and within a month my investment in one of the stocks (MBLY) gained 30%, so I thought Paul could do no wrong. So I spent a LOT more money on True Momentum, back in May 2017. I track Pauls results against the idea of “What would happen if I put the exact same amount of money into IVV (S&P 500 ETF) on the exact same days as when I buy his stock recommendations”. I deploy an average of $6,000 per stock recommendation, and learned my lessson the hard way that when… Read more »

mmatfess, Thanks for your experience. I also have PU and it is doing well. But I am on the trial subscription of the Alpha Stock Alerts ($95 for 3 months). It is not good at all. It is a mechanical system of screening about 1000 large cap stocks and selecting the top 10 based on whatever their “backtested success” formula is. BUT 50% of capital is in a SHORT general market ETF which is losing money. The regular price is $995 of the year, but I’ve already canceled any auto-renewal feature. Since PU generates plenty of picks, I don’t feel… Read more »

One of the best posts ever and I agree with everything you said. I must say, though, its easy to discern who are the the good guys vis-a-vis the bad guys regarding the Banyon Hill characters. Excepting PM, everyone of the others knows little. I was a stockbroker forever and I remember a few of those shills decades ago saying the same things they are saying today. BUY GOLD! In any event, depending on your finances, age, and personal experience, $3,000 is sizable commission money to shell out, i.e. in the digital age. Weighting the picks and experience are necessary… Read more »

can you post an email, or is it against rules? I’d love to chat with you. I have been a profits unlimited investor since January 2017 and I”m thinking of getting in True Momentum or Extreme Fortunes, but I’m concerned about the price.

Great insights on the PU and TM portfolios, thanks much! I am wondering about the volatility of the PU vs. TM portfolios? I have the PU since Sept 1st, and it has done great when the S&P is flat or up but poorly (vs S&P 500) when the S&P is down. How do you think about the volatility of the two portfolios? Has anyone been tracking the performance vs. S&P 500 over a longer period to see how PU and TM do during down days? Thanks.

I “feel” like both newsletters are more for the buy/hold Long horizon holder (1+year) rather than trading on volitility. PU seems less volitile than TM. But I’ve not measured it. Based on the growth of both v s&p though, in the short run they seem quicker to rebound. One of his early stocks in TM (one of the ones I mentioned, tracked from feb, months before the newsletter started) had 0 growth first few months and has taken off over 3 months. (40%). So if you’re an in and out investor, I’m sure this newsletter isn’t for you. Also, it… Read more »

Thanks mmatfess, very helpful! I am a buy/hold investor and wanted to understand if the PU portfolio also beats the S&P500 during down days or down markets. Since I am past 60 yrs old, I want to take prudent risk on my investments and want to have sufficient downside protection. I chose PU because it felt like it would have less volatility vs. the TM, but don’t know if this is true or not. I will stay with PU for now and will look for additional insights from this blog to see if it makes sense to invest another $1995/year… Read more »

There are plenty of stock picks on PU alone. I cannot imagine trying to buy even more recommendations from those pricey subscriptions.

I didn’t want to say anything, but if you are 60 years old and want to take prudent risk, you definitely would want to stay away from Extremes Fortunes. It’s highly volatile and sometimes drops as much as 30% in 1 day. Almost half of Paul’s EF recommendations are losers as of today and some people are losing money like bleeding blood from it. Look at PI and KNDI. I just didn’t want older people like yourself to risk or lose their retirement savings from it! Banyan Hill Publishing will never tell you the real truth. They got no soul.

Moon, FMI and CRCM—picks 1&2–are spectacular. The rest of EF picks from what I know not being a member, have taken a bite out of our wallets. To be fair, I’ve owned Merck for the last 8 years. Look what it just did…. and Merck is likely to get worse. There is no refuge. But given this fact, new issues are surely going to get clobbered after their initial run up. Hence, be careful with ALL EF picks. IMO, the # 1 reason FMI has worked is it is in Phase 2 of its IPO cycle…….and legit, to boot. In… Read more »

Hank, FMI was down 8% the day before due to disappointing quartley earnings, then all of sudden it rebounded more than 20%, what gives? Trading is always unpredictable, despite what people tell you. Of course, Banyan Hill Publishing will tell people about the spectacular gains from 2 stocks, and not the 6 losses. They will try to capitalize on every opportunity they can to squeeze more money out of you. I am sure all Profits Unlimited subscribers got the email asking for immediate renewal cause they are “seriously considering” tripling the price. Speaking of them, JL Yastin is a devious… Read more »

Dotty, I am 87 yrs old a widow, seeking knowledge. Bad move! and True Momentum over charged my Credit card an extra $2000.00 when I called them tonight. The Federal Trade commission should chek this out. I cannot afford to lose their high fees not to mention the deceptive extra $1000.00 NOT APPROVED. I sent 3 emails to the address they gave me to reply and all 3 were return not send able to their web site. I will try to call the Federal authorities that is not right at all.

Dotty,
Call them and ask for refund. They have a toll free phone number. Also, if you keep the subscription, make sure you cancel any “auto renewal” feature which will charge you another subscription when the one you have expires. I advise EVERYBODY to do that.

Hello: You cannot get a result for TM from June 2016, the newsletter started in June (I think) 2017. So my numbers above are the best you’ll get. (21% v 6%).

Thanks much mmatfess. I didn’t realize TM started just a few months ago in May/June 17. When Paul publishes the performance of TM vs. S&P500 in an upcoming newsletter, would you be willing to share the performance numbers? I would like to understand TM performance over at least 6 to 12 months if possible before making a decision to jump in. Thanks!

I got into the TM newsletter on “Opening Day”. May 18th. Here is what I DO NOT LIKE. The active portfolio lists three stocks as having been in the system since February. So I wasnt really excited that the “Portfolio” that began in May showed gains on day 1. However, that kind of backfired because of the 3, one was sold at a 20% loss on his portfolio (I lost 6.5%), One had dipped in May and came back strong lately, so his gain shows 26%, but I got in May for a 46% gain. The last one shows a… Read more »

Hi Mmatfess,
I have a proposition for you. I subscribe to Paul’s Profit Unlimited newsletter as well as Extremes Fortune, but not True Momentum. I am willing to share all 14 of his EF picks with you if you are willing to share all of his TM picks with me. Leave your email address or let me know how to contact you. Let’s help each other out and make it a win-win situation for both parties.
Thanks!

Guys, I guess speaking up does help if you see something that is not right! JL Yastin now finally shows all closed positions (including losses) on his profile and that’s way it should be! Thank you for listening!

Yes, I also recommend PROFITS UNLIMITED. I then invested in “Extreme Fortunes.” The only person making an “extreme fortune” on that one is Mampilly, with the non-refundable entry fee of $3000. Live and learn.

I spent a good bit of time on this one but have not solved it yet. I think that PM caught on that we are playing Robin Hood by solving and posting his picks on Stockgumshoe. He has limited the clues accordingly. My best guess is that it is a regtech firm as regulation is a huge expense, especially for pharmaceutical companies and there are AI solutions. However, I could only find private Calfornia companies that fit. Anyone else want to jump in and help solve this one? You can post here or shoot me an email at mmqc555@gmail.com. Best,… Read more »

Mary you are likely right its regtech! More so, with regtech it’s hard as hell to find public companies as I worked on this one as well.

What a business regulations must be! Indeed, I couldn’t find a single company–a stock symbol–anywhere in the US, much less California.

And don’t forget, on this one, Mampilly already knows we won’t be finding out. He’s wised up.

I am not yet a paid member of stock gumshoe, so when I try to start a new discussion on this topic, I cannot. Maybe, if someone feels like this is good information they can copy/paste into a new discussion. I got an offer for a newsletter from Dent, John Del Vecchio’s Hidden Profits. The advert was well done, though it seemed very similar to ads for Banyon Hill (among others). However, at the end of the ad was a 6 month money back pitch, as well as some “Special Reports” and full access to the portfolio. He has a… Read more »
