written by reader Harry Dent group dissolving…readers handed off to Banyan Hill

By sylviaw37, April 2, 2020

Does anyone know why Harry Dent sold Dent Research? Maybe he was just done with it?
I was a lifetime member, and I liked some of their analysts.
Now I’m handed off to Paul Mampilly and Banyan Hill. Is there anybody worth listening to at Banyan Hill? I’m not excited about digging through all their stuff.

I was a Network member with Dent. Now apparently I’m Banyan Hill’s equivalent of that. I had grown disillusioned with the Dent team: they seemed to 1) talk without detail, or 2)talk with so much detail that the point was hard to ascertain. Some of their analysts simply said buy or sell this or that, without any supporting data. Some talked ad naseum, and a few of them did credible jobs. And there were way too many spelling errors for such a supposedly knowledgeable organization. I finally got to the point where I ignored most of their newsletters and instead gave my time to the very fine folks at Stansberry Research.

Now I’ll have to see if Banyan Hill’s massive offerings are any better. I’m with Sylvia: don’t really want to spend yet more time digging through all their stuff.

My big question is what’s happened to all of the Dent analysts? Nothing from Dent, and nothing from BH about their fate. Did they just get cut loose, released to another company, or what?

I liked Harry Dent’s “big picture” forecast of where our economy and markets are headed. In his last video “rant” before he sold to Banyan Hill he argued that we are entering what will be the “Greatest Depression” in history. He feels that the Dow will eventually crash to between 800 and 1,200 by the end of 2022. A forecast similar to Bob Prechter’s of Elliott Wave International. I agree with their overall forecasts. Gerald Celente (“TRENDS JOURNAL”) and many others are also saying that we have entered a depression. In Banyan Hill’s transition material they wish Harry and his main associate good luck in their next “chapter”. Now I will be getting “THE BAUMANN LETTER” (which I used to get) instead of “BOOM & BUST”. They have some good material, but are not on the same page as Dent, Prechter, Celente, Egon von Greyerz, and so many others are on regarding our collapsing economy. I would like to keep following Dent’s perspectives. No mention in Banyan’s material about that. I’m not comfortable with their multiple newsletter services hyping the “status quo”. Our crashing markets and evolving depression has nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans, or COV-19– which was merely the proverbial “pin” to prick the largest bubble in history. The 2008 bail-outs were for Wall Street, NOT Main Street. Now they are bailing Wall Street out again and throwing us peanuts, as always. Anyway, if anyone has some insight into what is going on now with Dent I’m sure that many of us would appreciate such information. Thank you.

I’m with you all. I was a Dent Network sub for a few years mostly for the insights of Harry. I’ve been reading his material for years and really use his insight to play my own long term plans. I’m really disappointed that we have been summarily handed off to some other second rate group for which we didn’t pay to become lifetime members. I’m going to track whatever the next chapter is for Dent. No matter the quality of Banyan… I didn’t pay for that… I paid for Dent.

I concur. I didn’t pay much attention to the emails the last few days as the Covid thing has totally shut my business down and, subsequently, has been holding my attention. When I finally caught up and noticed that I have been whisked off to Banyan Hill, I was shocked and disappointed and betrayed.

I had a lifetime Network contract with Dent Research…not Banyan Hill and I feel betrayed, actually by both sides of the transition. I paid for Harry’s insights and Lance and Adams recommendations and I am not impressed with the offer to have Adam’s recommendations continue “free for a year”…I paid a large amount for LIFETIME service. I do not want to repurchase the service from Harry’s new group (I have already paid them)and I don’t really have any interest in the Banyan Hill service. They have never impressed me with their services in the past.

Could this lead to a class action to have our funds returned?

Does it not seem irresponsible to make this change during the larger national crisis? Talk about flying under the radar…
