One of the few letters I subscribe to is Disruption Investor, authored by Stephen McBride for Risk Hedge. A few months ago the company put McBride and another Risk Hedge writer, Justin Spittler, to launch Disruption Trader. This has been a bomb. The first stock promoted was Ballard Power. They wanted a two year sub. I said no. One year and if I cannot get one good recommendation in that time why would i want a second year. Well, they came out with Ballard Power. It looked to me that Ballard probably paid for the pitch. Recently they launched a big pitch for a a big fee for a life time subscription for another new letter, with Chris Riley, also from from Risk Hedge, to tout a new letter in Edge Computing. Edge computing is a new buzzword for growth. I assume it makes 5G work for cars- 60,000 sensors going out per second to make cars meet new demands for driverless. i.e. what happens if a child, a dog or whatever, falls in front of a car – bingo – Edge computing handles it directly – no path to and from a cloud. So, the question is, what are these three guys now doing to grab more dollars for Olivier Garret and the crew at Risk Hedge. I still like McBride but when they start marketing life time subscriptions one knows that it is nothing more than a cash grab. Paying a few thousand for a lifetime sub on a new pub with no history or recommendation? – Bye, Bye, Risk Hedge.
