Let’s start with the bad news this week. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) is a pretty reasonably valued company, valued at about 20X forward earnings now and with a predicted earnings growth rate (by the average analyst) in the 10-15% neighborhood. It’s one of the dominant game publishers in the world, it’s a large company (market cap […]
Chris Wood at RiskHedge is selling one of his higher-end newsletters, Project 5X ($2,497 for the first year, 30-day refund period), by teasing that he will reveal “My #1 Play of the Psychedelic Medicine Revolution”… largely because, like many pundits, he believes that psychedelic drugs might follow the path worn by marijuana over the past […]
Everybody and his brother seems to have a cryptocurrency-focused newsletter these days, which I guess should come as no surprise — investors see the fortunes that have been made by the lucky early bets on Bitcoin or Ethereum or other cryptos, and they want a piece, which creates a huge demand for anything that might […]
This article was originally published on June 29, 2020, when Alexander Green was first touting this as the “#1 Microcap for 2020” — that ad has been repurposed and lightly updated as they pitch the same stock as the “#1 Microcap for 2021,” so we’re re-posting this here to answer reader questions. We have not […]
The Motley Fool’s growth strategy in recent years has been to launch lots of higher-end “portfolio” services in the $1,000-2,000/yr range, usually with some kind of thematic focus… and the menu of offerings is getting a little insane now. When I launched Stock Gumshoe in 2007, the Fool had five or six different paid newsletters… […]
Portfolio service pitched as a higher-end “upgrade” from the Motley Fool and in the family of Everlasting Portfolio services, launched with a dozen recommended growth-focused software as a service (SaaS) stocks in 2021 and and aims to maintain that portfolio with updates and additions.
Happy Friday! We’re coming to you pre-open instead of after the close today, for a little change of pace. I’ve mostly got some relatively optimistic comments to share, including a bunch of small purchases I made as stories shifted a little, so I thought I should start you out with some pessimism from someone else […]
I’ve gotten a bunch of reader questions over the last week or so about Alex Koyfman’s latest teaser pitch for a “Plastic Killer” out of Canada, so that’s where the Thinkolator is pointed today. The ad is for Angel Publishing’s Microcap Insider (currently being sold for $1,999, 90-day refund period), and this is the part […]
Jeff Brown is pitching something he calls a “global token exchange” recently, abbreviating it “G.T.E.”, and reader questions are piling up on the doormat here at Gumshoe Manor, so it’s time to take a look… The basic spiel, which takes the form of a long presentation/interview between Jeff Brown and a hired talking head that […]
We’ve certainly heard a lot of chatter about the NFT craze in recent months, as new non-fungible tokens for artwork and collectibles have set crazy auction prices and created fortunes out of almost nothing… so I thought I’d take a look at the latest teaser pitch we’ve seen to pitch the NFT idea. The ad […]
Two of our companies got some good news on Monday, Brown & Brown (BRO) and Match Group (MTCH) will be joining the S&P 500 index, along with Ceridian (CDAY), replacing Unum Group (UNUM), NOV (NOV) and Perrigo (PRGO), which will be bumped down to the MidCap 400 (I don’t own those other four, to be […]
There’s been a little stirring of interest in real estate among the newsletter crowd again in recent years, most visibly with the launch of the Motley Fool’s Millionacres projects — investors are clearly interested in both publicly traded investments in the real estate space, and in “real world” real estate investments like rental properties (which […]
Real estate-focused advisory from Steve Sjuggerud, recommends the stocks of leading companies that are directly and indirectly benefiting from the growth in the housing market and also recommends direct investments in real estate for accredited investors through the CrowdStreet platform.
This teaser pitch has been around for a while, but I haven’t looked at a Luke Lango teaser ad yet, and he’s been around for a few years now, so it seems time. Lango has been contributing articles and running some services at Investorplace for a few years, but really got more attention when they […]
Monthly entry-level growth newsletter launched in 2021, looks for “ground-floor opportunities in explosive new megatrends.”
This article was originally published on November 20 of last year, but there’s a new push from Shah Gilani for this service, using essentially the identical teaser ad, and I continue to get tons of questions about it… so we’re re-posting it for you today. It has not been updated or revised since it was […]
The hardest thing to do is nothing, and I again failed in that task this week. I added a new position to the Real Money Portfolio earlier this week in Match Group (MTCH), added a new position in a new company to the Lock Box at the close yesterday, and I’ll get to all of […]
I need to warn you, before I begin, that today might not be the most auspicious day for Gumshoeing or investing. I’m no astrology buff, and enjoy poking fun at the astrology-based investment strategies as much as anyone else (yes, they exist), but the outlook for Leo this morning (my astrological sign) caught my eye […]
Trend-focused trading services that says it’s “engineered to focus on the market’s most cutting-edge industries,” aims to recommend both equity and options positions on growth stocks in hot sectors. Carr heads half a dozen trends-focused stock picking services for Oxford Club with slightly different aims.
Today it’s a pitch from Lou Basenese that graces our pages here at Stock Gumshoe… he’s talking up an “iPhone Killer” idea, a notion we’ve certainly heard teased many times. This is how he gets the idea into our heads; “Kill the iPhone, you say? “Few companies have the guts to kill an iconic… admired… […]
