This ad about the next way to break through the limitations Moore’s law has sent a few questions our way in the past two weeks, so let’s take a break from watching the short-squeeze train wrecks and look into this fella, shall we? The pitch comes from Jimmy Mengel for his The Crow’s Nest newsletter […]
Everyone seems to love a “micro cap” these days, so the latest teaser pitch from Dylan Jovine over at Behind the Markets for his “upgrade” newsletter caught my eye — it’s called Breakthrough Wealth ($997/yr, 30-day refund policy), and he’s pitching a service that he says will be shooting for 1,000% gains in small companies. […]
“Upgrade” newsletter from Behind the Markets that focuses on trying to identify a small-cap or microcap “1,000% gainer” every month.
The Motley Fool’s Market Pass service offered up a teaser pitch over the weekend about a new stock that is being recommended by Rich Greifner… here’s how the email got everyone excited: “It’s less than 24 hours until the market opens, so I’ll get straight to the most exciting story I’ve ever shared in Investor […]

Bad news… Dream Finders Homes (DFH) did not partner up with Boston Omaha’s Yellowstone Acquisition SPAC (YSAC) to go public, as I had harbored some small hope they might… but good news, too, because DFH did go public this week, which came as a surprise to me on Thursday, since I hadn’t noticed the original […]

Here’s the lead-in from Dave Forest, who’s touting what he says is an 81-cent stock and pitching subscriptions to his International Speculator newsletter over at Casey […]
This article was originally published on November 2, 2020, but the ad we’re covering has been updated with a new headline and some “Biden’s New Plan” lead-ins so we’re re-posting it here to help answer some reader questions — the meat of the ad, the “what you should do” part, seems largely unchanged, and what […]
There’s a new version of Stansberry Venture Value’s big “SaaS” pitch making the rounds recently, similar in many ways to the previous versions that I looked at last February and September… so I guess it’s time to take another look and see if the same stocks are still being teased, and whether we can answer […]
I’ve gotten a lot of questions in the past couple days about Jeff Brown’s “Pre-IPO Code” presentation, in which he teases the idea of this “Pre-IPO” investing strategy as he pitches his new Blank Check Speculator newsletter. And I’ve got good news… and bad news. The good news is, I can explain what he’s talking […]

I don’t know what’s going to happen to interest rates, taxes, GDP growth or the stock market, all of which are intertwined, but right now the sentiment expressed by the market seems still to be vaccine-driven optimism about economic recovery from the pandemic, which implies that the renewed push to speed up vaccinations will lead […]
Yesterday I spent some time on a pitch for a “Diamond in the Rough” stock from Jim Woods and promised to follow up… so that’s the plan this afternoon. The bigger theme of the ad was that Woods has a list of five “Guardian Angel” stocks that will help you survive pandemics and recessions… and […]
This email hit the inbox and caught my eye today, from publisher Roger Michalski for one of the Eagle Financial publications: “Seeing that consumers — the driving force behind our economy — are consuming in record numbers online… “e-Commerce certainly is the place to be. “The profit numbers shown here prove it. “But where is […]
Yesterday it was someone pitching the “No. 1 Income Play of 2021,” today it’s the “No. 1 Tech Stock for 2021” — that’s the nature of January, it’s prediction time and everyone wants to stake their claim on prescience. This one’s from Ian King, who’s pitching his Automatic Fortunes newsletter ($97/yr) and talking up the […]
We’ve covered some teaser pitches from Brett Owens in the past, he has mostly specialized in targeting closed-end funds that he thinks provide good income, at least when it comes to recent pitches I’ve seen. We’ve covered some past ads where he pitched income-focused investments that have worked out reasonably well and some where those […]
Happy New Year! The fact that this week’s portfolio moves included a little stop loss selling and some nibbles in asset management, insurance and music royalties probably tells you all you need to know about how cautious I feel to start this year… though, as always, I try not to have my personal sentiment drive […]
This article was originally published on June 29, 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 updated […]
This update was posted on November 24, we’re re-sharing it here because of a huge number of new reader questions.
