Crazy week, eh? I guess it’s telling that it was really only the most boring positions that stayed in the green during Thursday’s tough sledding. In my portfolio the only little signs of green that day were Five Point Holdings (FPH), which is basically a land bank, Kennedy-Wilson (KW), which is a real estate asset […]
The latest pitch from Cannabis Venture Syndicate is actually dated January 2021, but I haven’t gotten around to covering it yet… and questions keep rolling in, and it’s for a private share offering so the price wouldn’t have changed in the interim, so things ought to still be relatively “fresh” on that front. And today, […]
This is not a new idea, and in fact we’ve looked at it pretty recently as it’s been pitched by other pundits, too… but Dan Ferris is out with a new promo for his Extreme Value newsletter that re-touts the idea he’s often touted as his #1 favorite investment for a few years now, and […]
The Motley Fool has really been ramping up their weekly “Investor Digest” ads that focus on pitching their higher-end portfolio services, and we’ve covered several of those in the past few weeks… but lots of readers keep asking, so we’ll throw another one on the pile today. What’s this “Small-cap 5G stock” they’re pitching? Ahh…. […]
High-end portfolio service from the Motley Fool, recommends an allocated portfolio of stocks around a theme (mostly “5G” in this case), and provides commentary and updates on those stocks, regular rebalancing/reranking of the portfolio, and occasional additions of new stocks.
I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about Teeka Tiwari’s “Trump Tower” teaser pitch recently, so although the ad is actually very old now (it’s still got a January 29, 2020 date under the signature) I thought I’d re-share our solution. It is still circulating heavily, and it’s an ad for Palm Beach’s “entry level” newsletter […]
We got lots of questions over the weekend about the latest Microcap Insider teaser pitch, so that’s how your friendly neighborhood Gumshie is starting his week… Alex Koyfman’s ad about the “oil killer” starts out like so… “A Little-Known Fuel Is Set to Revolutionize the Energy Sector in the Coming Years — This has NOTHING […]
Finally we get a kind of almost bad week! Nasdaq 100 down 1%! Remember your stop losses if you use them, remember your plan for how to handle risk and your promise to yourself to have some discipline, and remember that when everything falls at once, that’s when you get to buy the things you […]
Things have been a little slow here as your favorite Gumshoe puts in some sweat equity for our kitchen renovation project this holiday week, so please accept my apologies for not having written for a couple days. But I’m not completely drowning in dust, so I thought I’d take a moment to get a teaser […]
I’ve been falling behind on my Annual Review summations, so we’ll try to get to a bunch of them today for you… starting with what has usually been the largest holding in my portfolio over the past 15 years… Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B) — I still consider Berkshire to be an attractive buy at 1.3X book […]
The lead-in to the latest pitch from Andy Snyder touches on a few “hotter than hot” themes — so it’s no surprise that several folks have been asking about it recently. The ad is dated January 2021, and it promises both a next-wave telecom opportunity in 6G, and a hot exposure to Space, which is […]
The Motley Fool in recent weeks has been ramping up their teaser pitches on the weekend over the past few weeks, sending quite a few questions our way — most of these have been pitches for their higher-end portfolio services like the various Extreme Opportunities services, and that’s also what has caught our eye this […]
One of the Motley Fool’s high-end “themed portfolio” services, similar to Extreme Opportunites: Augmented Reality or Trend Spotter, it picks a portfolio of names in the entertainment space and starts with a full portfolio, adding new names as they find them and re-ranking the stocks occasionally.
I got a question from several readers about this fairly quiet pitch from Eric Fry over the weekend, and it rang a little bell so I thought it was worth a little check-in… this is what Fry says about the business of asset management… “‘Gather assets under management… and bill them.’ That’s how a money […]
Website says that this “aggressive” service “uses Eric Fry’s proprietary ‘Green Light System’ to spot global megatrends, just as they begin to unfold — and cash in with LEAPS options, small-cap stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities….”
It’s been a phenomenal couple years for the Real Money Portfolio, but I should also note that this has been to some degree a “monkeys throwing darts” kind of market — as long as you did more buying than selling over the past couple years, and as long as you kept your exposure to some […]
I haven’t looked at a teaser pitch from Frank Curzio in a long time, and I’ve actually mostly lost interest in his podcast over the past few months, too, though I’ve enjoyed that for years (I think that was probably mostly because the rants kicked up a notch with the election silly season, so I’m […]
Another electric vehicle teaser ad for our consideration today… Extreme Disruptions Trader ($1.495/yr “charter price”, no refunds) from David Fessler at the Oxford Club seems to be a new letter getting launched this month and he says in the ad that it will follow strategies for buying past early disruptors like Roku (ROKU), DocuSign (DOCU), […]
New higher-cost weekly trading advisory from David Fessler in 2021, says he will recommend smaller and disruptive companies, and also make options trading recommendations to leverage those bets.
Nick Hodge and Gerardo del Real did not disappear for long when their newsletters stopped being published by the Outside Club… they’re back with new letters from a publisher they’re now calling Daily Profit, including Gerardo del Real’s Junior Resource Monthly (currently “on sale” for $99, this is effectively a restart of the Junior Mining […]
