When the Chinese market crashed a few years ago, I recall that their government banned short-selling to the point of jail time as punishment. Fast forward to this weekend, I’m reading that certain countries (South Korea, the UK, Italy, Spain, maybe more to come) have already instituted the ban on short-selling, inverse ETFs and similar […]

In the webinar EXPLOSIVE PROFITS SUMMIT which aired on 2/5/2020, E.B. Tucker encourages investing in the asset known as “Omega Shares” which is different from traditional investments like stocks, bonds, ETFs, Options, etc. (It’s also different from the “Q” shares or DRIPs recently covered by Travis.) Actuallly, “Omega” is a financial ratio computation but Tucker […]

TPL used to be THE bright spot in the rather depressed or volatile Energy Sector. All came crashing down when the bitter feud between its trustees escalated to a blitzkrieg of derogatory remarks mailed to shareholders by both sides around proxy voting time. Due to my tiny position in the stock, I ignored the noise […]

While waiting for Travis' response, you can get a head start by typing Gilder's name in the Search Bar. It should take you to an active thread on the Internet Reboot webinar that first aired sometime in the summer of 2019. My recollection is that Gumshoer[...]

On Friday File: Rethinking Coronavirus Impact for my Portfolio Companies (and adding a few)

Yes, kudos to grocery staff for keeping up with demand while behaving responsibly in limiting the number of people in their stores at any given time. An even higher commendation goes to medical staff directly in contact with patients suffering from the di[...]

On Microblog: Market in Turmoil: Is it better to Invest in ETF's like Vanguard Information Technology (VGT) and Invesco QQQ (QQQ)

** IF ** the people at Stansberry Research are to be believed, they warn that the decline in the broad market has just begun and still has a long way to go, so be cautious with jumping into stocks to take advantage of the dips. Eventually, they say that[...]

On Cabot's "Apple of Cannabis"

I see a correlation problem here. My understanding is that bitcoin (whether the brand name with uppercase “B” or the generic term for cryptocurrencies with a lowercase “b”) has to run on a blockchain platform – much like a train needs to run on r[...]

On Wyatt's picks for "Coronavirus Biotech Boom?"

Yup, it's a horse race. I looked at a dozen of them today (3/17) and they all ran in full form during regular trading hours. However, in the extended trading session, most of them are down by varying percentages. Only three are up in after-hours trading:[...]

On Wyatt's picks for "Coronavirus Biotech Boom?"

Yes, but not in the Top 10; more like somewhere in the Top 20 with only 1.0% asset allocation in the ETF.[...]

On Microblog: What ate your thoughts on longer term stocks i put out my money from my 40-k

Travis, I would gladly read your line of thought in its entirety but your system continues to truncate longer responses. Yes, even yours. Others have pointed this out as well in the last couple of days. Any estimate on when the situation will be fixed?[...]

On Coronavirus Update – February 2020

cmilone, Unfortunately and as my interest was just starting to peak, your missive got truncated. Is there a way you can continue your narrative, maybe by breaking it up into a few lines at a time until the Gumshoe system is fixed?[...]

On Microblog: Website in Chrome Browser

I experienced the same issues for a couple of days -- i.e. the Stock Gumshoe Banner, Section Headings, etc. all askew and topsy-turvy -- but that part seems okay now. What's driving me nuts is the continued truncation of missives, including responses by Tr[...]

On Friday File: Panic in the time of Purell

I’m not a Trade Stops subscriber but as people share their thoughts during this panicky, volatile time, I get the impression that the Stop Loss thresholds recommended by Trade Stops are too high (and rather painful) for my tolerance level, especially for[...]

On Microblog: Fundrise

Thanks for bringing up the lack of immediate liquidity and possibility of frozen redemptions which seem similar to investing in mutual funds in an IRA/401k account. Somehow I missed the part about automatic monthly deductions from a checking account whil[...]

On What's this "Dark Burst" Business from Michael Robinson?

It's up by around 10% in extended trading as I write this due to a "trifecta" beat, the most important component being the upside in outlook for the next quarter beating analysts' estimates.[...]

On Navellier's "This unique turbo booster is the hidden SPARK PLUG that will spark the 5G revolution...."

Re #5: My educated guess is that McCall is referring to biotech stock ICAD Inc. (ICAD). I recall a recent article wherein he said that this company incorporates Artificial Intelligence into its cancer treatments. ICAD was an $8-ish stock until last we[...]

On Navellier's "This unique turbo booster is the hidden SPARK PLUG that will spark the 5G revolution...."

Navellier is teasing KEYS for his ads to would-be subscribers but his Portfolio Grader free website as of 2/14/20 rates the stock as follows: Fundamental = B, Quantitative (i.e. momentum) = C, Overall Grade = C (Hold). Shouldn't there be an "A" somewhere [...]

On Microblog: any thoughts on stansberry 2020 market melt up?
