Is it safe yet to get back into TPL (Texas Pacific Land Trust)? (A question for those interested in royalties and could use a break from 5G, AI and IoT stocks.)

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 […]

On "Immortality Switch" -- What's Kramer's "$6 Anti-Aging Stock?"
Do these anti-aging drugs and therapeutics include reversal of incontinence? What for the promises of a wrinkle-free, straight-walking, high-energy centenarian-plus existence if the internal plumbing won’t be working right? And do those billionaires a[...]
On "Immortality Switch" -- What's Kramer's "$6 Anti-Aging Stock?"
Travis, in relation to your personal investing rule "I don’t like to dabble in early stage biotechs”, could you clarify what you consider as “early stage”? As a biotech ignoramus, I'm not sure how many phases drug development goes through and if FD[...]
On Microblog: Best newsletter at teasing
Short answer: there is no “best” newsletter based on teases sleuthed on this site. As you stick around long enough and read through Travis’ analyses, you will realize that, more often than not, the teased stocks are pure hype written to lure unsus[...]
On Microblog: what is george gilder's moonshot stock using AI and crypto blockchain security?
@nw7us-tomas, The long term, overall picture of Gilder's stock teases as a group has changed (I think) with the announcement that centenarian KEMET is in the process of being acquired by Taiwanese company Yageo Corp for $27.20 per share. Chart-wise, the p[...]
On Microblog: Kemet Electronics (KEM)
KEM was one of the companies teased by George Gilder last summer. It may not have been his moonshot pick, but it certainly performed well soon after the summit and, arguably, the best of the stocks teased. I almost feel bad that this centenarian (yup, fo[...]
On Matt McCall's "300X Your Money" on Chinese Biotech Pitch
In what appears to be perfect timing for this pitch, the news on FDA accelerated approval for BGNE's drug "Brukinsa" (for the treatment of certain adult patients with lymphoma) broke out during the extended trading session today, 11/14. Trading had to be h[...]
On Four (or Five) Stocks for the "World's Best Business"
Sounds like you bought before Nov 1st, when KNSL reported Earnings for the most recent quarter. By just looking at the chart, I'm assuming the report was really bad for the stock to plunge like that.[...]
On Four (or Five) Stocks for the "World's Best Business"
Thanks, Travis. For those that want to diversify or balance a portfolio a little better, I thought it might pay to seriously look into one of the most (if not THE most) boring yet stable industries out there. Does the property & insurance niche hold up fa[...]

On Microblog: Is Nokia a buy on the huge dip
Travis, this reader's post preceded the announcement on 11/6/19 of a renewed alliance between NOK & MSFT. I'm wondering if this alliance impacts in any way your above (latest) assessment of NOK or if the news is mere trivia.[...]
On Microblog: Gold to shoot to $10,000 US an ounce!!....says Richard. ...
Re #1: This is a recurring ad with a deadline to join Rickard's newsletter constantly being updated. Re #2: What it would take for gold to reach $10K per ounce and the improbability of this happening is addressed (and only a portion of a much larger pict[...]
On Microblog: Nokia / Microsoft Renewed alliance - thoughts?
Boy did NOK hit rock bottom, literally. It plunged to $3.50 on October 29th. The last time NOK was at this level was in 2012! The general consensus on this site seems to be that the problem is with management, not business fundamentals. Has anyone else [...]
Actually, I had already read Louis Navellier's recommendation piece (not a teaser ad) for this stock sometime in mid-October. In it, he quoted Bloomberg's assessment of BAH as the "world's most profitable spy organization". That the stock had a stellar Ea[...]
Just received Ian Cooper's ad (10 months after this post) and am surprised that this reader's post fell through the cracks unanswered. In fairness, the descriptions for Disruptor Superstocks #1 & #3 (The 5G Innovator and The Microcontoller Masters, respect[...]
On What's the "Single-Stock Retirement Plan?" Crowdability teases that "Starting Jan. 7th, This Tiny $3 Stock Could Ignite a $20 Trillion Bull Market..."
Nah, I’ll pass on ATOM and already own INSG which I suspect I’ll be dropping soon due to high volatility. Perhaps I’ve reached my maximum tolerance for hyperbole for the 5G and IoT stocks under $10 which tout unimaginable riches to come plus a secu[...]

On Microblog: Dan Ferris - Post FAANG strategies The Unwind
As I eagerly await the Thinkolator’s revelation of the 3 stocks Dan Ferris is teasing, I'm guessing (for my own amusement) that he’s looking in the direction of the Gold, Oil &Energy and Financial sectors. I don’t know of a particular economic, glob[...]
On Can you Really "Tap Into" the "Social Security 'Catastrophe Plan?'"
I’m hoping you didn’t buy or intend to buy all the above assets around the same timeframe. Do keep in mind that the current price of an individual stock reflects at least one (if not all) of the following : Fundamentals, News (e.g. headlines, public [...]
