Tax-Free Oil Wealth

Travis, is a request about an opinion re. ”Tax-Free Oil Wealth: The Perfect Retirement Plan” currently being pitched by Brian Hicks at Wealth Daily. He makes this thing sound like a phenomenal investment, tax free, that will make you incredibly wealthy. This reminds me of that old adage ”if it sounds to good to be […]

On 2019 Turkey of the Year
I love these discussions about "turkey" stocks. It makes me feel better when I look back at the bonehead decisions I've made over the course of the last year. Happy Thanksgiving Travis and to all the SG'ers! Regards, Frank[...]
On Friday File: Buying Risky Retail, Checking up on REITs
Good article Travis. I especially liked the following; "They are almost the perfect examples of talking to investors like they are idiots, which probably works most of the time." from the Softbank slides. I have looked at puts on TSLA a number of times[...]
On Friday File: Earningspalooza Overload -- Two Sells, Four Buys and a dozen updates
Thank you Travis for the "current blatheration". IRM looks to be a little farther from the edge if I'm reading their statistics correctly. Their debt to equity ratio appears to be fairly high at 661.94% (per Yahoo Finance). Is that due to their cape[...]
On Will Yastine's teased "Hypernet" bring riches as it makes the Internet obsolete?
I followed the same approach as Travis, bailing on the stock but holding the calls even though they are basically worthless. Looking at virtually any indicator you prefer, this chart looks badly broken. Regards, Frank[...]

On Friday File: Earnings Season in Full Swing
Good article Travis. 1 question, do you know what the symbol is for Azure, mentioned above in your comments re. AMZN? Regards, Frank[...]
On Two Stocks for King's "Spectrum" -- Is this the "Future of All Technology?"
wino1943, if you are referring to Travis, your comment about "a loyal following of satisfied customers", is right on the money. I smile every time I renew my annual subscription because I've never found a better use for my $49 or $59 or whatever it is, an[...]
On Friday File: My "Top Ten," plus Some Adventures in Shorting and A Check-in on Gold Royalties
Great article Travis. I learned years ago that put options were a lot safer to buy than attempting to short the stock. The most one can lose with puts is the cost of the contract while one can virtually lose their first born with a run away short. Furth[...]
On Microblog: GOLD, SILVER, COPPER, AND HARD ASSETS…2019
Good to hear from you hn. That is an interesting postulate re. the agreement on the rates between gold,USD and the yuan. I hadn't really thought about it before, but it seems that would have to be fundamental to a trade agreement between the US and Chin[...]

Travis, I'm not sure if you've covered this topic before or not but what is Jason Williams referring to when he talks about "sticking it to AMZN?" Regards, Frank[...]
On Friday File: China, Data Center and 5G Shakeup... plus a couple boring buys
Great post Travis. As a former HP employee I accumulated shares of A and ultimately KEYS. I never thought of their association with 5G before, but I can certainly see the connection now. Regards, Frank[...]
On A Cube, a Metal Pole, and an "Absolute Killing"
tanglewood, you may be totally right but $QCOM SP jumped 60%+ in 2 days and the calls I had went up 1,500% so I took profits on 80% of the one's I owned and kept 20% of them . I'd rather take significant profits than be greedy, if you know what I mean, [...]
On A Cube, a Metal Pole, and an "Absolute Killing"
The patent settlement was very favorable for QCOM calls and I unloaded most of mine yesterday. I thought it was interesting that a number of analysts said this event was negative for INTC, however INTC stock spiked almost $2 on the news. I talked to 3 fo[...]
On Friday File: IIPR Dividend Hike, Boeing Panic, OKTA, DOCU and more...
Good article Travis. A couple questions re. IIPR. I sold prematurely when they announced their last round of financing and have a standing order in at $56. Unfortunately, they haven't seen that level since the announcement. -Various authorities have b[...]
On Friday File: Cabot's "Insurance Disruptor," plus some updated thoughts on IIPR, KW and TDOC
Travis, very informative article. Unfortunately, I sold my IIPR on the day they announced the debt offering. It was indeed a very profitable transaction and most of the credit is yours. I'll be very interested in your comments within the next couple wee[...]
On Annual Review Part 3: Commodities and Real Estate (mostly)
Thanks for this review Travis. I'm long several of these stocks as well. The metals stocks have been a disappointment for some time. However the REITs; MPW and IIPR have been quite successful and you certainly deserve accolades for them and I thank you [...]
On Friday File: Thoughts on Gold and Commodities (and a few Real Money Portfolio updates)
Travis, PHUN trading is totally insane! It opened at $228 today ($8 above yesterday's close), hit $550 for a high and is now trading at $87.10, down $132.90 for the day. This reminds me of the IPO's in the pre dot.bomb days, all on 25K volume! Regards, F[...]
