Option Rocket

This ”service” from Raging Bull deserves its own review. Awful! Horrible! Avoid! Right now, the portfolio consists of 6 options. Two are worthless. The portfolio itself is down 32%. I have no idea how Kyle Dennis’s picks are so consistently bad. He’s part of the Raging Bull marketing series so they have the marketing down […]

HIMAX

I have to start out by saying that I think these Gumshoe articles are great, & I don’t like putting people on the spot ( or people doing that to me), but I have a question to ask partly out of genuine curiosity, partly out of concern for my stock. Don’t take it as a […]

What could the Reboot of the Dollar by Trump possibly involve? Rickards has been plugging this pitch for the past few years

and claims to have placed 1,000,000 of his own money to benefit from this Reboot. What could he possibly be investing in? He claimed that Trump did it himself in the 80’s turning every 500,000 into millions, I wonder what that was about.

That sounds like gold, Trump often brags about his success in speculating on gold 30 years ago. Rickards has…

“THE MOST DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION WE’VE SEEN IN 45 YEARS!” What started as an “off the radar” technology… is now backed by President Trump’s latest executive order. Early investors have the chance to make a fortune as its growth skyrockets 200,000%. “[This technology] is of paramount importance to maintaining the economic and national security of the […]

Notes from the Boston Omaha Annual Meeting

I don’t usually make a point of meeting or interviewing executives, mostly because I don’t want to be swayed by personal impressions of people who probably wouldn’t be in their position unless they were personable and appealing… but when you’re really dealing with a “bet the jockey” stock like Boston Omaha (BOMN), it is important […]

Friday File: Pot Dividend Surges, plus thoughts on gold and “bargains”

There’s no more cyclical stock than a semiconductor stock, and we’re seeing the whipsaw slash through that market now as trade sentiment weakens and pundits begin to see some weakness in the economy, particularly in the employment numbers, and the Federal Reserve fuels that uncertainty by essentially promising a rate cut in their attempt to […]

Frank Curzio shot with “Batman”/”Air Cuff” Device to tease a Stock — which one?

I’ll let you know up front that this is not a particularly “secret” stock reveal today — yes, Frank Curzio is hinting at a stock to promote his entry-level newsletter (Curzio Research Opportunities, currently $49), but you could find this stock on your own. Anyone could, that’s the nature of a unique product. But I’ve […]

Why We Take the Bait

One would think that it would take a person of normal intelligence about half a minute to conclude that lures such as the ones below could not possibly be on the up and up.   Here’s one.  It starts out with a note from Christine O’Brien. “The Sovereign Investor Daily A brand new, ‘Alzheimer’s vaccine’ […]

Motley Fool’s “Dawn of the T288 Era” — What are those Secret AR Stocks hinted at by Eric Bleeker?

Eric Bleeker at the Motley Fool came out with a big “presentation” recently where he walked around the stage pitching a new high-end project that they’re calling Extreme Opportunities: AR — a $999 no refunds one-year subscription to their thinking about augmented reality, starting with a 15-stock model portfolio and including whatever changes or updates […]

Bill Gates invests $650 million in “under-the-radar company” — who is it?

We’ve got a lot of choices when it comes to teaser pitches this week, including some ratcheted-up reruns from Dr. Kent Moors reiterating his older Permian Basin and Solar Energy pitches, some CBD stocks, and a few others that are generating attention… but the one that caught my eye was from a smaller publisher, Motley […]
