“The Next Hyper Growth Stock”

In honor of the holiday weekend, the Gumshoe is essentially taking a holiday, too. I hope the Americans among you have a great break, if you get one, and that you have a chance to honor the service and memory of so many who have served our country.

But in case you’re looking for some teaser stock action to research, I thought I’d share one with you that has just recently returned to heavy rotation — it’s coming in from several different mailing lists, and many of you have forwarded it to me in the past week.

The ad is still for the Access Group from Marc Lichtenfeld … and it’s still teasing us about the same skin cancer detection stock that it was a few months ago when we first saw it.

The short answer is that the stock is Electro-Optical Sciences (MELA) … and it has done very well in the couple months since we first saw it teased in newsletter ads. At that time it was bouncing around in the $4.5-$5 range, and it’s now close to $8. Certainly one of the stronger performers during that time.

To be fair, it’s still a bit short of the $196 they had as a pie-in-the-sky target, but certainly a nice couple months.
If you’d like to read what I thought about it at the time, and see what your fellow readers commented, you can review that original article here. I still find it hard to get excited about this stock, but I could easily be wrong … and so far, I have been.

Happy reading, and have a great weekend. I’m sure I’ll have some more interesting stocks to write to you about next week.

Hi Stock Gumshoe (or is it Travis)??
I’ve signed up and received confirmation that my subscription was confirmed, but have yet to receive any email that is posted on your site, or what you send to your subscribers. I would also like to post a few comments for the rest of your readers as I get a lot of investment email teasers which I’m sure you and the rest of the Gumshoe group would find more than interesting. I believe you are definitely blessed and have been given a Talent from God! I say this because a lot of the Gumshoe readers (from the comments/posts I read)would be broke. Please keep up the great work you are doing. I do not know if you believe in God, but it does not matter to me as I do believe that you have a God given talent, and are making the best use of it!!
God bless you!!

MELA looked good to me. I am long. I can imagine every Doctor in the world wanting one to check skin cancers WITHOUT having to cut flesh and skin off the patient and send it to a lab. And the little device is 100% accurate I hear. Sounds like a dream come true for us all.

For something with that reputation, it’s awfully range bound, & it’s just reversed again trying to break through. Stocks like this aren’t that affected by a market downturn.

These guys also reco’d ARAY at much higher prices, look at it now! http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ta?s=ARAY&t=2y&l=on&z=m&q=l&p=m50,m200&a=&c=

I like their overall service, the price is right ($49.) but there are much better services when it comes to biotechs & the fringe areas of these types of medical tools.

Aside to Fred: Hang in there Fred, I only got my first pick from Travis this past week, he’s still beta-testing some of his website. He’s worth the wait too!

Drive safely folks.

I’m pulling for this stock, which I originally recommended a few months ago for my wife’s retirement portfolio. She bought in at about $4.50. We’re pulling for it not to get rich, but to see it in her derm’s office the next time she gets a mole check.

On a rainy, stormy pre-memorial Saturday, I glanced at some of your prior researches Travis, CRESY wasn’t the worst by any means, but CROC & SBUX were lu-lus.

The CNBC Fast Money show bounced Cramer’s daily re-run & forced Kudlow to move his show back to 7:00pm. But lately, this foursome & their moderator have been too oft wrong lately. The option guy has an older brother who appears irregularly, HE’s the Man! Karen is supposed t/b the fundamental toughie, yet CROX, SBUX & GS have her looking a bit foolish, & that’s just this year.

Anyway, I can’t wait to lower the boom on James Dines, now there’s a Smug & Snobby SOB if ever there was one.
