Been a subscriber for about 6 months now. I don’t buy the whole portfolio, but use it was a winnoning procoss. Also I use technical analysis for help with market timing. Most of these stocks are pretty volatile, wait for a good dip. Of course since they stocks ARE volatile, you should be making sure to diversfy a bit, and only be investing a reasonable amount of your portfolio. And be prepared for the long hall. Really if just one of these picks turns out to be the next big thing, it will be pay any loosers. Also, I actually… Read More »

I am not submitting a review as I am not a subscriber, not fair to judge what I have no knowledge about. Just wanted to mention that an Agora add for “TECHNOLOGY PROFITS CONFIDENTIAL” arrived today. The lengthly presentation sounded just like the “BTA” letter described by the Gumshoe reviewers. Priced at $49/ year or $89 for two years, I am wondering if this is the economy version of the of “BTA” letter? Once you subscribe will offers of more expensive publications flow into your E-mail?

I have been a reader for nearly two years and think it is the best newsletter I get. Investors need to understand that these are high risk picks but based on what appears to be really good analysis. They are buy and forget shares but I look at them most days and am usually happy. I am top heavy now in my two favourites BioTime and ISCO but believe so strongly in this technology that I will just let them ride. I do believe that Patrick is honest (and he had told us earlier that he was advising ISCO) so… Read More »

FDA only looks at stuff made within the USA and sometimes at stuff formally imported and marketed here. A majority of medicines made offshore cannot be legally sold in the US. The retirees think it is terrible because those medicines sell for a lot less than FDA approved stuff. Chemical analysis shows, however, that the feedstocks of the foreign medications are almost always laced with traces of materials like lead, mercury, poisonous petroleum chemicals, etc. In China, the name of the game is to obtain needed products or feed stocks from outside suppliers. The suppliers provide “substitute” equivalent materials that… Read More »

This report has, for many persons, interesting and perhaps valuable articles. My COMPLAINT is that after reading a complete issue the info was not of value to me. Three times, over 30 days, I have sent messages that I am not satisfied and that I want to cancel for full refund. So far no acknowledgement, no credit card credit, and a new issue has just been received by e-mail (I rejected it without reading it). Potential subscribers should be made aware that cancel and refund appears to be outside their policy and such is not mentioned in their solicitations. BT… Read More »

I have subscribed but chose not to review, despite being offered very low renewal prices. Forget making money on their recommendations, its not going to happen as most of the companies struggle to survive and, if they do get lucky, sell out so that any gain is limited. In my darker moments, I wonder whether this is anything more than a boiler shop operation.

The letter was at times interesting but the service was delivered in a way that made it difficult to follow. This is clearly an investment letter that you need to do a lot of your own research on and monitor positions very closely. The other problem is the customer service – these guys indicate that you selected automatic annual renewal – even though you didn’t – who in their right mind would. Then when you try to cancel – well goodluck – they waste your time with BS.

Yep — “Protected Certificates”, “Secured Investment Contracts”, “Minimum Notes,” “Surety Income Certificates” … they’ve got a good thesaurus over at S&A and have been using similar pitches with different names for this service over the past year or so. I’ve written about this under many of those names, but the marketing seemed to quiet down for this service for a while, I think this is the first time I’ve seen those ads pop up in a few months. Generally Mike Williams, the editor of True Income, seems to go for the junk bonds as opposed to these “low investment grade”… Read More »

I subscribed two years ago. Since then I have bought two picks — BoiTime and International Stem Cell Corp. Both are underwater since I bought them. Although Cox’s analyses are informative, they are over long and over confident. He encourages subscribers to take a long-term view of small companies that may or may not break through. This approach will be familiar to many investors whose fingers have been burned by financial “experts”. The question that investors should put to all such advisors is this: if your picks are so good, why do you still need my subscription money ?

I just dropped BTA after two years. It is very entertaining and educational. Each stock’s story sounds wonderful. Patrick never sells the stocks or puts in a stop loss. I picked the right stocks the first year and made money. But I held on to Patrick’s biggest winner as it was cut in half. Some of the stocks have 90% losses if you held on from the start. Fortunately I never bought those, but I had plenty of others that cost me. The science sounds great, but most of the stocks are down right now.

I don’t know what the fuss is from these “unsatisfied” subscribers, no one gets them all right. The best you can expect is that the winners are big and the losers small I have subscribed for 2 years and am very satisfied. When I was younger I used to finance several small companies like these and you must be patient. Short attacks are no problem if the company is real and develops it’s product. Markets in stocks like this are volatile by nature and in a down period even more so, but they come back quickly as well. Patrick does… Read More »

Terrible track record. Bought this service about two years ago. I bought about twenty of their recommendations and with the exception of one they all turned out to be big losers.

A good deal of money could be made with this newsletter by waiting for the short pop in price after each recommendation and then shorting the stock, using a 50% stop loss. You would have stopped out on Biotime and made money on just about every other recommendation. Patrick Cox seems to pay no attention to the financial condition of the companies he recommends. If they have nifty technology, or seem about to develop nifty technology, he recommends them. There was one semiconductor company he recommended that kept going down, down, down, and Pat couldn’t seem to understand why. Well,… Read More »

Breakthrough Technology Alert: why would anyone send in $2000 and wait to receive a rebate of $1200 from Patrick Cox?

Now hyping anti-aging. Thank goodness for the Stock Gumshoe!

Breakthrough Technology is a boom or bust newsletter that is made of hype and story. And it’s fascinating. Cox says straight out that many of these picks will go to zero, but the ones that don’t will go up hundreds or thousands of percent. His more heavily hyped ones (BTX, STSI, NNVC) haven’t lit the world on fire, at least consistently, but they are still out there with worlds of potential. As well, he hasn’t closed out a stock for a loss, which may be an alarming figure given that some of them are down 90%, and those he has… Read More »
