This was the first of the many spin-offs from the original International Speculator. As with most other Casey publications, the focus is on obscure (to the average investor) penny stocks. Most of these trade on the Vancouver or Toronto exchanges.

When I subscribed, they were heavily into Canadian oil sands and uranium.

Some of the picks did well for a while, but their sell signals were almost always too late. It was interesting that their uranium picks peaked right around the time of their energy summit in 2007. They crashed from there and never recovered.

I let my subscription lapse quite a while ago, so I don’t know about their recent performance. Casey’s strength is in following the junior gold explorers. Many of his long time subscribers were disappointed with this venture into an area where he doesn’t have as much expertise. It seems to mainly be written by people other than Doug Casey himself.

I subscribed to Casey’s “Investing in Crisis” back in the late ’70’s. Casey (though this is not written by him his touch is clearly there) is a true gold bug but he does well in other areas also, thus my subscription to Energy Opportunities.

Looking back a year he correctly predicted the economic crisis literally as it was unfolding, starting in late 2007. Though most of his energy picks were slammed in ’08 (as were everyone else’s) he performs best in a crisis and if you had cash left and followed advice starting in about September well… my portfolio of his energy picks was up at the end of ’08 about 54%. I was lucky to have cash in hand and I do best in a falling market so this market felt comfortable to me. A few recommendations that I followed turned quick double and triples. Following his advice to sell a % after a big gain, some of these triples, half sold, were invested in other companies, two of which as I write this are up 127% and 88%.

The editor’s research is impeccable. I think that my only complaint is the occasional “sorry you lost in the crash, but look….” Big crash, tough cookie–swallow it and move on. I recently subscribed to some of Casey’s other publications. Big Gold is just not for me, I’m not that conservative, so I canceled. I was instantly and correctly credited for unused months.

His outlook is not doing lots of trades but finding value (often value not so easily seen) and waiting for the market to see it. I subscribe to the International Investor (?) the junior version of “Big Gold,” and enjoy it. I do miss the now almost 30 year old “Investing in Crisis” as it had it all, now one must subscribe to at least three or four publications.

Thumbs up, especially (today is Feb 19, ’09)in today’s energy market. While gold has long since started a boring uphill trend (and is absent crashed and smashed super deals with more cash in the bank than the shares cost) energy has yet to do much of anything. Well, last I saw, energy has not dropped 80-95% in my usage, so in time, the companies that survive have the potential to shoot to the moon.

I was a Casey Energy subscriber for only two months before canceling. I wrote a personal note to the editor explaining that I quit because the stock picks were well run up by the time the letter arrived. I observed that the run up was about a week in advance–almost as if insiders got the newsletter days ahead of me. He wrote back saying he’d look into my complaint. I continue to subscribe to the Casey Report and International Speculator.

Had subscribed to Casey’s Energy Speculator, very disappoionted. I could have compiled a list of 1000 energy explorer companies and selected 15 – 20 while blindfolded and done as well if not better. Casey himself is very knowledgable in the gold/silver arena. His International speculator does a good job on picking explorers to speculate on. I stress “speculate” which means some are winners and some are loosers. The winners generally over power the loosers so you should end up quite a bit ahead of the game. Like so many of the stock recommending news letters,they do OK with one publication and then get greedy by going for more news letters recommending stocks in areas they are not really qualified to recommend. One of the energy stocks he’s pushed hard is Nevada Geothermal. I’m still 10-15 % under what I paid for it on the recommendation of the Energy Speculator, about two years ago. As far as Magna is concerned, it may go up, but from what I can see the only thing really good going for it is the name of the man behind the driving force of the company.

Affordable price, good picks…but you don’t get very much for your money… A more expanded portfolio would be nice…
