“This Chinese Smartphone Stock Is Poised To Soar”

Our first look at a China Stock Insider teaser

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, November 26, 2012

The folks at Hyperion Financial have a new China-focused newsletter that they’re promoting pretty actively now, which is certainly at least a little bit of a “contrarian” move — most of the China-focused newsletters have been pretty quiet lately, not having too much to brag about, and a few have even shut down entirely (notably Robert Hsu’s China Strategy and Asia Edge, which were early sellers of the heavily hyped China investment story, claiming tens of thousands of subscribers, but have now gone by the wayside).

This particular letter, China Stock Insider, is being helmed by Robert Morris. I don’t know if it has any track record at all, this is the first I’ve seen it advertised — they do have a “sample recommendation” on their website which would have had you buying RDA Microelectronics (RDA) just about a year ago, and if you had done so and held on through some ups and downs you’d be right back where you started, so we can’t read too much into that idea. I don’t even know if that was a real recommendation to subscribers, it’s just called a “sample.”
