Bill Bonner? Isn’t he the pipe smoking intellectual along with the surf boarding Stansberry who have been predicting the end of the financial world with their mentor(?) Doug Crazy. Still have some of the “5000” dollar gold they were hustling back in 1981:-) Understand Bill from one of his touts is a successful business man with a few hundred lines of business (doom and gloom newsletters?)–Hormegeddon??:-)). Bonners going to start investing in stocks after “predicting” the last 8 crashes in a row:-)). Must be getting near some sort of major top:-((((

Hey! I’m thinking of buying a castle also. However, I earned my the hard way-swing trading- versus “financial journalism,” scaring the pants off 2.5 million little guys. My friends have subscribed for years and convinced me to subscribe to this horse shit recently since I used to get scary input from them. Heck! if they had not scared me with the 49 dollar muck racking fear, I might have been able to buy two castles:-)))
Now it looks like their target is the frightened retiree who might have a few thousand bucks to whet is whistle with the inside insights of Chris Mayer.

Have to admit Sjuggarud is pretty good with his extreme value approach of assets that are extremely disliked. I’ve had some extremely good swings Steve put me onto via his newsletter which I believe comes from Stansberry publishers; understand they are surfing buddies??? . Talked to him a few years ago at a currency conference, smart straight up guy. Doug Crazy dropped by after just trashing the good old USA; so, as a loyal modern day “Praetorian” I verbally flipped him off to his exasperating surprise. A very royal f-you:-)
One of his groupies tried to pick a fight with me over my disrespect for the “great” Doug Crazy. He changed his tune when I gladly put down my tray to give him the first shot before knocking some sense into his skull.
Not that I want to be violent but deep down my subconscious Jack Reacher just hates the bullshit artists and their groupies:–))).

I like Chris’s common sense approach and level headedness. The analyses are in-depth, and his recommendations so far have played out as anticipated. This is a newsletter I expect to continue a subscription for a long while.

I have not bought Focus. but I did subscribe to his letter before Bonner bought him and charged 2 grand for the privilege of reading Focus. But the reason I am writing this is to say he had a great track record with his past letter, and I actually invested in a couple of his recommendations. Bonner ran a couple of investment letters in years gone by and then came out of retirement I think because of the potential he saw in Mayer. The 100 bagger has been his philosophy for quite a while with some success but I don’t know if he has carried his success over to Bonner’s letter. It was tempting for me to subscribe to Focus until I saw the price. I hope this helps someone. I agree with Travis, that the co. they are promoting doesn’t seem to have much of a moat or competitive advantage. I will say that part of Mayer’s’ strategy is wrapped up in the management’s experience in growing co.’s.

Years ago I subscribed to one of Chris Mayers newsletters. several of his recommendations made me some money, but some lost out badly in 2008, and have never recovered. One, in particular, dropped so far, so fast, that it would cost me almost as much to pay the commission as I would receive from selling it – still down over 94% – so I keep it as a reminder – Needless to say, I pay no attention to anything he has to offer ! ( At the time, I was a novice, and didn’t have stop -losses set where I should have. Fortunately, I had enough sense to know that selling after the crash would only ” lock in ” my losses, and most of my investments, which were mostly in mutual funds, have not only recovered, but grown to be worth more than before the crash.
