I live in Perth (Western Australia) and enjoy reading this publication. Some of the pics have been OK. Others have been total and utter disasters!! Like for example a SCREAMING BUY recommendation when McArthur Coal slipped down to around 17.00. Having been previously around 20.00, one got sucked in and bought some more. What are they now? Well you may ask – around 2.50. Ouch. If there is an upside it can only be that I don’t own all that many. But still, the pain – we hates it. I’ve made some profits from some of the stuff, but not… Read more »

Spot on re PPP mate, from Perth myself and only just discovered stockgumshoe- best site ever. Spent hours in the past chasing up various teasers info to source the promoted stock without subscribing and bugger me – I didn’t have to, these blokes do it for you. Legends!!

(“Vernacular” – for the previous reviewer). Gumshoe still rates top stars … Customer service for D&D is alright, however I find the information provided is often after the event, that the “pics” are obvious if one has been doing the research. I rarely receive the D&D emails on time, if at all….containing current password to enter D&D online site. So have found it to be an overall frustrating experience being from Sydney and having subscribed to OS publications which if nothing more reliable. Agree with the previous reviewer that the greatest insights, the best pics are those chosen as a… Read more »

I used to subscribe to Diggers and Drillers and it was one of the worst things I ever did. Apart from recommendations such as Windimurra Vanadium which completely collapsed I naively followed their gold picks. Back around December 2008 I was looking to buy gold miners and thought I was being smart by following the advice of someone who supposedly had pored through the accounts, visited the mines, spoken to the management. The recommendations they gave were AXM, SBM, and CTO. In fact they claimed AXM was surrounded by a moat of cash. Just have a look at the performance… Read more »

I have only recently subscribed and have been sifting through all the information they have sent me electronically. What I would like to say is that I am a little be-mused that the majority of the emails I have received are to subscribe to further subscriptions e.g. Australian Small Cap Investigator and another strange one called ‘Swarm’ that they were peddling for $1500- with only 188 seats available!?! Has anyone heard anything about Swarm? Anyway, still doing alot of reading from the D&D Subscription and don’t really appreciate being bombarded with all the other ones……..

I signed for the 30 day free trial and am now wishing to cancel and receive a refund however I cannot find how to do this as there are no contact numbers – does anybody know how to contact Diggers & Drillers for their money back no questions asked guarantee?

This is a very interesting pick. They report 11/5. Can’t wait to see their numbers!

Try Calloway CWT.UN on the Toronto exchange – seems to be Walmart's main landlord in Canada – alternatively Rio Can is a large retail realestate provider.

Got into it via the free Business Spectator mail subscription. Took all three trials in Feb/Mar 2010 (Diggers&Drillers, SmallCap Investigator and Slipstream Trader) and kept only the SmallCap Investigator as relatively cheap reading material (interesting to know what is promoted with possible gains up to 200% in the next two years – example: Jan2010 newsletter with GNS). Of the other two, Diggers&Drillers, at least to me, regurgitates readily available information (via Google’ing as example, as well as other free investor websites) intermixed with a lot of hype. Slipstream Trader is purely technical trading and if you believe in it then… Read more »

Hi
I have been a subscriber since July 2010 and am happy to sau that only 2 stocks that were recommened are in the red. One of which would not be if I had brought it when it was recommended so really my fault.
3 are over 70% inc
7 over 20% inc
Of the 2 that are down 1 is 3% and one is 20%.
I could live with this sort of performance from any stock picker.
I suppose on ly time will tell if they can keep the track record going.

I have been long both metal and SLV since summer of 2006. As consumption of metal was approaching the amount mined annually, Butler was more or less hoping for a “failure to deliver” on the metal. (SLV shares were still believed to be actual metal in the vault.) The “big shorts” would be squeezed and we’d get rich. The shorting of SLV shares, combined with lessening demand for silver, took them off the hook. And I got poorer!

I have acted upon their recommendations in the last 6 months and have benefited greatly from the tips better than any other broker or other newsletters. You need to be patient and get the timing right as the market trends will tell you.

I have acted upon the Diggers and Driller’s recommendations in the last 12 months and have benefited greatly from the tips better than any other newsletters (I have 9 of tehm at the moment). Excellent performances. Thank you

Interesting — high management fee, but that is a nice consumer staples portfolio they’ve put together … and an unusually high discount for the fund. Thanks!

I came across D&D, and subscribed- what a mistake. I found out that the market scoffs at the newsletter, and it is only a matter of time before each stock- as soon as the D&D lemmings stop buying- fall off the inevitable cliff. The lemmings wonder why, and there’s tears all round. Subscribers are manipulated into keeping their subscription, or feel like they will fair (harder). Fortunately, sites like Gumshoe exist, because D&D accepts no criticism. It relies on ramping to keep it all afloat. Be careful with your money. The sub looks “cheap” because there is no such thing… Read more »

Thanks Howard — I’m glad someone knows more than I do on this, didn’t know about the sulfur and metal problem, I tend to hear geothermal discussed solely as it relates to carbon emissions but I suppose it shouldn’t surprise us that the story is more complicated than that.

Raser has been working on that “lower temperature” technology to make geothermal work outside of those prime areas like the Geysers, but I have no idea how feasible it may end up being (it’s kind of an odd company otherwise, too). Thanks again.

Which points out the real opportunity: invest time in writing such ads, then "redeem" them for hard cash when the situation is favorable.

I first subscribed to D&D on 26/01/2010 at a cost of $134. I never invested in any of their recommendations. On 18/12/2010 one month before my subscription expired they debited my credit card $268 without asking me if I wanted to renew. On 3/01/2011 they debited my credit card further $194. Bringing total subscription to $596 before the subscription expired. I eventually got my $268 back after I complained. Now I just got to work out how to stop their “automatic” renewals without canceling my credit card. After that never again.

My only serious problem is timing. Hard to “get on” at recommendation price but to be fair this is emphasised as being very very important. I have done very well on a couple of recommendations IF the balance of investment is right. Take your money off the table when you have a win. Again, to be fair, this is advice given AND emphasized.No point in getting shitty with Cowie if you make a decision that flops. ALL these “recommendations” are given as speckies. They are broad ranging across diverse commodities and some will fly,some will tank. eg NKP

Cant work out people who complain over auto renewals as this is a review site.IF your too scared too pay a premium for good recommends, then you truly aren”t an investor.IF you cant afford too pay a premium, then stop investing cause you will never learn. LETS stick too the reviews.OTHER wisei signed up again and look forward too each letter coming my way.And my piggy bank is getting FAT..

Hi all. I’ve been a subscriber for over 2 years now, and I find Diggers and Drillers to be the best value adviser so far. Considering the low annual price, one does not have to have too many winners to be ahead of the cost. But, there are a couple of things the unwary should be aware of: Firstly, the recommended stocks invariably jump disproportionately immediately after the issue of the recommendation, so it is nearly impossible to get in at the recommended price. So be patient, and don’t get caught up in the initial euphoria. You will nearly always… Read more »

Yeah just re scribed again,i love reading this publication its like Gullivers travels,but its DR ALEX in charge here.I like it because he gets out and shakes his booty with the real minning community.He sources upcoming companies from the asx perspective.AND boy i have learnt a few new ones by reading his info.ITS not boring too read and holds ones attention. I study up too 12 different publications per week,and this is MINE gripping.Things are tough in the market and he has only a couple of laggers in the PORTFOLIO.But thats not the authors fault its the climate of the… Read more »

The cehpaest US brokerages I know of are Zecco (www.zecco.com) and tradeking (www.tradeking.com). Neither will charge you a fee for holding an account open or have a minimum balance, and charge commissions under $5 US. I don’t know if you can use them in Canada. If that doesn’t work google ‘low cost brokerage’ and ‘canada’ and you should find something.Also I’d invest a bit more than $50 in a go, just because the commission you pay will be such a high percentage of what you invest.

All I can say is thank you. I started subscribing to various stock trading newsletters about 3 months ago. Now I find my mailbox stuffed on a daily bases with people (and even the newsletters I PAID for) trying to get my to subscribe to other newsletters or insiders takes on top stocks to trade. I was overwhelmed and had no idea what to do, but then I found Stock Gumshoe. Bless you!

Any subscriptions from Port Philip Publishing are a pain in the neck. You pay for a service and then are bombarded with multiple requests to subscribe to another service which is a specialised area within the service you have already shelled out for. Signed up for the crypto service – and then was asked to join the crypto tech service providing great trading insights for 1.9k a year. Signed up for the cycles, trends and forecasts service – and then was asked to join the Time Trader Service to narrow down the best time to buy. Dont waste your time… Read more »
