Gumshoe,
I lost money on them, what more can I say? Can’t buy everything.
On an aside, speaking of gold, would like to see your discussion of Giurino’s email blasts regarding buy bonds and sell gold. Which bonds, which golds, and how to proceed?
Thanks for your great effort for us, much appreciated and respected.
Herb

I would probably edge this up to five stars if not for the author’s insistence on “buy and hold.” Some markets (cf. 2008-09) are NOT made for a stubborn buy-and-hold investor, and require a bit more mobility.

Having said that, Dan’s analysis is usually spot on, and his emphasis on financially secure companies (especially for current investment) has been well worth following.

I was a subscriber to Dan Ferris’ Extreme Value. If you are a value player and can wait out the storm it is a top-notch letter. For the common man it is ridiculously priced and maybe Dan wants it that way. Unlike the other Stansberry editors who used stops to avoid the beating the market just went through Ferris is the true value buy and hold investor. I admire his fortitude, but it’s not much fun to watch a portfolio plummet while paying $800 a year for the newsletter. The other editors at Stansberry have been very flexible in avoiding… Read more »

Dan is an ardent fan of what he understands as the Warren Buffet methodology of buy value and hold forever. But unlike Buffet, Dan is forced to modify value based on the prevailing winds in order to come up with new stock picks even in an overvalued market. Also unlike Buffet, Dan believes that companies that buy back their stock at higher than book value prices are actually returning money to their shareholders – you just try to spend of that “money”! Because he is too young to understand prolonged bear markets and does not need income from his investments,… Read more »

Hi, Folks, The comments below relate to Steve, who had recently asked for help in the “Chris Weber..” review, “to improve my finances through investing.” So I’m taking this opportunity to make a review of “Extreme Value”. “Steve, you mentioned that you’re very cautious. That is a good thing – i.e. to consider the risks before investing any money, and you want safety. Please consider Extreme Value, from Stansberry & Associates. It’s a very good newsletter. Pros : Dan Ferris has recommended many good quality stocks at a “cheap” price. For example, he recommended IEP at $22, now it’s nearly… Read more »

I have subscribrd to extreme Value Newsletter for a little over 2 years. It has provided me with cosistent winners . Some take a few months to develop but I would say his winners have out weighted his losers by 80%. Several of his recommendations, such as Roy were up over 100%. Altius and Sprott, actually trade lower after his reco, before they started climbing. I think one should trade his reco’s with at least a 3 yr. time frame.

Yes sorry to hear about your Mother. I recommend going to the Accuray website and check out the Cyberknife location section. It looks like at least one is in Cleveland, OH at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Good luck.

Nice voice of reason there, Maze, but one can't quell the desire of the fortune hunter entirely! The big inflation scare seems to be reintroducing "risk" the equation, at least.

CyberKnife was used on Patrick Swayze and he credits the treatment with saving (or at least prolonging) his life. If you remember, back in January, he was given something like five weeks to live. Then came CyberKnife and he’s now not only still alive, he is feeling better, looking better and even going back to work in a film.

FYI. Anyone must consistently check out as free of cancer cells for FIVE YEARS for doctors to consider them “cured” of cancer. Note of encouragement: My mother died last year at age 92 after beating different kinds of cancer twice in her life, once in her 40’s and again in her 80’s. Hope grows, thank God.

It has been a few years since I subscribed to Extreme Value, but I remember the picks did not do very well for me, especially at the expensive price of subscriptions. I subscribed at a special price of
$700, below the regular price of $1,000. I got a quick refund during the trial period and was glad I did. I have had much better advice from several of Stansberry’s other pubs.

With the Fed and it’s printing presses, their inflaton wish may come true…albiet a bit late for them perhaps.

Did you catch the article online where the Fed is thinking of offering its own securities instead of awaiting the Treasury to create debt and pass along.
Hopefully a erronious article, or erronious author.

No newsletter will always give you great advice. The burden of coming up with new picks each month is too great. That said, Dan Ferris is better than most. He researches companies more deeply and focuses on valuation, which suits my needs. Some of his picks, such as Tejon Ranch, have not gone anywhere for years, which makes me wonder why they’re still picks, but I have made good money on others. I have read his newsletter for more than five years, and it’s my favorite at Stansberry. My worry is that now that Ferris is also writing The 12%… Read more »

Stubborn? To say the least. He is recommending a stock because it meets his Extreme Value criteria and then you look at the chart across from across the room and even your dog can see that it is in a downtrend. Why he refuses to look at charts is beyond me. And when the stocks goes down 30% and the subscriber begs the question, he replies, quote, “Mr. Market is wrong!” And yes, no stops, so you have to sit through these downturns and think for yourself if there is not a better way to do this. But other than… Read more »

‘Extreme Value’ is catchier to the eye than say a more descriptive title might have been. When I signed up I expected analyses of value stocks with those most out of current favor being called ‘extreme’. This is not exactly what I found. What is, is not clear. There is a lack of a sense of timing in Ferris’s recommendations. All those of his recommendations that I bought last July and August are underwater: I am consoled that the companies are good and may recover if the market does.

If you use Dan’s information and correct timing along with your investing acumen and technical analysis Extreme Value will work well for you – especially if you use a put sale strategy. There is no such thing as ‘a hot tip’ in this industry.

Any body know about the, True Value Alert, subscription being promoted by, Ted Capshaw,
that uses a formula to find the “true value” of a stock…True value =current share price
[ 1+ 2-CPB divided by CPB.

As a Stansberry Alliance member for the past 7 years, I would rank Dan right up there with Dr. Eifrig, Steve Sjuggerud and Porter Stansberry. I have used his extensive stock research and my own due diligence to selectively extract value from his newsletter. His strategy for each stock selection is very well thought out and documented and more often than not, also extremely cleaver.

One of the best. Excellent analysis. Sometimes forgets to sell.
Best in a sideways or down market (value investor)

#Extreme Value newsletter
Dan Ferris’s newest pick (last Friday) is up 20% this morning, hit a new high. Since the whole market is up, it’s a little early to be sure it’s all because of his recommendation. It’s his first new pick in a long time though, so I’m thinking it is. I’ll wait a while.

His new teaser on the “Best Gold business on Earth” is a very tempting read. Is this just a regurgitation of Altius?

Question to those who’ve subscribed to this one: Once you join, is there an archive showing previous picks, with the ability to determine whether they may still be in the ‘Extreme Value’ range?

@thesongfactory, yes, all picks give a ref date and a buy up to price.

The newsletter is way too expensive for a service that focuses on value. Ironically they dont seem to want to give value to the customer. In this enviroment buy and hold is deadly and focussong on value is not the best strategy given the huge amount of hot money that’s driving this market. If the service was in the 299-400 ranges I would have considered giving it a shot
