2017 “No Brainer TRUMP Presidency Pick”

Myron Martin proposes a solution to Keith Schaefer's Promo for a Trump Opportunity

By takeprofits, January 4, 2017

[ed. note: Travis is passing the keyboard to Myron Martin for a quick note today — Myron has usually focused on researching junior mining stocks for the Irregulars, but he sent in this teaser solution that he thought more readers would like to investigate. We have not looked into the stock being teased beyond what Myron writes below, but feel free to join the discussion with a comment if you have an opinion. Thanks for reading!]

I read Keith Schafer’s bulletins regularly because I consider him one of the most knowledgeable oil and gas analysts in the business—a straight shooter who has made millions in that business. I know Keith and have met and talked with him on several occasions and trust him as honest and sincere. If and when I have enough capital to diversify into oil and gas big time as he does, justifying investing in his service, I will probably do so. I agree with Keith that oil and gas companies with good acreage in the Permian Basin are the current profit centre for energy.

As he notes in his latest teaser ad:

This company is a direct bet that the Permian Basin in Texas will be the most active place for drilling in the country. There is no doubt that the oil industry will make Swiss cheese out of the Permian – drilling thousands of wells.

That’s because the Permian Basin is by far the most profitable oil play – in the whole western world, really.

This promo is my real centre of interest because Keith has been running a similar ad for several months now that sent me on a “wild goose chase” looking for a small company with huge drilling potential in the Permian, where I myself owned several stocks that have done well. I don’t consider it a waste of time because I have found some interesting stocks I will report on in future. However, about half way through Keith’s promo for his newsletter I realized that while I had not found a perfect fit for his Permian based stock, since the election of Trump he has added more clues and now calls his micro cap play in effect his “TRUMP CARD” that a Trump presidency can turn into another ten bagger like his previous wins in the sector.

He says:

Trump’s energy plan is so simple. It involves a lot less red tape… And a lot more drilling. President Trump wants to unleash the full potential of the American shale industry.

Trump has laid out 7 key elements in his “America First Energy Plan”. Every one of them is tied to the exact same theme. The United States is going to drill for oil like there is no tomorrow. That creates The Trump Opportunity.

You really need to listen to his video in full to get the whole story so when I disclose the name of the company he is touting you will be able to check my research to verify I have identified the company correctly. Actually, as soon as he mentioned “frac sand” (a new clue added since earlier versions) I knew what company he was touting:

"reveal" emails? If not,
just click here...


I’m still not bullish on oil prices. But I am bullish on another commodity. It is a commodity that is closely related to the oil business…That commodity is sand—as in fracking sand. A very specific type of sand that is not found in many locations.

This sand is the single most important ingredient in getting oil out of shale rocks…Frac sand is a commodity that is going to see explosive demand over the next 10 years….

My Micro-cap Trump Opportunity has more going for it than just being in the right industry. It has the most highly coveted type of sand…the very best sand to use.

In fact I already owned the stock based on my own research. Keith boasts about doing a lot of fundamental research, spending a great deal of time and money, and I can say the same, the difference being his is focussed on energy and mine on metals.

Keith ties it back to the location here:

This frack sand company not only has the best sand—it has the best location. Almost ALL frac sand used in the Permian comes from… Wisconsin. That may as well be The North Pole. My Micro-cap Trump Opportunity can beat every competitor when it comes to cost—because it’s A LOT closer to the Permian.

The company in question is Select Sands Corp. (SNS.V, SLSDF). Here is a press release that covers the essence of the company’s situation that fits all the clues given in Keith’s promo. I recommend that in doing your own due diligence you check out their website and read other recent press releases.

As per agreement, I will not trade in this stock for at least 72 hrs after this appears in print so you have an opportunity to grab some shares before I increase my stake. With Keith’s considerable following, the stock is bound to rise as the company ramps up production and becomes better known. With a micro cap like this that is still more of a speculation than an investment, I recommend that you put no more than 1% of your available capital into this stock initially. Build your position progressively as the company ramps up production and sales through the next year, so that concentrated buying does not drive up the price to an unsustainable level ahead of the fundamentals of the company’s natural growth.

With oil prices still drooping, Martin, any change of your opinion on SLSDF (Select Sands), which you touted early this year?

Does anyone else feel like this stock was talked up big time then ghosted? Over a year since an update. Was lauded at 3x current price level, and while most important (for a startup) milestones were plans only. Many of those milestones have been realized so what’s up with the silence? Cashed in after the fast price rise and moved on? Not exactly what I’m accustomed to from SG. Any others feel similarly? Am I missing something?

This was a Stock Gumshoe pick? I didn’t think Travis made picks……

He does have a portfolio of his person holdings that he keeps us updated on but I do not believe he makes stock picks. Rather he breaks down ads for newsletter to let us know what they are pushing. Not his picks.

Never said it was a pick… If memory serves it was a tease as a “Trump” stock. Hendrixnuzzles wrote extensively about it, seemingly for good reason(s), which is what I referred to. Sorry if I’m mixing and matching forums on this one. Regardless, not a word on this since over a year ago despite considerable development as a business. Others have asked for an update also, to no avail.

This was a teased pick that Myron wrote about. He hasn’t been active lately for health reasons, I’ve never looked at it or followed it myself, and we do not routinely follow up on each reader stock we cover.

As Travis said, a once fairly regular contributor touted it, calling it I believe a “no-brainer.” Alas, I was one of the no-brains who invested in it. My faux pas, I’m an adult. Anyway, there’s been no followup, probably for good reason, given how no-brainer has so sunk.

As I recall, the “no brainer” term came from the ad we were writing about, not from our commentary.

Though Myron was certainly positive on the stock as well. Don’t know how he feels about it today.

Sorry to hear Myron isn’t well…here’s hoping for a speedy recovery. $SNS long., small position. I’ve been following the company loosely and they appear to have achieved a significant amount in the past year or so. Operations are in full swing. Revenue is rising. The resource base is expanding. Demand is increasing from their principal target market (Permian). Rising oil prices add to the positive picture. Sure, prices can slide for any (or no) reason but this seems like a MUCH better value now than when first teased. Anyone else following with another take?

Wade: I feel your pain. I lost quite a bit on this stock. I distinctly recall reading Myron’s article and feeling that this was the best stock tip I’d ever received from this newsletter. So I bought quite a few shares at .95 and finally let it go several months ago at a significant loss. I share your sentiment: my faux pas … lesson learned.

Wade, have you looked at numbers and operations recently? I would love another set of eyes (and brain) on this one, as I am seeing only reasons to add. Original premise still holds (significant shipping cost advantage to Permian coupled with strong and increasing demand) plus a (now) functional operation that is closing in on profitability and expanding the resource. Management appears to be doing exactly what one would reasonably expect and want them to do. I took a starter position early so am near even. That’s not really important, just sharing my particular situation…but at this price and stage of development, I’m strongly considering moving to a fuller position here.

Funguy, I’m flattered but I’m hardly a stock analyzer. I have looked at their year-end report, though, which like you have said, looked extremely promising, numbers up, business expanding, etc., but then again, it’s a company report. Why has its stock value then crashed so? Energy of course has not recently been the chichi sector to be in, but still…Maybe it’s now a case of buying low, but I was hoping that was the case when I first purchased!

Wade, Yeah, it’s always a challenge to gauge how much reporting should be taken as factual and not PR or wishful thinking. But nothing I’ve read or heard leads me to believe the general picture here is inaccurate. The volatility doesn’t surprise either with a stock price that rises and falls fast and hard. Nothing really unusual there. That said, I am somewhat relieved no one has offered up an obvious defect I’ve missed, just buyers remorse since it didn’t fly high and stay high. If I had a nickel for every stock that qualified for those sentiments, lots of nickels…
