I think a lot of folks that subscribe to this kind of investment material think that they’re going to invest in recommendations that are going to give instant gratification – and if they don’t, then it’s a ‘scam’ (remember when you assumed your home value would keep going up 8% a year?). I’m enjoying the irony of all of those commenters from last year that formed a negative opinion about OI from the Hecla Mining recommendation (just one example). Well with a little hindsight, that worked out well, didn’t it? Look, you bombed out on the SAME stock that I’m doing exceptionally well with simply because you got OI’s recommendation (at $11) before I, a more recent subscriber, did (at $3). Same newsletter / same stock – different result. But look at what has happened since (personally, I think an even $11 purchase on Hecla might look good a few years from now).

Look, I can only form an opinion on OI based on my own experience, but that experience so far has been fantastic. I realized that I needed some professional guidance after a period of some hits and more misses on my own – and the simple fact is I’m doing far better using OI as a guide than I was prior. I believe all you can ask of anyone that provides stock recommendations is for a well-researched, good basis for the recommendation. YOU have to understand that you’re taking on some risk from there. I feel like I get excellent research and a good basis for the recommendations – and all for a relatively paltry price.

If I have a complaint . . . I really wish OI would add a simple ‘hold’ recommendation to the over-simple ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ ratings. OI has a great portfolio but they leave it a little vague on where to really zero in on from purchase to purchase. It’s difficult to look at a portfolio of 40+ companies – all of which are rated ‘BUY’. How about adding ‘hold’ (which means don’t buy at the moment) and various buy levels (like strong buy, moderate buy, etc.) like the rest of the world.

Keep in mind guys, we live in a world where energy is becoming scarce and fiat currency is losing value – OI offers recommendations that will help we the investor cope with, and perhaps profit greatly from, those realities. The OI portfolio holdings are, IMO, crafted for events that are looming on the horizon.

Check your ‘day trader’ hat at the door and you’ll be very happy with OI, in my humble opinion.
