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… Read More ยป

You’re right, sorry — that’s definitely an exaggeration on my part. KMP’s predecessor was Enron Liquids Pipeline — that’s the one that started in 1992, and Kinder and Morgan bought it in 1997, when Enron was still hot stuff (in a good way — the real collapse was still a couple years off).

So … not born of the wreckage, perhaps it’s fairer to say they got out of the car just before the accident.

I subscribed for a year or so and dropped it because it underperformed the market. Since Hulbert ranked it high I resubscribed, but again it underperformed and I wont reneww

what’s the deal with posting this pathetic example of marketed drivel.
“i’m rich and your not”
“and i couldn’t care less about you”
“i’m James Castle the great”

Ha Ha

Ya, well that sure makes me want to subscribe! What a complete moron.

I appreciate and found Byron’s insights into the oil & metals field very interesting. That aside, after paying and signing up, I found all of the materials they sent were clearly out of date by about 2 years!! All this talk of deep water drilling, and no mention of BP or how public perception may have changed since the accident! They clearly try to disguise the age of the articles; there are no dates anywhere in the articles. But most importantly, the articles mention great gains on all these investments, but it is not clear the timeframe they are talking… Read More ยป

Looks to me to be a fantastic piece of work, Dan,,, Thanks,,,
I only have one question, and it is, how far can we trust the Moody’s valuations??? And as far as that goes, the S & P??? They are under the gun, from what I understand,,, and I am reluctant to trust their gradings.
Other than that, KUDOS to a fine spreadsheet~!

i approciate reading this review. what i want to say is what people might have forgetten is to use a “good ’til cancel” order as protection against loss. use those fibinacci ratios/charts to find support and resistance levels. do not take more than 5% to 7% loss. ok so what if the stock goes up after it was automatically sold? well thats just the insurance you pay for disaster.

I have been a subscriber for over 5 years. I have consistently made money on their recommendations. They pick the cream of the crop of the natural resource sector, mostly large caps plays. Yes, these resource stocks tanked when the market crashed a couple of years ago along with EVERYTHING else. But almost all of them have recovered to pre-crash levels and then some. I have only two complaints: There are a ton of stocks in their portfolio and it may be hard to buy all of them if you follow other services as well; and they don’t follow a… Read More ยป

The most vexing aspect of receiving this letter is the deluge of manipulative pitches (averaging 3 per day) that arrive in the inbox of subscribers. I have repeatedly asked to receive only the newsletter in question and not any other related offers and updates and customer service does not respond to my emails. I have written customer service three times and received nothing in response. The overtly smug political tone of everything they send also makes a huge assumption about subscribers that is annoying, to say the least. But that’s just the personality of this service, how about the performance?… Read More ยป

I subscribed for a couple of years then dropped it in a newsletter cull. It was always an interesting and educational read from a geological standpoint. I never lost money on any of the recommendations, because I never bought one!

Byron King maintains a high rating for his OI investment letter by keeping 12 year old picks in gold funds/stocks that were made by his predecessor. He rarely ever issues a sell reco or takes profits (in the three years I subscribed), just keeps piling up ever larger portfolio that no one could possible keep up with. Doesn’t use trailing stops so large losses can and do occur, like during the gulf BP disaster. But the most money I lost was with his Energy & Scarcity Investor letter. I lost many multiples of the over priced $1500/yr I paid ONCE… Read More ยป

I subscribed for 4 or5 years prior to 2008 – they focus on ‘hard assets’ meaning oil and metals – they did well in rising market but did not predict the collapse – I lost some but then quit subscribing

I subscribed for 4 or 5 years, and early on I had some winners from following his recommendations. As time passed, however, the performance became poor to the point that I lost significantly and ceased to subscribe.
