Stansberry & Associates: Phase One Investor Remember this teaser? “On March 30, FDA results we’ve waited 2 years to receive could make you $195,600, overnight!” Well, March 30 has arrived! The results are in! And indeed you COULD have made $195,600…if you had SHORTED Arena Pharmaceuticals instead of BUYING it, the way Phase One pounded the table to have you do! Rather than soar over $10 a share, which could “change your life” and “allow you to literally quit work, forever!”…the stock plunged from $4.50 to a low of $2.85 today, before settling in with “only” a loss of 28%,… Read more »

Hi!

No – they will take it slowly!

Want to sell your house and pay them 3.8% of the money you scrimped and saved for?

Hope you like the change!

Hey, Rob L., Phase 1 never recommended buying ARNA! They said DON’T buy the stock, buy a call spread. They sold the spread after the announcement for a 40% loss and then recommended selling the July $2.50 put for enough money to get the loss back. But, overall, Phase 1 does not seem to “get” stock valuation, and tends to gloss over the negatives, so a lot of their recommendations hit their 25% stop loss and disappear. Plus, it is really expensive. Disclosure: My newsletter, New World Investor, competes in part with Phase 1. Also, after the sharp drop I… Read more »

Never subscrided to this letter. Subscride to S & A report so I get all the hype S & A dishes out for you to buy this expensive letter. So my comment will be limited to their “hawking” of ARNA. Such hype—-2 years of research—$200,000 spent for research—invest 5thou or 10 thou and retire. It was easy to figure out the name of this stock even though I don’t buy the stock letter (thank GOD). ARNA was in the news, on TV. I wonder what PHASE 1 spent their $200,000 on. Any way stock doesn’t pass phase 1 and tanks.… Read more »

I don’t have specific information, but I suspect it’s another one of the long line of penny stock promotions — and you can almost guarantee that the reality underlying the shares is nowhere near as promising as they say, and that they’ve either been paid to say it in order to move the share price so the company can raise money or let insiders sell at a better price, or they or whoever is paying them is hoping to pump and dump the shares themselves. There are plenty of risky penny mining stocks around, I’d personally prefer to invest in… Read more »

Over the past year or so, I have subscribed to a couple of Stansberry & Associates “Investment Letters”. They are interesting reading, I keep them in my magazine rack in the “john”. Although, the majority of the email I seem to get from them, is trying to entice me into buying just one more of their financial letters/reports. This was the case this afternoon. They tried to “hook” me with their special information regarding the “$59.00 Computer” etc., which of course sounded interesting. When I found out how much they wanted for their subscription, I had to laugh. Even their… Read more »

I have been following them for years and give them some credit that they do have some good ideas now and then like buying FCX when it was 20 bucks, but most smart investors can do that without paying for an expensive newsletter. I did subscribe to their stansberry research, but found that when I got the newsletter it was too late anyway to act. I am also getting all their hype e-mails and with just a little reasearch you can figure out yourself what they are pitching. Recently aside from the $ 59 computer they ran this hype that… Read more »

I gave S&A a high rating because I think they deserve it. They take all the legwork out of stock picking. I have had consistent success with S&A. I am an S&A “Alliance” member, and for $159 per year, for life, I get all their publications. They do state in the newsletters the ‘buy up to’ prices as well as stop losses. Anyone not following this should only blame themselves. I have found S&A forecasts extremely accurate, front running the crowd. They have some excellent trade ideas. I think S&A’s track record speaks for itself. If you wanna be in… Read more »

I’ve been a.follower of Curzio’s podcast for years and honestly P1 is not his cup of tea. I’ ve been a subscriber of most of his penny newsletters and they worked pretty well, specially if you didn’ t follow his 25% trailing stops which worked miserably and recently realigned up to 50%. I tried the P1 $5.000 bargain for 3 months and then unsubscribe for a 10% breakup fee ( fair enough for me) because it ain’t worth the money. Their picks are volatile, tiny & recently china focused because of a 2week trip Curzio made. If you time prudently… Read more »

I have not fallen prey to one of their huge pricey letters, but have sent them a little money for being ‘on board’. I have much experience, and know what Penny Stocks are, and why they are pennies per share. BUT,with that said, I keep my ear to the ground, and on occaision am able to follow or even invest with one of these carnival touts. Ususlly, it is a loser. I find, the longer the presentation, and the more you pay, the lower the results. I found this site, [Gumshoe] by taking a few of his hints, [S &… Read more »

I too have listened to Curzio for years from when he was with Cramer. I have followed his Stocks under 10 and PennyStock Specialist. These services are fine for the price, they picks are fun and volatile but at least they are liquid. I just laugh at “phase 1” and it’s huge fees for micro caps. It is all manipulated and I am sure S&A are in some way either paid or pre invested, just like Dines, but Dines at least admits it. When Dines puts out an alert, there is almost zero chance that an investor will “get in”… Read more »

The letter is focused on identifying real wealth building opportunities. But, in my opinion, the short term reality of the worth of their advice is generally overstated; as was the case with this investment. While I generally believe there may be significant minerals to be found underwater in these areas, and the technology to receover same is available, there are significant hurdles to overcome (some of which you identified in your remarks). From my investigation, I did believe that the company had obtained clear rights to explore the area. If and when they identified an outstanding location to mine, your… Read more »

I had a Phase 1 subscription 3 years ago. Phase 1 gives reasonably decent stock picks – BUT, and this goes to my real issue – there are village idiots who subscribe to this and many other investment advisories who haven’t a clue about LIMIT orders – and my problem with thinly traded picks or small cap companies, such as the ones I saw during my subscription with Phase 1, was that as soon as the picks became known to the subscribers the price went through the roof – I suspect due to Market orders. So after a year I… Read more »

First everyone has to realize that
all newsletters have one thing in common, they want to SELL you a subcription. Second, not all their carrot waving picks are good or make money, they are either lowvolume or YOU CANNOT GET OUT when you want to.

Go wuth your GUT feeling. example, When GE dropped to $7.00 and change, I bought 100 shares on a GUT feeling. Now I dobled my money in less than 4 months, so try listening to your GUT, Avois newsletters, subscribe to Gumshoe
