Phase 1’s “Urgent Gold Information” takeover teaser for “Tiny Gold”

Deciphering Frank Curzio's tease for a potential "overnight doubler" tipped by secret contact "J"

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, June 13, 2012

This teaser is going to get a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, partly because Stansberry Phase 1 Investor teasers always get a lot of attention (they usually tease a small stock and they charge $5,000 for the newsletter, which gives them an aura of awesomeness — deserved or not), and partly because the pitch is for a near-term takeover of a mining stock … and folks who like to trade love takeovers that bring quick returns. And, of course, recent Gumshoe readers will note that the last time Phase 1 teased a gold stock, it took off nicely — that was a very different situation, but it still sticks in the mind.

This time around Frank Curzio (he edits Phase 1) is teasing a mining stock that owns a big chunk of land next to one of the highest-grade gold mines in the world, and that he thinks will be taken over by the huge mining stock that owns that high-grade mine. So who is it?

Well, they try to obscure in the ad — here’s how they put it:

“Urgent Gold Information From Our Multimillionaire Contact, ‘J’ …

“The situation I’ve just come across is urgent. So I’ll get right to the point.

“I’ve just received information from a very credible source in the gold industry.

“It concerns an event that, when set in motion, could occur in less than 24 hours. And to the right people, could be worth $100,000 or more.

“In short, it has to do with two gold companies, one of which you’ve almost certainly heard of.

“If this event occurs, it may be the single most profitable opportunity of the year in the gold industry.

“It could hand you the chance at a 100% gain. Practically overnight. And that’s a conservative estimate.”

This “J” that’s teased is apparently some muckety-muck in the gold biz who feeds good ideas to the Stansberry folks … here’s more on him:

“J has made a personal fortune in the gold markets on situations very similar to the one I’m about to show you.

“Please understand: I must conceal our contact’s name from you in this presentation…

“…Because revealing this information would allow too many folks to figure out the details of this opportunity. It could ruin the profit potential for our most serious subscribers….

“… this gentleman is one of the most prominent analysts in the gold industry. Dozens of the biggest money managers in America and Europe follow his analysis. He personally knows and meets with top mining executives and geologists… And gets invited to visit the most promising mines in North America….

“… the Financial Times has gone on record as saying: Anyone looking into gold stocks should pay attention to [J’s] opinions.”

It doesn’t necessarily help us much in our search to ID the pick, but I can tell you that the secret “J” here is almost certainly John Doody, who runs Gold Stock Analyst and has a marketing relationship with Stansberry & Associates.

But more importantly, what is this gold stock? They start to sprinkle in a few clues …

“In addition to J’s information, we’ve also uncovered 6 separate pieces of evidence that point to this event – with near certainty…

“As I said, the situation involves two gold companies.

“For the sake of simplicity (and because circumstances require that I keep a lot of this information secret)… I’m going to call the two firms ‘Big Gold’ and ‘Tiny Gold’.

“You’ve almost certainly heard of Big Gold.

“It’s one of the world’s largest gold producers, with 10 world-class mines operating across North and South America.

“Big Gold produces around 2.5 million ounces of gold… And generates nearly $2 BILLION in profits every single year.
