Friday File — Trump’s “Make America Great Again” Investment

Looking at a Bill Patalon teaser about Trump, plus some thoughts about gold and "protection"

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, October 30, 2015

This ad about a “Donald Trump investment” is sending a lot of questions our way, so we’re going to take a look at it for you in today’s Friday File… and I’ve also got an update on Sandstorm Gold to share, plus a quick look at the idea of “protection” from market declines and how much that kind of protection costs.

But first, the Donald…. here’s how Bill Patalon’s ad for his $20/month Private Briefing opens…

“The $57 Trillion ‘Make America Great Again’ Profit Play

“Donald Trump is Talking Infrastructure — and We Show You How You Can Play It for Gains Up to 553%”

Why Trump?

“One of its top directors recently dropped $20 million on 800,000 shares of his company’s stock.

“And he wasn’t alone.

“Four of the company’s C-level Suite directors acquired another $2.2 million worth of shares. Even the CEO himself spent $2 million buying nearly 105,000 shares last year.

“That’s more than $24 million worth of shares purchased by direct insiders of the firm. And there’s only one reason insider’s buy in massive quantities like that:

“They see a chance for huge profits.”
