Larry Edelson’s Real Wealth has made some very good picks recently, accurately taking advantage of the strong up move. Unfortunately, he publishes at Weiss Research and I also have a subscription to Martin Weiss’ SAFE MONEY, which continually preaches the sky is falling. Thus I didn’t take any of Edelson’s long recommendations and missed out completely! He uses CYCLE analysis to help with timing and apparently he’s quite good at it. Buys are generally in the natural resources which makes sense to me. Cost of the service is low too, $99/yr if I remember correctly. Overall, highly recommended!

All, I have had this subscription for 2 months and the jury is still out for me. This is my last Weiss subscription as all of the other ones have LOST ME TONS OF MONEY. Just see my posting on this site under “Million Dollar Contrairan Portfolio”. This sums up The Weiss Group and it subscriptions. Unlike all of the other clowns at Weiss, Larry seems better to a degree (ie tallest midget at the moment). However, I know his strategy is natural resources but he is all over the board with cycle timing and than flips back to fundamentals.… Read more »

Stumbled into Larry’s Real Wealth after cancelling Million Dollar Portfolio because Larry uses a more technical approach in trading than a fundamental approach which lost me some money in this recent rally. Larry and Claus seemed to have opposing views on the stock market but the bottom line is that Larry’s recommendations made back the money I lost from MCP and then some. I also made back some losses incurred with other newsletters as well. One of them is Andrew Gordon’s Red Flag Insider. Larry does acknowledge that the economy is still in the dumps and gold and commodities will… Read more »

So far so good with Larry since March 10th 09. Wish I had listened to him that first month as I was also short the market with Martin Weiss and lost a bundle on the market’s rebound. I’ve gained most of that back – some with Larry’s advice, some with advice from others and my own picks. Glad I didn’t do Claus’s contrarian portfolio, as I was very close but decided not to since I was not happy with their “hold” rec’s on the shorts while I was watching my gains go down the tubes. I’ll be very focused on… Read more »

Over the past few years I have subscribed to many of the Weiss Products , ( now a thing of the past , losing a large % of my capital on their Reco’s ) which is how I became interested in Larry Edelson , I subscribe to Uncommon Wisdom and Real Wealth and while I do believe in his Investments , I also have lost money on his Recommendation’s , Gold was suppose to be in for a sharp substantial pullback , so we shorted it and even after it hit the stop loss he still echoed the pull back… Read more »

Subscribed 3 months ago. Close to break even. Best pick: RTP. Worst Pick: None have been terrible, but with the most recent pullback about 50% have stopped out for losses. Pros: Specific monthly guidance on natural resource picks with entry points and stops. Metals, water, energy. Cons: Don’t expect more than monthly guidance. It’s not clear his best picks are given out to those of us in the cheap seats. Constant upselling to more expensive subscriptions. Some of his best pickes are in ‘bonus’ reports, and as such, are not guided or included in the core portfolio. That leaves it… Read more »

I wish this site had a way to update a review. I entered a review just yesterday, and then realized I really hadn’t done my complete due diligence on Edelson’s Real Wealth report. I spend about 12 hours analyzing every trade the service has recommended since 2004. There could be some flaws with the data I downloaded, but I’m pretty sure it’s in the ballpark. The service started mid-2004. I am only evaluating the trading advice. Larry advises investors to keep about 15-20% of their portfolio in gold- bullion, & gold funds like GLD. The other 80% he trades in… Read more »

Its really a shame to have someone (Beach) put such misleading information on this site when stockgumshoe works so hard at getting the facts right. I’m a scientist, there have been very good studies in the very best independent labs (most in anti-GMO Europe) and the plants absolutely don’t harm bees. There has never been any negative health effects from GMO plants. These plants are not weeds; nor do they invade organic farms any more than non-GMO plants. The reason they get patents for their work is because they are inventions! They take many years, usually over ten, to develop… Read more »

All, Well, I finally threw in the towel on Larry and Real Wealth as well. I cannot stand anything Maritn Weiss. I did a couple of trades with Larry and lost money as well (however not as big but still a loss). His first pick was to buy the short ETF for gold (lost on that one which is par for the course). Over 95% of all of my trades with all Weiss subscriptions have lost me money and I cannot take it anymore. None of them can pick a stock to save their life. I have a better chance… Read more »

Just like another blogger noted the first stock out of the box was an inverse gold ETF. What a disaster, he says they’re small losses but when you add the commission fees in it’s much worse than he would have you believe. He says he’s in Bangkok but I’ve seen him here in Jupiter Florida about five times in the last several months so I’m not sure what the story with that is. Being a Martin Weiss stooge, no I mean Weiss analyst he’s only doing moderately well because the market is doing very well. Larry has a tendency to… Read more »

Weiss is peddling a “new ELITE” subscription “service” for limited time (sign-up before 12/31/09)at a one time, lifetime cost of $595.00 – alleged savings of approx. $499 – touted value of over $10K based on 10 YEARS cost of subscribing separately to FIVE of his other monthly newsletters including his “flagship” ‘SafeMoney'(read reviewers LOSSES on this loser) Larry Edelsons ‘Real Wealth,’ Nilus’s ‘Dividend’newsletter, the ‘newer’ Weiss stable of ‘analysts’ publishing a ‘Currency’ newsletter etc… Predictably, Martin Weiss boasts about his alleged ALTRUISTIC motives – purportedly to protect & help ‘health… Read more »

I am a new subscriber (2 months) of the Real Wealth Report. I sounded like a good option to protect part of my portfolio from what’s going on this crazy financial world right now. Unfortunately I read from these reviews that Real Wealth Report also does not appear to be a good hiding spot to preserve my wealth and make some extra money. If the Real Wealth Report does not work for the folks in this review, which comparable newsletter does? Could someone post some good alternatives to the Real Wealth Report here? Thanks!

Just started this summer. I have been trying several newsletters since last spring, many of them with an end of the world flavour written by gold bugs: Jay Taylot, The Gold and Oil Guy,Real Wealth, Chris Mayer Capital and Crisis/Special Situation. Mayer called the best shots by far. Real Wealth was OK. I did not follow many of his Larry’s recos as many companies he recommends are Chinese. I personally don’t trust small Chinese companies that much so I stuck to some basic companies like Statoil, Goldcorp, etc. However, I won’t renew. I am sick and tired of the gold… Read more »

Does anyone have Larry’s performance for the 2008 market downturn? Everyone, except Claus Vogt, looks good for 2009. What was Larry telling his subscribers at the end of 2007?
Where can I get a review of Larry’s total performance history?

All, I have turned off all alerts to MAM but got a letter in the mail for Real Wealth to lock in for 2 years at $89. He must have had some poor performance to offer this steep discount. I threw in the towel on Larry last year as he was the last midget standing after all of the other subscription debacles (just read them on this site Safe Money, MCP, Rapid whatever). They are all complete garbage. Larry, if you read this blog and you should, I wouldn’t even read your letter if it was free (unless I needed… Read more »

I have been a Real Wealth subscriber since 2004 and remain a subscriber for Larry’s macro-economic insights, views, and trend analysis. In this light I have seen no one better than Larry. His timing may not always be right on the mark and his individual stock picks aren’t always the best, but his views are on the mark and have been since 2004. I simply use the newsletter as input to my decisions, and I view his recommendations as just that – recommendations. Sometimes I act on them and sometimes I don’t.

I must, unfortunately, echo a lot of the negative that has been said about Weiss et al. They are quite a group of hucksters, always trying to tease you to another premium service or newsletter, all the while with Martin’s never-ending stories about (read: deification of) his father. Around a year ago they added some self-proclaimed experts on macroeconomic cycles. You would NOT know it by their predictive failings since then. Unlike the other posters here, I am not going to say that the Weiss et al people are insincere or trying to rip you off, but they have had… Read more »

Since April 2017, when Marckyle posted this, OBMP has gone from $0.25 to $0.08. He claims (in a post below) not to be a “pump and dump” promoter; so he must just be a misguided investor who bought OBMP just after it had peaked in March, and he’s lost money ever since. As he rightly says, though, “do your own research.” But certainly, don’t follow his lead! :-p Regarding Real Wealth Report, I haven’t followed them; but reading their most recent mailer, which I received today, it’s clear Mike Burnick is trying to follow in Larry Edelson’s footsteps with his… Read more »

Yeah, his timing is just as bad as the rest of the clowns at MAM. Back when the Euro hit below 1.1900 a couple of months ago and Europe was going to fall into the never ending black hole, MAM including Larry said death to the Euro and the next leg is around the corner get out now, HURRY!!!!! Well just like clockwork, the Euro is almost 10% higher since that watershed call they had. If you would have sold your FXE position, you would have sold at the absolute low. These guys are terrible.

Somehow I stumbled upon the Weiss group and Agora and get Larry in Uncommon Wisdom from the former and Steve MacDonald’s weekly wrap from the latter emailed to me free, no subscription. Both are entertaining and informative. So at that price I am going to give Larry five stars for value. I am not tempted to the Real Wealth report, the tax situation and opportunities are different in UK to US. I think his analysis of economies and currencies is quite good and he did put me into US MLP’s in March 09 – what a bargain that has proved… Read more »

I completely agree with E.Matt. I’ve had a subscription to Safe Money since 2001 and then Larry Edelson was part of the speculative group. His picks have been absolutely great and I have made quite a bit of money even to trippling (is that a word) my Roth. Only part i do is buy and sell if there are dips which i’m not sure he recommends although he does put stops on, I simply use stop loss %. the Martin Weiss part is the perma bear section I read but don’t go with if contraray to either Edelson or ….… Read more »

Larry is the only one I kept and trust in the Weiss group. He also wisely renamed his free newsletter Uncommon Wisdom and no longer writes under the Money and Market which I unsubscribed to after losing much money with Claus’ Million Dollar Portfolio (now should be renamed Million penny portfolio after many losing picks), and Jack Crook’s World Currency Options and World Currency ETFs. Often Larry disagrees with Weiss as to the direction of the markets. Weiss constantly says the market will tank but it never does. Larry called the March 2009 rally but Weiss still said the market… Read more »

Hi Masa,
I recently signed up for the FLEX Alliance in which I can choose 5 products. I like the Junior Resource and Resource report. What other 3 things do you recommend and has had good picks? I have to make a decision by Monday as to which 5 products I want. I can interchange products but right now don't have any more money to invest anyway. I'm not wealthy yet but working on it.:) Thanks

Following Weiss group advice was a bad decision. I lost money.

Finally, I realized that the only good adviser of the group is Larry Edelson.

I no longer listen to the others’ advice.

Very cutting edge & educational. Larry backs up his theories with history & facts.

He recommends natural resource/contra dollar investments and uses stop losses & portfolio allocation to reduce risk. Based on $100K, Larry recommends how many shares of a security to purchase.

He uses his own proprietary software for market timing. Although short term timing is more difficult, his intermediate & longer term timing seems more reliable. He correctly called the crash of 2008 & had subscribers into cash. He sends out Flash Alerts when needed.

I feel confident having Larry help navigate me through this treacherous market.

He believes in his systems but in the case of precious metals, the historical timelines he uses do not factor in random events. These include contagion in the Middle East and N. Africa, and a short squeeze in silver that has led to physical shortages. Frankly, six weeks ago he didn’t even take silver seriously. Larry spins his predictions to imply success but he is not the market timer (DOW 9600 declared a year ago)that he thinks he is.

Larry has had a bad year , picking numerous losers.Although he installs stops, this all costs the subcribers money. This is reflected in RWRs poor return in 2011.
Larry also completely missed silvers movements, almost like he had a grudge against it in its early days.
In my opinion this report should be read only for general interest , forget about acting on the reccomendations.Too low returns overall, at best.

I’ve been a subscriber for about 3 years and will be for several more years. Sometimes I buy a stock from Larry’s portfolio, sometimes I buy a stock from my own research, and sometimes I make a best guess. Larry focuses on natural resources and that’s the important aspect for me to be subscribed to Real Wealth. I’ve learned a lot from reading his information. As of the July 2011 issue, Larry’s portfolio performance is down 1.26%, mine is slightly higher.

I have subscribed to Real Wealth Report for several years, back when gold was less than $300 an ounce. Since this newsletter targets natural resources, overall I have done well. Larry uses technical analysis, which is very good, and cycle analysis, which can be right on or completely wrong. His latest recos to short the S&P during the recent run up probably cost his subscribers a bit of cash; I did not follow this advice as I have been burned before with the cycle studies. His macroeconomic reviews are interesting and this is the principal reason I still subscribe. Real… Read more »

I have followed Larry Edelson’s advice for several years. He is consistent but often his timing is off in both directions. His advice was only so-so last year (2012), but to date, I have profited and am depending on him over and above the other (several) newsletters to which I subscribe. The subscription price is well worth it.

I have been with real wealth report since about Oct. 2013. I wish I wasn’t. He has senstational commentary, but I have not seen anything right so far, and his “cycles” have been very wrong. When gold hit its lows end of 2013, he was strictly against getting in at low prices, calling for sub 900, until it went over 1300. And then obviously at 1240 now, it proved wrong again and you would have lost all your confidence. Bonds is another interesting matter. The firm has been calling crash of bonds for 2014 when 30 years were about 128.… Read more »
