Since i’ve discovered the Gumshoe, i’ve not opened or read a single teaser! I like his {And some of the contributor’s} sincere, skeptical, analytical approach. Fun, dry wit, {i like his priceless line about options!} Can’t argue about the price! If I have one complaint, more of a minor annoyance really, is that i find navigating & finding bottom lines & past performances a bit laborious & difficult. Also, are the numerous ads favored or merely sponsors?? {The Rich Jerk?? Really!} Overall, a very good & much needed “Consumer Caveat Beware” evaluation service! Washington D.C has always held a somewhat… Read More »

I stumbled upon SG only a few days ago whilst trying to track down one of those secret, elusive, must-have stocks from another site. Finally here is someone with the knowledge and brains to figure out these stocks and to give the whole story in a clear and insightful manner, with the good, bad and the ugly. Saves me hours of wasted time trying to hunt down information, so that I can determine for myself – in my own time – whether it is worth investing or not. Furthermore, I put in a request for information on a company which… Read More »

He didn’t supply many real clues for that one — my guess would be Denbury, but that’s just a guess.

I want to Thank Travis for his emails. I could be mistaken but Travis is the only person on the Web who helps novice investors like myself avoid investment scams or bogus investment newsletters. We owe a lot to Travis for his hard work because he is responsible for safeguarding investors like myself from making stupid investment decisions. I really appreciate what Travis has done and I commend him for his efforts. He is one of just a handful of people who assist the small investor and is a credit to his profession. It is nice to have someone in… Read More »

Since this web site has received no negative reviews at all….I decided to post a review Here,in the negative section,knowing that a million sheeple will rush to see who in the wurl could hate this site….it’s a trick,and you fell for it…. there have been no bad reviews Because this web site is Great, there’s nothing bad about it. Travis’s service to us folks is invaluable,timely,honest, and I wouldnt be without it. ….but if I must find something negative to say….. I’ve been getting a little annoyed,just a little, that Travis never commits himself to a concluding opinion to anything…he… Read More »

Without a doubt, the best must read daily analysis of the scams out there that are going to make us all millionaires overnight.Exceptionally well written, wish I could write as well as the SG.

Travis, your site is the only one I use.
I started with $50k last Nov, and using your advice only, the little “mutual fund” I created closed last Friday at $496k. THE PROOF IS IN THE POCKET.

Stock Gumshoe has saved me THOUSANDS of dollars in tempting subscriptions. Worth its weight in GOLD. Thanks Travis!

Best free site for specific market commentaries I have found is ‘Larry TV’ at Larry Williams Ireallytrade.com website. He has nailed all the big moves this year. It is irregular; but free.

Stock Gumshoe unveils the hype usually contained in newsletter “teasers.” I have subscribed to over 20 newsletters over the past 30 years and find it a valuable source to ascertain the stocks behind the hype. It is written in an entertaining way and provides a lot of valuable information to inverstors.

I have little to add to all the other glowing reviews but I nevertheless want to register my own personal thank-you to Travis for this wonderful resource. The good vibes and humility he transmits and the laughs I get are alone worth the price of admission. Beyond that, he has saved me a fortune in subscription costs and has often stopped me from making disastrous stock purchases. Especially in this merciless field, for someone to share so much heart as well as excellent advice–and even doing it for free–is truly amazing. I encourage everyone reading this to subscribe and support… Read More »

Probably my favorite investing website! Thanks Travis!

I promised I would join as soon as I made some money acting on the info, so I did. Actually it was the money I saved by profiting and avoiding from the reviews. This is truly a PRICELESS service. A real bonus is the fun to be had in reading the (sometimes a bit lengthy) reviews. Like many before me I just wish a service like this had been available years ago.
I did not assign a rating in performance since Travis generally eschews picks.

You are the MAN, Travis! I am so glad when a friend told me about your site. I find your service to be so invaluable that I have stopped subscribing to other investments newletters except yours & an option one (for fun). I can’t thank you enough for saving me money, time & frustrations from all those “millionaire makers” gurus. You are so funny, insightful & smart! You even have time to answer me directly sometimes to let me know that you solved the teaser ad that I just sent you. How cool is that? That’s why I gave you… Read More »

Travis is the true hero and protector of the retail investor (Abolish the SEC!) This site is a must check before subscribing to investment services. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

I just love this site for its informative format plus as a member of the Weiss Million Dollar Contrarian Portfolio I can blog the facts of their miserable performance, unlike the MDCP’s own blog that is highly censored. Martin Weiss can’t deal with the truth of his own professional failure. He may have inherited and made a bit of money himself, but as far as being a successful investment adviser service he’s a total failure.

Colombo – “Ah – Just one more thing”. If you are hooked on the story, simply pull up a chart and cover up the name. If Supply is in control, then buy the stock. If I had you look at the URL above, I would have a tough time convincing you to own MON without the STORY. Happy investing

Concur with the vast majority of comments by others but am compelled to redundantly add that Travis, aka Stock Gumshoe, not only excels in deciphering the over-bloviated hype & exaggerations rife throughout the insidious, incestuous financial publishing community populated by self proclaimed “former” Wall Street “experts,” sparing anyone fortunate enough to know about this website the costly “trials &losses” the vast majority of “investment” newsletters dupe too many subscribers to succumbing – without ANY accountability for accuracy or effectiveness, per usual, Buyer BEWARE, he also imparts invaluable investment evaluation information that every potential investor OUGHT to possess and use before… Read More »

Follow the MAGIC Three: 1. Pay yourself first. Target would be 10% but that is tough raising a family. 2. Maximize your retirement contribution. You would be surprised to know how many people do not contribute or do not at least do enough to maximize the company match. 3. Contribute monthly payments to your children’s 529 plans. In the begining I could not afford the monthly payments for my two children. However, I did it anyway. Because college payments were going up twice as fast as inflation, I even had to raise the monthly contributions. By putting money away every… Read More »
