I recently subscribed to this service managed by Ian L. Cooper, Keith Kohl and Brian Hicks.
The subscribers are receiving access to the current Portfolio (containing about 20 stocks at the moment) and to several reports highlighting some of these stocks.
Some mails are sent with “buy”, “sell”… recommendations.
Relatively interesting.

Ok, my 2 cents on the $20 Trillion Rpt newsletter, which is apparantly the paid version of the free energy & capital letter. Overall a good service and track record, though newbie investors should take note that the track record correlates tightly with the price of oil. That said, I generally aim to get in right away when they recommend a company, provided oil’s above 50-55 a barrel. finally, i’m in on about a quarter of the positions in their portfolio, and done well by most of them, especially the bakken oil trades. i’ll continue taking this letter.

I am just completing my first year as a subscriber. In the first months of my subscription, nearly every pick was a BIG winner. As the newsletter advertised they were focused on the Baaken oil producing region and the oil sands of Canada, along with some oil related technology picks. Later in the year, they starting adding some picks outside of this core focus: LED producers, foreign oil companies, etc. They were sound picks but the timing was awful. Each one got stopped out after taking big slides. Most are back up now so if you have a long time horizion, it was not the worse thing that could happen.

Most of their picks had enough volume so that a sell advisory would not crush the stock price, but there were a couple where if you were not among the first to sell, you got burried. A couple of these were pink sheet Canadian stocks which did not help either. If you elect to go with those picks, choose your own exit points. For thinly traded companies if they tell you to sell and you have not already sold the stock, drop what you are doing and sell immediately.

Communications with subscribers are sporadic and contain varying amounts of information. It would have been nice when some of those “non-core” picks were tanking to get some information about why that was happening and what the likely outcome would be.

So I would recommend the service as long as you either have a long time horizon for your investments (> 18 months) or stick to their US and Canadian Oil industry related picks. If the stock is thinly traded, pick your own exit points and don’t be too greedy.

Actually their sell advice is conservate. On some larger companies, I hung in after they advised to sell and have continued to do well. It’s all a matter of your risk tolerance.

One other recommendation, since some of these picks are Canadian, you might want to use a broker that provides easy and low cost access to the TSX so you can avoid the pink sheet listings. I suspect in the coming year, their may be more opportunities for big wins in Canadian energy related stocks than here in the US.

I’ve been with them for at least a couple of years and, by and large, they’ve done quite well for me. It’s one of the few services I’ve felt fine about continuing. I had them when they first touted Brigham and NOG. Didn’t buy the NOG but did very well indeed with the Brigham. They also gave me AEZ which was recently bought out by Hess for about a 150% gain in my share price. I’ve also done well on their recommendations of KOG and AXAS. As with anyone, they’ve had some losers, too — (WEN.TSX.V comes to mind. I tend to cherry pick their ideas rather than going with everything — and I’ve had my own hits and misses within their ideas but for the most part their success rate and the resulting percentage of profit has been much better than most of my other services.
