Opinions are like ___s, everyone has one.

This said, I think Casey has a very good chance to be correct, long term.

I have subscribed to Doug Casey’s (report) service for about a year now, and can’t really say i receive good value. Occasionally there is a point not generally available elsewhere, and perhaps i am missing something.

The Casey Report is one of the most complete analysis I receive in any investment newsletter. The writing style is interesting and holds one’s attention much better than the dry numbers & charts of so many newsletters. Bud Conrad is one of the top economists and not only did he call the current financial crisis right on the money, he told us to short Fannie Mae when it was in the 60’s, right before it tanked. For an economist, Bud is interesting to read or listen to. David Galland digs up investment stories that many times no one else is… Read more »

Running at around 35 pages per issue, this report is a good value for the money, as it is packed with a lot of useful information on economics, politics, relevant data, and investment picks. Bud Conrad, the Casey Research economist, is always enjoyable to read.

I’ve followed Doug Casey on and off for 20+ years, and only wish I’d followed him much closer for that period of time. I finally invested in a subscription of two of his newsletters several years ago before the prices went up, and have found Casey Research to be outstanding. They never claim they “know it all,” or have some “secret” “inside” information – they just do their homework, tell the readers how they do it, and suggest readers to their own due diligence (after telling them how). Most probably don’t have the time, so (like me) they rely mostly… Read more »

Have several of Casey’s newsletters and have been aware of Doug Casey for many years I see no need to reiterate the comments made by “bogus1” since I concur with everything he said. One caveat to those looking for reliable information & resources. Don’t expect to always get on base but do expect an ocassional homerun. These people appear to know enough about their areas of expertise to get you reliably into the game. The rest is your own due diligence. They are some of the most straight forward people of integrity you will find in the financial news business… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber to the Casey Report for over a year now and find it a pleasure to read. The publication covers a variety of topics – politics, economics, wealth protection, investments – which makes it invaluable, especially all of the data provided.

I’ve been a paid subscriber to the Casey Report and Big Gold for the past few months but I’m planning on cancelling both subscriptions. Mainly because of price. I think it’s good info for say $100 bucks a year but not several hundred like they charge. I’ve picked up a few good stock ideas from them for which I’m grateful, but it’s just too much doom and gloom and the same re-hash every month to justify the cost. Here is the basic jist of what every single newsletter is: The government is out of control and will never stop spending… Read more »

I’ve subscribed to Doug Casey’s products for years and have profited from not only the recommendations but also in learning about libertarian ideas and other things such as where and how to expatriate.

The only other newsletter that I consider better for this line of work is The Dollar Vigilante – and the write of The Dollar Vigilante, Jeff Berwick, says he considers Doug Casey to be like a mentor and it shows!

The “TD Circ 570” ad wasn’t from Stansberry & Associates, just to be fair/clear — it’s from the Investors Daily Edge folks for their Bond Trader newsletter. Stansberry’s bond newsletter is called True Income, FYI, we’ve written about that one plenty of times, too.

Really in-depth analysis, superb explanations of what is really going on in the markets, truly perceptive.
However, the performance of the actual recommended stocks has been terrible, and done so much more harm to my portfolio than any other newsletter service. No doubt they’ll bag some winners during the rest of this resource bull market, but of their picks that I still hold from before the financial crisis, several are still down 80/90% (and that’s just the ones that didn’t disappear entirely!!).
So in conclusion, brilliantly written, but beware their risky stock recommendations!

Indeed, the very small 'agree to terms' link is under the very large, 'ORDER NOW!' box. As stated: Subscription terms and conditions: Once your initial forty five-day free trial period to The Virtual Investing Club has expired the credit card we have on file from your purchase of the Option Magic offer will automatically be billed $49.95 per month.

I’m traveling overseas and of course left many of me credit cards home. I had forgotten that cc’s age, and are replaced, and eventually the auto-debit fails, which happened here.- I gave my sister my new number–but the rep at Casey, before she read it with the new “last numbers” stopped her saying “that card is invalid.” That’s just dumb. I have written repeatedly simply asking for a phone number that i can send an inexpensive international text and I receive no reply. C’mon Casey–set up a https secure website to renew, or at a minimum set up a Paypal… Read more »

I subscribed to Casey’s newsletter in 1982-83 when it was Crisis Investing. He was warning of imminent hyperinflation and financial collapse in the 80s. He was bearish on bonds when you could have bought 30 year non callable Treasury Bonds yielding around 11%. He was bullish gold and silver which were in a bear market for 20 years. Ironically, he was bullish on stocks, but for the wrong reasons. The newsletter was interesting reading, informative and well written even though his overall picture of the economy was off base. His investment recommendations were very poor. Casey touted 3 Australian gold… Read more »

We should talk. I learned the Doug Casey 3 Australian gold stocks was a fraud from the start. All about millions of stock options purchased prior to the marketing blitz by Casey and other top gold bug news letter writers and penny stock firms. Amazing scam done offshore over their newsletter clients that became the bag holders!!!

I just subscribed as part of a $4.95 teaser. They have pared down the portfolio greatly in recent months, so there are only a few open positions: gold, silver, emerging markets, farming, and shipping. The average position is down by about 15%. I calculated the returns on their closed positions over the year: -4.5% (-75% annualized). There were only four gains over 10%, three of which were options on Euros and gold. The other was a lucky pick of a European ag company. Overall, I don’t see much prescience or good money management, so I think I will be cancelling… Read more »

I subscribed to The Casey Report (along with BIG GOLD and their energy newsletter, forget the name now) from 2008-2015. I was initially attracted to it because I’ve liked Doug Casey since hearing him at Freedom Fest in Vegas in like 2003/04, and the writing/analysis was quite good and not overly sales-y until 2014 when (from what I recall) Galland and Olivier and others left, while Casey seemed to let Stansberry and other Agora-type people take the reins and he himself became less involved (or at least that’s what I hope) because the newsletters really suffered in quality and became… Read more »

I subscribed to this newsletter more for general information than stock picks. I can’t say I’ve been overly impressed with those picks – this newsletter seems to be the avenue to entice you to buy the more expensive newletters . I didn’t go thru that door, and will likely discontinue this one. The economic warnings Casey gives are worth knowing about, but one doesn’t need to keep reading about it.

I wish I had found the GUMSHOE before I wasted money on this. The hype is big to start, the each email you get is trying to sell you the info you thought you had already bought. Casey appears to have his comments occassionaly, but it is usually done by a staffer. It is now tied (not sure at what le el) to the stansberry (I think that is correct spelling, it is the big one with MANY newsletters) so they have your email and flood daily. I took 2 of the original stocks suggested by Casey and they both… Read more »

I have come to realize more so everyday – disregard mainstream analysts, Wall Street recommendations, and even MorningStar ratings, due to the inherent conflict of interest between the firms and their particular clientèle. Here is the point: YOU, are NOT Wall Street’s client. YOU are the CONSUMER of the products sold FOR Wall Street’s clients. Major brokerage firms are big business – REALLY big business. As in $1.5 Trillion a year in revenue big. They are incentivized, paid, probably bribed at times to punt stocks against their better judgement of the author at the expense of the poor sod reading… Read more »

I started subscribing to four newsletters two months ago (one from Bill Spetrino & three from Paul Mampilly). I wasn’t doing very investing stocks that I picked (mostly because I did not practice “due diligence”, and I have a bad habit of not holding the stocks that I have in good companies). From what I’ve gathered from the many posts that I’ve read, is no newsletter is able to consistently give you good recommendations. Mampilly’s $100/yr Profits Unlimited has had some very good picks. I’ve made a realized gain of $1,500, so far. But his other two newsletters have cost… Read more »

I subscribed to the Casey Report in November, 2017. In order to get a feel for how much I could trust their recommendations, I reviewed all of the issues from January 2016 through January 2017. I paper-traded all of the recommendations except for one Japanese stock. I assumed a starting portfolio of $100,000 to start out with and invested $5,000 in each recommendation. During that time there were 15 winning trades and 11 losers. The overall return for Casey was 11.3 percent. The S&P 500 index returned 21 percent during that time frame. HOWEVER, I didn’t go all-in on my… Read more »

I figured out it was a scam, especially since the first audio said the subscription was $199 then the next day I listen it was $49. So a red flag went up and I started to research the company. It didn’t take long for me to realize something was wrong

I ordered a book from the Casey Report without reading the fine print. I now have a year subscription to this service that I will NEVER use. Respectable investment services don’t hoodwink potential investors into taking their money. STAY AWAY!!! The incredible (wild) investment ideas that get your attention are bullsh*t when I looked them up – TOO LATE. Stay Away!!!

The service may be good but they spend so much time writing about how good they are that I seldom make it to the end of their reports. They rarely get to the point about the stocks you should be looking at, which by the way is why you are paying for a subscription in the first place. They fill up my email box and most of the emails are hooks to get you to buy into more of their services. And of course that is how you get the best info. Some of them cost thousands of dollars.
