Mr. Dines has been publishing for over 50 years. As such he is a member of a very small club of veteran advisors who have seen many bull and bear markets come and go. He is a brilliant and somewhat eccentric thinker, but that’s what makes him interesting! He likes to refer to himself as the Original Gold Bug, Original Internet Bug, Original Uranium Bug, and currently, the Original Rare-Earth Bug. Unlike many advisors, he does not follow the herd. He gets out there and leads the herd in new directions! I’ve subscribed to his letter several times over the… Read more »

If you want to read 15 to 20 pages of hot air per month then subscribe. If your desire is to watch hot pick become cold and turn your dollars into pennies, then subscribe. Dines tells you what to buy, but doesn’t tell you when to sell. He makes predictions without time frames. Sure, gold, uranium etc. are great investments if you’re willing to wait a lifetime. In brief don’t waste you money on this guy.He is a great self-promoter, but the product is very inferior to the marketing.

I lost many thousands like 40% of my IRA due to this same issue. I couldn’t afford to lose this. I would just like to enjoy 5 years of retirement someday. Anyway, I agree good advice on buying and lots of it but not nearly enough timely advice on selling. Hence I got stuck in the market crash and saw a lot of my speculative nuclear investments tank and then I couldn’t sell them as the market was so thin. I had restricted trading for many years because of my job but am now in a position to trade again… Read more »

I subscribed to Dines’ letter from 2003 to 2007. I was also a client with the (much ballyhooed) Peter Schiff’s Euro Pacific Capital during that time. I cashed out my portfolio (100% Dines uranium juniors and mid-caps) from the start of 2007 through the summer of 2007 and went to all cash. James Dines has a fine nose for the red-hot sectors in the commodities markets. And for that matter, he really and truly did “write the book” on a great deal of the technical analysis which is so commonplace today. He developed an entire theory of tech analysis back… Read more »

It’s best to get stopped out before taking a 40% loss, then use technical analysis (and real or imagined testicles) to buy back at a lower price for even bigger gains in the end.

Enjoy his newsletters, monthly, containing good info on his sectors of choice. Has had some incredible success, priding himself on being “first in” to a future hot sector. Commentaries on many things, health, sectors, politics, etc. The annual double issue is spectacular.

I am not a present subscriber. I took the Dines Letter for some years and canceled about 4 years ago. It was just too difficult to wade through the constant self aggrandizing of himself. There has never been a prediction that he hasn’t made first, or more accurate or “when no one else was even thinking of…” He recently gave an interview where he included that among his many predictions, he predicted in 1984 that the Berlin wall would fall within a few years and that the Soviet Union would break up and how he had been so out in… Read more »

I made huge gains with uranium stocks and other investments by following James Dines’ newsletter. That was some time ago. Maybe I just happened to subscribe at the right time. I believe commodities are about to enter another bull market, and if so I trust that Mr. Dines will again be the man to follow.

Loved his uranium calls. Did very well. They started to drop. He said to hang on.
He kept this call all the way down. Lost a ton. I learned the concept of the stop loss much too late. I have never re subscribed.

I believe uranium is a great investment and it’s difficult to know when the bull market will begin, truth is It can’t stay at the bottom forever sooner or later it’s going to pop can go on a large run, sometimes you have to have patience and wait for things to pay off ,

I went to an investment presentation in early 2000’s & was impressed by his presentation.Spoke to him personally & he said he had advised all his subscribers to get out of the internet bubble before it collapsed. Hoping for guidance , I subscribed & invested in uranium stocks that he said was next big thing. A sell advisory never materialized & I still am trying to re coup my losses. Newsletter writers & most advisers always say buy , but never to sell , in my experience.

I was a Dines subscriber in 2000. He did not get his subscribers out of internet stocks before they crashed. Similar pattern with uraniums, etc. Dines is pretty good at knowing when to buy but terrible at advising when to sell.

Why blame him, he got you in to the right places, and apparently you had growth else you would not have stayed invested, it is up to the individual to protect the investment growth, if not I call it greed, just saying.
Investing is serious business and you cannot expect advisors to hold your hand all the way, it is your money so take care pride in growing your investment.

I was with Dines 1999-2000 or 2001. HE WAS STILL PUSHING INET BUBBLE STOCKS. CMGI went from 170? he was recommending a buy..at 170…..to pennies….he stayed with inet bubble too long.
