This news leter is not what it claims to be, and its claimed results bear no relation to reality.The reccomendations are well thought out, but the analyst is very weak on technical analysis . The definition of “reasonable” includes pink sheet stocks and most brokerage houses do not allow stop losses on pink sheet stocks so you are flying without a parchute. Ideas are good fundamentally and bad technically. The site gives access to Mauldin’s ideas. These tend to be those of a fiscal conservative but not a nutty one as those on Fox, but Mauldin has a free news letter . Customer service will answer the phone and allow you to terminate a news letter that has cost you money with a pro rated refund if you are unhappy. Not a good response. Mauldin should spend less time telling us of his travels and more editing this newsletter. All in all the letter is NOT worth the money.

SInce launching the service in July, 2012 they have made good picks. Only one of their rec’s turned out to be a loss and that was the pink sheet stock referred to by another reviewer. If you follow their recommendation to use a 20% stop loss thats what you would have lost on that one. Every other pick has been a winner when closed out and the one’s still being held are all profitable picks.

All the stocks they rec are dividend stocks. The previous review stating they just pick pink sheet stocks is just plain wrong and you could place a stop loss order on all their rec’s so maybe that reviewer needs a new broker. Even if you didn’t have your stop in the market, it was easy enough to get out when it fell 20%.

I subscribed during their special offer of $99 per year and I would say that it was easily worth it.

I only dealt with customer service once and sent them an email. They responded within 24 hours.

My only complaint is the gap open the day after a rec as some of the picks have been lower volume stocks, but not pink sheeters. Their last rec gapped open the next day above the recommended buy price and didnt come back down, still going up so I missed that one.

Overall I’d give them a B, but no one who subscribes can complain that they have lost money if they followed the newsletters instructions.

I think one pick tells the whole story. Poseidon POOSF. Touted at about $15 saying all that could go wrong was “competition and regulation” and that it had “PROFITS ON FIRE”. In less than a month POOSF lost 70% of its value. In 2 months it was down 95%. It closed at 1,24 on 1/28. In other words Mauldin picked the worst performing stock in the entire stock universe. How does the man do it?

(He excuses himself by saying there was a stop loss but as many of his subscribers found, you can’t put a stop order on a “pink sheet” stock with many brokers.) Of course this is to obscure the terrible he made in the 1st place.

Don’t trust his numbers. He has put 2 different stop losses on the same stock in the same newsletter. Last month he put a stop price of $35 on LINE, Linn Energy, LINE hit 35 on Dec 31 and then rallied. Mauldin said the stop didn’t count b/c there was a dividend that SHOULD have counted. Oops my bad, I was stopped out.

The only good thing is that part of the name is correct: SHARK.
Never forget that your loss is NOT limited to your subscription price, you can lose a fortune on these picks.
