I kind of like reading Charles Mizrahi’s stuff — the teaser pitches are over-the-top, of course, promising way more than they can deliver, but the companies he touts tend to also be relatively rational when it comes to things like earnings or cash flow. For example… his pitch about Brink’s being the best play for […]
Today’s tease for our consideration comes from Charles Mizrahi, who in recent years has been putting out Alpha Investor, one of the entry level (currently $79/yr, one year refund period) newsletters from Banyan Hill — that letter tends toward relatively stable investments, from what I can tell, and focuses less on the mega growth stuff […]
First it was SaaS, then CaaS, PaaS, FaaS… some of them have stuck in our minds as investors, some haven’t yet caught on as acronyms for the continuation of the “just in time” and “just what you need” subscription economy, but certainly the world’s shift from selling software and technical services from a contract or […]
Yesterday it was someone pitching the “No. 1 Income Play of 2021,” today it’s the “No. 1 Tech Stock for 2021” — that’s the nature of January, it’s prediction time and everyone wants to stake their claim on prescience. This one’s from Ian King, who’s pitching his Automatic Fortunes newsletter ($97/yr) and talking up the […]
I have a confession to make… sometimes I’m too quick to filter through the insane piles of junk email that stack up on my desk each morning. So many email teaser ads from newsletters have a long shelf life, running over and over for years, that I sometimes see the intro to an ad, say […]
Small-cap newsletter advisory from Ian King, who also edits the lower-cost Automatic Fortunes with a similar focus in larger-cap stocks. He says he’s looking for small, innovative companies with sub-$10 billion market cap who have the “potential to skyrocket” and generate exponential growth.
I published an article on January 13, 2020 about Mampilly’s “America 2.0” pitch and his “#1 Stock for 2020”, and though that ad is largely unchanged we’re seeing it a lot again now — most recently, the ads from Banyan Hill now say that this is “My No. 1 Stock for 2021,” and present this […]
Hi Irregulars, new member here. I was wondering if anybody had any guesses at the new teaser pitch from PM for his new service Secret Portfolio. This might be from his new publishing firm Bold Profits instead of Banyan Hill.
This article was originally published on April 23, 2020, when we first saw the ads from Paul Mampilly — most recently this has been more aggressively pitched with the idea of the “12 million mile battery,” so we’re re-posting our solution for you. The ad has not changed and is still dated April 2020, and […]
Today I thought I’d take a look at the latest teaser pitch from Extreme Fortunes, a “no refunds” monthly stock-picking newsletter that they’re currently pricing at $2,995/yr., positioned as the “upgrade” letter from Paul Mampilly’s Profits Unlimited over at Banyan Hill and focused more, they indicate, on smaller-cap stocks. Mampilly, by the way, headlines no […]
I came back from vacation with quite a few questions about this latest Ian King promo, and I’ve also gotten it myself a few times in the past couple days so I guess it’s still being actively mailed… and we’re going to take a few minutes to figure out what his “Great American Reset” pitch […]
From banyan hill.. Any mention
Hello Happened to see the presentation ”One Trade” from Michael Carr on BanyanHill. You can see this at: https://banyanhill.com/one-trade/ Summary: Mr. Carr is going to share one-trade a month that is going to guarantee to go 2X. The cost of annual membership is $1500. My read: Few examples shows doubling within a few-days, but it […]
Today we’re looking for yet another “magic metal” stock, this time it’s teased by Matt Badiali for his Real Wealth Strategist newsletter over at Banyan Hill… and it’s all about this magical “green rock” that has some kind of virus-killing power, so the marketers are really highlighting the COVID-19 angle. Here’s a little of the […]
Ian King is out with another promo for his Automatic Fortunes newsletter published by Banyan Hill, and like most such “presentations” he makes some huge predictions to tantalize you with dreams of wealth. And though it sounds an awful lot like the “most important tech stock of 2019” pitch he was making last fall, I […]
It seams that Banyan Hill is full of promises. By the sounds of it, are they all broken promises. Anyone know of the systems of Chad Scoop.Perhaps he is that option guy known as 50 cent. The systems Quick Profits and Pure Income are the ones I’m interested in. Does anyone know what these are […]
Does anyone know why Harry Dent sold Dent Research? Maybe he was just done with it? I was a lifetime member, and I liked some of their analysts. Now I’m handed off to Paul Mampilly and Banyan Hill. Is there anybody worth listening to at Banyan Hill? I’m not excited about digging through all their […]
You’ve almost certainly seen these ads from Paul Mampilly, the ones that start with the headline “These Warehouses Hold the Key to a $3.1 Trillion Dollar Revolution…” The ad has been running since at least the Summer of 2018, and has not really been updated at all in the interim as far as I can […]
A version of this article was published on January 13, 2020, when Mampilly’s ads first called this his “#1 Stock for 2020”, and though the ad is unchanged we’re seeing it a lot again now — most recently, the ads from Banyan Hill now say that this “$10 Stock Gets ‘All In’ Buy Alert on […]
So… what’s a “Q-Share?” Are they some magical kind of stock that you can buy, through some secret method, that’s much better than the dumb old regular kinds of stocks you have in your brokerage account? Um, sadly, no… not really — but there is a rationale worth investigating here, and a secret stock to […]
Can anyone tell me if this pitch from Banyanhill is legit? They are showing people how to make $1,000+ in under 60 seconds by ”sell to open” certain options. You even get a ”free” laptop.
Service that recommends one or two trades per month, with some connection to insider buying signals — they say they “have a strategy that allows us to follow insiders into their next massive gain, allowing investors to profit.”
Hi: Anyone know if there are any real and good tax tips in what they are selling? Thanks
One of half a dozen Paul Mampilly-connected newsletters at Banyan Hill, this one is a “trading service” that attempts to pick a couple midsize stocks each month that have “true momentum” (which seems to be a qualitative assessment of the business prospects, not a market momentum measure).
Geothermal is back! Paul Mampilly is circulating his “Ocean of Energy Under all 50 States” pitch once more, so it’s time to take another look. His ad is almost exactly the same as it was when we first covered it in March, 2017, but I’m sure the story must have changed a bit along the […]
This article was originally published on Halloween, 2018, but we’re getting a ton of new questions about it so they must be running the ad heavily again. The ad has NOT been updated in any meaningful way, but some significant things have changed for this stock over the past year (though the stock price is […]
We so often see ads about how we’re on the verge of the “greatest technological disruption of all time,” with fortunes to be made that recall the gilded-age empires of Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, and that’s probably my favorite kind of financial pornography: Daydreaming about the charitable foundations we’ll found, and the universities […]
This ad is an odd one, to be sure… it is essentially identical to an ad that was circulated in the Spring of 2017 about this “magic metal”, with Matt Badiali at the time claiming that the metal was rising in price, was about to skyrocket and provide a chance at 3,000% returns, and be […]
An earlier version of this article was published on January 30, 2019 — at the time, this was teased as an “inconspicuous $20 stock” that would create one-stock millionaires beginning on February 15. Now, a very similar ad with slight updates is circulating promising “one stock millionaire” status from an “unheard-of tech stock” that can […]
This latest ad for Matt Badiali’s Real Wealth Strategist has all the stuff I love to see in a teaser pitch… a secret undisclosed location, a mysterious leadership team, a huge “you’ll make a fortune” promise as the company “unlocks a tidal wave of wealth,” and, even better, the combination of two hot ticket investing […]
Entry level newsletter seeking to recommend stocks that create “generational wealth” by buying stocks at bargain prices. Mizrahi formerly wrote similar letters (like Inevitable Wealth Portfolio) for other publishers.
Today’s ad for our consideration and de-teasification is from Jeff Yastine for his Total Wealth Insider newsletter over at Banyan Hill — that’s one of their “entry level” newsletters ($79/year), and this time he’s promising that he’s got a $5 stock from New Jersey that’s going to knock our socks off. OK, fine, he didn’t […]
This article was originally published on May 14, the questions keep rolling in so we’re re-posting it for you today — the ad has not changed, the company teased still trades at about the same price, with no meaningful news, and what follows has not been updated or revised since 5/14. Enjoy! Today we’ve got […]
New “entry level” research service that looks for “tipping-point trends” and recommends a model portfolio with a new stock each month, with trade alerts.
I guess this is shaping up to be another “marijuana week” here at Stock Gumshoe… this latest pitch talks up a chance at making five times your money on “a marijuana stock opportunity that almost NO ONE is talking about yet.” Which, of course, is music to our ears — we do love a good […]
This teaser solution was originally published in late January, but we’re seeing the ad pushed more again now and are getting more questions so I updated this piece to provide some more information and check in on the company. Matt Badiali has been pitching an “Infinite Oil” company in recent weeks in ads for his […]
We tend to get a lot of questions when there’s a new Paul Mampilly ad pounding the pavement, presumably because Banyan Hill tries so hard to reach pretty much everyone who has a pulse and an email address (with the latter being far more important than the former), so we’ll jump in on this Monday […]

Monthly “entry level” newsletter with a monthly stock pick and analysis, along with weekly and trade alert updates, seems to focus particularly on stocks with insider buying.
Paul Mampilly’s high-end (~$5,000 one time fee plus $499 annual maintenance, no refunds) advisory that aims to “turn $10,000 into a $10 million fortune” — monthly stock picks with analytical commentary.
Before you get sucked into reading more of my blather, take a moment and read the Wall Street Journal if you’ve got a copy nearby or an online subscription — not the whole thing, but read Christopher Mims’ column The World Isn’t as Bad as Your Wired Brain Tells You. It’s an unusually brief and […]
Paul Mampilly is out with a teaser pitch for his Profits Unlimited newsletter from Banyan Hill, which is the entry-level ($97/yr) stock picking letter for that publisher (which used to be called the Sovereign Society). I first covered this for the Irregulars last summer, but we’re still getting a lot of questions so we opened […]
I know a lot of my readers follow Paul Mampilly pretty ardently, partly because of the fact that his publisher, Banyan Hill, is one of the more aggressive promoters in newsletterdom these days, and partly because he made some very strong picks with his first, heavily promoted service — particularly the teased pick of STMicroelectronics […]
I’ve gotten quite a few questions about this spiel, which was for a recommendation that Mampilly was supposed to release yesterday (and presumably did) to his Extreme Fortunes subscribers, so I’m taking a look… despite the fact that I’m a little sick of writing about bitcoin. Extreme Fortunes is the “high end” newsletter Mampilly writes […]
Monthly “entry level” natural resources advisory from Matt Badiali, who previously edited the similar Resource Report for Stansberry.
Paul Mampilly is out with a new promo for his Extreme Fortunes newsletter, making this absurd promise: “Anyone who joins my research service Extreme Fortunes, and invests $10,000 following my recommendations, will have the chance to earn a profit of $100,000… in the next year.” So before we begin, let’s throw away that possibility. You’re […]
Today, for your holiday reading pleasure, we’re re-sharing a teaser solution that’s still being asked about (and apparently still being heavily promoted by the Sovereign Society folks). The original solution to this teaser appeared in a Friday File commentary, so some of you may not have seen it. I’ve excerpted most of the teaser solution […]
A few things to blather on about for you today — a teaser, a new mutual fund I’ve been following that has some appeal (and some of my money now), and some quick updates on my portfolio. First, though, I want to call attention to our discussions here at Stock Gumshoe. Most readers will never […]
Relatively new letter in 2016, priced as an entry level letter, with goal to “get in on the ground floor in innovative companies that are just about to see explosive growth.” Mampilly previously worked on letters for Palm Beach, Stansberry and Agora Financial over the past four years. Banyan Hill (the publisher) used to be […]
Jeff Opdyke has a pretty inflammatory ad going around these days for The Sovereign Investor, it’s all about how the consistent export of gold from the US — as reported in form FT-900 — will lead to America experiencing it’s “next 9/11” moment in April of this year. The basic argument is that the US […]
Newsletter focused on high-yielding equities, and boosting those returns to a “guaranteed 11%” with options selling strategies.
The folks at the Sovereign Society launched a new newsletter services called Pure Income this week, with the first official recommendations apparently being released yesterday — and yes, the ads for the new letter teased us about those three ads … which means we want to know what they are now. And no, we’re not […]
Those of you who’ve been around these parts know that I’m a sucker for relatively unknown foreign stocks — we’ve suggested a few of them in the past to the Irregulars, including some relatively hard-to-trade picks that I still like like Nagacorp in Cambodia and Lonrho in Africa, and we’ve uncovered many more from a […]
For as long as there’s been a Stock Gumshoe (that’s since 2007, in case anyone’s askin’), there’s been an easy pitch to be made that goes like this: China is polluting it’s water like crazy. China has a godawful number of people. China needs to spend a helluva lot of money on cleaning up their […]
Weekly newsletter offering picks and commentary on stocks in emerging markets.
Monthly newsletter recommending trades in currencies and currency funds and ETFs.
Today there are lots of things I could be talking about on a macro level — certainly everyone’s looking at gold, so I can give you a couple thoughts to take home with you on that: If you think that gold prices will stay well above $1,700 then Sandstorm Gold (SSL in Canada, SNDXF on […]
Jeff Opdyke, who writes the Global Growth Strategist newsletter ($895 per year, thanks very much) for the Sovereign Society, is teasing us about a small-cap way to get in on the “Cybornetic web revolution” … and lots of Gumshoe readers have been asking for an unveiling of this mystery that costs a bit less than […]
This teaser throws out hot-button political names to get us excited — and unlike many folks who stick to provoking investor ire by only mentioning liberal democrats, they make sure to offer equal opportunity in poking those hot buttons … “Dozens of DC Elite, from Mitt Romney to Nancy Pelosi to Ron Paul Are Earning […]
This particular teaser ad didn’t get covered on the main page at StockGumshoe.com because I don’t like to talk as much about thinly traded stocks on the free site when I can help it (since that usually moves the price, whether I say something good or bad, just because of the larger group of readers), […]
Today’s hype-ly delight comes in for a newsletter by Jeff Opdyke, who used to be a Wall Street Journal writer (columnist, most recently — which is why his name might sound familiar from the weekend “Love and Money” column that he quit last month), and gave that up for what is probably a dramatically more […]
Here’s how this latest teaser ad begins: “On April 30, 2011, at a small gathering near Los Angeles… this little Agribusiness will make an announcement that could catapult its stock from $28 to over $150 in the coming months… “On May 27th, 2010, a private California-based company quietly went public. “Not because it wanted to […]
Well, we have here today another of those stinkin’ teaser ad “presentations” that doesn’t allow access direct to the transcript … so I’ve got to listen to the whole dang thing. Never doubt how much I love you, dear Gumshoe Faithful! Here’s the pitch from the Sovereign Society, from Jeff Opdyke (he’s teasing to tempt […]
Most of you are aware that I usually spend my Fridays writing new material just for the Irregulars (the Friday File and the “Idea of the Month” writeups) — but sometimes, after a bit of time has passed, I will share occasional “Irregulars only” ideas with the rest of the class. That’s the case today […]
I’ve got a couple things to share with you for your Friday File cavalcade of fun today, including the answer to the latest Sovereign Society teaser that I think just started running yesterday — and of course, with gold getting everyone’s attention at these lofty prices, it’s a gold teaser. So on the topic of […]
A good number of folks sent me the latest Sovereign Society teaser email while I was traveling over the weekend, so I thought I’d jump in and take a look for you. The ad is really for one of the publisher’s conferences, they’re selling some of the content from this recent conference that they call […]
The folks at the Sovereign Society are pretty well-known for getting into a lather about the demise of paper currencies, and the need to get your money offshore, but they do also talk about more mainstream investments. And who knows, they might end up being right about the other stuff — fiat currencies have a […]
I haven’t written about any of the teaser ads from Eric Roseman of The Sovereign Society for a couple months, but this one caught my eye — and, clearly, the eyes of a great number of my readers (who are, in case I haven’t reminded you lately, the smartest, best-lookin’ and most insightful folks in […]
I usually reserve my new articles for the Irregulars on Fridays and publish them in the Friday File — and I’ll be doing that, too, when I do my more detailed writeup today. But I’ve had a bunch of folks ask me about this silver-buying program from Eric Roseman at The Sovereign Society, so I […]
Eric Roseman of the Sovereign Society has been blanketing the web with a teaser about a “different way to own gold” — one that he says might give you a discount of as much as $600 an ounce. Here’s what he says … “Recently, I’ve been researching different ways to own gold – and two months ago — I came across a little-known form of the yellow metal. The shocking thing is, it has outperformed “normal” gold investments by a factor of 10… or more!”
Interesting headline, eh? This ad has come my way a few times recently, in somewhat different forms, but the key company they tease is an interesting one … so I thought I’d share it with you today. This ad for the Sovereign Society service, which will cost you $49 a year, tells us that we’re […]
