Apparently, Teeka’s “The Super Halving” event refers to a complete stop in new supply of Bitcoin that according to Teeka will happen this year instead of the originally intended year 2140 (120 years from now!). He claims that there will be 6 small altcoins that will see a price increase that will be much higher […]

So… what’s happenin’ this week? I’m still wrapping my head around whether or not I’m interested in building a position in Coinbase (COIN) (or Voyager (VYGR.CX, VYGVF), or other brokerage/exchange companies in the cryptocurrency space), so I’ve been curious to watch the shares of COIN slowly drift down as Bitcoin prices fall from their highs. […]

This is only the second time I’ve looked into a teaser pitch for Frank Curzio’s Crypto Intelligence newsletter since it was first launched — the timing for that launch was pretty rough, the newsletter started promoting itself in the first half of 2018, when bitcoin was crashing off its first bubblicious peak and everyone was […]

I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about Teeka Tiwari’s “Trump Tower” teaser pitch recently, so although the ad is actually very old now (it’s still got a January 29, 2020 date under the signature) I thought I’d re-share our solution. It is still circulating heavily, and it’s an ad for Palm Beach’s “entry level” newsletter […]

I don’t know what’s going to happen to interest rates, taxes, GDP growth or the stock market, all of which are intertwined, but right now the sentiment expressed by the market seems still to be vaccine-driven optimism about economic recovery from the pandemic, which implies that the renewed push to speed up vaccinations will lead […]

Folks: I’ve been reading Kuppy’s AdventruesInCapitalism for years and he recently posted two article you may want to read if you are interested in Bitcoin or any of the Alt Coins – https://adventuresincapitalism.com/2020/07/28/my-favorite-ponzi-scheme/ https://adventuresincapitalism.com/2020/11/16/my-favorite-ponzi-scheme-part-ii/ While I’m not sure if I think Bitcoin is a “Ponzi Scheme” I do think his arguments that Bitcoin has a […]

Jason Stutman is peddling his Technology & Opportunity letter ($99/yr) with a new tease about blockchain, so I thought it would be good to take a look at that after we sniffed around in Paul Mampilly’s (older) blockchain tease yesterday. The spiel is all about an “arms race” in bitcoin mining that will be spurred […]

Hi everyone Seems there is a lot of talk around Bitcoin again. Bearing in mind the blockchain conference in May do you think there is a possibility of picking up again? Thanks! Mario

There’s no more cyclical stock than a semiconductor stock, and we’re seeing the whipsaw slash through that market now as trade sentiment weakens and pundits begin to see some weakness in the economy, particularly in the employment numbers, and the Federal Reserve fuels that uncertainty by essentially promising a rate cut in their attempt to […]

Thanks so much to the new folks who’ve joined us as Irregulars this week — we’re midway through our annual charitable membership drive, and it’s looking pretty good… I’m hoping we can get our totals up to last year’s numbers, and we’re almost halfway there with a donation pile of close to $6,000 now. That’s […]

I haven’t written about a blockchain, bitcoin or cryptocurrency teaser pitch for a while, so when the questions started piling up about the “Banker’s Coin” being teased by Barry Cohen in ads for his new Crypto Intelligence newsletter with Curzio Research, well, I thought I should at least try to get some answers for you. […]

We’ve got a big new cryptocurrency-related pitch to look at for you today, and since it’s from Ray Blanco at Agora’s Breakthrough Technology Alert, one of the most heavily-marketed newsletters around, you’ll probably see the ad soon if you haven’t already. It’s all about what Ray Blanco calls “The Stockchain” … which is basically the […]

Pretty much every publisher has jumped on the cryptocurrency bandwagon, and this latest one shouldn’t come as much of a surprise… Jim Rickards has styled himself as a currency guru, with his “Currency Wars Alert” and plenty of pitches about the impending demise of the dollar or other major currency moves in recent years, and […]

This is the headline that got a lot of readers’ attention: “WARNING: Do not put a penny into any cryptocurrency until you read this urgent message.” It’s part of an ad for Louis Navellier’s Blue Chip Growth, and he goes on… “If you want to make a fortune in the red-hot cryptocurrency markets, there’s only […]

This is shaping up to be “bitcoin week” here at Stock Gumshoe — I wrote a bit more about my (befuddled and pessimistic) opinion about bitcoin itself late last week, and we got things rolling on Monday with David Gardner’s “bitcoin backdoor” stock… … and today, we move on to Jeff Brown at Bonner and […]

“An entirely new digital currency will hit the net on August 28 “It will rapidly replace ALL current “crypto-currencies”… and then ring the funeral bell for the mighty U.S. dollar “Profits on this new currency are completely uncapped (unlike Bitcoin)… and based on past modeling, I predict they’ll be 1,000 times higher than we’ve ever […]

Quite a few eagle-eyed Gumshoe readers forwarded the latest ad from Dr. David Eifrig to us over the weekend — he’s pitching his Retirement Millionaire newsletter, which is an “entry level” offering from Stansberry that includes money-saving retirement tips and health tips as well as investment ideas. It tends to not be an aggressive or […]

I have written a letter to the CEO / Chairman of AIG advising them how they could get out of the SIFI Status with FED Oversight. I said that Bershire Hathaway started with a holding company to hold GEICO. It through off tremendous cash to buy other companies. Why can’t AIG do the same. Create […]
