The latest ads from Cabot’s Global Stocks Explorer caught my eye with a “bypass the coronavirus” pitch. Here’s how the ad starts: “Bypass the Coronavirus…with this hidden gem at the heart of ‘the biggest investment boom in history’ “Operating revenue increased over 70%. “Gross profit surged 122%. “Net income was up over 60%. “Total bookings […]

This article was originally published on January 29, 2019, when we first saw these ads from Cabot. The ad is still running, with little to no changes or updates, and the article below has not been updated. When everyone’s worried about a trade war, look for the stocks that benefit from superpower rivalries… that’s a […]

Today we’ve got another “profit from the trade war pitch,” with Casey Research peddling a special report called “De-Fang the Red Dragon and Make 11X Your Money” as they troll for subscribers to Nick Giambruno’s Crisis Investing ($1,795 at the moment, no refunds… though you can transfer the sub to something else from Bonner, Palm […]

In Steve Shuggerud’s latest report of ”True Wealth” he calls Tencent a SELL. Today, I read an advertisement where Steve calls Tencent the buy of a lifetime. Obviously, I either have things wrong or at best, I’m confused !!! I’d appreciate irregulars and of course what Travis thinks. I hope you all will share your […]

What to do when the market is looking ugly, and pessimism is trying to sneak in through the back door of our long-running bull market? Look for a purveyor of optimism and see what he says. So that’s the mission today — as interest rate worries (and perhaps fears of political risk) catch enough attention […]

Louis Navellier is out with another of his “only a few hours left” promos to drum up new subscribes for his Ultimate Growth newsletter — he says he’s seeing huge opportunities in “AAA Rated” China growth stocks… … and in order to convince you to subscribe, he’s dropping some hints to whet your appetite for […]

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 […]

China stocks are back, but China newsletters not so much. That’s a little bit unusual, actually — typically, newsletter publishers are quick to produce new “niche” letters or repurpose faltering letters to take advantage of big swings in the market, and just as quick to shut those newsletters down if that “niche” loses the interest […]

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 […]

Here’s how Louis Navellier pitches his next uber-hot idea for a stock that gives you three phone numbers on one phone and 10-bagger profits: “Last May I told you about a new wireless juggernaut whose 3-in-one proprietary technology and earnings growth matched Envirodyne, which handed us a monster 1,700% gain a few years back. “Since […]

Here’s the top of the tease that I just got in my email from Nicholas Vardy, trying to get me to subscribe to his Global Bull Market Alert ($995/year, in case you’re wondering): “On November 15th, a Top Chinese Internet Company’s Announcement Could Send Its Stock Soaring “While China’s economy levels off, its Internet sector […]

Today we again visit our friends from the Motley Fool, and they transport us to the Middle Kingdom with a teaser chock full of Chinese stock ideas. The teaser comes in an ad for the Fool’s Global Gains newsletter from Tim Hanson, and it’s all about the Chinese consumer. They’ll send you a special report […]

The folks at Euro Pacific Capital, led by senatorial candidate Peter Schiff, are looking for clients for their international-focused brokerage house, which generally solicits US clients for building accounts focused on dividend-paying foreign stocks and precious metals, in keeping with Schiff’s basic strategies (which as far as I can tell is, in brief: dollar will […]

Todays tempting teaser travels toward the Thinkolator thanks to the Inside Strategist, the Stansberry newsletter, edited by Braden Copeland, that focuses on stocks that show patterns of insider buying. As we’ve noted many times when looking at teasers from this and other insider-focused newsletters, there’s a good reason to track insider buying: on average, it […]

Today’s exercise in hyperbole comes from the folks at Lombardi Publishing — they’re trying to get you to subscribe to their VIP Fast Track newsletter, which I’ve never heard of before (each of their editors seems to have almost a half-dozen newsletters, perhaps they’re just throwing them out to see what will stick … like […]

This ad came in fast and hard over the weekend, behind the full marketing might of the folks at Investorplace in service of Asia Edge, Robert Hsu’s more expensive pan-Asia newsletter. And it looks like they’re using some of the tested and (one assumes) successful marketing strategies that got Louis Navellier a lot of attention […]

This is a little quickie from Green Chip International, a newsletter that is, like so many others, apparently boasting of more big discounts in their subscription rate — don’t know if anyone ever actually paid the “official” $995 subscription rate, but now they’re trying to get you to subscribe for $300. Still, that’s quite a handful of greenbacks for a newsletter that hasn’t had much opportunity to prove itself yet — so let’s see if we can figure out some of what they’re touting for us today. The big spiel is all about what they’re calling … “China’s $555 Billion ‘Environmental Liability Insurance’ …”

Yesterday I shared a look at one stock Paul Tracy is teasing us with as a stock with great catalysts that should boost the stock price — today, let’s take a look at the second one he focused on in that ad. Now he’s talking about a Chinese Power Generator which, like the shipper we looked at yesterday, has a “five star” catalyst rating in his proprietary system. It’s also got a nice dividend — interested?

You might have seen this one circulating lately — it’s an ad for Ann Sosnowski’s MicroCap Hotsheet (Ann still sits at the top of the Gumshoe spreadsheet with her Lynas pick … though if you average in her other teaser companies we’d probably be looking at something much more average). It’s for a Chinese company […]

I was just starting to look for this one, the latest teaser from Ann Sosnowski over at Taipan (it came in as today’s “Chart of the Day” teaser, but newshidden over at the forum beat me to it. It’s all about some kind of agricultural commodity trader/producer in China that benefits from inflating prices internationally […]

A few of you have called my attention to a teaser that’s been making the rounds recently, from Steve Sjuggerud, for the Sjuggerud Confidential newsletter ($1,000). He’s saying that he has found a penny stock that is safe enough for him to recommend, and it’s a Macau property play. Unfortunately, the clues given are extraordinarily […]
