Today, thanks to popular demand, we’re digging into a new teaser pitch from Christian DeHaemer’s Bull & Bust Report ($99/yr) — most of the pitch is really about how the government is going to “ban” Bitcoin starting on June 16, but the bigger picture spiel is about what that means for blockchain… and for the […]
Anyone seen this one yet? Chris states, “Since 1996, I’ve shown readers like you the fastest, safest ways to make money and grow their retirement savings.” Anyone have an idea of what “back door” blockchain he may be talking about? Or, have experience with his Bull and Bust Report? Thanks in advance.
This spiel from Christian DeHaemer touches on many of the “trend” stories that investment pundits have been talking about in recent years, with a pitch about the “new normal” and the five big trends that will make you rich. It’s an ad for his Bull and Bust Report newsletter ($99 for the first year, renews […]
A version of this story first appeared on January 22, when we first saw Christian DeHaemer’s ad. The ad has been very lightly updated in recent months and is being heavily promoted now, so I’ve gone through and updated this article and my thinking to reflect the coronavirus collapse and any updates the companies have […]
Christian DeHaemer’s Bull and Bust Report ($99/yr) is out with a pitch about “Chaos in the Global Shipping Markets” that has gotten the attention of a bunch of Gumshoe readers — and it is based on something real that’s happening, so I thought we’d dig in and take a quick look today. The spiel is, […]
The headline of the latest ad for Bull and Bust Report was pretty much all we needed to predict that a bunch of readers would ask about this ad: “How America’s 5G Revolution Just Opened a $12 Trillion Reservoir of Cash For Investors Everywhere “Right now, THREE unknown companies have a stranglehold on the entire […]
Christian DeHaemer’s latest ad pitch for his entry level commodities-focused newsletter Bull and Bust Report ($49/year, used to be called Bubble and Bust Report) is all about coal… with the big premise that President Trump is behind coal and will be forcing the Chinese to buy a lot of U.S. coal as part of any […]
And now for something completely different… since it’s been a nutty week in the markets, I’m going to cover a teaser pitch that doesn’t have much to do with Chinese growth fears, interest rates, gold prices, or momentum stock valuations: This one’s all about space. Which itself is in the news today, thanks to the […]
Monthly stock-picking newsletter, priced as an entry-level letter — says it aims to help readers “profit from… bubbles… and escape the subsequent busts.” Formerly called Bubble and Bust Report.
These are the kinds of ads that we used to see all the time, during the fun and exciting days when oil was first headed toward $100 a barrel… there’s not so much of that “next Bakken” talk anymore, given the softness in the oil markets, but perhaps that’s a reason to look more closely. […]
Apparently, there’s some kind of profit window that “slams shut” on September 30th, according to Christian DeHaemer, and you have to buy this $3 “disruptive technology” stock before then. So what the heck is he talking about? Let’s investigate… The pitch is for Crisis and Opportunity (now being sold at $1,599/year), and it’s all about […]
There’s no shortage of long-winded teaser pitches to sit through today, but we haven’t looked at an energy teaser in a while… so let’s check out this latest spiel from Christian DeHaemer about “Energy Megafields” and see if the Thinkolator can identify some interesting oil and gas stocks for you to research. We’ve looked at […]
No, you’re not getting any free money. OK, maybe that’s not fair — but I like to put that disclaimer up front, for those who haven’t been around Stock Gumshoe very long and might mistakenly believe that the marketing craziness put out by the investment newsletters is somehow a fair reflection of reality. Christian Dehaemer […]
Christian DeHaemer was an eager evangelist for “blood in the streets” investing many years ago, when we first started covering his hyped-up hints about earthshaking discoveries and — but it’s not the the Rothschild “buy when there’s blood in the streets” dictum, it’s quite a bit more literal. He has long talked of buying stocks […]
I haven’t written about a Christian DeHaemer pitch in a while, so this one popped to the top of our list today when a few readers asked about it. And part of the pitch is similar to others we’ve seen about the “death of cable” — all about the cord cutters, and about the fact […]
What follows is the teaser solution that appeared as part of a Friday File about six months ago — a story about “Saddam’s Lost Oil.” The ad is still circulating, it has changed a bit in tone and text but is pretty clearly still teasing the same oil company operating in Kurdistan. This first appeared […]
I’ve got a half dozen notes and comments on companies I own and follow for your Friday File pleasure today, but first I want to toss out a teaser solution for you to chew on… it’s a fun one. The pitch is from Keith Kohl for his new High Yield Energy Report, a newsletter that […]
This ad is a little bit less relevant now than it was when DeHaemer and his copywriters first wrote up the ad, presumably a few months ago, but the ad is circulating heavily and I’m getting questions about it today — and it is, in truth, an interesting idea that I thought you might like […]
This article was originally published on November 13, 2013. The ad is circulating again and generating questions from readers, so we’re re-running it for you — the ad is still largely unchanged, and the three “secret” companies are still the same. The largest, FANUY, has matched the S&P with a 9% gain since the article […]
[ed note: We got a lot of questions about this pitch after we solved a different DeHaemer teaser yesterday, so we’ve brought it up for all to see again. The stock spiked up in the Spring, a few months after this article first ran back in January, but has come back down to a bit […]
Christian DeHaemer has a new ad out about a revolutionary new form of energy that he says will net you massive gains thanks to a “wonder vein” energy discovery in Idaho. It’s really not about this “wonder vein,” though — the discovery of this fuel in Idaho is perhaps a big deal for other companies […]
Christian DeHaemer is pushing a newsletter called Technology & Opportunity with the idea that you can “Ride the Robot Revolution” and make massive gains, just like getting in early on the computer revolution by buying Apple, Microsoft or Dell 30 years ago. And I think it’s a new letter, though I’m not certain — it’s […]
Small-cap technology newsletter aims to “buy advanced, unproven technology stocks on the cheap – and sell when they become proven and are being snatched up by the great unwashed masses.” Previously edited by Christian DeHaemer.
Now that we’re putting June to bed, I thought I’d take just a minute to check on the stocks we’ve revealed over the first half of 2013 and see what’s happening. As you probably know, we track the prices of each of the stocks we uncover from the hyped teaser promotions — almost all of […]
The Bakken formation in North Dakota has made plenty of millionaires, not just among the ranchers who owned those cold and dusty acres in the decades before shale oil production became feasible, but for those who invested early in the companies that made the best discoveries or gobbled up the best acreage. And the Bakken […]
Almost every ad that refers to options in some oblique and secret way likes to throw in the fact that this is now a sector that is “regulated by the U.S. Government” … but it it “used to be illegal.” Which makes it sound both more exciting, and safer, than it is really is for […]
It’s like sweet, sweet music in the ear of the gold enthusiast: “The Secret Return to the Gold Standard “A silent conspiracy will make gold a new currency on January 1st 2013. Central banks and governments are buying gold by the metric ton… “If you hold any dollars, here’s what you must do now to […]
I promised yesterday that I’d try to work through the rest of Christian DeHaemer’s “Network Leveraged Entity” teasers that are supposedly better buys than facebook for those looking to speculate on the impact of facebook’s IPO. So what are they? Well, let’s look at the teaser hints — this is “Number Two:” (and don’t worry, […]
The “Don’t buy Facebook’s IPO” bit is not from me, just to be clear — I doubt I’ll want to pay whatever the price is that FB costs when it’s actually trading on Friday (if it goes through as expected), but if I could get shares in the actual initial offering at the offering price, […]
I wrote a few weeks ago about Christian DeHaemer’s “Ring of Fire” teaser that was all about the revolution in hydrofracking and the huge natural gas profits that will come to folks who buy his favorite stocks. And yes, if you remember, he wasn’t pitching the actual natural gas producers (that’s a bold and contrarian […]
Christian DeHaemer appears to have gotten a bit of a reputation in the great Gumshoe Universe — readers started asking me about this pitch before I’d even seen it, which is rare, indeed. And perhaps they’re not to be blamed — he and his colleagues over at Angel Publishing (Nick Hodge, et al) have been […]
Christian DeHaemer is perhaps more active than any other newsletter guy I know in his pursuit of the out-of-the-way and dangerous natural resources companies — which means the picks he puts out as teasers for his Crisis and Opportunity newsletter (and previously, with his Crisis Trader for a different publisher) can be even more volatile […]
Newsletter formerly edited by Andrew Mickey and Christian DeHaemer — reconstituted as a new letter with new editor, American Wealth Underground, in 2010.
“Special Situations” newsletter founded by Christian DeHaemer, appears to now be defunct.
Your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe is still working feverishly on the new and improved StockGumshoe.com that we hope to be introducing in the weeks to come, so today we’re sharing an older article that originally appeared in the Irregulars-only Friday File. I’ve shortened the article to remove some of my blather, but it has not been […]
Christian DeHaemer has made quite a career out of picking somewhat controversial resource companies with tiny market caps in war-torn or politically unstable or distasteful areas of the world — and since two of them that he has teased in the past, Petro Matad in Mongolia and Dragon Oil in Turkmenistan, have done very very […]
One of the all-time best-performing ideas in the history of stock teasers, right up there with NetFlix and Skyworth Digital, came to us from Christian DeHaemer as the first salvo in the enthusiastic battle of Mongolia’s resources. I first wrote about this pick of his back in February of 2010, when it was one of […]
Today I’m running late for a performance by one of my fabulously talented children, so I have to give you just a brief answer and open up the floor for questions and comments — let you, in short, do the research without much of a head start from me. I can, however, at least tell […]
I can’t tell you that Christian DeHaemer, who’s now one of the editors of Energy and Capital and runs the Crisis and Opportunity newsletter for those same publishers, is pushing Somali oil right now — but I can say that an offhand aside he threw into a recent free article had lots of my readers […]
This is a fun one to start off the week with — Christian DeHaemer, who writes the Crisis and Opportunity newsletter that got us all so gaga over Mongolia early this year has a new pick to tease for us that he calls “God’s Chosen Investment” (that Mongolian oil push continues, by the way, my […]
This article was originally published in February, it has been “lightly updated” in honor of the teaser ad’s resurgence in my email box. This teaser ad looks like it’s the launch of a new service from Christian DeHaemer, who has blessed us with a great many “Indiana Jones” teasers over the years, talking about the […]
The teaser ad that has been buoyant enough to float to the top of the tank today is a good one for a Friday File treatment — it’s a stock that trades in low volume and has a low market cap, and I always worry about writing about such stocks when sharing things with the […]
Looks for opportunities in beaten-down stocks around the world, similar to his previous newsletter Crisis Trader from a different publisher.
This is a situation perfect for Christian DeHaemer’s Crisis Trader newsletter — a hostile environment, an unmet need, lots of shooting and fighting, just the kind of stuff his copywriters eat up. But this time, it’s not about extracting nickel or oil from a politically sensitive area or building a copper mine during a shootout, […]
Well, is anyone tired of the “Great Red Oil War” yet? Wake up! We’re closing it out today with what Christian DeHaemer calls “the biggest potential boomer of the bunch.” If you missed installments one and two — which would be terribly sad, after the fun we’ve had — those articles are here (the Kurdistan/West […]
“RED PROFIT TARGET #2: Small oil firm scores big dark continent ‘gusher’ “’Gusher.’ That’s exactly the word the Financial Times recently used to describe this company’s 2 billion-barrel oil find in Uganda — the largest in sub-Saharan Africa in a decade…” That’s the beginning of our little teaser for the second “Great Red Oil War” […]
Now this is an ad! I love the political baiting and the scaremongering, especially when it’s about the “Reds” — good stuff. The ad we’re looking at, if you’re just back from a trip to the International Space Station and you happened to miss it, is from Christian DeHaemer for his Crisis Trader newsletter … […]
Today we’re again hearing from old friend Christian DeHaemer (“old friend” as in, “don’t even know what he looks like and have never spoken to him but read lots of his ads”) — he’s selling his BreakAway Investor newsletter with this pitch … “On March 31st, 2009, The “EMN Initiative” Goes Live “A Historic Government […]
Options service looking for rapid profit opportunities.
“On January 21st, Crude Oil’s ‘Bounce Multiplier’ Kicks In… A first-in-history mix of factors offers you a brief chance to gain 190 times your money from the biggest petroleum price-rebound of all time.” That’s how Christian DeHaemer gets our juices flowing for his current pick of an obscure little oil company … what’s he talking about?
This ad comes in from the good folks at Breakaway Investor, which has jettisoned its old editor and is now run by Christian DeHaemer. Breakaway Investor under Andrew Mickey was extremely active in the teaser game, sending out email ads very aggressively, and it appears that’s not likely to change. Here’s the intro: “As I […]
The fact that the financial world is coming apart at the seams doesn’t seem to be slowing down the newsletters — I don’t know whether their advice is going to help you keep your portfolio intact while all about you are losing theirs, but they certainly think that the US investors is desperate for advice […]
“An evil tyrant’s demise offers you a chance to gain 12 times your money instantly — or turn five grand into $950,000 or more — as the coveted gas reserves he controlled finally get tapped…” I’ve spent a fair amount of time in the last couple years looking at the ads from Christian DeHaemer’s Crisis […]
I enjoyed reading all the comments about Monsanto in yesterday’s article — there certainly are strong opinions on both sides of the broad debate over genetically modified food products, and it’s great to see some back and forth that remained civil and thoughtful. Great stuff! So now we move on to something a little less […]
On a day when the faces walking by my house on their way to work at Fannie Mae headquarters are looking a little bit glum and uncertain, let’s stroll over to an entirely different section of the investing neighborhood. This is the subject line that has been filling up my inbox of late: “Controversial ‘Relief […]
I haven’t looked at an investment teaser from Christian DeHaemer’s Crisis Trader in a while, but he usually has some interesting ones — he wrote to us late last year about lifting the blockade in the gunboat basin, and for some of his other newsletters he spun tales of a secret nickel project in the […]
This one’s from Christian DeHaemer for Material Profit, one of the “introductory” inexpensive newsletters from Taipan (on sale for $49 at the moment, apparently). This group is no stranger to your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe, but I don’t think I’ve looked at one from Material Profit before (I’ve looked at many from DeHaemer’s other services, most […]
Once again, Streetsifter has scooped the Gumshoe and written up another one for you, this one on a way to “profit from Exxon’s misfortune” and “turn $4 into $45” — just when the Gumshoe runs short on time, our friend Streetsifter seems to pull a great nicely-summarized sleuth job out of his hat for all […]
This one comes to us from Christian DeHaemer at Taipan, whose “reliable source” tells him that this stock could go from $5 to $15 in a matter of months … sounds like something we ought to take a look at, eh? This is an ad for his Volume Spike Alert, by the way — one […]
The following was submitted by loyal Gumshoe reader and Irregular Streetsifter, who has solved and written up a few for us before. Your friendly Gumshoe has done almost no editing, so this is Streetsifter’s work through and through … thanks! Using their words, a “measly dollar” will buy you the solution to the two matching […]
Many of you have been interested in the MEGA-U308 teaser that’s been circulating from GRESSOR and Taipan recently. I’ve had several readers send in the suggested solution to this one, but I wasn’t ever able to confirm with as much certainty as I would like … thanks to the forum, though, readers like you can […]
August 11 update: Just a note that this stock, along with Chris DeHaemer’s other resource play Rusina Mining, has taken a significant hit of late. The hit this company is taking is probably almost entirely related to the current debate in the Somali government about setting up a new government oil company and new centralized […]
