Topic Archives: Dan Ferris

I’ve ended up with a portfolio that’s pretty heavily weighted in “growth” companies in recent years, but I always find myself a little more intrigued by “value investing” ideas — companies with real fundamental earnings power or undervalued assets that trade at a discount to their growth-ier peers. So when some readers sent in questions […]

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 […]

The teaser pitches from Dan Ferris tend to get a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, both because there aren’t all that many of them and because the big Stansberry marketing machine sometimes pushes them pretty hard… and I have a lot of sympathy with Ferris’ general “value investing” strategy, and do sometimes find his […]

We’re closing up shop early today for Veteran’s Day, and in the spirit of the holiday we’re running a membership special today.

These are my notes and instant reactions from a presentation at the Value Investing Congress, the notes below might contain errors, paraphrases, incorrect quotes, or misinterpretations. Dan Ferris, who we have covered many times, is presenting about Altius Minerals (ALS.TO, ATUSF), which he has covered for years and we’ve written about many times (it’s also […]

This one came in recently from Stansberry and Associates, it’s an ad for the S&A Penny Letter from Dan Ferris, who also does the Extreme Value letter. This newsletter focuses on what they call “Penny Stocks,” though personally I think they’ve got a pretty liberal definition of that term. They say they are looking for […]
