Innovative Industrial Properties (IIPR) hit a stop loss yesterday thanks to a sector-wide collapse of marijuana stocks. The big news that hits IIPR directly this week was that MedMen dropped its plan to buy PharmaCann, which is IIPR’s biggest tenant, so I did take the somewhat cautious step of buying a few protective puts just […]

I covered a “powdered plasma” ad from Michael Robinson just yesterday, but it turns out the he’s also flogging “cryogenic blood” separately, in different ads for his same Nova-X Report newsletter, so I thought I better follow up to get rid of any confusion. The Thinkolator concluded that yesterday’s ad, teasing a Pennsylvania company, was […]

The RiskHedge folks are starting a new newsletter called Disruption Investor, and they’d like you to be a “founding subscriber” ($49/yr) — it looks like this will be one of those technology-focused “entry level” newsletters, helmed by Stephen McBride. What do I mean by “entry level?” Some publishers call this their “front end” — they’re […]

Matt McCall’s entry level newsletter Investment Opportunities (currently $49/year) is being advertised with a promised “free” special report about the three stocks you need to own before more states legalize sports betting… perhaps as soon as September 6. What’s so special about September 6? That’s just a guess that more attention will come to this […]

This is not a fundamental look at any of these stocks, but just a quick update on my personal portfolio. Like you, I have many priorities in my life… and some of those priorities changed a bit over the last week or two, so we’re considering some real estate transactions that make it important for […]

This is just a quick note to let the Irregulars know that I’ve added to my holdings in Walt Disney (DIS) after their somewhat tepid quarter and negative investor reaction. I still consider this to be an extremely high quality franchise — the worries about relative weakness in the media networks, particularly ESPN (which typically […]

Today, we take you back to 2012… The Motley Fool is promoting it’s “$2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room” stocks again, and the ad is almost identical to the version that first started circulating in the Fall of 2012. That’s not all that shocking, of course — once a newsletter publisher finds an ad […]

As we enter mid-February and a slow week in Gumshoeland next week, I’ve got a few personal buys of stocks that we’ve mentioned before, and a new “Idea of the Month” candidate that’s maybe not quite ready to buy just yet (we’ll be closed on Monday, and will probably publish less than usual during the […]

Just a quick note to register that I bought a few more shares of Disney (DIS) after the post-earnings dip below $90. I continue to think this blue chip management team and collection of brands and assets is worth owning for the long term, and that current pricing assigns too high a panic level to […]

Each year I go through all of the stocks that I either own personally or have brought to the attention of the Irregulars (there’s quite a bit of overlap on those lists), and I make sure to update my thoughts and opinion on that stock in an organized and, hopefully, disciplined way — that helps […]

When looking into “buy the correction” ideas, a key problem is getting your head around when a stock has finally “blown off” any excess valuation — fundamentals aren’t falling for most stocks, at least not for the stronger, growth-oriented names in the market, but the stocks are falling anyway… why? Well, obviously we have the […]

That’s our pitch today — that the new “themed” technology investments being teased by the Motley Foolians are as good as David Gardner’s push for AOL and Amazon.com back in the days before the Motley Fool published their current Stock Advisor newsletter. The ad letter actually comes in from a different Fool employee, Todd Etter, […]
