Investigating Casey’s “Cobalt Blueprint” that teases “86,900% Gains From America’s Next ‘Super Metal'”

Sometimes it seems like investment newsletter teasers run in trends… last week we were inundated with “smart metal” pitches, this week the questions are pouring in about Doug Casey’s “Super Metal.” I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, so many newsletter ads try to implant a short little phrase in your head that harnesses their investing […]

Casey’s “5 Tiny ‘Pot’ Stocks Set to Soar in 2018 Pot Boom” teased in “Become a Marijuana Millionaire in 2018”

This article was originally published on January 11, but the Casey folks are promoting these same five stocks quite similarly with the bait of their “Become a Marijuana Millionaire in 2018” report, focusing on the impending Canadian legalization this summer, so we’re re-posting our January article here to answer some reader questions. The five stocks […]

Doug Casey has been commenting on the ”exploding” effect of a new ”Islamic law” coming by March 31 that will allow Muslims to invest in gold, which has been prohibited by Islamic law until now: https://www.caseyresearch.com/cm/virtually-unknown-gold-trade-to-make-now. (Travis commented on the teaser but only dealt with a push for NAK, the mining company in Alaska put […]

What’s “The Billionaire Gold Syndicate” and why does Frank Curzio think it can return 32X your money?

Frank Curzio is pretty close to my age, I think, but has been a newsletter guy for decades — his dad was a newsletter writer, well-known mostly because he accurately predicted the 1987 crash (presumably in his F.X.C. Newsletter) and got pretty consistent attention from the press for a while because of that, and Frank […]

What’s Nick Hodge’s “Proven Golden ‘Loophole'” that “Magnifies Gold & Silver Gains?”

Nick Hodge is pitching his Early Advantage newsletter (about $800) with a story about a “golden loophole” that he says provides your best path to profits in the precious metals business — and lots of readers have asked me about that “loophole” this morning, so we’re going to put the Thinkolator to work identifying the […]
