Today we take a gander at a pitch from Mark Skousen, who has been a newsletter guy for decades with his Forecasts & Strategies newsletter (he’s also an itinerant economics professor, and runs the big “freedomfest” conference in Las Vegas each year, among other things). And the headline of his latest “presentation” pretty well sums […]

Today I decided to sit down for a while with a teaser ad from Dr. Mark Skousen’s Forecasts & Strategies ($50/year) — this letter is actually from his publisher, Roger Michalski, but it focuses on an idea of Skousen’s that he calls “American X”.

And like some folks we’ve heard from in the past, he’s teasing […]

Many of you saw this email last week, the latest in a long string of Mark Skousen’s attempts to predict breakout stock performance on earnings dates.
