Jeff Brown says of his #1 recommendation for Apple’s new “Super-Cycle” is a company whose CEO was a Purdue alum with a graduate degree from MIT. Anyone know who this is? I’ve already identified some of the companies in this teaser as Finisar (FNSR), Corning, and perhaps QCOM (Jeff’s old company), LG and CrowdStrike as […]

The latest Investorplace pitch for Matt McCall’s Investment Opportunities ($99/yr) promises that we can cash in by “joining the Foldable Phone revolution”… and that sounds both fun and lucrative, so let’s check out the ad and see if the Thinkolator can ID his investment ID for you. The dream of a flexible phone screen has […]

There’s no more cyclical stock than a semiconductor stock, and we’re seeing the whipsaw slash through that market now as trade sentiment weakens and pundits begin to see some weakness in the economy, particularly in the employment numbers, and the Federal Reserve fuels that uncertainty by essentially promising a rate cut in their attempt to […]

I haven’t written about this particular ad, but I have seen it circulating over the past couple months… and the questions keep rolling in, so I guess the ad’s still in pretty heavy rotation and it’s time to get some answers for you. The pitch is for Jeff Brown’s The Near Future Report ($99/yr “on […]

This article was originally published on March 26, with an immediate deadline at the time… but the ad is now being recirculated by Marin Katusa with a new April 30 deadline, so we’re re-sharing the teaser solution. The meat of the ad is unchanged, and the article that follows is also unchanged… and we’ve left […]

Here’s the headline of the latest ad from the Casey Research folks… “The One Step the President Must Take to Push the Dow Jones to 50,000 – and GUARANTEE He Wins the Next Election. “This is the Start of the Last Bull Market of Your Life and a Massive Opportunity to Get Rich Before it’s […]

Now that Apple is the largest public company in the world, and the most popular stock, the eagerness with which newsletter guys tout “secret” Apple suppliers is ramping up still more … impressive in itself, since the basic “buy Apple suppliers” pitch has been around and making money for subscription-sellers ever since Synaptics was pitched […]

Sometimes I look back and realize I’ve been a dope. This is one of those times. I’ve been holding and/or actively buying shares of stocks that benefit from the mobile revolution and from the massive consumer businesses the breakthrough products from Apple (iPhone and iPad) have essentially created from scratch over the last couple years […]

I’ve noted a few times in this space that there are some “old tech” companies that have my interest right now — one of them is Corning (GLW), which I bought a month or two ago, and the other that kept coming to the top of my list is Xerox (XRX), so I picked up […]
