I got an invite to join this, probably because I subscribe to a Doug Casey newsletter. Here’s some of the rather sketchy details: —————————————————————————————————————————————— Because of the rules surrounding pre-IPO financings… I cannot reveal too many specific details about Project Gold Rush—save two. First, the company has applied to list on a major exchange. And […]

So… on a day when gold’s taking a big ol’ “breather,” shall we look at a nice hyped-up gold pitch? Why not, right? We can feel a little contrarian, at least for a moment. This is the intro to Bill Shaw’s latest teaser pitch for Commodity Supercycles, which is the entry-level gold and silver newsletter […]

Today we’re looking for yet another “magic metal” stock, this time it’s teased by Matt Badiali for his Real Wealth Strategist newsletter over at Banyan Hill… and it’s all about this magical “green rock” that has some kind of virus-killing power, so the marketers are really highlighting the COVID-19 angle. Here’s a little of the […]

Today I’m throwing in a little bonus article, since it’s an interesting topic, everyone seems to be obsessed with gold again this week (though gold prices took a little tumble yesterday), and a few folks have asked about E.B. Tucker from Casey Research and his “Gold Placements” pitch. If that doesn’t sound familiar, he has […]

This week I’m seeing a new wave of questions about this Jim Rickards ad from Agora, and the ad itself has been (clumsily) updated a few times since we covered it back in November of 2017 (the last version with the “by March 19, 2019” deadline even suggested that Yellen was still President of the […]

“ the company’s CEO… He’s got a stellar track record of growing miners into gold-producing giants… like Kinross Gold, which is now valued at over $6.6 billion… and Placer Dome, which was acquired for $9 billion in 2006.” This is really omthe only clue in his ad.

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 […]

This is a late continuation of the predecessor thread titled: “Gold, Silver, and Hard Assets…FALL 2017”…from which, I quote: “Everyone makes mistakes and I make more than my share.”  Well, I nailed that one. In 2018, overall my picks were not successful.  Many of the mining speculations were duds. Plus the commodity price landscape was […]

Hi Travis and my Irregular Friends, I was just wondering your thoughts on how the price of gold is acting during this downturn. I understand interest rates affect on gold but inflation should help especially if the dollar looses its luster a bit. I just don’t see gold being seen as a safe haven this […]

Frank Curzio has one of those “limited time only” opportunities now for a little gold stock, and he has some pretty outlandish returns to entice us… so let’s sort through his clues and see what he’s talking about. The pitch is for his Curzio Venture Opportunities newsletter, which is the back-end “upgrade” newsletter for Curzio […]

Today we look into the teased “Gold-X” from Gerardo Del Real, who writes the Junior Mining Monthly newsletter and calls himself a “Texas gold expert” … his ad promises an easier way to get huge returns on little gold stocks while taking a lot less risk. “Gold-X” seems an odd name for a “secret” investing […]

That’s the headline of a recent ad from Moe Zulfiqar for his Explosive Mine Stocks, a newsletter that has been published by Lombardi for at least several years (with several different editors). He’s fishing for subscribers for his service, naturally, and using this “tiny stock” and a special offer as bait — so let’s see […]

This is the intro from the ad we’re considering today: “Jim Rickards: Halfway to heaven, in a location with life-threatening temperatures, a little-known company is about to unleash… “‘God’s Gold’ “15 TIMES the concentration of the average global gold mine, this deposit contains arguably the highest-grade gold on the planet. “And one company trading for […]

Yesterday I started looking into the latest James Rickards ad, a gold-related spiel for his Strategic Investment newsletter, and today we’re going to close the loop on that and get a couple more names for you. The full article from yesterday is here, if you’re curious about this whole notion of “Reagan Gold” and the […]

We’ve looked at a lot of Jim Rickards ads over the past couple of years, most of which either promise rapid-fire profits from currency options or predict huge gains for gold and, perhaps, a return to gold-backed money… today’s pitch is another one of the latter, it’s an ad for Rickards’ Strategic Intelligence. The hook […]

Happy Tax Day! (OK, not really — I’m told you get until the 18th because of holidays this year… but still, April 15 holds a special place in our hearts.) I’m coming to you a bit early with your Friday File this morning, since I’ll be traveling later in the day — our publishing schedule […]

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 […]

This teaser wasn’t the core offering of Palm Beach Letter‘s latest pitch for their premium package of services — that was mostly Tom Dyson’s increasingly strident “Income for Life” push — they usually call that the “770 Account,” and they’ve been pushing it for several years now as the only safe way to protect your […]

The folks at Penny Mining Speculator manage to get an awful lot of attention from Gumshoe readers, and they do it with email ads like this one — promising that they’ve found a company with a huge, undeveloped deposit that’s worth hundreds of times more than the stock market is giving them credit for. Sometimes […]

Huh? Are the Canadian Maple Leaf silver coins going to suddenly become twice as valuable as the American Eagle silver coins? No, don’t worry, it’s not that simple and silver is still fungible, an ounce is an ounce is an ounce (well, a troy ounce, anyway). So what’s the idea of “Canadian silver” being somehow […]

We’ve written about John Doody a few times over the years, largely because the Stansberry folks have been promoting his newsletter and therefore spreading the gospel of this former Econ professor turned gold newsletter guru and mining stock millionaire. The letter is called Gold Stock Analyst, though a couple years ago they started to offer […]

It’s been close to two months since I looked at a teaser for the International Speculator from Doug Casey’s folks, and today they’re circulating another interesting little slew of hints about a promising gold stock … one that apparently made them 1,400% returns 15 years ago and has now again become a bargain. So what […]

The latest pitch from Mitchell Clark comes in for the Explosive Mine Stocks newsletter from Lombardi — and I don’t know where the dude finds the time. Clark is apparently now responsible for four or five newsletters at Lombardi, when I’ve written about him in the past he’s tended to focus on small cap stocks […]

This story has been making the rounds for quite a while — and in different versions, I’ve written about essentially this same pitch before … but it’s been years since it really hit the Gumshoe radar, and folks keep asking, so I thought I’d check out this latest version of the ad for you. The […]

Our latest ad rolls in on a tide of resource riches lust — it’s for the new natural resources-focused newsletter from Lombardi called Resource Stock Millionaire … which sounds a lot like their older letter, Explosive Mine Stocks, though this one will be edited by Mitchell Clark (who we’ve written about before, mostly when he’s […]

Most of the chatter we hear about Peter Schiff these days relates to his battle with Linda McMahon for the Republican slot on the ballot for Chris Dodd’s CT Senate seat — but his Euro Pacific Capital brokerage firm is still drumming up business, trying to get new clients who are interested in a traditional […]

“This tiny gold outfit already tripled investor’s money since we first alerted you one year ago! But over the next five minutes, find out how Wednesday’s historic news could triple your money… AGAIN!” That’s how the latest missive for Greg McCoach’s Insider Alert gets started — McCoach also runs a wider-circulation newsletter called Mining Speculator […]

Monthly newsletter on small gold stocks, basic sub has the “top ten” list, “professional” version includes more detailed data on projects, reserves, and analysis of prospects. “Top ten” list of favorite mining stocks each month represents Doody’s model portfolio (usually gold miners, some silver).

Eric Roseman of the Sovereign Society has been blanketing the web with a teaser about a “different way to own gold” — one that he says might give you a discount of as much as $600 an ounce. Here’s what he says … “Recently, I’ve been researching different ways to own gold – and two months ago — I came across a little-known form of the yellow metal. The shocking thing is, it has outperformed “normal” gold investments by a factor of 10… or more!”

Here’s what I can’t tell you: Where the price of gold is going. Here’s what I can tell you: Over the past several weeks, as investor enthusiasm for gold clearly reached the melting point in a big price spike to near $900, I’ve seen almost every gold teaser in the book. Gold is down a bit again today, but the gold bugs are still out in force and certain that they will be vindicated when inflation and dollar devaluation finally rear their ugly heads. What do the experts say now?

“After 98 years of secrecy, the greatest economic conspiracy in history is finally unfolding.” “Learn how you could turn $5,000 into $100,000 (or more) by 2009 with this safe and simple profit/protection plan…” That’s how this latest ad opens, with the threat that the 98-year-old “Jeckyl Island Project” economic conspiracy will ruin your retirement — […]
