Today brings us another “black box” teaser pitch — we see similar themes across investment teases, and the “black box” is popular… a presentation with some pundit holding up a mysterious box sand saying, “thar be gold!” This time around, it’s Hilary Kramer pitching us as she tries to recruit subscribers to her GameChangers service […]
Travis: Is it possible to track any of her teasers? I rather enjoy reading her thoughts on the state of the US economy vis a vis the coronavirus. But is she really just another ambitious teaser/hawker of specific stocks that are as yet ”undiscovered”?
Growth stocks get all the attention these days, what with talk of a final “melt up” in the market before things finally return to rationality, and “value stocks” have been floundering for years as they’ve failed to capture the attention of investors… so last fall we saw a lot of predictions about the “turn,” the […]
For some reason, the investment newsletter audience (and their publishers) find “anti-aging” pitches quite appealing… maybe it’s because so many of us are reaching those “golden years” and wondering how to extend them without pain or poverty. I’m not quite in the “core” demographic yet at 49, but I’ve got the knees and hips of […]
We see “Amazon can’t beat this one” ads every now and again for retailers — that was part of Oxford Club’s push for Planet Fitness earlier this week, for example — but this one is generating quite a few questions… and I haven’t written about one of Hilary Kramer’s ads for a while, so it […]
This article originally ran on January 29, but must be circulating again in March because we’re getting questions from readers — so we re-share it with you today. In case you’re wondering, this “value” stock is now about 25% lower than it was when this article first hit our pages (and the ad first hit […]
Monthly “value” stock picking service, looks for “undervalued stocks with strong fundamentals” to provide a margin of safety and consistent double-digit returns.
It’s been a while since I looked at a pitch from Hilary Kramer’s GameChangers newsletter, and the topic is certainly timely as we eavesdrop on the UN General Assembly’s chatter about North Korea. Kramer’s last big pitch was for what she called a Mari-Pharma company, one that she said you would “regret for the rest […]
Individual investors are obsessed with marijuana stocks these days, hoping to get in on pot stocks the same way Joe Kennedy got in on whiskey in the days before prohibition was lifted… so it certainly caught our readers eyes when Hilary Kramer started promoting that she has “The One Stock That Could Make You a […]
This article originally appeared on June 25, 2014. It has not been updated or revised. The ad from Hilary Kramer is circulating again now and has also apparently not been updated or revised. The stock teased by Kramer and discussed below is the same, it’s within 5% of where it was in June — it […]
I tried out the ”whole enchilada” package with the Hilary Kramer services; they have titles like ”High Octane Trader,” and ”Game Changers.” Well, I used the advice, and started losing money. The options recommendations in particular were poor; some made money but several lost and the losers were much more detrimental than the winners were […]
Well, we took a brief break yesterday but I’m now back at it — looking at Hilary Kramer’s “Barn Burner” pitches for her Breakout Stocks Under $10 newsletter. The basic idea, if you’ll recall, is that she’s picking low-priced stocks (that’s the “Under $10” part) that she thinks will break out either because they are […]
Hilary Kramer is pretty well known to most Gumshoe readers not just because her publisher, Investorplace, sends us an email promoting her services every couple days, but also because she gets herself on TV fairly often and has written a couple investing books (including one with her fellow newsletter scribe Louis Navellier) — and she […]
Hilary Kramer’s purview is continuing to grow over at Investorplace Media — Louis Navellier has been a little quiet on the marketing front, Robert Hsu is long gone, but I’ve been seeing a lot of Hilary Kramer pitches lately. And the recent one that’s caught a lot of attention from Gumshoe readers is for her […]
Short-term options trading service — several alerts a week, positions often held for just a day or a few days.
I promised I’d keep sniffing around this latest Hilary Kramer teaser for you, so we’ll jump right in. But first, I should note that yes, the headline is stolen from her ad — the lovely Ms. Gumshoe works with lawyers, and I lived in Washington DC for 17 years, which means that some of my […]
The Gumshoe faithful have been asking about Hilary Kramer and her latest teaser pitch, so we’re going to ID at least her “#1” idea here — and possibly we’ll get into the rest of ’em if there’s interest. The basic idea is much like past ads from the Motley Fool and others — that cloud […]
Hospital acquired infections are a huge health care problem — and where there’s a huge problem, there are people trying to make money by solving it. That’s the beauty of the entrepreneurial spirit … and you’ve probably seen various teasers over the years about companies that are trying to “kill the superbugs” and help both […]
Yesterday we took a quick look at one of the stocks teased by Hilary Kramer for her GameChangers newsletter … and since I got started, I can’t seem to help myself, I’m going to go ahead and sniff out another stock teased in the same ad. Why? Well, partly because the lovely Stock Gumshoe readers […]
I haven’t written about one of Hilary Kramer’s “Gamechanger” stocks in a while, so while lots of folks are feeling blue, doldrummy, or just plain pessimistic during the ides of July I thought I’d throw in a little of her optimism for you. She’s teasing a few stocks that she thinks her subscribers should load […]
I’ll admit right up front that there’s something appealing about this company’s service, at least for your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe … who is a bit more roly-poly than he might like. It’s Hilary Kramer pitching to us again, teasing us that she’s recommending a company that can “freeze the fat away” and that should be […]
That provocative headline is there to get your attention, of course — plenty of folks disagree with Warren Buffett on one thing or another, but few believe him to be “mad.” No, what Hilary Kramer is trying to do is to draw your attention to the fact that Buffett finally bought a tech stock, IBM […]
Today’s little tease comes to us from Hilary Kramer, who I briefly wrote about way back before the Gumshoe Vacation (that was the “Apple Killer,” which inspired a bit of discussion). This time she’s telling us that she’s got a “Cancer Killer” that’s ready to break out — and yes, killing cancer certainly sounds more […]
I haven’t sniffed out a HIlary Kramer teaser for a while, and lots of folks have been sending me the latest of her hypetastic ads, so I thought I’d dig into the one that sounded most compelling to me. The ad is for her GameChangers newsletter which, sort of in the mold of the Motley […]
Weekly newsletter that trades low-priced stocks (used to be “Breakout Stocks Under $5” and then “Breakout Stocks Under $10) with “breakout potential” either because they’re at bargain prices, are in turnaround, or are about to get a sudden growth surge.
Happy Holiday! It’s President’s Day here in the U.S., and Family Day up on the Canadian side of the border, so the markets and interwebs are pretty quiet. On this placid day, I thought you might be interested in a look at a teaser I thought I had shared with everyone before — turns out, […]
Every year, on the day before Thanksgiving, I like to dig through the year’s teasers and try to pick one “favorite” as the Turkey of the Year — sometimes the worst performing pick, sometimes the most ridiculous, sometimes just one that stands out in some other silly or unfortunate way. Last year the Turkey was […]
I wrote about Hilary Kramer and her new(ish) GameChangers newsletter for the first time just a couple weeks ago — so it’s certainly too early to judge whether her teaser stocks tend to perform as she predicts (that pick, Metalico, is down about 10% from when I wrote about it … but I don’t hold […]
Well, the questions have been pouring in for months about this newsletter … so finally I’m taking a look. This teaser comes in from Hilary Kramer, urging you to be a charter subscriber to her Breakout Stocks Under $5 newsletter, which looks for, you guessed it, stocks trading under $5 — a category that some […]
