The latest ad from Louis Navellier for his Growth Investor newsletter is a doozy… they’ve dropped the silly video of Louis with his fancy Porsche and replaced it with a “Trump wants to secure super-fast 5G” headline, but they’ve kept the red “turbo” button imagery from Navellier’s supercar, with that serving as a “you’re too […]

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 […]

The latest ad from Louis Navellier for his Growth Investor newsletter is a doozy… full of images of Louis Navellier driving his midlife crisis Porsche supercar around and showing off the red “turbo” button, with that serving as a “you’re too dumb to get it otherwise” metaphor for the tremendous potential of 5G wireless. We […]

What have we learned about teaser ads over the past decade or so? A lot, I hope, but two lessons stand out: First, dates in teaser ads are often made up and don’t really represent meaningful “catalyst” events, they’re just a way to make you feel rushed and get you to pull out your credit […]

Matt McCall is touting a tiny company that has created a miracle battery that is safe, inexpensive, more powerful, charges super fast, can charge millions of times without degrading, etc. What’s the symbol?

Here’s a bit from the email that Matt McCall sent out introducing his lastest teaser ad: “When it comes down to it, there are really just three ways to get truly rich in the stock market. You can put thousands into the market every year, hold for decades, and retire with a fortune. You can […]

Matt McCall’s entry level newsletter Investment Opportunities (currently $49/year) is being advertised with a promised “free” special report about the three stocks you need to own before more states legalize sports betting… perhaps as soon as September 6. What’s so special about September 6? That’s just a guess that more attention will come to this […]

This is the headline that got a lot of readers’ attention: “WARNING: Do not put a penny into any cryptocurrency until you read this urgent message.” It’s part of an ad for Louis Navellier’s Blue Chip Growth, and he goes on… “If you want to make a fortune in the red-hot cryptocurrency markets, there’s only […]

I’m running out of time today, so you get a quickie: Louis Navellier’s latest “stealth buy” promo, solved for your pleasure… but without any real analysis from me. The ad is for Navellier’s Emerging Growth ($995/yr), and it pushes the possibilities of small caps and the particular appeal of one small “secret” $14 stock that […]

We haven’t looked at a Louis Navellier pitch for a little while, and this one caught the eye of some intrepid Gumshoe readers — it is, like virtually every Louis Navellier pitch, a promise that his favorite growth stock will double this year… though he goes even further in announcing that “long term, a $1,000 […]

Generalist newsletter launched in Spring of 2015, recommending a variety of stocks, including blue chip-type ideas — marketing material says he sometimes “trades around” those positions and uses technical analysis to pick entry and exit points. Payne appears on Fox Business and also runs his own newsletter called Common Sense and a website called Wall […]

FUTR Stands for “Flying Under The Radar” — Matt McCall says he uses screening to identify fundamentally attractive stocks, and technical analysis to find stocks ready to “break out” with a specific catalyst for growth. Two issues a month, two stock recommendations in each issue.

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 […]

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.

Here’s how Louis Navellier pitches his next uber-hot idea for a stock that gives you three phone numbers on one phone and 10-bagger profits: “Last May I told you about a new wireless juggernaut whose 3-in-one proprietary technology and earnings growth matched Envirodyne, which handed us a monster 1,700% gain a few years back. “Since […]

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 […]

“High volatility growth stock” monthly newsletter, has a large recommended portfolio of stocks that screen well for earnings growth, earnings momentum, revenue growth, analyst estimate increases and “beats”, and other metrics Navellier focuses on. Focuses more on Large cap stocks. Navellier’s Quantum Growth was a previous newsletter with a similar strategy.
