So… what’s happenin’ this week? I’m still wrapping my head around whether or not I’m interested in building a position in Coinbase (COIN) (or Voyager (VYGR.CX, VYGVF), or other brokerage/exchange companies in the cryptocurrency space), so I’ve been curious to watch the shares of COIN slowly drift down as Bitcoin prices fall from their highs. […]

Bad news… Dream Finders Homes (DFH) did not partner up with Boston Omaha’s Yellowstone Acquisition SPAC (YSAC) to go public, as I had harbored some small hope they might… but good news, too, because DFH did go public this week, which came as a surprise to me on Thursday, since I hadn’t noticed the original […]

I don’t know what’s going to happen to interest rates, taxes, GDP growth or the stock market, all of which are intertwined, but right now the sentiment expressed by the market seems still to be vaccine-driven optimism about economic recovery from the pandemic, which implies that the renewed push to speed up vaccinations will lead […]

I share Trade Note updates with you, my favorite people, whenever I do any meaningful buying or selling in between Friday Files, but they’re usually shorter notes in the comment threads — today I’ve chugged through a string of relatively small trades that I need to update you on, and I’ve got a few minutes, […]

Over the weekend I got a lot of questions about John Engel’s “Image Mapping” pitch for his Stansberry Innovations Report newsletter ($49, renews at $199), so that’s what we’re tasking the Thinkolator with today… what is this “Image Mapping” technology that he says will make us 5X our money? Stansberry Innovations Report is quite new, […]

Eric Bleeker at the Motley Fool came out with a big “presentation” recently where he walked around the stage pitching a new high-end project that they’re calling Extreme Opportunities: AR — a $999 no refunds one-year subscription to their thinking about augmented reality, starting with a 15-stock model portfolio and including whatever changes or updates […]

This article was originally published on November 13, 2013. The ad is circulating again and generating questions from readers, so we’re re-running it for you — the ad is still largely unchanged, and the three “secret” companies are still the same. The largest, FANUY, has matched the S&P with a 9% gain since the article […]

Louis Navellier started marketing his services late on Tuesday with an email that has the subject line: “Today’s Cut Takes us to the Brink!” In his words, “I have been telling my customers for several weeks now that this is the greatest buying opportunity of our lifetimes. But let me clarify: It’s not as simple as buying any old stock that’s cheap now, it’s about owning a mix of the highest quality stocks. That’s why I have spent the last few weeks creating what I call Action Plan For The Wipeout. Act today and you can put this plan to work for you, beat the market by over 3-to-1 AND be able to look at the morning news without flinching.”

What is his “Action Plan?” Read on for details!
