This article was originally published on December 1, 2020, but we’re seeing new versions with different headlines and that “March 2021” deadline, so we’re re-publishing our comments below. What follows has not been updated or revised in the past month. Lou Basenese is pitching Elon Musk’s next big idea in ads for his Trend Trader […]
Our office is closed today for the holiday, but since we’re getting a bunch of new questions about a Motley Fool 5G pitch heading into tomorrow’s iPhone release event, I thought I’d at least share a teaser solution that I (half-heartedly, I admit) included in a Friday File for the Irregulars a few weeks ago… […]
I haven’t written about a Lou Basenese teaser pitch for a while, so a few reader questions about his latest “perfect 5G stock” teaser sent me down the road we’ll travel today. The ad I’m looking at is for Baseneses’ Trend Trader newsletter ($149/yr), and he has worked with a variety of publishers over the […]
Weekly options trading service, seems to typically recommend options spread trades on either large cap stocks or indexes.
“An entirely new digital currency will hit the net on August 28 “It will rapidly replace ALL current “crypto-currencies”… and then ring the funeral bell for the mighty U.S. dollar “Profits on this new currency are completely uncapped (unlike Bitcoin)… and based on past modeling, I predict they’ll be 1,000 times higher than we’ve ever […]
New cryptocurrency trading service launched in August 2017, aims to recommend 2-3 trades in cryptocurrencies per month based on the currency expertise of Martin Hutchinson. Sold on a no-refunds, up-front basis for $3,000 with recurring annual “maintenance fees” thereafter.
Lou Basenese has a new service over at Agora called The Takeover Alert ($1,750), and he’s all but promising that he can identify takeover targets in advance… and give you the chance to make $29,000 profits from stocks that surge dramatically in just a day. To which the first response from any reader should be, […]
New service that aims to use Louis Basenese’s “M.A.R.K.E.D” methodology to identify stocks that are on the verge of being takeover targets. Basenese had a similar newsletter called The Takeover Trader several years ago.
[ed. note: This article was first published on December 3, 2015. The ad has been running again in similar form, and with similar hints about the “secret” company being teased, so we’re republishing this solution to help answer some reader questions. We have not re-analyzed the stock, and the article has not been updated or […]
We’ve certainly seen our share of “next breakthrough” promises from Louis Basenese — he has worked for a variety of publishers (mostly under the Agora umbrella, I think) and is now promoting a service that he calls VentureCap Strategist, published by Wall Street Daily, and now he’s dangling his take on virtual reality in front […]
I almost can’t even write about this one without laughing. That headline is not made up, Robert Williams has a pitch out that compares his silly “open letter” to the head of the European Commission threatening an absurd “class action” suit to get rid of the Euro, to Gandhi’s letter shaming Hitler, Einstein’s letter to […]
Technology-focused letter by Louis Basenese, promises to look for “the most explosive ways to profit from the world’s most transformational technology trends.”
Louis Basenese runs (or used to run, their website now has Greg Miller as the head) a service he calls VentureCap Strategist for Wall Street Daily, and readers have been writing in with questions about one of his ads off and on for a few weeks now — I don’t know that it’s in circulation […]
“America’s Most Elite Investment Collective Just Netted 67,350% Gains… “And it’s about to do it again! “Thanks to a proprietary investment ranking tool, this group has its hands on a game-changing technology… “And it’s about to take early investors for another ridiculous profit ride “They’re called the Midas Supergroup… “And they DO NOT miss. “When […]
Trading Service by Wall Street Daily.
The LATEST company to enter the 4th Quadrant… Fire. We still use it just like the first caveman did. There’ve been no significant advancements in fire in, well… forever! Hard to believe, isn’t it? With the inside scoop on recent testing, though, fire will never be the same. I really don’t want to write an […]
I like little stocks. I like small caps, I like to dabble in microcap stocks from time to time, and it’s definitely more fun to sniffle around the edges of the market and research stocks you’ve never heard of before than it is to read yet another article about Apple (AAPL) or ExxonMobil (XOM). But […]
The folks at Wall Street Daily are very active in trying to build up their subscriber lists — and Louis Basenese, who writes the WSD Insider newsletter as well as the more small-cap focused MicroCap Tech Trader, has made a couple of hot picks over the last year or so that have gone up abruptly […]
OK, OK, the questions on this one are getting a bit overwhelming — and I’m afraid that if I don’t cover this one soon the villagers will soon be gathering their fiery torches and marching on Castle Gumshoe … so here goes. Louis Basenese and the folks at Wall Street Daily are pitching his MicroCap […]
Louis Basenese is out with another bold prediction of a huge winner in the speaker world — and the ad promotes a past pick of his as an indication that he can select these kind of fast-breaking stories successfully. No one can pick ’em every time, of course, but we can at least verify that […]
This article was originally published as a Friday File for the Irregulars on August 2. The content below has not been updated or revised, but we can add that they have not yet made any of the substantial inroads in licensing that we’re looking for … and investor enthusiasm for the stock died down substantially […]
Man oh man, nothing beats learning about a deep, dark secret that the fat cats won’t share with you — am I right? That is, at least, the idea behind the promos for WSD Insider that a few of you have been sending my way lately — they’re all about “Penny cap” stocks that will […]
This article was originally published in the Friday File for Irregulars on July 6, it was opened up to all readers on October 11 but has not been edited, updated or otherwise changed. Today we’re taking a look at a new teaser that started running this week, with most folks apparently getting it yesterday or […]
Focuses on trading of tiny technology companies, looking for early investments in disruptive technologies (“gamechangers”).
Here’s the latest pitch from the White Cap Research folks … and yes, they did apparently find a 3-for-1 deal at their local hyperbole store: “Costlier than Madoff … More Scandalous Than Watergate … Harder to Detect Than Al Qaeda. “DECEPTION, INC. “Inside the World’s Greatest Con Game “Where governments and banks are mutual conspirators… […]
Louis Basenese and the folks at White Cap Research are launching a new advisory service that looks for “game changers” in tiny stocks that they think will have hugely disruptive success — the newsletter is called MicroCap Tech Trader and will run you about a thousand bucks a year … but if that sounds a […]
Sometimes a tease comes in as a heavy promo push, sometimes it’s a slightly more subtle pile of hints in a free article that gently suggests that you subscribe to their premium service … today’s item for sleuthification is the latter. Louis Basenese, who is pitching for the White Cap Report, wrote a free article […]
I always like to write about a bear case on a stock, or a put-buying or short-selling teaser, because they’re so rare — most people wouldn’t consider shorting stocks because of the different risk profile and the unfamiliar process, and many folks even think there’s something vaguely un-American about betting against a stock. And, of […]
Monthly investment letter that aims to recommend advanced small and mid cap tech companies, as well as contrarian and value ideas. Replaced the similarly focused White Cap Report newsletter when the publisher changed names.
The merry lads at the Oxford Club are at it again, promoting their subscription service with a nice long teaser ad that promises to turn you on to the next hot investing strategy. And as usual, there’s a little truth and a lot of obfuscation — so let’s give it a look. Here’s how they […]
I do miss the heady, fun days of the bull market, when you could get excited about a nice lil’ teaser about a growth stock that promised 1,000% returns … those were good times. Now, unfortunately, it seems that individual investors are getting a little smarter — they’ve seen that a promise of a 500% […]
