Several readers have been asking recently about the “Power Portfolio 2021” pitch from Investorplace (previously known as Power Portfolio 2020), so I thought I’d dig into that for today’s edutainment episode. The service is a two-pundit “upsell” product, currently being sold at $2,499/yr (no refunds) and boasting regular picks that combine the “top down” trend […]

Happy Friday Gumshoes! My inbox has been inundated with Navellier and Fry talking about the “Technochasm”, and how its the thing that will make or break portfolios for years to come. They are touting a “small group of stocks” that will be the biggest winners of this Technochasm event. Any ideas? Thanks

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 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 […]

This is a teaser pitch that we solved back in May of 2018, but folks continue to ask about it… and our older article is getting pretty stale, so we’re digging in for an updated look today. The headline of the ad pretty much says it all: “The little-known Washington D.C. financial “think tank” that […]

Just listened to Louis Navellier’s Accelerated Profits newsletter 52minute pitch. Searched Stock Gumshoe, could not find any articles or discussions on this teaser. Sounds similar to Charles Sizemore of Dent Research Peak Profits newsletter, to which I subscribe to. Accelerated Profits regular $5k annual, promo 70% off = $1495. Louis recommending SELL China and Emerging […]

The latest email ad from Stansberry Research entices us into believing that Stansberry’s got the next gargantuan gainer, like Amazon or Apple… “Nearly two decades ago, one of our analysts covered an obscure online bookstore called Amazon… “And it went on to change how we shop forever. “Today it’s one of the biggest companies on […]

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 always interested to see what kind of big-growth ideas are being teased, particularly in a market that already feels so expensive, so a Cabot pitch caught my eye again this week — this time it’s from Mike Cintolo for Cabot Growth Investor, and this is what grabbed my attention: “My Expectation: A 25% Jump […]

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 […]

Louis Navellier is out with another of his “only a few hours left” promos to drum up new subscribes for his Ultimate Growth newsletter — he says he’s seeing huge opportunities in “AAA Rated” China growth stocks… … and in order to convince you to subscribe, he’s dropping some hints to whet your appetite for […]

Lots of readers have asked about the latest “almost perfect stock” pitch from Louis Navellier for his Blue Chip Growth newsletter (currently $100 a year), so that’s the Thinkolator’s project for today: What is it? Here’s the tantalizing lead-in: “Imagine… a technology company whose product you don’t install, that reduces business costs by billions a […]

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 […]

This one has investors everywhere frothing at the mouth — or at least, that’s how it seems from this end of the email queries your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe is receiving about Louis Navellier’s favorite stock. So at the very least, the copywriters at Investorplace (Navellier’s publisher) are awfully good at catching your eye — they […]

Whenever you’re feeling blue about the market and don’t have the stomach for some Jim Cramer ranting, a nice substitute can be a trip over to Louis Navellier’s world, where there’s always a promise of extraordinary growth somewhere. Today Navellier, a quantitatively-minded growth stock investor (meaning, his system sifts stocks largely based on trends in […]

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 […]

“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.

Most of us are quite familiar with investment newsletters and trading services. I focus on the newsletters that advertise heavily to retail investors, and the most successful type of ad is apparently the “teaser” letter, a well-argued case for a particular stock or investment … that withholds the actual name and ticker until you throw […]

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!

In the few days preceding the last presidential debate between McCain and Obama (which was soooo boring … I was really hoping for more winking, personally), Louis Navellier continued his presidential-themed teaser ad campaigns. Last time around, he was promising that he had written the perfect campaign speech, and that whoever uttered it would be […]
