It’s Friday and I’m mostly working on my Friday File and Annual Review for the Irregulars, but I couldn’t resist a quickie answer for you on this latest Investorplace pitch… Matt McCall is selling his Early Stage Investor service ($1799, nonrefundable) with a spiel about eight life-changing microcaps in his “Microcap Millionaires Portfolio.” He gives […]
Every year we call out a “turkey” stock teaser around Thanksgiving time and poke a bit of fun at some terrible investment ideas… … so it seems only fair to highlight a few winners as well, and this week, when we’re otherwise closed for the holiday, seems a good time to spread some cheer and […]
Navellier and McCall had a joint presentation on Dec 10, 2019 announcing the Power Portfolio. His subsequent mailings reference a brand new pick to be announced COB 12/19/2019. What was it? Perhaps someone heard. Could you return the favor? I have sat thru presentations in the past and shared some of his picks like ALB […]
Yesterday I started digging in to Matt McCall’s tease about a huge opportunity in Chinese biotech… and, as promised, today I’m finishing the job. The basic premise is that China is pushing to make biopharma a bigger part of its economy in both the current five-year plan and the “made in China 2025” plan, and […]
Matt McCall’s out with another high-priced promo letter that promises the potential for huge gains — this time, by finding the stocks that he thinks will benefit from China’s massive increase in health care spending in the years to come. The ad is for his Early Stage Investor, and he claims to be making a […]
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 […]
The allure of income is overwhelming, and one thing that many small or novice investors have in common is the certitude with which they believe that there’s a “secret” income source out there… a way to just “tap in” to the money that institutional investors are making. That’s why these kinds of “payday” and “weekly […]
Weekly options trading service that focuses on income — primarily, per their ads, selling covered calls on optionable marijuana stocks.
This article was originally published on January 17, 2019. The ad is still in heavy circulation, and we are still getting a lot of questions about it, so we’re re-posting our commentary here. The ad is still dated December 2018, and what follows has also not been updated or revised (the price of the primary […]
Did anyone watch Matt McCall’s teaser April 4th – Marijuana IPO; I did not. ”This pot stock could soar … starting today (April 4th) A little-known, but HUGE event is set to take place in the pot industry TODAY (April 4th). Get in early, and you could turn a tiny grubstake of $250 into a […]
This is an odd one, so be forewarned. A bunch of readers jumped in to ask me about emails coming out of Investorplace that pitch a tiny private company heading into FDA approval as the focus of their “Blockbuster FDA Approval Summit 2019” presentation… and yes, of course, the Mighty, Mighty Thinkolator can tell you […]
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?
This is the intro that drove a lot of readers to send in questions this week: “The Greatest Day in Stock Market History “Thanks to Supreme Court Order 16-476, over $4 billion could move into three very specific stocks—on one day, Feb. 4, 2019. “If you invest now, you could ride share prices up 3x, […]
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 […]
Hello, Gumshoe friends! I’ve been off the grid for a little while, but it’s good to be back — and it’s nice to see the pile of hot, steaming teaser pitches that have larded up my inbox over the past couple weeks. So… which one to look at first? I’ve had a lot of requests […]
Premium-priced monthly newsletter that seeks to recommend small or early-stage investments, launched in 2018.
Matt McCall is pitching a “$200 into $1 million” stock idea as he tries to drum up subsribers for his NexGen Investor… and that sounds fun, right, owning a stock that goes to a million dollars per share? It probably won’t happen, of course, and I don’t know how many times it might have actually […]
Pretty much every newsletter publisher is trying to ride on the “bitcoin mania” with new products and new ads, so this is “bitcoin week” (or “blockchain week”, if you prefer) here at Stock Gumshoe, as we try to ID all of the cryptocurrency investments being hinted at by the latest waves of teaser ads… … […]
Short-term trading service that seems to be distinguished from the similar NexGen Trader by the use of options to “multiply” profits on the “mega trends” they seek.
Entry-level growth stock advisory that focuses on “mega trends” investment themes. Seems to have replaced the former NexGen Investor letter… has a longer holding period than the short-term focused NexGen Trader (now called Moneyline?).
Short-term trading service that focuses on “mega trends” stocks.
As a reformed academic, I have it hard-wired in my brain that work should cease for the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day — Stock Gumshoe will be running on autopilot starting this afternoon, and we’re not likely to have much in the way of new articles posted until next year (unless you want […]
I always try to take at least a quick look when one of the major publishers pushes a new newsletter — this time, it’s Matthew McCall, who has written some tradng books and is apparently a money manager and a bit of a Fox Business News personality, with what he’s calling the FUTR Stocks letter […]
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.
