Today I thought I’d explain what’s being teased in ads for Andy Crowder’s High-Yield Trader Inner Circle service from Wyatt Investment Research… it’s a relatively expensive service, $1,495/year, and does not offer refunds (the guarantee has lots of stipulations, and the reward for complaining and demanding a refund is “you get an extra year” — […]
I enrolled in Stock Gumshoe after reading lot of review comments. I have from my friends about Option trading . Travis , can you please let me know how to do Option trade and some stock which I can use for the same.Any help is much appriciated.
I’m still able to generate some enthusiasm about specific stocks that I think are appealing enough to buy at these prices… but I find it very hard to be optimistic in a macro sense right now, it really feels to me as though the market is whistling past the graveyard and being far too sanguine […]
I am looking for one or more trading partners. Trading is a lonely business. I trade options spreads to reduce my cost, reduce my risk, increase my potential rewards. Anybody interested, please email me at email@example.com. Thanks.

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.
I’m a little sad not to be in Omaha this weekend for the Berkshire meeting, but I’ll be watching some of the Q&A tomorrow to see how Warren and Charlie are looking and try to get some little nuggets of wisdom from them. The biggest news lately from Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B) is that they’re at […]
I’d like to know if anyone has any experience working with Bryan Perry and his Quick Income Trader advisory service. His pitch comes in the form of the ”500% Profit Summit”. It consists of guided covered calls and naked puts against blue chip stocks. Gains are claimed to be anywhere from 40% to 100%, with […]
I notice in Travis real money portfolio there is not much weight on energy related stocks, and corresponding speculation (ie. call). I wonder – if my statement is correct or just an impression, and what are readers thoughts. – what is the main reason of that, if there is any. – and last, if Travis […]
Weekly and monthly put options
Iron Condor Alert Service
Options trade alert service
I’ve gotten quite a few questions recently about “income” and “buy stocks cheap” letters that are clearly veiled hints about put option selling… so I thought I’d take a look at one of them. The ad in question today is from Karim Rahemtulla, who calls himself “The Frugal Millionaire” in this spiel and has been […]
Options trading service from Karim Rahemtulla, recommends “collect income now and buy stocks at a discount” trades that are based on selling put options. Rahemtulla previously recommended options trades at times for Xcelerated Profits Report and has helmed several other newsletters in the past for the Oxford Club and other Agora affiliates.
I’m separating my comments here about hedging out from the rest of my ongoing Annual Review commentary, just for the sake of clarity (the latest missive, on my natural resources-related holdings, is here). I’ve written about hedging before — it tends to be expensive, if it’s effective at all, and it needs to be thoroughly […]
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 […]
The purpose of this thread is to develop an energetic discussion of options trading that is particularly applicable to small biotech stocks as well as other similar small developing companies that have explosive potential. Concurrently I will provide a series of option trading instructional posts, commencing with the basics of options and proceeding through more […]
Service that provides 3 – 10 weekly options recommendations.
It’s been a busy few days in teaserdom, but I think this one edges out most of the others when it comes to the urgent questions we’re getting from readers — Dr. Kent Moors publishes a pricey energy trading newsletter called Energy Inner Circle, and he’s telling potential subscribers that a trade which can make […]
This ad has been circulating for at least a few months in various iterations, and it’s not touting a single stock, but it looks like folks are still interested in learning what Amber Hestla is touting as the “Hestla Heist” for her Income Trader service. This service has been around for about a year and […]
I’ve been seeing a new ad from Amber Mason for the DailyWealth Trader service in the last week or so — it’s all about a special way to earn dividends, but to do so much more quickly. What’s she talking about? Well, I expect we’ll find that this is yet another option-selling pitch (several of […]
We haven’t covered a pick from Dr. Kent Moors for a while, the erstwhile Duquesne professor (actually, not erstwhile — he’s still there) has been a pretty active stock teaser over the last year as he tries to build up the subscription base for his Energy Advantage newsletter (along with a few other higher-priced trading […]
Never does this get boring. Every time thing seem to run a little dry here at Gumshoe HQ, and the reservoir of hypetastic teasers dips a little bit below the intake pipe … well, the flood comes again, regular as the rains (if not quite as seasonal). That’s how it’s been for a thousand teaser […]
A couple variations on this teaser about “black market income” have been rolling around the marketplace for months now — the actual investments are still relatively normal, mainstream-ish companies and strategies, just as they were when the 12% Letter called parts of this “black market income” strategy by other names, which is why I haven’t […]
Dr. David Eifrig is one of the Stansberry writer/editors, and for a couple of years now he has put out the Retirement Millionaire newsletter that seems to be largely focused on ways to get special perqs and discounts as a retireee … as well as a bit of financial commentary and ideas, I’m told (I […]
I originally wrote about “Silver Shots” as teased by Zachary Scheidt for his Velocity Trader about a year and a half ago, but much has changed over that time and an extremely similar ad is running right now, so I thought I should give it another look. Here’s how the teaser sounds: “Silver Hits Critical […]
This tease is itself an echo of a past teaser, though the echo got a bit garbled in the transmission — a bit over a year ago Justice Litle sent around a teaser for his Macro Trader newsletter telling us that a cabal of traders were about to “crash the euro,” and that he had […]
Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve written about this particular investment newsletter from the Stansberry folks, so I thought I should take a look for all the new people we have on board here at Stock Gumshoe over the last six months … and to see if he’s changing up his strategy at […]
Ian Cooper is teasing us about an options trade on a little biotech stock again — you might remember that about a year ago he and a few others were throwing out hyperactive teaser ads regarding Arena Pharmaceuticals, the company with a new weight loss drug that was on the verge of releasing results of […]
“They Scoffed When I Said You Can Collect Instant Cash Just By Punching in My Simple “Money Codes”… “But After 18 Months of Watching the Money Pile Up…” That’s how the ad opens for Lee Lowell’s Instant Money Trader, a trading newsletter that gets pushed pretty heavily from time to time. It’s all about some […]
“Can you really make 6,800%… 12,300%… and 13,900%… all in ONE DAY?” “WANTED “Bold Investors to Test-Drive New ‘Turbo Cap’ Niche Market “Help me prove it’s really possible to turn $5,000 into as much as $1.5 million in the next six months… and I’ll give you a FULL YEAR of our breakthrough new service, Taipan’s […]
The latest teaser ad for Jeff Clark’s S&A Short Report is getting a lot of attention from my readers — it’s all about something they call a “Special Earnings Announcement” (SEA), which essentially means an earnings announcement that stands out as likely to cause an outsized move in the stock, either up or down. Here’s […]
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about this latest ad for Lee Lowell’s new Instant Money Trader — he tells us that this is the “Safest Income Strategy on Earth,” and that it’s the “only strategy that pays you first — without you having to buy anything or pay out any cash whatsoever.” Lowell is […]
There are two great things about being a marketing copywriter — first, if you put it in quotes, you can say almost anything … and second, there are already a thousand successful ideas out there, you don’t need to come up with a new one each time you’re looking for an angle. This time we’re […]
Tom Dyson edits the 12% Letter — a newsletter that, you will probably be unsurprised to hear, aims to recommend investments that provide high income using dividends (and other strategies). His publisher has been pushing out an ad lately that touts their “dividend capture” strategy, which I don’t have the heart to describe yet again […]
One of the introductions to this ad reads thus: “Use this code: CKUCU. “If you go to your brokerage account today… type in stock ticker COF… and enter the code’s 5 letters – you’ll receive $920 within 5 minutes.” But the more fun introduction, the one that’s probably really getting peoples’ attention, is this: “Use […]
I don’t see this very often, but it looks like there’s a little battle brewing between Ian Cooper and Rob Fannon … or probably more precisely, between Stansberry & Associates and Angel Publishing. I don’t know if this has anything to do with it, but the two seem linked in several “sincerest form of flattery” […]
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% […]
I’m sure a number of you have seen the email ad for Karim Rahemtulla’s Strategic Income newsletter … here’s what he promises in exchange for your subscription fee of $1,250: “‘Gibraltar Strategy’ Cranks Out 10-Times More Cash From Stocks Than Dividends” Sounds good, no? It gets better! “On October 16, a handful of income-seekers had […]
Dan Amoss has added a new twist to the “100-F” teaser that I wrote about here a couple months ago, so I’m adding a new twist as well. He’s now calling this “Retirement Recovery Insurance,” and using examples of folks like laid-off auto workers who are using this strategy to make more money than they […]
When the world looks bleak, the skies darken, and the locusts appear to be swarming on CNBC, we can always count on one thing: Newsletter editors will be trying whatever they can to convince you that they see the way forward, or that they have a safe haven for your money. Karim Rahemtulla is no […]
OK, so the vacation rerun pile is getting a little thin here … thought you might be interested in seeing all of the many ads that have been sent in the past year promising that you can get cash payouts that are better than dividends, and easy as pie. These ads all tout one version […]
It’s baaaack! Jeff Clark’s Advanced Income investment newsletter is now being sold using yet another ad that has a clever invented name for his strategy — this time, we’re told that you can make a “market commission” on your stock and pull in money from your broker in just ten minutes. “Beginning right now, you […]
“If you complete and return the 2-page form sampled above, your broker could pay you $2,100 in less than 2 weeks. What’s even more incredible is that soon after you could receive an additional check for about $1,200.” That’s the latest “free money” tease from the folks at Stansberry & Associates — leading us into […]
This teaser starts out with a promising … um, promise: “We just uncovered one of the largest opportunities we’ve ever seen. One of the fat cat financial firms on Wall Street just received some bad news. By June 17, it could be forced by law to reveal some really embarrassing data. That’s not what’s so […]
Just a quick note, since I’ve had quite a few folks write in with questions about this “Tier-2 Equities” teaser for J. Wayne Burritt’s investing newsletter, Easy Money Options. I don’t know what Burritt’s track record might be, and the track record of options services should always be taken with a grain of salt, but […]
This is a new email that people have been sending my way over the past few hours, but for those of you who’ve been around Gumshoedom for a while it will probably sound familiar. The ad is for Jeff Clark’s Advanced Income service from Stansberry & Associates, and it touts two special reports that describe […]
This one comes in from Karim Rahemtulla, and it’s my favorite kind of teaser: The one where they invent a fancy new term for a relatively commonplace investment strategy, and use it to convince you that the newsletter provides a connection to the deep, hidden world of Wall Street that can unlock the riches that […]
