Paul Tracy and the folks at StreetAuthority tend to be very dividend focused — we’ve covered several of their ads that tease long lists of their top picks, many of which are either high-yielding stocks or “blue chip” dividend growth stocks. And there’s always a soft spot in your friendly neighborhood Gumshoe’s heart for a […]
The folks at StreetAuthority delight in lists of “bests” — best stocks for 2011, best stocks for 2012, best stocks to hold forever, we’ve looked at several of them over the years. And now, what we’re being teased with by these folks are “WGB” investments … which, in case you don’t have the patience to […]
There was a lot of interest in the “Top Ten Forever Stocks” that Paul Tracy was pitching last year, partly because people love the idea of a “buy and hold forever” pick that will perform for them just like their grandmother’s 100 shares of IBM from 1962 that bought her a nice condo in Florida […]
Stock Gumshoe readers clearly have a yen to find out which stocks are safe enough to “hold forever” — I wrote about a teaser from Paul Tracy for StreetAuthority’s Top Ten Stocks almost two months ago, but my plans to finish it up and complete the list of stocks for you drifted away in the […]
Paul Tracy of StreetAuthority has been touting a special report he’s selling called “10 Best Stocks to Hold Forever” — he uses the example of the March 2009 market bottom as a great time to buy dominant, dividend-paying multinational companies … … and says that the recent market weakness again points at the opportunity provided […]
This teaser comes in from Paul Tracy at the StreetAuthority family of newsletters, it’s for their High-Yield Investing newsletter that’s edited by Carla Pasternak … and, as so many newsletters do, they’ve taken a fairly commonplace investing strategy and given it a fake and mysterious name. Is that enough to get you to sign up […]
The folks at High Yield Investing have this to offer: “You can thank venture capitalists for your computer, cell phone, solar panel and countless other inventions that have made our lives better… and ground-floor investors filthy rich. Back in the day, if you wanted a piece of the action, all you needed to do was write your own million-dollar check. Not possible for 99.99% of investors. But today, you can buy your way into the exclusive world of venture capitalists for about $7.”
Yesterday I shared a look at one stock Paul Tracy is teasing us with as a stock with great catalysts that should boost the stock price — today, let’s take a look at the second one he focused on in that ad. Now he’s talking about a Chinese Power Generator which, like the shipper we looked at yesterday, has a “five star” catalyst rating in his proprietary system. It’s also got a nice dividend — interested?
Paul Tracy runs the StreetAuthority Market Advisor newsletter, and he has an ad out now about investing only in stocks that have a “driving force” behind them.
He doesn’t mean any technical indicators, or fundamental financial forces, he means catalysts. Catalysts are, of course, the great holy grail of “story” investing — when you buy most biotech stocks, for example, you’re looking for a “catalyst” to drive the shares higher in the form of an FDA approval or a buyout. You’ll hear pundits like Jim Cramer talk about catalysts all the time, too — there are a lot of folks who might be excited about a stock’s valuation or prospects, but are unwilling to buy it if they don’t see an event in the near future that should move the stock abruptly higher (or lower, one must add).
So what are the “catalyst” stocks that Tracy thinks you should look at now?
The ad we’re looking at today is from Street Authority, and I’ve already had one reader send it in with some suggested solutions (she was largely right, of course — one of the many benefits of having the wisest readers in cyberspace!) Today’s selling story is all about wind — which means we have to […]
StreetAuthority is calling a recent buy of Warren Buffett’s “The little stock that could make you rich” — it’s apparently a retailer that Buffett “recently” bought, to the tune of 14 million shares (I’m afraid I can’t sing along at that volume, but I do always like to know what Buffett’s buying). The wise and […]
