Will Yastine’s teased “Hypernet” bring riches as it makes the Internet obsolete?

We so often see ads about how we’re on the verge of the “greatest technological disruption of all time,” with fortunes to be made that recall the gilded-age empires of Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller, and that’s probably my favorite kind of financial pornography:  Daydreaming about the charitable foundations we’ll found, and the universities […]

What’s the $6 Stock Pitched by Jeff Brown for the “#1 Tech Pick of the Decade: The ‘C-V2X’ Revolution?”

I haven’t written about this particular ad, but I have seen it circulating over the past couple months… and the questions keep rolling in, so I guess the ad’s still in pretty heavy rotation and it’s time to get some answers for you. The pitch is for Jeff Brown’s The Near Future Report ($99/yr “on […]

Friday File: 5G Time!

The next wireless standard to be adopted by telecom service providers might be the biggest one since 3G enabled the first real “high speed” data and reasonably useful internet access by smart phones. And new wireless standards are always of interest to investors, not least because the growth of smartphones has tracked the improving networks […]

Ray Blanco’s “Halo-Fi” — What’s his teased “Death to Cable” stock?

“On October 1st, This Weird Rooftop Pod Will Deliver the Death Blow to ‘The Big 3’ Cable Companies… With One Clean Shot” That’s the opener of the latest ad for Ray Blanco’s Technology Profits Confidential, which is selling subscriptions with the promise that you can get rich and shut down America’s most hated companies at […]

What’s Stansberry’s “This Keystone Technology Will Spark the Next Industrial Revolution?”

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 […]

Friday File: Two Sell/Buy Simplifications in Mining, plus more Buffett, a Dating Trade, and thoughts on a dozen other holdings

We’ve seen a long stream of earnings reports and other worthwhile bits of data on Real Money Portfolio stocks since I last wrote to you, including some that actually included some interesting news, so prepare for a lot of quick updates…. Medical Properties Trust (MPW) reported another quarter of ho-hum… pretty much met the forecasts, […]

Friday File Earningspalooza — Data Centers, Auto Electronics, Google and More

NXP Semiconductor (NXPI) and Visteon (VC) both reported results this week, both pretty much in line with what I would have expected and pretty close to analyst estimates (Visteon earnings were well above estimates, revenue well below because analysts have a hard time getting very specific on Visteon quarters — but their big picture remains […]

“‘Sky-Fi’ — Silicon Valley’s $2.2 Trillion Breakthrough Bigger Than The Internet As We Know It”

This ad has been running again and generating a lot of questions from Gumshoe readers, so we’re re-posting the answer here. The article below has not been updated or revised since it was published on July 20, 2015, other than an update to the Irregulars “Quick Take” box and an updated disclosure at the bottom […]

Answered: “How to Profit from Cell Towers Without the Hassle… ” (Dr. David Eifrig)

The following was originally published on November 10 and has not been updated or revised. The teaser ad covered is being circulated again today with a slightly different headline pitch about cellphone royalties, but the balance of the ad (and the teased company) are largely unchanged. —from 11/10/14— Dr. David Eifrig is touting something that […]

“Get in on the ‘Ground Floor’ of America’s Next Great Royalty Business”

It’s like the Stansberry folks know what appeals to your friendly neighborhood Stock Gumshoe… and they just can’t get enough of our coverage. Every time I turn around lately they’re teasing and promoting a different kind of “royalty” company. And I loves me some royalties. Royalty companies are pretty well understood by most investors — […]
