Topic Archives: Ray Blanco

What we’re looking at today is a pretty craven repurposing of a dramatically failed teaser pitch, just to let you know that up front.  Ray Blanco’s Catalyst Trader service teased this as their “Tesla Battery Day” stock pick back in September, and anyone who speculated on that happening at the last minute could have lost […]

I got an email today that got my attention. ’The Destruction of Telecom” was the header. It went on to say this… …………..The Man Who First Said: “Buy 5G Stocks” in 2011 Now Warns: “Do NOT Buy One Single 5G Stock Until You See This”…… Well, the email hit me a little late, I already […]

I’ve gotten a few questions about the latest Technology Profits Confidential (currently $79/yr) tease from Ray Blanco, so although it’s a few weeks old now, and started circulating right in the heat of the first coronavirus downturn in mid-March, I thought I’d take a look today. It is still a current ad, I got it […]

Hi, Ray here. I just stumbled upon what could be the world’s biggest pot stock discovery. Right now, you can buy shares for pocket change… But starting as early as TOMORROW, June 1, when I believe massive news about this company could break… Your tiny stake could start to quickly grow into the largest fortune […]

“This Wednesday, September 5 Tuesday, May 28, a group of scientists will take the stage at a prestigious medical conference… “And announce to the world the potential end of disease as we know it.” That’s the attention-getting part of Ray Blanco’s latest teaser ad for his FDA Trader newsletter that Gumshoe readers have been asking […]

Here’s the lead-in to the ad that caught our readers’ attention this week: “This ‘Perfect Storm’ Stock Is Set to Deliver Big Pharma a Swift and Devastating DEATHBLOW It Won’t Come Back From… “And Launch This Little Company on A 72-Hour, $8.98 Billion All-Out SPRINT” And there’s a deadline… today, in fact, when there will […]

Another day, another promise of imminent riches from a biotech clinical trial! This time it’s from Ray Blanco, who has made many such promises in his ads, and the pitch is all about a “bio switch” that has the potential to “end diabetes, plus heart & kidney disease (with a twice-a-day pill).” What more could […]

Ray Blanco makes (part of) his living looking for biotech moonshots, like most biotech-focused newsletter writers — and like his predecessor at Agora’s biotech and emerging tech-focused newsletter Breakthrough Technology Alert, he has often touted companies that are trying to end the scourge of Alzheimer’s Disease. Why? Well, two main reasons: First, and by far […]

“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 […]

This is the intro that was catching the attention of Gumshoe readers over the weekend, from an ad for Ray Blanco’s Breakthrough Technology Alert ($2,000/yr, no refunds): “THE WORLD’S FASTEST FORTUNE “Tiny company to hit $100 billion valuation faster than any other biotech in history… “Here’s how you can get FREE SHARES* — for potential […]

Today’s article is a lightly updated revision of one that appeared on November 3, 2016, when an earlier “pre-election” version of the same ad was running. The hints about individual stocks are the same in the ad today, as is much of the rest of the language, though back then it was an urgent “pre-election” […]

The latest pitch from Breakthrough Technology Alert, the high-priced tech “upgrade” newsletter from Agora Financial, is certainly over the top… this is how it opens: “Witness a Miracle Made Real “A shocking, exclusive video below reveals the most urgent market story of your lifetime. “Your fast action today could kick off lasting generations of wealth […]

This article was originally published on May 19, and the ad we’re covering has been heavily promoted over the past month, leading up to a big final push before yesterday’s supposed catalyst date of June 13, when Blanco (or his ad copywriter) was certain that Apple would announce some big news about “this tiny company”. […]

ed note: This article was first published on March 31, 2016 — the ad has been changed a little bit and now we’re seeing a version that leads with “Virtual Reality Pornography” and catches your attention that way, though the company being teased and hinted at is still the same. What follows was published on […]

Another biotech teaser for you today — these never seem to stop, perhaps partly because small biotech stocks are almost the only ones, other than little junior miners, that have a legitimate chance of seeing their prospects change dramatically overnight or see rapid 100%, 200%, 500% share price gains on a new discovery or shockingly […]

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 was looking at the photonics chip teaser from Agora Financial again recently, since it’s being heavily teased again to advertise for subscribers to Technology Profits Confidential and the questions are rolling in (you can see that here, I just re-posted it to help answer some of those questions)… …and since that teaser pick, Infinera […]

It’s a tradition to give thanks at this time of the year, and one of the things we are supremely grateful for is the never-ceasing parade of promises that the financial newsletter industry throws our way in their perpetual search for new subscribers. After all, without those overhyped promises in their teaser ads we’d have […]
