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 […]
This particular ad is of the “Indiana Jones” variety… it spins a yarn of a high-risk adventure, deep in the forbidden jungle, to discover a massive profit opportunity. How can one resist? Well, we’ll try. And the best way to resist a sales pitch, of course, is to understand it. This spiel is from Ray […]
Marijuana-focused higher-price newsletter, stated aim is “to weed through the emerging marijuana industry to find the best, most potentially lucrative penny pot plays on the market.”
Happy Friday! Let’s start you out with my favorite article that I read this past week: Michael Batnick’s Twenty Craziest Investing Facts Ever. Go read it whenever you’re convinced that you know what is going to happen over the next few weeks… or even the next few years. So… what’s going on in the portfolio […]
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 […]
Any one have an idea as to what stock Ray Blanco is referring to in his ”Breakthrough Technology Alert” teaser?
The latest ad from Ray Blanco has been circulating and generating reader questions for about a week, though I just got it in my own email accounts for the first time yesterday evening… about an hour before the purported “catalyst” was about to come. The ad is from Blanco’s FDA Trader (current $1,499, no refunds). […]
Anyone know what penny stock Ray Blanco talks about?
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 […]
Ray Blanco reveals 4 penny stocks to raise six figures.
Ray Blanco seems to love pitching a good “results coming soon” story for his FDA Trader ($1,495, no refunds) newsletter over at Agora, and this one is no different from dozens of others he has touted in the past… though the stock is one I haven’t seen him tease before. OK, fine, yes, I know […]
“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 Wednesday, September 5, 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 legions of Gumshoe readers have been asking about […]
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” […]
This is a bonus weekend “quickie” for you, so it’s not a stock I’m going to go in depth on… but I thought you might want a few moments to think about it while the market’s not open. The promise is absurd, here’s a taste of it from the top of the ad: “ALERT: Agora […]
The furor over gold in the past couple months has now leaked over into biotech land, with the FDA Trader newsletter from Agora Financial now catching your attention with the big bold word “GOLD” even as they pitch a “gold-based oncology protocol” that they say could set you up for 10,000% returns. Sounds a little […]
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 […]
Newsletter promoters LOVE dates — using a specific day in the calendar, preferably a day within the next month or two, gives a sense of urgency to an ad and makes you feel like you have to sign up RIGHT NOW to avoid missing out on the profits that can be made. And Agora is […]
This is a story I’ve written a few times this year, but the questions keep rolling in and the ad keeps getting changed (and, frankly, it seems to me that the ad has been made more aggressive)… so we’re covering it again. And it might be that writing about it again today and calling yet […]
This week I’ve got a little teaser decipherization for you to get us started, and we’ve also got a new piece from Dr. KSS… and I’ve got some updated thoughts on a few other stocks at the end of today’s piece. The teaser? Well, it’s been circulating for a few weeks now, and it caught […]
Ray Blanco is running another ad with a near-term deadline for big anticipated stock movements — last time around, it was the pitch about Energous (WATT) and his conviction that Apple CEO Tim Cook would say something exciting about wireless charging for iPhones at the WWDC this year (that was yesterday, and Cook did no […]
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”. […]
Nikola Tesla has probably gotten more attention in the last five years than at any other time since he passed away during World War 2… for a while it was enough that the car company named after him was a daily headline generator and stock market darling, but now he’s also being connected to work […]
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 know I’ve said this before, and sometimes it’s a lie: I’m going to try to keep this one brief. Agora Financial’s FDA Trader service has a new pitch out — which normally might not get that much attention, since everyone is suddenly terrified of biotech stocks after a brutal month or two — but […]
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 […]
This article was originally published on August 6, 2014 and the ad is circulating again and sending a lot of questions our way. The same stock is being touted and teased, and the original article below has not been updated or revised… the stock teased is up by about 50% since it was first teased, […]
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 […]
Biotech trading advisory/newsletter.
This particular ad hasn’t actually been completely lambasting my inbox this week, which is a surprise since the “cure for obesity” stocks usually gin up quite a bit of interest — being overweight is, after all, the plague of our time of overabundance and the cause of so many of our ills, both social and […]
Focuses on companies with hot new technologies, including biotech and technology stocks. Formerly run by Patrick Cox, who moved on to launch Transformational Technology Alert, a similar letter for Mauldin Economics, and Stephen Petranek and Gerald Celente have also briefly helmed this letter.
