Every year we call out a “turkey” stock teaser around Thanksgiving time and poke a bit of fun at some terrible investment ideas… … so it seems only fair to highlight a few winners as well, and this week, when we’re otherwise closed for the holiday, seems a good time to spread some cheer and […]

Today we take a gander at a pitch from Mark Skousen, who has been a newsletter guy for decades with his Forecasts & Strategies newsletter (he’s also an itinerant economics professor, and runs the big “freedomfest” conference in Las Vegas each year, among other things). And the headline of his latest “presentation” pretty well sums […]

Today I decided to sit down for a while with a teaser ad from Dr. Mark Skousen’s Forecasts & Strategies ($50/year) — this letter is actually from his publisher, Roger Michalski, but it focuses on an idea of Skousen’s that he calls “American X”. So what is this secret “American X” company? It’s apparently got […]

Mark Skousen is an old hand in newsletterdom now, and we’ve looked at pitches for his newsletters that are published by Eagle Financial many times over the years, including the “entry level” Forecasts & Strategies letter as well as his more expensive options-focused services. And he’s launching a new service to take advantage of the […]

This is a combo you don’t hear about very often, “founded in the 17th century” and “cancer killing blockbuster” … usually, the little biotechs that newsletters drop hints about are tiny, young, risky, sometimes fly-by-night outfits that are betting it all on a clinical breakthrough. Not this time, apparently. So that’s why my eye was […]

Retirees and those who are near retirement are desperate for income — bond yields are ridiculously low, not just for municipal bonds and Treasuries but for riskier corporate bonds, CD rates are too low to take seriously, even dividends are getting lower as more and more investors overpay for income… so the marketplace is ripe […]

Today’s teasers come in from Mark Skousen, who edits the Forecasts & Strategies newsletter and has graced our pages a few times in the past — most recently when he touted Cubist Pharmaceuticals very aggressively as a “winning lottery ticket” and “superbug killer” (that one did quite well, thanks to both the FDA and a […]

Mark Skousen, who is one of those Ph.D-type doctors (economics) and thankfully doesn’t always insist on being called Dr. Skousen (yes, we’re looking at you Dr. Leeb), is pitching a health care stock today as a teaser for his Forecasts and Strategies newsletter. And like some folks we’ve heard from in the past, he’s teasing […]

Many of you saw this email last week, the latest in a long string of Mark Skousen’s attempts to predict breakout stock performance on earnings dates. His past history of this is spotty, and I’ve written a few times about earnings pops he has predicted — some good, some bad. Alas, I didn’t get a […]

This one opens up with some tantalizing language, of course: “NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY PROMISES TO FLOOD NEW PROFITS INTO THIS HIGH-DIVIDEND PAYING COMPANY!” It’s from Mark Skousen, from his High Income Alert newsletter — and of course, if you’d please subscribe, he’ll tell you the name of this secret telecom stock that’s paying massive dividends […]
