The first version of this article was published on February 21, 2020. We’re still getting questions about it, the ad is still running and appears unchanged, and we’ve updated the article to catch up to speed and check on the current prospects. This is from an email I received from J.R. Butts, pointing at a […]
Entry-level monthly stock-picking newsletter from StreetAuthority.
So what’s been happening since I last wrote to you, dear Irregulars? I’ve got a couple teaser picks to reveal for you in a moment, but first there are a few thoughts to get off the ol’ Gumshoe chest. We’ve seen a nice recovery from the healthcare REITs, which are still quite reasonably priced (DOC, […]
This article was originally published in late January — Andy Obermueller is teasing Apple suppliers again, hinting that the Apple “Growth Window” will close up on September 30 (presumably when we start freaking out about their next wave of iPhones and iPads, usually introduced around then), and the descriptions of the teased stocks that he […]
Advisory that recommends specific trades to generate income by selling options.
Twice per month newsletter.
Double-digit income yields catch the attention of investors in any environment, but that’s especially true these days — savings accounts yield a fraction of a percent, typing up your money in bonds or CDs for a few years likely means you’ll actually lose money after you account for even low inflation, and the average big […]
Andy Obermueller writes the Game-Changing Stocks newsletter for StreetAuthority, which is either new or renamed as far as I can tell (it looks like it might have replaced his Government-Driven Investing), and he’s been teasing us with a spiel about the hottest investment opportunities for next year — hoping to get on early, I guess, […]
Growth and breakout-potential stock picking newsletter.
Elliott Gue will be a familiar name to longtime Gumshoe readers — he’s been a fixture in newsletter land for as long as we’ve been around (Stock Gumshoe’s sixth birthday was a couple months ago, thanks very much), and he’s got a new home. He ran the venerable Personal Finance letter for a while and […]
We’ve gotten a bunch of questions recently about this pitch from Nathan Slaughter about gas to liquids technology and the “death of OPEC,” so I’m sharing an excerpt from the Friday File article about this teaser that we published a little over three weeks ago for the Irregulars. Don’t worry, it’s the meat of the […]
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 […]
“Premium” trading advisory service from Michael Turner
Natural resources-focused newsletter looks for “supply and demand crunches”.
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 […]
Today, dearest Irregulars, I’ve been a bit thwarted in my efforts to find new and intriguing investment ideas for you — that is, I’ve found some, certainly (they’re always out there), but they haven’t matched the template for what I generally like to share with my favorite readers (yes, that’s you). The first one I […]
Today’s teaser ad comes in from Nathan Slaughter, who’s trying to entice us to subscribe to his Scarcity & Real Wealth newsletter, a new offering from the StreetAuthority folks that’s focused, as you can probably guess, on investing in mining, energy and commodities. And though the ad has been running for about two weeks as […]
This teaser for one of Andy Obermueller’s newsletters has been making the rounds for a while, but it has so many aggressive predictions in it that the questions about it roll in to Stock Gumshoe HQ pretty regularly … so let’s see if we can pick out a few of his hot “investment opportunities,” shall […]
The folks at StreetAuthority are running a teaser along the same lines of several they’ve run in the past, one that touts the “rarest securities on earth” — these are Enhanced Income Securities, they are sold by different names but essentially are just stapled securities, a high-yield bond tacked on to a share of stock, […]
I haven’t written much about Amy Calistri’s newsletter, Stock of the Month from StreetAuthority, but her latest teaser caught my attention — and it’s a stock she says she’s buying for her “real money” portfolio this afternoon, so it’s at least timely. Stock of the Month is currently one of the top-ranked newsletters over at […]
We haven’t taken a gander at any silver stocks in a while now, but the metal’s price is still holding up pretty well after a nice move of 50% or so from the summer lows, and the “poor man’s gold” is getting plenty of attention as an inflation hedge, an industrial metal, and a possible […]
Monthly newsletter identifying one pick per issue, along with irregular email alerts.
Focuses on high dividend stocks, trusts, closed end funds and other high income securities. Formerly edited by Carla Pasternak.
There has been a flurry of ads from the several newsletters that specialize in ETF selection (ETFs are exchange traded funds, for those who might not know — they’re more or less like regular mutual funds, but are listed on a major exchange and traded throughout the day, and usually track an index), and many […]
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 […]
