What are opinions on whether Stansberry and Associates Investment Research is a reputable company?
An array of opinions from our contributors on Stansberry & Associates:
(You can read more reviews on the Stansberry newsletters via the Related links below.)
- There is one simple, logical rule to apply to any "too good to be true" proposition: If a person (usually with no experience necessary) indeed can realize such fantastic returns (also usually with little risk or work), why is the individual or firm that is promoting the scheme trying to make a few bucks selling it to you, usually by unsolicited email? If it were all it's cracked up to be, wouldn't they be spending all their time and money getting rich on the scheme itself rather than trying to sell it to you for relative peanuts?
- No. They use scare tactics to get you to buy their "advice."
- I don't know the answer to this question, but there are websites that have some interesting information about a fine Stansberry received from the Securities Exchange Commission for fraud.
- Stansberry is a controversial figure even in the murky world of investment newsletter publishing. He runs one of the most successful and profitable organizations. But success in this world is not measured by gainful stock recommendations for readers... but by the amount of money generated by promoting their newsletters and services. Stansberry pays his copywriters (ad writers) enormous sums to fluff and puff up what are actually quite pedestrian concepts into promo "packages". I understand they now have a number of lawyers going through the texts to stay within the letter of the law. There is a legal verdict against Stansberry and his organization. I have read it (I think it's on Brian Deer's site), and the tone and wording by the judge are scathing indeed. I have read legal opinions by judges for many years and have never seen anything quite like it.
- Whoever voiced this answer needs to get their facts straight. I have been a subscriber to most of Mr. Stansberry's newsletters for almost 10 years and have - through the advice therein - earned at least 25 times the cost of the newsletters. The SEC action you allude to refers to a freedom of speech issue Stansberry has fought for years at an enormous cost because of the principles being assaulted by the government's action. Stansberry has shared much of this information with his subscribers several times in great detail, and has received tremendous support from the vast majority of his subscribers. All of us have been repeatedly offered subscription refunds - with no questions asked - but very few of us have done so, since it would be economically stupid based on the results we have all attained. You couldn't pay me enough money to surrender my Stansberry subscriptions! I only wish our elected officials were as honest and direct as the people at Stansberry & Associates. By the way, the litigation is still pending.
- Yeah, we need to get our facts straight. Just listen to Mr. Stansberry's advocate on the radio about "endofamerica." That right there, is that not a scare tactic? Does anyone seriously think the end of America is right around the corner? This guy got rich by dishing out advice to suckers, that's it. You couldn't pay me enough money to listen to a single scrap of anything "Mr." Porter Stansberry has to say. Especially after wasting my time listening to that "endofamerica" garbage. PORTER STANSBERRY... perfect name for a scam artist.
- I know that Stansberry is selling a product. So what? That's what a free market is all about. I also have a personal philosophy of not believing anything not independently verified. I've heard what Porter Stansberry is saying from other sources that I deem reliable. Therefore, I accept what he is saying as credible. Further, his product is packaged well; I need not grapple with assembling data from widely disparate sources. For $49.50 for a year, I think this is well worthwhile. BTW, I DID buy gold at $256/oz in 2000. Do you realize how LITTLE of the stuff there is in the world? Besides its use through the ages for jewelry, its scarcity is what makes it so valuable. I can't see the value EVER declining much today.
- I have received and viewed Stansberry videos and information and I do not feel he is trying to rip people off. Is he trying to make money? Of course he is. And what's wrong with that? He is providing people with - as far as I am concerned - a wakeup call. Someone posted that he is trying to scare people and what he says will never happen in America. Well, I say just look at the numbers yourself, do some research. The numbers do not lie and many of the population is unaware what is going on. There are only a few willing to speak up. I try to tell all who will listen to do there research. Also remember that America has been through hard times before like the Great Depression - what makes people think it can't happen again?
- I am investigating the veracity of this video and frankly, it scared me. The fear factor and the virus of panic seems to have gripped the world lately. I know about the SEC fines against Stansberry, as well as the reasons for those supporting him and his newsletters. However, I luckily wrote down the names of four of the alleged investors who supported him, and who claimed to have made enough to buy a yacht. I used a search engine to search for these four investors, since their cities were included in the video. I could not find three of them at all - none by that name. The other name was listed but not in the city in the video. Spokeo reveals the value of the homes and economic status of the subjects. My conclusion is that there are some distortions and omissions by him. I will use the money for a newsletter to stock up on food and water and probably get some arms in case of urban riots.
- One fine from the SEC - with all of the publications and advice this guy has given over the many, many years - certainly is not cause for alarm. The SEC would fine you and me if it could. And from what I have read about the case so far, it sounds like the outcome could have gone either way.
- I would guess you are all probably both confident and comfortable with your personal physician, which is why you use him/her, but nearly all personal physicians will be sued for malpractice at some point in their career. Does that mean they are bad doctors? Frauds posing as doctors?
- As far as the "endofamerica36" video is concerned, yes he is trying to scare you into subscribing to his newsletter (it's the capitalistic principal upon which this country was founded), but everything he is saying is true to some extent. Maybe he dramatizes a bit, but doesn't the media do that with our news everyday? Even CNN dramatizes the news for the sake of $$. They can't sell ad space if people don't watch. If you read Reggie Middleton's BoomBustBlog, I think you will find similar points of view and no one can say he isn't reputable. Google his name and you won't find any cases of fraud.

One view Some people think evolution as not real. The view is that the problem with other people thinking it's real just because science said so, but the people who don't think evolution is real believe that there are things people have found that prove evolution to be false. First look at why t…hey believe evolution to help you prove it wrong. The reason why they believe it is because science said they have proved it. I'm not against science, but evolution is not science. It's a fairy tale. I can tell you proof that it's wrong. I will start with how the world is not millions of years old. If you ask an evolutionist 'How do you tell how old the fossils are?' he would say. "We date the fossils by the rocks" . If you ask "How do you know how old the rocks are?" he would say."Simple. We date the rocks by the fossils". Notice how at first he said we date fossils by the rocks and in the next question he said that they date the rocks by the fossils. That's circular reasoning. They date the rocks by the fossils and fossils by the rocks. I used to believe that God made evolution. Now I know God made us in 7 days. Carbon dating is another way of telling how old a fossil is. Did you know they carbon dated two parts of a mammoth and one part was millions of years older than the other and they said "How could this be?" I know the answer to how it could be. Their carbon dating method does not work. Did you know they found human foot prints next to the dinosurs foot prints and the one person said "Come look at these foot prints; this means we were never apes" but the other people said they will not look at it and not accept it. They refused to deny evolution even if the proof was on the ground and that's what they do today, sadly. Did you know there was a person who wrote a book about science, and his book was a top seller until some one looked at it and found out the book was proving evolution wasn't real? And after that they fired the person who wrote the book because he was proving that evolution was not real. People try to protect the evolution theory. They did a calculation about how many people will be in the world if it's millions of years old and they found out that the planet population would be huge. There would be a human on every part of the planet. Did you know the earth is spinning slower and slower each year? That means it used to be spinning faster. They did a calculation where they saw how much the earth slowed down spinning each year, and then they did a calculation where they saw how fast it used to be spinning. What they found out was that if the earth was millions of years old, then the earth would have been spinning so fast that it would throw all life off the planet. You can use scientific proof of why evolution is wrong because that's why they believe: because of science. Evolution is not science. Another view Unfortunately, many points in the above answer, besides not being scientifically based, are completely wrong. . Paleobiologists do not date rocks by fossils. Rocks are dated via other methods, such as radioisotope dating. It sounds like the person answering above is confused about the concept of 'index fossils'. When a rock stratum has been studied thoroughly enough to know that certain fossils are only found in that particular layer, those fossils are then called 'index fossils', which enables a paleontologist working in a new site to have a quick idea what era the rocks he is working in come from. Independent verification of the strata are always eventually done---no rock layer is ever 'dated' by its fossils alone. . The person answering also has no clear idea what carbon dating is, and its limitations. No paleontologist uses carbon dating in specimens over 50,000 years old because it is useless after that. A carbon dating test could not possibly give a reading over 50,00 years, so the source for the previous answer about the mammoth is incorrect. . Human footprints have never been found in strata contemporary with dinosaurs , except as the result of incompetent hoaxes. . Apparently, the human population calculation referenced above forgot to take into account the fact that humans are mortal and require resources (which are in finite supply) to survive. That is why there aren't people covering the earth. . The spinning earth part is so bizarrely wrong it is almost impossible to guess what the source was for such nonsense. The first answer suggesting that evolution is not real is, unfortunately, pretty much baseless opinion. Answer Evolution teaches [correctly] that because of the Laws of Thermodynamics everything is cooling down. It follows that: . Everything always flows from hotter bodies to cooler bodies. . If the universe was infinitely old, the temperature throughout the universe would be uniform. . It isn't, therefore it's not uniformly old. . The universe had a beginning. (MORE)

Please be very wary of this school. They have scam warnings onteflonlinereviews [dot] com Yes, but the TEFL certificate is not a reputable certificate. Hi, I took the TEFL Institute online training in January of 2008 andfound it to be an excellent course. I never took online classes butthe profes…sor was fantanstic and the content was exceptional. Besides the class and interaction of the students being great,equally important to me was the caring staff. My advisor spentcountless hours over several months answering my questions andgiving me realistic expectations of living and working abroad. They showed me how to evaluate a good job in Taiwan and I've beenhere 3 months having a great time. I had emailed a few other TEFLcompanies and just got a generic brochure (which is fine) but Ididn't feel I was being really helped to figure out what trainingand going overseas is all about. I had only been on vacation withmy parents to the Bahamas and really didn't know much about goingoverseas but was given a lot of valuable advice to do this theright way. I would highly recommend TEFL Institute of Chicago (there are otherTEFL companies in other countries with the same name as I foundout). Cindy (MORE)

I have been with Shoppers Hotline for many years. While I don't believe that they are a scam, I do have a problem with the fact that they outsource everything to India. At one time I received a call from someone with a thick Indian accent. He told me that I needed to return my equipment immediatel…y because all my transmissions were garbled. I told him that there was a problem with my phone which would be fixed within a few days. He insisted that I return my equipment. I ignored what he said and continued transmitting. He put my points on the credit card even though I did not request this. I then sent a message stating that I needed to speak with someone in the U.S. regarding the rude treatment that I had received from this young man. Needless to say, I never heard from them. I too agree that it took a VERY long time for my credit card to be credited with my reward $$. If anyone knows what happened to this company, I would like to know. (MORE)
This appears to be an association that promotes "health living". One of the so-called benefits is the availability of what is billed as health insurance. A lot more investigation would be necessary to determine the validity of the plan. However, in order to be valif, there would have to be a license…d insurer that is responsible for the payment of claims. In recent years there has been a rash of "association plans" with often surface when genuine health insurance is hard to obtain or is costly. These "unauthorized" plans collect premium dollars without any intention of paying claims. I am not suggesting that NBLA is one of these types of organizations. Again, further due diligence is needed. Don't jump in before looking. (MORE)
Gold as an Investment option is very attractive. When I was in my school my mom used to buy 10 grams of gold at the price I get her 1 gram now. That is how much the price of gold has gone up in the past 10 years. Also, gold is a limited resource. In India especially we do not have many gold mines th…at have been able to consistently produce as much gold as some nations around the world are producing. So considering these 2 factors Gold is a very attractive and a comparatively safe investment option. (MORE)

I have no clue yet. They post so many similar auctions of players on their eBay store that it seems fishy. Additionally, there photostat COA has the same picture for every item signed by that particular player. However, in researching this on the internet, they seem to specialize in New England Patr…iot memorobilia and actually hold legitimate signings for those players. I have heard conflicting reports on them and unfortunately am waiting on a few items I have purchased from them. I am contemplating whether or not to send in the items to be authenticated by PSA/DNA or JSA as their opinions of autographs are in questions at times as well. So ultimately, I have no idea. You never know if it is a real auto unless you witnessed it I guess. (MORE)

Forex trading is essentially a zero sum game and counting the difference in ask/bid prices, it even becomes a negative sum game! What this means is that your gains come someone else's losses and vice versa; The longer you trade the more you tend to loose since you pay the difference in bid/ask price…s... Knowing this, a company that claims to make a huge consistent profit from forex is probably a scam... If you want to make real money in the long run, do not trade, instead invest! Pick some stocks, buy them and make money from the dividends and market appreciation. On average, you could be making 10% return on your investment per year and constantly investing and compounding it can yield a pretty big sum after some years;) (MORE)

This is a very broad question as worded. However, there are a multitude of reputable companies. Some of the factors to consider include: 1. Are you interested in an HMO or an indemnity company? An HMO proceeds on more of a managed care model where pre-approval of procedures is often required. An …indemnity model tends to allow greater choice of physicians, but is often more costly than managed care plans. There are many great companies offering either, both, or combinations of those models. 2. Not all insurers offer health insurance in all states. You have to be certain that the company that you choose is licensed ("authorized") to transact insurance business in the state. You can do this easily by contacting the State Insurance regulator's office located in your state capitol. 3. If you deal with an insurance agent or broker for other types of insurance needs, obtain a referral from him/her. Typically, a life insurance agent will also deal in health insurance. 4. When you find a company that seems appealing, contact the State Insurance regulator's office to determine whether the company has a favorable complaint ratio. That has to do with the ratio of complaints compared with the amount of business that the company writes, and the manner in which complaints have been resolved. 5. An option for you might be a medical discount plan. IT IS NOT INSURANCE in the sense that the plan does not pay claims on your behalf. However, it has negotiated reduced fees with providers and, in return for your payment of monthly membership fees, you are permitted access to the providers at the reduced fee. Remember, though, that you are responsible for paying the provider and that the plan does not assume any risk of payment . While not the same as insurance, it may be a good option for you if existing medical conditions or other factors make traditional insurance unavailable or too costly. I recommend you this site where you can compare quotes from different companies yourfinance.co.cc (MORE)
