I personally tried Fat Prophets, and found they had alot of High Risk Speculative stocks, but occasionally they would recommend a fairly safe and untrendy stock. In a full year I made enough money to cover the cost of the expensive email only newsletter and a reasonable profit (in a good year generally).

But, I found them a bit too bullish on gold to bother renewing my subscription this year.


They temper their tips with accurate (IMO) risk assessments and put a time scale in the years- so gold may well prove to be a very good tip.

Over many years have found most "Investment Newsletters" a waste of money. eg Your Money,Fat Prophets,Inside Trader ect to name a few. A lot of investors seem to need a so called "expert"to tell them what to do and are unable to make up their own minds. By the time their information gets published it is history and thousands of people know about it. Two years ago I wrote to one of the leading newsletter in Australia saying now was the time to look at oil shares. The reply was they did not think so as most oil companies in Australia did not have a good business plan. Well we know what happened to oil shares since then.Where were the experts when you could not give AMU,NZO CUE or other similar oil stocks away for a few cents?


Why do so many take overs happen near the top? Thats when the experts see value never at the bottom, who was recommending PMM below a dollar now a takeover at 3.40. and what about GTP or RDF just two years ago. You can find out so much on your own before the crowd moves in, but you will certainly look wrong but this is where the big profits are made.


Bit hard to find any real bargains in the current older bull market. But I did post ATP on Monday, think RMG might come good at last and like the look of FAR.


Good Investor News Letter. Well the best I ever came across was Quintin Camerons Oil and Gas Bulletin but he does no publish anymore - and by the way a lot of the experts used to laugh at him. Dont get any investment letters now but research a lot and make up my own mind. Make mistakes too, its a hard game.

they also seem to be recommending ceramic fuel Cells (CFU) in their

advertising. (They dont specifically mention it , because they want you to

sign up. But i recognize the stock by the information they give)

I find that you get a lot more info available on these chats sites than any newsletters. Yes you have to search through the cr*p to find the good stuff but the same applies to newsletters. I think you will find that a number of the posters here are very experienced. And yes some are just rampers but dont think that doesnt also apply to newsletters and research reports by companys.


Most of those that arrive at 8.30am in bussiness suits to work are amateurs. Many of the really good guys arrive at 10am in pyjamas.

Always DYOR never trust anyone.
