April 6-7, 2013  

Greetings, Gumshoe readers!
Happy Weekend, one and all!  Here's what you might have missed from the pages of Gumshoe during the week that was ...

Probably the story to get the most attention from Gumshoe readers was about the impending Palladium crisis (Russian inventory shortfalls, South African labor unrest) that will supposedly bring a storm of profits to a little North American miner -- who were they teasing?  Details here.

Or if you missed any other excitement, just read on...



The Death of the PC


The days of paying for costly software upgrades are numbered. The PC will soon be obsolete. And BusinessWeek reports 70% of Americans are already using the technology that will replace it. Merrill Lynch calls it "a $160 billion tsunami." Computing giants including IBM, Yahoo!, and Amazon are racing to be the first to cash in on this PC-killing revolution.


Yet, a small group of little-known companies have a huge head start. Get the full details on these companies, and the technology that is destroying the PC, in a free video from The Motley Fool.

The Stansberry folks have been pitching a spiel about the multi-millionaire grandmother, and about how she built this fortune after starting with a dead end job and no capital.  Sounds good, right?  Well, we look into the details and share the actual investments they're teasing here.

The folks at the Energy Strategist are teasing two superstar stocks that they think should ride high on the "Deepwater Supercycle" ... one of which happens to be a longtime Gumshoe fave.  So what are they pitching?  Click here for that story.

Marc Lichtenfeld is launching a new service called The Oxford Income Letter, and he's trying to get the attention of new subscribers with a loooooong pitch about a "three minute event" that will change financial history -- the short answer is that the "event" is a failure of a treasury auction ... and the way to play it, he tells us, is with something he calls "Spread Trusts."  So what's he really talking about?  Click here for the Gumshoe take and some details.

And we continued looking at Lichtenfeld's spiel for the Friday File for the Irregulars, taking a gander at his dividend-paying cancer play ... and checking in on a handful of other stocks this month, as well as updating you on a past "Idea of the Month" pick that I just added to my personal portfolio.  If you're a member of the Irregulars, you can find that piece at the top of the list here (you should have received it via email on Friday afternoon, too)
