    I would highly recommend them. I have been in for about 18 months and done very well out of them. Biggest problem is not having enough money to invest in each and every tip.
    I have kept a test portfolio of almost every tip (been a bit remiss over the past few months so have not updated and possibly missed a couple along the way), had I put equal amounts of money into every tip and just put them in the bottom drawer I would be up 66% which is not a bad effort when you look at the ASX. That means there are shares in there that were not sold when we were told to sell. They were just held.
    As to the comment about GXY, the recommendation came out around June 09 I have it as a buy at .60, it did quadruple to around $2.40 and pulled back to a low around .90 not long ago but is now on its way back. Even at the point it is at now it is still double the recommended price which is not too shabby for just over a year.

    I tried them, I ended up on every junk mail list under the sun, which they refused to fix unless I canceled. They blew plenty of recommendation's... basically they are only on their game when the market is good. One of the most annoying things was they kept spruiking the small cap investor with calls that really belonged in Diggers and Drillers as they where often a digger or driller! Also you end up with a sly little foreign currency charge if you pay by credit card as they process it in the US. Finally they put you on an auto renew.... not a sign of a reputable outfit (I don't trust any outfit that keeps cc numbers!). Every other sub I have operates in a more respectful fashion, these guys gave me the creeps. They should clean up their act, charge a little more and get it right IMO. The junk mail was enough for me without the other bits... JMO FWIW.

    Have never had any problems along these lines. Have subscribed in the past and it beats me why junk mail should ensue.

    They put you on a list and sell access to it! At least they used to... I got amazing stuff, corn ball psychics, dopey investment schemes, junk, just pure junk. It did stop after the sub died, I suppose I have that to be thankful for, or maybe it was the fact that I stuffed all the material into the return envelops and sent it back that got me off the list.... I dunno! I even offered to start returning house bricks :D

    If they have any sense they will have stopped it, it was a great way to lose subs and it was so obviously via them... started with the sub, ended with the sub and got no denials when I called to express displeasure.

    If you do do it slightly misspell something in the postal name/address, that way you will know where the junk is coming from should it arrive.

    I would highly recommend D&D.

    The guy who writes it - Alex Cowie - knows his stuff and gets out to the mines regularly to see first hand what is going on.

    It's written in plain and simple English and his track record is very good.

    At $134 or whatever the price is - it beats others like Fat Prophets hands down!

    Get on board!

    As a newbie trader with little time to research, I am very pleased with the service. Haven't got any spam either. The monthly newsletters explain the new picks in detail, and offers recommendations on buy/sell prices and rough stop loss guides. The weekly updates offer more immediate information, changes, and info on upcoming newletters. Always interesting and informative, with detailed explanations of the reasons and rationale behind it.

    I have only been paper trading this service for about 9 months, but have been impressed with the results. Some losers, but the four current picks up an average of 39% in two months.

    As a time-poor small-scale newbie trader, I like the service and will continue to subscribe. I should note that I am not aware of all the similar services out there, and am still learning.

    Did a few calculations on the 5 gold stocks recommended in that article

    KCN $2.62, now $11.64, 344% increase

    TRY $0.74, now $3. 28, 343% increase

    DOM $3.00 now $2.52, 16% decrease

    SLR $0.155, now $2.29, 1890% increase

    IGO $1.29 now $5.87 355% increase.

    4 out of 5 at those percentages not bad at all, tho I`m sure there are ones that would equal.

    Yeah hindsight is a great thing but I don't know of many people that could handle the 60% - 85% drawdowns shown in the table.

    Hard Core contrarians only. Sitting on 50%+ losses hurts, you just have to be a long term investor to beat the market in the long term. Going long is not for those of us with a limited attention span

    I agree Chargin. I am very happy with the newsletters, and the only way you get spam is if you subscribe to the free ones that PortPhillipPublishing put out (Daily Reckoning & Money Morning).

    The key with D&D and ASCI is to wait until the hype dies down. Their recommendations go nuts in the first couple of weeks (see MNC today), but they die down after a while (normally). By then you should have had time to DYOR, so it works well

    yeah that's right. and it also amazes me how many companies come out with sensational announcements within a few months of the DnD or ASCI announcements. CCC is a prime example, it has transformed as a company since he recommended it, and most of those changes 'appear' to have happened irrespective of the DnD recommendation.

    It makes you wonder whether he is being given information from management that the market doesn't have. Or maybe the management are just working really hard after the DnD recommendation to ensure that the 'hype' doesn't die, and they come up with good results etc to keep their SP up?

    Never had any SPAM email... I got real live junk mail in my mail box from all and sundry. Started with my D&D sub and ended with it.

    FWIW these guys kill them for quality IMO

    As I mentioned above, I'm a time-poor newbie investor trying to make back my losses from my first disastrous entry into the share market in November 2007. Think I picked the day the market peaked, and took three "no brainer" recommendations from a young inexperienced brainless stockbroker who only knew boom times. Just sold out (three years later) for a 10% loss.:banghead:

    Subscribed to Diggers & Drillers at the start of 2010 and have been paper trading (capital was still tied up in the three losers above).

    If you'd bought all twelve of his tips this year when he recommended them and just held them all, even ignoring his sell tips, you would still be up over 60% today.

    Just started trading real money on the last tip. Already up 40%. Very impressed with the service.

    I recently subscribed to most of the port phillip publishing tip sheets including this

    What concerns me is they keep sending you details of others to subscribe to!!!
