    Yes, I have the same, but I think it is a subscription to Morning Money or Daily Reckoning that the enquiries are going to. I have seperated my paid subscriptions and free ones to seperate emails and do not have the problem to the paid subscription email.

    :DHave been with the Dr. for about 12 months now and as he says set your stop losses at @ 5% and you should be able to save some if the stock crashes and make some if the stock increases or buy back in at a lower price to recover losses. Always only have 5% of your capital in any one stock and happy trading...works for me several stocks are up in the 30% + and taking profit and following his recommendations.

    5% is a bit tight? - could get taken out by market chatter?

    Were you a paid subscriber ?
    If you are commenting on the free one I suggest one thing: there is no free lunch newsletter. Look at Bulls Newsletter . It comes free and some one is going to make investment decisions on that Bull Free Newsletter then it will prove its name : BULL with a missing space and the letter S after it. A free forum is different thing as it is an exchange of comments/ thoughts etc like ASF. But once again ASF is to survive on the advertisements published in its forum to make it free. It is just like Google or Face Book . Free but with big opportunities.



    The daily reckoning is a wordy one but the paid subscriptions are real gem for money. DYOR but I am a happy customer. I put the daily reckoning etc just on junk filter.

    They have recommended as a BUY a stock called Elemental Minerals (ELM) - Huge Potash Holding

    Check out the Hotcopper posts on this company particularly by a guy called "anatol". Very informative.

    Some people are saying this will go to $10 over the next year or so (currently $1.75!)!

    Yes, every recomendation generally goes to the recommended buy price or higher the next trading day, as D and D have a huge following, mainly from getting it right. The recomendation to sell also has the reverse effect, and I can remember LYC falling dramatically on a sell recomendation. I have found the subsription useful and costs were more than paid for in the first trade I did.

    One work of caution is listing the buy recommendation on a public forum before the market opens is a copyright breach and I recommend you do not do it in future. It is also a breach of the forum.

    After the market opens, there is normally a speeding ticket form the ASX where D and D is publicly identified. But the paid subscribers (such as me) would prefer only paid subscribers have the information. If you want it, it does not cost much.

    Hi Iggy - what do you mean by this? Does ASX put up some notice saying that stocks B,C,D have been tipped by D&D?

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    Re: Diggers & Drillers.

    Agree with other poster that a 5% stop/loss is very small and with small cap stocks it could mean lots of trades, especially in today's conditions. Not sure what Dr. sets his stop/losses at but when he finally says sell it is always a big loss if you are still following his upbeat editorial! Best set your own, and remember he doesn't have his dough on any of the D&D stocks.

    I am fan of the doctor but his stocks are getting smashed at the moment! I'm surprised the falls have not set off his stop losses...

    Re: Diggers & Drillers.

    As if to confirm concerns expressed in my last post, the good Dr has issued a sell on stocks CCC and STB with scant reasons for STB. Sure there will be those smart players who have never made a loss, but they couldn't have been following the editorial advice in D&D newsletter or they would have still been holding the stocks waiting for a rebound as we have been told at current prices these represent bargains! Is anyone else unhappy or am I a lone voice? Have a voice even if it is to tell me I am wrong and why this is so...

    Hi Wonderboy,

    I can tell you there are a lot of very very angry subscribers today after the announcement that CCC and STB hit their stop losses.

    I find it staggering that he watched CCC drift all the way down from 9c to 3.9c, only to then issue to the stop loss alert at such a low price! So many opportunities to take a profit, only to get out with a loss!

    I think the problem is AC got sucked into the rally late last year. A rising tide lifts all boats and all his stocks were flying. It reminded me a little of 2007 - pre GFC - when everything was going up. Furthermore, he had quite a heavy exposure to the market (as opposed to Kris Sayce at the Australian Small Cap Investigator who has been cautious for months).

    In hindsight, more profits should have been taken off the table. Ie. when STB flew to 6 bucks - could have locked in a 50% gain in a matter of months - you can't complain about that. But hindsight is a great thing.

    The mood of the market has now changed dramatically, his stocks are getting slaughtered, and I actually think he is a bit out of his depth!
