Ready for the wipeout?

A few days ago I got my daily smap from Louis Navellier.
The goal was to scare the reader and to do so, Mr. Navellier's marketing experts added a picture of a paining: The Raft of the Medusa, by the French painter Théodore Géricault. You can admire this painting at the Louvre Museum in paris.

Here it is. Scary, isn't it?



Mr. Navellier (or his Marketing department) then try to convince you that the one and only way to preserve your money id through his Blue Chip Growth service. A few $100 and you and your money are safe.

In addition you get Mr. Navellier's report The Earnings Secret: how to outperform the market 3-to-1! (a $49 value), his How To Invest $50,000 Now (a $49 value) and last but not least If You Can Buy Just 3 (a $29 value).

I do not know who and how values these reports, but this is not the point here.

In a light yellow frame on the same message you can read:

Does Mr. N. check what he has or does he just tell his readers random advices? Two of the stocks to avoid are even in his Top5...

The list he provides doesn't necessarily mean that it is a stock to avoid. It just means that they put that stock to the test and report on it.
