Weiss Research Reviews – Legit or Scam?

from 128 reviews Review It


Weiss Research, at www.WeissInc.com, is a financial newsletter publisher that provides research and analysis to their members, so they can make independent decisions about their investment opportunities.

Weiss Research, founded by consumer advocate and financial author Martin Weiss, was founded in 1971 and currently has over 500,000 active readers, making it one of the most widely read investment newsletters available.

What Weiss Research Offers

Weiss Research has five different divisions they offer their members, each providing a different service useful to independent investors. It provides two free newsletters, Money and Markets and Uncommon Wisdom.

WeissInc.com claims that Money and Markets contains unbiased daily market commentary, while Uncommon Wisdom provides daily email updates on growing your wealth and profit opportunities.

The remaining three divisions offer a variety of specific features. The Weiss Money Network provides internet television programs which offer financial and investment advice.

Weiss Ratings offers accurate ratings of businesses and other investment institutions, while their Weiss Watchdog feature will send you email alerts concerning the change of ratings on ten different companies you choose to monitor.

The Bottom Line

Generally speaking, financial newsletter publishing companies can be dangerous things. They tend to offer personal opinions as guidance for investors, and they have no legal responsibility to you if you follow their advice and things turn out badly.

It’s very troubling that many of these companies let people with no real financial experience or training contribute to their newsletters. In the worst case scenario, many of these companies are paid to bring investors to certain companies.

Weiss Research, however, does not accept payment from any company for their ratings or reviews. Still, they are currently using a “Financial Doomsday” video at www.Crisis3.com to market themselves to new customers, which is a questionable tactic.

The bottom line when dealing with any financial newsletter publishing company is to remember that you should do your own research regarding where and how to invest your money – never act wholly on the advice of one of these free internet newsletters.

  • Have tried a couple of Weiss "services", and they're all pathetic. Mike Larson is supposed to be an interest rate guru, his trades were all terrible. Have tried several of the newsletters to see the past results, and then cancelled them all during the trial period. Stansberry Research is just as bad. Just look at Jeff Clark's S&A Short Report - Jeff has made some good overall calls, such as the rally and subsequent drop in coffee. But when it comes to doing actual trading, particularly using options, the performance is pathetic and losing. Most of the recommendations from all of these "guru traders" are poorly set up, executed and followed. Once they get into a trade and it starts going bad (which is usually immediately), it gets forgotten, no talk of exiting, stop loss-ing out, etc. They just ignore it and hope no one notices. Time to sell my physical gold and silver, it's dead money and probably will be for many years.
  • John is the word. I to dumped Larry after bad calls and only read his letter to do the opposite. Funny how the rest of the world is dumping the dollar and buying gold and silver like there is no tomorrow. The only people that think that gold sucks are those people who have none. Soros will win this call and continue to destroy the dollar. History will prevail. Soros will move to China when he is finished with the dollar. China, Russia, India, Germany and soon to be Swiss reject the dollar and look to the future with gold and silver. Keep on spinning Larry. Much later!
    • Larry has had a lot of bad calls that I've lost money on. I briefly tried Gold and Silver trader and after losing money, requested a full refund. However I went all in on his ZSL and GLD options recommendations and tripled my Ira and brokerage accounts in two different instances following his Real Wealth Report. He does know gold and silver and it's hard not to spend the $89 a year for his newsletter with those results. He has great big picture advice that I use to do my own thing.
    • I've been following Larry for sometime, he has been very accurate at forecasting the rise in dollar and the drop in gold & silver. Funny how you could have made a small fortune, instead presumably you held gold & it tanked. I'll be buying gold when it drops below $1000. Maybe you will listen to Larry then!
  • never trust anybody with your money.
  • If you've ever watched any of the Weiss "webinars", you quickly see that they're nothing but well rehearsed, scripted commercials for their products being presented under the guise of interviews. Phonier than a 3 dollar bill. Stay clear. They're all frauds.
  • The latest site that I can bring up was written in 2012.

    Even when I put in 2014 or 2015.

    Things change yearly or during the year.

    I have no rating to give them.
  • give you money to charity or you will become one.

    Weiss is a disgrace to our religion.
  • Weiss is the worse. Stay away. I too subscribed to the Gold and Silver Trader report. What a scam. This guy can't hit the broad side of a barn. Loss after loss after loss. He misses all the big moves. In fact he can't hit a small move. A real blow hard. Save your money. This is supposed to be a trading service. Your supposed to catch the swings. He can't catch a cold. How could he be any good if he several different news letters he has to be responsible for. Go with a service that is dedicated to one news letter. These people juggle too many balls and are dropping them all over the place. There are many better services out there.
    • Take any of these guys resumes and see if anybody would hire them.

      Could they work for the Federal Reserve Bank?


      Do they have a track record?


      Yet, I am so grateful to Weiss Research.

      Thanks goodness they did not hire me.

      Yet, they block our the sunshine with fear and false hope.

      Do they make money?


      See how easy it is to rob people without a gun.
    • These guys sell "paper."Do you think anybody would hire them. So why are they successful? It is called media tonnage. They market all over. And when you have these many suckers it is a great business? Think of the margins. Nearly 95% No wonder Larry is out of the country.
  • Larry Edelson (as well as the rest of the Weiss People) are pathological liars and con men. All the brilliant calls they claim to have made are lies to sucker in new subscribers. They makes tens of millions of dollars off subscribers for services that consistently lose lots of money. Thats why the SEC fined them $2.1M. Larry now lives outside the US to escape further prosecution. If you believe them and follow their advice for any of the Weiss services, you will lose money.
    • Agreed. After years and years of paying for Larry Edelson's failed predictions in the gold market in his Real Wealth Report, I canceled. He's all into "models", "war cycles", phases of the moon, days ending in the letter "y".....the last couple of years he was constantly making predictions and then following up the next month with excuses as to why his predictions went wrong. So much for his models, expertise, divining rods, etc. He knows nothing.
  • They sell paper.

    And you buy it.

    Typical con operation.

    That is the price you pay for freedom of the press.

    If they really know where the market is going, they would not need you.

    Buy a good financial paper that is legit.

    Give your money to charity.

    Not these middle aged guys in Florida.
  • Larry Edelson had me really fooled. This guy gave a clear and cogent

    presentation on why gold had hit bottom. He made perfect sense. But all I have to show for his wretched advice is losses, even on The Euro, which now is a little better than his entry price. I have heavy losses in GLD, SLV, and TBT(short twenty year bond ETF). Man, he recommended that in the 70s, then was stopped out in the mid 60s,

    then again in the high 50s. Thousands of dollars in losses. TBT was in

    a clear intermediate to long-term downtrend. The long side(TLT) went

    straight up. Possibly TBT has now bottomed around 53.90. Also Mike Larson of Weiss Research kept pitching higher interest rates all this time. Charles Goyette also talked me into buying SLV around 20+

    Man, these guys know how to con, even people like me who have been in the markets for over 50 years. What a racket! There are also many other losing positions-TNTC(too numerous to count)
