    Gomes told paying subscribers to buy at $1.20; now tells public to buy at $0.70

    Just think about that for a second. His paying subscribers were urged to buy at $1.20 back in November, now the public gets to buy in at a 42% discount today (see his PTT blog for free signup). His write-up today is nearly identical to his original write-up back in November. So what is the point of paying for a PTT subscription if you're going to get the picks for free anyway, and sometimes even at a better market price? And you get to see the original write-up to boot! So what are you paying for? Part of his promotion to subscribe to PTT is that he says you need to be among the first to read his picks to get the best prices. But is that really true? Look at DLIA. His subscribers paid $1.20, and the public was able to get in at $0.70. So who got the better deal? His subscribers or the public? Be honest.

      i dunno facial peter. You tell us. It is clear you are a paid subscriber

      I am too (for the last 45 days). I have made, I guess, 10-12k advantage off being a paid subscriber. But of course that is relative to the $$ you put in. Still, money is money, and 10k is OK with me, in 1.5 months.

      I agree there is a limited advantage to paying. You can go for free, and get a lot of the advantage. Before I joined I had made 15-20k off of the PTT "advice".

      For me it was worth it - one lifetime membership for 3k, and I have easily covered my cost (and that is actual, not theoretical "when I sell").

        Hey Dr. Moose, since you just signed up with PTT as paid subscriber 45 days ago, that means you weren't around to witness the euphoria of the original Gomes pick of DLIA back in November, when it was trading at $1.20 and everybody was so excited. It was Mark's second pick since launching his paid service, and people were so excited at first. You really saved yourself a lot of pain by coming in late. Most people who bought DLIA on the day Gomes first recommended it had to pay up near $1.40, because the stock popped so high. So you can imagine their pain in the following weeks, when the stock lost 50% from their buy point and Mark did not use a stop loss. And these were paying subscribers. Not the freeloaders who are now buying under a dollar, and for the first time. It's amazing when i read the Q&A of Gomes' Seeking Alpha article from this morning. All the freeloaders are saying thank you to Mark for this great pick which is up a lot in one day, and he replies to them with a bow. It's as if he totally forgot about the people who were paying him subscription fees for what they thought would be the best timing of picks. He just doesn't seem to get it. It's really offputting to watch, from the perspective of an early paid subscriber. Just makes me cringe.
