The Cheap Investor Reviews

About The Cheap Investor

TheCheapInvestor.com is the online home of the Bill Mathews’ stock investment newsletter of the same name, The Cheap Investor, which he claims anyone can use for free information and analysis for money earning investment opportunities.

According to the website, Bill Mathews says that of the last 243 stocks that he has picked, 241 have gone on to make the investors money, with average gains of 162%. And new subscribers to his website can receive his next stock pick, along with detailed analysis, for free.

Mathews says that many aspects of the financial industry have changed since he established his newsletter in 1981, but the most basic method of successful stock investing is still true: the best way to make money in the stock market is to buy stocks before they get expensive and then “ride them up.”

The Cheap Investor says that though that is a simple philosophy, it is hard for the average person to tell the difference between stocks which are undervalued and will rise in price and stocks that are “garbage.” This is where the newsletter becomes useful.

The newsletter will give you Bill Mathews’ stock picks along with detailed analysis of why he believes they are good choices. You will also have an option to get a free copy of his eBook “Making BIG Money in Small Stocks,” which has “proven” profit making strategies.

However, all financial newsletters including The Cheap Investor give a disclaimer saying that all advice they provide through their publication should be double checked either through your own personal research or through a professional investment advisor.

These publications take no legal responsibility for any negative consequences you may incur from following their advice, and as always, the best rule of investing is to never invest more money than you are able to lose comfortably.

And though this website says it will never sell your information to a third party company, they do provide links to third party associates through their website and publications. Once you leave their site for a partner company, you must always remember that you are dealing with a new set of policies that you should investigate before buying a product or providing personal info.

There is no subscription now

Reviewed By James Brown on October 25, 2015

It is a free news letter! Maybe SEC got onto his butt and cut him off from selling subscriptions. But up front he tells you that this is speculation stock. Speculation stock can go either way; way up or way down. Just use the money you were going to drink beer with to invest with speculation stock, that way you will loose your "Done Loped" condition (Belly done loped over your belt)

If it sounds too good to be true usually it isn't, use you head and common sense with speculation stock.

Pump and Dump

Reviewed By Marc Schachle on June 23, 2015

Only subscribe to this rag if you want to lose your money. Bought four stocks on the recommendation of Cheap Investor. Track record-two already declared bankruptcy and the other two have lost 95% and 60% respectfully. Look very closely at the record. Most if not all the stocks recommended experience a very short gain cycle and then tank. Matthews then claims a 100% winner rate. What a crock!

"Track record-two already declared bankruptcy and the other two have lost 95% and 60% respectfully."

This is YOUR fault. If you buy a stock blindly based on a recommendation and don't set a sensible stop loss or trailing stop then you are simply gambling.

I personally have made 40%, 25%. gains on stocks he suggested in the last few months. Sure, a couple have bombed but I had minimal losses on those.

Be smart about how you invest and you won't be crying like this in public,

"Track record-two already declared bankruptcy and the other two have lost 95% and 60% respectfully."

This is YOUR fault.

If you buy a stock/equity based on someone's recommendation and don't set a trailing stop or a stop loss order to protect your fund, then you are asking for losses like these. When I was a rookie and new to this investment game I had these losses then I read VanTharp and others who taught me to manage risk.

I personally have made plenty of gains using Bill Matthew's recommendations. Mine have been in the double digits and I'd truly love to land one in the triple digits. Some of his recommendations end up as pink-sheeters circling the drain but just because they do that doesn't mean your money has to sink with them.

So Far So Bad

Reviewed By J K on December 19, 2014

I am in the third week of my subscription and so far I can testify that this website is entirely screwed up and the customer service sucks. Most of my emails have gone unanswered. Some links on the website don't work. I complained that I could not navigate to the October, Novermber and December "Advanced Wealth Newsletters" and could only access the September issue. They responded with a link that did not work and then informed me that had some "technical difficulties" getting the October, Novermber and December issues on-line and that they would be available "tomorrow". "Tomorrow" has come and gone.

Does that mean that the subscribers to the October, November and December issue are still waiting? What nonsense. I suggested that they simply put the October, November and December issues right below the September issue which is EASILY accessed.

This is one very strange and utterly incompetently run website and that is the nicest way of putting it.

Fraud

Reviewed By Πανδώρα Άγαδακις on March 10, 2014, Vancouver, Washington

How is this guy not in jail??? He seems to think he can play the short game, including planing reviews here, but how does he think he's not going down? Watch for the news...

He's not down yet. Obviously you have some other agenda. I'm a subscriber and I've lost and made good money on his recommendations.

By Design, All Stock Pick Newsletters are a Fraud/Scam

Reviewed By Leo on November 12, 2013

If anyone could truly and consistently and legally pick winners in the market, they would quietly cash in on their ability.

It would be absurd for them to bother writing, editing, publishing, and customer-servicing a lousy $40 newsletter, when they can easily make vast amounts in the market trading their winners with the click of a mouse.

I disagree completely. He can make way more money selling his picks then he can investing in them...if he wasn't making good picks don't you think people would stop using him?

The whole problem with The Cheap Investor is that if ANY stock he picks goes up even 1 cent after he recommends it, he crows: "I WAS RIGHT AGAIN!!!" Anyone can do that. What makes a great stock pick letter are price targets to get out at, whether a profit or a loss. That shows integrity and responsibility toward the subscriber. The Cheap Investor does not do that at all. If you are a newbie in investing, it is almost guaranteed you will lose money with this letter.
