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 troubling that often of these companies let people with no significant 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 Ratings claims to not accept payment from any company for their ratings or reviews.
Still, Weiss has used “Financial Doomsday” videos to market themselves to new customers, which is a questionable tactic.
The bottom line when dealing with any financial newsletter publishing company is to do your own research regarding where and how to invest your money. Never act wholly on the advice of an internet newsletters.
