There are people who call Energy Advantage a scam. It’s disheartening, but I don’t let it derail my work when I’m trading for myself or helping other people make smart investment decisions.
Whether you run an oil investing subscription service, a supermarket, or a carpet-cleaning service, you’ll find people who aren’t satisfied with your performance. It’s part of operating a business. That’s why, when people call Energy Advantage a scam, I don’t let it bother me. I’m more focused on helping my subscribers grow their wealth.
To help you understand what makes people write negative things about Energy Advantage, let’s look at some of the facts.
Who Is Dr. Kent Moors?
I’m Dr. Kent Moors. People all over the world — including government agencies and financial institutions — call me when they want to get an idea about where the energy sector is heading and what I think about its prospects.
You might have seen me talking about oil investing on television. I also teach at the Graduate Center for Social and Public Policy at Duquesne University, and I’ve written six books on energy investing and similar topics.
It stands to reason that I know what I’m talking about.
Why Would Anyone Call Energy Advantage a Scam?
When people call Energy Advantage a scam, it’s often because they failed to generate a profit with the service — if they ever subscribed at all. Lack of profits can result from a number of factors, many of which are outside my control.
For instance, when I issue a trade alert or an exit alert, I can’t control how quickly you take my advice or what position you take in the security. That’s up to the individual investor. It’s also why, when I receive testimonials from happy subscribers, their profits on a single play vary.
You also have to remember that every investor has a different level of risk tolerance. Some of my plays might seem too risky for certain investors, so they sit on the sidelines. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it doesn’t mean I’ve provided bad information. It just means that the investor needs to wait for a play that is more in line with his or her risk tolerance.
Some people also call Energy Advantage a scam because they assume that no stock newsletter is legitimate. That’s unfortunate, but I can’t necessarily blame them. If you’ve been bitten by people who don’t really know what they’re talking about, you might become suspicious of the industry in its entirety. That’s just human nature.
I wish I could stop charlatans from profiting off hard-working citizens, but I can’t. My only recourse is to provide the best information possible so people realize they can trust me.
How Does Oil Investing Work?
In some ways, oil investing is just like any other investment. You can buy, sell, and short securities in the energy sector for profit. Whether you’re buying positions in oil companies or options trading, you take a position based on how you think a given stock or other security will perform.
I help my subscribers by providing them with text alerts and other information to help them make better plays. Through consulting with OPEC and the International Energy Association, for instance, I gather information that can help my subscribers.
You can take an investment or trading approach to oil investing. They’re wildly different strategies. Investing means buying and holding securities for a long period of time to benefit from dividends and interest until you eventually sell. If you’re trading, you’re only holding shares for a short period of time to capitalize on the price movement of that stock.
Can Investors Always Win in the Stock Market?
Here’s how you know people are wrong when they call Energy Advantage a scam. I’m upfront about the fact that nobody makes foolproof trades in the stock market. It’s not possible. If it were, I’d simply dominate the entire market and rake in trillions of dollars.
No, investors can’t always win in the stock market. Everybody, including myself, picks losers every once in a while. It comes down to volatility — stock prices can move in surprising directions, and I can’t always predict them.
My goal is to pick as many winners as possible. That should be your goal with oil investing as well. If your profits exceed your losses, you take home income that can improve your quality of life. That’s what I help hundreds of subscribers do every day.
How Can Investors Mitigate Their Losses?
While you can’t always pick winners in the stock market, you can mitigate your losses.
For one thing, if your play goes sideways, dump the stock and move on. Don’t wait for a stock to rally when it might not. That way, you get out before the stock tanks further.
Listen to your gut instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable with a play, don’t trade. Just because I’m confident in a particular oil investing security doesn’t mean you’ll feel the same way. My alerts aren’t commands — they’re suggestions.
You can also look for a mentor. While a few people might have called Energy Advantage a scam, it helps lots of people increase their wealth and build better oil investing skills. I serve as a mentor through my publications to help people reduce their losses and magnify their gains.
Do Triple-Digit Profits Happen Daily?
I often highlight triple-digit plays on my website. That’s because they do happen. It’s possible to profit 300 percent on a single play when the market conditions are perfect.
I’m also very clear that some of those triple-digit plays take place over years. A stock grows exponentially as it garners sentiment and becomes more powerful.
Does this make Energy Advantage a scam? No. Just the opposite, in fact. I’m transparent about when and how often I can help people enjoy these types of gains and in what conditions.
That’s key for successful oil investing. Some days, you might take home modest gains on a day trading play. Others, you might lose a little or enjoy fantastic gains. It all depends on how the market fares.
Keep in mind that many investors build their wealth over years of playing the stock market. Day traders, for instance, might pocket a few hundred a day, then enjoy a particularly good play and bring in a few thousand. Day traders don’t trade every day, either. If they don’t see an opportunity, they wait until tomorrow.
Oil investing isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s a legitimate way to make your money work harder for you than it would, say, sitting in a savings account.
How Can I Protect Myself From Scams?
There’s no Energy Advantage scam. However, scams do exist. The so-called “pump and dump” scams have become increasingly common now that social media exists. Promoters don’t have to resort to email to send out erroneous stock tips that wind up costing people thousands of dollars.
To protect yourself from scams, do your research. What has the investor done to prove his or her experience and expertise in the stock market? Can the investor show you evidence of past plays that have resulted in huge wins?
Pay careful attention to the language. If someone tells you he can make you a millionaire overnight, or if an investor insists that she’s never wrong, run in the other direction. That person’s making claims that can’t be true, so it’s probably a scam.
You can also do some research. For instance, if you search for “Energy Advantage scam” or “Energy Advantage reviews,” you’ll find far more positive reports than negative ones. Read each review to determine its veracity. If the reviewer sounds reasonable and fair, you can feel more comfortable trusting that person’s opinion.
I don’t like it when people call Energy Advantage a scam, but not because it hurts my feelings. Instead, I get irritated because it means other people might not take advantage of my publications. That’s a shame.
