The original "gumshoes" of the late 1800's were shoes or boots made of gum rubber, the soft-soled precursors of our modern sneakers... At the turn of the century "to gumshoe" meant to sneak around quietly as if wearing gumshoes, either in order to rob or, conversely, to catch thieves. "Gumshoe man" was originally slang for a thief, but by about 1908 "gumshoe" usually meant a police detective, as it has ever since.
So what's a stock gumshoe?
Clearly, it means a stock detective. More accurately, it is a guesstimation of a stock symbol which is being teased about in a financial newsletter's marketing campaign. Financial newsletters often use hype-filled teaser ads to get you to subscribe. To learn about the identity of the teaser stock, you'd need to buy the newsletter. Some of these newsletters can cost from a lowly $49 per year to as high as $5,000!
