June 2007 Issue

Rodney Dangerfield may be gone, but Wall Street’s “I don’t get no respect” bull market is keeping his legacy alive. Dow at another new all-time high? Shrug. Takeovers spiking stocks left and right? Yawn. We’re in the midst of what ought to be a rollicking party, and most of the guests are half-asleep!
To be honest with you, I’m delighted with this state of affairs. It suggests that the advance will last longer, and climb to far greater heights, than the majority of observers now expect. When this bull is ready to keel over, it will be from too much revelry�not an excess of caution.
In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to pinpoint the safest, most value-packed stocks in this underappreciated market. Remarkably, some of my top candidates are household names, giants “hidden in plain sight.” I’ve got three for you that could easily pop 20%�30% in the coming year, with even bigger gains down the road.

December 2006 Issue

Gridlock! Whether you’re delighted or dismayed by the results of the midterm election, I’ve got encouraging news for you—a divided government in Washington isn’t such a bad thing for your investments. This month, I’ll show you how you can take advantage of the new paths to profit that the election has opened up. In fact, I expect gains of 40%-60% in the next two years for my top picks. December also marks the fourth anniversary of our Incredible Dividend Machine. This nifty portfolio has beaten the overall stock market by such a huge margin it’s almost amusing. In our latest lineup, I’m swapping two of the members of the Machine with new names that I’m confident will keep the streak going. Finally, the holiday season is the perfect time to do some housecleaning, and if you’re sitting on a mutual fund that has outlived its usefulness, raise a glass of holiday cheer and toast it good-bye. Then replace it with one of my four best funds for your specific needs.

Another Oil Spill

Thursday was another tough session for energy traders. After holding steady until about 11:30 am ET, crude oil prices began a painful slide, ending the day down $2.50 a barrel to $56.26 on the New York Merc—the lowest close since November 2005.

November 2006 Issue & Supplement

Wall Street’s amazing bull has rejuvenated itself for another romp as stocks are putting on a fresh display of power. This month, I’ll show you how you can keep the profits flowing at a safe, healthy double-digit pace by identifying the rich veins of value still waiting to be mined. Ironically, I’m finding some of the best bargains in an area overcrowded with speculators until just a few months ago—oil and gas, including a pair of names that could leap 50%�80% in the next few years. The oil patch is also home to my favorite type of vehicle income right now—master limited partnerships. I’ll point you to my top buy among the bunch and answer some of your nagging questions about MLPs. Also look for a primer on the most attractive stocks and markets overseas. And don’t miss my Tax Savers’ Workshop in this month’s supplement.

October 2006 Issue

This month, find out why the stock market is primed for a strong, sustainable growth cycle starting sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. I’ll
show you how to make the most of the lucrative—yet in many ways “different”—bull market I see unfolding. To help you get your ducks
in a row, I’ll name my top three industry groups, with my #1 stock pick in each for potential gains of 60%-80% and more by late 2008 or early 2009.
I’ve also included a long list of ill-fated stocks and mutual funds to cut loose as quickly as possible.

Lean the Other Way

Investors are starting to feel comfortable about the stock market again. You can see it in the quick turnaround this afternoon when the Federal Reserve released the minutes of its August meeting. Money managers who were sitting on too much cash jumped on the Fed news as an excuse to buy.

Kudos to a Do-Nothing Fed

Good, bad or indifferent? Wall Street had a tough time making up its mind about today’s Federal Reserve vote to leave short-term interest rates unchanged at 5.25%. Stocks bounced immediately after the Fed news, then gave up all their gains and more.

Oil Drop

Oil prices seem to have topped out — for the time being anyway. That may come as a relief for the broader stock market, but it’s also triggering a near-term “correction” for energy stocks. Should you fear the pullback or welcome it?

January 2005 Issue & Supplement

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to make the most of the opportunities, while avoiding the pitfalls. On the stock side of our portfolio, we’re concentrating ever more intently on low-risk names with high dividend yields—the ultimate badge of honor. I’ve got a new pick for you that has tripled its dividend in less than two years. That’s the kind of growth that will let you sing and dance through Wall Street’s periodic anxiety attacks.
