May 2007 Issue & Supplement

You can bank on it! Now that the stock market has found its roar again, investors are scrambling to figure out what to do. Is it too
late to buy? Clearly, the supply of bargain-priced stocks has thinned out in the past six weeks or so. But I’ve got good news
for you: There’s still a rich lode waiting to be tapped—right down the street from your house, at some of America’s
biggest and best-known banks.

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to cherry-pick, from the hundreds of publicly traded
banks, those with the brightest prospects for both current income (dividends) and capital growth. As you’ll see, the recent
hue and cry about subprime mortgages is only a diversion—the banks I’m recommending are strong and safe, and will navigate
through this media-puffed “crisis” with
flying colors.

Speaking of mortgages, I’m so convinced the issue has been overblown that I’m sniffing around for values
among the battered specialty mortgage lenders, too. On p. 3, I’ll introduce you to a handful of the healthiest, with dividend
yields as high as 5%, 6% and even 8%. If you’re an aggressive income investor, this may be your finest opportunity in years
to lock in a bonanza while the crowd is gazing the other way.

Well, we’re 355 points closer to the next bull market! That’s how many points the Dow dropped this week. Now, we aren’t trying to make light of falling stock prices, but we do want you to realize that this decline is only temporary.

Dodging the bullet! Stock prices rebounded this week, but not before the S&P 500 index had slipped, at its midweek low, some 6% from the May 5 closing high. We realize that pullbacks like this can be unnerving. But in fact, they’re absolutely essential if the market is to remain healthy over the long term.

May 2006 Issue & Supplement

In this month’s visit, I’ll introduce you to a select handful of stocks that I’m counting on to lead the market in 2007 and beyond. All of these businesses are riding a powerful demographic tailwind that should propel their growth for many years, perhaps decades, to come. Yet the stocks have only begun to move. We’re five minutes into a transcontinental flight.

Contradictions! Stock prices bounced this week as investors focused on soothing comments from the Federal Reserve and ignored the skyrocketing price of crude oil. We’re not sure how long this type of contradiction can last.
