April 2008 Issue

The mercury is climbing, blossoms are bursting out — so does Wall Street finally get to celebrate a springtime of its own? For eight long months now, a ferocious credit crunch, unprecedented since the Great Depression, has trapped investors in a deep freeze. Not only stocks and real estate, but even some of the (reputedly) safest bonds and money market instruments fell victim to the Arctic blast.

Happily, I’m detecting hints, here and there, of a thaw. It’s taking a lot longer than I had hoped, but we will see the end of this new Ice Age. As a balmier climate sets in, we can look forward to healthy markets again — and a return to the steady, consistent profits we enjoyed from 2003 to around mid-2007.

January 2007 Issue & Supplement

After four good years, can the markets hand us another winner in 2007? The answer is YES! We’re in an exciting phase for the markets and I’m expecting another double-digit year for the major stock indexes, plus 20%-30% (and even bigger) returns for a number of our favorite picks!

In this month’s issue I’ll share with you my roadmap for the New Year, including my insights into some speed bumps we might experience along the way. I’ll let you know one way to remain calm during the inevitable stock market “corrections” and I’ll give you some of my best ideas on how to outwit Dr. Bernanke at his own game.

And later, in this month’s special supplement, I’ll give you Six Pearls of Investment Wisdom, something we all need in order to make the most of our opportunities while keeping our risks low.

Free Enterprise

Every once in a while, a quirk in the market’s trading pattern presents an opportunity. That seems to be the case today with Enterprise Products Partners, one of the master limited partnerships in our model portfolio. Mr. Market is handing us a “freebie.”

September 2006 Issue & Supplement

Many income investments are already celebrating the Fed’s decision to pause. (Several of our utility stocks lately have bounced up to 52-week
highs.) However, I’m still uncovering juicy yields in some out-of-the-way places. I have compiled a menu of income plays that will deliver you
a generous cash payout of up to 7% annually, with ample scope for capital gains, too.

Can you feel the shakes? I sure can. Today’s action had all the telltale signs of a stock market in its last phase before a significant stumble.

The Rally Goes “Phhhht”

Gotta love Wall Street. Why, it was only four weeks ago that commentators were toasting the explosive New Year’s rally — and telling us to load up on last year’s winners (the red-hot commodity stocks, for example).
