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.

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.

August 2006 Issue

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to reserve your seat for the ride up. Surprisingly, perhaps, some of tomorrow’s biggest winners
are likely to be stocks that most investors have heard of—but don’t happen to own. I’ll point you to three, in particular, that should
comfortably double your wealth over the next three to five years.

February 2006 Issue

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to safeguard your wealth during this tricky period of increasingly tight money, while positioning yourself for the wave of prosperity I expect once the Bernanke Fed reverses course and starts lowering interest rates (probably in late 2006 or early 2007).  Bonds and cash are part of the plan, for sure.  However, I’ve also pinpointed two stocks for you with the best potential to score double-digit gains this year, regardless of how long it takes the Fed to do an about-face.

Beam Me Up, Scotty!

The stock market finally looks as if it’s ready to mount a decent rally. Bond yields have nosedived over the past few weeks, improving the relative valuation of most stocks. Meanwhile, the pullback in the major stock indexes is gradually losing “oomph,” a sign that a tradable bottom should now be at hand.

Getting Over the Jitters

The stock market finally seems to be shaking off a bit of its January malaise. (Better late than never!) Today’s 91-point rally in the Dow, coming after four down days in a row, could set the stage for a surprisingly strong bounce into early February.
