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.

Making Sense of Bonds and Gold

It’s a contradiction—or is it? Two important groups of players in the financial markets seem to be flashing polar-opposite signals. Today, Treasury bond yields plunged to a 10-month low. (Wonderful for our zero coupons!) At the same time, gold prices surged $12 an ounce, to their highest level since early August.

The Earnings Circus

Earnings season is in full swing again on Wall Street. Some advisors may ooh and ahh over corporate quarterly reports, but I see the earnings circus as a great opportunity for long-term investors to act while other folks overreact.

Scratching for Bargains

After a huge stock market run-up such as we’ve seen over the past three months, it’s tough to find bargains. Most stocks are trading well above near-term support on their price charts. But a few good values are popping up here and there.

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.

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.

August 11, 2006

Finishing the job! Stock prices backed off this week as investors digested news that the Federal Reserve has decided to put its credit-tightening campaign on hold. We’re pleased with the way the market is forming a broad, solid bottom here.
