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.

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.

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.

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.

June 2006 Issue

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you where these bargains lie buried. I’ll also give you an update on our ever-popular income feature, the Incredible Dividend Machine. A boon for retirees, the Machine lets you earn a dividend check every month of the year, with low turnover (minimal exposure to capital gains taxes) and none of the ongoing expenses of a mutual fund.

June 2005 Issue

This month, I’ll show you how to make the smartest use of any further “down time” Mr. Market may grant us in the next few weeks. More and more bargains are turning up on my radar screen, including a brand-new name for us: one of the world’s largest and best-run management-consulting firms, now at a whopping 50% discount to my estimated share price three to four years out. Yet I’ll bet you’ve never heard of the stock. (There’s a curious reason why.)

Leveling Off

Cute little rally we’ve had on Wall Street, isn’t it? As measured by the S&P 500 index, stocks have jumped 5% since April 20, with today’s session marking the high close so far for the move. I’m expecting more gains as we push into June.

November 2004 Issue & Supplement

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to chart a winning strategy. Our twin watchwords are safe and cheap. By scooping up quality investments at bargain prices, we’ll stay well ahead of the crowd. I’ve got two new stock picks for you that fit the bill perfectly. Both are giant corporations with rock-solid franchises. Yet both are trading at remarkably modest valuations (in a market that isn’t exactly teeming with bargains). Lock these blue chips away and watch your wealth zoom 50% or more in the next 24–36 months.
