More new highs in store! Stock prices found their footing this week as bond yields finally backed off a bit. Given the momentum now in place, it’s almost certain that the blue chip stock indexes will break out to additional new all-time highs before the end of June.

April 2007 Issue

So it finally happened. The stock market’s Energizer Bunny keeled over. All right, what now?

Legions of investors are groping in the dark, unnerved and uncertain of their next move. Not you and I. We were expecting a timeout for the bull—and we’re taking full advantage of it.

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how to use the recent unsettled market conditions to fine-tune your portfolio for greater profits. Bargain-priced stocks are popping up all over, including two blue chip stalwarts from our model portfolio that now offer potential returns of 20% or more in the coming year with much lower risk than normal.

I’m also warming again to global investing (a very successful theme of ours in the past couple of years). After a brief absence, we’re back buying China and India, the two most powerful growth engines of the developing world. If you prefer a more diversified approach, I’ve got a pair of globetrotting mutual funds—both among the best in their class—that will take you anywhere you could want to go.

The skies are bluer, the days are warmer! Stock prices shot up this week, with almost half the gains occurring even before the Federal Reserve hinted Wednesday that there will be no more rate hikes. Investors are clearly starting to look on the bright side again.

February 16, 2007

Still hanging on! Stocks bounced back again this week, erasing all of last week’s losses and then some. In fact, the blue chip S&P 500 index finished today at its highest weekly close since September 2000.

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.

May 5, 2006

Still hopping! Stock prices zoomed ahead this week, with today’s jobs report fueling hopes that the Federal Reserve might soon end its long string of rate hikes. As of tonight’s close, the Dow industrials are less than 150 points from their all-time high, set more than six years ago.

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.

January 2006 Issue & Supplement

In this month’s visit, I’ll explain how a decent cash reserve can add sparkle to your investment results in 2006. I’ll also introduce you to the highestyielding safe vehicles for your cash, such as FDIC-insured bank accounts that will boost your income over almost any money market fund. For the belt-and-suspenders folks among us, I’ll show you how to buy T-bills (the safest investment on Earth) without ncurring a dime in commissions.
