May 2008 Issue & Supplement

These are uneasy times for investors. So why not make it just a little easier on yourself? We’re in the midst of a steep downturn for housing, and a credit crunch to boot. The economy is soft; oil prices, sky high. And on top of it all, an election looms, with the prospect of higher taxes by 2010, if not sooner.

Yet with all these (legitimate) things to worry about, it’s still possible to chart a safe — and reasonably calm — financial course through today’s troubled waters. In this month’s visit, I’ll show you how.

July 2007 Issue and Supplement

Will rising interest rates upset Wall Street’s applecart? In recent weeks, a sharp back-up in bond yields (which lifts borrowing costs for businesses and consumers alike) has given stock traders a case of the jitters. Is this the straw that will crack the bull’s spine? Or is it just another passing tremor?

I won’t keep you guessing. I don’t think this latest interest rate scare will derail the stock market’s advance for long. However, it’s also clear to me that the rate background is slowly shifting, worldwide, with major implications for stocks, bonds and a whole bunch of other investments.

In this month’s visit, I’ll show you what those implications are. Hint: It’s more crucial than ever to demand bargain prices—not just “fair” prices—for the stocks and mutual funds you buy. A value-plus-safety strategy like ours is tailor made for the new financial world we’re heading into.
