October 2008 Issue

Don’t give up the ship! No, we haven’t heard the last of the financial
explosions that have wracked Wall Street for the past year or more. In
September alone, Lehman Brothers vanished, hard on the heels of Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac. AIG, under the gun, sold 80% of itself to the
federal government. And another major bank or brokerage firm may face a
life-or-death struggle before calm returns.

As awful as the headlines may seem, though, the crisis is closer to its end
than its beginning. Better times are coming, probably before year-end but
almost certainly in 2009.

In this month’s visit, I’ll share with you three reasons to be hopeful about
the economy and stock market over the next 12�15 months. Pundits are
largely ignoring these positives, which means that share prices could leap
higher, and faster, than most folks expect if just a couple of things go right.
I’ll also reveal the one type of stock that will likely outpace 75% of the
market in the year ahead–and a simple way to add this winning horse to
your stable. (Hint: The ticker symbol is MDY!)

September 2008 Issue & Supplement

As they say at McDonald’s, you deserve a break today–and now you’ve
got one, thanks to the recent sharp drop in oil prices. I won’t try to
tell you that lower fuel costs, alone, will cure the turmoil in world financial
markets. They won’t. But oil’s spill carries major implications for investors.
What are they? Who stands to benefit the most? Should you sell your oil
stocks right now–or buy more?
In this month’s visit, I’ll give you my straight-from-the-shoulder answers
to these crucial questions. Hint: While the drop in energy prices will
undoubtedly help put the U.S. and other economies back on a stronger
growth track, we aren’t going to be pumping $2 gasoline again anytime
soon. Lay your investment plans accordingly!

September 7, 2007

Building a big, broad, beautiful base! Stock prices backtracked this week, with today’s session canceling the modest gains that had built up after Labor Day. But this type of whippy, back-and-forth action is just what the market needs to form a solid base for the rally we’re expecting in the fourth quarter.

May 11, 2007

Up, down and all around! Stock prices started off this week in rally mode, then stumbled badly on Thursday but came roaring back on Friday — for essentially no change on the week. So is this the end of the pullback we called for on last Friday’s Hotline?

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 15, 2006

Haste makes waste! Stock prices took a nice bounce this week, lifting the Dow industrials to within striking distance of an all-time (that’s ALL-time) high. We’re encouraged by the market’s action, because it tends to confirm our thesis that the next two years will be a wonderful period to own stocks.

Sell Target, Home Depot!

p>We got some great news out of the retail space last night. <bTarget Corp. (NYSE: TGT) will be selling its laggard Marshall Field’s unit, as well as some of its Mervyn’s stores, to May’s for $3.2 billion. It’s a wonderful price, well above what Wall Street had expected.

NOW THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!

One-way markets make me uncomfortable. Up or down. So I’m delighted with the sharp sell-off we’ve seen on Wall Street the past two days. Stocks were getting ridiculously overextended. Now we’ve had a nice “correction” amounting to 2.3% on the S&P 500 index. The market could drop a couple of percentage points more, but I don’t foresee a debacle. Use the weakness to build up your holdings of our recommended stocks and mutual funds.
