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.

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.

Grinding Bottom

Might as well get used to it, because this is the pattern we’re likely to see repeated several more times over the next six to 12 months. Stocks slid today as investor anxiety mounted over the latest Bush administration miscue (the hastily quashed Miers nomination).

Oil Drop

Oil prices seem to have topped out — for the time being anyway. That may come as a relief for the broader stock market, but it’s also triggering a near-term “correction” for energy stocks. Should you fear the pullback or welcome it?

April 2005 Issue

It’s an open secret. After five years of wrestling witha a stingy stock market, a lot of investors feel torn. But I would hate to see you miss out on the superb opportunities for long-term growth that are waiting to be plucked in today’s market. I’m talking about a small, select group of blue chip stocks so cheap that you’ll want to hold them for years and years.
