Up on Stocks

It’s getting to be a good time to buy stocks again.

I turned cautious last April, and I went on the Neil Cavuto show to say so. I’ve stayed cautious until now, telling Brush Up on Stocks subscribers throughout to trim trades, get off margin, pull back to core positions, and raise cash.

It was a bit of a wait, but we didn’t miss out on any upside since April. The market got stuck in a trading range. Now, the tables are turning and it is shaping up to be a much better time to buy stocks. I am not saying we’ve reached the bottom. No one can make that call.

But a bullish combination is developing.

Professional investors and the public are turning fairly negative. While those in the know, or insiders, are turning downright bullish. Historically, this is a good time to buy stocks.

But which ones?

It’s a tough market out there when you’re on your own. Stocks blow up. Dodgy brokers. Accounting scandals. Wall Street conflicts of interest. The parade of TV talking heads, talking up their books because it helps them, not you. Or else just plain ranting like mad men.

Any number of hazards can sink you.

To stand a chance you need someone on the inside working for you — someone to uncover the winners and spot the sharks. You need an inside advantage.

That’s where I come in. This is what I do. Dedicated, full time. No conflicts of interest. No distractions. I study the markets all day, full time for a living. I’ve done this for decades, so I have seasoned experience to share, applying skills I’ve learned at places like Columbia Business School, Johns Hopkins University, the New York Times and the Economist Group.

What’s more, you can be sure I’m offering you more than just a theoretical list of stocks. Because most likely, whatever stocks I suggest for you, I’ll own, too. My retirement is riding on this, as well.

To select stocks, I use a combination of factors like insider buying trends, valuation analysis, ownership analysis, financial strength, and sector trend and macro analysis. It’s worked pretty well over the years, as you can see on my performance page.

More on my approach

Still not convinced? Here’s more on who I am and what I do.

1) Great record. My performance page on this website shows that over a four year period my stock suggestions outperformed 70% of the time. (Click here for performance).

2) Unique approach. To find the best stocks, I use a unique system that looks for out of favor stocks with the potential to bounce back sharply based on evidence of: Smart money purchasing and ownership, solid growth opportunities, cheap relative valuation, financial strength and strong cash flow, and opportune sentiment extremes. I suggest about 10-20 new stocks per month.

It helps that I’m in regular contact with some of the best money managers, economists and strategists around, in my job as a stock market commentator. All stock suggestions are based on my own independent research and unique quantitative system, though.

3) Experience. I have over two decades of experience analyzing stocks and economic trends for the New York Times, The Economist Group, Dow Jones, Money magazine, and MSN Money. I developed financial, economic and geopolitical analytical skills at Columbia Business School and Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.

4) Unbiased. I’m an unbiased source of analysis. No conflict of interest. Unlike a lot of brokers and analysts at investment banks, I don’t have any hidden agendas. I don’t have an inventory of product to push on you for commissions.

To make my stock letter more accessible, I price it well under market. Comparison shop and you will see that my letter costs 30% to 80% less than competing products, and it publishes twice a month with regular updates throughout the month. Depending on market conditions, I suggest about ten to 20 new stocks a month.
