Review of Newsletters for Picking Stocks


I got a private message from an IT member asking which newsletters I subscribe to for picking stocks. I've been meaning to do a post on this for some time now, so I thought would post my reply in our forum.

Casey Research -- I subscribe to their BIG GOLD newsletter ($129 per year) and their Casey Energy Dividends report ($79 per year). I am a big fan of the Casey Research team and will likely acquire a subscription to the Casey International Speculator ($1,000 per year) soon as well. If you're interested in metals, energy, technology investing, or retirement planning, I think they have something for you.

The Mining Speculator -- This report is $99 per year. Publications are a bit sporadic; usually every month, but not always, and sometimes twice a month. The stock focuses on tiny gold mining stocks that the author, Greg McCoach, finds promising. I think this is a pretty solid newsletter if you're interested in buying mining stocks with a market cap under $200 million, and I've invested in two companies largely because of the introduction that came via this newsletter. A great value deal, although if you're serious about investing in tiny gold stocks, I would recommend having this newsletter as well as some others. McCoach focuses a lot on stocks in the Yukon -- personally, I like this, although for a whole portfolio, I want a bit more diversification, and so I don't think this newsletter is good to rely on as a sole source. (Although, to be fair, a portfolio of newsletters is in my opinion the best approach.)

The Complete Investor -- $39 a year for weekly commentary and an extensive list of stock recommendations across many industries. I'm a big fan of Stephen Leeb's commentary, especially his book Red Alert, which is why I subscribed. I was a bit disappointed with the newsletter, and I don't think I'll renew. You also get a bunch of stuff in the mail -- like postal mail -- and they rent out your address so you'll get a fair amount of mailers. Some will find this annoying, although I actually found this to be the best part, as the mailers are pretty targeted and contain good information and different perspectives. My main gripe with the newsletter is that I prefer newsletters that have a very specific focus, whether it is dividend stocks, a specific sector, etc. This newsletter is very broad, and it simply doesn't suit my taste. However, if you like a broad approach, this might be of interest to you.

Thanks for sharing, Simit.

I subscribe to The Morgan Report. I am a Basic Plus member which costs $269.99 a year (prices are going up at the end of the year, but you can lock in the lower rate by subscribing before then). I discovered David Morgan on Youtube while browsing through videos on the gold and silver markets, inflation, etc. Here's a brief excerpt from his website:

"Seduced by silver at the tender age of 11, David Morgan started investing in the stock market while still a teenager.

A precious metals aficionado armed with degrees in finance and economics as well as engineering, he created the Silver-Investor.com website and originated The Morgan Report, a monthly that covers economic news, overall financial health of the global economy, currency problems, and the key reasons for investing in precious metals.
"

I am also enjoying a 7-day free trial at Mike Maloney's Wealth Cycles website. I like it so far, and might end up buying a membership. They start at $26.95 a month. What I like about his philosophy is that it ignores nominal value ($ cost) of assets and focuses on whether or not assets are over or under valued. Inflation skews people's perceptions of value and even when your stock or other asset is rising (or just staying flat) in terms of dollars, it may be robbing you in the long run because your money is losing purchasing power. Anyway, it's definitely worth checking out.

For anyone interested in the Wyckoff Method or the ES - I would recommend David Weis' free nightly newsletter.

While I don't subscribe to any of their pay newsletters, I also really like the Casey Group.

Cheers

I just bought a membership at FINANCIAL SENSE | Applying Common Sense to the Markets and it's worth every penny. That place has a wealth of information and insight, and it's only $10/month. Who can't afford that? A part-time cashier could afford $10/month. LOL There's lots of free stuff too, but the News Hour radio show/podcast is reserved for members only. They have archived shows going back for years, and feature many of our favorite economists and investors. Definitely worth checking out.
