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.
-- 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.
