Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor reviews by our subscribers:

"I just renewed your Benjamin Graham Value Investor for a third year in a row, and plan on doing so many more times to come! I look forward to it each month.”—B. N.

"I am enjoying your letter immensely. My best performance this year has come from your recommendations.”—M. Elliott, Reston, Virginia

Roy you are awesome. Thank you so much for considering my request and adding the PEG ratio. I really appreciate that. Thanks and regards.”—R. Jayaraman, Novi, Michigan

“With every newsletter and e-mail update, Roy gives you the sense that he is looking out for you. He combines a focus on growth opportunities with solid companies that usually provide a dividend. He isn't looking for the "quick" buck but takes more of a longer term philosophy (1 to 2 years), which agrees with mine.”—M. Wolok, Potomac Falls, Virginia

“Dear Roy, Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions on airline stocks and credit card companies. I always appreciate your crystal clear thinking and succinct explanations; it has helped me make good investment decisions.”—P. Williams, Dayton, Ohio

“I like this man, and the Value advisory has done quite well $$$.”—W. Roston, Beverly Hills, California

"Roy, thank you for your thoughtful response to my questions. I continue to enjoy your newsletter; it provides valuable information which has enhanced my investment results. I really appreciate the time you took to answer my questions."—P. Williams, Dayton, Ohio

“This (Top 275 Value Stocks) chart is awesome thank you so much! Wish I would've joined years ago. I think a lot of self investors would be far more successful if they had a guide as useful as this.”—R. Lockheimer, Carlsbad, California

"Roy, I really appreciate the value approach of your newsletter.  I have subscribed for several years; this year I renewed my subscription for 5 years. I have witnessed some of the changes in your letter, and I think they are excellent decisions. The recent change in the format is also very good. You are constantly striving to produce a better product; in my opinion, you have succeeded."—P. Williams, Dayton, Ohio

"Hi Roy, I want to thank you for your most excellent investment newsletter and for the time you take to write back. The stocks I have bought from your letter (except for Target) have all done exceptionally well. I love reading your analysis and I find I take my time before investing as I am not always as familiar with the U.S. companies as many of your other readers may be."—Z.H., Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"Thank you, Roy! Your diligence, watchful eye and extraordinary knowledge provided me with a great stock recommendation earlier this month, and also saved the day for me today."—C. Braunhardt, Cary, North Carolina

"Hi Roy, I purchased Express Scripts (ESRX) several months ago on your recommendation and sold it yesterday following your "sell" recommendation. I made a gain of 35% within a relatively short space of time. I am also holding Qualcomm (QCOM) purchased at your recommendation as well. I will pull the sell trigger when you advise. You are literally putting money in people's wallets. Your advice has paid off handsomely many times over for my subscription. You are clearly very experienced, knowledgeable and passionate about what you do. Many thanks and keep up the good work."—R. Persaud, Scarborough, Ontario, Canada

"As a rookie investor, I am so glad I have found your website. I particularly like the max buy and min sell pricing. I have made more money from your advice in the last year than I have in the last 15 years with three different "advisors." I ditched them last year!!"—Pam Healey, Edmonton AB Canada 

"Roy, I've been enjoying watching the returns over the last year with my now fairly diversified holdings based strongly on the value models that you produce. As I look forward to the next couple of years and the potential for pull-backs, etc. I'm trying to pay more attention to the shifts in equities vs. bonds allocations you suggest as a defensive strategy. ... Thanks and keep up the great work. Your guidance has really helped me to focus and grow as an investor."—S. Hagberg, Burlingame, California

"I'm greatly appreciative of your service. I'm 30 years old and just started my own law firm and fortunately, business has been booming. Ever since getting back on my feet financially after a bout of unemployment, I've managed to save and invest about $3,000. My portfolio is up 10% thanks to you."—J. Pollard, New York, New York

"Nice to find a newsletter following Benjamin Graham approach to investing. I have always considered myself an investor rather that a speculator or trader but found it difficult to commit the time required. It is nice to have the leg work done and have the confidence to keep to my plan."—Gary Hails, Henderson, Nevada

"From your recent recommendations, I purchased QCOM and NUS and made several times the cost of my Cabot Benjamin Graham Value subscription."—S. Kunapuli, Bridgewater, New Jersey

"Morning, Mr. Ward: I like your new format! It's much easier to work with. Your selections appear to be performing so well for me that I am about to cancel my other stock newsletters. Your picks are doing so well that I'm just using your recommendations. Please keep up the great work!"—Dr. Charles Braunhardt, Cary, North Carolina

"Thanks for the sell notice on Disney. It's been one of the stalwarts in my portfolio. And congratulations on the milestone achievement! I've been following your newsletter for almost 3 years now and I've been very happy with it and most importantly, with the results I've gotten in my investing based on your advice. Keep up the great work!"—E. Loose, Thousand Oaks, California 

"Hello Roy, I am so pleased with the well explained answers to my questions on APPL and ABBV. I will be patient and wait on selling both until they meet your recommendations. I am very impressed at the fantastic returns I have received on many of your recommendations. I truly enjoy your service and your thoughts. Keep up the great work! "—P. Flanagan, Weymouth, Massachusetts

"Hi Roy, I strongly feel you hit the bull's eye selecting Baidu (amongst others) in the June Benjamin Graham Value Investor. What really attracted my attention like a magnet was your statement that your decision was made after going through 1,000 companies in your database. This showed you really did your homework. I took up an initial small position in the stock last week and it went up close to $2 the day after I bought it. I am happy to say I have more than recovered the marginal cost of subscribing to your Letter in under two months. I can tell you're from "old school." Thank you and keep up the excellent work."—R. Persaud, Toronto, Canada

"Roy, I want to sincerely thank you for your advice. I have had very good success following your system and investing in your recommended stocks. I place very high value on what you say and your insight into portfolio size and taking profits are just what I need to make me a better investor. Your advice also puts me at ease when the market is going crazy. Keep doing what you do. Thank you."—B. Van Wert, Jacksonville, Florida

"Best source of U.S. value stocks I have found."—T. D., Toronto, Canada

"This letter follows a consistent and proven style of investing. The strength of the letter is not only the stock selection, but Roy tells me when to buy and when to sell. That advice is priceless. Further, Roy's commentary in the letter is always very good ... and his availablity by e-mail to answer specific questions and give advice is wonderful bonus!"—R. J.  Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, Canada

"I like its calm and straightforward approach to investing, with a minimum of hype and total lack of hysteria that characterizes some other advice newsletters.

In the year and a half that I have been using it, it has helped me to refine my investment approach so that I have little anxiety about my portfolio."—T.B., Paris, France
