Mike CintoloA growth stock and market timing expert, Michael Cintolo is chief analyst of Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader. He is also a regular contributor to Cabot's free e-newsletter, Cabot Wealth Advisory.

Mike joined Cabot in 1999, and has witnessed one of the greatest bull markets in history, one of the greatest bear markets in history, the multi-year recovery and the market break of 2008. Over the years, he has uncovered exceptional growth stocks and helped to create new tools and rules for buying and selling stocks. Perhaps most notable was his development of the proprietary trend-following market timing system,
Cabot Tides, that has helped Cabot place among the top handful of investment advisories numerous times.

Cabot Growth Investor has been consistently recognized for outstanding performance by Hulbert Financial Digest and Timer Digest. It was named as one of the
Top 10 Letters of 2010 by MarketWatch and one of only nine newsletters in Hulbert's 2010 Honor Roll for performance in both up and down markets since 1998. It is also consistently ranked among the Top Ten Newsletters by Timer Digest for long-term performance.

Mike discovered his passion—following and analyzing the stock market—thanks to his father, who subscribed to Cabot Growth Investor. Within a year of being introduced to the Cabot system, Mike was studying market history and using Cabot’s general approaches to write his own informal newsletter, distributed by email to more than 40 friends and family members.

An avid student of the market, Mike offers his market and stock analysis on the Cabot Weekly Review video and is a regular contributor to SeekingAlpha.com, AOL Money & Finance, TopStockAnalysts.com and TheStockAdvisor.com. He holds a B.S. in Finance from University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
