Investing Advice

The stock market can be a scary place to try and navigate on your own. For many of us, any investing advice is more than welcome. That’s where we come in.

Our approach to offering investing advice is fairly unique.

We don’t advise quick trades based on the news of the day or what the talking heads on CNBC are jabbering on about. Nor do we follow the ultra-conservative route of investing in low-cost, low-risk – and often low-reward – index funds. Instead, we strike a balance between trying to beat the market – which we’ve been doing for more than 40 years – while managing risk so that you can maintain your capital.

Our investing advice comes in a variety of packages, ranging from value-oriented monthly publications focused solely on long-term investments to weekly newsletters targeting growth stocks to short-term trading services featuring recommendations that can pay off in a week or two.

But what truly separates Cabot Investing Advice is our experience, our track record and our history of making independent investors like you money for nearly half a century.

When seeking investment advice, trust is important. As an investor, you want to be able to trust the person that’s offering you tips on what stocks to buy or what options trades to make. At Cabot, we recognize that trust has to be earned.

You don’t want to simply be told how great someone’s advice is. You want to see proof.

Well, here’s some proof : 

  • Cabot Market Letter: 99% return since inception vs. 45% return for the S&P 500
  • Benjamin Graham Value Investor: 260% return vs. 120% return for the S&P 500
  • Stock of the Month: 115% return vs. 11% return for the S&P 500
  • Cabot Options Trader: 310% return vs. 23% for the S&P 500

(as of April 2015)

You get the point. We’ve made our subscribers a lot of money – more than they would have made had they merely bought the SPY or another index.

Consistently strong performance over many years is what earns your trust. At Cabot Investing Advice, we hope to continue earning your trust for years – and decades – to come.

Church

Church & Dwight owns the Arm & Hammer, OxiClean and Trojan brands, as well as some smaller, faster-growing brands. But even after a 35% climb in 18 months, Church & Dwight still looks strong and poised for further gains.

Restoration Hardware

Restoration Hardware (RH) has been on my watch list for a long time. Believe it or not, I’ve been watching the stock for about a year—it was my Top Pick at the 2014 Cabot Investors Conference, nearly one year ago—and now, after a ton of starts and stops, shares look poised to get going.

By Nancy Zambell on September 02, 2015

Apple vs. Tesla

By Timothy Lutts on September 01, 2015

Back on July 27, in a column titled “Sell Apple,” I told you that Apple, the world’s most loved and most highly valued company, was likely past its point of peak perception. I suggested that even though the company would continue to grow, its stock would suffer as investors slowly sold and went searching for the next Apple. (Precedents include both IBM and Microsoft.) Since that day, of course, the broad market has fallen apart, and it’s enlightening to see how certain stocks have behaved since then.Read More >
