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.

Sell Apple

By Timothy Lutts on July 27, 2015

Today, I’m writing on a MacBook Pro. This morning I did my morning crossword puzzle on my iPad. All day long, my iPhone is by my side. My home Wi-Fi comes from Apple AirPorts. And some nights, I stream entertainment through my Apple TV. In short, I love Apple products, and I expect to continue using them for many more years. But one of the most important market truisms is this: “The company is not the stock.”Read More >

Sunny Days

By Paul Goodwin on July 24, 2015

Every year, usually on a Thursday in July, most of the Cabot crew gathers in Salem, jumps into cars and heads north. With bathroom breaks and a stop to purchase refreshing beverages (ahem), the group drives through New Hampshire’s tiny seacoast neck and winds up in Kittery, Maine, at the Chauncey Creek Lobster Pound. There, lobsters, baked beans, coleslaw, steamers, mussels and (importantly) chips are consumed and the store of tissue-restoring beverages is significantly reduced.Read More >

What Will Rising Interest Rates Really Mean for the Stock Market

By Chloe Lutts Jensen on July 23, 2015

Long before Greece and China started making the largest headlines every day, investors everywhere thought rising interest rates would cause the next big market decline. (As my father always says, trouble comes from where you least expect it.) Now that Greece has secured a respite from its lenders, interest rates are moving back to the top of investors’ list of things to worry about—especially since Janet Yellen just reiterated last week that the Fed expects to begin raising rates by the end of the year.Read More >
