Investors and the Genuinely Horrible Day

There’s nothing like a genuinely horrible day to get the attention of equity investors. Financial websites and online brokerage accounts must have registered a spike in visitors this morning as the investors who suffered through Monday’s storm tried to figure out which way the market’s winds might blow on Tuesday.

Why Greece's Default Matters

It’s a critical time for Greece, its countrymen, the nations that hold its debt and its investors. The big question is: Will Greece default on its 1.5 billion euro debt payments that are due tomorrow on the 322 billion euros that it owes to other countries?

A Straight Answer About Sina

On June 18, I received an email from a subscriber to Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report, the investment advisory for which I’m Chief Analyst. Here’s what I wrote back to my subscriber, slightly edited.

The Most Common Portfolio Management Mistake

Diversification is one of the first portfolio management principles equity investors learn. It’s simple enough to understand; it’s simply an extrapolation of the old advice not to put all your eggs in one basket. And it’s good advice. But most investors have a narrow view of what diversification means.

The S&P 500's Dividend Aristocrats

Dividends are the most reliable indication of a company’s growth and stability. Dividends are the payments of a company’s hard-earned profits. A company’s ability to continually pay dividends provides concrete evidence that the company is performing well.

Cabot Weekly Review

The Four Supported Industries| Cabot Weekly Review

In this week’s review, Paul Goodwin of the Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report points out that not much has changed in the market for a while. The major indexes are all stuck in sideway ranges as investors try to sort out the probability and fallout of a Greek default, the timing and size of a Fed interest rate increase and the future of the stressed-out Chinese economy. It’s not a market that’s rewarding index, sector and industry investors. He looks at four industries that are actually getting support from economic conditions and he gives a couple of examples of sound stocks in each industry. 

Cabot Chart School

Managing Your Portfolio for Maximum Profits

In this third of three videos in Cabot's stock chart school series, “How to Invest in Growth Stocks,” Cabot Market Letter editor Mike Cintolo takes you through portfolio management -- a skill that most people don't really develop and which leads to them getting sub-par returns. He discusses the concept of portfolio management in general, as well as looking at some specific trades Cabot has made in the past.

Stock Picks

Norwegian Cruise Lines

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCLH) is one of the “big 3” in the cruise industry. There’s a real growth story here thanks to a steady expansion in the firm’s ship count, along with an acquisition last year that gives it exposure to the high end of the market.

Constellation Brands

This maker of wines (Mondavi, Clos du Bois, Ravenswood), beer (Corona, Modelo and TsingTao) and spirits (Svedka, Black Velvet and Paul Masson) gets 89% of its revenues from the U.S. and 11% from Canada, so the strong dollar isn’t hurting.

Cheetah Mobile

My stock pick this week is a Chinese stock that was featured in the Other Stocks of Interest section of Cabot Growth Investor. (It’s also in the portfolio of Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report).
