Become a Better Investor
Find the Investing System that's Right for You
Please join me on the evening of August 14, right here in historic Salem, Massachusetts.
We’ll talk about stocks. We’ll share stories about winners and losers. We can even share pictures of our kids—if that’s what you want.
The location of our rendezvous, in the library of the historic Hawthorne Hotel, is unlike anyplace you’ve ever been before. It’s a replica of the interior of an old-time sailing ship, with wooden beams overhead giving the sense that the deep blue ocean is right outside the door.
Instead, right outside the door is the rest of the elegant Hawthorne Hotel, where I’ll be leading my staff of eight editors in a two-day conference that has one single purpose: making you a better investor.
The cocktail reception is a nice way for us to get to know each other, and I promise you, my Cabot editors are not just experts in their respective investing specialties, they’re actually nice people, as well. So that should be fun.
On the next day, we’ll get down to business, starting with my opening remarks that will lay out what I see as one of the biggest challenges for investors today, which is…
…Refining Your Own Investing System
Not so long ago, experts tended to be better investors because they had better information. Now, thanks to Internet, the problem is not too little information but too much information! Any minute of any day, you can get on the Internet and find someone recommending penny stocks, oil stocks and momentum stocks. Some will tell you value investing is the route to riches. Other will swear that growth stocks are the way to go. Still others will tout the merits of high-yielding MLPs and preferred stocks.
It’s enough to leave anybody confused.
My Mission is to Eliminate that Confusion
My mission is to help you discover and refine the investing system that is best for you, so you not only achieve your investing goals, but you feel comfortable about the process.
And you feel comfortable about ignoring all the information that’s irrelevant to you.
You see, there’s no one system that is right for everyone.
But there IS an investing system that is right for you. And over the two days of the Cabot Investor Conference, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the favorite techniques of every one of the Cabot editors as you work to perfect YOUR investing system. For example:
Roy Ward, editor of Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor, will explain exactly how his time-tested system works, how he derives his Maximum Buy and Minimum Sell Prices, and the concept of Margin of Safety. He’ll explain how Warren Buffett has modified the Benjamin Graham System for his own purposes. And Roy will explain how his portfolio has beaten Warren Buffet’s over the past 17 years.
If you’re a value investor—new or experienced—you’ll learn a lot from Roy.
Mike Cintolo, Cabot’s V.P. of Investments, and editor of both Cabot Market Letter and Cabot Top Ten Trader, will talk about Cabot’s classic growth investing system. He’ll explain how it works for short-term investments and how the rules are modified as a stock evolves from a short-term holding to a long-term holding. And he’ll review the many facets of his risk-management process, from market timing to position sizing to partial profit-taking and stop losses.
Finally, but by no means least, Mike will conduct a special breakout session titled “Chart School.” If you find yourself intimidated by charts, this is one session you shouldn’t miss.
For the math-centric who thrive on options, we’re proud to present Jacob Mintz, who joined the Cabot team as editor of Cabot Options Trader this year and has done a superb job. From straight puts and calls to bull spreads to covered calls, Jacob is a master, and a patient teacher, too. Since his February debut, he’s brought his followers 129% profits in an XLF put, 97% profit in a MMM put, and 86% in a UAL bear put spread.
For patient investors who want to discover small-cap stocks with the potential to grow many-fold, there is no better resource than Thomas Garrity, who’s been ably guiding Cabot Small-Cap Confidential since 2007. Thomas marches to his own drummer and as a result, he’s been able to steer his readers to monster profits like Cerus (CERS), up 85%, Nanosphere (NSPH), up 137% and Uni-Pixel (UNXL) up 262%.
Big, Safe Dividends
For anyone who wants yields better than the banks are paying these days, Chloe Lutts Jensen has some great suggestions, from high-yielding stocks that are undervalued—and thus provide opportunity for great capital appreciation as well—to preferred stocks, REITS and MLPs. As editor of Dick Davis Dividend Digest, Chloe sees the experts’ best suggestions, and she’ll pass them on to you.
Emerging Market Stocks, Options, ETFs Momentum and more
There’s much more of course, including Paul Goodwin on Emerging Markets stocks, Robin Carpenter on ETFs and Mike Cintolo on Momentum Investing.
There’s breakfast both days and a great New England lunch on Thursday.
And there’s even a visit to our offices, to see first-hand where the magic happens.
But the clock is ticking.
There are only 35 hotel rooms left at the special rate!
So if you’re interested, I urge you to reserve your spot now.
Alternatively, simply call our Customer Service Manager Andre at 800-326-8826.
Yours in pursuit of wisdom and wealth,
President, Cabot Heritage Corporation
