First make sure you are logged in. Then go to the "Newsletters" menu at the top of the page, and choose the newsletter you wish to view. Then click on either of the two buttons: PDF or Flash.

I am getting "Access Denied" errors when trying to view my advisory.

First, make sure you log in. If you are still receiving an error, follow these instructions on how to clear your cache and cookies, and then try logging in again.

I am not receiving my issues. What should I do? How do I Whitelist cabot.net?

For the first part, there are two likely possibilities: your subscription expired or your issues are going into your junk mail. You can check your subscription expiration date by logging in on the Cabot website. If your subscription is still active, check your junk mail folder. To prevent your newsletters from going into junk mail, put Cabot on your Whitelist. Find the instructions here.

I’d like to view my issue in PDF but it does not come up when I click on the button. What should I do?

To view a PDF on a PC, you need Adobe Reader. If you don’t have Adobe Reader installed on your PC, download and install Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader. Depending on your configuration, the PDF will then either open when you click it, or will be saved locally to your computer.

To view a PDF on a Mac: Click the PDF and it will open in the app Preview, which is preinstalled on all Macs.

If you are still having trouble viewing the current issue in PDF format, consider using the Flash alternative instead.

Cabot Wealth Advisory

Beach Weather in the Market

By Paul Goodwin on July 31, 2015

It’s the beginning of August, high summer in New England, and a bit of summer fatigue is setting in. Summer in New England is short, so we try to pack half a year’s worth of cookouts, beach days, hikes, kayaking, sight-seeing and other outside recreation into three months. It’s fun, but the pace can be a bit frantic, especially as the season enters its third act. Frankly, all I want to do now is lie on a beach somewhere and read a book. Read More >

Managing Your Stock Portfolio to the Market's Tune

By Michael Cintolo on July 30, 2015

In today’s Wealth Advisory, I’m doing something I’ve never done before—reprinting an entire piece I wrote in Cabot Growth Investor last Wednesday.

Do Your Stocks Have Borrowing Trouble?

By Nancy Zambell on July 28, 2015

Hostess is making news today as it is issuing $1.23 million in term loans—most of which will go toward paying $905 million in a special dividend to its private shareholders—which I may add, is also more than two times what the buyers paid for this tasty snack business, and triples the company’s debt. According to Bloomberg, these types of deals grew to nearly $16 billion in the second quarter, the highest level in the past 12 months. I’m not making a judgment for or against this action. I just want to make a point that this debt, or leverage recapitalization—spurred by low interest rates—is increasingly becoming a method in which private equity holders get their money back—without selling the business. But it does burden the company with additional debt, which isn’t going to fund company expansion or operations.Read More >
