Double Your Money with Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report

Dear Fellow Investor,

When I'm talking to people about investing in emerging market stocks, I'm always aware that I have two choices. The first is to spout statistics:

*    About China's 1.3 billion people
*    The build-out of Internet access
*    The rising power of the Chinese consumer
*    The country's decade of double-digit economic growth
*    Colossal investment in infrastructure.

There's no doubt that these are impressive factors, and they certainly point to a national economy that's in high gear. But I don't think they tell the whole story.

If a growing economy automatically produced stock market gains, an investor's job would be very simple. You could just buy an ETF for that country and watch the money roll in.

But stock markets are too complex to reward that strategy, as investors are always looking ahead by six months or so. And just drawing a straight line that extends the current trend is almost sure to miss the mark.

As the emerging markets develop, their economies often rocket ahead, lifted by industrialization, urbanization, entrepreneurship and foreign direct investment. 

And the stocks of the companies doing business in these countries can blast off right along with them. This is what investors in Baidu (BIDU), China Mobile (CHL) and Ctrip.com (CTRP) found out a few years ago.

That's when Cabot China & Emerging Markets Report beat all investment advisories hands-down, doubling readers' retirement money four times in seven years.  

Just last year:…

Our top auto stock was up 127% in four months.
Our top entertainment stock was up 113% in 10 months.
Our top Internet stock was up 106% in six months.
Our top social networking stock was up 115% in five months.

And our China stocks continue to out perform the market!

Our instant messaging stock is up 25% in three months.
Our Amazon-like online retail stock is up 36% in three months.
Our flash sale online retail stock is up 35% in two months.
Our online games stock is up 23% in one month.

All while our entire portfolio is up 42% since the beginning of the year!

Another Dire Stock Market Prediction: Whoopee!

By Paul Goodwin on April 29, 2016

McKinsey & Company is a big consulting firm—9,000 consultants and 2,000 researchers around the world—that companies hire when they need advice. I get research reports from McKinsey every once in a while, and they’re usually beautifully designed, well written and interesting in an abstract kind of way. The report that reached my email in-box on Thursday had the intriguing title: “Why investors may need to lower their sights.” (Note how the avoidance of Capital Letters makes things a little edgier; that’s the McKinsey Difference!) It took seven people to write this little piece of analysis, so you know it must contain really valuable information. Read More >

The One Thing You Can Do that Warren Buffett Can’t

By Paul Goodwin on April 28, 2016

Everybody (including me) loves Warren Buffett. He’s rich. He’s a major philanthropist who actively exhorts other rich people to give away their money. And he looks like an ideal grandfather ought to look: gray, smiling and enjoying life. But I do think Warren Buffett has a little bit of a regret, and it’s this ...Read More >

2 Strategies to Find Leading Value Stocks

By J. Royden Ward on April 26, 2016

The two strategies that I use to find consistent winning stocks involve evaluating sales and book value. I prefer sales and book value rather than earnings, because earnings fluctuate wildly and are often engineered, using an endless system of “adjustments.” Valuations based on sales or book values are more reliable when assessing the past, present and future prospects for companies.Read More >
