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!

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 >

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 >
