In Case You Missed It
When I first applied for a job at Cabot, I spent some time exploring the main Cabot website and learned what I could about the various newsletters. We publish a fair number--11 paid publications and two free--and what struck me right off is how different each publication actually is.
Our publications focus on growth and momentum stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), emerging markets and value investing just to name a few. It’s because of this variety of publications that we can say there’s something for almost everyone. I encourage you to look at each publication’s page on our website, but today I’d also like to give you a capsule description of each publication.
A brief word: Each Cabot publication varies in its strategy and investment focus, so it’s a good idea to think about your goals before you subscribe.
The Cabot publications are:
Cabot Growth Investor, our flagship newsletter, was founded in 1970. We recommend it for all stock investors seeking growth. Each week, you’ll find a Model Portfolio (no more than 12 stocks) of our best recommendations for a diversified growth portfolio along with Cabot’s proprietary market timing indicators to keep you on the right side of the market. Michael Cintolo is the editor of Cabot Market Letter. The Hulbert Financial Digest ranked Cabot Growth Investor as #4 for five-year performance out of 150 newsletters as of December 31, 2011.

For faster-paced stocks, Cabot Top Ten Trader is the newsletter to follow. It brings investors the 10 stocks with the greatest momentum in the market each week. Top Ten is a great source of new ideas because many stocks are discovered here before most investors are aware of them. Editor Michael Cintolo uses our proprietary stock picking software to uncover the fastest-growing stocks. The report is best suited for aggressive investors. Click here to learn more.
If you’re looking for diversification outside the U.S., Cabot Global Stocks Explorer provides guidance on the best stocks in the emerging markets. Edited by emerging markets specialist Paul Goodwin, the Report uses all of Cabot’s time-tested growth investing techniques to select stocks that trade as American Depositary Receipts, or ADRs, on U.S. exchanges. The countries these stocks are from are growing fast, providing enormous opportunity. Click here to learn more.
Some investors prefer conservative investments in undervalued companies, and Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor was made for them. The Letter, edited by J. Royden Ward, a longtime investment researcher and analyst, provides investors with two different value-investing models and all the details you need to invest safely over the long term. If you prefer to buy and hold, Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor is for you. Click here to learn more.
Many beginning investors choose Cabot Stock of the Month because it offers stocks selected from across the spectrum of Cabot’s publications. One month it may be an energy stock, a momentum stock, a value stock, a growth stock or an emerging markets stock--but it’s always the best stock for current market conditions. Cabot’s publisher and chief investment strategist, Timothy Lutts, is the analyst and editor of Cabot Stock of the Month. Tim provides in-depth analysis of his selection as well as regular updates on previously recommended stocks to provide you with continuous guidance. Click here to learn more.
Cabot Small-Cap Confidential
is a limited-subscription publication. Editor and lifelong investor Tyler Laundon provides in-depth research about one small company each month--these are companies with revolutionary new technologies that will grow into winning investments over time. These little-known stocks require patience because they take time to mature. This publication is limited to 500 subscribers. Click here to learn more.
In Cabot Options Trader, options trading expert Jacob Mintz delivers his step-by-step system for options trading.
