Advisory Services

Cabot Growth Investor

Bi-weekly Update August 4: he major indexes continue to act well in the wake of our Cabot Tides buy signal, which is clearly a good thing. That said, the vast majority of action remains in stocks that are buried on their charts, while those that acted resilient in recent months are mostly just sitting around.

Alert August 3: Today, we’re going to add a half-sized stake in Enphase Energy (ENPH), leaving us with around 70% in cash. We could have another new addition or two (or, ideally, average up in one of our current names if it reacts well to earnings), but today we’ll nibble on ENPH and go from there.

Bi-weekly Issue June 30: The first half of the year is in the books, and it was a doozy, but we’re glad we’ve been able to sidestep a good chunk of the historic damage. Now the focus is on what’s next, and it’s important to respect the evidence today (we’re remaining highly defensive) but also stay flexible; we have seen some relative strength in some growth areas and we’re open to whatever comes.

Cabot Top Ten Trader

Movers & Shakers August 5: On the whole it’s looking like a consolidation week for the market—the Nasdaq is up around 2.5% on the week, though just about every other major index was either flat (broader indexes) or up a bit (S&P 500).

Weekly Issue August 1: This week’s list has a wide range of names in a variety of sectors. Our Top Pick has a reliable story and solid growth, and its sector is suddenly acting very spunky. Try to buy on dips after the recent move.

Cabot Options Trader Alert Basic and Pro August 4: Sell a Third of Existing Position: Sell a Third of Your XBI January 84 Calls for $12.30 or more.

Cabot Options Trader Basic Weekly Update August 4: The approximate 13% surge in the Nasdaq the past month has been a big win for our QQQ December 285 calls. To refresh, we bought these calls for $26.10, and today those calls are worth $47.5, or a profit of approximately 82%.

Cabot Options Trader Trade Pro Alert August 4: Adjust Existing Position: Against QQQ December 285 Calls, Sell the QQQ December 350 Calls for $9 or more.

Cabot Options Trader Trade Pro Alert August 2: Roll Position: Sell your OXY September 60/85 Bull Call Spread and Buy the December 65/80 Bull Call Spread.

Cabot Options Trader Trade Alert August 2: Roll Position: Sell your OXY September 60 Calls, and buy the December 65 Calls.

Cabot Options Trader Pro Weekly Update July 22: Long positions: AR, M, ONON, OXY, SBUX, QQQ, XLF

Cabot Options Trader Alert Basic and Pro July 21: The news seemingly can’t get worse in the housing sector as of late. Yet despite the negative headlines, the stocks that make up the Housing ETF (ITB) continue to rise. This is a very interesting situation, as it’s possible the worst of the housing news has been priced in.

Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor

Monthly Issue August 3: The earnings deluge is here. We comment on earnings from our recommended companies including Merck (MRK) and Molson Coors (TAP).

Weekly Update July 27: The earnings deluge is here. We comment on earnings from our recommended companies including The Coca-Cola Company (KO) and Sensata Technologies (ST).

Cabot Stock of the Week

Weekly Issue August 1: What a week for the market! That’s not something we’ve said a whole lot this year, and it’s possible another retreat is forthcoming. But for now, things are looking up, and the S&P 500 is up 12.7% from its mid-June bottom. More important was the ability of investors to shrug off some of the bad news last week: a worse-than-expected GDP decline that could signal a recession; another big interest rate hike (though the 75-basis-point increase was less than the 100-point jump some had feared); and Q2 earnings have been mixed.

Cabot Explorer

Bi-weekly Issue August 4: Explorer stocks had a great week as Centrus (LEU) is up another 10%, Cloudflare (NET) adds 20%, Infineon (IFNNY) reports revenue jumping 33% and Ford (F) reports eye-popping sales results for July. Data and analysts are divided so stay cautiously optimistic and consider today’s new recommendation at the heart of U.S.-China rivalry.

Bi-weekly Update July 28: The S&P 500 is down about 20% so far this year, putting it on pace for the worst first half in five decades. The return of inflation, a weaker Chinese economy and the Ukraine conflict have all hit growth and weighed on stocks.

Cabot Small-Cap Confidential

Alert August 5: Procept BioRobotics (PRCT) beat expetations yesterday, delivering Q2 revenue of $16.7 million (+97%) and giving full-year upped guidance of $66 – $68 million (a $7 million increases and compares to consensus of $61.6 million).

Monthly Issue Aug 4: The market is getting stronger and higher-growth names are leading the charge. This month we dig into an overlooked company with a global payments platform that’s helping solve digital payment challenges in complex industries.

Alert August 4: Ingles Market (IMKTA) Reports and TransMedics (TMDX) Taps the Market

Weekly Update July 28: With this morning’s first read of Q2 GDP coming in at -0.9% and marking the second consecutive quarter of negative growth (Q1 GDP was -1.6%), many are claiming (or soon will claim) the U.S. is in a recession.

Cabot Dividend Investor

Weekly Update August 3: This market is having quite a rally. The S&P 500 just had one of the best months ever in July, up 9.1% for the month, and is currently up more than 12% from the June low. Will the good times last?

Monthly Issue June 8: It’s a raging bear market in technology. But technology has been by far the best performing sector for well over a decade for good reasons.

Cabot Early Opportunities

Alert August 4: Airbnb (ABNB) reported Q2 results that missed on the top line and beat on the bottom line. Revenue grew 56.7% to $2.1 billion while EPS of $0.56 beat by $0.13. Investors focused on a lighter-than-expected gross bookings figure ($17 billion, up 27%, versus expectations of $17.1 billion).

Monthly Issue July 20: In the July Issue of Cabot Early Opportunities I snag two stocks from our Watch List and profile three fresh names that have caught my eye. Officially, we add three of these positions to our portfolio, including a rapid growth software stock, an oil and gas producer with a growing midstream asset base, and a rapidly expanding coffee shop.

Cabot Profit Booster

Weekly Issue July 26: This week we are going to make a play on Qualcomm (QCOM), which is due to report earnings on Wednesday. And while there is risk in executing a trade ahead of earnings, we are going to play it conservatively by selling an in-the-money call.

Alert July 18: On Friday the July calls that we sold against our JD and EQT stock positions expired worthless. Today, both stocks are trading higher, and I want to sell a new set of calls against each. Here are those trades, and approximate prices.

Cabot Micro-Cap Insider

Weekly Update August 3: This was a quiet week, and so I’m going to use my introduction to share an update on Cogstate (COGZF), which reported preliminary fiscal 2022 results.

Monthly Issue July 13: Today, I’m recommending a U.K. natural gas company that is trading at a ridiculously cheap valuation and is run by capable operators who generated a 40x return on their last natural gas company.

Cabot Income Advisor

Weekly Update August 3: What a July! The S&P 500 moved 9.1% higher for the month, making it the best month since the first pandemic recovery month in 2020. It also closed up 12.6% from the low in June.

Monthly Issue June 22: There is overwhelming historical evidence that buying good stocks in bear markets is a highly successful long-term strategy. After all, it’s better to buy stocks cheap. And the market always trends higher over time. The truth is that buying stocks in a bear market is the most successful investment strategy ever devised.

Cabot Turnaround Letter

Monthly Issue August 3: This note includes our review of earnings from Adient (ADNT), Conduent (CNDT), Gannett (GCI), Goodyear Tire & Rubber (GT), Ironwood Pharmaceuticals (IRWD), Kaman Corporation (KAMN), Molson Coors (TAP), Organon & Co. (OGN), Vodafone (VOD), Western Digital (WDC) and Western Union (WU).

This past Wednesday we published the August edition of the Cabot Turnaround Letter. We highlight six interesting companies with CEO changes and also highlight six Dogs of the Dow while steering clear of three other high-yielding Dow stocks. Our feature recommendation is Volkswagen AG (VWAGY).

Weekly Update July 29: Comments on earnings from Dril-Quip (DRQ), General Electric (GE), Holcim (HCMLY), Janus Henderson Group (JHG), Kraft Heinz Company (KHC), Lamb Weston Holdings (LW), M/I Homes (MHO), Newell Brands (NWL), Polaris (PII), Shell plc (SHEL) and Xerox Holdings (XRX). There were no ratings or price target changes this week. The Friday Update includes The Catalyst Report… a valuable research tool unique on Wall Street. As a reminder, we will be publishing the August edition of the Cabot Turnaround Letter next Wednesday.

Cabot Money Club

Monthly Magazine August: It’s the only thing you’ll buy and hope to never use, but insurance is an important part of your financial picture. These tips can help you save money on insurance costs and make money on insurance investments.

Stock of the Month July 14: Interest rates are still rising, as the Federal Reserve boosted short-term rates by 75 basis points last month, to try to stem the growth of inflation. There are some signs that it may be working. The 30-year mortgage rate actually saw a couple of decreases early last week, but nudged a bit higher on Friday, to a 5.94% average national rate. And gas prices have declined nationwide to $4.66 per gallon, from $4.68 this time last week. I know that’s not much, but, hey, we’ll take what we can get!

Cabot ETF Strategist

Weekly Update July 26: A sudden surge in the U.S. dollar over the past year has bought good and relatively bad news for some firms. With the dollar strengthening, American companies with significant imports have benefitted from cheaper foreign exchange trade. Meanwhile, companies with a more global business are suffering because the strong dollar is affecting their performance.

Monthly Issue July 12: Since last month’s issue, we’ve seen continued volatility in the U.S. equity markets. Trading volume was among the slowest this year; according to Dow Jones Market Data Group, the typical daily volume in the New York Stock Exchange is close to 5 billion. However, this year, it has been around 4 billion.

Ask the Experts

Cabot Options Trader

Question: Jacob, I really appreciate your newsletter. I have been buying off the watchlist. It’s been really working well for me. Do you have any advice for locking in profits? I have been getting 100%+ gains but I am looking for a really good way to lock in profits and move to the next trading opportunity.

Jacob: Glad the watchlist is providing so many fruitful opportunities. You are using it perfectly.In terms of position management ... I would simply set mental stops on those positions that are working. For example, if you have a 100% profit, set a stop at 75%. Then, should the stock continue to rally, and your calls continue to rise in value, raise that stop again.
