Over the decades, I have written that successful investing is largely a mindset thing. All that is really required is a junior high education combined with great discipline, a willingness to learn, a basic ability to comprehend, an abundance of patience, and a sworn lifetime devotion to the miracle of compound interest. These are all qualities needed to invest in my Maximizers portfolio. By necessity, Maximizers candidates are patient individuals who have accumulated the wealth required to allow the good fortune of adopting the sort of consistent, low-volatility, modest-return portfolios that a 'prudent man' would require.
In this issue, you will learn how Richard C. Young's Maximizers model can act as a foundation for your retirement years, whether you are in retirement right now or will be in the not-too-distant future. I will also show you other opportunities that will allow your portfolio to stand tall while the U.S. economy stumbles along in the winter stage of a long and fast-tiring upswing. First is a fund that will allow you to begin generating a stream of dividends in your portfolio and harness the power of compound interest.

Each month, I provide you with an Economic Analysis supplement to the issue. This supplement provides you with a bird's eye view of the indicators that I monitor on a regular basis. The incisive, story-telling charts included in this supplement are updated every month and range from "The Leaders" to "World Currency Reserves/World Gold Reserves." There will always be great new material as well as timely reference dates, and my comments spell out the meaning of each chart for you. Download in pdf format.
May 27, 2016 Happy Memorial Day Weekend. Time for remembrance. Time for summer. Time to get to work. When I was a kid I had three different jobs: a paper route, cutting lawns, and scooping ice-cream. One person I met at all three was, “the customer.” At the first job, the paper-route, I didn’t see the customer every […] More »

I was a subscriber a few years ago and left. I thought I could find better advice and better returns. I was wrong. What I found was the same old advice that was chasing the latest hot trend. When I looked at my portfolio, the best performers were old recommendations that came from Intelligence Report. I have seen the light. I am back, and I am sorry I left.
