After nearly four decades of meeting monthly publishing deadlines, it’s time for me to shift gears. I am stepping away from writing IR to spend full time researching global investing strategies, compounding, and dividend-paying stocks on behalf of our management clients at Richard C. Young & Co., Ltd. Eagle Financial Publications will become the new publisher of Intelligence Report as of September 1. You’ll find further details regarding this transition in the enclosed letter. Don’t despair. I am not abandoning my thousands of subscribers, many of whom have been with me since what feels like the Reagan era. As always, you’ll be able to get my early-morning posts on richardcyoung.com and youngresearch.com. Read more

I’ve subscribed to Dick’s newsletters for at least a decade, and have consistently been impressed by how useful and profitable his approach has been. He has kept me out of risky investments and steered me toward better ones than I likely would have found on my own. I’m happily retired with a great future, and Dick Young is a significant part of the reason why.
