My wife subscribed to Harry’s newsletter. He predicted that in the fall of 2011 that the S&P would reach just above 1200 in October or November and then plunge below 700. Base on this perdition my wife took all her money out of the stock market and put it in cash. Needless to say, she lost over a 100K by missing the big stock market rally. Harry Dent has cost subscribers a lot of money with his wrong predictions.

Have been a recurring subscriber for several years and am a satisfied subscriber…Harry Dent even recently issued an apology for being off on his stock market prediction which actually went against his prediction…am a big believer in demographics moving the markets historically and Harry Dent performs meticulous and well documented research backing his pronouncements…his Boom and Bust portfolio picks and updates have done well for me and my portfolio

I have subscribed to Boom and Bust for justvyhispast year and don’ t plan to renew. I find that in general, these newsletters have some utility in getting different points of view and then making your own analyses by cross referencing and checking with comments on such sites as Alpha , Guru Focus, Valuentum and Cabot Benjamin Graham Value. The information overload is very high and I am now weeding out most of the newsletters.

I’ve been a subscriber to Boom and Busy for several years. Overall, I’m impressed with the quality of analysis and writing. Its *specific* investment advice, presented mainly by Charles Sizemore, is mostly sound and has worked out pretty well. Sizemore has a good track record of his own, independently of Dent Research. Harry Dent’s reputation and meta-cosmic musings (or ravings, if you don’t like him) are another matter. He has a good record historically. He correctly predicted the boom of the 1990s, the tech crash of 2000-2002, the housing bubble, and the 2008 crisis. He more or less predicted​ the… Read more »

I subscribe to Harry Dent’s newsletters because he is such a gloom and doomer. When everyone says UP!, he says DOWN! So, it is good to learn from both camps. Each of them will be right at some point in time.

This guy Harry Dent has been wrong more times than a professor at a for profit college grading papers. Yes, a lot can be explained by demographics, and he certainly stirs the honey pot but the stock picks are fairly useless. Good contrarian indicator. He recently turned bullish on stocks just as valuations are reaching nose bleed levels, consumer spending is getting scanty and the market has way over valued a “Trump Premium” on pro business initiatives like cutting taxes and stimulating the economy with guns and butter via a war with ISIS and Major Infrastructure. The sausage making sycophants… Read more »

I find his use of demographics both compelling and interesting, it is certainly a useful corrective when reading all the talk of a never-ending bull run. I have been a subscriber for over a year so i cannot voucher for his timing but his advice is worth keeping in mind.

I made a lot of money in the 90’s after gaining huge risk tolerance from reading his “great boom ahead”. Have been a subscriber on and off for the last 15 years. I like his demographics but his timing really is bad. Been gloom and doom since 2001. But I keep reading it because I believe his demographics are important. Keeps me cautious when all other are saying “buy”. Of course I have probably been over cautious since 2001 because of reading him. A big negative is that he seems to enjoy more and more raving.
