This letter is a combination of market timing (trend following using moving-average crossovers and a couple of other indicators) and growth stock picking. I have to credit them with staying in cash for most of the bear market. Unfortunately I didn’t follow their advice to the letter. (Does anyone?) There’s a serious point there, though. If you only subscribe to a newsletter to pick up some ideas, but you’re not going to follow the advice otherwise, then why bother and not just stick with the oceans of free information that’s already out there? But live and learn… I’m cutting back… Read more »

$99 annually. The stock selections pick are mostly not well known companies. But they predicted and advised subscriber to cashout as early as Sept. of last year. overall strategy is more of conservative and equity preservation. Very good in predicting trend

Good, reputable, quiet newsletter with a relative paucity of favored stocks, often featured on other newsletters/research services, and thus a solid source for confirmations. Interesting opinion, written by a well established & respected editorial desk. Recommended, but not essential…

It’s concise with few recommendations. Clear market indicators, very useful. No gimmicks and affordable. This one is a good buy in my opinion.

Cabot Market Letter started out as a kitchen-table family operation back in the 1970s. It is still run by a bunch of very nice people who love stocks. They make good use of technical analysis to add an element of market-timing that is missing from many stock-tout newsletters. Their stocks make good money in an up-market. They don’t go short or use inverse E.T.F.s, however. Very educational newsletter that is fun and interesting to read. Associated advertising for their other newsletters is done in a respectful and low-key manner. Good customer service, too.

Excellent, professional service. Cabot is well-respected and has earned its reputation. I am very happy with the price (great value), customer service, and, most importantly, the picks and explanations. I have already paid for a second year early in my first year; that’s how impressed I am with their service. I will be adding more Cabot services as my account grows. Highly recommended for growth investors and position/momentum traders. Added note: you always get extra recs via a “watchlist” that are worth an individual look but aren’t part of the 12-stock portfolio. Also – I have had 25%+ gains on… Read more »

Subscribed 7 months ago, mainly on review recos. Conventional, run of the mill picks, really disappointing.
Usually climbs on the bandwagon when it has gone most of the way already. You can accomplish the same by following most conventional free advice after some due diligence, and save your subscription money.

I have subscribed to the Cabot Market Letter since 1997. I have them charge my credit card $20 monthly for my subscription. I have always been impressed with Cabot’s ability to pick winning stocks. They have a great record over the years, and they have the best overall record of any of the several different newsletters that I track. Their model portfolio is up 23% in the first 10 months of 2010, and up 80% since I started tracking it in 2004. Cabot does not try for a diversified portfolio. They always go for growth. They never have more than… Read more »

I’ve been a subscriber for over a year now and have been very pleased. Have subscribed to many newsletters and services over the years and this is one of the best, a keeper! I now use ETFs for most of my investments, and successfully too, but I use a smaller account for individual growth stocks. The Cabot Market Letter fills this bill perfectly for me. Yes, as someone else mentioned, they occasionally overstay the mark on positions and give up some profits, but overall they’ve been consistently right on in my book!

They been in the business for a long time, but that has nothing to due with their stock picking ability. They owe their success to their marketing only. As someone that was a subscriber for over 3 years, I can tell they have no timing to buy or sell stocks. They have some winners which they hold for years if they have to, but considering that the veast majority of their picks gives a loss, it’s not possible to make money following their picks. They simply buy the stocks with the highest RS (just like IBD). Nothing else matters, and… Read more »

Their strategy is to buy high and hope to be able to sell higher. That means greater risk and hence some gainers along with more than a fair share of of lossers. Along with their three timing indicators, which actually work reasonably well, they come up with “stories” to justify their specific stock picks. Anyone can make up a story to justify anything, and Michael Cintolo is not shy about doing so, no matter how outlandish the claim about a company’s product line or prospects. Cabot’s sell on the website is pure traditional “look how our picks have done” marketing,… Read more »

Have been a subscriber for over two years. They have a tendency to buy after a stock has had a big run up in price. Is hard to invest in their picks because of this. If the stock pulls back, it can generate a big loss real quick because of the big runup. But overall if you have the nerve to hold onto their picks, from what I have seen, you can do ok.
