I subscribed for a year and chose not to renew. Smarmy gloss overs don’t equate with in-the depth analysis that can be found on other sites, sometimes for free, such as Seeking Alpha. Owens pushes the same basket of stocks and funds, many of which have done poorly this past year, and rarely if ever adjusts his “Portfolio.” He ignores many other better choices. I would recommend anyone considering Brett Owen’s recommendations to look further before deciding to follow his advice.

Those wanting to invest in closed end funds would do best to go to the website cefa.com. There is no fee! You get better insight and do your own due diligence. Contrian Outlook in there portfolio from Dec 2017 – Feb 2018, recommended both MIC and CLNS Both losing 40-60% of their value With losses like that, run fast from there website. I have lost thousand and thousands of dollars. I would not be surprised if some comments here come from those that profit from the newsletter. Of course, I do not know that for sure. If your losing 40-60%… Read more »

Thanks for telling us about MIC and CLNS. Time to back up the truck and load up on oversold quality funds, if you ask me.

The worst newsletter ever in my view. I joined Dec 2017. MIC stocked was highly recommended. It was about $65 around that time. It’s only Mar 18, it’s a $38-39 stock He liked CLNS about that time too, I bought in about $12., now it’s about $5.50. He issued an alert in his mar 2 2018 letter to sell after the huge downturn. On that advice, I’m probably going to buy more! I did not sell. If you wish to subscribe and take HUGE losses in a 3 month or so span, go ahead. The $100 subscription has cost me… Read more »

I agree, at first I thought he was great. well educated Cornell, and conservative. However I am down over 100,000 because of MIC and CLNS. In fact almost all of his advice is losing money. hidden yields is also losing money. I am going to keep CLNS and MIC and OHI because I cant afford to sell. the dividend’s have been cut in CLNs and he waited to long to cut the looses.

The only one making money is the subscription service. Bought CLNS when it was around $14, but sold it when it was trekking around $10-11. I told myself that something is wrong with this stock based on the price action and I was right.

I know exactly what your talking about. I’m buried in MIC,CLNS. But have losses as well in the symbols you indicated. Horrible newsletter. My comment hopefully is now posted. Yeah, I’ve lost thousands of dollars and today is Mar 4 2018. I subscribed in Dec 2017. Huge losses in only a few months.

I’m not a subscriber, but I think you should understand that his advice is an income strategy; not a growth strategy. If you put $10,000 in OHI and get your $1,0000 a year, year after year, then it doesn’t matter if your book value goes up or down; you’re getting the income you desire. Any sound advice is going to include holding onto stocks for several years — not a few months. For an income strategy, you don’t judge it by how the value of your stocks are doing. You judge it by whether or not the stocks continue to… Read more »

Brett Owens is a true “diamond in the rough” – may just be the biggest bang for the buck in the newsletter industry at his $39 12-month trial offer. He thinks along the same lines as Dr. Eifrig (Stansberry Income Intelligence), who is one of the brightest minds in the “income generation sector” of portfolio allocation. Brett understands the science of dividend growth investing and his strategy for each of his selections is extremely well thought out and articulated. Anyone wanting to add some bunch to their dividend generating portfolio would be well served by Brett’s Contrarian Income Report!

I enjoy the practical and incise recommendations. Also doesn’t promise pie in the sky returns.

Brett really provides background on his picks. The most recent issues have compiled and ranked the best places to put new money now, as well as buy-up-to prices for each portfolio position and the resultant buy/hold status. The newsletter got me to look at the closed-end fund segment which is a main component of the recommendations, and some REITs. On closed-end funds, much data and a free screener is available at cefconnect.com. A sister letter ran buy Brett’s associate Michael Foster, is touted as providing you with a reliable screener to support your choices along with the newsletter I haven’t… Read more »

I began using Brett’s advice for my Roth IRA in January 2016. My wife and I each contributed $500 per month to our respective IRA’s. I invested hers in 80% stock mutual fund and 20% in fixed income mutual fund (both No load thru Fidelity). I bought Brad’s monthly recommendations or best buys, always at or below his recommended “buy up to” price. My IRA is up 8.97% and my wife’s IRA is up 21.79%. And that doesn’t even subtract the money I paid for 2 years for his subscription. Absolutely not worth the money. I will not be renewing.… Read more »

Not all that surprising as this is not a growth newsletter- the stated goal is 8% income for retirees and ppl living off dividends.

I have no connection with this newsletter, but I would note that the S&P 500 is up about 40% since January 2016. Your decision to put your IRA money in mostly stock mutual funds was fortuitous.

Brett knows his stuff, and has made some great recommendations, and I’ve profitted from them. However, he (or his editors) annoying try to hawk other, extra-cost services with every write-up they do. They either need to cut it out, or bundle those useful services with the basic “contrarianoutlook” service, for a reasonable fee.
