This service has only been available for about 6 months, but I think the service and the approach to investing is suberb. I value Mark Ford and Tom Dyson’s investment wisdom.

The Palm Beach Letter is unlike any financial newsletter I’ve ever read…and I’ve invested in quite a few over the past 20+ years. The advice from Mark Ford and Tom Dyson feels like something you would overhear in a country club locker room, not the same old rehashed advice you get from other letters. It’s like I am being let in on the REAL money-making secrets of the wealth and powerful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The original newsletter that got me into this scene was Tom Dyson’s “12% Letter” and now he has moved on to PBL which is a little more broad-based (there is not a stock pick every month.) I like these semi-contrarian financial newsletters much more than the steady stream of personal finance cliches and stock picks from the mainstream press. It is the closest I’ve seen to a dearly departed newsletter called the “Wealth Legacy Advisor” written by Joseph Brennan for Taipan Publishing. And it is also more entertaining than most writing from the Motley Fool, who has become quite stodgy… Read more »

As a fairly new (2 years) investor I have taken classes and subscribed to various newsletters to gain insight and knowledge about the process. While learning I have lost $$$ which I chalked up to “my schooling” in the stock market. However, when I discovered The Palm Beach Letter I realized that the advice given by Mark Ford and Tom Dyson is pure, simple, well-researched and worth following. I am so sure of this that I purchased a subscription for my 28 yr old nephew/Godchild so he can build a healthy portfolio and have financial peace of mind. Thank you… Read more »

This is the only newsletter I need. I will be cancelling other newsletters I subscribed to. Mark and Tom are the best. I always look forward to reading their well written and researched issues, reports, and updates. Thank you Mark and Tom and keep up the good work.

I currently have over 30 current subscriptions to financial newsletters and the Palm Beach Letter sets the bar high, that many others cannot meet.
An excellent value priced “cheap” by industry standards. Do not let the price deceive you.
I am very pleased with their product and service.

I have never invested in the stock market and liked the PBL’s approach to safe market investing. Unfortunately, with my luck the first stock I picked, HTH, on their super safe rating list was a loser for me at a 25% loss. Other than that they had only one other loser of 25% if you used the stop-loss which was Niska Gas. Their overall portfolio including gold with that 50% loss is up about 80% which is a very good return for overall safe picks. Mark Ford also has a pen name, Michael Masterson. It took me two emails for… Read more »

Oh. And for you newsletter bashers scam speculators out there. I saw you bashing Chris Weber’s publication by inquiring as to why so many people wrote in during a certain timeframe. The reason why you will see so many reviews on the same day is because Mark’s recent weekly report gave a link to stockgumshoe so that they may place a review.

Good advice for a resonable price. I’ve made good money over the last several years from the advice and recommendations provided by Tom Dyson. I was really disappointed when Tom left Stansberry and Associates so when I heard that he landed at the Palm Beach Letter, I subsribed immediately. Tom and Mark make a good team. They offer conservative, common sense advice. It doesn’t quite square with Tom’s penchant for riding trains but I like the investing advice.

Living in Sweden and as a subscriber to four different economical US information letters I definitely find The Palm Beach Letter to give me the most useable information. Your letter gives value for the cost and I like your more conservative way of advices which will give a better result in the long run.

I’m a subscriber myself. I got transferred to PBL from the Liberty League Street advisory by Michael Masterson. I’m also a subscriber of the Weber Publishing and S&A Investment Advisory. Only 3 of them. And imho, PBL is the worst of them, but still good. Let me explain. 1st of all. As far as I know, PBL is new, so i doubt my fellow reviewers here who said they have been a subscriber for years. Most of the review are also about very general comments. I believe that most of the review here is done by the staff of PBL.… Read more »

Originally discovered Palm Beach Letter from another website newsletter I follow called “Live and Invest Overseas” (http://www.liveandinvestoverseas.com). Wife, kids, and myself live in the Philippines and USA as dual-residents, so we like investment and society outlooks for the future that are unconventional in perspective. The USA is not the best place in the world to live, and certainly not the center of the financial universe. The hard economic times USA has seen in the past few years may be just the start, not the end. Regardless of peoples nationalistic opinions, the general investment approaches at PBL seem to be conservative,… Read more »

I subscribed to the Palm Beach Letter and found that most of the advice is quite the same as you would find in another similar publications. With one difference: in this newsletter the emphasis is on increasing your earnings and savings before you increase your investments. The idea is that the investment strategies are more of a long term strategy, almost like a retirement plan, and in the mean time you must work on improving your wealth through additional (and possibly residual) income. Pretty straightforward but many people are still looking for the shortcuts to becoming a millionaire overnight. Me… Read more »

I am a subscriber to PBL, it started out at $49 and then renewed for $79 without any sort of notice. Now they have this special deal that if you renew now for I think about $50 more which would be $129 a year they will reset for 1 full year. They tell you how excited they are well wouldn’t you be to in their shoes with increase from $49 to $129 a year. Then they bug you everyday with the count down with last chance. I told them to just cancel when it runhs out. One thing they do… Read more »

I dropped Palm Beach Letter a couple weeks ago after subscribing for roughly 3 months. They offer a lot of articles about accumulating wealth, being smart with your money, etc., which I can see being beneficial for those readers with a demonstrated history of poor money management. I need solid stock picks. I even subscribed to their Palm Beach Income service for a while which focuses on selling put and call options. I found I did better selling options using recommendations from Daily Wealth Trader. The stock picks were ho hum. They provide a bond ladder and what they call… Read more »

Tom Dyson states in his pitch for the Palm Beach letter tha Kraft is owned by Philip Morris. It was sold years ago, so with an error like that, I can’t trust my money to his advice.

This is the best overall letter that I have ever subscribed to. They recommend good stocks that are not flashy but also not likely to tank. I keep track of their portfolio and wish I had bought them all and sat on them. I would be well ahead. Especially if you have some time until retirement, I would say buy their recos and sleep nights. When retirement comes you should be in good shape.

What’s the scoop on this guy that is pitching these “daily payouts” via Daily Dividends. Asking $499 for a list of companies that pay these out. Each transaction supposedly takes 8 minutes.

I signed up for a free trial from this, which not only was completely useless information – just a bunch of introductory information wrapped up in high powered marketing….but it also wasn’t free! I immediately got billed! And then they refused to give me a refund when I asked for one! Protect your credit card information from these con artists!

I’ve subscribed to Palm Beach Letter and Palm Beach Confidential. The latter is by far the best investment newsletter I’ve subscribed to, thanks to Teak Tihari’s recommendations about cryptocurrencies. One of his recommendations has gone up over 17 times (1650%) in under three months, and is still rising, while others have gone up by 187%, 90%, 86%, etc. in the same time period, so I’m a very satisfied customer. PB Confidential was a bit expensive ($1500 minus a gift of Bitcoin worth $295 a few weeks ago) but I recouped the money in under a month. Palm Beach Letter is… Read more »

I second that. So far so good. The gift of 0.17 bitcoin at the time is worth more than the subscription cost I paid for it. Just a matter of time before we get bombarded with altcoin teasers about the next bitcoin. Even if the whole virtual currency market would go to zero tomorrow it was worth the ride, but of course I am a believer and making some income is great but seeing banks become obsolete would be better.

They do open up your mind to broader asset classes but, like so many newsletter, they are taking well known concepts and simply rebranding them as their own. Still have mixed feelings about signing on as a permanent subscriber.

As a complete novice to cryptocurrency, everything I read was new. The writing and resources are rather confusing and disorganized, but by spending enough time to look at all they have, one comes away with enough knowledge to take part. The price seems exorbitant at first, but I got into bitcoin at $4,500 and it now is about $10000, so my investment has zeroed out already. At two months, the other coins have not yet taken off, but I suspect will be rewarded handsomely. I wish I had bought a lifetime membership, but will probably do so when the 2… Read more »

I ordered their booklet for $4.95 and about a month latter received a charge on my credit card for $94.05! This is a rip=-oof – I tried to contact by phone and I could not get through so I sent them an email which they said they could not send!. Their operation sounds like a fraud where they take your money but prevent you from being able to contact them and get their advertised refund.

Well, I subscribed as an Infinity member because I really liked Mark Ford and Tom Dyson, but now it looks like they sold out to Nick and Teeka!! A lot of changes and I am not impressed any more.

The Palm Beach Letter was a great equity oriented advisory when actively edited by co-founders Mark Ford and Tom Dyson. It is no longer the case since they put Teeka Tiwari in charge. Teeka’s previous stock-based performance was mediocre. His current focus seems to be cryptocurrencies. Since I became a lifetime member for stock trading, I am no longer interested in Palm Beach. If you want stock-based advice, forget Palm Beach.

He still offers a ton of stock and equity based selections. I can think of at least 15 in the last year. One month even offered 7 equity investments at once.

Also, if you’d have purchased his crypto picks on the day they were recommended you’d have made 1,000s of %, even after the recent decline in the crypto markets during the 1st 6 months of 2018. So it’s kind of hard to complain about Teeka’s selections. I feel he’s done a great job.

I have been a Palm Beach Letter subscriber for over two years and can say that I have been very impressed. I’ve noticed that some have said they liked Mark Ford and Tom Dyson better than Teeka Tiwari, however, I have very much enjoyed Teeka’s investment selections and advice. In 2017 his picks were up 1000s of % when you include the cryptocurrency selections. Outside of crypto his selections still beat the market averages and most are throwing off great income with fat yields. I will continue to subscribe to the PBL for as long as it is published.

At first this newsletter felt like something different. And I took a long term offer. Now it has in my opinion degenerated and I hardly any more look at it.

I bought the lifetime subscription over 7 years ago. At first I thought the letter was worth the money. not so much last few years. Received a notice last week that they had lost record of my Lifetime membership and they tried to charge me for a new annual subscription fee. Sounds like they are losing money and trying to scam old subscribers? Any one else experience this? Disgraceful!

Teeka has take over the palm beach letter for few years now and he is doing OK with it. It’s a very good entry level newsletter.
