Richard Band recently retired and the newsletter is now authored by Neil George. Thus far, I enjoy his writing and analysis after subscribing for many years under Band. The newsletter is still publshed in the same format but I think it is a bit more detailed than in the past. So far, so good!

It is disconcerting to hear disgruntled subscribers. My experience has been much different. The Customer Service department has always been most courteous and helpful. Richard Band is an outstanding person who pays attention to detail and very wary of the herd instinct of the Street. I refer to him as the “Bottom Fisher” . He is a value stock picker. With proper diversification, one will make outstanding decisions. No one walks on water, not even Richard, but he has taught me patience. I have just returned from a meeting with him and other investors in Washington, D.C. He, as usual,… Read more »

I have subscribed to Profitable Investing for 5 years. No advice to save me from the drop in 2008. Overall the Profitable Investing newsletter is too complicated for the average person. there are 4 portfolio options, then a constant stream of try this, and try that. Some of these recommendations have been a complete bust. AND BEWARE the automatic renewal. They have this in the fine print and it will get you! I cannot get any satisfaction from customer service either. I AM CANCELLING MY SUBSCRIPTION! And now I have to fight with them for my money back.

Investing is a major challenge as the investor have to risk when he decide to start or run a business. communication between the investors example sharing the information and experience will be vital.take an example we people from the developing countries where preparation is another challenge because saving of ten years can lead to zero when the investor touch the field. I believe that this system will help show the way forward.

I’ve been a Profitable Investing subscriber for over eight years, and I have been generally satisfied with Richard Band’s conservative newsletter advice. However, when my present subscription expires, I will not renew it. I do agree with Chick’s August 29, 2009, review. I also found this site while looking for RICHARD BAND’S HASSLE-FREE ETF PORTFOLIO returns — because his newsletter has never posted cumulative YTD returns for any of his portfolios. It IS outrageous that performance figures are not subscription-inclusive. Per a response to my email inquiry, service@rband.com on 10/18/10 wrote, “Hulbert in his Financial Digest reports the returns of… Read more »

Interesting to read and informative. There is usually some bullish and some bearish prediction so that a few issues later he can point back and say “I told you so.”

I have been subscribing to Profitable Investing (P.I.) for over ten years, and I’d like to know where my profits are. I found this web site looking for P.I. returns for 2008 because Richard Band did not publish the 2008 performance in his newsletter. Richard Band did, however, say it was ‘painful’. I could buy these figures from Hulbert, but isn’t it outrageous that the performance figures are not inclusive in the subscription? I know you won’t believe this, but I lost money in the stock market in 2008. Before then, I was just about breaking even with P.I. It… Read more »

Steady, reasoned, consistent, all the adjectives you would look for in a financial advisor. I have subscribed for a couple of decades, and if I hadn’t gone off with new suitors on occaision such as Navellier, etc., I would have more of my assets intact. Richard has had his toughest year, but has not abandoned the slow and steady value-oriented approach to managing your portfolio.

I always called him Richard “Bland”, because of the conservative nature of his recommendations. He deserves credit for two things: (1) He has always emphasized dividend paying stocks to be purchased when in value mode; (2) his copy is always a “good read” and of educational value. It has been a few years since I stopped my subscription, but more recently, judging from the promotional email teasers I receive, he seems to be joining the more boisterous doom and gloom group exemplified by Martin Weiss and gang. “The world will fall apart but I will save you” type of promotion.… Read more »

I’ve subscribed to Richard Band and Navellier, two opposites: conservative and value-oriented versus hard charging and growthy. Each has pluses, but each tends to hang on a bit too long, especially in this market environment. Please, RB, you rode C to the bottom, I got out two years ago! LN’s done that occasionally, but he’s most known for his bombastic pronouncements and top tier record. Prior to October 2007, I did well with both (didn’t we all?) but that’s whisked away. Actually, I can’t complain too much: on a bad day I’m down 15% now and on a good one,… Read more »

Thanks for the opportunity to extol the virtues of a newsletter that I’m stunned is not yet listed in the rankings. I have subscribed to Richard E. Band’s ‘Profitable Investing’ since around 1986. Current rate for a single year of 12 issues plus 24/7 website access, weekly (at least) Richard’s Journal updates, and as-needed Flash Alerts posted and/or by email, is $249.00. The price has risen very slowly from $179.00 as I recall to today’s fee. Multi-year rates are less. Below is a link to ‘About Richard’ at his site. Below the link is an excerpt copied therefrom. My testimony… Read more »
