MarketWatch, a service of Dow Jones that evaluates 200+ investment newsletters, recently ranked The Turnaround Letter #1 for stock profit over the last 15 years--with its annualized return of 13.55% (as of 02/28/14).

We believe there is much less risk in a "troubled" stock that has already been hammered by the market than in a "hot" stock trading at 30-40X earnings.

As of 3/31/14, The Turnaround Letter’s return on stock purchase recommendations over the past year was 36%—vs. the S&P 500’s 17%.

Beaten down stocks with real value will prevail regardless of the overall market. We focus on stock selection not market timing.

"By focusing on out-of-favor companies, The Turnaround Letter has achieved enormous success for its subscribers." ~ Barron’s

The Turnaround Letter's approach is simple: We avoid the "blue chips" and "hot" stocks that most investors are clamoring to buy.
