About New Generation Research, Inc.

George Putnam Informal

New Generation Research, Inc., is a leading provider of bankruptcy and distressed securities publications, products and services.  Founded in 1986 by George Putnam, III, New Generation Research, Inc. has established itself as the preeminent source for in-depth information on corporate bankruptcies and distressed companies.

The Turnaround Letter was New Generation Research’s pioneer product with the first issue being mailed to subscribers in July of 1986.  The goal of The Turnaround Letter then and today is to provide insight into potential turnaround situations and to recommend stock purchases that we feel have potential for large and/or imminent increases.  The Turnaround Letter’s analytical techniques do not neatly fit into a defined category such “technical” or “fundamental.”  Rather we look at all the available information, price and volume history, financials, management, legal background, economic climate and a number of other items in search of clues that a turnaround is imminent.  The Turnaround Letter's track record speaks for itself, over the last 20 years our recommendations have outpaced the recommendations of every other investment newsletter on the market except for one.

The growth in popularity of The Turnaround Letter over the next 29 years coincided with the growth of New Generation Research as a business.  Numerous other products and services were launched, all related to corporate bankruptcy and distressed and turnaround situations, including: Bankruptcy Week, BankruptcyData.com, The Bankruptcy Yearbook & Almanac, the Distressed Company Alert, custom bankruptcy research and consulting.  Additionally, New Generation Research houses and maintains the industry’s most extensive corporate bankruptcy research database and provides corporate bankruptcy data to numerous data aggregators such as LexisNexis and Westlaw.

Retail Turnaround Trio

MoneyShow.com interviewed George to learn more about his favorite value stock picks for today's market. In "Retail Turnaround Trio," Steve Halpern highlights three of The Turnaround Letter's recently-profiled retailers: JWN, TIF and SPLS.

 

Putnam notes, "Well the retailing sector is undergoing very fundamental change as people move away from the bricks and mortar mall doors to buying more and more online but that's not going to wipe out all of the old-fashioned retailers. Starting the middle of 2015, investors just moved away from retailers en masse and a number of them are trading at about half the level they were a year ago. We thought some of the higher quality names that definitely will be survivors looked interesting."
