Investment Philosophy

 

What’s The Turnaround Letter’s investment strategy for double-digit stock profit results?

Since the first Turnaround Letter issue hit the presses back in 1986, George Putnam has always followed the same straight-forward, highly-profitable investment philosophy.

As contrarian investors, we do not to follow the crowd. The Turnaround Letter avoids the “blue chips” and “hot” stocks—instead cherry-picking select “troubled” companies poised for a rebound. The strategy is simple: Beaten down stocks with real value will prevail regardless of the overall market.

Obviously, not every troubled company is going to turn into a success story. Many will liquidate and others languish with depressed stock prices for years. The key to stock profit in turnaround investing lies in skillful analysis and decades of proven experience separating those companies that will recover and, ultimately, return to favor from those that will not.

“Old fashioned common sense is always worth the price.”

- Subscriber Richard S.

Like many things in life, making this distinction is often easier said than done, and The Turnaround Letter’s performance returns and impeccable reputation speak for themselves. George Putnam's flagship investment newsletter will show you how to achieve your own long-term stock market success!

What The Turnaround Letter Does Not Offer

If you’re looking for a trendy, get-rich-quick gimmick, The Turnaround Letter is not for you. We will not guide you to risky start ups, new issues, “penny” mining stocks or speculative options or futures. We focus on quality stock selection, not market timing or speculative investing schemes.

“Yes, this letter is a good place to find stocks

lying low in the doghouse which will come out to play

and to scurry to new heights on a sunnier day.”

- Subscriber William D.

With more than 30 years of experience under our belt, The Turnaround Letter has developed a highly profitable, yet remarkably straight-forward formula for stock profit. Each and every newsletter issue offers detailed, easy-to-understand and dependable analysis.

  • Good dividends 

“Any success I have had, I give full credit to George Putman.

I have taken the letter for 20 or 30 years.”

- Subscriber Tom. F.

Some will mount a comeback in 2017, making it an opportune time to try to identify the best candidates."

 

Quoting George Putnam, Kiplinger details five value opportunities for the new year.
