One of the longest-running investment newsletters on the market today, TheTurnaround Letter is also one of the top ranked: As of June 30, 2015, the annualized return on our stock picks over the past 15 years was 12.3%, vs. the S&P 500's 2.2%--making The Turnaround Letter the  top-performing investment newsletter of the nearly 200 monitored by Dow Jones' Hulbert Financial Digest.

Year in and year out, many of the biggest winners on Wall Street are troubled companies that have turned themselves around. These are the very companies that The Turnaround Letter identifies. A turnaround stock comes from a company that, for various reasons, has suffered a drop in its stock price yet is poised to recover.

When that turnaround happens, investors who get in near the bottom can ride it for hefty gains on the way back up. This simple investment strategy has resulted in The Turnaround Letter’s market-beating results over the past three decades.

Act Now on Tax Losses

Beat Year-End Bounce Rush


With all the stock market volatility this year, many investors probably find themselves holding some stocks in which they have sizable losses. By selling those losers and realizing losses, you can use those losses to offset taxable gains that you may have realized during the year.

Value Stock Profit

Most individual investors consider this investing strategy in December, which means that this tax-loss selling could push the price of some of these stocks even lower--meaning you probably do not want to be selling your losers then. In fact, savvy contrarians should consider buying some of these beaten down stocks to take advantage of that tax-generated downward pressure that goes away on January first.
