Website Suggestions

At The Turnaround Letter we strive to meet the needs of our subscribers and viewers and we value your input and guidance. We have dedicated this special “Website Suggestions” page on the site not necessarily for the standard feedback or questions (other features on the site accommodate those) but here we are looking for thoughts on what we could do to make this website and The Turnaround Letter more productive tools for you. Customer input drove the creation of The Turnaround Letter and this website, and the more we get the better.

Pretend you are a paid consultant to The Turnaround Letter,  and we asked you what would be the one thing we could do that would have the greatest impact on our subscribers. Step out of the box for a bit and get a little crazy and tell us what your wishes for this website would be. You may wish to improve a feature on the site or you may wish this site had a feature similar to one you have seen elsewhere.

The sky is the limit! We cannot guarantee we will institute every request, but we will guarantee that we will read and consider each one and see what we can do to make your wishes come true.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

2015 Bankruptcy Recap: 46% Increase Fueled by Oil & Gas/Mining Industry--Further Uptick Predicted

Looking back at 2015, research reveals a 14% decline in overall business bankruptcies but a 46% uptick in public company Chapter 11 filings—with a striking 51% of those filings coming from the battered Oil & Gas/Mining sectors. Economic indicators point to further increases in corporate bankruptcy, in general, and Energy-related filings, in particular.

Spotlight: Junk Bond Market

stock market advice

MarketWatch's Mark Hulbert recently tapped George's distressed investing expertise to determine the fate of the junk-bond market and what its nearly three-year decline likely means for your portfolio.

 

Hulbert writes, "What’s really going on? For insight, I turned to George Putnam, an expert in distressed-company investing. His Turnaround Letter advisory service has handily beaten the stock market over the past 15 years, according to the Hulbert Financial Digest’s tracking, by an impressive margin of 7.3 percentage points a year on an annualized basis."

 

Commenting on the rapid growth of high-yield exchange traded funds (ETF's), Putnam notes, "They have become the investment vehicle of choice for short-term investors….Those investors tend to be trend followers and, therefore, are just the opposite of being contrarian."
