What is a turnaround stock?

Wondering where to invest your hard-earned money in today’s economy? Turnaround stock picks should be a part of every well-diversified portfolio, and The Turnaround Letter’s 25.44% annualized return rate over the past five years (as of 11/30/14) demonstrates why.

Lucrative stock profit potential can be found among temporarily out-of-favor companies. The strategy with turnaround investing is relatively simple: Beaten down stocks with real value will prevail regardless of the overall market and/or short-term set backs. Of course, not all distressed companies meet our selective criteria for a potential turnaround opportunity. For a down-and-out stock to offer true contrarian potential, the company must be poised for a rebound--and that is where The Turnaround Letter can help.

You need trustworthy, straight-forward stock market advice. George Putnam has offered precisely that for the past 28+ years, successfully separating the wheat from the chafe to uncover extraordinarily profitable stocks. In fact, The Turnaround Letter's 15-year 13.17% annualized return (as of 11/30/14) is more than 6x  the S&P 500's and make The Turnaround Letter the best producing investment newsletter on the market during that stretch!

Prudent turnaround investing choices in

Bull and Bear Markets.

Not only do individual investors shun turnaround stocks, so do banks, insurance companies, pension funds and Wall Street, in general. Unlike with the heavily-analyzed and traded "blue chips," Main Street investors truly can--and do--realize substantial gains with turnaround stocks. MarketWatch recently explored why value/turnaround stocks grow in both bull and bear markets; and why top advisors, like George Putnam, "do not engage in market timing."

…but what about risk?

The Turnaround Letter knows that your financial security is serious business. While all investing requires some speculation, George Putnam’s approach minimizes that inherent risk. We believe there is much less risk in a “troubled” stock, which has already been hammered down by the market, than in a “hot” stock trading at 30 or 40X earnings.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

A hot growth stock can come crashing down with even the slightest rumor, bad news or perhaps even good news that wasn’t quite as good as Wall Street anticipated. A stock that is already perceived as troubled, however, may hardly budge on that same news. With turnaround stocks investors have already anticipated the worst. In other words, a little more bad news is unlikely to impact that otherwise appealing turnaround stock.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity;

an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

~ Winston S. Churchill

Having said that, turnaround investing is not without pitfalls. Not every distressed investing situation is going to result in a glowing success story, which is why it is imperative to invest wisely. George Putnam’s Turnaround Letter offers the reliable, proven expertise you need, and its 20-year average annual return rate of 12.10% (as of 11/30/14) means you can confidently invest in these turnaround stocks poised for long-term profit.

We know there are plenty of investment options available out there. George Putnam's Turnaround Letter is here to help identify turnaround stock picks for market-beating results.
