Here are some recent examples of the accuracy and timeliness of Fred’s investment newsletter: 

  • 11/23/09 Weekly Report: "A rally in the dollar is approaching. Indeed, a move above 76.50 on the Dollar index could signal this, and we had a nice move up last week. It is looking more and more like a bottom." 

  • 12/23/09 Mid Week Update: "There still seems to be rotation into the small and midcap stock area. This could be next year’s “surprise”."

By March 15,2010 Wall Street Journal Money & Investing section catches up with an article about Smaller Caps leading the charge.

  • 01/19/10 Weekly Report: "Overall – we remain bullish on US equities intermediate-term, while acknowledging that the chances for a short-term correction right now are as high as they have been at any time since this summer."

  • 02/03/10 Mid Week Update: "So far, this drop has been typical of what you see when there are low % bears, as we have remarked upon. We would be adding to positions here, and more on a decline should we see it mid-February."
