For Kirk Lindstrom's
Investment Letter Service
- March 17: "I have a long
term plan. This plan takes into account my goals, my risk tolerance,
and time horizon. Asset allocation is a major part of my plan. I used to
follow technical indicators but have decided they are not all that
important. I find if I rebalance my allocation when it gets out of my
targets by more than 2% the technicals don't so much as guide what I
should be buying or selling they confirm it is a good time to rebalance
my allocation. The process once set up only takes a hour or so a month.
This leaves me time to do other things. I've been taking Kirk's
newsletter since Autumn 1998. Following what I have learned allowed me
to retire a few years earlier than i ever dreamed and with a higher
standard of living."
- Feb 9: "Dear Kirk,
thanks for keeping me on the list. By now I had intended to become
a subscriber again, but different scenarios, same result, I am cashless
for market activities. When I unsubscribed in 2013 it was because
I went all in on property at the time and had nothing left to invest in
the market. A very solid move for me. Since, I have started
a business with some colleagues that is not setting the world on fire
yet and all of my assets are in the business or tied to it. I had
hoped that by now for increased cash flow which could be channeled into
the market. That time had not yet come, but when it does, I will
certainly re-subscribe. In the meantime, I really appreciate you
keeping me on your distribution list. Your approach and knowledge
of the market and the industries that you invest in are second to
none. I am sure that these days you have some very satisfied
customers!" Brian Hickman
17: "Hi Kirk,I would like to give a subscription to your newsletter to a
friend of mine - BG. BG's a good friend of mine. He's
younger, in his early 30's, and is just starting off investing. I
think he could learn a lot from your writings. I'll send in a
check..." Mike N.
- Jan 2: First Place in "Timer Digest 2017 Market Timer of the Year Award"
- Jan 1: "Thanks for your great newsletter and information. Terrific material." Russ T.
- Dec; 15: "I want to thank you for your guidance over the years and most recently the FNSR
recommendation to buy & sell. It was fun to buy it recently
on the dip and almost more important is your alert to sell when it
popped. It is typically easier to “let it ride” and assume it is
on its way to higher prices. I feel so much better that I sold a
small chunk, reduced my exposure and can ignore the ~5% decline from
~$24. Thanks again." Tom

Buy and Hold? We've had some major disappointments in
some major, previously stable issues. Remember it's not
a Profit until you sell. From Al Woodward,
someone who has subscribed since the start (and renewed on 5/15/17.)
Buy and Hold has become an illness like QE 1, 2 and 3.
In this atmosphere it's important to keep a positive
cash flow working to beat the Growing appetite of DC and
in my case Lansing.
I've been following Kirk's advice for 4 Years now and
it's quite enjoyable once you learn to take some profits
along the way. There is no trend in markets that is a
straight line up or down and while Market Timing is
virtually impossible taking profits and reinvesting
those profits on dips has been very productive for me.
In flat markets there is also a time for Dollar Cost
Averaging. I'm retired and adjust my investing to a much
more conservative strategy than recommended by Kirk's
Newsletter while incorporating the parts that fit. The
Monthly News and Charts on the recommended Equities is
extremely helpful. I've done quite well in a shaky
economic atmosphere. I like that Kirk doesn't just
report the rosy good trades in his Newsletter. Every
position and resolution is listed good or bad and the
good far outweigh everything else. His Strategies can be
adjusted to any level of Risk Tolerance you might have.
The TIPS recommendation has been an especially nice
|Explore Portfolio TIPS as of
subscribed to Kirk for many years and have been
satisfied. I call Kirk a swing trader. In the
simplistic, he buys some of a stock when it is below the
buy target point, sells some when it reaches the
targeted sell point. Then he waits for that stock to
cycle itself again at some future date. The methodology
is mechanical and the targets are published. The actions
are not done on a whim.
about Kirk's Investment Newsletter
At one time I followed Bob (Brinker), but that was
before I saw him for what he truly is."
"Al in San Jose" 9/18/11
Thompson, one of my first subscribers who will vouch
for me via email if you wish:
"If my better than average returns continue I’ll be
able to retire at a higher standard of living and
sooner than I originally thought. Kirk’s newsletter
for me has been a true life changing event."
Gratson, a long-time subscriber who vouches for me on
"Kirk's understanding of investing, and in particular
the technology of which he recommends, is excellent.
He understands how the small investor needs to be wary
of headline information, and he does his homework to
value companies and decide when to buy or sell. I have
also learned a lot about fixed income (bonds etc)
investing from Kirk's newsletter, and that
understanding is particularly important as I age. I
think you would find Kirk's newsletter a great
complement to your investment process and I highly
recommend subscribing to his newsletter.”
