No one can get it right every time. But we pride ourselves on our top-notch research.
On such merits, I’m finishing off this year’s “best of” series by highlighting some of our most prescient calls of 2014.
I hope you were able to take advantage of these predictions!
Here’s to many more opportunities in the New Year…
#5 U.S. Topples Historic Oil Monopoly
This past October, the Saudis flooded the market with oil in an effort to kill off the U.S. oil market, just like Chief Resource Analyst Karim Rahemtulla predicted in July 2013. When the official announcement came, Karim predicted a bear market for the commodity in the coming months. Sure enough, the price per barrel has dropped from $80 to $50.

#4 Advanced Polar Vortex Could Lead to Opportunity

Back in March, Chief Income Analyst Alan Gula warned readers to avoid stocks that were heavily exposed to China, including six stocks with appealing yields but huge underlying problems. Alan not only went six-for-six, but he also helped readers avoid some massive dips. Rio Tinto (RIO), for instance, plummeted more than 20% since his warning. And BHP Billiton (BHP), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), and Wynn Resorts (WYNN) dropped more than 30%. Read more »

When I wrote this article back in April, MIT had just released its list of the world’s “50 Smartest Companies.” After analyzing the data, I realized that a revival was in the works for manufacturing stocks. And I recommended one of the top three companies on MIT’s list: Illumina Inc. (ILMN). By early November, shares had catapulted 48%. Read more »
