Twice-Monthly Personal Finance Print Issues
If your subscription includes a print version, it will arrive by mail usually in the second and last weeks of each month. It is also available online, in both PDF and HTML format, around the same time. The next issue's publication date may be found in the lower right-hand corner of the cover of each issue. Please visit the My Account page to ensure your postal address is entered correctly. On that same page, you may also click on View Email Preferences to elect to receive issue notifications by email each time a new issue is posted online. In the Premium Services section of that page, be sure to check the box next to Issue Notifications, Flash Alerts & Trade Alerts and click the Update button at the bottom of the page.
Weekly Mind Over Markets Premium e-Letter
Our weekly market analysis and portfolio updates will be emailed to you each weekend. You'll also receive our weekly e-letters Week in Review and Marketplace Review. You may easily unsubscribe or change your email preferences at any time via the links in the footer of each email. We always respect your wishes. Ensure email delivery by whitelisting our email address.
We will occasionally alert you by email of any changes to our Buy/Sell advice on stocks. Those changes will, of course, be included in the twice-monthly Personal Finance issue as well. If you haven't done so already, ensure email delivery by whitelisting our email address.
This is the question we get asked most by new subscribers, and understandably so. Building a portfolio and making money is the fun part. To answer this question, we have two suggestions for you...
Consider first buying the Growth Spotlight and/or Income Spotlight stocks that we covered in the most recent issue of Personal Finance. Those may be found in your print issue or online under the Articles navigation menu. First buy the top pick in the top weighted sector, then add the second pick in the top sector or perhaps the top pick in the second sector.
Always review the online portfolio pages, updated every two hours, to ensure that the Portfolio stocks still rate as a Buy and trade below our recommended Buy price.
Your twice-monthly issue of Personal Finance is available in PDF and HTML format online during the second and last weeks of each month. Both versions may be found on the home page. You can choose to read the PDF version via the top-left link or the HTML version in the left column, organized by department.
You may also find any back issues under Issue Archives on the top navigation menu.
If your subscription includes a print version, it will arrive by mail usually during the second and last weeks of each month.
You'll find many of these grouped in a few different categories on the Ask the Editor page as well.
Follow the recent issue and Alerts
Due to time constraints, we may not always respond to questions which have just been answered in an issue or an alert. And when we get enough inquires on a new topic, we frequently issue an email alert or cover it in the next issue of Personal Finance.
Call or email us
Visit our Contact Us page or Ask the Editor page and click on "Ask Your Question Now" at top-right of the page. Our service team will take the first shot at answering your question and pass along all others to us. We answer most of them, but due to time constraints, we don’t always respond to questions that have just been or are about to be addressed in an issue or alert.
Well, that covers the basics of your subscription. Now, you're welcome to follow along as we show you where on the website you can find all of the features we've discussed, plus many more. It takes about 11 minutes.
