We're on Hulbert's 2018 Honor Roll !

The Buyback Letter was named to The Hulbert 2017-2018 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll. This is the eighth year in a row The Buyback Letter had been honored for this! There were only 7 that made the Honor Roll. To be in this select group, a newsletter must exhibit above-average performance in both up AND down markets.

As Hulbert advises, "The key to long-term success is actually following a strategy through thick and thin."



"David Fried's Buyback Letter is one of the best in the business. He makes money for subscribers year-in and year-out, in up and down markets, with honesty, integrity and consistency." - Jeffrey A. Hirsch, Stock Trader's Almanac

for the future — it will be here before you know it.


"Not only have the newsletter’s portfolios outperformed a buy-and-hold, they have done so with slightly less risk than the overall market .......... That’s a winning combination,.."

Dear friend,

I'm not satisfied with the market's paltry gains.

Instead, I like to beat the market, beat the benchmarks and leave the nay-sayers in the dust while I build my wealth.

That's exactly what I've done since launching my Buyback Premium Portfolio in August 2000. As of Jan. 31, 2018, this portfolio is up 223.07% since its inception in August 2000 vs. a 96.37% gain in the S&P 500  over the same time frame. That’s an outperformance of 126.70%*.

During the same time frame, the Premium Portfolio also outperformed the DJIA by 78.39% and outperformed the NASDAQ by 120.46%.  By whatever benchmark you choose to measure it, this portfolio is a winner.

This is the kind of performance my subscribers are enjoying from a wide range of stocks – from high-tech companies to home builders, from oil companies to electrical suppliers, from medical groups to battery and shaver manufacturers:

My name is David Fried. For years, I have edited and published a newsletter called The Buyback Letter.

Like other top advisors, I maintain a personal watchlist portfolio where I carefully research and monitor the progress of potential buy list stocks for The Buyback Letter. After awhile, I noticed that this research portfolio was performing extremely well.

Intrigued, I did a 10-year backtest of this portfolio's performance. To my amazement, I found that this "watch list" portfolio averaged 38% annual returns.

That's not a misprint. 38% returns per year! At that annual compounded rate, you would double your money every 1.8 years.

Our Secret, Your Profits

Here's the secret: Senior executives, board members and other insiders know their companies' prospects better than anyone. So when they use company money to buy back stock, you know higher prices are just ahead. Votes of confidence from others in-the-know just don't get any stronger.

But I take it one step further. The Buyback Premium Portfolio holds only the five buyback stocks that are performing better than all the rest ... right now. All others are automatically weeded out.

Hot stocks go in; merely warm stocks are ushered out. So when my stocks soar, laggards do not dilute the portfolio's performance.

The Buyback Advantage

Now I'm not alone in saying that buyback stocks are a way to consistent stock market profits. A major 20-year study showed that in each four-year period, investors in buyback stocks with high book-to-market ratios enjoyed 388% higher returns than other stocks.

The difference in the bottom line for investors is staggering. If you had invested $10,000 in a typical S&P 500 portfolio over the last 10 years, your money would have grown to $67,917. Not bad.

But investing the same $10,000 exclusively into buyback stocks would have returned $130,254. Almost $70,000 more in profits, double the return!

Premium Portfolio: The Best of the Best

With my Buyback Premium Portfolio, I go the extra mile to maximize your profits with the best buybacks for today. For example:

  • I painstakingly examine hundreds of corporate buyback announcements, checking to make sure that they actually buy back their stocks. A surprisingly large number don't.
  • I make sure that the stock buyback is large enough to have a real impact on the value of the stock.
  • Then I put the company under a financial microscope, thoroughly investigating its annual reports, SEC filings and other key documents. I rigorously examine its financial strength, cash flow, prospects for growth, contracts, and other critical indicators to make sure that the company is rock-solid and its stock is reasonably priced.

So the stocks in my Premium Portfolio all boast robust earnings, reasonable valuations, stellar management and excellent growth potential.

Only a handful of stocks pass my rigorous standards. And only the five "best of the best" are recommended in The Buyback Premium Portfolio.

I’ll also share with you my “hot list” – the stocks I’m watching carefully, and from which I make my picks each month.
