Most people interested in the financial markets eventually find themselves staring at another ad-plastered blog or cheap magazine or banal television program, thinking, “I deserve more than this.” They’re looking for a smarter community of investors, premium analysis, focused follow-through.
Jason's market forecasts are clear, and accurate. He's a top-rated forecaster at independent auditor CXO Advisory, a distinction no other commentator at Seeking Alpha can claim. CXO Advisory's ongoing study also rates Jason's forecasts more accurate than famous commentators who are not part of Seeking Alpha, such as Bob Brinker, Jim Cramer, David Dreman, Ken Fisher, Louis Navellier, and many others.
Many subscribers say the letter is the high point of their Sunday mornings. More than a newspaper, TV show, radio broadcast, or magazine, The Kelly Letter provides an erudite summary of all you need to know -- which is far less than popular media would have you believe. If you're tired of mass market information packaged for kiddie culture as insulting to your intelligence as it is useless to your portfolio, join Jason.
Below are comments Jason received from subscribers:
"I have learned a great deal in the short time I have subscribed to your letter, not only about stocks, but about business in general. ... I find your enthusiasm infectious and encouraging, enjoy your writing style, and while I don't always agree with your analysis and opinions on things, I really enjoy reading them and always look forward to reading your weekly letter and updates." -- Martin Triggs
"You have helped me turn my average portfolio to a market crushing portfolio." -- Jeremy Miller
"No one else has ever sent me any of these personal 'best wishes' sort of emails. That says something about you. The world could do with a few more Jason Kellys. This sort of thing takes just a minute and is good for business but I don't get the sense that this is the only (or main) reason you do it." -- Mark Bray
"I wanted to thank you for your sincerity, honesty, and candidness in your latest newsletter. I think you, and Warren Buffett, are the only two stock analysts that ever make it a point to tell the people they represent that they may have missed something." -- Cade Ruhlman
"I do not use any other subscription service. I enjoy your wit and humor, and especially your philosophy that great investing advice shouldn't be expensive." -- Sam Fong
"Your readers get to hear from a 'real' person, and they gain more of an appreciation of the soul behind the words." -- Cheryl Cuttineau
"I now subscribe only to IBD and the Kelly Letter because they are both the best value." -- Daniel Dahlke
"This newsletter remains the most understandable review of the market, and the most prescient outlook, that I've ever read." -- Tim Patnode
"This holistic approach is much more 'real world' to me than books, websites, or newsletters that only address specific trading techniques." -- Sid Norris
"I really like your style of writing. I sometimes re-read a section, not for the stock info, but because I love the way you write." -- Sami Abu-Saad
"Your insightful notes, colorful comments, and unexpected humor make for an exceptionally interesting and valuable letter. Thanks for all your work in sharing it with us at a great price." -- Paul Langrock
"You have caused me a time management problem. I used to spend 1-2 hours a day studying the WSJ, IBD, NYT, Fortune, Forbes, etc. and now I just match what you do and am doing much better than before." -- Ron Davis
Come join Jason as he mixes humor and erudition with investing insights, because there's more to life than the RSI of the S&P 500.
The Kelly Letter costs just $19.97 per month. You can cancel at any time to stop the monthly charges -- but you probably won't.
