In his more than 30 years of recommending stocks, Charles has compiled an amazing record of success. He is the editor of Hidden Values Alert and the Inevitable Wealth Portfolio newsletters. Hidden Values Alert has been named one of Marketwatch.com’s 10 Best Advisors from October 2007 to January 2015…a period that included the Financial Crisis of 2008 and the subsequent bull market that began March 2009. While many gurus boast of astronomical rates of returns over very short time spans, their claims don’t stand up to scrutiny. Instead, their “returns,” when reviewed by an independent third party, melt away faster than ice cream on a hot summer day. The returns that Charles has racked up are certified by Hulbert Financial Digest – the fiercely independent rating service that tracks the performance of financial newsletters. Charles is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, Getting Started in Value Investing (Wiley).
