Timothy Lutts is Chairman and Chief Investment Strategist of Cabot Wealth Network, leading a dedicated team of professionals who serve individual investors with high-quality investment advice based on time-tested Cabot systems.
Under his leadership, Cabot advisories have been honored numerous times by Hulbert Financial Digest, Dow Jones MarketWatch and Timer Digest as the top investment newsletters in the industry.
After working in this business for more than 33 years, Timothy says, “There are 8 things I know.
- The business of investing can provide great rewards to those who work at it and are willing to learn. Those who refuse to learn will lose money.
- To succeed as an investor in growth stocks, it’s best to buy when upside potential dwarfs downside potential, to cut losses short, and to let winners run.
- To succeed as an investor in value stocks, it’s best to buy low and hold patiently, until the stock is fully valued.
- Your greatest enemies are your own emotions and the daily news (generally bad) which distracts you from a long-term focus. Try to ignore them both.
- On the other hand, use your imagination to consider how great companies might evolve, remembering the power of the unforeseeable and the incalculable. When it began renting DVDs by mail, did anyone imagine Netflix could become a leading producer of content? When it began selling books, did anyone imagine Amazon would eventually sell almost everything?
- For over two centuries, the long trend of the markets has been up, reflecting the growth of asset values, and I recommend that you invest in synch with that trend. Your greatest ally is time.
- However, there will always be bull markets and bear markets, and you can use these to your advantage, particularly if you pay close attention to both chart patterns and investor sentiment.
- Lastly, have faith in the ability of intelligent, innovative men and women to adapt, as they always have, and to solve the problems of the future in ways that are unimaginable to people of today. Invest in these people when you can.
Timothy has appeared on numerous podiums as an investing expert, including Bloomberg TV and the World Money Show, led Investor’s Business Daily discussion groups and been interviewed by Dow Jones MarketWatch,TopStockAnalysts.com, VoiceAmerica.com, AOL Finance and numerous other business news organizations.

QuantumScape stock reminds me a lot of Ballard Power, a company we wrote a lot about nearly three decades ago. But here's where they differ.
The bull market is still intact, but the signs of fraying that often emerge during long topping actions continue. Still, by focusing on the right stocks, we can do well.
Waiting for a Buying Opportunity
Let’s start with the good news this week.
Fourth quarter results are in for all but one of our companies (Jushi) and they were terrific, showing average revenue growth from the year before of 167%—a number that would be even without...
The market divergence that has been evolving since early February continues, with the Nasdaq in particular looking weak while the more conservative indexes like the S&P 500 remain near their highs.
While leading growth stocks have been hit hard (and some have rebounded), the major indexes remain in uptrends and cyclical stocks and “reopening” stocks have attracted new buyers.
The good news is that one of our stocks, Trulieve (TCNNF), closed at a record high yesterday. The bad news is that none of our other stocks did. The sector as a whole remains in the moderate correction that began five weeks ago, and continue...
The Dow hit a new high today, but marijuana stocks didn’t; their correction, which was richly deserved, is now one month old. And the fact is this correction is likely to run further, mainly because the broad market still needs a correction.
It's been a month since GameStop stock, Robinhood and Reddit captured America's attention. Here are some good things that came out of it.
I’m tempted—I really am—to take some of our 46% cash position and move it back into marijuana stocks. Since the sector peaked three weeks ago, most of the stocks have had a decent pullback and now the best are moving up again, heading those...
If you’ve got money to invest and want Tesla-like profits, you should invest in the next Tesla. How do you identify that stock? Here’s my list.
While some segments of the broad market have experienced a sharp correction over the past month (growth stocks in particular), the broad market has not fallen apart; in fact, many indexes hit new highs just last week. And, of course, today’s big jump rather...
“Legal Weed Stocks Dip Despite New Jersey Governor Signing Recreational Cannabis Bill Into Law”
That was the headline on one of my news sources yesterday morning, implying that the action of the stocks in light of that legalization event was somehow illogical. But as know...
With this week’s recommendation, I’m swinging back to the more conservative side with a solid technology company poised for big gains from the 5G communications rollout.
