JACK ADAMO’S INSIDERS PLUS
Continued from front page
Insiders PLUS is a weekly Internet-based newsletter with a strong emphasis on
protecting investor capital and providing steady income. We do this by
investing in stocks with sustainable dividend growth, as well as precious
metals and other commodity-related stocks that provide protection against
currency debasement and long-term inflation. Most of our stocks pay
We find our investments primarily by searching in three areas:
- Insider transactions
- "Smart Money" purchases
- Special situations
These three areas are briefly discussed below.
are transactions in which high-ranking executives
or board members of a company buy or sell significant amounts of their company’s
stock. This sometimes leads to an early tip-off as to the future direction of
the stock’s price. However, these transactions require expert interpretation.
Over the last few years, companies have learned to stage Insider buying in
order to make it appear that company executives are optimistic about their
company’s outlook. This practice is especially prevalent in distressed
companies. To our knowledge, Insiders Plus is the only publication
following Insider transactions that has recognized and attempted to publicly
unmask phony Insider buying. Insider selling is also distorted nowadays due to
excessive stock option grants to top company executives. This makes it
difficult to distinguish between selling due to company distress, and selling
just to take advantage of over-generous compensation packages.

The above facts notwithstanding, there are still
leads to be found by studying Insiders – if you
know where and how to look. Note, however, that Insiders
Plus never recommends a stock based solely
Insider buying (or any other single criterion). All
potential recommendations are subject to rigorous
financial analysis, then further screened for
timeliness, using technical analysis.

five-and-a-half years; and Cendant (acquired), which

for our purposes, generally means one of three
- A stock that is significantly mis-priced
because of short-term problems that we believe
will change within a reasonable timeframe.
- A stock whose tangible asset value
significantly exceeds its stock price, and for
which we see a catalyst to realizing that value.
- A stock that we believe will grow earnings at
a pace faster than the market anticipates, and
looks, technically, like it is ready to
Avon Products Inc. (NYSE: AVP), which
netted us 69.3% in less than three years; JDS
Uniphase, which made 49% for us in less than 3
