Top Strategist: Value Doesn’t Matter

While many investors don’t consider a stock without looking at its price/earnings ratio or some other valuation metric, Michael Cintolo of the top-performing Cabot Market Letter says he doesn’t look at valuation.  “The stock market is a contrary creature; when dealing with growth stocks, you generally get what you pay for,” Cintolo writes in a […]

Top Newsletter Stays Disciplined Amid Fears
