Richard E. Bands profitable investing newsletter is certainly one of the very best I have ever read. He publishes a monthly newsletter and updates and you can access them online as well. A fairly frugal gentlemen from New Hampshire I have found this man to be pretty thoughtful when it comes to investment advice.
He tries very hard to give good helpful advice and I find him to quite often recommend mutual funds and stocks that tend to do very well but at the same time he strikes me as being on the conservative side as opposed to being a big risk taker. I like that in an investment adviser as I know that you do not have to take huge risks to make money in investing.
He has special prices on his newsletter at various times and he is easy to read and understand. One does not have to be a financial genius to understand what he writes. You could go to your local bank and get hoodwinked into a situation with one of their advisor's and then get sucked into the banks huge commissions. I have found that the financial advisor's in banks quite often are far more concerned with commissions for themselves and the bank. Much better to subscribe to a quality investment letter like Richard E. Bands.
