Industries Show Great Resilience This Earnings Season

Another week, another cyber-attack. With only 11 days remaining before the election, Iran and Russia were singled out by U.S. officials for stealing voter registration data and sending emails designed to intimidate voters.

This attack is more of the same from foreign adversaries who wish to divide Americans, and to sow discord and mistrust in the democratic process.

Earlier this month, I shared with you a report by Microsoft showing that Russia is by far the number one source of cyber threats, followed by Iran, China and North Korea.

I’m telling this to you now as a reminder not only to stay vigilant and read the news with a critical eye, especially when it pertains to the upcoming election. I also want to remind you of the value you get by being an Investor Alert subscriber.

I believe what our team produces every single week, without fail, can be stacked up against financial newsletters produced by companies and institutions many times our size. We regularly work late on Friday to bring you timely research and insight that can’t be found in a lot of places. The Microsoft report is a good example of that. We were also one of the first firms to talk about the monthly purchasing manager’s index (PMI), and now I see it being reported everywhere.

The Investor Alert—or “IA,” as we call it—is absolutely free to you, but for us, it’s resource-intensive. If I had to guess, I would say we spend at least $1 million a year just on the IA.

We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we’ll continue to do it for as long as there are still readers.
With that said, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being a subscriber. If you like what you read and find value in it, please consider forwarding the IA to someone you think might also enjoy it. It would be much appreciated!
