Today we have Dr. Tom Madell on the Financial Impact Factor Radio with Paul Petillo, Dave Kittredge and Dave Ng to discuss mutual funds. He writes a newsletter – which is one of those “back-in-the-day” terms for a publication that was printed and dispersed it to fans of that writer’s opinions. Nowadays, blogs and websites do much of the same kind of thing but without the wasted ink and paper – but the term has stuck and Dr. Tom has consistently published his thoughts on the subject of today’s show for over a decade.
His Mutual Fund Research Newsletter began publication in 1999 and during that time has become one of the most popular mutual fund newsletters on the Internet. Dr. Tom is a researcher/writer whose investing articles have appeared on hundreds of websites, including the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and in the international media. So on this subject, he has street cred. More importantly, rather than simply writing about mutual funds, he has created model portfolios for investors to mimic.
