Catch a Windfall if You Can

Have you ever spent a long time working on something only to have your efforts overtaken by events?

If you enjoy researching new investment ideas like we do at Utility Forecaster, then you’ve probably had that happen a lot.

You finally find that rare stock that ticks off everything on your checklist—but it’s just too expensive at the moment. So you wait to pick it up at a cheaper price.

The problem is that other potential acquirers may already be circling. And they may not care about whether a stock has a reasonable valuation.

Here’s how that usually goes down: Before you’ve had a chance to hit the “Buy” button, rumors emerge of a potential takeover, and the stock surges in value. Oh well.

At the same time, it’s never a bad thing to have a disciplined investment process—and actually stick to it! That’s what we do at Utility Forecaster.

For every takeover target that got away, this discipline has saved us many more times from being stuck with dead weight.

In Sunday’s Income Without Borders, we’ll tell you how we evaluate potential takeover targets, as well as about the one that got away.

But if you don’t want to wait until then, we’ve got a special report that identifies nine high-quality takeover targets—utilities with strong fundamentals and attractive yields that haven’t been acquired … yet.
