See which stocks to buy first

“Which stocks do I buy first?”

This is the question we get asked most by new subscribers, and understandably so. Building a portfolio and making money is the fun part. To answer this question, we have three suggestions for you…

  1. Consider first buying the Growth Spotlight and/or Income Spotlight stocks that we covered in the most recent issue of Utility Forecaster. Those may be found in your print issue or online under the Articles navigation menu.
  2. Always review the online portfolio pages, updated every two hours, to ensure that the Spotlight stocks still rate as a Buy and trade below our recommended Buy price.
  3. Get to know our investing philosophy and advice and How to Build A Portfolio.

Step 4 —

Read your first issue

Your monthly issue of Utility Forecaster is available online the Saturday prior to the first Wednesday of the month. The PDF version may be found from the home page using the red Download Current Issue bar at upper left.

Both the current PDF and the HTML versions are found under Issue Archives along with years of archived issues. Your subscription gets you access to all of our past issues at no additional cost.

If your subscription includes a print version, it will arrive by USPS mail around the first Wednesday of each month.

Service & Technical Help

Visit our Service & Technical Help page for a comprehensive list of common questions about using the website.

Follow the recent issue and Alerts

Due to time constraints, we may not always respond to individual questions which were answered in a recent issue or alert. When we get enough inquires on a new topic, we frequently issue an email alert or cover it in the next issue of Utility Forecaster. Stock Talk is also a good place to see if someone else may have asked and received a response on the same topic.

Contact our Customer Service Department
