Don't Fall for Stock "Turnaround" Fairy Tales - Buy These Instead

Ah, that special time of year. The holidays are done, football season may as well be, and the prospect of baseball is a mere specter of a whiff of fresh-cut grass and hot dogs on the other side of all the ice and snow yet to come…

You'll have to forgive me for waxing poetic. On the other hand, I'm not doing it to sell you something… unlike the tidal wave of breathless prose currently inundating inboxes, courtesy of Wall Street and its good buddies in the mainstream financial media.

That's right: Investment clickbait season is here. Everywhere I look, I see "predictions" for 2018.

"Nine stocks to make all your dreams come true!" "One stock to rule them all in 2018!"
