About Fidelity Investor
Published since 1998, Jim Lowell’s Fidelity Investor is the leading independent newsletter dedicated to making investing in Fidelity mutual fund investments safer and more profitable with a proprietary approach to selecting, evaluating, and investing in Fidelity fund managers.
Fidelity Investor believes in “buying the manager, not the fund,” making it the one place where subscribers find out just how skilled Fidelity fund managers are at selecting stocks, bonds, or a mix of both.
Fidelity Investor subscribers are known as “Fidelity’s Fortunate Few,” and the fund selections they get directly from Jim double and in many cases triple their returns. His strategies for investment income have boosted members’ annual income two-fold. Jim’s a bona fide Fidelity genius.
With Jim’s proprietary Manager Ranking System (MRS), “Fidelity’s Fortunate Few” see at a glance exactly how a Fidelity stock fund manager has fared relative to the market month in and month out since he or she began managing money.
In each monthly issue of Fidelity Investor, Jim covers performance updates on his different Fidelity Model Portfolios, smartly balanced and diversified, plus his monthly best buys. In addition, every monthly newsletter features Jim’s insight on what’s going on inside Fidelity and how that impacts investors, as well as exclusive interviews and appearances.
