About The Cheap Investor
TheCheapInvestor.com is the online home of the Bill Mathews’ stock investment newsletter of the same name, The Cheap Investor, which he claims anyone can use for free information and analysis for money earning investment opportunities.
According to the website, Bill Mathews says that of the last 243 stocks that he has picked, 241 have gone on to make the investors money, with average gains of 162%. And new subscribers to his website can receive his next stock pick, along with detailed analysis, for free.
Mathews says that many aspects of the financial industry have changed since he established his newsletter in 1981, but the most basic method of successful stock investing is still true: the best way to make money in the stock market is to buy stocks before they get expensive and then “ride them up.”
The Cheap Investor says that though that is a simple philosophy, it is hard for the average person to tell the difference between stocks which are undervalued and will rise in price and stocks that are “garbage.” This is where the newsletter becomes useful.
The newsletter will give you Bill Mathews’ stock picks along with detailed analysis of why he believes they are good choices. You will also have an option to get a free copy of his eBook “Making BIG Money in Small Stocks,” which has “proven” profit making strategies.
However, all financial newsletters including The Cheap Investor give a disclaimer saying that all advice they provide through their publication should be double checked either through your own personal research or through a professional investment advisor.
These publications take no legal responsibility for any negative consequences you may incur from following their advice, and as always, the best rule of investing is to never invest more money than you are able to lose comfortably.
And though this website says it will never sell your information to a third party company, they do provide links to third party associates through their website and publications. Once you leave their site for a partner company, you must always remember that you are dealing with a new set of policies that you should investigate before buying a product or providing personal info.

9 ‘The Cheap Investor’ Reviews
There is no subscription now
It is a free news letter! Maybe SEC got onto his butt and cut him off from selling subscriptions. But up front he tells you that this is speculation stock. Speculation stock can go either way; way up or way down. Just use the money you were going to drink beer with to invest with speculation stock, that way you will loose your "Done Loped" condition (Belly done loped over your belt)
If it sounds too good to be true usually it isn't, use you head and common sense with speculation stock.
Pump and Dump
Only subscribe to this rag if you want to lose your money. Bought four stocks on the recommendation of Cheap Investor. Track record-two already declared bankruptcy and the other two have lost 95% and 60% respectfully. Look very closely at the record. Most if not all the stocks recommended experience a very short gain cycle and then tank. Matthews then claims a 100% winner rate. What a crock!
So Far So Bad
I am in the third week of my subscription and so far I can testify that this website is entirely screwed up and the customer service sucks. Most of my emails have gone unanswered. Some links on the website don't work. I complained that I could not navigate to the October, Novermber and December "Advanced Wealth Newsletters" and could only access the September issue. They responded with a link that did not work and then informed me that had some "technical difficulties" getting the October, Novermber and December issues on-line and that they would be available "tomorrow". "Tomorrow" has come and gone.
Does that mean that the subscribers to the October, November and December issue are still waiting? What nonsense. I suggested that they simply put the October, November and December issues right below the September issue which is EASILY accessed.
This is one very strange and utterly incompetently run website and that is the nicest way of putting it.
How is this guy not in jail??? He seems to think he can play the short game, including planing reviews here, but how does he think he's not going down? Watch for the news...
By Design, All Stock Pick Newsletters are a Fraud/Scam
If anyone could truly and consistently and legally pick winners in the market, they would quietly cash in on their ability.
It would be absurd for them to bother writing, editing, publishing, and customer-servicing a lousy $40 newsletter, when they can easily make vast amounts in the market trading their winners with the click of a mouse.
