I not only walked away from this dog, I ran..... Please read some of the NZ news articles coming from down under (SEE Income Investors Board ie II NZT.) That nice dividend is likely to soon be a thing of the past.

If this is true, it certainly nullifies any credibility that the II newsletter had as far as the quality of their research, and their analysis of risk factors applied to their stock recommendations.

As recently as 3 or so months ago, just prior to everything unravelling for NZT, II was strongly recommending NZT as one of the two "best" stocks on their list on a risk/reward basis. It made the stock extremely appealing.

I am a former subscriber to the II, and though overall I do not think it is a bad newsletter, but when a newsletter gives highpraise to a stock pick like they did for NZT, in my opinion they had better make pretty darn good sure they know what they are talking about (research and analysis wise) before they give such strong advice. A lot of trusting folks stand to be hurt from trusting too much.

Too much of newsletter stock picking and advertising, in my opinion, is geared to wooing subscribers with appeals to their greed for quick and safe riches. "Buyer beware." (the English from Latin translation).
