Welcome to the Wall Street Revelator. Please don't be too taken aback by our spare looking homepage. We chose it for a simple reason… it reflects nothing of the clichés you find at most financial/investment advisory sites… it purposely reflects nothing about Wall Street, the capital markets, or the fear mongers of the financial publishing industry, which care little about individuals or their financial well being.

At the Wall Street Revelator, we seek readers who are loath to follow crowds - people with lively minds who are interested in ideas as much as they are in making money. So please join us daily on our blog… and subscribe to a well-written financial newsletter that puts you first. But most of all, feel free to agree, disagree and challenge, because that is what community is all about.



Andrew Carpenter is a global investment specialist. Lynn Carpenter is a value investing legend. Like all professionals, they make mistakes. They encourage you to do your own independent "due diligence" on any idea that they either blog about or publish in the Wall Street Revelator newsletter, because they could be wrong. They have been wrong before.

Nothing written here is an invitation to buy or sell any particular security; at most, Andrew and Lynn are handing out educated guesses as to what the markets and particular stocks could do. As Andrew is fond of saying, "the markets always find a new way to make a fool out of you," and "while everyone else is getting 80 degrees and clear skies, you could be getting the thunderstorm."

So, both Andrew and Lynn encourage caution in investing. Risk control wins the game in the long run, not bold moves.
