During his more than ten years at Cabot, Michael Cintolo has uncovered exceptional growth stocks and helped to create new tools and rules for buying and selling stocks. Perhaps most notable was his development of the proprietary trend-following market timing system, Cabot Tides, which has helped Cabot place among the top investment newsletters numerous times. Cabot Growth Investor has been consistently recognized for outstanding performance by Hulbert Financial Digest and Timer Digest. It is one of Hulbert's top five newsletters for five-year risk-adjusted performance with a 13.2% annualized return as of June 30, 2011. It is also ranked among the Top Ten Newsletters by Timer Digest for long-term performance.
