About Tom Bishop

Tom Bishop is the editor of BI Research (, and has been actively investing in the stock market for over 35 years. Tom Bishop began publishing BI Research in 1981, with the goal to put out an investment newsletter that contained everything he always wanted in a newsletter. Tom Bishop does all the research himself, using a fundamental approach and the BI Ranking System, which he developed while earning his MBA in finance from Cornell University. The BI Ranking system is a weighted index that considers Relative Strength, EPS growth rates, EPS surprises, PE to growth rate, and other relevant factors.

About BI Research

BI Research is a 12-page investment newsletter which uses fundamental analysis and emphasizes mid to smaller cap stocks. Tom Bishop reviews hundreds of stocks, and boils these down to the 3 to 5 stocks that many services would recommend. He then analyzes these stocks in-depth using the BI Ranking System to pick the one stock for each issue that Tom Bishop is most excited about. The BI Research newsletter consists of a detailed recommendation that runs about two pages, followed by a brief market commentary section that also summarizes the recommended percentage of stocks vs. cash. The balance of every newsletter is devoted to updating subscribers on every stock they have recommended via detailed updates every 6 weeks until a "sell" is issued.

In addition, a Telephone Update Line is provided, which BI Research subscribers can call to get a recording covering the latest on what is happening between issues. If one of Tom Bishop's stocks soars (or tanks), odds are very good that a subscriber can call the Update Line and find out what is going on. E-mail delivery is also available.

Manage Your Portfolio with the Position Manager

There are quite a variety of investment newsletter services available to investors today, which achieve a decent track record. In reality, however, many newsletters have not translated well for most investors that subscribe to them. The reason? Money management. Without the proper position sizing using the right money management tool, you are only dealing with half the formula for success.

Let's face it: if there was one consistently successful investment newsletter, then the word would spread rapidly, and that one investment newsletter would have more customers than the population of China. The reality is that there has never been such a success. Why? Because in the final analysis, 8 out of 10 investors fail due to one simple reason: position sizing.

The majority of investors who subscribe to investment newsletters think that the process is as simple as "Just give me your recommendations and let me become as successful as you are". Unfortunately, as money managers know, entry points account for very little in the overall success of a portfolio. Find out why! is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, Tom Bishop or
