The Kiplinger Letter aims to be an alternative to the wide array of modern-day business news and advice. Such writing is far too often the product of inadequate research or suffers with regard to accuracy, based on the biases of its sources, claims the company's website.

In the publication's history of more than 90 years, its writers have furnished worthwhile forecasts and analyses of such industries as real estate, building, housing, health care, technology and banking. At one extreme, profit margins of over 3,000 percent have been experienced by the most fortunate among those who have acted on the Kiplinger Letter's advice, according to the company's website.

The Kiplinger Letter offers more modest profit forecasts, such as 4 to 6 percent, to its everyday readers, and claims to be able to offer such margins in the face of any economic climate. The publication backs up its claims of being a worthwhile benefit to investors by offering all of its subscribers who are unsatisfied with its investment insights a full refund on their subscription costs.
