Herb Greenberg’s Investment Opportunities is a monthly newsletter featuring the best ideas from Herb Greenberg, who spent nearly 40 years as a financial journalist at some of the country’s leading news outlets.

Herb served as senior stocks commentator at CNBC and was financial correspondent at the Chicago Tribune. He also spent 10 years as the daily business columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, during which time he started his five-year run as Fortune‘s monthly Against the Grain columnist and was the morning business reporter for San Francisco’s KRON-TV.

In Herb Greenberg’s Investment Opportunities, Herb and his team focus on recommending stocks of high-quality companies while keeping an eye on broken initial public offerings (“IPOs”) and special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) of high-quality businesses that have gotten washed away.

Ideally, these businesses have little coverage by Wall Street, and they won’t be what Herb likes to call “TV names”… that is, names so popular that they’re always in the headlines.
