About Us

The McEwen Investment Report was established in New Zealand in 1998 and has since grown to become a global title, offering fresh thinking and analysis of shares on the NZ, Australian, UK and US stock markets.

Edited by David McEwen, a former journalist (Financial Times, Reuters News Service, National Business Review) turned investment analyst, the newsletter offers timely and easy-to-understand commentary on shares to buy, hold and sell using his unique 9 Key Criteria.

Developed over 30 years of watching the markets, these criteria are a simple and proven way to find the financial quality of a company and the value of its shares. MIR’s Watch Lists of companies that meet the highest number of these criteria have outperformed the markets significantly over the past two decades.

In addition, each newsletter contains articles that tell you what is really going on in the world economy, financial markets, society and geopolitics.

Rather than focus on small-cap penny dreadful stocks that sometimes make investors a fortune (but more often lose it), the newsletter looks for Blue Chip stocks at bargain prices. Large, financially sound companies sometimes fall out of favour with investors – which is when we recommend them! – but inevitably recover. While you are waiting, they tend to pay generous dividends as along the way.
