Horizon Publishing Company, formerly known as Dow Theory Forecasts, Inc., has been located in Hammond, Indiana since 1946. We publish investment newsletters for individual investors nationwide. Dow Theory Forecasts, our flagship publication, has been published every week for 65 years and is highly regarded among the investment community.
Founded by LeRoy Evans in 1946, the company is owned by LeRoy's son, Robert Evans. LeRoy Evans, an astute investor, created Dow Theory Forecasts to advise and educate individual investors on investing and the stock market.
Today, Horizon is run by Chief Executive Officer Charles B. Carlson, who lives in Valparaiso and is the author of nine investment books including newly published The Little Book of Big Dividends and best selling Buying Stocks Without A Broker and Eight Steps To Seven Figures. Some of his other books include, Winning With The Dow's Losers, Chuck Carlson's 60-Second Investor and The Smart Investor's Survival Guide. In fact, Chuck coined the term No-Load Stocks, and is oftentimes referred to in the press as "the individual investor's most important ally." He frequently appears on television and radio shows including CNBC, CNN, NBC's Today Show, WBBM's Noon Business Hour and Business Radio Network. His comments have appeared in such newspapers and magazines as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Business Week, Forbes, Barron's, Money and Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
In 1977 Horizon created its own in-house printing operation, which became so successful that in the mid-1990's this operation spun off into Lithographic Communications, LLC, a full service printing and mailing company located in Munster. In 1992 Horizon launched DRIP Investor, a monthly newsletter created and edited by Mr. Carlson, which focuses on dividend reinvestment plans, buying stocks directly without a broker and without paying commission. In 1997 the company once again expanded its services to include money management through a sister company, Horizon Investment Services. And, in 2003, Horizon Investment Services launched an independent advisory service for Corporate 401(k) Retirement and Profit Sharing plans.
Being in the investment advice business can be quite daunting in volatile markets such as we've had recently. It is testament to the quality of our advice and services that we have weathered up and down markets, market crashes, recessions, the dot-com craze and everything else that has happened in the past 65 years.
