An Investment
Message
Yesterday we published a
message as follows :
"Perhaps never again will
there be such bargains in
investment securities as the
market now offers, and so
we say to all, and this
means you,?scrape togeth?
er all the money you can
get without borrowing and
buy investment securities?
and buy them now."
We said in our letter of yes?
terday, "Many of the safest se?
curities arc selling at the heavi?
est discount. There is a rea?
son for this, which we will ex?
plain in another letter January
2nd." This is the explanation :
We have had a long period of
abnormally high interest rates.
We used to issue 5< ' bonds and
sell them at par. Many of the
bonds being issued now bear an
8r? rate. Nobody is going to
buy a 5?? bond at par if they
can get an equally safe 8%
bond at par. Many investors
are taking the bonds out of
their safe deposit vaults that
they had carefully selected over
i ter\n of years and are selling
them for whatever they will
bring and are putting the pro
?eeaU into tax exempt securi?
ties. The investor who comes
in the highest surtax bracket
yf the Federal Income Tax must
? ?ay to the government 73% of
his income. He gets ??O.OO in
? irest per year on his bond and
he government takes ;>?>6.50 of
it, leaving him with $13.50.
Now, if he buys a municipal
bond which is tax exempt he
?rets and keeps his full 950.00.
Stated in another way, he can
get as much income from a
51,000.00 tax exempl bond as
he would gei from $3.700.00!
'nvested in corporation bonds.!
The above is only one of the
many reasons why we say that i
perhaps never again will we seej
such investment bargains.
Now as to safety. The public
sees a bond selling at, say. 70'.' :
"?' its fa? e or par value and
-ays, "Why, it cannot be safe."
Many of these bonds are not
ally safe but safer than when
some big capitalist after care?
ful investigation bought them
at par and carried' them with
pride and satisfaction to his
safe deposit vault. We have
shown in the above example
!'OW. if he sold $3.700.00 of
hese bonds for $1,000.00 and
bought tax exempt bonds his
income would be no less. In
other words, if income alone
?'?ere to be considered he could
-ell his corporate bonds at 27e?'
)f. their face value and have
[ust as much income.
Now let us assume, simply
l'or illustration, that one block
?f bonus were issued on a
hydro-electric power plant
built before the outbreak of the
war. V -? will a-su me the plant
was originally bonded for 50%
if its cost and all of the bonds
are still outstanding*. This
same plant could not now be re?
produced for double its origi
eal cost, so these bonds only
represent -?">' of the repro?
duction cos? of -the property.
As the bonds can now be
bought for 7()'? of their face
value it means that the pur
chase price paid now for the
bond1-; is only 17.5' of the re?
production value. The above
is only an example of one? type
of many safe investment bar?
gains.
Thai there are rare bargains
tobe had cannot be questioned.
However, there was never
'-ireatt-r need for discrimination
in making purchases. We are
confident oi beim? able to get
you nal'e and profitable invest?
ments. While we solicit your
confidence and patronage,
nevertheless ou r m e s s a g .s
stands, "Buy, and buy now,
upon either our advice or upon
the advice of any of the many
reputable houses that deal i?i
investment securities." If you
eare to leave it to our iudgment
we will treat it as an honor
transaction.
Yours cordially,
HENRY L. DOHERTY
& COMPANY,
60 Wall Street,
New York.

Cotton Recovers
After Sharp Drop
To New Low Marks
January ?Contracts Advance
Rapidly as Shorts Cover,!
Steadying Whole List;
March Near 13-Cent Level j
An early decline, establishing new
low records for mo.it deliveries, was
followed by sharp rallies in the cotton !
market yesterday. January was rola- !
tively firm, selling up from 13.75c to I
14.P3c, and closing at 14.52, compared i
with 14.02c at the close of the previous j
day. Traders short of January con- '.
tracts were evident'y rendered moro
uneasy by the threat of a harbor strike >
here beginning on Saturday.
The few January notices so far ,
issued have been promptly stopped, and !
with a possibility t;-.at labor troubles !
will interfore with the bringing of cot- ?
ton here from the South in time for
delivery next month shorts were evi- !
dently disposed to cover an?! found
comparatively few contracts for sale. I
Both Liverpool and iocal spot house
brokers were among the buyers on tho
advance, which ran the price about;
?.'.?" points above tic quotation for |
March. The strength of the January ?
position pulled up fho rest of the list \
and the market clcsed steady at a !
rot advance of 7 to 50 points.
Southern spot matkets, r.s officially'
???? "orted, were unchanged to TO points
higher, middling quotations ranging
from 12.90c at Houston to 14.50c at
Savannah.
The local market for snot cotton

Wheat Is Firmer
As Shorts Cover
In Light Trading
Tone Improves After Early
Decline and Prices Rally'
on Stronger Technical Po?
sition; Volume Is Small
The wheat market was firmer and
prices regained mo.st of the losses
which had been experienced on Monday
and Tuesday, closing with net gains for
the day of S'/sc. Early in the session
there was a decline of l1,-ic under sell?
ing owing to disappointment over the
fact that British buyers had not come
hi as expected and on deliveries of
230,000 bushels on December contracta
in Chicago.
From this level, however, the mar?
ket gained stcadilv and at the close
displayed a much firmer tone. The vol?
ume of business was not large, and it
was the opinion of some students of
conditions that the upturn had been
the result, of a firmer technical posi?
tion, which resulted in covering in a
market devoid of offers.
In the local cash market No. 2 re.-]
was quoted at $1.99 and No. 2 hard at
