"Word of warning, most of the paper is doom-and-gloom. "

Barron's editorials were almost always pessimistic. Abelson was almost a perma-bear, like Jim Grant. If you had followed their advice, you would have missed the whole 1990's boom to bust.

Their "roundtable" discussions were mostly worthless with academic studies showing the recommendations would have lost you money vs the S&P indices.

At its best, Barron's could be enormously informative and even witty.
