Quantcast
I have 35 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Default Are Stock Picking and Research Services Worth the Price?

    Earlier this year I had a free trial with Zacks and eventually bought a 1 year research access subscription for $199. Also after trying various trials of Vectorvest products, I signed on for a month to month subscription for $59/month. A person couldn't buy all the stocks listed as "buy" or "strong buy" by Zacks and VV as there are probably more than 500 on any day. I check out each newly rated stock's chart, its earnings record, strength of industry group, relative timing amongst other fundamentals. After eliminating 99% of the stocks there's always 1 or 2 that pass all the tests so it often gets bought.

    Checking back to April of this year I classified my buys and sells as found through Zacks, Vectorvest, or a combination of both. Here are my current results.

    Zacks realized gains--PPC 600 shares bot 4/4 4/7 sold +46.33% $2507
    ---------------------AMBA 400 shares bot 4/4 4/11 sold +15.49% $850

    Zacks realized losses-800 shares HT bot 7/25 7/29 sold -------5.50% -$273


    Vectorvest unrealized gain (holding) 2000 shares LBMH bot 9/10 9/27 +4.35% $180
    Zacks unrealized gain (holding) 200 shares KKR bot 4/7 +25.39% +$991
    Zacks unrealized loss (holding) 100 shares PAG bot 9/25 -7.97% -$342..

    Both Zacks and Vectorvest agreed ratings
    BLOX bot 150 shares 7/16 still holding +48% +$2179
    III bot 1675 shares 9/11 9/19 9/30 still holding +15.54% +$1041
    QIHU bot 100 shares 9/20 still holding -3.67% -$323

    Totals Realized gains $3357 realized losses -$273

    Unrealized gains $4302 unrealized losses -$665

    Total realized and unrealized gains $7748
    Total realized and unrealized losses -$937
    Amount paid to VV and Zacks in 2013--$789.....................so far so good. I've made many other buys I didn't record what source but I've not had a really big loss this year. Also holding many big dividend payers probably for the long haul.

    It's free and Huge! Even though you don't recommend stocks to buy, some of the ones you mention seem to do quite well in the marketplace.

    Well put billy! Plus, I also enjoy donating to good causes that Mr. Market brings to my attention. (something the paid services never do)

    I do subscribe to gorillatrades and as long as I stay away from Options suggestions the subscription has more than paid for itself.
