One of the many benefits of using WallStreetSurvivor is that we do a lot of your homework for you. We are always looking for ways to help you make more money in the stock market or pay cheaper commissions to trade.
For example, for the past 15 months we have subscribed to a variety of stock and option picking newsletters and have paper traded their picks as if we were a typical investor. While we do buy all of the stocks or options that the service recommends, we don’t always make the trade exactly when we get the recommendations. Like you, we are busy doing other things, but we eventually get around to making the trades within a few days of getting the recommendation.
Based on our paper trading portfolios started at the end of 2016, the top performing stock newsletter for 2017 was the Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor. This service recommended stocks like SHOP (up 158% since we bought it), NVDA (up 120%) and MAR (up 97%) throughout 2017. And just so you know, they didn’t just happen to get lucky with a few stocks that doubled. As recently as Nov and Dec 2017, the Stock Advisor continue to recommend NVDA (up 28% since they recommended it again), ANET (up 25%), and AMZN (up 24%). Percentages are thru January 31, 2018. In our paper trading portfolios, we used 8% trailing stops to minimize risk of any poor picks and to help us take profits on any high fliers that might have had a significant pullback.
The Fool’s marketing campaign for this service says their portfolio is up an amazing 300% since inception, compared to the SP’s 85%. Based on our portfolio and digging more into the data they share, we are now believers.
Best of all, the Fool has LOWERED the price of this service to just $19 a month or $99 a year. That is a very reasonable price to pay for such solid stock picks. To get their next picks, click here.
