Beating The Markets By ~5,400 basis pts… Here Is How We Can Help You…
Is the Newsletter Service Right For Me?
Whether you are a value or growth investor, our newsletters, based on collective or Consensus Picks’™ by over 330 of Wall St.’s top fund managers, hand picked by us, have the potential to super-charge your portfolio returns. You can use the Newsletters to cherry-pick ideas for you to explore further, as most do, or you can use them to automatically re-balance your portfolio every quarter via our partner, online broker DittoTrade®.
What Is Your Consensus Picks’™ System?
Our Consensus Picks™ system is based on our latest intelligence of the buying & selling by . Broadly speaking, it gives a way for the average investor to access not one, but a mastermind of Wall St.’s top fund managers, and buy what a multitude of them are buying in bulk and/or sell the ones that a large number of them are exiting in a hurry.
Our GuruRank® system then ranks each of over 6,300 stocks in terms of its relative attractiveness to these top fund managers, based on their latest buying & selling, and our GuruValue™ system assigns a dynamic valuation target to each stock, based on our proprietary algorithm that calculates what value Gurus would assign to each stock today, based on current conditions.
What Other Factors Go Into Picking Stocks?
The Consensus Picks’™ system is a starting point, albeit a critical one, to picking stocks for the Newsletter strategies. We pick from the top 5% ranked stocks, 20 small-cap and 5 large-cap stocks, based on a rigorous fundamental analysis, supplemented by insider trading data, and over a dozen other current & historical sector and stock-related analysis and indicators. Similarly, we pick top 5 short-sell picks from the bottom-ranked stocks. These are then packaged into the Top 20 Small-Cap and the Top 30 All-Cap Long/Short Strategies.
Do you focus on any one Sector or group?
Newsletter picks are generally diversified across all sectors. In fact, as shown in the illustration below, outside of a slight over-concentration in tech & healthcare at the expense of financials & utilities, the sector distribution of the Newsletter strategy is similar to the market.
Which Newsletter Should I Choose?
The Top 20 Small-Cap Newsletter has out-performed both the Russell 2000 small-cap index and the Top 30 All-Cap L/S Newsletter by wide margins (see performance #’s in right column). So, based on returns, the Top 20 would be your best bet. There are other reasons, however, why you might choose the Top 30, including portfolio diversification and downside protection. Also, we will note that the relative under-performance of the Top 30 is mainly on account of losses on short sells, due to the strong market rally, as the large-cap picks in the Top 30 actually had comparable returns to the Top 20 small-caps.
We would like you to experience the full breadth of Newsletter picks from the Consensus Picks’™ system, so as to judge it fairly. Hence, as an incentive, we are offering complimentary a channel of your choice (a $120 value) if you subscribe to the Top 30 newsletter (please see the DIY Tools offering for what’s included).

14Periodic e-mails outlining value opportunities.
When Are Newsletters Published?
Quarterly. The Top 20 & Top 30 Newsletters are based on our Consensus Picks’™ system that goes through a major refresh every quarter after the SEC deadline for institutional quarterly 13-F filings (on 2/17,5/15,8/14 & 11/14 in 2015). Newsletters are typically published within 3-5 days after the refresh of our Consensus Picks’ system.
What Holding Period Do You Recommend?
The performance results in the right column assume a portfolio re-balance every quarter, flushing out prior quarter picks and replacing them with the most recent quarter picks. Depending on portfolio size and based on personal preference, you can easily modify that to your requirements, for example, by keeping the latest two or three quarters picks in the portfolio. Our research indicates comparable results up to four quarters, with the exception that our large-cap picks performed significantly better with longer holding periods.

What Our Subscribers Are Saying About Us
WOW! A hell of report. If I compare to others, you are by far many steps ahead with your visual presentation and analyzing… KUDOS
I have copied Icahn, Klarman and other experts for a while, with limited success. Your Consensus Picks just make a lot more sense to me, and the results so far have been good.
The time, patience and attention you gave in answering all of my questions, including many obvious ones, is rare to find. I wish you success!
I buy only large-caps, so your service was not for me… You do the cancellation very well, prompt, honest.
