Is the Trade Alerts Service Right For Me?
Whether you are a novice or experienced investor or trader, our unique, market-beating, trade alerts system has the potential to super-charge your portfolio returns. You can selectively execute on the trade alerts on your own, or you can automate your trades for immediate execution via our partner, online broker DittoTrade®.
The service is particularly well-suited to busy professionals and entrepreneurs, as well as international customers, who may not have the time or willingness to do their own research, and cannot follow the markets during the trading day, but still want to generate above-average returns for their portfolio.
Which Trade Alerts Service is Right For Me?
If you want to automate your trade execution via our partner, online broker DittoTrade®, with the potential for improved pricing due to quicker execution, you should pick the ‘Trade Alerts Auto-Trade’ plan. If not, then the base ‘Trade Alerts’ service is right for you.
How do you Select Which Stocks to Trade?
At the core, we are stock pickers, screening for stocks with a huge catalyst for higher prices that is not yet factored into analyst estimates, creating a favorable risk/reward ratio. Our ideal target is a stock with higher fwd. growth than is baked into its price, and that is selling at a discount vs. its peers.
Besides news and quarter reports, we rely on our proprietary screens, tools & ratios developed over twenty years of trading the markets, including our Consensus Picks DIY tools, insider trading, and over a dozen other current & historical sector and stock-related analysis and indicators. Our picks are based on fundamental analysis, but we use technical analysis to more precisely time entries & exits.
Further examples of how we think about and analyze stocks can be found by gleaning through our over 900 articles on financial blogs, including Seeking Alpha.
How do you manage risk?
A number of different ways. One, diversification, as we generally hold ten-fifteen stocks, with an average of 7% weighting in each stock. And although over-invested in tech, we try to be not over-concentrated in any one tech industry group. Two, position sizing, as we size positions based on market-cap, stock and industry risk. Three, we trade only stocks, no options, futures or any other leverage instruments. Four, shorting and trading counter-cyclical stocks with a small portion of the portfolio, when market conditions warrant it. Five, we don’t day-trade, with our average holding period being about four weeks.

Can I Beat the Market Using Your System?
The performance of our trade alerts system is as illustrated on this page. Our trade alert e-mails are time-stamped for easy verification, should you choose to do so, and they are also easily retrievable from the performance tables on the member pages.
The alert prices used in calculating system performance correspond to the time the trade alerts were sent. In a study aggregating 350+ alerts sent during the first 14 mos. of trading, we found that the average price in the first 15 min. after the alerts were sent were 0.3% lower for buy alerts, in your favor, and 1.0% lower in the case of sell alerts. All of this data is available on the member pages.
Where slippage is still a concern, auto-trade alert execution, offered via DittoTrade® offers you the convenience, as well as the potential for better pricing.
If you still have any doubts, please contact us with your questions. We usually respond promptly, and always within 24 hours. Also, you should be assured that if you decide to give us a try, all of our memberships on GuruFundPicks.com come with a no questions asked, 100% money-back guarantee, as long as you cancel before the first 30-days after you subscribe to one of our plans.

Do you focus on any one Sector or group?
Yes and No. No, because we are opportunistic, and are in principle sector agnostic. Yes, because our bias for under-followed growth opportunities often lands us in the technology space. The graph below illustrates the Sector distribution of our picks since inception.
Do you focus on any particular market-cap?
Yes. Over the years, we have determined that our unique fundamentals-based news-event based strategy offers the best potential upside when focusing on the small-cap portion of the market. However, we are not exclusively focused on small-caps, and will trade mid- and large-caps when appropriate. To-date, about 85% of our trades have been in the small-cap space, with most of the remaining 15% in the mid-cap segment.
Do you buy penny stocks?
We are opportunistic, so we don’t rule out any stocks based on price. That having been said, we try extremely hard to avoid them, and will only consider them in exceptional situations where the potential upside is just too difficult to forgo, and that too if the company can pass through our rigorous checks for quality. The chart below illustrates the price distribution of our picks since inception. As indicated, stocks priced at <$2 constitute only about ten percent of our picks, with penny stocks (<$1) at less than half of that. The median price of our picks is usually in the $10 to $15 range.

What Our Subscribers Are Saying About Us
…Wow! I can’t believe my portfolio was up in January while markets took a nosedive. Thanks!
I like that you include fundamental ‘thesis’ (in your alerts). It is informative and educational.
I have followed you on Seeking Alpha, and have benefited from many of your picks. I appreciate the opportunity to subscribe to your service.
Your devotion and attention is commendable… I appreciate your 2nd note on PLUG even after you sold it earlier. It helped me get out near the top.
Thank you for your prompt response, which is a hallmark of your service….I would also say that your service is the first which I have seen which does not overstate your gains.
I buy only large-caps, so your service was not for me… You do the cancellation very well, prompt, honest.
