Guiding Investors to Success
Since 1973


Where were you in 1973?

In that year, Secretariat won the Triple Crown, George Steinbrenner bought the New York Yankees, Skylab was launched, Richard Nixon was inaugurated for a second term, the Miami Dolphins defeated the Washington Redskins in the Super Bowl to complete their perfect season, and long lines at gas pumps were not uncommon.

And in 1973, the Investor Advisory Service (IAS) was first published.

Few investing newsletters can boast the longevity of the. For nearly 40 years, IAS has built up a track record of outperforming the overall market based on discovering high-quality, well-managed, growth-oriented stocks for its subscribers.

IAS was initially founded to service the needs of individual investors who wanted to follow the investing methodologies of BetterInvesting, a non-profit investment education organization, but who would rather have professional analysts do much of the work of identifying and analyzing stocks.

In 2004, ICLUBcentral Inc., a maker of software and tools for individual investors and investment clubs, acquired the Investor Advisory Service and named financial writer Douglas Gerlach as its Editor-in-Chief. In 2009, BetterInvesting and ICLUBcentral merged, bringing IAS back into the BetterInvesting family.

Throughout, the newsletter’s methodology has remained the same as it was at its founding. There are no “gimmicks” or secrets about the Investor Advisory Service’s stock market success – just a clear sense of what kinds of companies make for profitable investing in the stock market, and a whole lot of research and analysis performed by a team of talented and independent stock analysts.

Since 1973, the regular monthly Investor Advisory Service newsletter has helped thousands of subscribers to build wealth through regular investing in the stock market.
