According to Mark Hulbert, “The most important reason to pay attention to the Newsletter Honor Roll, in my opinion: It helps you steer clear of particularly risky services that, even though they may produce stellar long-term returns, require more intestinal fortitude to follow than most investors possess.”

When it comes to providing greater returns than the market during both bull and bear cycles, few newsletters can match the Investor Advisory Service record.

Here are all of the investment newsletters that have been named to the Hulbert Investment Newsletter Honor Roll since 2010. You will see that the IAS returns during the Honor Roll period are higher than any of the stock advisor newsletters that appear most consistently on the list -- a tribute to our slow-and-steady approach to drive investment returns for subscribers.

Note that many of these newsletters focus on mutual funds or market timing, while the Investor Advisory Service focuses on fundamental analysis of the long-term growth potential of common stocks. This traditional approach to stock analysis has reaped big rewards compared to many other newsletters and services.

Unlike more short-term-oriented, trading-style newsletters such as the Motley Fool Stock Advisor, Seeking Alpha's Alpha Picks, or Bob Brinker's Marketimer, the IAS methodology can be implemented by any investor, doesn't require huge amounts of initial capital, and only requires a few buys and sells a year.
