IAS Mentioned in Wall Street Journal
Posted on Wednesday, March 13, 2013
In the March 2, 2013 edition of The Wall Street Journal, Mark Hulbert, editor of the Hulbert Financial Digest, touted Investor Advisory Service as one of a limited number of stock-analysis services that provide valuable guidance on stocks that perform well in both bull and bear markets.
In his article, entitled "Stocks for Thick and Thin," Hulbert pointed to IAS as an example of a service whose stock-picking strategies did well during up and down markets, in light of the fact that current market’s volatility could produce some bearish patterns.
Hulbert writes, "I searched the more than 600 stock-picking strategies tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest for those that did well during both the 2000-02 and 2007-09 bear markets. To make sure I hadn't come up with approaches that are permanently bearish, I eliminated those that weren't also above-average performers during the intervening bull-market periods. Good news: There were a number of services—a dozen, in fact—that satisfied my search criteria. Among them: ... Investor Advisory Service, edited by Douglas Gerlach...."
IAS was among services whose winning strategies "favored stocks with large market capitalizations and so-called value stocks," Hulbert wrote. "The clear lesson: Large-cap value is the best category for performance through thick and thin."
