In an unprecedented sixth straight year, we are pleased to report that the Hulbert Financial Digest has named the Investor Advisory Service to its 2015 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll.
In order to be included on the Honor Roll, a newsletter must exhibit above-average performance in both up and down markets since March 31, 2000. Just 16% of all newsletters tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest qualified to be included on the 2015 roster. And out of the 20 separate newsletters that have been named to the HFD Investment Newsletter Honor Roll since 2010 (the first year that IAS was eligible), IAS is just one of three newsletters that have received the honor every year.
For the period from March 31, 2000 through November 30, 2014, the Investor Advisory Service stock picks gained an annualized 10.9% compared to 4.6% for the Wilshire 5000. This record is good enough to be ranked #3 for overall return among the 12 newsletters on the 2015 Honor Roll.
According to Mark Hulbert, “The most important reason to pay attention to the HFD’s 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 theInvestor Advisory Service record.
