For the 14th consecutive year, the award-winning Investor Advisory Service, the long-standing monthly stock investment newsletter published by ICLUBcentral Inc., has earned top honors of all newsletters and named to the Hulbert Investment Newsletter Honor Roll.
To be included on the 2023-2024 Honor Roll, newsletters must show above-average performance in both up and down markets over the past two decades. This is a remarkable achievement for any stock newsletter, and just four publications were named to the 2023-2024 Honor Roll. Of the four winners this year, no other newsletter has made the list as many times as the Investor Advisory Service, demonstrating just how unique this accomplishment is.
Impressively, of the fund and equity newsletters named to the Hulbert 2023-2024 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll, the IAS tied for the best performance in "Annualized Gain of Domestic Equity Portfolios" since October 31, 2007, and also ranked first in "Grade in Up Markets" for the same period.
According to HulbertRatings.com, the Investor Advisory Service buy picks generated an annual 11.6% total return during the 20-year period from October 31, 2007, through September 30, 2023. This considerably outperforms the Wilshire 5000 Total Stock Market Index return of 8.9% during the same timeframe.
"As the Investor Advisory Service celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2023, we are honored to be recognized for our performance during bear and bull market cycles," said Editor-in-Chief Douglas Gerlach. "Rising above the noise and churn that typifies Wall Street, our newsletter is a calm port in the storm, focusing on the long-term appreciation potential of well-run businesses.
"We believe that our newsletter's strength lies in our ability to see beyond the near-term and uncover hidden values in small, midsized, and large companies," continued Gerlach. "Self-motivated individual investors are often best-served by tuning out the irrelevant and focusing on what makes a business great. Once an excellent company is identified, then investors can take advantage of the opportunities created by other, fearful players in the markets to buy when others hesitate, and hold when others equivocate. Over time, we believe that our approach works as well as or even better than any other for individual investors."
Each issue of the award-winning Investor Advisory Service newsletter includes market commentary and two in-depth stock analyses, following an unbiased, long-term, growth stock investing approach. Each stock pick is accompanied by a thorough assessment of company fundamentals, an evaluation of the projected risk and return for the stock over the next five years, and suggested buy and sell prices.
"As we like to point out, we operate on the buy-side, making the Investor Advisory Service free from the conflicts of interest embedded in many traditional Wall Street institutions. Our disciplined approach is proven to generate results that are superior to the gains earned by passive investment strategies. By focusing on the quality of growth and company management, we have consistently uncovered companies that outperform their peers and the overall market—and our subscribers have profited."
Available in both print ($399/year) and online ($299/year) editions, the Investor Advisory Service is published monthly, with additional alerts and updates provided on a regular basis for subscribers.
