In order to be included on the Investment Newsletter Honor Roll, a newsletter must exhibit above-average performance in both up and down markets since March 31, 2000. Just 15% of all newsletters tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest qualified to be included on the 2014 roster.
According to Mark Hulbert, “There are numerous reasons to pay attention to which newsletters make it onto the HFD
’s Newsletter Honor Roll
. Perhaps the most obvious is that, on average, they tend to outperform the newsletters that do not make the grade.”
Indeed, for the period from March 31, 2000 through November 30, 2013, the Investor Advisory Service
stock picks gained an annualized 11.1% compared to 3.8% for the Wilshire 5000. This record is good enough to be ranked #3 for overall return among the 12 newsletters on the 2014 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll
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. We’re grateful to all of our subscribers for their support and wish you the best of investing success in 2014 and beyond.
