Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Is your system based on day trading, market timing, or jumping in and out of the market?

A: No. In our opinion, the only people who get rich in the long run with day trading are those that profit by "helping" others to day trade. Excessive trading leads to higher commissions, higher capital gains taxes, and a drain on your time. Ours is a low-maintenance process that lets you have a life away from your computer. Furthermore, we do not recommend market timing or any other mechanism for jumping in and out of the market. A subscriber could certainly implement their own market timing system with our recommended portfolios. However, being conservative investors, we believe in being fully invested and staying fully invested. The stocks in our Primary Stock Portfolio are held for an average of nearly three years. Most of our other portfolios also have low turnover.

It is possible to make significant profits in a short time using our newsletter (for example, we recommended that our aggressive investors buy $660 of Zimmer Holdings options; a little over seven months later we recommended the options be sold for $5,260). However, our philosophy is to invest for the long run. That means we recommend committing to investing for at least five years, and most likely more. That doesn't necessarily mean we hold each stock or mutual fund for five years, but it does mean that the whole portfolio be invested for at least five years. The shorter time you plan on committing to investing, the more it resembles gambling than investing. We are investors, not gamblers.

There is one exception to the rule, and that is our collection of Stock Screens for Short-Term Investing (available separately from our regular subscription). While doing our investment research, we do come across a few stocks that are prime candidates for holding for a month or two. Furthermore, our subscribers often ask for stocks to buy with cash that has accumulated in their accounts while waiting for the next buy signal for our Primary Stock Portfolio. To fulfill your requests, we have sought to create a list of growth stocks that are poised to take off in the near future. While the stocks in the Short-Term Stock Screens may be traded frequently, we suggest that these stocks be used only periodically for ensuring that idle cash is put to work to keep one's portfolio fully invested.
