For a remarkable seventh consecutive year, the Investor Advisory Service stock newsletter has been nationally recognized as one of the top-performing investing newsletters in the U.S. by the Hulbert Financial Digest.
In an unprecedented seventh straight year, we’re pleased to report that the Hulbert Financial Digest has named the Investor Advisory Service to its 2016 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 14 percent of all newsletters tracked by the Hulbert Financial Digest qualified to be included on the 2016 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, 2015, the Investor Advisory Service stock picks gained an annualized 10.4 percent compared to 4.5 percent for the Wilshire 5000.
This record is good enough to be ranked No. 2 for overall return among the 12 newsletters on the 2016 Honor Roll.
According to HFD publisher Mark Hulbert:
“The most important reason to pay attention to it is that 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. There’s another reason as well: On average, the newsletters that make it on the Honor Roll tend to outperform the newsletters that do not make the grade.”
When it comes to providing greater returns than the market during both bull and bear cycles, few newsletters can match the record of the Investor Advisory Service. Subscriptions are available here.
