Where does an investor go for good advice?
The Internet and the media are full of false and misleading
claims about the performance of investment professionals. You can lose your shirt
or worse, your life savings, by following the advice of many on-line hucksters.
Rating the Pros is designed to track the recommendations of various sources of investment
advice so that you can separate the
gurus from the frauds. Think of us
as the Consumer Reports of the investment world.
Who do we rate?
Rating the pros follows the recommendations of brokerage
houses, investment advisors, newsletters, magazines, newspapers, TV reports and
various Internet resources.
How do we “Rate The Pros”?
We let the results speak for themselves.
We track as many resources as possible, entering the investment and the date
recommended. Our software tracks the
security on a daily basis and then the total return for the portfolio of each investment
professional. Each “Pro” is then ranked
based on the performance of their total portfolio. We close out each transaction
whenever the source recommends or delete it from the portfolio within a year. This way you have an ongoing indication
of how you would have fared following their advice. We do not track transaction
We only list brokerage house recommendations of Buy or Strong
Buy. We also include short sale advice. We encourage each source to contact
us if they feel the investment position should be closed out.
We follow only NYSE, ASE and NASDAQ securities.
