Investing Newsletter Honored for Top Long-Term Performance
by for Fourth Consecutive Year
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Dec. 20, 2012 — For the fourth year in a row, stock newsletter the Investor Advisory Service has been named to the Hulbert Financial Digest's prestigious Investment Newsletter Honor Roll.
The Newsletter Honor Roll acknowledges those investing newsletters that exhibit above-average performance in both up and down markets. The 2013 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll includes 14 letters that have exceeded the market since March 31, 2000, thus identifying stock newsletters that display a high level of consistency during all phases of the stock market's cycles.
Hulbert began tracking the Investor Advisory Service's performance in the mid-1990s, so the IAS was first eligible for inclusion on its Honor Roll in 2010. That year also marked the Investor Advisory Service's first year on the Newsletter Honor Roll, and the IAS has been received the honor every year since then as well, giving it a perfect four-for-four record.
Since March 31, 2000, the Investor Advisory Service's stock picks have earned an exceptional annualized 8.9% gain through Nov. 30, 2012, quadrupling the mere 1.9% annual return of the Wilshire 5000 Total Stock Market Index during the same period.
According to Mark Hulbert , editor of the Hulbert Financial Digest, just 17% of all HFD-monitored newsletters made it onto the Honor Roll, suggesting that making it onto the Honor Roll "really means something."
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. To learn more about the IAS, sign up for a free investing newsletter at the newsletter's website.
