Louis Navellier is one of my services, actually, two of them, Emerging Growth which is a monthly service and Quantum Growth, which is a weekly service. For today's lesson, all statistics are derived from the monthly service, Emerging Growth.
The newsletter is published once a month, on Fridays, after regular trading hours, but usually while after-hours trading is still open. Each monthly issue provides several "new buys" for subscribers.
The average stock price pop for these new buys from Friday's closing price to Monday's opening price is +3.61%
The average stock price gain for these new buys from Monday's opening price to Monday's High price of the day, is +2.81%
Since Labor day weekend, the S&P 500 is down 0.86%
Since Labor day weekend, the average gain for the new buys provided in the September and October newsletters, is +11.41%.
In these two newsletters, there were a total of 15 new buys. Of 15 new buys, 10 are profitable and 5 show losses. Again, if you bought all fifteen in equal amounts your net gain since Labor day is +11.41%.
Finally, Navellier has a new book out, "The Little Book That Makes You Rich: A Proven Market-Beating Formula for Growth Investing," in which he describes in the simplest of terms how he picks these stocks.
Someday maybe I'll write a book about how I trade these services for fun and profit. But right now, I'm having too much fun taking these services to the bank.
