Hulbert: Investor Advisory Service Performance No. 3 Over Past 15 Years
In his August issue of Hulbert Financial Digest, editor Mark Hulbert reported that the Investor Advisory Service is in third place out of 69 newsletters he tracks for gains over the trailing 15 years. For the trailing 15 years through July 31, the service gained 11.4% a year, versus 5.3% for the Wilshire 5000. From Jan. 1, 1996, to July 31, the service's portfolio gained an annual 12.4%, compared with 8% for the Wilshire 5000.
IAS has made the Hulbert Financial Digest's prestigious Investment Newsletter Honor Roll for four years in a row. The Newsletter Honor Roll acknowledges newsletters noted for above-average performance in both up and down markets. The 2013 Investment Newsletter Honor Roll includes 14 newsletters that have exceeded the market since March 31, 2000, demonstrating high performance and consistency during all phases of the market's cycles. Hulbert says just 17% of newsletters his publication monitors made it onto the honor roll, which is a significant achievement for IAS. As Hulbert writes: "IAS "handily beats the Wilshire 5000 on a risk-adjusted basis."
