ICLUBcentral has recently unveiled a new professional-level tool for individual investors seeking to expand their stock research capabilities by offering qualitative evaluations of fundamental investing metrics. EquityResearchService.com is a new product to complement our existing stock-analysis tools, offering versatile new ways to analyze stocks in an easily navigable format.
EquityResearchService.com provides, for example, a summary of items for investors to check for an individual stock study. This Web-based tool is highly customizable, enabling investors to dig into company data and metrics, from fundamentals to key financial ratios, technical information and industry and peer comparisons of stocks.
Users may analyze stock with EquityResearchService.com's various tools and then easily create and print PDF reports to share on each company in question. This new tool is designed for use in combination with our other tools, including Toolkit 6 and StockCentral. We're shaping EquityResearchService.com to be user-driven, and we plan to incorporate user feedback in this dynamic product.
For a limited time we're offering EquityResearchService.com at a low introductory subscription price of $119.99. If you're curious, try it for two weeks, free of charge. Existing subscribers to ICLUBcentral products may simply enter their ICLUBcentral user name and start a free trial without entering any other information.

Investor Advisory Service Makes Hulbert Financial Digest Honor Roll Five Years Running
Investor Advisory Service has made the 2014 Hulbert Financial Digest Honor Roll for the fifth consecutive year. This is a distinction given to financial investment newsletters that consistently outperform the market in all conditions, with an eye toward generating positive long-term results. Mark Hulbert since 1980 has tracked more than 160 different financial newsletters, and names to the honor roll those whose recommendations have steered investors in the right direction during up and down markets.
Some newsletters promise very lofty returns, which is especially common when the market is booming. But getting positive results over the long haul as the market goes through ups and downs takes a special approach, and that is what Hulbert honors.
IAS earned kudos for consistently recommending stocks that are good picks in all types of conditions. Using a formula based on sound, long-term investing principles, the editors of IAS in each issue recommend three stocks, along with expert analysis of economic and market trends, explained in clear terms.

What's On Doug's Bookshelf?
ICLUBcentral's own Doug Gerlach criss-crosses the country each year visiting investment clubs nationwide and speaking at high-profile investing events. Along the way he manages to read a lot of interesting books about finance and investing. In 2013, Gerlach read a total of 265 books on a variety of topics including Wall Street, investing and global financial trends.
During a recent Lunchtime Learning webinar, Gerlach provided an interesting snapshot and review of John Allen Paulos' book "A Mathematician Reads the Newspaper," building on theories from an earlier book, "Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and its Consequences." In his book looking at newspaper stories and math concepts, Paulos examines stories that appeared in newspapers and points out some of the glaring problems in them caused by inadvertent distortion, "false precision" in reporting and examples of assumptions and conclusions that have no solid basis. "You can't simplify the market on a daily basis," Gerlach notes, illuminating why newspapers aren't the best guide for daily investing decisions.
