Investor Advisory Service Continues to Beat Overall Market

Newsletter Provides Superior Long-Term Performance for Individual Investors

Cambridge, MA - The Investor Advisory Service, a monthly investment newsletter published by ICLUBcentral Inc., has continued its superior performance record, matching or besting the major market indexes for the past five and ten years.

According to the Hulbert Financial Digest, an investor following the Investor Advisory Service's picks could have earned a 14.0% total return over the five years ended December 31, 2007, beating the Standard & Poor's 500 Index return of 12.9% and matching the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000 Index return of 14.0%.

Over the previous ten years, the IAS earned 10.5%, handily outperforming both the 6.3% return of the DJ Wilshire 5000 Index and the 5.9% return of the S&P 500.

The IAS's longer-term performance continues to be exemplary. Since December 31, 1995, the IAS has earned a 12.7% total return, compared to 9.4% for the DJ Wilshire 5000 Index (comparable figures for the S&P 500 Index are not provided by Hulbert for this period).

"Independent investors who seek guidance for their portfolios are continuing to discover that the Investor Advisory Service is a trusted source to identify high-quality, long-term oriented stock picks," said Editor-in-Chief Douglas Gerlach. "Our subscribers know that the research provided by our analysts in each issue can be put to immediate, practical use, and our latest performance figures demonstrate the value of our service."

The Investor Advisory Service owes its success to the team of Chartered Financial Analysts of Seger-Elvekrog, an independent money management firm. Seger-Elvekrog provides the in-depth stock analysis and market commentary for the IAS, following a disciplined, long-term growth stock investing approach. Each month, IAS presents three recommended stocks for subscribers to consider. Each pick is accompanied by a thorough assessment of the company's fundamentals and an evaluation of the projected risk and return for the stock over the next five years.

"Seger-Elvekrog prides itself on its own unbiased stock selection processes and analyses," added Seger-Elvekrog Chairman Maury Elvekrog. "Free from the conflicts of interest inherent in much of the research provided by traditional Wall Street firms, the recommendations presented in the Investor Advisory Service are an example of the value that true buy-side analysis can provide to individual investors."

Available in both print ($399/year) and online ($299/year) editions, the Investor Advisory Service is published monthly, with additional alerts and updates provided on a regular basis for subscribers. For more information or to subscribe, visit
