I have only invested in this crazy market less than a year. I got in at the worse possible time last may or june, just in time for well u know the rest of that story. I have only subscribed to the famous gumshoe (which by the way is awesome and full of information) and just recently 1st of May subscribed to The Street Authority’s Stock of the month by Amy Calistri’s. I know its very early but right now I’m very impressed with Amy’s pix and articles and also results of the 1st 6 pix. I paid 59.99 for… Read more »

A couple of weeks ago the subscription price was $49.99/year. Apparently as the market advances, the subscription price advances too. Currently it’s $19.95/quarter. If the newsletter were a stock, it has a 63% gain. This is not to disparage Amy, just an observation. Other newsletters, worthwhile or no, cost more.

Been looking over these stocks and their charts so far: DEO-Summer party play. Noticed all the prices on alcohol have been going-up lately, but that could be due to taxes. Stock had a recent reversal of fortune, 10-day currently crossing above the 20-day. 50-day will be the next overhead resistance level to watch. IAF-Australian closed-end fund. Aussie currency has been having a field day recently. 10-day crossed above the 20-day and the stock took-off when the price crossed over the 50-day. It IS over the recommended buy level, but I wouldn’t have any problem purchasing this one here. PIO-Hmm, global… Read more »

Hi : Over the course of time I have subscribed to two of the newsletters listed on the right ( highest ranked 7 and 12 ). I just renewed with #12 for 1/2 off the regular price . I just read these newsletters to see what they have to say . One of the stock picks from a prievious time mentioned in newsletter #12 I bought with money from my discount brokerage account I’ve made more than $100.00 on the stock . As I type this review the stock is up while the market slides . Also the stock is… Read more »

Hi, I can’t even remember why I decided to order Amy’s first Stock of the Month newsletter – Maybe because she wrote about being a professional poker player in Texas, and I felt like gambling 5.00 bucks a month on her advice. Anyway, she earned my subscription fee just on her suggestion of PIO, the water ETF, up 37.6%. DEO is up 31%. She has a very intertaining writing style. Of her seven picks so far, only the August is down-3.3%. The other 6 doing very well. As a small time, very non professional investor following Amy’s advice, I’d say… Read more »

subscribed start of August 2009 Nice easy to read newsletter The two picks i’ve received are Pagg which still hasn’t reached Its buy under recommendation and is down from entry with very low volume for an etf the other NGZ another etf is up half a buck but still under its buy under recommendation also low volume. She was doing well with her earlier picks but the market was going up, she hasn’t out performed the market but hasn’t lost money. All her picks have been long on American exchanges so far.

I joined the service at the beginning of June. I actually compare the performance of the stocks I bought to the S&P 500. Here are the numbers: MRX – 18.3% compared to 15.6% S&P 500 OLN – 42.5% compared to 15.6% S&P 500 VOD – 22.8% compared to 15.6% S&P 500 PAGG – 0.9% compared to 2.9% S&P 500 NGZ – 5.4% compared to 1.4% S&P 500 This does not include 35.7% in DEO, 40% in PIO and 17% in CPSI (I was late to buy them) plus Not bad at all I would say. Of course more time needed… Read more »

So far so good. I subscribed right when she began the service. I set up a spreadsheet to track all the picks and “funded” it with the same $50,000 that Amy is investing. I’ve made every trade she recommends, exactly as she says, and so far I’m impressed. As of the closing prices today my account is up to $55,821.44, including dividends (but not interest on the cash). From 5/15/09 to 9/24/09 that’s an annualized return of 32.19%. Only one pick (PAGG) is down slightly from the purchase price. All the others are showing gains in the hundreds of dollars.… Read more »

I just recently started taking this newsletter. Before I did I tracked her picks since she started this in April. Boy I wish I had been onboard in April. Her DEO pick that she bought in on at either 43 or 45 dollars is now close to 66 dollars. Her IAF which she pruchased at approximately 7 dollars closed yesterday at $11.89. Her VOD that was purchased somewhere in the middle teens is now $22.99. I think the proof is in the pudding!! I went and invested in two of the stock she advise a first time invester to invest… Read more »

I just love Amy’s hat. I started in July and very pleased with all her picks. So the is the street authority.

they have upped her real money portfolio from $50,000 to $100,000

I honestly cant wait to see what the stock of the month is.
It has been fun and rewarding.

AMY IS OFFERING HER NEWSLETTER, TODAY ONLY, FOR FREE TO NEW SUBSCRIBERS. ALTHOUGH IN THE FIRST EMAIL AFTER SIGN-UP, THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL YOU A SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICE ANYWAY!
LET’S SEE, HOW LONG “FREE” WILL LAST

I subscribed when the newsletter was announced. (I’m a sucker for newsletter pitches.) This is the best I’ve ever subscribed to. Consistent–100%–winners. Have never seen anything like it. To come up with her winners, Amy does good research, and then she adds a solid dosage of common sense. I’ll hold onto this one.

I don’t subscribe but I did have a question. It looks like Amy has sell targets. Does she adhere to them or are they flexible? I am not a big fan of sell targets. You might dump stocks that become more than 2 baggers.

let us note that the market as a whole went up substantially from its March 2009 low. Any company which has low debt and generating cash flow has gone up. If I had bought at the market bottom in March, my portfolio would have shown significant gains. The issue is why have more investors not bought into the market? Basically , because the economy has shown no improvement and credit markets have continued to remain frozen. The performance of the real economy has been at odds with the stock market. Is this stock market rise sustainable? Or has the market… Read more »

I am not a subscriber. I noticed that this newsletter started
in March 2009 and it does not have even a single loser. Well,
anyone could have done stock picking from march 2009 till now
and might have seemed like a genius. What is Amy telling
right now ? Is she speculating a market crash or does she
think this market rally still has legs.

I have subscribed to Amy’s newsletter for about six weeks. It has to work, her theory makes so much sense. But so far every stock is going down and I am chalking it up to the market. PIO/85shares@$16.69 down6.8%,IAF/200shares@$10.24 down9.02%,SBH/50 shares@$7.97 down 7.21%, and ECH/9 shares $53.10 down 8.28%. I’ve lost $400. already. With the market falling like this I think I should have cut my losses last week and rebought these stocks when these stocks starta to pick up. Any suggestions?

I haven’t read anything of Amy Calistri’s so this is absolutely not a comment on her letter or advice. However I see a lot of people listing the very high batting average of her picks in 2009, and this brings me to my point – notice how many newsletters today are suddenly posting their “complete track records” for 2009, and they all look awesomely good? I’ve noticed a huge number of stock advisors are now tripping all over themselves to offer detailed performance stats for last year, while in former years attempting to pry this formation out of them was… Read more »

This is one of my favorite newsletters. I like the stock-a-month approach, and I especially like her reasoning. She is very good at updating and making interim suggestions, and at ranking her own choices on a monthly basis.

I like newsletters that are clear and succinct, and I feel that the Stock-of-the-Month newsletter is a very smart and balanced set of picks. I am extremely satisfied.

Now that I’ve been a subscriber for a while, the fantastic performance touted for 2009 is considerably diminished this year. Comparing Amy’s performance to the S&P doesn’t impress nearly as much as Street Authority’s rantings. It is cheap though and interesting reading but is heavily used to promote other (pricier) services. Definitely (along with Leeb) fills up my e-mail every day.

2010 New Rules My Opinion: With Congress messing with financial reform, Cap & Trade, restructering of banks, the market is going to remain volitile. The institutional investors are manipulatging the market at the expense of the small investor. They are pretty much day trading. You may like a specific stock which has great technicals trending up then an instatutional investor with pension funds shorts the stock and boom he wins you lose. I alwas try to find smaller out of the way companies that don’t have the volume quite yet, and only need to worry about other hunters.

Stock of the month is exactly what it sounds like. Amy recommends one stock each month. Her picks do ok. As of July 2010 her real money portfolio which started April of 2009 has gone from $100,000 to $116,700. It breaks down to a 1.1% gain per month or 13.2% per year since inception. The site lists an honest track record of all purchases including closed purchases. She keeps her winners and closes any losers so her current portfolio looks good. I do not like the listing of annualized returns wich makes trades that took place over a few weeks… Read more »

I have gotten Stock of the Month for almost a year. I have profited on every recommendation Amy has made and that I have purchased. As recently as Thursday I sold HOGS and SBH which I purchased and sold at her recomendation and made over $4,000.
As far as I am concerned….Amy knows what she is doing!!

I started my subscription in October 2009. I did well on a few of her early picks and still hold one. I started learning something about Technical Analysis and have sort of hung back on some of timing. I really like her discussion every month and I actually bought my first closed-end fund through her education. I also get the Daily Paycheck. It’s way more expensive and is now really working hard to get dividend issues worthy of suggesting in the current environment. Some have EXTREMELY low liquidity. I really haven’t bought anything and one (FAX) is a duplicate from… Read more »

I have subscribed for about 6 months and the picks have been very good to excellent. It looks like the time horizon on these investments is at least 6 months. Her picks have solid fundementals and generally good but not perfect entry points. If your time horizon is over 12 months, entry timing does not matter much. Buy all her picks but feel free to use your own judgement about entry and exit points (and how you play them) if you are not happy with her recommendations (which are usually good). I did my own DD and a technical analysis… Read more »

You asked for an update. I have been investing with amy for about 18 months and in that time we have only had one loser. Every other pick i have sold for 25%-45% gain. Some much more in the bull market. I also wanted to note that when Travis reviewed the the stock of the month news letter about a year ago her pick was IBM. he thought it was boring and so did I. Well today it is up 37%. she usually holds for 6 months to a year and has a way picking one stock that will beat… Read more »

Hi, guys! Enjoyed reading the various posts about Amy’s newsletter. I recently subscribed, and all seems impressive from what I have read. I would be curious to learn from some of you as to what you did right after you subscribed… Did you buy all of Amy’s picks at the current price, did you wait until the next pick came out, and kept buying each month unit you have all 12 stocks, did you “pick and choose”, etc… Some of the picks have a big gain, and as good as they are, there may not be a big updide anymore…… Read more »

Stock of the Month by Amy Calistri’
Came across a couple articles on the web that Amy purchased 75 shares of Hormel on the morning of October 4th and 45 shares of Nike on the afternoon of October 31st. Both stocks have been affected by the market correction. Hormel is up 13.93% YTD, and Nike is up 6.78 YTD.

Suscribed 2 years and quit. Tried to follow her to a tee but her entry points always lower, so I don’t think the average investor is likely to exactly replicate. Her buy/sell spreadsheet doesn’t update immediately so you have to wait to see her entry pricepoint the following month. If she has a loser she sometimes doubles or triples down and then sells on small price jumps. She easily kept 25%-35% of her 100K portfolio in a cash position to do just that. Easy read, good ideas, but she was perhaps spread too thin with a couple newsletters. Got tired… Read more »

I subscribed in December 2010 to Stock of the Month,and have been getting Ami’s picks ever since. so far I am really pleased with her advice as I have made money on all but one pick. I like that she tells you when she will execute her order and for how many shares. she also gives a target price. the fact that this is a real money portfolio and you can review this at any time is comforting. I usually watch the charting (prefer candlesticks) and several indicators to determine if I want to buy when she suggests or at… Read more »
