I had this service for about 2 1/2 months from May – July 2009. It focuses on notifying you when an executive within a firm is buying a large amount of stock as an indicator that the stock will go up within a few weeks after that. They suggest certain stock prices to buy and then keep you updated when to sell. But it only comes out once a week and by the time you receive it the news is stale and you have already missed the upside move, so you aren’t in a position to buy at the bottom,… Read more »

Trial subscriber – couldn’t justify the price. I regard Alex Green as among the best, analytically, and for honesty, among the newsletter pundits, and he appears to state his opinions well. That said, perhaps this trader only works for the hair trigger traders who sit and watch their email screens and trade immediately. For me, I couldn’t get execution anywhere near his buy prices, nor could I make any money with his picks. I did see some of the stock picks go up – mostly immediately on day his email was posted. But it happened so suddenly, it suggested someone… Read more »

Todd Skousen, the insider’s son, said he knew of a “Secret Hobby” practiced by all the top corporate executives. “They trade on where they think their own company’s stock is headed.” Stanley Kroll spent a lot of time teaching us, the various ways to enter a system for the first time. Make no mistake; the Insiders Alert is a system. It follows the actions of corporate insiders who trade for there own account to make money. Insiders may sell for a number of reasons, but they only buy when they expect the price to go up. We can follow just… Read more »

I have my position on now. Lets see what we have learned from the corporate insiders who trade, to make money in there own companies shares? Of the eight recommendations I have received so far. One has been stopped out at a loss. One is down about -10%, another -2% from where I got in. One is about even. The remaining four stocks have gains of +4%, +7%, and +11%. These trades were put on the day recommended, or at a limit price suggested by our alerts. One thing I like about this alert system is they explain what to… Read more »

The sixty-day money back guarantee is long enough to get your full position on, and see profits and learn what to expect. It is long enough to show you how simple it is to use this technique. It turns out the Oxford club uses close-only stops on their portfolios but the alert services, because they are so short-term use regular stops. Which pretty much means they can be automated. Which is a real time saver. Because I reinvest dividends always. I see a bunch of fractional shares showing up in my account when the stops are hit. The methodology with… Read more »

The idea that executives on Wall street have nothing better to do with there lives than to buy shares in there own companies at the proper times appears to be working out very well. They see an event coming, maybe a few times in their working career, they get a pile of liquid capital together and they just buy stock in there own firm. Luckily for us, they report their actions to the SEC where our scouts pick up the trail. Of course you have to know which people to watch. And the times and situations have to be right… Read more »

One thing has the ring of truth. “They trade on where they think their own company’s stock is headed.” Currently the portfolio has seven positions. When we get stopped out of one we enter another. You cannot pyramid stocks, because the capital is not free to use for pyramiding until it has been liquidated. You must use capital to enter each trade. Additional increases in holding while profitable cannot be called recommended trades, which are usually given at a specific price. The Insider alerts generally trades in the largest companies many are components of the S&P 500. The size of… Read more »

I have been unable to remove the unedited copy of my previously posted December 12, 2010 review, which follows my February 15, 2011 review above. Sorry about that.

Insiders have been leading us to stocks that perform well in the space of a short-term call option. It is one thing to know that a stock is going up, take a position, and wait for events to unfold. But the insiders stocks come with call options suggestions attached. Which means not only do we expect the stock to move, but when insiders buy stocks in there own companies, with there own money, for there own accounts, we expect to see them make a move soon. If they do not, we get out and into something else that will. Recently… Read more »

I currently do not subscribe to the ‘Insider Alert’ but will most likely do so. I am currently a member of the Oxford Club, have been for about 4 years. On most positions, they use a 25% trailing stop. I use 15%. I have subscribed to more then a few advisories in the past but for me, the Oxford Club has been the best. I do get tired of every month being flooded with ads for their other services but that is a small price to pay. Thanks for posting a review on this service, it re-enforces my decision.

I think we give back too much at the top. With that being said, far away trailing stops have kept us in some great stocks. There are double-digit gains on half of the insider positions. Two stocks have gains near 20%, and one is over 35%. These would have shown up higher, but the gains are diluted because of the addition of new capital. The gains reported here do not represent the original positions, but my actual results, which are less. Insiders appear more reliable than analysts as guides to stock performance. Once fully diversified, and taking new trades on… Read more »

Strange things here. My review of April 29th did not show. When the revised post of May 3rd was posted the April post was not there. Now it is. One of these posts should be removed.

This letter is based on The Peter Lynch philosophy of insider trading: > Insiders might sell their shares for many reasons, but they buy for only one: they think the price will rise.” Insiders sell their own companies’ stock for thousands of reasons. They might need a big hunk of cash for something personal like a new house or yacht, or they could paying off a mistress, or just plain giving it away. Sometimes insiders sell as part of a planned selling program, which allows them to sell stock in stages instead of selling all at one price. They could… Read more »

The Insider Alert has a policy of staying full invested. Currently the trailing stops have us unvested in just about everything. I am sitting with cash. So, do Trailing Stops Really Work? One of the most controversial aspects of The Insider Alert’s investment policy is trailing stops. Flying by the seat of your pants, rarely leads to superior investment performance. Trailing stops in this case seem to be protecting our profits, and in all cases our trading capital. Finance professors – researched the performance of money managers who oversee pension funds, endowments and high-net-worth accounts. Institutional managers who fared best… Read more »

Not only were we stopped out of everything; we had stops take us out of some the same day that we got in. But like all markets each trough leads to another crest. That is why we use stops. This just shows the importance of putting stops on as soon as we get the fills. The insiders know what to buy but they are by no means masters of technical analysis. That is not why we follow them. It is for some short term, unknown, unexpected event that may not have happened yet. Being on the trail of insiders negates… Read more »

Lets see what we have learned following the corporate insiders who trade, to make money in there own companies shares, with their own money? All of our positions are in the money. The Insider Alert continues to buy leading financially sound companies, growing and marked by significant insider buying. We don’t need to predict how or when this situation in Europe will all play out. The companies we own are set to report sharply higher earnings in the weeks ahead, and the executives who run them have been eagerly buying there own shares. That’s what is important. No one knows… Read more »

November was marked by an exposé on “Congress – Trading stock on inside information,” shown on the “60 minutes TV news and advertisements show,” see: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7388130n This led to a congressional hearing on “Congressional insider trading information,” see: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/InsiderTra. The loophole in which members of congress and legislative staffers are immune from enforcement of insider-trading laws, is because the delayed reporting of securities transactions by congress, defeats, obstructs, and impairs its use as timely evidence. Insider-trading cases are hard to prove, because the trades must be tightly linked to the events or information on which they are allegedly based. Trades… Read more »

The Insider Alert as it is today is all text. That is to say it totally ignores the right (creative) side of the brain. Many brokerage accounts have evolved to feature charts and diagrams showing the effect on stock prices after Insiders buy. But Alex’s Insider Alert remains mute to the visual recognition side of the human brain. No video’s, charts, graphs, or links. The only enhancement I have seen is a lame attempt at a print view button. Nothing that appeals to the right hemisphere of the brain. It has all of the sophistication necessary for an Apple II,… Read more »

In the beginning I speculated that when building a new portfolio would it be better to put an equal amount of funds into each recommendation right off, or just take each now trade one at a time. Last summer when the US dollar’s creditworthiness was downgraded. We were stopped out of everything simultaneously. The course that naturally evolved getting back in, and has worked well, was to take each trade as it came up one at a time. Investing about 15% of the portfolio in each stock until we had our full position on. That is to say the size… Read more »

All of the insider stocks show profits now. The longest holding, 164 days the shortest 16 days. The biggest winner 86 days. Some are stocks that have been insider trades in the past, others are new. We bailed out of one major fast food chain that had previously shown no evidence of insider buying competence, has recently traded below its original, stop out price. No visual aids or improvements to the text only website. The insider alert has added a forum of its own at the Oxford Club, which is why I have not reported here in a few months.
