The free service is fine, the paid service that is another story. I cancelled and i asked for a refund, which they did provide but after 3 emails. There are two services I like here; one is suprisingly free and i say suprisingly because they offer really good advice when it comes to ETF’s. The service is run by Ulli Niemann . It is discussed in this thread https://www.stockgumshoe.com/reviews/no-load-mutual-fundetf-tracker/ I find it very informative and am still suprised such good data is going for free. There are host of other shoddy newsletters that charge a fortune and provide 90% less… Read more »

I was a club member 1000 years ago in Denver, too young and dumb to apply myself. I now need to learn how companies are cooking their books by learning solid fundamentals from cash flow analysis, etc. Will AAII show me the way?

Today I reviewed the “non-profit” status of AAII on Guidestar.org and noted that they consistently pay their officers a good 40 to 50% of revenue while other expenses (advertising, mailings, etc) account for most of the rest of expense leading to negative profit. So it makes me wonder if a company that seems to be consistently in the red while spending 90% of it’s income on officer salaries and advertising/mailings/etc. really has our interests at heart. Or, is it simply a way to provide basic investment info (that is available at no cost elsewhere on the web) while making healthy… Read more »

I always thought they sounded good, then I subscribed only to find out the info I wanted upped the price. Maybe I misread something, but I cancelled because it is deceiving to find out it’s not what you thought you purchased. Some day I may give them a try again.

I was probably a little harsh with my ratings since I don’t spend a lot of time with the newsletter . I’m a lifetime member of AAII and do not regret paying for it. In general AAII offers a lot of interesting resources.

Have found their stock screens to be of value when my own nuance is added.

This is the single best value I have found in 50 years of investing because it is based on a consistent, transparent methodology. Definitely for the long term investor. Organization is not-for-profit. Monthly magazine (no ads) keeps up with recent academic and industry research. Has been around for over 20 years and I believe has 170,000 subscribers. You may not always agree with them, but their integrity is unquestionable. I have purchase subscriptions for my kids and sister. They may not read the AAII Journal, but they can’t say they didn’t have the opportunity. Very inexpensive and great value. Website… Read more »

AAII Performance Ratings for over 50 different stock strategies by various authors (newsletter and otherwise) and other criteria. Go to: http://aaii.com/stockscreens/performance.cfm While even a blind pig finds a truffle now and then, the best way to evaluate newsletters is their performance over time. The AAII people take what the newsletter writers indicate are their criteria for picking stocks and compile the actual performace, based on close of business of the stocks as of Friday every week. This is the only FREE site I know of which gives unbiased data since 1/1/98, year by year and cumulative. It also gives info… Read more »

Pigs actually have poor sight. And find food with olfactory guidance.

Any blind pig can find a truffle. Snoutless pig, not so well.
(yes, aware ‘snoutless’ was not a word. Is now …)
