I have subscribed to emerging growth for a couple of years now. This newsletter is on the pricey side, about 1k per year. Unless the market drops as it has done and like most newsletter writers, they drop their price substantially, I assume to raise capital to invest new money in the down market. Anyway, I do okay with this one, not great, but I only invest money in the top 10 stocks. This is another newsletter that has you invest in 50+ stocks. It takes a substantial amount of money to spread it around that much. And I assume… Read more »

In Oct. 2007 his picks were almost universally wrong. Maybe I just caught him at the market peak. SYNA, VDSI, VIVO, etc., they are small caps and when the market turns south you get slaughtered.

I subscribed to this service for 6 months in early 2007. Seems Louis is good at finding these emerging stocks, but 95% of the time will hold them too long and watch his paper profits drift away. His message is always “Buy, Buy, Buy”. He never tells you to sell – until the stocks are dropping off the chart.
To use any of his services you must be willing to pick your own exit points.

I still subscribe to his Blue Chip service. Just tune out his constant “Rah-Rah”, and use your common sense on when to sell.

There are many, and lots of different opinions about what might be “best” — I can’t suggest specific newsletters, but these are the ones that readers have reviewed that have at least some ETF or fund portfolios:

I’ve followed Navallier since the very early 1980s, when he published MPT Review. I liked that format better because he actually gave you a summary of 100s of stocks and saved you a lot of time on research. Honestly, I’ve made a lot of money investing on Louis’s picks. The best one ever was Key Energy Group back in ’99, picked it up for under $3 and got out in less than 9 months at over $13. There have been many others. But I had it with him last Fall when he kept telling everyone to hold onto Graham and… Read more »

This guy is a big scale charlatan. He has no shame to announce that a stock will double, let’s say by Friday, like it was the case for GTE last year. Well, he spelled dis-as-ter for this gullible subscriber. I won’t follow him anywhere again. I don’t even want to hear his name.

I subscribed to Emerging Growth for about one year, a few years ago. Navellier touts a huge return investing in these growth stocks, but I didn’t get that kind of return. One thing that I didn’t like is there were just too many stock picks. So you were left to pick as many of them as you could afford. Unfortunately, if you picked the losers, you ended up with very poor performance. While I was subscribing he had some home-runs like Hanson, QSII, and a couple others. But he also had some complete wipe-outs, like FPP. He is very good… Read more »

Navellier is a former computer programmer, who now uses his own program to pick stocks for his subscribers to his various newsletters. I’ve subscribed to 2 of them, including Emerging Growth. One of his weaknesses is that he will trumpet his correct picks incessantly, but completely sidestep his wrong ones. Another weakness is that he’ll recommend stocks with Market Caps in the $100-350 Million range, thinly traded, and these are very dangerous stocks to buy, because they are so thinly traded, and such small companies. A 3rd – and critical – weakness is that he frequently does not own the… Read more »

Of the twelve stocks I have bought in the few months I have followed this service,
nine have gained substantially, two have fallen badly, and one is somewhat down.
The net result to date is over a 30 per cent gain on the initial costs, less, of course,
the cost of receikving the Emerging Growth letter.

what would be the equivalent etfs?

I am always puzzled by the advice to ‘pay off’ the home mortgage. It is the best tax shelter avilable to the man on the street.

These days it is possible to have your investment grow over 7% in a tax sheltered account and still participate in the stock market. Yes, there are fees, and yes it is an annuity account. Would it not be great if Vanguard would let you aggressively and give you a 7% guarantee? Would anyone care to pay a fee?

This newsletter and Navallier himself have given me more loses than my favorite baseball team, The Kansas City Royals. At least the Royals try. You can do better by running any cheezy stock screen. Maybe thats what Navallier does. He is a marketing guru so I after the 1,000 email he wore me down, caught me on a good day and I subscribed for a year. Horrible decision. It was almost comical some of his selections. He would always claim victory once the stock went up a point or two for a brief time then once the trash he picked… Read more »

If I have cancer I would not wait for a magic bullet to be discovered. A good start would be to subscribe to Health Science Institute (HSI)which entitles subscribers to archive reports. The advisory Board compose of brilliant researching type doctors who practice alternative medicine. For example HSI had identified a prominent doctor in Vietnam Dr. Kha Hoang and his family of doctors who are successfully treating prostate cancer with herb called crinum latifolium. German clinics are successfully treating cancer with various alternative means. The difficulty is traveling far and staying in Germany for 3 to 4 weeks. In contrast… Read more »

Does anyone have any more recent updates on this one?
Just got my first email from this fellow, and he’s offering a 3 month trial for $99 now. Perhaps it’s worth taking a flier for that small amount. Your comments will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you.

I like his regular newsletter at $99. Recommended a lot of good stocks like SQM and others. No way will I pay $1,000 for a freaking newsletter.

OK, here’s my take on stock news letters. I subscribe to Blue Chip Growth which is only moderately successful. I get bombarded by Louis Navellier with offers for his other ridiculously overpriced news letters. Occasionally, out of curiosity I subscribe to them for a short while, assuring I get all my money back when I cancel. Now it gets interesting. In January of this year Navellier was touting ten stocks in Emerging Growth that were supposed to double during the year. I subscribed, got my money refunded a short time later and invested a small amount in each of the… Read more »
