I subscribed to Quantum Growth for 1 month beginning on 9/21/08. As part of the subscription, I received the “my 5 best Quantum Growth Doublers”, as described below: “Get full details on my 5 best Quantum Growth doublers. I will tell you the trades that I expect to double the quickest in this incredible market rebound. I will send you the next 4 issues of Quantum Growth, all for a 66% savings. But you have to be signed up by Monday.” To this date, 1/29/09, four of the 5 doublers have never risen in price above the price they were… Read more »

Steven, I don’t usually work with those signals — probably farley can better answer that if he chooses to, I would just caution you not to buy this for the dividend, at least not yet, since there’s every chance that the dividend policy will change significantly in 2009 if not before. It will be hard and expensive for them to remain a mortgage REIT after buying a bank, so they’ll probably change structure and that new structure may allow them to reinvest some earnings into growth rather than pay outsize dividends. My guess (and that’s all it is) is that… Read more »

Excellent call on this rare pattern. In this case, it looks like the long term trend line is the ruling factor when the stock bumped its head at $12.50. You may want to play this on the breakout of the trendline.

DYODD on these top matrix bank stocks. I do not have time today to look at anything:

PNC, NTRS, STT, HBC, ABNYY, BBD, JPM, USB, WFC, RY

Top movers: NCC, WB, BAC, PNC, WFC, STI

Well put, Farley — this may be one of those times when there begins to be a little more differentiation between pipeline companies. The owners of the storage facilities and big interstate pipelines might conceivably do a bit better than the owners of gathering pipe networks across the gas fields and those who “refine” gas. There is a baseline of gas usage for heating and electricity that I would argue won’t fall too far, but gas is also a huge input in many industries that will be hard hit by recession (chemicals, food processing, fertilizer, many more).

Tried this service for 3 Months. Followed all the buy and sell recommendations. Lost 30%.
Louis’s strategy seems to be
1. Buy a stock,
2. Watch it go down 15-20%,
3. Sell,
4. Go to Step 1.
All of Louis’ “Quantums” were quantum downers.

The review I wrote for Emerging Growth in fact I meant to be for this Letter “Quantum Growth”. The Letter is very pricey, not a bit worth the money paid for it. It is like a monkey throwing the darts. In a good market it is OK’ in a bad market?? I wish I never new about it. It said buy, buy,buy and the stocks kept going down, down , down. I even don’t look at the recommendations anymore. It seems that, when it said buy,buy,buy some big money were selling, one wonders how somebody who supposed to be an… Read more »

I almost feel sorry for the guy because we’re all piling on him, but then he’s the one of the hyperbolic claims in his spam email — I mean hyperbolic even by the standards of the newsletter industry. I learned about him after reading “The little book that makes you rich” and I liked his quantitative approach. So I gave a couple of his services a try in the period April-August. Granted this was a terrible period in the overall market, but he was hyper-bullish throughout. I paper-traded his recommendations and they significantly underperformed the market. And he has the… Read more »

It is a question of philosophy. Navellier’s stock picking essentially works by scanning historic, fundamental data, such as quarterly earnings and revenue growth etc. Problem is, he does not consider technicals at all. For example, is the S&P500 (or the particular stock we’re looking at) in a well defined down trend. He is a perma-bull and his service assumes a bull market, which as we have seen, is not always the case!! So what you find is that his companies are all fundamentally strong, with good potential, but they only work when the market trend is up. In fact in… Read more »

Had this advisory during 1999-2000. Navellier’s advisory then was the MPT Review. It did pretty well of course in 1999 but you could have done the same with an Index fund. During the bubble collapse in 2000 he kept saying to buy and buy tech issues. His saying on the hotline was the “best defense is a good offense.” Yea right. If you would have followed this advice you would have been wiped out. The current high price Navellier newsletters cater to folks with a little money who think they are getting something exclusive not available to the trailer trash… Read more »

I started with Louis Navellier a decade ago and did well in a bull market with Emerging Growth & Blue Chip Growth. About three years ago I decided to trial Quantum Growth and did well enough to subscribe at “only” $2500/year. Not blaming him for the bear or the recession, I continued. To summarize my results, in this rebounding market I have $65,000 in YTD losses and only $9,000 in gains on current positions. He just offered a two-year subscription for something like $3500 (I forgot the amount & deleted the email.) The losses exclude the trade fees, with about… Read more »

I subscribed to this service in Spring 2008 when Louie’s pick did well for me. Obviously, a month’s trial is hit or miss with any newsletter. But, years before I was a successful subscriber to Navellier’s Blue Chip Growth and Emerging Growth. Unfortunately, I bought a two-years half-price subscription to Quantum. Now, granted 2008-2010 have not been stellar year’s for the market. But, 2009 returned about 20% and my portfolio lost about 12%, mostly due to QG picks. In hopes of improvement in his performance (hey, for $2500/year he must know something, right?), I followed him through May 2010, only… Read more »

Thank you, Sara. I’ve been suckered by Stansberry’s letters a number of times. “Buck” may be correct: they all may be fakers.

I have been a Blue Chip subscriber for years. He provides reasonable data which combined with portfolio grader is a good source to begin your own “due diligence”. Can’t blame Louis for organizing data effectively. However, Quantom Growth is a waste of good money IMO. You would due better to take your $5000 and go to Las Vegas.

I’ve tried it a couple times when it was on sale. During Bull periods it outperforms and I made a lot of money following it. During downturns it is terrible. I’ve tried all 4 of his letters with similar results. I keep a subscription to Blue Chip Growth when on sale to have access to Portfolio grader.

Doug, I have subscribed to various Navellier letters over the last few years and I do not recall any difference in access to portfolio grader when subscribed or not. Is there a different version of it available when subscribed?

I am not currently subscribed but have access to the below PG site:

I subscribe to all his letters and they are so far very good both in terms performance results, percentages winners and finding trends. Sometimes a bit slow to sell before things turn, and too many recommentions if you want to invest in the whole portefolio but high mark for keeping his portefollio grader free on his webpage and even free ranking stocks in sectors. In this way you can test him out before subscription. Not many others dare to do this, so it shows his belief in the system.

Highly volatile stocks. A lot of stock recommendations. Some performed incredibly well. Many were up briefly then suddenly down significantly. Those losses were painful. At the end of the day, I did not make money with this service. Too many bad picks mixed in with a few good picks.

I did and promptly requested a refund. Realized he’s more of a trader than an investor and didn’t find it of much value.
