Street Smart Report by Sy Harding provides an outstanding newsletter and free daily blog. Harding’s Seasonal Timing Strategy (STS) – a modified, back tested “sell in May and go away” brings a level of safety to investments I had been missing by getting investors out of equities during unfavorable times. It is not enough to have a disciplined buy strategy. As recent events have shown, an effective, disciplined selling plan is necessary to preserve capital. Harding’s STS proves “buy and hold” is dead. His blog provides detailed information about market moving events missing from other sources.

I started with Street Smart in March of this year 2009. It is a good educational tool, and utilizes some sound reasoning as they apply charting and technical analysis to their recommendations. However, they got out way early and misread the rally off of the March low, miscalled and took a short position and so not only did I miss a big part of the rally but was hedging with shorts as the rally continued. At least a cash position would have preserved some of my gains. I guess the best way to describe performance is to look at how they have managed one of the biggest bear rallies in several generations…the most aggressive portfolio is down 4.4% while the S&P is up 2.6% at this writing. Getting a good run today from short positions so I may be early in my criticism. I would give them a try. They have a monthly subscription option so you can get started for small $$$. I like the writing style and have learned a lot.

I subscribed to this service in March 2009, thinking he could help lead me out of the wilderness, but instead he kept promoting the bear aspects of the market as it relentlessly climbed out of its hole and he missed the biggest rebound of the decade. I only picked a few of his recommendation so I did not lose too much money but I’m not going to resubscribe (if ever) until the market seems more consistent. His, more or less, inflexible market timing style did not serve him well in 2009. However, his free newsletter has some good insights and a little more depth than the news channels so it’s a good read.

Update from June 2009 posting. They continue to get their downside positions absolutely wrong. Shorting and especially 2x leveraged shorts (TWM, SDS) have been extremely bad calls. They are best on calling Gold rallies (GLD, GDX) consistently good there. They have an inflexible timing methodology and it hasn’t served them well over the last 18 months. YTD they are down probably 15%+ on the aggressive timing strategy. Their seasonal timing strategy has a much better record but trades twice a year so it’s hard to spend for an annual newsletter with two trades or so per year to wait around for. I got a special deal to renew or I might have dumped them. I’m down 18% YTD on my most aggressive portfolio following their “advice”.

SSReport has almost completely missed out on the last four year (2009-2013) rally. You will not expose your investments to as much risk following this newsletter’s formula( basically sell in May and go away), but then again, you have zero risk staying in all cash. So, the advice is virtually worthless. On the positive side, a good read, but i can get that from Forbes or Money Magazine. Check CXO for an analysis of this newsletter’s performance- very poor.
