Zacks Surprise Trader

Currently on a trial basis. Cost is $995. NOT RECOMMENDED.

I checked the past historical record posted by Zacks and checked a recent “closing price” and found it incorrect based on what they say is the calculation. I then went to the next one and did the same and found it incorrect also. They sent an email back admitting the mistake and making the corrections. I went to a third one in the past and thought that might be incorrect too (that would be 3 for 3) and they didn’t respond so I have no idea if that was an error or not.

I received today a BUY signal by email and found something interesting. When I went to purchase it, the stock had already gone up a $1.00. I felt I was pretty quick on the trigger so I checked and found that the price quoted was almost 10 minutes prior to when the email was sent. True, the purchase price is the average of their starting price and the closing price but the starting price is half the equation and we users can’t get that price sometimes unless the price falls during the day. Nice head start. I wonder why the price was exactly the price of when the email was sent (just prior to pushing the send button).

There is no help in when to purchase simply stating that you should use your own system for an entry price during the next 24 hours. Thus, your price and returns could be vastly different.

Returns do not could costs of trading and for a lot of trading can add up and take away from the small returns.

You are supposed to invest equally in each stock but have no way of knowing how many recommendations will be at any one time so it is IMPOSSIBLE to equally purchase each stock. They assume you always have an equal share to purchase and state if you don’t then your returns could be impacted.

The person who runs the service never seems to own any of his own recommendations but I don’t know if that is due to regulations or not.

Way too much of these kind of thoughts for $1,000 a year.

Good luck to you all.
