Recommended Stocks to Buy Now From AAP – Performance Analysis 6 Months Later:
Earlier this year, I reviewed Action Alerts Plus and took note of the thirteen securities listed on their “Stocks to Buy Now” report (dated 2/26/16). Being that Action Alerts Plus enacts more of a long-term, buy-and-hold approach, I figured it was a good idea to look back on what Jim Cramer was suggesting six months earlier.
8/26/16 just recently passed and here are your theoretical portfolio results if you took the advice given on 2/26/16 and bought 100 shares of each stock:
|Ticker||PPS on 2/26||PPS on 8/26||Profit/Loss Per Share||Shares Purchased||Total Profit/Loss|
Potential Portfolio Results By Receiving the Expert Guidance of Jim Cramer:
Speaking hypothetically, if you joined Action Alerts Plus in February of this year and purchased 100 shares of each stock marked as a “Stock to Buy Now”, you would have captured nearly $11,000 in a six-month span. That may seem like an outstanding result until you consider that it would’ve taken a $200,000+ investment in order to do so. That’s roughly a 5% return – putting the performance almost exactly on pace for the S&P 500’s average annual return of 10%.
Luckily for Action Alerts Plus subscribers, that 10% average return is largely due to dividends, which weren’t even considered in my analysis – only capital gains. In other words, these picks given back in February are certainly on pace to beat the market.
