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:

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.

    This is a great post. The information that Jason Bond provides is amazing, actually, I’m using this system and I couldn’t be more satisfied about the product, it’s profitable, it’s simple, it’s professional, etc etc. Very recommended for those who love trading and the opportunity that the market bring to us and that provides us a better life.
