TheStreet.com - 468x60 - Action Alerts Plus

Time for another Jim Cramer Action Alerts update. It’s been a couple weeks since my last post, but the portfolio performance just keeps going up. The initial investment of $300 to join the program was well worth it. Since joining I have bought and sold every time I received one of Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts emails, saying to do so. My portfolio is now worth $62,141.35 and up an amazing $4,894.60 (8.55%). I always like to buy some stocks on my own (which I track in separate portfolios), but Jim Cramer’s picks are almost always winners…. I’m not always so lucky with my own picks 🙁 It’s been just under nine months since joining Action Alerts Plus and its now up almost $5k! Every post I have made so far has been showing solid gains and I’m not gaining any compensation from these, nor on referrals (I wish he did have an affiliate program, I praise him so much!)… but if you are looking to start investing, Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts are the way to go!

  2. My brother and I are both going to put around 2-3k in the stock market and do a little contest on who earns more. I think I will sign up for Action Alert Plus 😀

    1. Never heard of the guy but maybe that's cos I'm not in the US. Every few years a new prophet comes along and makes a string of good tips, gets a huge following, and soon his prophecies become self fulfilling… until it all comes crashing down!

      Don't just blinding put your money cos he says so. Understand the company you are investing in and do it cos YOU think it's a good idea.

  3. The S&P 500 typically performs better than 8%. Why not put your money in an index fund (plus the $300 you gave to Cramer) and make even more with less work?

    9 months at your basis of IVV, for instance equals a 14% gain.

    I'm not knocking you. If the goal is to learn, good deal. If the goal is to make money however, I don't think this is the best strategy.

    1. Ture, but there can also be other factors in this as well:

      1.) If you are looking to learn and have some fun with the stock market. You would prefer buying stocks and having a big portfolio like this, through Cramer.

      2.) Many of Cramer's picks are up 20-45%. Depending on your allocation of each stock recommendation, you could be making a lot more than 8%. I usually purchase between $1500-$3000 each time he recommends a buy.

    2. 14% are for people who are content with just being average. We want more, more, more ..! muhahaha

    3. S & P typically does 8%? If I invested in it 10 years ago I would be down! Maybe 8% over 30 years but most of us don't want to wait that long. Index funds are worthless.

  4. Zac,

    Since i follow the markets daily on my blog, just wanted to throw some stats your way:

    Year to date % Change

    Dow Jones Industrials: +9.7

    NYSE Composite: +9.9

    AMEX Composite: +16.0

    Nasdaq Composite: +8.2

    Russell 2000: +8.3

    S&P 500: +8.3

  5. Just wanted to say…”Cramer is Great!”

    I see his show every day on the big screens at work with no volume on and I still learn something new (ofcourse I watch it at home too).

    I am def. going to check out this Action Alerts Plus.

  6. do you still take advantage of the Action Alerts PLUS? If so, how has it been working out for you? I just started getting into investing and have thought about signing up for his alerts.

  7. I'm glad I found this blog. I was looking for someone reviewing action alerts plus. I'm glad it's working out for you. I just finished reading Stay Mad For Life, well worth a read. Thanks again.

    John

  8. More proof positive in Action Alerts Plus. Although I do not always agree with Cramer, in fact disagree often this service is a powerful tool for learning. More than that as you have proved if you follow the trades of the portfolio exactly this is one of the best ways to make money in the market. It is well worth a trial and definitely worth the subscription if you can afford to make large enough trades.
