Stock Portfolios to Create Wealth

Our Starting Out Portfolios that are designed for anyone starting out to build wealth. They start with $10,000 in capital each year and are designed to help you learn how to invest and trade without risking substantial capital. Access to these portfolios is free to anyone and we hope you take advantage of the opportunity to learn how to invest and trade, as well as make some money. Keep in mind that only Premium Members receive email notification of trades. The trades for the Starting Portfolio are posted at the end of the day after the market closes. Complete results for 2006 Starting Out Portfolios are available here.


As you learn more about investing and trading and grow your portfolios, you can move up to our Premium Portfolios. Starting out with $100,000 in capital these portfolios are designed to guide you how to create substantial wealth using more advanced investment, trading and portfolio management techniques.  These portfolios are available for a free 4 week trial and then by subscription ($59.95 per quarter, $199.95 annually, a 20% savings over the quarterly rate).  As a Premium Member you have access to:

  • our detailed watch list;
  • the reason we are making our trades to help you learn why we are making each trade;
  • our weekly Market Commentary, a newsletter on key aspects of the market and its expected moves;
  • immediate email notification of any trades or stop adjustments; and
  • any special situation opportunities that may present themselves.

The benefits of our approach are:

  • The site is suitable for people who cannot or do not want to watch the market every day. We are not day traders.
  • You see every trade in our demonstration portfolios, win or lose, not just some of the trades like other sites. Every trade is documented with the date, the price (set to the high of the day to help cover slippage and commissions), the target exit price and the initial stop. Premium members get to see the rational for the trade.
  • Premium members receive email notification of any trade, stop adjustment or other key event information. All trades are posted on the site shortly after the end of the day.
  • We have investment ideas for bull and bear markets, meaning we don't just go long all the time.
  • We try to teach you how to invest successfully, not just follow someone's recommendations.
  • We blend the strengths of fundamental and technical methods to successfully beat the market.

I expect the market to move lower over the next several weeks. If the opportunity presents itself, I will look to go short. Otherwise, will remain in cash and have money ready to buy some good companies at lower prices when this pull back hits support and starts to move up.
