Here is score card for various paid services. I was disapponted after trying for 2 weeks and started due further performance review.

YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION IF YOU WILL PAY FOR THOSE SERVICES.
I think I can do my self a better deal by using my own signals.
The problem with services is you wait for signal and then trade based on what ever is said. ZAKS services seem to be good for bullish market most of the time.

I will love to hear comments from other users - if they have used the ZAKS ULTIMATE SERVICE WITH ABOUT 8 PLUS BUNDELED SERIVES.
THE COST WILL BE OUT OF THE ROOF. IF YOU ADD THE COST OF THE SERVICES - over long haul - only folks who make money are ............

None of the services have a win ration above 60% and more or less did not beat INDEXES - WHAT A PITY.

I joined Zacks in Feb 2009 and I'm a supporter. Your numbers are eye openers for sure. I tried the Ultimate Trader for a 30 day trial in early Aug 2010. Not too many people didn't lose in Aug. I tried it again in Oct and did well. What I gained during the experience is which programs I liked and which I didn't. I'm a yearly subscriber to one program and I will renew. I like the stock picks and what is real important is the daily commentary. The service has also opened up, to me,many new stocks and ETF's that I never new existed especially the short term defensive strategies that are sometimes needed. I thought I knew enough to go it alone but I soon learned I needed help. I have benefited from Zacks. I look at http://www.cxoadvisory.com/gurus/ they rate the big time pickers and I find a super star like Cramer with about a 47% win score. I followed Ken Fisher and believed in his 2008 pick of AIG. Oh how that hurt.

I am glad it is working and that is all it matters.
Which service are you using?

rjm77me, I;m in the old Double Your Money which they changed to Reitmeisters Alert - I'm not even close to doubling but I still like Steve's picks. I got a taste of the Strategic Trader which is now closed down. I can see why they shut it down. I want to keep with survice like Reity's Alert. I feel like superman when the market is going up and I'm doing a lot of my own picks. I need somebody to tell me to slow down or stop.

rjm77me,
I only use Research Wizard with all of the Zacks Dbases, and those you can turn into a money machine. Zacks has a site where they review the performance of their own services: http://www.zacks.com/performance/.
When I saw that site, I found it quite revealing. It shows the performance of Double your Money (~zero since inception).

John,
If you use Wizard - you should apply for VIP status and will stop paying for service.
Read the roles for VIP
