I signed up for VectorVest ("VV") in April of 2010. It has caused me to completely revamp (sell and buy) my portfolio. VV is one of the few analysis programs that has the courage (maybe read this "lack of conflicts of interest")to issue a large percentage of "SELL" reccommendations. That is right. VV also has BUYS. One can still use bottom up analysis to choose securities and then test them with VV. Or you can just use VV. AND, you can actually talk with knowledgeable people at VV on the phone. The VV people do not "suggest" stocks. . . . but the VV program does by indicating "immediately" WHEN and WHAT to BUY and SELL on over 8000 stocks! I prefer to HOLD as I earn a living in the commercial real estate business. VV has been helpful to me in beating the S&P 500. . . since April of 2010. It is now December 2010. I still need a good portfolio tracker as I use MS Investor-modified and I am concerned that it will no longer be supported. Morningstar works ok but not as well as MS Investor for a portfolio manager. Thanks Wayne for a well written and researched article. Do another one soon.

Great article.

I felt Marilyn Cohen gave an excelent report on
Bonds at the recent AAII meeting in Walthem, Mass.
Bonds are a dull subject and she gave a vibrant
discussion. She seems very knowledgable about
the subject. I would recommend her.
