Free Access To Our Market-Beating Portfolio

In 1993, we started a real-money portfolio using the most promising academic research to show that a consistent investment approach could be followed without a significant time commitment. That portfolio has since far outpaced the broader market.

Our ultimate goal with the Shadow Stock Portfolio is to provide you with the best of both worlds — investment ideas and investment education.

AAII membership comes with free access to our Shadow Stock Portfolio as well as the criteria we use to select or remove stocks from it. You'll also receive Shadow Stock Ideas - stocks that pass the rigorous screening process for portfolio inclusion.

AAII's Core Investing Beliefs

With the right education and information, most individual investors are fully capable of becoming effective managers of their own assets.

No special talent is required to become a successful investor, only a bit of dedication and access to effective investment education that provides a framework for intelligent investment decisions.

The individual investor has a distinct set of advantages that can help you outpace the market and most brokers, investment banks and institutional investors.

By following the guidelines below, you can improve the likelihood of achieving good investment returns:

  • Large institutions cannot effectively invest in the stocks of smaller companies or in less liquid issues, and these are the stocks that have performed best over the long run.
  • Consider your time horizon when making investments.
  • Don't buy common stocks with money you feel you will need in less than five years.
  • Don't invest all of your wealth in the stock market.
  • Maintain a diversified portfolio, with no fewer than 10 stocks in it.
  • Consider transaction costs when selecting your investment approach.
  • No single method of evaluating investment opportunities has proven to be successful all of the time
  • Don't move a substantial portion of your wealth into or out of the market at one time.
  • Adjust your portfolio periodically to ensure optimal asset allocations.
  • Don't make emotional investment decisions.
  • Planning is the secret to success, and starting early is key

We know AAII will be the best investment you make and we're excited to help you achieve your financial goals!
