    I have just subscribed to the ASR CFD report and have found it's somtimes brings your attention to particular stocks that you may not normally be looking at.
    Ultimately your decision though, whether to buy into their suggestions.
    Are you trading from the east or west coast ?
    Cheers

    Most stock newsletters are not worth subscribing to.
    If you do know how to read annual reports and company financial statements
    and company research data under comsec you dont need these so called experts to tell you what to do.

    If you don't, you should be teaching yourself in these arts anyway. Blindly following some stock newsletter without knowing the stuff yourself is dangerous and you put your capital at risk.

    And by the time the newsletters go to press it's old news and they would have scope up the good offer and you become a sucker. Most of the stocks they pick I suspect don't even beat the index return :D

    Those who know how to pick good stocks don't need to sell newsletters they can make million out of their skills. Do you see people like Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Philip Fisher selling stock newsletters? :D

    Save that extra $500 or $1000 and invest instead :D

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    I am currently...this is my second year of subscription...first year was free ;) wont tell you how...but I decided to pay this year...basically I pay $1000 a year for some stock tips...it brings my attention to some stocks that I most probably wouldn't come across sometimes and gives me info on them. Also gives a good summary of overall market movements for the day, talks about focus stocks,etc...nice little newsletter...but since Ive subscribed this year, all their tips and suggestions have been bad for me. 1 out of 5 may have been reasonable...but all round, crap...I guess it could only be the beginning for this year....but lets see what happens...Goodluck whatever you decide!

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    Before I started trading for real, I took out trials with a few analysis services, including Australian Stock Report. After my trial with ASR ended, they called me to get some feedback and to ask if I'd like to take out a subscription.

    I'd never blindly buy what they're recommending, but rather use these types of services to assist in choosing stocks to investigate further, and make up my own mind. It's always comforting to get some consensus on a stock you've chosen to trade in, especially when you're just starting out.

    The list price for their daily report is $1,490 and the weekly report $890. When they tried to sell it to me I said that I was happy with most of their recommendations, but I had found other services that offered me similar mileage at considerably lower prices. In the end, I was able to get them down to $890 total for an annual subscription to both the daily and weekly report together...

    Another decent report, of which a free three week trial is available, is Huntley's Your Money Weekly and its sister publication Smaller Companies Guide. If you end up subscribing, it's probably not worth getting the posted editions due to the time lag involved in getting them. It's cheaper if you just take the online version; they come as PDF's and you can save/print them if you're like me and can't sit in the smallest room in the house without something interesting to read!

    I agree with Pacer with regard to the Eureka Report; I believe it offers excellent value for money, especially if you're also involved in property or a SMSF. I cannot, however, agree with the suggestion that you abuse the offer of a free trial, as I value the effort these professionals go to in providing a quality product. (I'm not having a go at you pacer, I know it was a joke, but would hate for anyone else to read it and think it might be something worth serious consideration.)

    Other services I've trialled free, but not taken out subscriptions to are:

    Re: Australian Stock Report?

    I am a member, have been for one year. I won't be a member next year for the following reason. Their sales pitch was that they had information on trends hot off the press and that their financial whizz kids would be sms you with top buys every other day. I have had about 10 sms in 10 mths and most were yesterdays news. Example : This week one of their buys is RSP.... I have had it in my watchlist for at least three months and kick myself everytime I look at it. I've got more off this site so save your money and use the web. ;)

    ASR - Australian stock report

    I just signed up for a free trial for ASR. I get delayed reports may be because it is free services. I like their research but not sure, how many people actually prefer them. I don't have the time to do research and analysis so I'm thinking of leaving that to someone like ASR. I wanted to know the following

    Do you guys recommend ASR?
    If not, what are other service providers similar to ASR who's has greater success rate.

    I searched previous thread and read bad reviews about them (ASR). Not sure if anything has changed recently.

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    I have tried a few free trials from time to time and have never bothered actually signing up. Some of them may have done very well during bull markets but in this climate its a different ball game.

    Next time some one trys to sell you their product tell them you'll buy AFTER they have provided say 3 continuous months of daily or weekly past issues from a period say at least 6 months ago for nothing.

    Then do your own research based on their historical tips and see what percentage of success you may have had were you a subscriber back then.

    I don't think they would take up your offer, too hard and likely to embarrass them.

    Without being too cynical and in some fairness to these services, who is actually making GOOD money out of the market at the moment. There's not many stocks on an upward trend.

    I'd say some of the traders might be doing okay.

    Might be time to buy BHP again. It has gone from $25 to $29 back down to 25-26 back uo to 30-31 and back down again all in the space of 3-4 weeks or so. The trick is getting in and out at the right times to scalp that profit.

    This is not to suggest you buy and or sell BHP but only to indicate its previous price movements and the opportunities that were there for some to take.. Usual story DYOR....

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    Hi,

    I have a 2 year subscription to the following ASR reports:

    CFD Report
    Forex Report
    Traders Report
    Investors Report.

    I used it all last year and had about a 58%/42% profit loss ratio. That's out of about 40-50 recommended trades.

    Due to work commitments I can no longer take advantage of this report.

    If your interested in taking over my subscription, please email me at

    lee_amanda02@yahoo.com.au.

    thanks.

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    i see people questioning ASR peformance above, but their historic peformance is stated transparently on their website, for all their portfolios.

    The CFD one looks very good, and goes goes back to 2004.

    I paste it here below..

    CFD Report
    Return Since Inception (November 2004) 502.3%
    Average Annual Compound Return 56.7%
    Annual Average Compound Return (if reset) 103.3%
    Annual Average Compound Return S&P ASX 200 1.5%
    Best Month's Return (October 2005) 66.4%
    Rolling 1-year return 41.7%
    Worst Month's Return (April 2005) - 13.4%
    Rolling 1-year return S&P ASX 200 - 40.5%

    it excludes brokerage, but even so, looks really good.. so what am i missing?

    im currently running on the free trial, and im not going to be rushed into any subscrition, but.. whats wrong with those returns?

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    Yes it is good for learning. maybe use it for a year or so then try and branch out yourself.

    Some tips are winners and some losers. Market has gone up 24% + so you don't really need anyones advice to make money.

    They do practise money managment which is good.

    Their CFD report is the most useful but also most expensive.

    I still have a subscription to it. If you want to know more PM me.

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    Thanks Nero64, i cant pm as ive not got enough posts...

    Hi all, im still trying to understand the apathy towards the ASR (CFD) subscriptions, when they have such a great return on their CFD reccomendations over an extended period of time. if they can acheive these returns with there very tight capital management (no more than 2% risked per trade) why wouldnt one take this up ( unless you think you can beat their returns, which a novice like me couldnt)



    any further specific feedback really appreciated.. Is there something im missing? Eddy

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    its fine, but they have not made many trades, more altering of open positions, and specifically staying out of the market. they seemed to accurately predict S&P200 price movements in the days i was watching, but as a result did not not trade. so the trial is inconclusive.

    look and feel of there site is ok, lots of great training material, i like there capital/risk management policy but the trial is obviously not long enough for me to verify if they pick more winnners than loosers.

    im hoping to find someone with a subscription, who has actually followed the trade reccomendations for the CFDs to see it they are getting anything like the 100% PA returns published on their website. its one thing to have a subscription, and another thing entirely to rigorously follow all the (CFD) reccomendations with your own money. Are the dissatisfied subscribers those who only partially or half arsedly followed the trades? i dont know - hoping to find some people here who genuinely used or using them (ASR) for a extended period who can compare peformance to there published stats...

    Re: Anyone subscribe to Australian Stock Report?

    I've subscribed for the last few years (CFD and Investors report) haven't as yet had time to trade all of their suggestions only selective with mixed results but I think there reports are great education wise and they do encourage good money management.I have deactivated the report a couple of times when I haven't being able to trade which is good.Also their SMS support trades are somewhat inconsistant in quantity. I am looking at trading all their suggestions as of the first of next month, I will update my progress:)

    Hi waza1960
    You mentioned you were going to trade all ASR suggestions from 1st July. If you're happy to share, I'm interested to know how you've gone and what your experiences have been?
    Thanks
