Without drawing this out into a long piece, we wanted to briefly discuss some very important points.
If you have someone handling your investments, you had better damn well make sure they are following someone who knows what's going on. Remember, ALL financial advisers are salemens. They are NOT analysts. They are NOT researcher. And they are NOT investment strategists.
They ARE salesmen. It's as simple as that. As a result, they focus on sales and administrative issues.
They rely on others to help them make investment decisions that will impact your returns.
So who might they follow?
If they work for a wire house, they are likely to follow their firm's research analysts, economists, etc. By now, you should realize the uselessness of Wall Street research.
If they work for an independent shop like LPL or Wachovia, lord only knows where they are getting their information. There are many jackels out there who talk a good line but that's where their skills end.
But one this is for certain. All financial advisers, stock brokers, money managers or whatever you want to call them are in the business of sales and moving money around.
That is NOT investing.
But you are paying them a fee regardless how they perform. That sounds like a damn good business to be in.
The bottom line is this. If you have your investments with someone, some firm or some fund, you had better make sure they are patched into our premium institutional research.
Otherwise, don't be surprised when you lose your ass.
Remember, we hold the leading track record in the world. And we have backed this claim with $100,000.
NO ONE can match our record.
In the past, we have not given any advice with regards to where you should put your money. We have received a huge number of requests to manage money over the past few years, many from our readers. This is something we might consider in the future.
But until that time, we have one piece of advice.
If you have entrusted your hard-earned cash and retirement funds to a financial professional, an investment fund or money manager, you had better make sure they are clients of AVA Investment Analytics.
Otherwise, we advise you to move your account to someone who is wise enough to get our research.
Or else manage your investments on your own.
Armed with our research, we have no doubt that you will be much better off.
