Hulbert's Honor Roll

Independently Top Ranked

The Hulbert Financial Digest is the watch dog for the newsletter industry. For the last four consecutive years, SoundAdvice has made the Hulbert Honor Roll for its top performance in both up and down markets since March 2000. Hulbert says: “It shouldn’t be that difficult...But it is.

This in turn suggests that making it into the Honor Roll really means something...”

Diffusing the Bulls and Bears

If the Supercycles identified by our Sound Advice Risk Indicator are the solemn, inexorable seasons that roll across the market’s landscape, business cycles are the highly visible, sometimes serene but frequently blustery fronts and storms that we actually perceive as weather. The Risk Indicator has given us a reliable tool to determine the investment season in the stock market.
