Stock of the Day’s One-Year Anniversary Review

by Louis Navellier | September 11, 2012 5:36 pm

Time certainly flies — this week marks the one-year anniversary of Stock of the Day! For those of you who have been with me since I launched the Stock of the Day last September — thank you.

For those of you who aren’t as familiar with it, but would like clear and actionable daily stock advice, you can try it out by downloading the free Stock of the Day app for your Apple device, e-reader or Android phone here[1].   Or, if you’re not quite on the app bandwagon yet, you can access the full archive on this website[2].

Of course, what good is a stock-picking feature if we don’t have the performance data to back it up? So, as we ring in the first full year of Stock of the Day (and the 150th entry since I added it to the Navellier Growth home page), I want to look back on the highlights (and lowlights) of this feature and show you just how valuable it can be.

Biggest Winners

It’s comes as no surprise, but of the 48 stocks that have appreciated in the double digits since their Stock of the Day entry, the majority were A- and B-rated. Here were three of my biggest winners:

Biggest Losers

Of the 23 stocks that have plunged at least 10% since I featured them on Stock of the Day, 19 were C-, D- or F-rated stocks. If you took my advice at the time, you have saved yourself a lot of stress, avoiding plays like:

The past 150 Stocks of the Day have shown that it pays to run any potential buys through my Portfolio Grader tool. The average A- or B-rated stock has gained 5.3% in 16 weeks—compared with a 2.7% return on C-rated stocks and a 0.6% loss on D- and F-rated stocks.  By comparison, the Dow has gained just 3.7% over that time.

Features like Stock of the Day are what I live for—delivering timely and helpful stock advice based on fundamental analysis. If you have been with me for a while, I hope the past year has been as eye opening for you as it has for me, and I look forward to continuing Stock of the Day in the year to come!
