Trade History

This list contains all the historical investments we have made and exited in the Value Stock Guide Premium portfolio since the inception of the service in early 2011. The current recommendations and holdings are viewable by the current members inside the member area and will not be listed on this page until after we exit the investment. For your convenience and to give you a more complete insight into the investment process, I am making available the actual recommendations for these past holdings and they are linked for each stock in the table below. You can see the most uptodate overall portfolio return, that reflects the performance of the current holdings as well, at the top of any page on the site.

This list will be updated approximately at least a week after we exit any of the current holdings. I reserve the right to keep some of the recommendations private for the members if I remain interested in the stock in the near term.
