"I most value the unique RSM scores (rankings) as a great intermediate trend measure.  I don’t want to be in a fund that does not an RSM above the money markets.  Thanks for continuing to make your services better and better – now 3 times a week and online."

"For years, I chased the 'hottest' newsletter and/or fund which just caused me to move money around excessively and waste money...Once I subscribed, however, I've followed your recommendations religiously and have been very pleased with the results."

"I subscribed for years during the late 90s and made a lot of money just moving my 401k in and out of sectors. But I made a huge mistake in thinking you were wrong to advise selling Select Electronics when it was $122 or so. I didn't sell, it went up to $130, but then I got distracted and it plunged to $64 before I got rid of it. I learned my lesson. I pay you for advice and I now make sure I take it. Thanks."

"Your newsletter is light years the best in its overcrowded field - and not only in results but in clarity, prudence, calmness, and overall responsibility, such as adding a hotline."

"I have been with you since early 1994. Yours is the most effective newsletter I receive. Your philosophy and portfolio structures most match my own thoughts about investing in today's investment climate. In my opinion, little needs to be changed. You have done a great job throughout the 10+ years of my association with you. Great work! I am confident you'll remain at the top of my list of indispensible investment information sources and portfolio management services. "
