Long-term investing is not an easy path to outperforming the stock market (SPY). On the other hand, most active trading approaches miss some key elements that lead to outperformance. So let’s talk about an approach that is the best of both worlds called “Active Investing”. Read on below for more.
The world moves faster by the day.
Not just technological change… but also the speed at which industry peers are finding ways to beat their competitors. This makes buy-and-hold investing more difficult than ever, as stocks that once looked fundamentally promising can quickly turn sour and become a drain on your portfolio.
This calls each of us to reflect on the virtues of “Active investingwhich results in you accurately and continuously deleting weak files at the earliest possible stage to prevent unnecessary damage.
Note that I make a clear distinction between “Active Investing” and “Active Trading”. This means that this is not a call to become a day trader…or slave to the market gobbling up Red Bull all day while looking at 8 computer screens.
Rather, it’s about proactively making sure you stay in the healthiest stocks to give yourself the best chance of outperforming. That’s because at the end of the day, fundamentals are what really drive stock prices.
Because we are actually buying an ownership interest in a company (not just random statistics or a graph pattern on a screen… but a real living/breathing entity with a clearly definable value).
My purpose for this article is twofold.
First, to convince you that it is in your financial interest to become a more active investor.
Second, to give you free access to a range of tools that provide active investors with a source of profitable choices.
The importance of timeliness
Some investors are more focused on preserving capital. While most have set their sights on surpassing the market.
The only way to accomplish this last task is to have timely supplies. Those who are now ready to rise.
The #1 ingredient of timely stocks is improving fundamentals. That’s because the appeal of those healthier growth profiles is driving investors to bid for stocks.
On the surface, this sounds like an overwhelming task as there are literally thousands of fundamental factors to consider.
Fortunately, StockNews members already know that the POWR Ratings give them a head start on this journey. That’s because this time-tested stock valuation model narrows down to 118 unique factors that have historically pointed to stocks likely to outperform the market.
These impressive profits come from the computers doing the heavy lifting, crunching these numbers on a daily basis to make our lives easier. But there is still 1 problem to solve…
1,300 Buy rated stocks is too much
The POWR Ratings does a phenomenal job scanning over 5,300 stocks to narrow down to the top 25% poised to outperform (A & B rating).
However, that’s still a whopping 1,300 stocks to consider on any given day.
No matter how much you love picking stocks… reviewing 1,300 is still a daunting and unwelcome task.
For this reason, we’ve created several unique portfolio recommendation services to narrow down to the very best stocks.
At this time, we only have a total of 41 active recommendations for our popular portfolio trading services:
- Reitmeister Total Return
- POWR growth
- POWR shares under $10

In fact, 34 of those 41 trades are winners…not easy to do with so much market volatility.
However, it does highlight the benefit of the POWR Ratings system in the hands of experienced investors who manage these newsletter portfolios for the benefit of our clients.
