I have been a loyal IBD subscriber for over 30 years. The iBD system of stock picking, although compelling, is deeply flawed and not worth your while. A simple comparison of the performance of the FFTY etf, which tracks the performance of the ibd 50,to the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq over the last 5 years will show you that it has returned half the appreciation! The quick churning of stocks when they drop 7 or 8% simply does not work. It never worked for William Oneil either. Buy and hold is the only way to beat the casino essence of the market. The investor must act like the casino and take away the clock. They have a biased toward their subscribers to churn the market which is evident by the abundant and nagging borage of endless add from the many discount brokers who will profit from a churning portfolio. The more you churn the faster you burn through your money. That said IBD is a worthwhile source of information and worth the subscription. Because when you are looking to make a good long term investment they do offer some very profitable picks. Their conservative political views can get a bit irritating which have dominated their commentary in the past. If you can cull get away from their market biases and constant pedaling of their cult like loyalty to the William O'Neil system. then the paper will serve you well. Under no circumstances should you subscribe to their myriad of other services which they are really trying to push lately.
