"I wish I could see the industry rankings online and then how the individual companies rank within the group. Also, would like to see big block sales or buys. Finally. I wish you could pull up your positions and see how their performance was on a Dailey, weekly, quarterly and ytd basis,"

"I've been an IBD subscriber a number of times, the most recent running till approx 7/2020. Last year, after a 3 hr trip and an overnight stay to listen an IBD Seminar, I purchased a 3 month trial IBD offered. Though personal commitments made immediate usage impractical, the IBD order said they'd accept an immediate purchase with an open start date so I made the $ 99 purchase. Several months later, I found an IBD charge on my credit card for an automatic subscription extension. Never having activated or the scrip in the first place, I asked that the charge to be removed which was reluctantly done. Several months later, when I called to activate the subscription, IBD refused to provide it. Their peculiar behavior and refusal to provide the service they'd been paid for greatly diminished my confidence in their integrity and value as an honest and reliable supplier, caused me to ask them to cancel the approx 10 month balance of my IBD delivery and online subscription and return the balance of my prepayment. Sorry to say, I can't recommend IBD any more. Jack Napor 412 722 09011"

"I've happily utilized IBD inputs for years, but the recent downpour of pop ups in IBD Digital, disturbs me no end. When hunting for a quick bit of data for a decision, pot ups trying to sell something keep coming at me from all directions, distracting and destroying the track of your search."

"Two issues: 1. Buying breakouts does not work in all markets. See the relative strength of FFTY to VTI which was strong in 2017, had no outperformance during in 2018, and suffered during the 4Q 2018 selloff. Also, BOUT performs similarly. A different strategy should be considered during sideways and bear markets and IBD seems to push the same approach in all markets even though the data (again, look to relative performance of FFTY) does not support it. 2. As a paid subscriber I HATE having advertisements thrown in my face all over the screen, including pop-ups."

"Leader board just loses your money. You cut your losses at 7% and then the stock goes back up the next day."

"The print version was fantastic, and I was a fan since 1992. Your App for Android is horrible. You website is horrible. I have paid for the website for years, but it still never works. You somehow think that I do not pay, so I have to logout, and log back in all the time. You have my old login information and of all the times I have called customer support (over 12 times) no one seems to be able to delete the login that is unpaid. No one listens, and no one gets anything done."

"Lately I have not been able to get the headings on front page IBD,like Market,Stocks,Research etc. Instead the account page comes up asking me to pay for year's subscription to Leaderboards Market Smith. I am just beginning the trial. I don't know if I want a year. Signed, Disgusted"

"I have been disillusioned by IBD. At first some of the stock suggestions were good; now only the premium customers get good advice. I am reeling from yet another dog pick on your part, Autodesk. It has been recommended again and again, as it tanks more and more past negative 16 percent for me. You continue to push it as a good stock. It is pretty clear that Wall Street is an insiders' game, but I kind of hoped IBD would have helped the small investor. Not kept him hoodwinked, giving out the real good information only to premium customers."

"I keep having delivery problems with my paper. I have reported these to IBD many, many times, but I either don't get my paper at all, or this past Sunday, I received only 1/2 of the paper (Section A). Please help to get this resolved. Dave Surut 801-428-7480"

"I used both SwingTrader as well as IBD Digital. SwingTrader was horrendous, less than 10 recommendations a month and well over 50% were losers - I could do that myself and not pay for an additional "service". IBD Digital wasn't much better - I signed up to receive a concise informative daily newsletter on important market news. Instead, I received countless marketing emails and the actual "IBD Digital" emails conveyed very little important information and made you click links to read further into articles. Again, I wanted a CONCISE daily email on important market news: I don't want to click links, I don't want to read extensive articles, give me the meat and potatoes so I can hit the trading block. Robinhood offers "Robinhood Snacks" FOR FREE which is essentially what IBD Digital claims to be except it actually delivers. Before I began actively trading I had read and been told by many IBD was the gold standard but my experience has been anything but. Do better."

"I have with IBD for almost 20 years. Previously, I used to get daily print of IBD. From last few years, it was changed to weekly. And now it comes almost 4-5 days after the week is over and so we miss timely information. Website still gives daily access but printed copy are so easy to read at any time. IBD has cut too many corners to save the cost at the customer’s expense. Didn’t agree with this approach. Hope IBD will focus again on printed copy in a timely way. . Thank You"

"I love your publication but when it arrives on Wednesday or Thursday there's something not right. If my local grocer gets his by 8am Saturday morning, I am very disappointed that my issue arrives so late. I am seriously considering cancelling my subscription and just buying it retail. I hope this helps."

"My IBD arrives by mail Monday evening and no longer on Sat. home delivery. To say that is timely is not correct. Too much of the data is already OLD. Any hope for home delivery again? Don't tell me to go online. I want the printed paper. Thank you. Joseph Leonard"

"I have been a long time subscriber but become weary of being "nickle and dime-ed" and with the constant pop up boxes for added and premium services. Now, most recently upon temporarily "holding " my paper delivery for 1 week while on vacation,I apparently did not have access to the on line services unless i paid extra for "Digital Access". My subscription was for both paper and online and in this advanced technological age IBD is unable to hold the paper service without permitting access to ones paid on line service."

"The CFA analysis of using hindsight to predict market direction has no statitical support. IBD claims that past performance will reliably offer an edge in the market. IBD does give a reliable list of companies whose share price is changing but one must be careful of buying anything on their site as they trick buyers into expensive subscriptions."

"Website is glitchy and keeps logging me out. Leaderboard subscription no longer includes features that were available before. It is clear that you have become more about making money than providing an outstanding user experience."
