Subscriber Testimonials

  • An admitted cynic, it's obviously very high praise when he says he likes StockTrends because of its "simplicity, utility, openness, [and] honesty," and in addition to having "no hidden agenda" is "understandably documented [and] historically verifiable." And, he adds, "It lets me see a lot of things without doing a lot of work." Globe and Mail

    Paul W., Subscriber

  • I am just writing to tell you of my appreciation of your service! It makes so much sense to me. You seem to be an oasis of stability and sensibility in a stockmarket jungle.

    Adrian S., Subscriber

  • I have had the good fortune to be reasonably successful and enjoy the investment process. Your process would be recommended for both experts and those who are new to investing.

    Frank I., Subscriber
  • I've followed your recommendations since reading your columns in the Globe & Mail, and finding they published Stock Trends arrows in their financial listings. I do find them a guide to the general market and what I should be avoiding for declining chart trends.
    Has probably saved me the subscription by not rushing into hot stocks!

    Anthony D., Subscriber
  • Thank you for your excellent work and kind approach to your customers.

    Odette C., Subscriber

  • I very much like the systematic approach to analyzing stock data, it fits my approach.

    Subscriber
  • I use Stock Trends to help direct my stock picks. Also, following the advice of Stock Trends I have religiously used stop-loss orders and have avoided hanging on to losing stocks for emotional reasons.

    John B., Subscriber
  • Just thought I'd call to thank you, Skot. Stock Trends Weekly Reporter helped pay for my daughter's education!

    Peter H., Subscriber

  • Stock Trends analysis quantifies nicely the movement of individual stocks. I’ve found that if the technicals are out of synch with fundamental analysis, it is a wake-up call to make a decision. The Stock Trends Bull/Bear Ratio is useful in identifying major market bottoms and tops. It has always presented a good buying or selling opportunity.

    Charles G., Subscriber
  • I've followed a number of Stock Trends picks, and the methodology is solid.

    Doug B., Subscriber

  • I am fascinated with your service and methodology - it is very impressive. [...] Over the years I have concluded that there are many ways to approach stock investing, but once one has chosen a path, one is better off sticking to it.

    Bob E., Subscriber

  • Your report is an impressive, excellent tool and I have recommmended it to friends.

    Colin E., Subscriber

  • I want to thank you for posting such an excellent guide to technical analysis on the web. You have provided a great service to all of us novice investors.

    Michael C., Stock Trends user
  • There is a lot to be gained from comparing trends of how individual stocks are doing within a sector, as well as how the sector is performing relative to the broad market.

    Dudley R., Subscriber

  • I find your website and research very helpful in my stock trading. I have subscribed to several related services in the past and none present their work with “just the facts” as you. Please keep up the great work so that I can continue to learn! 

    Bryan E., Subscriber
  • Hence, anyone who had followed the "Stock Trends" line should have sold their Bre-X shares and, with the windfall, paid for a lifetime subscription to The Globe and Mail and more. Talk about return on investment!

    Muni P., Subscriber

  • You have created and maintained an amazing, highly educational program and I am grateful for your part in getting our retirement funds to the good place they are.

    Karin M., Subscriber
  • I am something of a momentum investor. I find Stock Trends useful as I can look at my portfolio as a “watch list” and quickly see where trends are declining in strength or reversing, so it is particularly useful as a tool in portfolio management regarding sales.

    William C., Subscriber
  • Stock Trends information is part of the base information I review before making a trade.

    Subscriber
  • Stock Trends Weekly Reporter is an easy way to pick up equities that represent an upward trend.
