Where We Stand This Week

What a week!

So much happened for me this week including my series of live education sessions for my new Insider’s Edge product here at Traders Agency that I’ll review in a moment.

And this week, we have our three new Watch List Stocks that I am reviewing today for you in a moment. And note that next week, I’ll have three new stocks for the Watch List.

But to start off my discussion with you today, I want to thank so many of you for attending and participating in my three educational sessions that I did explaining the power of insider buying of their own company stocks.

You were among thousands upon thousands that took the time to get very valuable analysis and the history of company management and directors that put their own money down to buy stocks in their own companies.

This is a very charged research tool that I’ve been using for many years that is a cornerstone of my Surge Stock Indicator (SSI) system that I write about inside my Stock Surge Daily.

I have found that management and board members known as insiders that buy and own stock in their own companies work to identify stocks that will perform better over time.

This tracking of insider buying works for identifying surging stocks in the shorter-term – and it works to identify longer-term successful stocks. 

And insider-owned companies continue to provide major upside in the stock market. And the proof is found in the Nasdaq US Insider Sentiment Index. This index done by Nasdaq tracks companies with identified larger-scale insider ownership.

The insider index has returned 623.16% since it commenced in April 2005 to now. And that equates to an annual equivalent return of 12.97%.

Those are big proof numbers about the power of tracking and investing with insider buyers.

If you didn’t get to attend my three sessions this week on insider buying – the replay will be available for just a few more days.

Here is the special link for Stock Surge Daily subscribers to make sure that you can watch my insider trading session on Insider Edge.
