The SL50 List
We believe that active portfolio management has its place in everyone’s portfolio. If you love stocks and markets, SL50 is for you. We invest our time and money in order to trounce the market averages. Every year, hundreds of stocks appreciate 50% or more. We have identified the characteristics of the biggest movers and created the SL50 list to help us find them and profit.
The SL50 list has consistently spotlighted 50% and 100%+ winners ignored by the mainstream press. Some recent examples of big trends that the SL50 list caught: ASGN +80% in 47 weeks, KORS +81% in 58 weeks, FNGN +128% in 45 weeks, RCPT +110% in 7 weeks, LNKD +98% in 42 weeks, YELP +103% in 25 weeks, MKTG +90% in 20 weeks, DDD +64% in 27 weeks, PRFT +84% in 15 weeks, NUS +103% in 26 weeks, Z +61% in 19 weeks, BITA +110% in 15 weeks, VDSI +49% in 8 weeks and many others in the past two years alone.
The purpose of the SL50 list is to highlight the future market winners before their biggest moves.
The list is designed for long-term trend-followers and it will be updated weekly. Some of the stocks will spend 2-3 weeks on the list; others will stay multiple months; some more than a year.
We promise to offer full transparency and a comprehensive tracking of all stocks that have been on the list. Stock entries and exits trigger at opening prices on Monday morning. We will follow the performance of each stock, the number of consecutive weeks on the list and suggest exit points. The list is interactive and values change during the day. See an example below:
Losing money on certain stocks is inevitable, but we are extremely diligent and consistent about cutting losses.
During market corrections, any list of growth stocks is likely to suffer. The SL50 List is not perfect. It is important to view the list in the context of the overall market environment, which we diligently analyze in our Weekly and Daily Market Reviews. Learn More.

The Model Portfolio is designed for both busy people, who don’t have the time to follow the market every day and active investors, who would like to follow our investing process and profit.
In the model portfolio, we focus on the trends that resonate strongest with us and those in which we understand the catalysts for positive surprises. We personally handpick the best ideas from the SL50 list and other research and present them in an easy to understand way.
Every buy/sell signal is explained in detail and given one day in advance in a post titled “Model Portfolio Update”.
We will hold up to 20 positions, depending on the market conditions and the availability of setups we like. On average, there are between two and ten transactions per month. Everything related to the Long-Term Model Portfolio is diligently tracked on a separate webpage.
The typical position will be allocated about 10% of our capital. We always open with a starting position of 5% of capital. Then we add to it if it goes in our favor to maximize our returns or cut it if it goes against us to limit the damage.
With the Model Portfolio, you will get easy to follow position trades and longer-term investments. Here we hold positions between several weeks to multiple months. In some cases even more than a year. It is quick and practical way to learn how to pick stocks, manage risk, understand catalysts and define the proper position size for each new trade. It is a great educational experience, which is also profitable.
