Who is

Alpha Picks for?

Alpha Picks is designed for buy & hold investors looking for capital appreciation.

Alpha Picks does not require frequent trading.

The Alpha Picks portfolio is not designed to generate dividend income.

Alpha Picks covers multiple sectors. This is because the best opportunities rotate between different sectors. For example, we added a home builder stock to the Alpha Picks portfolio in March 2023, and that stock appreciated 100% in the following quarter.

What should you expect

Our goal is for the Alpha Picks overall portfolio performance to significantly outperform the market. (So far, it’s done just that.)

We expect some of the picks to massively outperform the market, and some to underperform. Winners dominate the performance of the portfolio as they become larger positions.

Alpha Picks should be evaluated on the performance of the entire portfolio, rather than single picks.

Don't be surprised if picks are clustered in a single sector like tech or energy for a while. It could just mean that this sector is experiencing the greatest improvement in fundamentals and forward valuation.
