LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), a digital media company that provides authoritative stock market analysis, investing education and research tools, today announced that its premium products, SwingTrader and Leaderboard, are dramatically outperforming the S&P 500. They are also exhibiting outstanding growth in subscriptions.
“Millions of Americans have banked their financial future on the stock market, so periods of turmoil like we are currently experiencing are incredibly stressful,” said Jerry Ferrara, President of IBD. ”SwingTrader and Leaderboard both use our time-tested, proprietary CAN SLIM Investing System®; they are driven by data, not opinions, and are ideally suited to help investors successfully navigate the market and respond to persistently changing conditions.”
Unlike other swing trade products, SwingTrader combines fundamental analysis with technical analysis to increase the potential for success as subscribers leverage short term trends. It is based on IBD’s proprietary CAN SLIM Investing System, which identifies the seven common characteristics that separate the best performing stocks from the average stocks. Most trades will have a goal of about 5% to 10% on the upside and limit risk on the downside with a stop loss around 3%.
The SwingTrader product has historically performed very well and has yielded particularly strong returns in 2020. As of June 30, SwingTrader was up 48.93% versus -4.04% for the S&P 500 year-to-date. Additionally, subscriptions have taken off as investors look to take advantage of any market opportunities in the current environment. SwingTrader subscriptions are up 185% year-to-date.
Leaderboard combines powerful investing tools—technical and fundamental data, computer algorithms and human insight—into one streamlined experience to help investors at every level. Like SwingTrader, it leverages the CAN SLIM Investing System. Rather than focusing on short-term gains however, Leaderboard assists with long-term strategies, providing instant access to profiles of leading stocks, trading plans, market analysis, and one-on-one coaching.
As investors seek ways to make the market work for their overall investment goals, they’ve turned to Leaderboard to help them safeguard or grow their assets as well as minimize losses. Year-to-date, Leaderboard has outperformed the S&P 500, with Leaderboard up 17.72% compared to the S&P 500’s -4.04%. Additionally, subscriptions of the popular product are up more than 30% year-to-date.
SwingTrader and Leaderboard are just two of the compelling products IBD offers investors. To learn more about the other educational resources, unique market insights, and data-driven analysis IBD has to offer, please visit www.investors.com.
