How to Beat the S&P 500 Index by Four Folds; Home Loan Servicing Solutions, Catamaran Corp, Las Vegas Sands, Chas. Schwab

(Austin, Texas). First of all, the headline of this article is not a typographical error and is fully doable by any investor. You do not have to have millions of dollars to invest with a hedge fund. You just need to have discipline, be market savvy and someone to show you the right stocks to invest in. A friend used to say that if you know these tips, why don't you invest in 'em. The reply was how do you know that we do not accomplish these returns. We are simply sharing the knowledge with others. The steps are as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Avoid your emotions and hot tips from your friends. Do your homework and study the stock that you are buying. You are investing in a company, and buying a part of that company. You are not gambling. There is a huge difference between a casino and the stock market.

  2. Treat your money with respect. You have worked hard for your money, protect it. The stock market shows no mercy toward anyone. It is a cruel environment. If you do your homework, you are on par with the so called “big boys.”

  3. Use research that is done by others. Do not be greedy. We, at, have developed a philosophy that has paid off very well over the past decades. Here is our simple rule. Take 10% profit in 30 days or less. If you are in a stock that has additional upside potential, raise your stop-loss to protect your gains. This simple methods has allowed Stockwinners's portfolio to register a 2012 year-to-date return of 43.8% compared to the S&P 500 Index's 10.9%. How did we do that?
