Much like The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and Forbes, we’re a financial publishing company.
Our sole purpose is to provide you, our reader, with easy and affordable access to timely, well-researched and unbiased stock analysis.
There are a number of ways we go about doing this that we believe give us a clear edge over the competition…
First, unlike many other companies in our industry, we don’t publish anything in print. That means no magazines or newspapers.
Instead, our newsletter is published 100% in digital format in the form of an email.
That may not sound as fancy as a company that actually prints its market analysis and delivers it to your house in hard copy, but as you’re about to see, it makes a heck of a lot more sense (for the both of us) to simply keep things 100% digital.
There are plenty of reasons for this, but here are the two biggies:
- Email Format = a FREE Subscription for You: By sending our newsletter out only through email, we almost entirely avoid publishing and delivery costs. In fact, the small amount that we do pay we’re willing to absorb, which means we don’t have to charge you at all for a subscription. On the other hand, imagine all the costs we’d have to incur (and pass on to you in subscription fees) if we had to print and mail our newsletter to you 365 days a year! Can you see why it’s such a benefit for you that we offer our newsletter in an “email only” format?
- Email Format = Timely Alerts: The other big advantage of sending our newsletter to you only via email is that we drastically reduce the time it takes to deliver our analysis. As you know, stock prices are constantly changing… and in some cases, what is breaking news today may be old news tomorrow. For the shorter-term trade opportunities we publish, any kind of delay can be costly and have a direct impact on your profit potential. With this in mind, by the very nature of delivering our newsletter by email (instead of snail mail), you’re getting investment ideas and trade alerts almost immediately after we publish them. For example, from the moment we hit the “send” button, the most current issue of Daily Trade Alert will typically arrive to your inbox within just 30 minutes. Compare this to how long it would take if we had to design/format a newspaper or magazine, send it off to the printer, and then have it bulk mailed and delivered by the U.S. Post Office. By the time you would receive our “alert” the recommendation may be old news!
Here’s an illustration that hopefully helps get the point across…
Another advantage we have over the competition is the quality of our content. We truly believe that we’re offering some of the highest-quality, unbiased analysis available. To appreciate our newsletter, you really have to understand where the stock ideas we’re featuring come from.
You see, unlike many other companies in our industry, we don’t have a full time staff of researchers and analysts working for us.
What this means is that we’re not tied down to only covering the stock recommendations of certain analysts (the ones we employee). Instead, we literally have a buffet of analysts to choose from.
Here’s how it works…
Each and every day we sift through roughly one to two dozen of the most popular (and successful) investment newsletters on the market. We then zero-in on the ideas that appear to be the most well-researched, timely and actionable for today’s market environment. We skip over any fluff and choose our four favorite ideas from the lot. We consider these ideas to be the “best of the best.” They’re the recommendations that ultimately make it into the next issue of Daily Trade Alert.
Here’s a diagram to help you understand how it works…
Again, the sole purpose of our service is to provide you, our reader, with easy and affordable access to timely, well-researched and unbiased stock analysis.
We think we have the right formula here… but it hinges on the fact that we need your email address to make it work. Without your email address, how can we send you our newsletter?
We want to make it clear that at the end of the day our goal is NOT to collect your personal information. That’s simply a means to an end. Our goal is to provide you with our unique service (our Daily Trade Alert newsletter) in hope that the information we provide helps you make better-informed investment decisions.
All of this said, the best way to provide our service to you — in fact, the ONLY way — is to deliver our newsletter to you by email. In other words, in order to provide you with our service we need your email address.
We hope you consider giving us a shot.
How it Works
We subscribe to roughly two dozen of the nation’s leading investment newsletters.
Each day we read through their latest recommendations — which cover everything from stocks and bonds to precious metals and commodities.
What we’re looking for are the absolute “best of the best” investment ideas for today’s uncertain market.
After singling out our favorites, we pass them along to you for FREE on our web site and in our daily newsletter, Daily Trade Alert.
We also include any important analyst “upgrades” or “downgrades” we think you should be aware of.
For example, if an analyst at Morgan Stanley or Wells Fargo issues a new “Buy” rating for a popular stock you may own, you can be sure we’ll tell you about it in the current issue of Daily Trade Alert.
Likewise, we’ll also let you know if an analyst at Goldman Sachs or UBS downgrades a widely-held stock to “Sell” status.
You’ll find this valuable information in both our newsletter and on our web site each and every day the stock market is open.
In addition, each quarter we sift through the SEC filings of two of today’s wealthiest and most successful investors, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
What we’re looking for here are their latest portfolio changes — so we can identify which stocks they’re buying, and which ones they’re selling. Since these billionaires are some of the best-informed investors on the planet, having their latest stock moves at your fingertips can be rewarding.
This special feature of Daily Trade Alert is just one more example of how we’ll help you track down some of the most profitable investment opportunities on the market.
How is it Free?
Many of our readers have asked us how we offer a service like Daily Trade Alert at no cost.
Here’s the short answer: instead of charging you a subscription fee, 100% of our operations are funded by advertisements. In other words, our advertisers pay us so you don’t have to.
We truly believe that this kind of business model can create value and a positive experience for everyone involved. For example…
- Our readers are happy because they get high-quality investment ideas and analysis at no cost
- Our advertisers are happy because they get to put their offers in front of an engaged audience
- And since our operations are funded by advertisers, we’re happy because we can focus on providing high-quality content to our readers (rather than focus on trying to sell them something).
So what do these advertisements look like, anyways?
First, to help you clearly identify them, we try to label all ads on our website and in our newsletter as either “advertisement”, “sponsor” or “sponsored link” whenever possible.
Of course, if you’re ever unsure of whether or not you’re looking at an ad you can always click on the link and see what website you are taken to. If you’re taken to a site that’s NOT on DailyTradeAlert.com, then you’ve most likely clicked on an ad.

Our “Open Door” Policy
While we’re happy with our large, loyal following, we realize our newsletter isn’t for everyone.
If at any time you’re not satisfied with our work you can unsubscribe by using the “unsubscribe” link found at the bottom of each and every email. We’ve made the “unsubscribe” process simple, quick and effective — but if you run into any issues at all, please send us a note at postmaster@DailyTradeAlert.com.
Also, we try to keep the communication lines as open as possible. If you have anything to tell us — whether it’s an idea on how we can improve or a success story from a recommendation you heard about at Daily Trade Alert, feel free to let us know.

By far, the most rewarding part of our business is that it’s enabled us to help a number of meaningful causes both here in the United States, as well as in far-away places like the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, Japan, Zambia, Haiti, Nicaragua, Syria and the Philippines.
By listing these, we don’t intend to pat ourselves on the back or to be “honored by men.” Instead, we hope to help hold ourselves accountable to continue giving (by making these details public) and, at the same time, perhaps we can encourage others to give as well.
