Worst Newsletters of 2009

Peter Brimelow of MarketWatch wrote another great article about the worst investment newsletters for 2009. For the 2009 YTD period covered by Brimelow, the Wilshire 5000 Total Stock Market Index (VTSMX Charts and Quote) gained 27.10% with dividends reinvested.
  1. Crawford Perspectives -7.2%
    Crawford was #1 last year so Brimelow included him this year by expanding the bottom 10 to a bottom-11 article.
  2. Investment Models Newsletter -9.4%
  3. Almanac Investor Newsletter -12.1%
  4. Sy Harding's Street Smart Report -12.5%
  5. Peter Eliades Stock Market Cycles -12.5%
  6. Coolcat Total Stock Market Report -19.1%
  7. Nasdaq Wizard Mid-Term Model -20.1%
  8. Carnegie Management Group -24.4%
  9. Nasdaq Wizard Long-Term Model -30.7%
  10. Bernie Schaeffer's Option Advisor -33.09%
  11. Doug Fabian's ETF Trader -49.2%
As of December 24, 2009, "Kirk's Newsletter Explore Portfolio" is up 34.3% YTD vs. DJIA up 19.9% YTD vs BRKA up 2.4% YTD

It is too bad Brimelow doesn't include the 10 year performance for the top and bottom lists. I'd like to see how many beat the markets over 10 years or more.

Since 12/31/98 "Kirk's Newsletter Explore Portfolio" is UP 161% (a double plus another 61%!!) vs. the S&P500 UP at tiny 9.7% vs. NASDAQ UP an even smaller 4.3% (All through 12/24/09) (More info - FREE Sample Issue)
