Last summer I looked back for 5 years of blue chip and it was worth the price. I just looked at my form 5498 for 2016 it says $172,128. This is my Roth account. When I look at it today it’s 193,000. So I have no issues especially because I buy the account when it’s on sale. And I’m putting any more money in it as I retired the end of 2016.

Sorry I did not read my review when I posted it. I will not put in anymore money to my Roth IRA account because I’m retired. I am fully invested in his portfolio. As I said I’m satisfied with the results. I have other accounts that I sometimes use other newsletters but also pick my own stocks. Can’t believe what I own in stocks.

I have been very pleased with the Blue Chip Growth letter over the years. I’ve subscribed to 6 or 7 other newsletters and would rate this one as my first choice. After a period of focusing on index funds and not closely following the BCG portfolio for a year or so, in October 2016 I re-started my portfolio of Navellier’s recommendations by taking positions in his “New Buys” and “Top Five” recommendations. Now, nine months later, I have 20 stocks in the portfolio with an overall unrealized gain of 24%. The S&P 500 gain for the same period is 13.6%. Nine months is not long enough for a final judgement, but my earlier experiences with the portfolio were similar.

I like this letter for a number of reasons. It is easy to read and to follow. Navellier’s complete “buy list” of 35 to 40 stocks is easily managed. Trading frequency is relatively low, in the range of 3 to 5 per month. There is not a lot of turnover in the portfolio. Navellier’s instructions are clear and timely. His recommendations for “Buys” and ‘Holds” are given in his monthly letter which arrives via email several days ahead of the hard copy via USPS. I receive an email when Navellier issues a “Sell” recommendation. On-line tools include the Portfolio Grader and the Earnings Center, both of which are quite useful in carrying out due diligence on not only his recommendations, but other stocks as well. . One complaint I have, and it is a small one, is Navellier’s occasional delay in making the call to sell a declining stock. Another minor criticism I have is the lack of an account status on the Blue Chip Growth web site. To find out when my subscription expires, I have to email Navellier— but they always reply. Overall, I would give this letter 4.5 stars.

Today, Navellier’s ad on his web site claims that his Blue Chip Growth portfolio has outperformed the S&P 500 by a factor of 3-to-1 since 1997. The numbers he gives are 387% gain for BCG and 167% for S&p 500….. which looks more like 2.3-to-1 to me, so I don’t know how he gets the 3:1 ratio unless you truncate rather that round the percentages. I’ve not seen an independent audit of that claim, but from my experience with the portfolio, it is a believable number.
