About Top Guns Trading

Let's just admit it; the stock market can be challenging at times. But the pros know that there are some easy ways to put the odds in their favor on a regular basis.

This is precisely why we started TopGunsTrading.com -- to help individual investors utilize professional investing and trading strategies. The overall goal to assist our members and visitors to be the most successful investors they can be, regardless of the market environment.

Simply put, we believe that investors can achieve far greater success in the markets by focusing on the "Top Gun" stocks. Ask yourself a few simple questions: Why would you want to trade any old stock when you can buy companies with the strongest earnings? Why bother with a blue chip, when you can own a top performer? In short, we've found that by focusing on the top rated stocks, the odds of success are stacked in your favor -- before you ever enter a buy order.

We Believe...

Our philosophy of investing is to "Own the Best and Ignore the Rest." Thus, we buy only the Top Gun companies in the market and then focus on managing risk at every turn. That's it. Believe it or not, it really is that easy.

Before we go any further, allow me to get a bit philosophical and expound on a few of the key ideas that make up the belief system at TopGunsTrading.com.

We believe in:

  • Market Leaders: We focus on the market's Top Gun Stocks (the top rated stocks in each market sector) at all times.

  • Different Strategies for Different Markets: Why would anyone use the same approach to both Bull and Bear markets? During Bull markets, it is important to "make hay while the sun shines." However, during a Bear market, capital preservation is job one.

  • Admitting Mistakes: We run real portfolios, in real-time, for all to see. Thus, you'll see the good, the bad, and the occasional bumbling mistake -- which we will always own up to.

  • Tracking and Publishing Performance: In the real world of investing, performance is EVERYTHING! So why should the newsletter business be any different? If a newsletter editor won't tell you EXACTLY what the return on their portfolio has been, the term "caveat emptor" is applicable!

  • Managing Risk: Losing the least amount possible during a Bear market is the REAL key to long-term success in the markets. Remember Warren Buffet's number one rule for successful investing: "Never Lose Big Money." (His second rule is: "Never, ever, forget rule number 1!")

  • Owning the Best and Ignoring the Rest: Why would anyone want to own a stock that's not performing?

  • Providing Honest Services: At TopGunsTrading.com, what you see is what you get. There is nothing hidden or assumed. We tell you exactly what and when we are going to buy or sell, and why we are making the trade (subscribers tell us that the "why" is sometimes the most important part of the service). And the only thing we GUARANTEE is that we won't be right all the time!

  • Flexibility: We believe it is absolutely, positively VITAL to be able to adapt to the changing face of the market. Remember, yesterday's winners are often today's dead money! For example, between 3/31/03 and 3/31/06, Microsoft -- which had been a huge winner in the prior bull market -- gained just +24.2%, while Nvidia (which we owned in the Top Gun Stock portfolio on 3/31/06) grew by +326.4%! (As comparison, the S&P 500 saw an increase of +49.9% during the same time frame.)

  • Establishing Realistic Expectations: There is an awful lot of hype out there, which frankly, we abhor. At TopGunsTrading.com, we focus on delivering real-world trading and portfolio results. So, we're sorry to say that we don't have anything that will turn $5,000 into $300,000,000 in the next 3 months!

  • Beating the Market!  However, let me be completely clear about one thing -- YOU CAN BEAT THE MARKET EVERY SINGLE YEAR! All you need is a solid strategy to focus on the leaders, a workable risk management approach (it really isn't that difficult), and maybe a little help from experienced professionals (which, we hope will be us!).

  • Public Hangings for Spammers!

It is our sincere hope that this little philosophical diatribe will help you understand where we are coming from and why we started the site. To sum thing up as simply as possible, we are here to help.

We welcome you to use our experience, our strategies, and our trade ideas in your efforts to succeed in all investment environments.

What Makes Us Different?

One of the questions we get asked all the time is what makes our Top Gun services different from all the other newsletter sites out there? Frankly, we believe there are five reasons why our services are compelling and are something that serious investors shouldn't be without:

  • REAL MONEY MANAGERS -- TopGunsTrading.com is run by full-time professional money managers and traders who trade for a living, not journalists or part-time investors who treat the market as a hobby to "make a little extra money on the side."

  • EXPERIENCE -- Our Chief Investment Strategist has more than 22 years of experience managing client money in the stock market. TopGunsTrading.com's editors average more than 15 years experience on the stock market's firing line. In short, we've succeeded in bull markets, bear markets, and everything in between.

  • REAL PORTFOLIOS -- Our portfolios are run EXACTLY as the alerts are sent and thus, are "live" for all to see.

  • REAL-TIME -- Our services are run in "real-time." We keep you up to the minute with "live" Trading Alerts, real-time Portfolio Strategy, and daily Market Analysis.

  • WE MANAGE RISK AT ALL TIMES -- We actively manage our exposure to market risk in order to keep our portfolios "in-line" with market conditions at all times. Remember, bear markets are part of the game; so you've got to have a solid strategy to preserve capital during the inevitable market downturns. And to be honest, this is what has kept me in business all these years.

We Are Here To Help!

Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the "Bubble Bear" is that it didn't take anything terribly sophisitcated to avoid the brunt of the bear's losses. Doing the simple things, such as recognizing that tech was no longer a leader, or moving from growth to value, or just raising some cash all would have saved investors countless dollars during the bear period.

While we can't promise to sell at the top and buy at the bottom (which are simply naive goals), we do pledge to do everything possible to help you lose the least amount possible during the next bear market (and yes, there WILL be another bear market!).

We believe strongly that we can help investors manage risk and we don't demand that you buy one of our services to get our help. By simply registering with our site, you can get our "Risk Manager Report" and "Key Market Models" sent to you on a weekly basis completely free of charge.
