Investment Return Calculation Disclosure
Currently Elite Inside Trader Pro runs three different portfolios that are bench marked against the S&P500. Although our objective is to outperform the S&P, we can not guarantee that this will always be the case.
The 3 portfolio services we currently have in play are:
The returns for each portfolio are calculated exactly the same way. When we buy a stock, we reference the “Go Price” at which we bought it. Paid subscribers have access to each portfolio and are able to see each stock’s “Go Price”. Each portfolio also lists the “Current Price” which is simply the current stock price being pulled directly from the NASDAQ. The percentage return is then calculated:
(“Go Price” – “Current Price” / “Go Price” = Our Return)
The S&P price is calculated in a similar format. When we purchase a stock at the “Go Price”, we then reference the S&P price for that day using the ticker symbol (SPY). The price of the SPY for that day is then recorded as the “SPY Go Price”. By pulling in the SPY price from the NASDAQ on a daily basis, we are able to determine the Current SPY Price which then calculates the S&P Return. The percentage return is calculated as follows:
(Go SPY Price – Current SPY Price / Go SPY Price = S&P Return)
Once we have determined each individual’s stock price return against the S&P Return, all columns are then added up and divided by the number of stocks in the portfolio. The average return for both our stocks and the S&P over the same exact time period is then calculated and displayed at the bottom of each portfolio in the “Average Return” field. The same average returns are then displayed in the “Subscribe Today” advertisement listed in top right section of on each page.
