#4 Penny Pro: [Explore a Detailed Penny Pro Review by Matt Thomas] Rating: 9.25/10
Penny Pro is run by 15+ year stock trading veteran, Jeff Williams. The service offers daily watch lists (often in video form) and the occasional swing trade alert, but the main attraction is the day trading chat room. This is where Jeff and other chat moderators hop on the microphone to explain various developments throughout the day, utilize “screen share” technology to teach live lessons on technical & fundamental analysis, and the entire Penny Pro community comes together to interact, share ideas, and of course – trade penny stocks. What makes Penny Pro unique is the focus on legitimate penny and sub-penny stocks (price per share under $1, sometimes even under $.01). It takes a special type of service to be able to get complete novices up-to-speed with the ins-and-outs of penny stock trading, but Penny Pro is known for its extreme beginner-friendliness. In August 2016, Jeff Williams launched a mentor service of his own: Penny Pro Elite. Like JBP’s Millionaire Roadmap, this is a smaller group of traders that have heavily committed to their trading success and want the absolute best training available.
#5 K Capital Stock Alerts: [Explore a Detailed K Capital Review by Matt Thomas] Rating: 8.00/10
K Capital Advisors was founded by Kyle Matthew Fisher in November of 2013. In July 2016, the name shifted to K Capital Stock Alerts. What sets Kyle apart from other newsletter operators is his extensive background in finance. With an MBA from one of the nation’s leading universities, over a decade of experience as a finance executive with a Fortune 100 company, and currently working to achieve the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, he provides an instant sense of reliability and trust. That first impression holds true as his service is indeed rooted in full transparency. Performance since inception can be provided through a detailed spreadsheet (both wins and losses included) and he’s verified these trades through legitimate brokerage screenshots. Benefits of the service include pre-market commentary, nightly watch lists, real-time alerts, a professional portfolio model, and more. Above all, K Capital has consistently outperformed the market with flexible swing trading opportunities ranging 10-20 days on average – allowing members to achieve amazing results even if only trading part-time.

#2 Action Alerts Plus: [Explore a Detailed Action Alerts Plus Review by Matt Thomas] Rating: 8.50/10
Action Alerts Plus is operated by Jim Cramer, Portfolio Manager, and Jack Mohr, Director of Research. This is not your standard short-term trading service like Jason Bond Picks or Top Stock Picks, but still demonstrates active portfolio management. The Action Alerts Plus team certainly doesn’t endorse a “buy-and-forget” approach. Ideal hold times are long-term in nature, but positions are analyzed on a routine basis for opportunities to add, pare back, sell off completely, or sit tight as necessary. The focus is on dividend-generating, blue-chip stocks for at least six to nine months on average. Jim Cramer has an illustrious background in investing: he founded financial news website TheStreet.com, is the host of CNBC’s Mad Money, and carries with him fourteen years of hedge fund management experience. Through Action Alerts Plus, Jim Cramer and Jack Mohr co-manage a large, diversified portfolio. Since 2011, the gains from the Action Alerts Plus Portfolio have been distributed to various charities after the close of each trading year, accounting for over $2.5 million in total donations.
