Sometimes feels like we are buying high and selling low. Suffered lots of real losses following these trades. I value the site for DD but don't feel AB has a handle on the market trends.
Following the trade alerts almost wiped out my portfolio. This guy is one of the worst traders ever. I did better on my own.
Good community but poor stock calls, needs to be able to tell people to get out when the industry is cashing instead of just saying buy more.
Literally the worst.
between the erratic trading, terrible trading, and paid promotions, this service has proven to be nothing more than a time and value suck. happy to cancel.
Alan is a great guy who is really talented and seems to be an expert here. However, I'm very surprised that he makes some terrible recommendations. He recommended PHOT, CANN, and VAPE as the best and most reliable companies to buy and hold long term. Well, they have been absolutely horrendous calls. There is too much pump and dump in this sector, and Alan doesn't do a good job steering people away from them; he seems to add to them.
Lost a ton of money on the recommendations. Also get emails and text messages all day and night. Way to many messages. I'm done with this one.
the info is fine, but i have to log in to see any message and the message themselves have such little information in them. would be way more useful if the emails actually had information in them or if you didn't have to log in ever time.
Trading on paper IS NOT THE SAME AS HAVING REAL MONEY AT STAKE. I don't appreciate that he is not trading with his own money, yet recommending trades based mostly on pure speculation. He also trades FAR TOO OFTEN for someone who claims to believe in his "guesses" at price movements.
Really getting tired of this. Activity page is the culprit. Text will not take my text. Really getting tired of this. Activity page is the culprit. Text will not take my text. Really getting tired of this. Activity page is the culprit. Text will not take my text.
Fixated on GW Pharma. Getting seriously bored hearing about GW Pharma, GW Pharma that. Really surprised the paper portfolio has not done better given the time Alan devotes to the sector. He should invest real money or stop. I left and came back but really see little reason to stick around.
You were shit after a year of being with you and multiple emails didn’t help with nothing they way it’s worded I thought I was investing in stocks instead it was a scam
I have been a member for 5 years and I have seen a lot from this "maven". Extremely disrespectful to members. Very argumentative. He doesn't trade his own money in this sector all of the trades are paper trades. He spends a lot of time bragging about the trades he does in his personal accounts with real money but only after the fact. He has vouched for so many of these marijuana companies and "pounded the table" numerous times only to find out they were fraudulent. If you look at his returns they are very skewed because the first few years you couldn't lose in this sector and the gains were astronomical but the last few years has been a much different story. Many members who question him or try and understand the reasoning he does certain things he sadly boots from site or mutes their account so they can't post. My advice put the membership $ into the S&P 500 reinvest the dividends and you will be very happy.
Stop asking for reviews
Alan, After about 3 years, I'm terminating my account. Following your advice, I have lost about $75,000 over the last couple years. I got totally out out of cannabis stocks by August to stop the bleeding. Just can't listen to you anymore. I found that you will love a company and its management, then you don't. BUT, by the then you don't like them, I've lost significantly. Even a "Table Pounder" lost my ass. Therefore I have NO CONFIDENCE in what you have to say. I totally understand why you are losing memberships. Adios, Shaun
