Ideas by TradeSmith

One of the latest updates to Ideas by TradeSmith is in TradeSmith’s Lab. Have you spotted it?

That’s right! It’s the Newsletters column. You can see how many newsletters have referenced each position found in TradeSmith’s Lab. For example, in the screenshot above, we can see Verizon is in 5 newsletters, Dollar General is in 4 newsletters, and so on.

NOTE: You must sync your newsletters with Ideas by TradeSmith for this column to work.

To see which newsletters correspond to each position, just click the hyperlinked number. A pop-up will appear, listing those newsletters.

This can be a great way to see if a position is recommended across multiple newsletters or if it’s relatively unknown by the publishers you follow. It’s up to you to decide if the number of times a position is recommended should weigh into your buying decisions.

Bulletin Board

Last week, our President and Chief Product Officer asked some of you to complete a survey. We promised to select one person at random who completed the survey, for a prize. Congratulations to Richard from New York — the winner of a $1,000 TradeSmith credit. And, of course, thank you to all who completed the survey. The data will help our teams understand you better as investors and what future product updates will help you the most.

Speaking of investing, have you read TradeSmith’s latest editorial? It takes a deep-dive into the psychology of large investors, the kind with portfolio sizes in the hundreds of millions. Even investors like these can fall prey to this simple mistake. Read the article to find out what it is and how you can avoid it.

In observance of MLK Jr. Day, our TradeSmith offices will be closed Monday, Jan. 21. If you need assistance, please email the Customer Success team at [email protected]. We will get back to you when our offices reopen on Jan. 22.
