About the Digital Transformation Marketplace Service

The Digital Transformation marketplace service covers a wide variety of high-growth stocks, mostly software-oriented, that are involved in shaping the new world of digital or undergoing a digital transformation. Four portfolios are provided that capitalize on the paradigm shift: SKYY-Light, HACK-Less, DT Wide Moat, and Steve's Picks. The first three portfolios are quantitative in nature. Stocks are rated according to a unique growth formula proven successful during backtesting and also during live performance. For example, the SKYY-Light portfolio returned 174% in 2020.

New For 2021

Due to subscriber feedback, long-term variants of the three quant portfolios are now being provided. These portfolios are low turnover versions of the originals, and most trades should satisfy the criteria for long-term capital gains. The new portfolios are designated with 'LT' at the end and are called SKYY-Light LT, HACK-Less LT, and DT Wide Moat LT.
