TTS Is Still Killing The Market, Even After A Bad Day

Thursday, August 6, 2015 will be a day to remember, certainly the worst day for Tipping the Scale, TTS, yet. On average, TTS stocks to score a 90 or above rating had losses of 3.1% versus a 0.78% loss on the S&P 500. Clearly, that's not something I want to see, but in realizing the frustration of such performance, I did something that we all need to do sometimes, put it in perspective.

In my frustration following this very horrible session, I remembered that high ranked TTS stocks had outperformed the S&P 500 to the tune of 16% to 1% at one time. Therefore, after this horrendous day, I want to see how the overall performance of these seven stocks have fared against the broader market.

Remember, I compare each stock to the S&P 500 since coverage was initiated. I then find the average. Also, company names are not disclosed. That information is for TTS subscribers only.

If we figure the sum of return, TTS stocks with a 90 or above rating have traded higher by an average of 9.3%, even after Thursday's complete assault. Meanwhile, the average return for the S&P 500 has been a loss of 1.2%, an actual improvement over the previous 16:1 ratio.

With that said, TTS has been live since May 10, almost three months. Chances are is that at some point over the next three months we are going to have another really bad day. However, this data proves over a three month span that those who buy top rated stocks, over 90, and hold, they have outperformed the market by a significant percentage. Further, if we look down the list at stocks with ratings over 80, they too have beaten the market.

In essence, this proves that TTS works, something that continues to be proven. My only regret is that I didn't perform this exercise on Wednesday; could you imagine what the performance would have been then?
