"...a big thank you. In my first week as a subscriber to TrendWatch, I made a profit large enough to cover my first two years subscription (Tanfield). As they say in these parts, ye cannae whack it!" (V.T. East Lothian, February 2007)
"Brilliant publication!" (D.M. Rotherham, September 2004)
"I have been following [the recommendations in my first 4 issues] on my computer portfolio with an imaginary £1,000 per share at your stated price and so far, i.e. within a month and a half, I would have made a profit of £2,000 over a hypothetical investment of £12,000... PS I showed a copy of TrendWatch to a good friend of mine for his comments. He was very impressed with the depth of research. Watch out, he may be a customer for you." (A.C. Reading, January 2006)
"Thank you for your publication. I subscribed just at the beginning of December and I am really enjoying it. I can't wait for the next issue. Thanks again for a great publication." (T. S. Tunbridge Wells, January 2008)
I am really enjoying my subscription to your superb and most informative publication." (W.J.C. SW London, October 2005)
Your reports are excellent and very informative... You seem to be gifted with words and special writing skills that keeps the reader on his toes until he finishes reading your whole report." (R.S. Southall, April 2006)
"Thanks again for an excellent publication. It's great to see a publication about investment that isn't afraid to call attention to the bad practices and poor deals that we have been getting from the financial services sector for so long... Having decided to try to make my own investment decisions, I am finding that TrendWatch is helping me to keep afloat." (H.D. Bristol, January 2003)
"As a subscriber of only a few weeks so far I am impressed with everything. I have tried [a named competitor] in the past and got fed up as they would tip a stock and, if it crashed (as it often did), they never mentioned it again, brushed it under the carpet. I lost a load of cash. I like the fact that you seem to put all your tips onto your portfolio and seem to stick with your readers - giving constant updates on what's going on as if we are all in this together." (J.N. Surrey, October 2007)
"I value TrendWatch a lot. It is the first time in many years' share dealing that I am doing well, thanks to you!" (J.C. Devon, February 2005)
"I think TrendWatch is an excellent publication. Best of luck with your novel approach. It has been refreshing to read... especially as it is not a copycat of other publications" (A.B. Ceredigion, August 2007)
"It's a great newsletter... keep up the excellent work" (B.C. Ilford, November 2005)
"I remember in the past you said that a skilful investor could make 15%-20% per annum but your recent recommendations have done exactly that much in 2 months! Your stock picking skills are excellent and your research is brilliant. Your Plus markets and BPRG tips were nothing short of the work of a genius - you are clever at finding companies that have something in the pipeline... If it was just luck or coincidental then you wouldn't have the returns we are seeing over such a long period of time." (N.M. Watford, February 2006)
