Congrats on reserving one of the limited membership rolls here in our Platinum Growth Club. By becoming a Platinum member you're giving yourself an undeniable investing edge, and I can't wait to help you get started. We have a goal here at Platinum and that's to lock in at least 50 double- or triple-digit stock winners a year.

And we've been achieving that goal, year after year. Take a look:

Winners 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
Double-digit 103 43 92 70 52 52 84 47 60 59 73
Triple-digit 12 8 1 5 8 8 10 8 4 3 6
TOTAL 180 105 156 126 90 90 119 68 90 84 102

More Winners, More Profits

I'm not saying we're perfect. I'll be the first to admit we don't always knock it out of the park with every stock pick. But you can rely on me and my entire team to work 24/7 to vet the over 5,000 stocks on Wall Street for you, and to help you blend our elite picks into an optimal portfolio. And given our history of beating the market, you can rest assured we're here to help you trounce the market by locking in more winners than you'd see investing in any one of my four investing newsletters alone.

In fact, we'll track our total number of double- and triple-digit winners throughout every 12-month period in our Stock Score Card found in the upper right corner of our Platinum Growth Club website. Our Score Card is there to ensure we never lose sight of what's important—hitting our 50 double- or triple-digit closed positions target and helping you build your wealth.

An Incredible Arsenal, at An Incredible Value

Your Platinum Growth Club membership gives you access to each of my three main investing newsletters, Growth Investor (focusing on long-term large-cap investing and dividend growth), Breakthrough Stocks (focusing on long-term smaller-cap investing) and Accelerated Profits (focusing on short-term momentum and global investing). That means you have unlimited access to all of the advice, tools and stock recommendations in every investing newsletter I currently publish.

Plus, your low membership fee includes a number of exclusive member benefits such as:

  • Live Chats. Every other month, I'll host a special members-only online chat/webinar to share with you my outlook on the market, interactive charts with my top stocks, plus update you on how to best fine-tune your portfolio. These dynamic events are me talking to you from the comfort of your own home. These sessions also give you a unique opportunity to ask your questions online in real-time. It's the next best thing to having me stop by in person!
  • Video Coaching Sessions. These sessions will teach you my secrets for successful investing. They will teach you added tips and techniques to maximize our Model Portfolio of stocks. No two investors are the same, which is why I'll show you how to create and blend a portfolio designed for your specific risk tolerance and financial goals.
  • Podcasts. You receive exclusive access to special podcasts for Platinum Growth Club members. If there's breaking market news or an urgent development in our stocks, no matter where I am in the country I'll record a podcast for you so you can hear my insights and recommendations without delay.
  • Dedicated Concierge team. We value your membership, and strive to give you the best in Customer Service every day. That's why, as a Platinum member, you get a direct line to a dedicated Platinum Growth Club Concierge (1-800-784-0870) and your emails to us are always made a priority.

And don't forget, you can also email me anytime by visiting the Ask Louis tab. I'm always checking this inbox for messages from members like you.

Now that you have unlimited access to every one of my stock recommendations in any of my investing services, I want to show you a helpful tool to help you track the stocks you're most interested in following.

It's a handy tool called "My Watch List" and you can find it by clicking on the button on the Platinum Growth Club homepage.

What is My Watch List?

Your Watch List is a list of the stocks that you want to keep an eye on. You simply add the stocks you want to follow to this list and in one quick click, you can check on any of your favorite stocks, at any time.

Your Watch List is housed within Portfolio Grader, so for every stock on your Watch List you'll see the Total Grade, Current Price and every other bit of analytical and informative data that my exclusive stock-rating tool has to offer.

You can add or edit stocks as often as you'd like. Just keep in mind that the Watch List is built for a maximum of 100 stocks.

Short-Cuts You Should Know

In addition to accessing your Watch List on the home page of our members-only Platinum Growth Club website, there are two short-cuts you can take to access your Watch List when you're crunched for time.

Short-cut #1: You can access your Watch List under the handy Navellier Dashboard feature on the home page of NavellierGrowth.com (provided you're logged in with your personal Username and Password of course). Rest assured that any stocks you include in this list will be displayed for you—and you alone.

Short-cut #2: You can also access your Watch List within the Portfolio Grader tool itself. Once you've logged in with your personal Username and Password, simply click on the My Portfolios link and you'll find My Watch List waiting for you right there, too.

It doesn't matter how you get to your Watch List, as long as you remember to save any changes you make, it will always be updated and waiting for you 24/7.

This is a great tool for DIY (do-it-yourself) investors, as well as those just starting and waiting for the optimal prices to buy our top-rated stocks.

Now, from the countless emails I receive from investors, I know that not everyone is a DIY (do-it-yourself) investor. That's why I've created an exclusive Model Portfolio exclusively for Platinum Growth Club members.

Between all four of my main newsletters I recommend some 100 stocks in total. So it's no surprise that one of the biggest requests I received when I first launched the Platinum Growth Club, was a way to help members wade through the sheer volume of stocks. That's when I created our exclusive Platinum Model Portfolio.

What You Need to Know

Our Model Portfolio will be tracked independently of the other newsletters. That means I'll contact Platinum Growth Club members via email on the first business day of each month with updated buy and sell instructions, specific to this portfolio. (And naturally, you'll find these portfolio changes posted at our website too.)

When you look at our Model Portfolio there are a few important things to note:

  1. The buy dates within our Model Portfolio will reflect the first business day of the month or the specific day it was recommended intra-month (rather than the day the stock was first recommended in one my other newsletters).
  2. This portfolio contains a total of about 36 stocks, approximately eight to 10 stocks from each of my newsletters.
  3. You'll find that I'll highlight the top stock within each newsletter section of the Model Portfolio for you at the start of each month.

Is This Model Portfolio Right for You?

Our Model Portfolio takes the guesswork out of how to blend the best stocks from each of my three main newsletters (Growth Investor, Breakthrough Stocks, Accelerated Profits). It essentially "puts it all together" for you. So, if you're interested in a way to simplify the number of stocks you follow and you want help blending them into a powerful, cohesive portfolio, you're going to love using our Model Portfolio.

However, if you're more of a DIY investor or a trader who prefers to have more aggressive stocks in your portfolio, by all means I encourage you to follow your investing bliss and not feel tied to our Model Portfolio. Your Platinum Growth Club membership gives you access to every recommendation in all four of my investing newsletters, and it's 100% up to you how you'd like to take advantage of them.

VIDEO TIP: I've created a special Coaching Session video to make sure you are using this powerful tool to the fullest. You can view it, and my other Coaching Sessions, here.

Our Allocation Tool

Once you have a chance to review our Model Portfolio, you may be wondering how to best blend the stocks within the portfolio. That's where our exclusive Allocation Tool comes in handy. Simply plug the amount of money you plan to invest into our exclusive Allocation Tool and it will show you how to blend the stocks in our Model Portfolio accordingly—right down to the number of shares you ought to own!

It's important to note that there are two steps (noted by the two tabs) within our Allocation Tool. Step 1 is a short three-question survey to help you determine which portfolio blend is right for you: Conservative, Moderately Aggressive or Aggressive.

Once you have determined your level of risk tolerance, you're off to Step 2.

Here, simply plug the amount of money you plan to invest into our exclusive Allocation Tool and it will show you how to blend the stocks in our Model Portfolio accordingly. The tool will automatically calculate the number of shares you should buy of each stock as well as the total value of your holdings in each individual play.

Be sure to locate the appropriate column (Conservative, Moderately Aggressive or Aggressive) before you input the total value of your portfolio in the "Enter your Target Value" box. We want to be sure you're using a portfolio blend that's best suited for you!

VIDEO TIP: I have a dedicated Coaching Session for our Allocation Tool available as well. This step-by-step guide will help you become a portfolio allocation master in just a few minutes. You can view this special Coaching Session here.

If you have questions, I have a special FAQ section devoted to our Model Portfolio and Allocation Tool within our Resource Center.

The Platinum Growth Club is not only designed to provide you with unprecedented one-on-one access to me and all of the tools in my investing arsenal, but also to provide you with exclusive access to an entire community of like-minded investors who are passionate about reaping market-beating returns. We have quite an extensive network here in our club, and I'm happy you're now a part of it.

Utilizing the Platinum Network

As you'll see there are a number of ways to utilize our network:

  • You have access to our LIVE monthly chats. These chats are our own virtual classroom. So I'll come with my version of a lesson plan, draw on the board and even ask you to raise your hand (virtually that is). These are highly interactive events between you and me and your fellow Club members.
  • Of course you can also email me anytime by visiting the Ask Louis tab. Though I'm often on the road and on the go, I make it a habit to check this mailbox daily. Your messages are important to me and I'll always do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
  • Last but not least, I can't leave out your Platinum Concierge. Your membership has a number of privileges and one of them is first-rate customer service every day. That's why as a Platinum member you get a direct line to a dedicated Platinum Growth Club Concierge (1-800-784-0870) five days a week; Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Your emails to us are also moved to the front of the queue for priority handling.

The word Club is in the title of this service for a reason. You're part of an elite network of investors looking to take their investing to the next level—so don't be bashful, utilize this far-reaching network and you'll reap some wonderful rewards.
