 6. Does GetFolio.com require a heavy time commitment, and is it easy to use and understand?
Most subscribers find themselves grasping the concept and mechanics after reading our tutorials and following a few of our recommendations, but in general the process should not take more than 15 minutes each day. As an added convenience, because there is no software to install (everything is accessed via a web browser and your personal login), you can connect to GetFolio from anywhere in the world.

7. How do you generate your recommendations?
The GetFolio system is a unique, 100% mechanical and unemotional strategy, designed by market veteran and professional money manager Moti Weinberg. The GetFolio ranking system is based on price and volatility action. The exact formulas behind it is proprietary. However, the logic behind the system is explained via many tutorials and examples that are available to you, making it even more obvious why our Historical Performance is so good.

11. How does your system insure good diversification?
The entire GetFolio Strategy is focused on diversification, and subscribers are strongly encouraged to build diversified portfolios. In addition, the GetFolio.com Position manager provides you with a sector report so you can track how well you are diversified (you are also alerted if you are too heavily concentrated in one sector, or one stock).

You are always in control as to what stocks to buy.

14. Is there a minimum amount of capital required to use your service?
The minimum is $20,000.

15. Do you short stocks?
No. We prefer to control risk by raising cash levels, as opposed to shorting stocks or the market, which is often unpredictable.

16. Can the Pro 50 Position Manager track multiple, separate portfolios?
The Pro 50 Position Manager can track up to 50 stocks in one portfolio. We offer the ability to track additional portfolios at an extra charge.

17. The strategies used in your Position Manager seem similar to those taught by Turtle Trading and Dr. Van Tharp. How does your work differ from theirs?
We think Dr. Van Tharp's book is simply excellent, but all good money management concepts tend to share the same basic logic. There are many theoretical sources that provide a great education. Reading or attending seminars may improve your overall understanding of the subject matter, but it is another matter altogether to apply it in the real world.  The GetFolio Position Manager is a complete and thorough live tool for the practical application of strict money management rules, without emotional obstacles. Our subscribers are impressed with the Position Manager, and we are sure Dr. Van Tharp would be too. Having said that, we strongly recommend any investor who is serious about investing to read Dr. Van Tharp's book "Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom".

We believe Steven, a GetFolio subscriber, said it best in his testimonial letter: 
"I just can't believe that no one else is doing what you do...it makes so much sense. I have subscribed to a lot of investment newsletters. So many are hung up on Technicals that hardly leave you with a trade to make by the time the light finally turns green. Others are intensely focused upon ascertaining the intrinsic value of the business, the underlying assumption being that some day the rest of the world will agree and the stock price will follow. Your system deals with the empirically-proven behavior of beaten-down stocks and has identified the best way of estimating the inflection points for investment. I especially like the money-management emphasis. I feel very comfortable with it."

18. Does GetFolio.com offer a Position Manager with higher diversification levels?
Yes, we offer upgrades to Position Managers that track more stocks for those that want a higher diversification level.

19. What is your "Performance Guarantee"?
The GetFolio.com performance guarantee is offered to new subscribers, who follow our timely recommendations. We guarantee that your ROI will outperform the market for the 1-year period of your subscription, or we will refund your subscription fee.

20. Is the strategy covered by the Hulbert Financial Digest?
Hulbert covers only investment newsletters that track model portfolios. GetFolio.com is a money management tool; it is not an investment newsletter. The GetFolio strategy was developed and tested by Moti Weinberg, using real money, since 1990. Its goal is to provide you with money management skills that go beyond what traditional investment newsletters offer. The staff of GetFolio uses the strategy to invest our own money, so while we don't provide model portfolios as a tool for our subscribers, we know how to best use the system, and explain it in detail in our tutorials.

21. How does your strategy perform in a bear market?
Given the main theory behind our strategy: value, a bear market is our favorite environment. (For that reason, we actually look forward to bear markets, or any market sell off.)
Essentially, the GetFolio.com strategy is designed for managing portfolios in both bull and bear markets, and our Position Manager provides the appropriate signals for managing both types of markets in a mechanical, non-emotional fashion.

22. What are the available payment options?
The following are our payment options:
1) The preferred method is our online payment system.
2) You can also use Paypal.com to pay by credit card or a direct debit from your bank account.
3) If you wish to directly wire your payment from your bank account to ours, please contact us at support@GetFolio.com for our wiring instructions.

23. Do you offer monthly or trial subscriptions?
We do not offer monthly or other short-term trial subscriptions. Quite honestly, we have serious reservations about selling short term subscriptions as it tends to attract investors looking for instant results, who are the type of subscribers we try to avoid. We recommend following our investment strategy for a full year so you are able to see how the systems reacts over time. Accordingly, our yearly subscription rate has a performance guarantee.

24. How many years has GetFolio.com been in business?
We have been online since 1998, an eternity in the on-line business world!

25. Have you taken steps to insure continuity of service, in case of unforeseen circumstances like a natural disaster or illness of a staff member?
The GetFolio database (including all customer accounts) is backed up daily, to prevent any data loss due to server malfunctions. The operations of our service can be managed from anywhere in the world. The staff is prepared to take over vital day-to-day functions performed by other members in case one of us is out due to illness or vacations.

26. How does your strategy compare to another investment service or product?
Although we are aware of other competitive services or products available on the internet and the general strategies behind them, we do not do in-depth analysis of those products/services as that would require purchasing the product or subscription. You will need to draw your own conclusions, based on the information provided on our respective sites.
BACK TO TOP
 
27. More questions?
We pride ourselves on giving excellent customer service, and both Moti's office and home numbers are listed on our subscriber site. We also have a very capable tech support team that can answer all of your questions at support@GetFolio.com.

Undertrade, undertrade, undertrade is my second piece of advice.
Whatever you think your position ought to be, cut it at least in half."
