RF Racing Tips – Results Update

A small step backwards for RF Racing Tips recently, with a loss of 13 points at advised prices since our last update. 

That means they are now 58 points up at advised prices for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

It’s a similar story at Betfair SP with a loss of 8 points since our last update but 50 points profit made for our trial overall.

So a small retreat lately but we imagine it will just be a blip and they will be back to winning ways soon hopefully.

RF Racing Tips – Results Update

14th June 2020

Horse racing tipster RF Racing Tips has picked up where they left off before the covid break, with another 28 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 71 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

At Betfair SP it has also been a positive story, with another 24 points profit made since our last update and 58 points made for our trial overall.

You get very detailed write-ups with the tips which is good to see and you can tell Ronan who provides the selections really knows his stuff. It’s certainly showing in the results so far too!

RF Racing Tips – Results Update

11th May 2020

RF Racing Tips was doing well before the break in racing, with a further 10 points profit added at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 43 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here. 

At Betfair SP they have been doing well too, with a further 14 points profit made since our last update and 34 points profit made for our trial overall. 

As they only tip in UK and Irish racing there have been no selections since 23rd March. However, we all wait with bated breath for a scheduled restart date for racing. Hopefully won’t be too much longer now…

RF Racing Tips – Results Update

3rd March 2020

Our trial of RF Racing Tips has got off to a good start, with 33 points profit made so far to advised prices after just over a month.

You can view full results here. 

It’s also been a good start at Betfair SP although not quite as much profit made so far, with 20 points made to BSP for our trial to date.

Nice to see a trial getting off to a positive start for a change, we will see if that continues.

RF Racing Tips – New Review

13th February 2020

Today we are starting a new trial of racing tipster from the Betting Gods platform called RF Racing Tips. 

We believe the RF stands for the tipster’s initials (first name Ronan) and from the published results he looks pretty useful. 

His total profit so far stands at over £1,400 to £10 stakes and that equates to £132 profit per month. 

The return on investment is around the 14% mark which is more than acceptable and the strike rate is good at over 30%.

Ronan has shown a good level of consistency with 8 out of 11 months having been profitable to date. 

It looks like quite a straightforward service to follow with just 1-2 bets per day and 1pt e/w or 2pt win bets in the main. 

So all in all looks pretty promising but as ever let’s see how it gets on under live trial conditions. 

We started receiving the tips on 25th January so will record results from then. You will be able to find results updates here as we go along. 

In the meantime you can check out RF Racing Tips for yourself here.

 

 

 

 

The Notorious Tipster - UFC

The Notorious Tipster – UFC – Results Update

Not much change for MMA expert The Notorious Tipster – UFC, with a profit of 2 points made since our last update.

That means they are now 9 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here. 

Just a note to say that our results are slightly different to those recorded on the Tipstrr website as according to James who runs the service, sometimes Tipstrr doesn’t have all the fights available. He says he always raise a ticket and sometimes they fix it and sometimes not. However, our results reflect the exact tips we received by e-mail from James so we are happy to record those and will continue to do so. We hope that Tipstrr can fix the issues at their end so they are able to record the correct results.

Anyway, a solid start here and hopefully they can kick on.

The Notorious Tipster – UFC – Results Update

5th June 2020

It’s been a solid start to our trial of MMA expert The Notorious Tipster – UFC, with a profit of 7 points made since we started following the tips at the beginning of May. 

You can view full results here. 

Just a note to say the staking we have used for our results is that given out by the tipster in his e-mails to us, which is a little different to the staking listed on the Tipstrr website, who we believe have a standardised staking system across their platform.

Either way the results have been good to this point so let’s look for more of the same going forward.

The Notorious Tipster – UFC – New Review

8th May 2020

One of the first sports due to come back after stopping for the coronavirus pandemic is mixed martial arts – specifically the UFC. They have three events planned for 9th, 13th and 16th May in Florida and all eyes will be on them to see if they can make it work with the health protocols they have put in place. The schedule starts with UFC 249 which has some top-quality fights lined up.

So it couldn’t be a better time to start a review of a UFC tipping service. The tipster we are taking a look at today is called The Notorious Tipster – UFC and comes from the Tipstrr platform.

Although they have only been tipping on the platform for a short time, their results look impressive so far with a profit made in each of the three months since they began. 

The strike rate to date is a very healthy 70% and the return on investment strong at 26.5%.

Staking varies between 2 and 6 points and tips are normally sent out on the morning of the fight around 10am (UK time). Most of the tips are on the outright fight winner which makes it pretty simple to follow. 

The good news is that you can currently get a 10-day free trial of the service which covers the three big fixtures coming up.

With MMA becoming more popular around the world there is also more interest in betting on it so it’s good to see some promising tipsters on the sport emerging too. 

We will be watching this service (and another we have lined up to review) closely, particularly now when it’s one of the first major sports to get going again!   

As ever we will record results here so check back in to see how they’re getting on. 

In the meantime you can check out The Notorious Tipster – UFC here. 

 

 

 

 

Golf and tennis ball

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

Golf and tennis tipster Tee and Serve Tips continues to rack up the gains, adding another 15 points profit since our last update.

That means they are now 169 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here. 

With the PGA Tour back up and running they are providing the regular outright, threeball and twoball tips again which is good to see, as well as continuing the tennis tips on the minor tours while we wait for the main tours to resume, which hopefully won’t be much longer now. 

The results here have been very impressive and this is looking like a top tipster in the making. 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

3rd June 2020

Golf and tennis service Tee and Serve Tips keep acing it, if you’ll excuse the pun. Since our last update they’ve added another 65 points profit. 

That means they are now an excellent 154 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

They’ve managed to amass profits recently despite having slim pickings to choose from, which is impressive stuff. The good news is that the PGA Tour returns next week at the Colonial with a stellar field lined up so that will provide some top quality action to get stuck into. 

The main tennis tours aren’t due to resume until August but Tee and Serve are smashing it on the lower tours anyway so that shouldn’t be too much of an issue for them. 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

14th May 2020

It’s been a good run recently for golf and tennis tipster Tee and Serve Tips, with a profit of 12 points made since our last update just over a month ago. 

That means they are now 89 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here. 

After taking a break due to the corona virus on 12th March, they recommenced tipping on 20th April and have done well since then, tipping solely on the World Exhibition Tour tennis – which is pretty much the only tennis or golf going on at the moment! 

However, we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer for golf to return at least, with the PGA Tour due to recommence on 11th June at the Colonial and some lower ranking events in the meantime. There is no clear date for a restart of the main tennis tours but whilst the World Exhibition Tour rolls on that is providing plenty of action for the time being.

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

2nd April 2020

Golf and tennis tipster Tee and Serve Tips has bounced back very well, with a profit of 77 points since our last update just over a month ago. 

That means they are now 73 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

We said last time that things can turn around quickly with just one golf winner and that’s exactly what happened as they landed a tasty treble at the Oman Open at odds of 21/1, which brought in 91 points profit or £910 at £10 stakes. 

With golf and tennis cancelled like just about everything else there have been no bets since 12th March and it’s anyone’s guess when those sports might resume.  News announced yesterday that Wimbledon has been cancelled altogether this year is disappointing but not surprising. Rumours that the Open is going to be cancelled or postponed have been circulating so don’t be surprised if it follows suit. Will be get any golf majors this year? Maybe the Masters in Autumn, but everything really is up in the air at the moment. 

Anyway, good to see Tee and Serve Tips bouncing back here and let’s hope the good form continues when golf and tennis restart, whenever that ends up being!

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

27th February 2020

It’s been a very tough month for golf and tennis tipster Tee & Serve Tips, with a loss of 82 points since our last update. 

Unfortunately that wipes out all their previous gains and means they are now 4 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

For people who joined in the last month it would obviously be a bitter pill to swallow, but with an advised betting bank of 250 points there is still plenty of the bank left and things can always turn around quickly with just one golf winner at decent odds.

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

28th December 2019

It’s been an excellent month for golf and tennis tipster Tee and Serve Tips, with 52 points profit made since our last update.

That means they are 78 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

Highlights of the month so far have been Brandon Grace winning the South African Open at 12/1, which netted a nice 36 points profit and quite a few tennis doubles, including Halep and Kenin both winning their matches 2-0 today which netted another 18 points profit. 

It’s quite a busy service with lots of bets (over 500 selections for our trial to date), but so far it is looking well worth the effort in following. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

28th December 2019

A small gain for Tee and Serve Tips over the last month, with a profit of 4 points made since our last update at the end of November. 

That means they are now 26 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here. 

That doesn’t tell the whole story though as it was actually a very up and down month for them, as they went over 50 points down at one stage before recovering with a great run at the end thanks to Jazz Janewattanond winning the Thailand Masters and some nice threeball bets at the Australian PGA. 

At the same time they were also unlucky with a run of seconds including Louis Oosthuizen, Jon Rahm and Sebastian Munoz all narrowly missing out so it could have been a much better month.

All in all though it was a profitable month so let’s see if they can kick on in 2020. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

25th November 2019

It’s been a good month for golf and tennis tipster Tee and Serve Tips, with a profit of 22 points made. 

That puts them 23 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here. 

One of the interesting thing about the service is that they focus very much on the 2-0 scoreline in sets on the tennis, so they must have a system that focuses on players who tend to win matches easily.

Having said that, the tennis bets will probably be a little more scarce over the next month or so as the main season has just finished and next season doesn’t get going until the new year. 

However, there will of course still be matches going on, plus there are a few golf events left to play this season so should still be some good action to get stuck into. 

 

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Tee and Serve Tips – Results Update

26th October 2019

It’s been an up and down first month of our trial of Tee and Serve Tips, a service offering both golf and tennis tips. At one stage they were 27 points down, but have recovered nicely to finish the month 1 point up.

You can view full results here. 

There was a comment below that the profits have come almost entirely from golf rather than tennis. However, our calculations indicate quite an even spread between the two, although it’s certainly something to keep an eye on moving forward.

Tee and Serve Tips – New Review

26th September 2019

We are starting a new review today of one of the most promising tipsters we have seen in some time.

The published results show an average of over £800 profit per month to just £10 stakes for the last six months, which is quite incredible stuff.

With an ROI of 24% and a strike rate of 33%, the service is called “Tee and Serve Tips” and provides expert tips in golf and tennis.

Their tennis tips tend to focus on set betting, with a lot of 2-0 scorelines selected and doubles and trebles used for them. In terms of the golf they tend to concentrate on two- and three-ball betting but also have some outright tips. 

Here are the monthly totals – just look at the consistency!

– April: +£1061 profit
– May: +£1040 profit
– June: +£971 profit
– July: +£770 profit
– August: +£777 profit
– September (so far): +£217 profit

Given those results the service is proving very popular. So popular in fact when they launched earlier this week, the order form actually broke the demand was so high!

Will those results hold up under a live trial? Well we’re about to find out! If they do it really would be something special.

So let’s see if they can keep serving up those profits…we will update results here regularly so you can see how things are going.

In the meantime you can check out Tee and Serve Tips for yourself here. 

 

 

 

 

NHL Tips

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

Not much change for the NHL Betting Master lately, with a small loss of 1 point made since our last update at the end of May. 

That means they are now 3 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time we want to wait until the NHL is back up and running before judging this service because at the moment they are betting on other leagues in places like Russia and Belarus but are really just treading water. So we will continue to monitor and hopefully won’t have to wait too much longer for the NHL to return. 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

30th May 2020

There has been somewhat of a retreat for the NHL Betting Master over the last month, with a loss of 23 points made since our last update.

That means they are now 2 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Although they initially did very well tipping in other leagues whilst the NHL has been in lockdown, that has recently gone the other way and now they’re pretty much back where they started in mid-March. 

It’s probably best to reserve judgement until the NHL is up and running again and they can get back to their bread and butter, as it were.

On that front a firm date for the league’s return has not been confirmed yet, but with full training camps not due to return until at least 1st July it looks like we are in for a bit of a wait in any event. 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

30th April 2020

A small dip for the NHL Betting Master since our last update, with a loss of 6 points made over the last month. 

That means he is now 21 points up for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

As mentioned previously, even though the NHL itself has been suspended, the NHL Betting Master is still using his knowledge of ice hockey to provide selections in other leagues such as Belarus and Russia which are continuing unabated for the time being.

There is no firm date for the return of the NHL yet, but the most aggressive possible timeline is 15th May for players to return to training, followed by some exhibition games in June and then the season to restart in July. As with most other sports, we’ll just have to wait and see whether that proves possible.

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

29th March 2020

The NHL Betting Master has continued its positive run, adding another 15 points profit since our last update just over a month ago. 

That means they are now 27 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Even though the NHL itself has been suspended, the NHL Betting Master is still using his knowledge of ice hockey to provide selections in other leagues such as Belarus and Russia and has been doing well in those leagues so far. 

How long those leagues continue remains to be seen but the for the time being it’s good that he has been able to find some profit from them whilst they are still in action.

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

23rd February 2020

The NHL Betting Master has managed to turn things around nicely, with a profit of 22 points made since our last update a month ago. 

That means they are now 12 points up for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

The nice thing about this service is that it’s very easy to follow with just one bet per day on average and you can use Betfair to often beat the advised prices. 

Let’s see if the recent run of positive form continues.

NHL Betting Master – Results Update

23rd January 2020

It’s been a rough old time lately for the NHL Betting Master, with all of his previous gains for our trial wiped out over the last month or so unfortunately. 

With a loss of 52 points since our last update, he is now 10 points down for our trial overall.

Hopefully this is just a blip and he will get back on track as it did look like a very promising service. We will see…

It’s a very easy service to follow with just one bet per day and the results so far have been very encouraging so we are hopeful this is going to be a really top service. Early days yet obviously but the signs are good.

NHL Betting Master – New Review

25th November 2019

With the legalization of betting in some American states you are starting to see more US sports tipsters popping up, which is encouraging to see. 

Up until now though we haven’t come across any good ones, or any good enough to pass a trial here at Honest Betting Reviews in any event. 

However, that might be about to change with the latest service we are going to take a look at, namely the NHL Betting Master.

The results for the last year during which they have been proofing to Betting Gods look fantastic and we have been following the tips for the last few weeks and been very impressed too. 

Over the last 12 months they have made £3,194 profit to £10 stakes and made an average monthly profit of £266. That has equated to a more than trebling of the advised 100 point betting bank. 

Eleven out of twelve months so far have been profitable, which is obviously a superb level of consistency. 

The return on investment (ROI) is a whopping 35%, with a very high strike rate of 48%, which are some of the highest combined metrics we have seen from any tipster. 

Normally when you have a high strike rate approaching 50%, it is very tough to also achieve a high ROI because you are tipping at low odds, often around evens, where picking up value is tough. 

So typically you would see an ROI around 10% if a tipster had a strike rate around 50%. Somehow though this tipster has managed to hit achieve over 30%, which is quite remarkable. 

Like we say we’ve been following the tips since early November and have been mighty impressed. Not just with the profits made (over £200 to £10 stakes), but the consistency and the ease of following, with just one bet per day normally and being able to place them on Betfair – where we’ve often been able to beat the advised odds. 

Of course it’s very early days so we shouldn’t get carried away and that’s exactly where our review comes in – to look at the longer-term performance. 

So we will kick off the review formally today, although will record results from when we started receiving tips on 9th November.  

As you can probably tell we are quite excited about this one given the overall package; let’s hope they can deliver the same kind of consistency during our trial – and beyond.

We have extended the review here to allow for covid-19 but will be looking to wrap it up shortly. Let’s see if they can have a late burst and get into profit for our trial.

The Bookie Smasher – Results Update

28th May 2020

Not a great deal of movement lately for multi-sports tipster The Bookie Smasher, with just a small profit of 2 points made since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 29 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

With German football back they have been providing a few tips from the Bundesliga which have been doing pretty well so hopefully with the return of more of the top leagues over the next month that should provide more opportunities for them to move things forward.

The Bookie Smasher – Results Update

25th April 2020

Not much change for multi-sports tipster The Bookie Smasher lately, with a small profit of 3 points made since our last update a month ago.

That means they are now 31 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

They are still managing to provide tips on a regular basis, mainly on e-sports and football, which is quite an achievement given how little sport is on at the moment. 

The good news is that the Bundesliga is due to recommence on 9th May with other leagues possibly later in May and into June. So we may have football back in just a couple of weeks, in a limited form at least. 

Hope you are managing to stay safe and well in the meantime.

The Bookie Smasher – Results Update

25th March 2020

A small loss for multi-sports tipster The Bookie Smasher in recent times, with 9 points dropped since our last update in mid-February. 

That means they are now 34 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

The Bookie Smasher is one of the very few tipsters still providing selections, offering tips in e-sports and the little bit of football still going on. We aren’t sure how much longer that will be viable but if they can find a bit of value here and there then good on them. 

Either way let’s hope for a move in the right direction by the time of our next update – whenever that ends up being.

The Bookie Smasher – Results Update

12th February 2020

Multi-sports tipster The Bookie Smasher is struggling to get going in our trial so far, with a further 20 points lost since our last update a month ago. 

That means they are now 25 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

As mentioned last time there are a huge number of tips, with 450 bets advised for our trial so far. These come in a variety of sports and leagues so following the service does take a bit more work than most. Hopefully they can start producing the results to make that extra work worthwhile.

14th January 2020

It’s been a quiet start to our trial of The Bookie Smasher, with a small loss of 5 points made so far after just over one month. 

You can view full results here.

The bet volume is quite high with over 200 tips advised so far and they come in a variety of sports including football, ice hockey, basketball and darts. Most of the selections are in the major leagues but a few are a bit more obscure so take a little longer to find the markets.

Anyway, as we say a pretty even start to our trial, let’s see how they’re doing in a month’s time.

The Bookie Smasher – New Review

10th December 2019

Today we are starting a review of an interesting new tipster who tips in multiple sports and has the encouraging title of “The Bookie Smasher.”

We hope that name proves appropriate over the course of our review and beyond, but looking at their published record the title might not be out of place. 

Since starting up in May they have made over 130 points profit, all to one point level stakes. That equates to over £1,300 to £10 stakes or £3,250 to £25 stakes. 

The strike rate is exceptionally high at 62% and since May the longest losing run has been just 6 bets and the highest drawdown on the bank has been just under 15pts (where as the longest winning run has been 17 bets). So these results look ideal if you are searching for a consistent tipster who regularly finds winners and has manageable staking.

Even with such a high strike rate the ROI is also solid at over 11%, which is good to see. 

As ever with Betting Gods tipsters you can get a 7 day trial for just £1 to check out the service and see if it is right for you.

Tips are provided across a huge spectrum of sports from football and tennis to badminton and volleyball, which is an unusual approach as most tipsters usually just concentrate on one or two sports. 

However, there are some very good multi-sport tipsters out there like Betting Bias and Sports Spread Betting, so we know it can be done to make a profit betting in multiple different sports. 

Whether it proves to be the case for this tipster we will have to wait and see but certainly the published results to date look very promising. 

So we will kick off a review today and report back in around a month on how things are going. 

In the meantime you can check out The Bookie Smasher for yourself here.

 

 

 

 

 

always back winners

Always Back Winners – Results Update

Horse racing tipster Always Back Winners has got back in action following the restart of racing and has got back to winning ways too, with 9 points profit made at advised prices since racing resumed.

That means they are now 58 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they haven’t done quite as well but are still ahead, with 5 points profit made since our last update and 18 points profit made for our trial overall.

They have been taking quite a selective approach with just a few bets advised since racing resumed, which seems like a sensible approach to give the form a chance to settle down.

Always Back Winners – Results Update

24th March 2020

A small dip in form for horse racing service Always Back Winners recently, with a loss of 12 points at advised prices since our last update.

But they are still 49 points up for our trial overall at advised prices.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP they have lost 15 points since our last update but are 13 points up for our trial overall.

There is obviously no UK racing until May (at the earliest) so there are no selections for the time being as they do not tip in Irish racing. Let’s hope they can kick on once UK racing does resume.

Always Back Winners – Results Update

10th February 2020

It’s been a good time recently for all-weather horse racing specialist Always Back Winners, with 49 points profit made at advised prices since our last update.

That means they are now 61 points up for our trial overall at advised prices. 

You can view full results here.

There is a little bit of a gap opening up between the advised price results and those at Betfair SP, with the latter having made 37 points profit since our last update and 28 points profit for our trial overall. That’s still a decent amount to have made at Betfair SP though, especially considering the staking is reasonable at an average of one point each way per bet.

Good to see the positive form recently, let’s hope it continues.

You can view full results here.

At Betfair SP it’s been a little slower but still in positive territory, with 6 points profit made for our trial after one month.

It’s quite a selective service with just one bet per day but that careful approach seems to be paying dividends for them, let’s see if it continues.

Always Back Winners – New Review

12th November 2019

Today we are starting a new trial of a horse racing service called Always Back Winners.

This is a service that focuses on flat racing, having made a profit in each of the three past flat turf seasons with reported totals of:

  • – 2017 – +231pts (to 1pt EW)
  • – 2018 – +125pts (to 1pt EW)
  • – 2019 – +90pts (to 1pt EW)

With the flat turf season having come to an end they are now turning their attention to the all weather racing over the Winter.  

That has got off to a good start too, with winners at 20/1 and 16/1 already after just one month and an ROI  of over 76% so they are in red hot form. 

They provide around 6-10 bets per week, all at north of 8/1 looking for a win strike rate in excess of 12% and a place in excess of 40% to generate long term profits.

In terms of a betting bank they advise backing between 1.25% and 2.5% EW of the available bank, which seems reasonable to us given the results achieved to date and the odds tipped at.

They tend to specialise in the the Class 3, 4 & 5 races where gambling stables like a touch or where improving horses can be ‘under the radar’ as far as being tipped by the general scribes or press who concentrate on higher class racing.

From our understanding they are a trusted site and have been around for a while, so it looks like a decent service all round and we are looking forward to running a live trial of their tips. 

We started receiving tips on Friday 8th November so will start recording results from then and will update progress here during the review.

In the meantime you can check out Always Back Winners for yourself here.

US Racing Expert – Results Update

The fightback has continued for horse racing tipster the US Racing Expert, with another 37 points profit made at advised prices since our last update. 

That means he is now just 23 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

We have crunched the numbers on the Tote SP results as well and he is 46 points down on that front for our trial overall, so it looks like taking advised prices is the best option, other than perhaps when the odds are 20/1 or above. A couple of the recent winners were at odds of 28 and 23 at advised prices but 51 and 54 at the US Tote, so quite big differences. Below the 20/1 level though it is clear that taking advised prices has a clear advantage. 

Anyway, let’s hope the comeback continues and by the time of our next update he will have moved into profit for our trial.

US Racing Expert – Results Update

23rd May 2020

Things have turned around fairly dramatically for the US Racing Expert recently, with a profit of 47 points made since our last update just under a month ago.

With the previous losses however, he is still 60 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Hopefully he can keep up the recent positive momentum and get towards scratch for our trial. Still a way to go to get to that point but at least things are moving in the right direction now and those who joined the service just recently are probably enjoying the form of the last few weeks.

US Racing Expert – Results Update

28th April 2020

Horse racing has been continuing in the USA, which is good news for those of us who like a punt and are missing the top quality action that would normally be going on in the UK and Ireland right now. 

For the US Racing Expert, unfortunately even though racing has continued, their fortunes haven’t turned around with another 8 points lost since our last update.

That means they are now 107 points down for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Unfortunately that represents more than the entire recommended betting bank of 100 points, so it is safe to say it has been a fairly disastrous trial. 

On a more positive note we have come across a couple of promising US racing tipsters so will be looking to get reviews of those going shortly. 

For this tipster though sadly it looks like the writing is on the wall. 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

US Racing Expert – Results Update

26th March 2020

The tough times continue for the US Racing Expert unfortunately, with a loss of a further 18 points since our last update.

That means they are now 99 points down for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

Sadly that represents just about the entire recommended betting bank of 100 points, so they are very nearly wiped out. 

They are one of the few tipsters still going at the moment as racing continues over in the US, but for how long it remains to be seen.  Either way they need to turn things around quickly and get going in the right direction. 

 

 

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

US Racing Expert – Results Update

4th February 2020

It’s been a disastrous start to our trial of the US Racing Expert unfortunately. After just over a month of following the tips, they are 81 points down to US Tote prices (SP). 

You can view full results here.

At one stage however they had actually blown the entire recommended betting bank of 100 points, so things couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start really. It seems like an instance of “sods law” – everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.

We will follow the service for a little longer to see if it can turn things around but it looks like the writing is on the wall sadly.

US Racing Expert – New Review

9th January 2020

Our friends from the good ol’ US of A are almost as keen on horse racing as us on this side of the pond, so it’s perhaps surprising there aren’t more US racing tipsters out there (or “cappers” as they would call them). 

We imagine this void will gradually get filled as more states in the US legalise gambling and it becomes part of everyday life as it is over here. 

In the meantime though there aren’t a great deal of tipsters to choose from, but the one we are starting a review of today looks pretty interesting. 

It’s called the US Racing Expert from the Betting Gods platform and tips are provided by a guy called James. 

He’s been a horse racing capper and writer for various publications in the US for several years now, and has proven himself to the Betting Gods team over recent months. He has written numerous blogs over at Betting Gods, including where he landed a $22,000 Kentucky Derby trifecta back in May!

From writing those blogs the Betting Gods team were impressed and asked him to proof his tips for US racing to them over a period of six months to see if he could generate a consistent profit. 

He certainly managed to do that, netting just under £2,000 profit to £10 stakes, with an excellent ROI of 37% and growing the betting bank by nearly 200%. 

The strike rate was good at 20% and the really good news is that all bets can be placed at the US tote, which is available at Betfair and most bookies so you don’t need to worry if your accounts have been restricted. 

The other nice thing about US racing is that it gives you something else to potentially enjoy once the UK and Irish racing is finished for the day. 

Anyway, we started receiving tips on 30th December so we will record results from then and will update how things are going here as the trial progresses.

In the meantime you can check out the US Racing Expert for yourself here.

Trade On Sports – Results Update

A slight step backwards for Trade on Sports’ HT Overs Bot over the past couple of months, with a loss of £260 made since our last update.

With the excellent previous results however, they are still £6,360 up for our trial overall.

You can view full results for this here.

Automated trading of the bot via BF Bot Manager is due to be available by July, so we look forward to that being set up. 

Just a reminder that the HT Overs Bot is available with the Silver Football membership.

There is a lot more besides just the bot with Trade on Sports across their various memberships however, including:-

  • – Tennis lay bets that have made +84.93 pts with an 8.89% Return on Investment
  • – NFL bets: 327 Bets: staked 327 Pts, +72.12 pts, 22.05% ROI
  • – NHL: 186 Bets: Staked 152.79 pts, +16.57 pts, 10.84% ROI
  • – MLB: 126 Bets: Staked 82.32 pts, +16.77 pts, 20.37% ROI
  • – Football: 662 Bets: Staked 662 pts, +27.28 pts, 4.12% ROI

You can check out TOS’s full prospectus here.

With more football leagues coming back all the time there will be lots more action for TOS now and hopefully the Bot will pick up the pace again.

Trade On Sports – Results Update

10th April 2020

Just a small gain for Trade on Sports’ HT Overs Bot recently, with a profit of £80 made since our last update a month ago. 

That means the Bot is now £6,600 up for our trial overall.

You can view full results for this here.

There have been no selections since 11th March with football having stopped obviously. There are reports of some European leagues planning restarts in May/June, which would be great if true but we will wait and see. The Premier League clubs would apparently lose £750m in revenue by not finishing the season so will obviously be doing everything they can to complete the season, presuming they can do so safely of course. 

What joy and excitement there will be when football finally does return though, whenever that ends up being! 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

4th March 2020

Another quiet month for Trade on Sports, with a loss of £40 made to £100 stakes since our last update. 

That means the Bot is now £6,520 up for our trial overall at £100 stakes.

You can view full results for this here.

We are awaiting news of the automation which would be a very welcome addition to the service and make things easier for subscribers. 

In the meantime let’s hope things kick on this month and we make some decent profits. 

 

 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

5th February 2020

A quiet month for the Trade On Sports HT Overs Bot, with a small loss of £120 made to £100 stakes since our last update. 

With the previous gains made however, the Bot is still £6,560 up for our trial overall to £100 stakes. 

You can view full results for this here.

(Please note signing up to the Silver football membership will give you access to the HT Overs Bot, plus other features).

There are some very exciting developments going on aswell, with the Trade on Sports team looking at automating the Bot selections – and the tennis bets – via BF Bot Manager. 

If that works it would be a great addition to the service in terms of both saving time and making sure you don’t miss any alerts, as they can come in at all times of day and night. They are aiming to have a live version available in early March so watch this space.

We mentioned last time about the pre-match trading alerts and those are now coming through. Basically they alert you to where the odds of a team may drift or come in a few ticks before kick-off. We haven’t been able to track these alerts unfortunately as a large number come in, again at all different times.

However, it is worth bearing in mind if you are going to follow them that you need a pretty big bank as trading £100 for each game for example would only give you a few quid profit per trade, so to make it worthwhile (or comparable to profits from the HT Overs Bot at least), you would probably need to stake around £1,000+ per game. And if there are a few alerts coming in at around the same time, then clearly you need a decent amount available in your Betfair account to cover them all.

If you are going to follow the pre-match trades, whatever you do make sure you don’t allow your bet to go in-play! The last thing you would want is to risk losing the whole stake for the sake of £10-£20 profit. 

Anyway, good to see lots of new developments happening with Trade On Sports and things are looking very positive for the future.

Trade On Sports – Results Update

6th January 2020

The Trade On Sports HT Overs Bot finished 2019 in style, adding another £660 profit since our last update a month ago. 

That means the Bot is now £6,680 up to £100 stakes for our trial overall. 

You can view full results for this here.

As you may have seen, Trade On Sports scooped the award for Best (Other) Sports Service 2019 in our recent Members’ Choice Awards and the HT Overs Bot has been the bedrock of their success.

However, there are quite a few other elements to Trade On Sports’ service, including a pre-match trading tool which is about to start sending alerts for matches to trade (like the HT Bot), other football trading alerts, tennis trades and tips for US Sports. We haven’t been able to track the results for all of these as have been concentrating on the HT Overs Bot but we are sure these elements all offer value as well. 

As we say the pre-match trading alerts are due to be introduced shortly so hopefully we will be able to include news on those in our next update.

Trade On Sports – Results Update

4th December 2019

Trade on Sports’ HT Overs Bot bounced back in tremendous fashion in November, amassing just under £1,000 profit since our last update. 

That means the Bot is now £6,020 up to £100 stakes for our trial overall (or 60 points up to 1 point level stakes). 

You can view full results for this here.

The last couple of months have been very instructive as to the value of adopting a long-term mindset in betting. In October there was a drawdown of £760 at one point which was tough to take, particularly if you had just joined the service. There was a drop-off in memberships at that point as some people obviously could not handle the losing streak and gave up.

However, those who stuck around were richly rewarded as things got back to winning ways in November, with those losses more than recouped and more profits made so far in December. 

The service has proved itself conclusively with over a year’s proofed results in our review comprising over 850 trades. Inevitably there will be occasional losing streaks as with any system but if you can adopt a long-term mindset and learn to handle the drawdowns the rewards have been tremendous.

One thing to ask yourself if you are getting really anxious and upset during a drawdown is whether you are staking too much money on each selection. A run of 5-10 losers in the course of a couple of weeks is possible – indeed likely – in just about any system and if you staking sensibly it should not bother you at all. 

For our part we would recommend a 30-50 point bank if following the service, so for example if you have a £1,000 starting bank that would mean risking £33.33 per trade if operating on a 30-point basis. 

As we say, with sensible staking like this a few losers now and then should be water off a duck’s back and not bother you at all. 

Another possible approach would be to stake a fixed percentage of your bank on each selection, e.g. 2-3%. We haven’t crunched the numbers on this but expect you would now be sitting on an extremely tidy profit, well above the amount for level staking we have used for our review. 

Anyway, just a few thoughts from us on how to approach things but the main point is that results have been excellent for this service and the odd drawdown now and then is to be expected and successful traders/gamblers don’t let it affect them.

Trade On Sports – Results Update

1st November 2019

It’s been a rare losing month for Trade on Sports‘ HT Overs Bot, with 4 points lost since our last update. 

With the positive results previously, they are still 51 points up for our trial overall (or £5,080 up using £100 flat stakes). 

You can view full results for this here.

As we say, it’s rare for the Bot to have a losing month so it’s come as a bit of a shock for members, but a reminder that having a large enough starting bank to withstand the losing runs and some patience is important when following any system. 

They recommend a £5,000 bank if you are betting at £100 stakes so in that context if you joined at the start of October although you would be over £400 down that would still represent less than 10% of the bank which is a small amount in the grand scheme of things. 

Anyway, let’s hope October was just a blip and they’ll be back to winning ways in November. 

 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

1st October 2019

Yet another good month for Trade on Sports’ HT Overs Bot, with an additional 6 points profit (or £640 profit to £100 stakes) made since our last update.

That means they are now 55 points up for our trial overall (or £5,520 up using £100 flat stakes).

You can view full results for this here.

We have now been following the HT Overs Bot for a full year and the results have been excellent. We often say the holy grail of betting is consistency and the Bot has demonstrated remarkable consistency over the past year, steadily churning out the profits month after month. You can’t ask for much more really, with over five grand profit made from £100 stakes. It is one of the best footy betting/trading tools we have come across in some time. 

Last time we mentioned the pre-match trading tool. We have followed a few of the live webinars with Pete which have been interesting, although there are a very low number of trades indicated from them – often just one or two, which isn’t really enough action in itself. Those with the time to use the tool themselves could find more trades of course, but it would be good if this could be turned into an alert service as well given that it works so well for the HT Overs Bot.

We will see what other things the team at Trade on Sports develop in the coming months, as it’s really a treasure trove of information and we feel the more of it they can automate for members the better.

 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

2nd September 2019

It’s been another good month for Trade on Sports’ HT Overs Bot, with an additional 6 points profit made since our last update.

That means the Bot is now 49 points up for our trial overall (or £4,880 up to £100 stakes).

You can view full results for this here.

Although the overall results were very good, it was actually a very up and down month with a run of seven consecutive losers early on in the month – the most the bot has had since starting up – followed by 12 straight winners. There was then another bad run over the weekend which just dragged the results down a bit unfortunately. 

Overall though you have to say the results have been excellent with nearly £5,000 profit made since we started following the bot.

Some people have asked about the Quick Response bot but our analysis suggests it is not profitable to lay the draw with. It might be profitable to use it in the same way as the HT Overs Bot (i.e. backing another goal at 1.6), but there isn’t enough data on that to draw any conclusions yet.  

We are also starting to investigating their pre-match trading tool which looks quite interesting so will report more on that in our next update.

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

3rd August 2019

It’s been an excellent month for Trade On Sports’ HT Overs Bot, with another 9 point profit made since our last update.

That means they are now 43 points up for our trial overall (or £4,280 up at £100 stakes). 

You can view full results for this here.

These results are based on odds of 1.6 at 65 minutes, although the average seems to have been trending a little lower than that lately, but either way the results have been very good and solidly consistent throughout our trial. 

With a high strike rate of 72%, this is proving to be a top system for betting on football in-play and long may it continue. 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

2nd July 2019

It’s been a quiet month for the Trade On Sports Overs Bot, not surprisingly with very little football on at the moment. 

Since our last update the bot has made just one point profit, putting it 34 points up for our trial overall (or £3,440 up to £100 stakes).

You can view full results for this here.

As mentioned last time, the odds of overs in a number of the games selected by the bot is quite low these days, often around 1.16 at HT, meaning by 65 mins (when entering the bet) the odds are often lower than 1.6.

So whilst we have been using average odds of 1.6 to record results, the actual average may be closer to 1.55, which would mean the total profit for the bot during our trial would be around 25 points. Either way though that is still a very nice amount of profit with such a high strike rate (around 70%) so you can’t complain.

Of the other bots they are testing, the HT 2 Ahead looks the most promising from what we can tell, with around 26 points profit made so far if backing two more goals at 61 minutes.

Trade On Sports have some live webinars planned soon to demonstrate some of their live trading and explain how some of the tools on their platform work, so those should be interesting. 

We will report back on how they go, together with how the bots are doing, in our next update.

 

 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

5th June 2019

It’s been an excellent month for the Trade On Sports Overs Bot since our last update, with another 9 points profit made. 

That means the bot is now an estimated* 33 points up for our trial overall (or £3,320 to £100 stakes).

You can view full results for this here.

*We say “estimated” because essentially we are using a best guess of what the average odds of over 1.5 goals at 65 minutes are in the selected matches.

As alerts come in at all times of day and night it has not been possible to track the odds live, so we have had to do our best to estimate what that average odds would be.

Up until now we have assumed 1.6, but after tracking more of the odds live lately we believe the average may be closer to 1.55. 

There are a number of Dutch matches and selections from high-scoring leagues where the odds are quite a bit below 1.6 at 65 minutes. 

So if you took the average odds at 65 minutes to be 1.55 then the overall results would be 24 points up rather than 33. 

That is still very good going whichever way you look at it though and with the high strike rate of around 70% this has been a very consistent and impressive performer. 

Some people take a different approach and just request odds of 1.6 and then leave the bet to either be matched or not, which would mean some of the results recorded as winners on our spreadsheet would not have been matched – and conversely some recorded as voided would have been winners. Overall it would probably even itself out so we doubt the results would be very different doing it that way. 

Anyway, they have also been testing some additional bots which have recorded some very promising results so we expect them to go live shortly.

Their bots operate in the Summer leagues as well so there are still alerts coming through, although of course not as many as during the main season as there are fewer fixtures. 

 

 

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

3rd May 2019

More profits for Trade on Sports’ main Overs Bot, with another 2 points profit made since our last update a month ago.

That means the Overs Bot is now 24 points up (or £2,360 up to £100 stakes) for our trial overall.*

You can view full results for this here.

The results on our spreadsheet are for backing the bot’s selections at 65 mins at average odds of 1.6, although there are other ways you could trade the selections (e.g. dripping them at 45, 60 and 75 mins). Some members have studied the different ways of following the bot and it appears the option we have recorded of backing at 65 mins is the most profitable.

There are also some other bots in beta mode which are showing a lot of promise, one which is over 50 points up and another two which are more than 20 points up each, so these are looking very good indeed.

Just to clarify that with the “bots” they have developed you still have to place the bets yourself, it is just that the bots are scanning the markets to find the opportunities.

Perhaps at some stage in the future they will have an auto-trade option, but for the time being you get the live alerts via the Telegram messenger app, which is straightforward to set up and follow, and then place the bets yourself.

All in all then we are really liking the look of Trade On Sports so far and think this is a very promising service. 

 

*Correction – please note this previously stated the total profit was 25 points but there were a couple of errors in our spreadsheet that have now been corrected.

 

 

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Trade On Sports – Results Update

4th April 2019

We have been taking a look at Trade On Sports for a while now and there is a lot to take in about the service. 

They have a whole variety of features you can use, including:

  • – Stats Databases 
  • – Chat Rooms
  • – Bets in a variety of sports including tennis, NHL, NBA and more
  • – Live in-play alerts for football
  • – Prematch to inplay stats
  • – And more besides

It can be a little overwhelming at first and difficult to know where to start.

However, the main feature at the moment in our opinion is their live “GameState Bot” which gives alerts at HT in football matches where it expects at least one more goal.

This has been operating since the start of October and has made substantial profit since starting up.

There are different ways you can follow the alerts, but it seems the most profitable is to put in a bet at the next goal up (so if it is 1-0 at HT, to back over 1.5 goals) at odds of 1.6, which on average gets matched at around the 65th minute if there are no goals up to that point. 

Following this method has produced over 22 points profit (or £2200 to £100 flat stakes), which is pretty good going. 

You can view full results for this here.

They have a number of other bots in live beta testing which are showing promise. One in particular involves betting that there will be at least one first half goal and has already amassed over 50 points profit. 

There are also tennis bets sent out each day for players to lay and back and these are around 15 points up for the year so far.

Overall then we have been quite impressed with Trade On Sports so far. The TOS Gamestate Bot has delivered very good profits so far and there is lots of potential in their other strategies under development. 

It still feels a little like a work in progress rather than the finished article, but the service certainly seems to be going in the right direction.

Trade On Sports – New Review

25th February 2019

Recently we have been spending more time looking at trading services rather than just tipsters and betting systems.

That’s because increasingly we are seeing that trading offers some advantages over traditional forms of betting.

Firstly, trading normally involves using the exchanges rather than the bookies, thus offering an attractive option for those who have had their bookie accounts restricted.

Secondly, with pre-event betting it can be difficult to find an edge with markets being so efficient these days. But once you go in-running, events can unfold in fast and unpredictable ways, offering the potential for the shrewd trader to find value by reacting quickly to how things are changing.

Thirdly – and in a related way – prices can fluctuate wildly in-running, meaning there is the potential to capitalise on these swings and make a decent profit from well-executed trades.

So with those advantages in mind we are looking at a relatively new but promising trading service called Trade On Sports.

The site is co-run by the respected Pete Nordsted, who some of you may know from his previous ventures including Premier Betting and numerous books on gambling he has published. 

Together with some professional traders Pete has put together a range of resources for sports trading.

At the moment Trade on Sports covers 3 services:

• Trade on Tennis
• Trade on Football
• Ratings & Bets

You can join each service separately or you can join the Platinum service and receive everything. As a member you get access to a wealth of data and statistics via their apps, chat groups on Telegram and alerts for in-play trades on the relevant sports covered. 

We have been following the service in a personal capacity for a while so decided it was about time we got a formal review going to record some of our findings and results.

Apparently they have some new software in the works for tennis trading so hopefully that will be available soon.

In the meantime though there is lots for us to get our teeth stuck into for the purposes of the review.

We will report back here soon with our initial findings on the trading services on offer and results achieved. 

In the meantime you can check out Trade On Sports here.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Results Update

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor is a share tipping service provided by two brothers, David and Tom Gardner. It is one of the best known stock picking services in the world and has been running for nearly 20 years. We have been following the service for over three years now here at HBR. 

Even with the market crash experienced over the last couple of months due to coronavirus, they have still managed to add more growth since our last update, with a further 89% growth in the recommended stocks. 

That means the stocks have grown a combined 2,816% for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

It’s testament to their stock picking skills that their picks have still managed to hold up in the current market conditions, with their selections over the last year alone up a combined 82%. 

There may be more turbulent times to come for the stock market but the Motley Fool’s ethos of buying and holding for the long term has certainly produced stellar results over the past twenty years despite all the market’s ups and downs. 

It’s great credit to them and why they remain one of the most popular share tipping services in the world.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

14th November 2019

It’s now been a full three years since we joined the Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor service and a year since we last did an update so we are well overdue a report on progress.

Once again we can say the performance has been amazing, with a further 1159% growth made since our last update and 2727% growth of the recommended stocks for our trial overall. 

You can view full results here.

Those results are quite phenomenal and as we have said before, the best of any stock-picking service we have seen. 

It’s interesting that the results from the two brothers David and Tom have been almost identical for the period of our review, with David having made 1377% profit and Tom having made 1338% profit. Although over the whole history of the service David’s results have been better (an average gain of 518% for David on each share recommended versus 153% for Tom), it appears Tom may be catching up. 

The only slight negative is that this year hasn’t been quite as good for them, with the stocks recommended in 2019 actually down a cumulative 53%. However, many of those recommendations are only a few months old and the average holding time is recommended to be 3-5 years, so it may just be the case that these recent ones need time to play out. 

In any event the overall performance of the service as we say has been superb so we’ll continue to monitor it and let’s see what the next three years bring!

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

9th October 2018

It has now been almost two years since we started following the Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor service and what a two years it has been!

Their total stock picks combined are now up an amazing 1569% since we started following them in November 2016. 

You can view full results here.

(Please note on the results spreadsheet we haven’t included the names of the stocks recommended to avoid giving away their picks for free).

To put the results another way, if you had bought $1000 worth of each stock recommendation they have made since November 2016, you would currently be over $156,000 up! 

Now to do that you would have had to invest $47,000 in buying the 47 stocks they have recommended over the last couple of years, which of course not everyone has just lying around. 

But even if you had bought just $100 of every stock they had recommended, you would still be over $15,600 up, which is pretty awesome. 

Some shares do cost more than $100 each of course, but there are other options for that such as using a spread betting account.

Anyway, the bottom line is the results have been quite amazing and this is the best stock picking service we have ever come across. 

These are not penny stocks they are selecting either that can surge or crash on a whim, they are virtually all multi-billion dollar companies that are stable and you can actually achieve the prices they recommend to buy the stock at. 

There is also lots to learn across the Motley Fool platform and a great deal of wisdom about how to approach long term investing. 

We will continue to follow this just because it is doing so well we want to see where it ends up and if they can continue to achieve such amazing results. They have been doing so for over 20 years so let’s hope they can.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

14th February 2018

It’s been a while since we updated our review of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor so we thought it was high time we brought you some news.

And we are pleased to say we have good news to report – very good news in fact.

Since we started following the service back in November 2016, they have amassed an incredible 611% profit from their stock picks. 

You can view full results here.

Those gains are outstanding and as we have said before, this is the best stock-picking service we have ever come across.

In terms of the records of the two brothers who provide the picks – David and Tom Gardner – their records since November 2016 are as follows: David is 347% up and Tom is 264% up.

That kind of fits with the long-term pattern, with David having achieved an average gain on his picks since the service started of 487% versus Tom’s 133%. In fact you could say Tom has been outperforming his overall record lately.

Either way though, they have both done fantastically well.

There is also so much useful information on the website to learn from. We enjoy in particular David Gardner’s podcasts for his Rule Breakers service, which is very educational as you can understand more about the thinking that goes behind his picks and why he has been so successful.  

Anyway, we will report back again in a couple of months’ time to see if their impressive results continue.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

27th July 2017

It’s been a while since we updated our review of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor so we thought it was high time we brought you some news.

And we are pleased to report that the news is good – very good in fact.

Since we joined the main Motley Fool Stock Advisor last November, they are an astounding 207% up on their stock picks.

You can view full results here.

Now we can’t include the names of the stocks here because as the Motley Fool is a long-term service where you generally hold stocks for 3-5 years or even longer, that would be giving away their picks for free.

But rest assured these results are fully accurate and verified.

And it is worth pointing out that unlike some other share tipping services, you can generally get the price they recommend the stock at with no problems at all.

This is primarily because they are picking big, multi-billion dollar companies whose prices are not going to be affected by the followers of the Motley Fool all buying shares at the same time. Plus they give out the stock tips with the live current price, rather than “this is the price I bought it at a week ago” which has now gone up 20% by the time you hear about it.

As we mentioned last time, we also signed up to the Rule Breakers service that is run by David Gardner. That is also up an astonishing 218% this year, simply fantastic results.

The UK version, Share Advisor, is around break even for the year. We have stopped following the Income Investor because it is too long-term a service to be worth reviewing here – it is the kind of thing you do to set up an income for yourself in retirement.

All in all though we think the main Stock Advisor and Rule Breaker services are fantastic and without doubt the best stockmarket services we have come across.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

20th March 2017

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor is a legendary stock-picking service run by two brothers, David and Tom Gardner. 

In this fast-paced, action-packed world we live in, Tom and David take a rather contrary approach to investing and look to hold stocks for a long time rather than profit from day-trading or quick swings in prices.

When they say a long time, they mean a period of around 5-10 years, which is like an eternity in the modern world of super-fast trading.

However, their approach has been phenomenally successful, with winners such as Amazon (up 500-fold since they originally recommended it), Netflix (up over 7,000%), Priceline (up over 7,000%) and many more fantastic winners.

Now given their investing timeframes, we can’t really do our normal results spreadsheet as that would give things away and you could just use that to buy their recommended stocks rather than signing up to the service.

What we can say though is that their stock picks are up a combined 70% since we joined in November, a pretty awesome total.

In that time there have been nine picks, with one of those picks up 40%.

We have to say we are absolutely loving this service and think it is without doubt the best stock-picking service we have ever come across.

The depth of knowledge, the quality of the analysis, the presentation of the website, but most of all – the results – are superb.

As we said below in our introduction back in November, imagine if you had bought just $1,000 of Amazon shares back when David originally recommended it. You would now have shares worth over half a million dollars!

And you would have had some other fantastic gains as well.

We are enjoying this so much we have signed up to three of their other services:

  • Rule Breakers – a service run by David Gardner that focuses on breakthrough tech companies he believes are poised for massive growth. Big winners to date include Netease (over 2,000% gain), Intuitive Surgical (over 1,400%) and Baidu (over 1,900%).
  • Income Investor – a service focused on creating an income through investing in shares that pay dividends.
  • Motley Fool UK – the British version of the site, which recommends UK companies to buy and has also had some decent results.

We will start including these services in our updates as well to give you a sense of how they are doing across some of their different services.

It is worth pointing out that you do need a decent bit of money to invest to make it worth signing up to these services – we would say at least ten thousand pounds, but maybe more like twenty-five thousand.

And of course you would need to have money to invest on an ongoing basis if you wanted to buy each of their monthly picks as well.  

If you do have some money to invest and are looking for a stock-picking service to follow, then certainly on the basis of what we have seen so far, the Motley Fool is looking very good.

 

 

 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Update

20th December 2016

It’s a bit early for a results update on the Motley Fool Stock Advisor service, as the picks take a long time to realise their full value, with the average holding time for a share being 3-5 years.

So we thought we would just do a quick update on how we have found the service so far.

Basically you normally receive one pick from each of the Gardner brothers, Tom and David, every month together with their reasoning for their pick.

I really like the detailed explanations for their stock picks. They are a mixture of sound reasoning as to why the particular company is expected to grow (and thus the share price should grow) and detailed (but not boring and overly-long) analysis of the numbers. 

You can see why they have made such incredible picks, like 500-bagger Amazon, 40-bagger Netflix and so on over the years.

On the website you can also look back at all their previous picks and the thinking behind them, which is interesting. Quite a lot of their predictions about how companies would grow have proved startlingly accurate!

There are David and Tom’s top 5 “Best Buys” now, plus their 15 “Starter Stocks” – the essential companies that embody David and Tom’s investing philosophies and the ones they think should form the basis of your portfolio. These are mainly big-name companies that we’ve all heard of and have been solid growth engines, with more expected.

In addition you will find other features on the site such as a community forum to discuss things with other members, plus a “scorecard” to track stocks you are interested in.

After signing up to the Stock Advisor service, you are hit with quite a lot of marketing to sign up to other Motley Fool services. Some of these actually look quite interesting, particularly the Rule Breakers and Options Trading services.

However, these are all considerably more expensive than the Stock Advisor service, which is a squeak at a mere $99 per year.

So overall our impressions of the service are very good so far. Obviously as we say only time will tell how they get on in the long term with their stock picks, but we will update things periodically on the progress being made.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – New Review

22nd November 2016

Among the many dozens of e-mails, adverts and requests we receive each week to look at betting and investment opportunities, occasionally one comes along that really sparks our interest.

This happened to us today when we came across an article talking about a stock recommended by a guy called David Gardner, who is the co-founder with his brother Tom of the popular Motley Fool share website.

The article went on to mention that David Gardner had a pretty decent record in his stock tips, having recommended Amazon back in 1997 (and again in 2002).

Now everyone knows that Amazon has grown massively as a company since those recommendations. But how much exactly?

Well, back in 1997, Amazon was worth around $1.50 per share. In 2002, it was around $15 per share. 

Guess what it is today? 

A whopping $785 per share.

Yep, that’s not a typo – it really is $785 per share.

That is pretty astonishing growth. And yet, back in 2002, most people would certainly have heard of Amazon, used its services and would have expected it to grow as a company.

But how many people actually bought some shares in it?

Well David Gardner did and now he’s sitting on a 500-bagger (i.e. a share that has grown 500-fold, or 50,000% since he bought it).

Intrigued by this, I started looking at some of the other recommendations made by David and his brother Tom in their Stock Advisor newsletter.

How about Netflix – advised in 2007 at $2.69 per share, now worth $118.

Or Nvidia, advised in 2005 at $7 a share and now worth $93. 

There is Priceline group, advised in 2004 at $23 and now worth $1,526.

Or Walt Disney, advised at $3 per share in 2002 and now worth $98. 

Some pretty astounding success stories there, any one of which could have made you pretty wealthy. Think if you had invested just $1,000 in Amazon when he recommended it in 2002, you would have made a cool half a million dollars. 

Looking at their overall record, obviously not every stock they pick is a winner and there have been some losers as well. 

But the beauty of this kind of investing is that you can afford a few losers if you have some shares that 10, 20, 50 or even 500-bag.

Indeed, David has averaged an incredible 300% profit for each of his stock picks whilst Tom has managed a very respectable 81%. 

And this isn’t one of those “throw enough stuff at the fan and some will stick” situations either. They tend to give out just one or two stock picks per month, so it is a very selective service and should be manageable in terms of running a portfolio based on their picks.

The other thing we like about this service is that these are all big companies they are investing in, not some fly-by-night penny share nonsense that you see ramped by the pump and dump merchants.

That means they shouldn’t suffer from some of the problems we have seen with other share services that recommended much smaller stocks, where they recommend a tip and then it has shot up in price by the time you get to buy it. 

We are quite excited about this service, as you can imagine. It takes the approach that we think is the correct one for investing in shares – buy and hold for at least 3-5 years.

The only negative we can see from looking at the results is that the recent results over the last couple of years aren’t quite as impressive as previous years, but then a lot of their really big wins took a few years to build, so this is perhaps understandable.

Anyway, we have signed up to their $99 per year subscription today and will be commencing a review.

Obviously given the nature of their approach, we will have to run the trial for longer than the normal three months and will aim to run it for a year.

In just a year we won’t see the kind of massive winners they have had, which as we say take many years of growth, but it should give us ample time to judge how the service works in practice and to see if it is worth carrying on with.

Just a final note to point out this is the US version of Motley Fool’s Stock Picks, as there are ones in other countries as well but it is the US one that we will be reviewing here. 

Onwards and upwards then – let’s hope they find the next Amazon!

Angel Business Club – Results Update

Risk warning While the content on the Angel Business Club website is for general information purposes only and does not form financial or professional advice, any investment opportunity on the Angel Business Club website carries a high degree of risk. Your capital is at risk which can include loss of investment and dilution, illiquidity, lack of dividends and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Any financial promotion contained on the Angel Business Club has been approved by Angel Corporate Finance Ltd; a firm authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK.

 

It’s been a few months since we updated our review of the Angel Business Club (ABC) so we thought a good time for an update given the hiatus in all things sporting-related at the moment. 

Just a reminder, the Angel Business Club is a facility whereby you pay a monthly membership fee and then receive free shares in a range of early-stage companies. It’s a bit like Dragons Den, apart from you don’t get to pick the companies, the Club does. 

The companies are varied and interesting, with everything from a healthy tonic company to a fire safety company to posh dog food! 

With the coronavirus crisis it’s obviously a very worrying time for all businesses, particularly start-ups and early stage businesses. Time will tell how it turns out for the companies in the ABC portfolio but let’s hope they make it through to the other side. 

There isn’t a great deal of news on the companies, other than that one went bust and is being restructured to start over when the covid-19 crisis is past. Some other companies seem to be making good progress, although as we say with the current economic crisis it is only sensible to be cautious in that regard.

Obviously it is also not the time to be doing stock market flotations or trade sales so we don’t have any clear results to report in terms of profit/losses banked. 

The good news however is that the Angel Business Club are offering free access to their weekly webinars, which are normally for paid members only. So you can check those out and get more info on the companies and what else is going on at the Club. 

You can sign up as a free member here.

Angel Business Club – Results Update

13th November 2019

It’s been a few months since we updated our review of the Angel Business Club (ABC) and in fact it’s been two full years now since we joined the club. 

Just a reminder, the Angel Business Club is a facility whereby you pay a monthly membership fee and then receive free shares in a range of early-stage companies. It’s a bit like Dragons Den, apart from you don’t get to pick the companies, the Club does. 

The companies are varied and interesting, with everything from a healthy tonic company to a fire safety company to posh dog food! 

Anyway, as we say we’ve been members for two years so you would think after that long we would have some concrete results to report. 

Well unfortunately – and those who have been following us in the long run will have heard this before – we still can’t report any clear results! 

That is because there haven’t been any exit opportunities like IPOs or trade sales of the companies in our portfolio, which is how you realise the investment you have made in the Club and potentially bank a profit (or a loss if a company happened not to have done well). Whilst there have been a couple of IPOs planned, they both fell through for one reason or another and no others are planned as far as we are aware. 

Now as mentioned below in our previous updates, you do have the option of selling your shares to other members on the ABC’s internal trading platform, although not all companies are tradeable on there (for example one of the companies has recently gone into voluntary liquidation so has been removed).

If you do sell shares on the platform however, you would generally be taking a loss on your shares so it is not recommended. Ultimately if you want to realise the full opportunity of the companies you will have to wait for the exit event in most cases. 

So needless to say the ABC is only a vehicle for people with a great deal of patience! You need to have a long-term mindset that it could take 5-10 years in many cases to see the companies go from early stage to actually float on the stock market or be bought out. 

That is all we can say at this stage really, we wish we had something more concrete to report in terms of results but that is the “nature of the beast” unfortunately. 

A quick word as well on Britannia’s Gold Ltd (BGL), one of the companies in our portfolio and one people could also invest in separately. There has been some positive news lately, in that they have been contracted by a third party to carry out a salvage operation on a vessel in the Pacific with a potentially large quantity of gold on board, which BGL would receive 12.5% of in addition to receiving a fee for doing the job. 

So if that came in it would provide a very nice dividend to shareholders and help to fund the mission on the Empress of Britain which is due to recommence next Spring. 

Here’s hoping anyway!

Angel Business Club – Results Update

3rd July 2019

It’s Dan here and I thought it would be a good time to do an update on the Angel Business Club after I attended their Global Convention last week in London.

I’ll start with the Convention and then move on to a wider update on how things are going.

 

Global Convention

The Convention was held at the Holiday Inn Kensington on 22nd June and it was a fantastic day. We got to hear a dozen presentations about all the promising companies that are part of the ABC platform and how they are progressing, which was very interesting. These included:

  • – A drinks company that is making healthy, natural drinks and is hoping to get listed in all the major UK supermarkets.
  • – A premium, high end dog-food company that looks set to break into America.
  • – A payment app that has signed a big deal with one of the world’s biggest credit card companies and has a number of other deals lined up.
  • – A breakthrough fire safety company that could revolutionise how fires are dealt with in the home and workplace

And there were so many more inspiring stories from companies that could not only be big successes but have a positive impact on the world.

It was also great to meet other members at the Convention and share their experiences of the Club. Not to mention we got lots of goodies, including (non-alcoholic) wine and soft drinks at our table and excellent food at the conference venue. Joao (the CEO of the ABC) and his team did a great job so hats off to them. It was such a success they have even booked in the event for next year already! 

 

Portfolio Update

There hasn’t been much change in our portfolio since our last update. We currently have 13 companies in our portfolio (plus an extra investment in Britannia’s Gold – but more on that below). The total we have paid via membership fees is €2,592 and that is also pretty much the estimated value of our portfolio according to the strike price values. 

In terms of the strike price values, we believe it would be beneficial for the Club to report how they arrive at their strike price valuations (with price/sales ratios etc) to increase transparency and accountability and have suggested this to them. 

As we remarked last time though, in the grand scheme of things the strike price values of the companies are something of a moot point until a company can either float on the stock market or is bought out (what is called a “trade sale”). 

You can sell shares via the ABC’s internal trading platform in the meantime if the companies are listed on the platform. Of the 13 companies in our portfolio, 11 are listed on the trading platform.

We stated in our last update that it is not always possible to sell shares on the platform. This is not quite correct – as long as the company is listed on the platform you can sell shares, although it will usually be at a significant discount to the strike price so is not advisable unless you really have to sell in order to release funds etc. It is better to wait for the exit events – an IPO or trade sale.

 

The IPOs That Weren’t

Talking of IPOs, one of the disappointing aspects of our time as a member has been that two IPOs were promised but then didn’t materialise, for one reason or another. 

One of the companies in question had raised funds from members on the basis that it was about to IPO but then chose not to list on the stock market, for its own reasons. Whilst it is always of course up to the company to decide how to proceed in these matters and to act in the best interests of the company and its shareholders, there were complaints about this at the Global Convention and we can understand why.

In our view if a company raises money on the basis that it plans to shortly IPO and then pulls it (with no date given for when it may IPO in future), it is understandable if people are frustrated and we hope this is just a one-off and isn’t repeated by the ABC.

In terms of the other IPO, it is hoped this will proceed later this year.

 

Britannia’s Gold

We reported last time that Britannia’s Gold (BGL) was embarking on its third attempt to salvage gold from a Wold War Two shipwreck. Well sadly it wasn’t successful in that attempt.

We received an update from Philip Reid, Chairman of BGL, at the Global Convention and he gave a rather reflective summary of the situation, remarking that the whole project had turned out to be far more challenging than they had ever envisaged and it would require significant additional funds and time to complete the current salvage. It has been a salutary lesson for all involved in just how difficult such salvage operations are – as Mr Reid commented “that’s why no-one else has done this.” Well, er, yes indeed!

Whilst this was disappointing news for investors, there is something to be said for Mr Reid’s honesty and now at least they have more realistic expectations of the time and effort involved in not just completing this salvage operation but any potential ones in future.  

All is not lost as they have the funds to head out to the vessel again and try to complete the salvage, whilst now having to split any proceeds 50% with another company. However, whilst there is still hope this could all turn out successfully, when taking into account the tone of Mr Reid’s update and a cold hard reflection on how difficult it has all been you can’t help feel like the dream may be slipping away. We will see anyway…

 

Summary

So how would we summarise our time as an ABC member after more than 18 months? Well our experience probably mirrors private equity investing generally. It is high risk and there will be many disappointments and setbacks along the way. Certainly we have experienced those so far with the aborted IPOs and Britannia’s Gold. 

At the same time though I came away from the Convention feeling very positive about the opportunities of many companies in the portfolio. There were some great stories and promising developments reported, so hopefully at least one of the companies will go on to be a big success.

Only time will tell on that, so in the meantime we will just have to wait and see…and keep those fingers crossed!

Angel Business Club – Results Update

3rd April 2019

It’s been over a year since we started our review of the Angel Business Club, so it is more than high time for an update.

The strange thing however – and this is mainly why we have delayed doing an update for so long – is that we don’t really have any results to update!

Yes it may sound crazy, but even after having been a member of the Club for around 18 months, we haven’t been able to cash in any of our investments. 

Before we explain fully, here is a quick reminder of what the Angel Business Club (or ABC for short) is all about: when you join up as an active member, you pay a monthly fee and you may receive free monthly share entitlements at the Club’s discretion and in proportion to your membership level in companies at all stages of development, from start-ups to pre-IPO and even listed companies.

It is kind of like Dragons’ Den apart from you don’t get to choose which companies you get shares in, the Club does that for you on a monthly basis.

The problem is that you need to wait for an “exit event” like an IPO (a flotation on the stock market) or a trade sale (a company being bought out by a much larger company) for your investment to be realised and some profit (or loss) to be made. 

There is the option of trading internally on the ABC’s website, but we have tried this a few times and even when putting in the lowest price allowed, we still haven’t found any buyers for our shares. There just isn’t the liquidity available compared to trading on a platform like Hargreaves Lansdown for example. That isn’t surprising as the ABC has around 1100 paying members compared to hundreds of thousands or even millions of traders on a platform like Hargreaves (plus HL have market makers, but that’s a different story altogether).

Anyway, the overall picture is that so far we have paid €2,325 in membership fees and our shares are estimated to be worth around €2,860. 

However, this estimated value is the “strike price” attributed to the shares by ABC, which has to be taken with a pinch of salt as it just their internal valuation and as they used to say on those property programmes, an item “is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.”

So you will only know what those shares are really worth once there is an exit event and you can actually sell them. 

In summary then all we can say so far is that the Club is definitely for the long-term investor rather than the short-term one. If you are looking to make a “quick buck” then this isn’t for you. In many cases you will have to wait 3-5 years for an investment to come to fruition, so patience is of the essence. 

There are a couple of companies due to have IPOs later this year and Britannia’s Gold – one of the the ABC’s flagship projects – is currently embarking on their third crack at retrieving some gold from WW1 and WW2 shipwrecks, so it may be that we have some concrete results to report in the coming months. 

For the moment though, it’s very much a case of “wait and see…”

Angel Business Club – New Review

10th January 2018

If you are a long-term follower of ours you will know that we like to look into a wide-variety of money-making opportunities and not just betting systems.

We like to test out trading systems, forex strategies, cryptocurrencies and really any investment opportunity that we think has the potential to be profitable.

The latest opportunity represents something new again and is called the Angel Business Club. 

I attended a seminar they held just before Christmas and was impressed enough by it that I decided to join up as a paying member.

What is the Angel Business Club All About?

In essence the Club provides the chance to be invested in a range of start-up companies.

Normally this is something that is closed off to the vast majority of people and only venture capitalists like the guys you see on “Dragons Den” would have the chance to become involved in start-up companies.

For a lot of investors this is very frustrating because investing in new start-ups can be one of the most profitable forms of investment possible.

Think of the early investors in Facebook, Uber, Airbnb and the like and the vast fortunes they have amassed from being able to invest at the earliest stages of those companies, well before they floated on the stock market.

Venture capitalists who were able to do this have apparently made hundred-fold, or even thousand-fold, their original investment. 

There is even a story of a cleaner at the Google offices in the very early days of the company who was given a few hundred shares to thank them for their hard work, and now those shares are worth millions!

Whether it is true or not, the story gives you an idea of the incredible value that can be obtained from being an early investor in a company. 

This is where the Angel Business Club comes in. When you join up as an active member, you pay a monthly fee and you may receive free monthly share entitlements at the Club’s discretion and in proportion to your membership level in companies at all stages of development, from start-ups to pre-IPO and even listed companies.

It is all completely legal and legit and has been running for a couple of years now and has:

  • – Become Europe’s largest community of business angels with over 10,000 members
  • – Developed 10 Companies and driven 2 IPOs with more to come in 2018
  • – Built a complex and scalable financial e-platform

The Angel Business Club has an experienced professional team with decades of business and financial experience behind them who vet the potential companies to invest in and then help nurture them. 

The beauty of it as an investor is that you don’t have to do anything, just let the team do all the work and sit back and receive the shares. 

Track Record

Of course the big question you are probably eager to know the answer to is what their track record is like in terms of returns.

Well apparently gains on the portfolio have ranged from 40-70% per year for members to date, which comfortably beats the stock market average and certainly any savings account. 

A notable success includes Wide Cells Group, a stem cell company which the Angel Business Club (ABC) took from an early stage company to float on the stockmarket and the IPO price represented a doubling in value to the price ABC members received shares at (8p to 16p).

Gains will of course vary and all investments in early-stage companies are high-risk, but the track record so far looks very good

There are currently over 20 companies currently on the ABC books. You can read more about them on the ABC website. 

I have recently joined up and will do a full review of the Club here, including the return on investment of my subscription over the course of the year.

This could be a great chance to invest in the next big companies of tomorrow, whilst also becoming involved in an investment community with regular meet-ups, online forums and webinars. 

You can check out the Angel Business Club for yourself here.
