The advert for "Global Gains" boasts a gain of 23.84% vs S&P 500 gain of 6.40%.

What exactly is the time frame for these returns? S&P 500 is up 10% YTD from Jan 01 2007.

Personally, I think that "iShares MSCI EAFE Index Fund (ETF)" would be a more appropriate benchmark for an international stock picking service. It is up 16.02% for the year and 167% for the past five years.

Or if you want higher risk, iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Indx (ETF) is up 39.7% for the year and 380% over the past five years.
