Hi John,

Just got the notice Alpha is winding down.

I am a happy Stock Adviser customer and was a happy Big Short customer.

My logic and approach was simple: Shorting overvalued companies makes just as much sense as buying undervalued companies. Strong companies will do better than average in bull markets and weak companies will do worse than average in bear markets.

My desire is modest: solid, medium-term shorting candidates to compliment the long-term Stock Adviser selections. I want a short yin for SA's long yang. :-)

I'm not interested in the complex, expensive, high-maintenance tools that were part of the Alpha service that I didn't use and are, presumably, part of the other services. I'm not interested in the (real) fool's errand of trying to make money in sideways markets.

I want something that allows me to come out of bear markets (or just downturns) stronger than I went into them.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks in advance,
