Hey Jim,

I realize you're just poking fun, but thought it might be helpful to clear up any confusion about our services.

MDP builds a "blend" portfolio from our idea services, each of which focus on a a particular style of investing (value, growth, dividend, small cap, etc). MDP combines the best of the best ideas from each service into an integrated portfolio that aims to beat the S&P 500.

Supernova is our growth portfolio service. It draws on growth ideas in Stock Advisor and Rule Breakers to build portfolios aimed at particular groups of members--for example, those in the meat of their wage-earning years, those nearing retirement, etc. The portfolios aim to be the S&P 500 subject to the needs of the particular group each for which each portfolio is designed.

Pro is our absolute returns service. The Pro team builds a portfolio aimed at delivering inflation + 7% annualized, regardless of what the market does. Pro does not draw ideas from other services; the team is free to use any tools they wish to accomplish their goal. The Pro portfolio combines stocks with options, ETFs, ETNs, MLPs, REITs, short, hedges, and the occasionally forex play (via exchange-traded vehicles members can follow).

Hope that helps...

Cheers,
Alex
