No. of Recommendations: 6
Curious if anyone has thought of or does reallocate their roth investments every time there are new recommended stocks. ... every time there are new recommendations from stock advisor. I get that the investing strategy is supposed to be long term but the assumption I would be making is that the newest recs are based on the most up to date information and therefore the best place to currently have your money. Has anyone tried this,
is this a terrible idea?


Yes it is a terrible idea. But not for the reason you think.

It is a terrible idea because you are paying any attention to what some anonymous person(s) recommended. Why not just watch Jim Cramer's Mad Money and buy whatever he recommends?

assumption I would be making is that the newest recs are based on ...

Don't you get it that the newest recommendations are because they have to come up with new recommendation(s) every day/week? Because nobody is going to subscribe to a Stock Advisor Service that says "Buy XYZ and forget about it. Check back in 10 years to see if we changed our pick."

Until you know what you are doing, just buy a S&P500 index fund. SPY or VOO.

There. A "buy and forget it" recommendation, no charge. Check back in 10 years and the recommendation will be the same.
