While the 5 Star Club finished the 2012 calendar year with a net profit of 38.80 stars, which is an annual rate of return exceeding 30%, the start to 2013 has been extremely disappointing. We are currently down 8.68 net stars through the first five trading days of 2013, and your frustration is certainly justified under the circumstances. However, it is important not to overreact to short-term variance as sports investing requires a long-term approach, and my documented record of success over the last six years should give you comfort moving forward.
I lost a season-high 25.42 stars last March, but still managed to finish the year with a solid rate of return (32.3%). In fact, I actually sustained losses in five (5) of the twelve (12) trading periods in 2012, yet out-performed both the Dow and S&P 500 for the sixth consecutive year. Variance is an inherent part of sports investing and, unfortunately, losing streaks are part of the process. Exercising proper money management and maintaining a stable emotional outlook during the good times and bad are critical to succeeding in this venture. I have not forgotten how to handicap and remain optimistic about the endless possibilities in 2013.
As I have stated in the past, I can make two guarantees with respect to my service: (1) I will continue to work tirelessly to provide you with the best investment advice on the market, bar none; and (2) I will suffer losing days, week and even months during the calendar year. I provide industry-leading transparency and do not engage in the underhanded business practices that tarnish the handicapping industry. Earning your trust (and confidence) is paramount to my sports investment firm, and I will not let you down in 2013.

Since first publishing the above-referenced letter to my private clients on January 5, my sports investment firm has generated a net profit of 8.50 stars, including consecutive 5* winners on the Baltimore Ravens and Alabama Crimson Tide. As stated earlier herein, sports investing requires a long-term approach that integrates both proper money management and emotional stability. Try not to overreact to short-term variance, whether good or bad, as the most important figure is your return on investment at the end of the season/year.
