High Pressure selling tactics
I was a little interested in this service, attended a few webinars and did not expect the high pressure to sign up to their newsletters. A good service should sell itself. The guy was relentless and I eventually had to hang up- he just wouldn't listen. This really made me question their ethics.
Promise the world, deliver little
Had to go to Motley Fool to get what I needed. Feel I have been ripped off. I paid 2yrs subscription then was forgotten about. I want a refund please. Have requested 3 times for a call back from an advisor. No call back. Have been doing well on my own thanks to Motley Fool. But Australian Stock Report has been terrible.
excellent platform!!! transformed my investing potential
After stumbling across the team at Austrailian stock report and their amazing HALO platform whilst sifting through the mountains of invisting information on the internet i knew instaintly that it was exactly what i needed.
I have been a member of ASR for approx 3 months now and have been well satisfied with evrything about it. I recieve regular phone calls from my consultant, (Joel) to assist me with any trouble shooting i may need assistance with, the weekly reaserch webinars are a personal favourite, but the best part about it is i now hav...
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Revisiting my subscription to ASRW.
Have been working with Mark Redmond, who has most pleasantly and helpfully fascilitated my workings with HALO. He has been most approachable. That encouraged me to delve further into what ASRW has to offer. His videos enabled me to understand HALO. He recommended Tom Armstrong to me.
Tom has been very helpful in rebuilding our portfolio. I appreciate his clear analysis and advice. He gives me "as it really is" advice and is sensitive to my thoughts at the same time, exactly what I need..
Both gentlemen are unfailingly courteous and ready to assist in whatever way they can.
Until now I had never met either gentlemen.
So far so good...
Jumped at the chance of a special deal, since I have no experience with trading software, but the fact that they lease out the Halo analysis software to their competition boosted my optimism.
I have now read the product reviews and believe that I may have to call and speak to ASR Sales Manager to resolve training and refund issues. I was assured I can ring plenty of advisors. There is always the possibility of a class action. (Check the web for 'lawyers + class action').
I was assured that a years membership will only cost (a little less...
Extremely hostile response when I refused to join up
The second phone call from the ASR became extremely hostile when i refused to hand over my credit card details. I did an internet search and the feed back was, once you paid for your two months "free" trail, if you were unhappy with the service within the two months free trail, it was difficult to get a refund. I thought a FREE trail would be free. The caller kept promising a FREE two months trail but insisted on having my credit card details. I advised the ASR caller that some of the reviews were excellent but others were dissatisfied. The c...aller then became very hostile towards me, I now understand how hard it must be to ask for a refund. If there was no hostility from the caller, I may of joined up on the condition that a full refund was possible but that seemed unlikely due to caller abusing my decision to be cautious.
ASR was a great investment for me!
I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience of ASR. Every person I've spoken to has been very professional and helpful. In particular, I feel blessed to have Richard Nader as my advisor. He's always on the ball, very responsive, knowledgeable, professional and excellent at explaining reasons for his recommendations. He calls me immediately with important new information. His recommendations have been briliant. My portfolio is doing very well. I feel so grateful to Michael Cannizzaro for inviting me to join ASR!
I use Halo all the time.
I use Halo all the time. Even without employing the scan and blend functions, I find it to be so very valuable in managing my trades and my long-term investments.
Prior to attending one of Gareth Iggo’s seminars, I spent a lot of time, every day. For every stock I purchased, I read extensively about the company, the people in charge and the work they were engaged in. I checked my charting software to see its price trend. I consulted numerous sources to obtain fundamental data. I searched for the EPS, dividends, sales, income, free cash flo...
So Glad I Joined
Jan from SA
I joined the Australian Stock Report in October 2019.
They had a hard time encouraging me to join to become a member but they eventually won and I am so pleased they did
The broker Sunny Kang was allotted to me.
He is an extremely intelligent and caring person and works hard to meet my needs.
I have learnt so much in the last 6 months that it does not faze me if the market goes up or down as you can win either way.
After 3 months I was given the opportunity to join up for 10 years which I have.
Unreliable, Poor Communication, Refund Difficult
I Joined for a 2 year period on 5/12/19.
I received one phone call to see how I was going. (Training promised not forthcoming)
After spending time with the site decided it was not for me and sent an email on 1/1/20 setting out the deficiencies as I saw it and REQUESTING A REFUND within the cooling-off period
No response or refund received so sent another email on 7/2/20 requesting refund and acknowledgement of receipt of my request.
About a week later received a phone call asking how I was liking the service.
Told them no good and advising of e...

Halo - great product for investors
Halo is a really good product for those who invest in shares, foreign exchange or managed funds. It has so many different pre-determined searches to use as well as parameters to input when defining your own search. Whether you design a search using technical or fundamental monitors or virtually anything you want to input, or use the available options, you will get great value from the Halo platform.
I have been extremely pleased with Halo.
I have been extremely pleased with Halo. It is simply a brilliant software package.
It has paid for itself in spades since I took out my subscription to it and have now had it for a number of years.
I am a short-term trader as well as a long-term investor. Halo is brilliant for both purposes as well as for fundamental and technical traders.
The features I like in particular include the following which work together in assisting to make an informed decision on the value of any particular company:
The projections for the next three financi...al years and in particular the percentage growth over that time and the estimated PE values too. The benefit of this for me is that where I see good growth as well as a low PE my feeling is that I can hardly lose (in the absence of something out of left field). Broker consensus recommendations (including the number of brokers covering the stock) give you an excellent idea of what the community is thinking as does the consensus price target.
excellent service so far
ASR has provided an excellent service.I am new to this and Dvid has helped me to buy Australian shares and Phillip is in the process of helping me to buy International shares.I was scared to do it my self as I am a novice and they have been very patient, easy to understand and I am finding the experience very enjoyable.
I have recommended them to my friends and colleagues and would not hesitate recommending them to other people interested in trading stocks. Vivien
Do not waste your money with this company
I was charged for a service I never agreed too. After much discussion it was agreed I would get a refund but a month later I am still waiting. As for their training -they promise too ring at a certain time but never do.
Be very careful with this lot as for me they have proved very untrustworthy
I hope this discount offer is as good as it sounds, time will tell
Too soon to give a realistic review, but my introduction to Halo was very impressive. I have already been given a few growth shares recommendations .
When signing up I was offered a good price discount, but no time to consider properly. If I did not pay the card on the day, there was no discount. This selling attitude should be changed.
A solution to self trade with confidence, advice and good information
I've been contacted after downloading a report from the Australian Stock Report website. The adviser I'm dealing with have been persuasive, not being pushy to me to subscribe to Macrovue to get access to thematic portfolio that have potential to perform better than the market. The platform is user friendly and contains a lot of information that can bring confidence in your decisions. The adviser can also help in the investment.
What I like compared to other investors is the full access to where you invest your savings and full control of it. All is transparent.
Macrovue is great, but the documentation?
The idea behind Macrovue: enabling investors to invest in shares from around the world -- which although the shares are in groups (called Vues), they are not managed funds, so the shares rise and fall on their own merits not on the alleged skill of a fund manager. For example, all the shares might be in Water-Liquid Gold, 5G Wireless Technology, Aussie Large Cap, IT, Tech Stars, Warren Buffet Top 10, or Robotics. This results in interest being achieved, usually way, way above the 'average' managed fund. But the documentation? Every page is unda...ted, there is no time imprint, there is generally no investor's name on any document and there is no Account Number. For example, if 100 investors printed off the individual Performance of their Macrovues and then threw them up in the air, no one would be able to prove which Performance report was his or hers when they recovered them! If they threw them up in the air over a period of weeks, no one would know what date or time each document was printed, nor who's account was who’s. This applies to Holdings, Vues, Stocks, Statements, Orders, as well as Performance.
