Hot Stock Rockets – Full Review

 

Hot Stock Rockets  is a share tipping service from the ADVFN share platform. It has been around for a number of years, gaining a certain amount of recognition in the stock-tipping community over time.

The service focuses on companies in the UK AIM market, which is made up of small-cap stocks. The goal of Hot Stock Rockets is to make a 25% return on the shares they recommend within three months.

Subscribers receive a monthly newsletter which contains their tip of the month, plus up to five other tips recommended by Hot Stock Rockets’ editorial committee.

These tips come in at various times of the week and there are also regular updates on their open positions. Each trade comes with a detailed write-up, buy price and target price.

We followed the service for a full year which gave us a good chance to take a thorough look at it.

In terms of both the official results and our results, £1000 was used for each share tip. We used a notional £20,000 portfolio for the purposes of this review.

After one year, in terms of closed trades they made £3,843 profit on the closed trades, but the open trades were £1389 down at the time we finalized this review.

Obviously we don’t know what the final results of those open trades will be right now, but for the purposes of fairness and being able to put a final figure on our review, we have included the P/L from the open trades as they stand.

In total then that gives a net profit of £2454.

That doesn’t include dealing costs or commission however, so in reality the net profit will have been a little lower. Using a figure £12 per buy/sell, that would add up to around £480. If your dealing costs are lower you could obviously adjust that figure accordingly.

It is also worth bearing in mind that the shares recommended are generally UK microcap stocks so if you live outside the UK, it might not be easy to find a broker that trades in them. You can use our results spreadsheet to check if your broker trades in the companies recommended.

In any event, given the solid profit achieved over the course of our trial, we are happy to award Hot Stock Rockets a PASSED rating.

With very low subscription costs and solid results achieved, it’s one of the better share tipping services we’ve come across.

 

Service Breakdown

Ease of use: There is an average of just one or two trades per week so it’s a pretty simple service to follow. As mentioned above however, these are UK microcap stocks so may not be available with foreign brokers. It would be advisable to check before signing up to the service.

Transparency of results: The official results are only available to paying members which is a shame, but once you are a member you can see a full history of their trades and their current portfolio.

Did our results match those on their website? Yes, apart from one trade which we contacted them about but never got a clear answer on. Otherwise the results reflected the trades as given out.

Trade success rate: The trade success rate on completed trades was 80% for our trial, but conversely 80% of the open trades were in losing positions, so the success rate on those trades may not end up being quite as high.

Subscription costs: The subscription costs at the time of writing are very reasonable indeed – in fact one of the cheapest share tipping services we have come across, at just £5.51 per month or £55.08 per year.

 

OVERALL VERDICT: PASSED 4.0 out of 5.0 stars

Hot Stock Rockets is a share tipping service that gives out picks on UK microcap stocks, primarily in the commodities sector.

It achieved a solid profit of £2454 over the course of our trial, including both closed and open trades and using a portfolio of £20,000.

On that basis and for having a very reasonable subscription cost, we are happy to award it a PASSED rating. If you are outside the UK though it may be worth checking out if you have access to the shares recommended however as they are generally UK microcap stocks that may not be available through foreign brokers.

Hopefully the open trades will turn around at some point but it has been a steady drop down for them for a while now so there may come a point where they decide to cut their losses and close some of their positions out.

 

 

 


Hot Stock Rockets – Results Update

16th March 2021

The recent struggles continue for UK-based share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets, with the open trades falling a further £47 to currently stand £1613 down.

However, the closed trades have made £5609 profit to date, so they are still well ahead overall.

You can view full results here.

The only closed position since our last update was in a trade from before our review started, so there are no closed positions to update.

Clearly they are trying to ride out this wobble and hope their positions recover. We will see how that plays out over the remainder of our review.

 

 

 


Hot Stock Rockets – Results Update

1st March 2021

Things have taken a rather sour turn for UK-based share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets since our last update.

We remarked last time how the open positions had dropped further from our previous update. Well they have fallen even further, going from £364 up to £1566 down.

You can view full results here.

It is still possible these positions could turn around and end up in the green of course, but obviously it is disappointing to see such a drop as they were over £4000 up at one stage. No doubt the dips in the market have had something to do with it.

There have been no closed positions since our last update so clearly they are waiting for an upturn in the market before exiting their trades at the moment.

Hopefully that will come soon.

 

 

 


Hot Stock Rockets – Results Update

9th February 2021

It’s been somewhat of a mixed picture for UK-based share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets since our last update. In terms of the closed trades the news is good, with an additional £588 profit added from the one closed trade since our previous update.

That means they are now £5609 up on their closed trades to date.

You can view full results here.

In terms of the open trades however the news is not quite as positive. We remarked last time that the open trades had dropped from £4152 up to £1782 up. Well they have fallen further, to now just £364 up.

It’s obviously good the open trades are still in the green overall but just a shame they’ve dropped from being so much up previously.

Overall though you have to say the results here have been excellent and we certainly can’t have any complaints.

There have been no closed trades for UK-based share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets since our last update, so they still stand £5021 up on closed trades for our trial overall.

You can view full results here.

The open trades have fallen back somewhat since our last update and are now £1782 up rather than the £4152 up they were last time.

However, as always with open trades they could bounce back again (or of course fall further!).

It has been an active start to the new year with three new trades opened and plenty of news flow on current positions so lots for members to get stuck into.

Just a note to say in terms of these results we are recording their position sizes of £1000 worth of shares (or as close as is possible) in each company.

The open trades are going very well too, currently standing £4152 up at the time of writing.

We are just querying one trade however, which is reported as a sell in the portfolio history on Hot Stock Rockets but which we don’t appear to have received a notification for.

Just a reminder that these recommendations are for small cap UK stocks so may not be easily available to trade for those based outside the UK. For those based in the UK however this looks like a top service.

Hot Stock Rockets – Results Update

9th September 2020

UK-based share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets have been in excellent form since our last update, netting £2,684 profit from their closed trades.

Their open trades are also £1,034 up at the time of writing so all in all things have progressed very nicely for them.

You can view full results here.

These are the results recorded on their portfolio account which may be a little difficult to match exactly as they don’t send out sell alerts when they close a trade, so you have to keep an eye on the account for when they close a position. They do include target prices though with their opening trade so you can use those if you wish.

Just to note as well that in terms of the overall portfolio from before our review started, they have made £15,789 of realised profit but have open positions of -£3,750, so in effect are around £12,000 up for their portfolio overall. That is very good going and we have to say we have been impressed with this service so far. Let’s see if they can keep it up.

 

 

 

 


Hot Stock Rockets – Results Update

16th July 2020

We have taken longer than normal to do an update on share tipping service Hot Stock Rockets as it is a long-term service with a small number of recommendations meaning there hasn’t been much news to report on so far.

Since our trial started three months ago they have only opened six positions and haven’t closed any of them. So this is a service we will have to do a much longer trial of than normal – probably a full year to get a proper sense of it.

To date though things have started pretty well, with four shares up and two down out of the six recommended.

You can view full results here.

Just a note to say as they hold medium- to long-term positions we haven’t listed the stock names to not give anything away.

Looking back over their portfolio from before our trial started, we can see that their open positions are currently £6,090 down, with a banked profit of £13,790, giving a net total of £7,700 profit on £27,000 invested.

We will report back again a little further down the line when hopefully we will have some closed positions to report on.

 

 


Hot Stock Rockets – New Review

13th April 2020

Today we are starting a new trial of a popular share tipping service called Hot Stock Rockets. 

It comes under the ADVFN umbrella and has been around for a number of years, gaining a certain amount of recognition in the stock-tipping community over time.

The service focuses on companies in the UK AIM market, which is made up of small-cap stocks. The goal of Hot Stock Rockets is to make a 25% return on the shares they recommend within three months. It is not so much aimed at long-term investors or those who like to buy-and-hold, but rather those looking to make a reasonably fast return and move on. The kind of companies they target are those with the potential to move up quickly.

Subscribers receive a monthly newsletter which contains their tip of the month, plus up to five other tips recommended by their editorial committee.

The service costs just £5 per month (+VAT) so is very reasonable compared to many other offerings within the sector.

Of course, the key question is whether they are able to generate a profit as a low subscription cost is no help if they are losing subscribers money.

Anyway, we will run a trial and see how they do under live test conditions. We will post updates here on how things are progressing.

In the meantime you can check out Hot Stock Rockets for yourself here.
