PAWS – one year on

I have been following the Personal All Weather Service (PAWS) and after 365 days the bank stands at 187.81  points. This represents a profit of  87.81 pts over the year. The return on starting  bank is +87.81%.   If you had placed £10 a point and subtracting the service cost of £39.99 per month, you will have  been in profit by £398.22.

Winning 30 day periods: 7/12. Losing 30 day periods:  5/12. Longest consecutive losing 30 day periods: one.

I report now on the  bank at 30 day intervals and after one year:

0 – 100 pts (starting bank)

30 – 111.4 pts

60 – 175.41 pts (there was a winning double in this 30 day period)

90 – 152.87 pts

120 – 168.55 pts

150 – 161.89  pts

180 – 170.29 pts

210 – 165.43 pts

240 – 183.93 pts

270 – 197. 25 pts

300 – 191.55 pts

330 – 187.31 pts

360 – 187.81 pts

365 – 187.81 pts (end bank)

There have been very few bets since day 330 as this is an All Weather Service and there are fewer relevant races during the Summer.

Although the profit in the second 180 day period was much lower than the first 180 day period, the service has remained profitable  and remains in the approved  category. It is  the only profitable service that I have reviewed.

Greyhound Master Review

Sunday 25th August 2013

Just the one tonight, at Henlow
4 points at 7/4 on Trap 6 to win.
This dog was a winner for us a few days ago
Unfortunately tonight it was next to last. (Went off at 5/4)

So a 4 point reduction to our August profits

Tomorrow night, if I remember correctly, is the running of some finals from ante post bets advised a couple of weeks ago. Have not had the confirmation yet but expecting some additional bets too

Beat The Market

Following my first post on Beat The Market I’ve had some feedback from the programme owner that I think is worth commenting on here. Firstly, the website at Beat The Market does not provide monthly performance results as he believes that users are discouraged when (and of course this does happen) there is a loss in a specific month. The point made though is that if the market is down 10% on the month and Beat The Market is down just 5% over the same period then the actual system performance has been good. And I agree that this approach should be the way investors need to view any system performance.

Secondly, the point was made that no stock is chosen because a dividend payment is due and performance figures do not include any of these figures. I was perhaps a little unclear on this point in my post so am glad to make clear that dividend payments are an additional return that do not figure in the reported returns for any individual stock.

So, on to the weeks performance. Things have been fairly quiet since I made the initial report and the current balance on the account has decreased by $146.90. The performance mirrors the weakness in the S&P 500 over the recent period as trading has been fairly light.  As the main holiday season is coming to an end I’m expecting things to become busier soon.

Greyhound Master Tipster

Friday 23rd August

What you miss, dear reader, is the outline not only to the tips formally given but opinions on others that are likely to win but he feels would be “non value” odds. These often win

We also get information on previous selections if thought pertinent.

This afternoon in the Open Meeting at Monmore, we were given 2 selections
4.37 Trap 1 with a bet of 5 points to win at 2/1
The dog brought home the bacon at an SP of 6/4. So our advised profit 10 more points
In the 4.57 Trap 3 bet 4 points to win at 13/8
It won at Evens, the profit is 6 1/2 points, total 16 1/2 on the day.

An impressive 45 1/2 for the month to date, with 6 winning dogs out of the last seven advised (plus a couple of odds on winners advised informally and not included here.

Now , do we keep our money in our pocket or get on for the ride……………

Greyhound Master Tipster

Monday 19th August 2013

When I read we were to be a lumpy 8 points on a greyhound tonight I cringed.
it was advised at 6/4 and I could get that price still an hour later
It was in the 3.07p.m. (afternoon) at Monmore,, Trap No 1.
It won at odds on 4/6 but we got a 12 point addition to our profit

Then in the 4.27 we were to spend another 4 points on Trap 2 at 3/1
Could only get 5/2 on this and it went off at 2/1
But the advised price gave us a further 12 points profit as this selection also won.

That is 24 points on the day after a run of 4 consecutive winners following the bad patch prior to them.

There are no selections for 20th August so there will not be a post for that day
