Please read this message carefully before exploring any financial services website.
The purpose of the Sanco Services website is threefold: (1) to promote the somewhat unique (and non-mainstream Wall Street) Investment Strategies of Investment Manager Steve Selengut; (2) to promote the sale of a book entitled "The Brainwashing of the American Investor"; (3) to provide educational information to the investing public.
Every statement, discussion, illustration, and representation contained anywhere on this website is entirely the creation and opinion of Steve Selengut (unless noted otherwise). Nothing said or alluded to has been researched beyond the scope of the author's personal (and quite extensive) experience in the investment arena. It is presumed that visitors to this website will take the initiative to both investigate and question the information that is provided here.
Certainly, anything said here is subject either to criticism or to objection by others in the field. That doesn't make it wrong. But it is clearly not anything like the blather that emanates from many other resources. Nothing should be construed to be absolute, or predictive of anything at all.
No specific statistics regarding performance of client accounts are presented for various reasons, not the least of which is the incredible hassle it is to substantiate such statistics in the format and time limitations required by regulatory agencies. For performance information, I provide a list of references that prospective clients may contact at their leisure.
[Actually, I'm not a big believer in conventional performance analysis anyway, based as it is on calendar time periods, Market Value comparisons with averages and indices, and non-client specific benchmarks.] References may be provided to prospective clients who understand the investment strategies, definitions, and concepts explained in "The Brainwashing of the American Investor."
My basic assumption is that the select group of humans that visit this website are intelligent enough to interpret what they read without being misdirected. If interested, they will know how to reach out for more information. Never be shy about asking questions of the person who will be directing your investments, and if you don't agree with any aspect of the strategy that you feel is important, hire someone else.
The purpose of, and the need for, performance statistics on this website (in the past) was mainly to debunk media representations that perpetuate financial myths of various kinds. I can state my opinion about the information, but you will have to dig up the evidence yourselves. The "Brainwashing" book will help.
Nowhere within this website should any statement, number, notion, or illustration be taken as a guarantee of anything at all. But please keep in mind that, in my humble opinion, there was absolutely no reason for an investor to lose money in the stock market from 2000 thru 2004. No Mutual Funds, No New Issues, No NASDAQ, No Problem!
