The stock market indexes we track traded in a range during
December, and closed relatively flat for the month, our model
portfolios were up nicely for the month, but still got whacked
for the year.  The economy is still on the skids, unemployment
is growing, credit markets are still dysfunctional, and the
government is going to "help" with stimulus packages
going out to an ever growing list of recipients.  2009 is
shaping up to be an interesting year.

As of the close of the market Wednesday, the Rapid Growth System 
was up 12%  for the month, the Aggressive Growth 
System was up about 7% for the month, and the S&P500 
was up about 1% for the same period.  The following table 
shows where we stand, year to date:

S&P 500 (YTD) -38%
Rapid Growth System (YTD) -48%
Aggressive Growth System (YTD) -54%

We will not know the official results of either portfolio until 
after we make our trades on Friday morning. Official 
results will be published on the web site. 

Just a reminder, the top 30 stocks picked by our computer 
program for both portfolios are listed on the web site, just
click on the above link to view them. This is done for 
subscribers who may want to hold stocks from previous 
month's newsletters, if they still are ranked in the top 30 by 
our computerized screening models. Our model portfolios 
do not follow this method, but the top 30 service was 
requested by many subscribers, so we're happy to provide it.

And now, here are this month's computer generated stock picks. 
Remember that each stock in both model portfolios should
represent ten percent of the value in their respective portfolios
based on the price they are purchased at on 1/2/09.  This months

Growth System, on Friday, January 2, 2009, are:
