Last months newsletter was published on 8/7/2011, so
all statistics for performance will be based on market activity
on 8/8/2011 for the August model portfolios. 

The selling pressure climaxed in the first half of the month,
with a little relief rally occurring in the second half of August. 
European banks continue to look weaker, so that economic
storm is probably not over yet.  In fact, there are some large
banks in Europe right now that are having problems
securing interbank loans lasting more than a few days. 
If these banks start to seize up, expect another rapid decline
in stock market prices.

As of the close of the market Friday, the Rapid Growth System 
was up about 6% for the period, the Aggressive Growth 
System was down about -2% for the period, and the S&P500 was 
up about 2% for the same period.  The following table 
shows where we stand, year to date:

S&P 500 (YTD) -3%
Rapid Growth System (YTD) -22%
Aggressive Growth System (YTD) -26%

We will not know the official results of either portfolio until 
after we record our trades on Thursday 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 9/1/11.  This months
