Our research draws its market bias from a combo of Fundamental and Technical evidence. Economic and earning trends are matched against our analysis of price and volume charts, giving us an indication of how friendly or unfriendly the market is behaving.
The goal is to identify top growth stocks primed to breakout of technical bases.
This is active trading, not investing. Our holding periods can last a day to months.
When the market is happy, we're buying top-ranked growth stocks picked for having a number of superior financial metrics that include: top earnings and sales, return on equity (ROE), institutional sponsorship and top-performing industries among others.
We use patterns like the cup-and-handle and other basing patterns to measure our entry and exit points appropriately.
When the market is sad, or prone to further selling, we're relying more on technical analysis as we get flexible with short-term trades driven by volatility.
The Growth Stock Report started in 2003 as a way to share our analysis and keep it honest under the scrutiny of the public.
