Russell Katz's Rating System: A Breakdown

Summary

A breakdown of my rating system.

My rating system broken down:

Buy Recommendation

Now is the time to accumulate more shares.

Hold Rating The stock is either trading at a premium or is facing some short-term risk and therefore, avoid buying shares at this time. However, watch this company for further developments and a drop in the share price. If you own this company do not sell.

Avoid Recommendation If you have a large position now is the time to start sizing down. However, the company is not yet ready to short.

Short Recommendation

Do not buy, do not hold, short the stock.

Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

Additional disclosure: While I express my opinion in this article, only you can determine if a specific strategy is right for your portfolio. You should always do your own research before buying, selling, or shorting any stock.
