The Best Of Technical And Fundamental Stock-Picking Criteria

|Includes: IWM, QQQ, SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

Baseline Analytics Prime Technical Leaders shares the best of fundamental and technical stock-picking criteria. This week's rather lengthy list is being made available free to all of our newsletter subscribers. Click here for this week's list.

What does it mean to be a Baseline Analytics "Prime Technical Leader?" The following hurdles must be met:

  1. Attractive fundamentals, earnings performance and growth. Stocks that make the cut typically represent growth at a reasonable price (GARP), tend to beat earnings estimates and share a return on equity (ROE) in the double-digits. Many pay dividends.
  2. Last week's average trading volume must be 10% or higher than the prior 50-day average trading volume.
  3. The stock must display strong technical indicators, such as trading above its 50-day moving average plus a favorable short-term moving average cross, indicating building momentum.

Subscribers to Baseline Analytics receive the Prime Technical Leaders List weekly, as well as a targeted subset of the list to simplify investment selection and portfolio management.

Be careful out there! The stock market is sorely in need of a break, so set your expectations accordingly and preserve capital. But don't ignore strong companies with attractive prospects, and keep a buy list such as the Baseline Analytics Prime Technical Leaders handy!
