On January 1, I did something I’ve never done before.
I opened up my database and released the names of the 250 best stocks and the 250 worst stocks for the first quarter.
Essentially, I let investors peek "inside the machine" behind our proprietary stock-picking strategy.
Those who got my very first Q1 report in 2014 saw a big difference in their investing success over the last 90 days. Not only did they increase the number of winners in their portfolio, they also saw their average gain rise for the quarter.
Investors can certainly use a leg up like that any time. But it's especially important in 2014.
The reason why is all explained in this chart…
The best stocks in terms of fundamentals are represented on the left side of the chart. In 2011, you had to be in the absolute best stocks in order to make any money. The market finished the year flat… and the only stocks that were up were in the top 10% of our exclusive fundamental system.
In 2012, it was a bumpy ride. But it was also a broad-based rally, and as long as you were in the top 50%, you probably did ok.
Then last year, in 2013, we saw a major market shift.
Wall Street started focusing on earnings again, and even more importantly, quality earnings.
As a result, the market got narrow. To outperform, you had to buy the top 10% and top 20% of stocks last year.
This year, the market is growing narrower still. In the first quarter, the best stocks to buy were again in the top 10%.
As a result, the 250 "best buys" that we recommended in our Q1 Investing Guide posted $3 in gains for every $1 profit from the S&P 500.
And with the market getting even more selective, I can tell you with absolute certainty that this quarter’s report is even more important to your investing success—perhaps the most critical stock report I’ll produce this year.
That's because I not only tell you what stocks to buy, but also which stocks to avoid.
And in Q2, with the Federal Reserve sending the market into fits… droughts in half the country and severe storms in the other half… and the market headed towards the seasonally weak summer period… this quarter could be the trickiest in a long while.
What’s going to make the difference in your investing success this quarter is sorting those companies with superior fundamentals from those without them.
And that’s what my new Portfolio Grader 500 report service can do for you now.
Separating the Good From the Bad
My Portfolio Grader 500 formula blends together our Quantitative analysis (that’s how we measure the risk-to-reward for each stock), with our Fundamental analysis.
We dig deep to find out: Is the company growing? Is it profitable? Is it fiscally sound? Is it expected to disappoint at earnings or is it expected to surprise?
We examine eight key variables in total, including Sales Growth, Earnings Growth, Profit Margins, Cash Flow and more.
It’s a lot to digest, that’s why we let our super computers crunch the numbers and then we convert that data into those easy-to-read letter grades—from A (strong buy) to F (strong sell)—arming you with the precise information you need to make smarter, more profitable investing decisions.
Best of all, this rating system not only helps you side-step troubled companies that could take your portfolio by surprise, but it also identifies market-beating stocks that will help you boost your portfolio’s performance.
As you can clearly see, our strict screening separates the winners from the losers and our A-rated stocks have outperformed F stocks by 1,748%—BIG DIFFERENCE!
And now I’m taking this incredible tool one step further.
Avoiding troubled companies in the midst of market volatility is exactly what they say they needed in this market and that's what I'd like to offer you today.
Specifically, I want to give you deeper access to more stocks so you can make better investing decisions.
Each quarter, I run my proprietary screens and whittle down the 250 best and 250 worst stocks on the market today. Then I package that analysis into one easy to read report and deliver it directly to you.
At the start of every quarter, or at any time during the quarter, you can grab this handy reference guide and let it help you make informed buy and sell decisions.
Want to add a healthcare play to your holdings? Each stock report page names the sector and how that company stacks up against the competition.
Looking for a strong dividend play? Again, every stock report lists the current yield and important fundamental data that will help you make your investing decision.
And the reverse is also true. Want to know which stocks should be avoided in the coming quarter? Better check the easy lookup to see if it’s really a dud and not worth your time or money. If it’s among the 250 most dangerous stocks on the market, it’ll be in this guide.
Together, these best and worst stocks will give you the most powerful one- two-punch in wealth-building information I’ve ever developed for wringing more profit out of each market trend and safely and systematically building your wealth.
