3) STOCK SELECTION METHOD:
The author uses a number of proprietary criteria for picking the stocks selected for his WEEKLY MARKET LETTER. He reviews the background of the company, the products or services they sell, the company's earmings estimates, and the latest insider buying and selling transactions, before he considers them as a "Stock Pick" candidate.
Then he checks the latest news on the company, and whether any recent developments have affected the stock, or should affect the stock in the near future, be it a major contract award, new drug discovery, or increased earnings potential, etc. He also checks to see whether the stock has been recently recommended by a major brokerage house.
Most importantly, he then checks the recent trading in the stock and analyzes the company’s stock chart for the last two years to decide whether or not the stock should be included as one of his weekly stock picks.
