SWI "QuickPicks" Ratings Report
Friday September 10, 2014
The Wildest Ride in 17 Years
SWI stays the Course
The headline says it all ! Accordingly, there is not much else to say at the end of a week like this. Our nerves are rattled, but our long term confidence is not. Who is the analyst that can stand up (today) and say with confidence where this is going in the short term? But then SWI is not about the short term. SWI's QuickPick mission is to discover companies with (still) low share prices that have a future, companies that over time are likely to generate a good ROI for their investors, despite the occasional turmoil in the market.
The truth is trying to time the market is always a sucker’s game and that’s especially true during volatile times. Days like this are NOT a good time to radically change your long-term strategy.
Accordingly, in our SWI Portfolio, we acquire and stay long in stocks of companies with leading edge products and solid business models, some of them tried and true, others just coming into the market via an IPO, but always strictly adhering to our investing philosophy and selection criteria.
So we stay the course. The US economy is recovering, the unemployment rate is going down and corporate earnings are reasonable. The US market has a tradition of individuals and companies coming up with new leading edge technologies and products that create new investment opportunities. SWI's research will keep you on track.
Our weekly "SWI QuickPicks" Ratings Report keeps you informed about newly initiated stocks and potential upgrades and downgrades in the QuickPicks section on our StockWatchIndex website. SWI QuickPicks represent the consolidated opinions of carefully selected financial analyst blogs and opinions of Wall Street firms that we respect and frequently sample. You can conveniently follow the live links for each stock on http://www.stockwatchindex.com/swi-quickpicks/ for more detail. Please do not miss the wealth of frequently updated news, research reports and other valuable information elsewhere on SWI, especially for the stocks on our WatchIndex page.
We do not necessarily pick these stocks for "day-trading-profits", although following our picks could create the opportunity to do so. Our recommendations are never solely based on the day's or week's performance, or on an anticipated awareness campaign, but are based on current and past performance, analysis of the current and projected financial position, as well as the expectation that we have for the general future performance of the Company. Actual results always depend on the timely implementation of the company's business plan. SWI picks companies at an early stage of their development that it (and other credible analysts) believe have a solid core business model and good potential for success. This service for our subscribers is meant to convey a "quick" reflection of the market mood for certain stocks, which may inspire you to depart on your own research. Do not solely rely on the opinions expressed in this publication, always talk to your personal investment adviser before making an investment decision.
