As I licked my stock wounds this evening I got around to reading Friday's IBD. In the making money section, B1, there is a nice article in the Investor's Corner. It is a refresher on IBD's online tools and how they need to be used -- especially in a correction period. The tools are My Stock Lists, Stock Checkup, and IBD Charts. Mike asked me what I used for a stock filter. The IBD tools are it.
The bottom line is that you must keep poking at this stuff even when you are afraid to logon and see the blood. Things do turn around. In the meeting we covered CoinStar, for example. That stock has done very well though all of this and should be on your watch list when the market gets out of this funk. It is up 30% even after last week!
Nothing is free. Investing takes work. Keep searching.
If you want to improve your investment results, and are willing to put some sweat into the process, the San Diego IBD Meetup is the place to be! The goal is to look at market indicators in a timely, unbiased method to educate our members. We do this by primarily by using IBD's CANSLIM method along with monitoring, organizing, and interpreting financial information to greatly improve the odds of investing sucess. The tools and support from the group replaces information from talking heads with time proven techniques. CANSLIM works. Come and see.
