What are the 2 Most Consistent Stock Picking Strategies?
Stocks rose again on Wednesday. Unfortunately for the 5th straight time they came up short of breaking out to new highs.
It is becoming more and more evident that 2014 will not be as easy for investors as 2013. And that a slow grind higher or perhaps even sideways is in the cards. So that begs the question:
What stock picking strategies will work best in 2014?
Historically there are two proven methods for finding stocks that outpace the general market in virtually any conditions.
1) Insider Buying: Corporate executives are highly incentivized to boost the stock price of their firms because they are given massive amounts of shares as compensation. So it speaks VOLUMES when they reach into their own pockets to buy even more of these shares. It means they are abundantly confident that the company will excel in the months ahead. Academic research has clearly proven the merits of following these insider buys.
2) Positive Earnings Estimate Revisions: Yes, this is the flavor of the house here at Zacks and is the driving force of our Zacks Rank stock rating system. Yet with our independently audited +26% annual return, including down and sideways years, it has more than stood the test of time.
Now imagine combining these 2 proven strategies together to find the most powerful and timely trades. And imagine that 5 new picks were being released Monday morning January 27th.
Imagine no further. This is reality. And it is to be found in our new Zacks Insider Trader portfolio.
Given today's market, right now is the best time to claim full access to all of our private buy and sell recommendations. You'll even see the stocks that are so exclusive they've been closed to the public. What a perfect way to bolster your portfolio with the best short-term trades and long-term investments no matter what the market is doing.
