Thanks for writing in. Anyone who is looking to "invest tomorrow in 3-5 stocks" sounds like a potentially undisciplined investor who may not be set on following the fact-based investment system. They may be on the road to misusing the information we work so hard to provide! We are always concerned that these investors' subsequent failures will incorrectly be blamed on the proven system or our hard work. Hopefully you picked up on the fact that leadership has waned and the market (M criteria) has recently entered a correction. If you did not read the latest market commentaries and pick up on that, maybe we cannot help you.
The CANSLIM.net website began with us having a keen interest in finding the high-ranked stocks that were likely to appear in bold the next morning in a section of the newspaper that used to be called "Where The Big Money Is Flowing" but now may be called "Stocks On The Move." If you are not familiar with those sections, I am sorry I lost you. Anyhow, you are right that sorting the Leaders List by %DAV helps you see where there are high-ranked issues with heated activity which may warrant a closer look.
We scan by volume%, and % from 52-week high every day, continuously looking and reporting explicitly on the best leaders. Members who have UPGRADED have found it rewarding to have access to the expert notes and detailed analysis with annotated graphs we publish - it saves them time and makes that process of narrowing down the long lists of stocks to actionable rules-based buys easier! The educational tone of our fundamental and technical analysis helps investors build skill in the system of maximizing gains and limiting losses, as we call out support and resistance levels to watch and discuss buy or sell signals that have occurred based upon price/volume, moving averages, and trendlines.
When you are logged into the website at your current membership level, via the top green navigation bar under the "Archived Reports" tab you can view old Mid-day Breakouts Reports, After Market Updates, and monthly newsletters that were published 6 months ago or earlier. Those are primary parts of the service you would be paying for to obtain access. We believe that allowing you to view the actual reports we have published gives you the fairest way to see if our detailed notes and analysis with annotated graphs is going to be helpful to you in knowing how to maximize gains and minimize losses per the investment system's guidelines on an ongoing basis.
We believe that people who take the time to appreciate our work stand to get a most rewarding experience from it when they have determined to make an ongoing effort at employing this proven system. To manage and meet these expectations we do not offer shorter term memberships.
One of my favorite phrases is, "Trying is lying, and to do is to be true." The assumption here is that you may stand to gain or lose tens of thousands or much more by making a couple of better buy or sell decisions. On this end, we hope that you having our expert input at your disposal each day fully justifies the price over the course of a year or two. If you pass on the opportunity to upgrade, we still wish you the utmost success using the great free resources we have, since 1996, gladly provided.
UPGRADE your membership to gain unlimited access to all of the analysis we provide on high-ranked leaders for the next year!
