As Seen in the March 21st Issue of Barron's (pg 31)
Kenneth J. Gruneisen, Founder and Contributing Writer, www.CANSLIM.net
I bought a copy of the March 21, 2011 Barron's for my mom who never uses the computer and would not likely spend $5.00 to buy a copy. She will be proud that on page 31 www.canslim.net was mentioned favorably by the bona-fide financial publication that is world renowned.
It was flattering to be included in an article referring to the creator of the fact-based investment system. Furthermore, it was extremely complimentary to have CANSLIM.net services put in a category with $1,500 per year Zacks Investment Research services. Len Zacks, founder of Zacks Investment Research, discovered the power of earnings estimates revisions to enable profitable investment decisions and has been providing services since 1978.
Compared to others the article "Where to Gather Momentum" by Mike Hogan mentioned, CANSLIM.net is a relative newcomer, launched in 1996, and introducing our first pay services in 2002. Today, unlimited access to basic premium services is still provided to members who complete a free registration (no credit card required), and all new members are entitled to special savings on UPGRADES. For 30 days after completing a new registration members can get the 1-year upgrade for only $349 ($50 savings over the standard 1-year membership rate).
CANSLIM.net offers 2 free daily reports via email opt-in, a Market Commentary, and a Breakouts Report, however both free reports carry a "warning label" that reminds readers the reports do not include the most timely analysis on hand-picked stocks experts have noted for consideration as most action-worthy buy candidates. If you navigate to any of the Company Profile pages CANSLIM.net makes available all archived notes and articles with annotated graphs published 6 months ago or more (the service UPGRADE allows members to access the most current analysis, while older entries are freely shared for demonstration purposes).
CANSLIM.net republishes, with permission, a bi-weekly article from John Murphy free for all members. Impressions that Murphy made on me at the 1996 Money Show event in Chicago really drove home the importance of choosing stocks in a strong sector. We refer to it in our reports as the L criteria, looking for leading industry groups and choosing superior stocks in the strongest groups (industry groups producing the greatest preponderance of all stocks new 52-week highs.) With permission, we also include annotated charts from www.stockcharts.com and we have designed CANSLIM.net reports with links and quick hover-over features that many members use as helpful reference tools.
Hogan rightly cautioned that momentum investing can be risky while repeating Murphy's warning that there are "no guarantees", however, all investing can be risky. The most important thing to do after making any disciplined buy decisions is to always limit the damage when the market turns against you, as inevitably it will do at times. Rule #1 in the fact-based investment system we support is to always limit losses by selling if any stock falls more than -7% from your purchase price. Investing only gets riskier if you do not follow any rules designed to preserve your precious capital.
To many, momentum investing is simplified as "buy high, sell higher" which counts on the "greater fool" wisdom. That is what largely inspired the Gardner brothers to tell everyone to "invest foolishly" through their Motley Fool forum on America Online, but it is crucial to look beyond just the (technical) price/volume patterns in charts and choose stocks which also have bullish (fundamental) characteristics including strong quarterly and annual earnings growth.
With respect to the favorable Credit Suisse study that Hogan's article mentions, and the reference to independent research (no doubt, meaning American Association of Individual Investors' screening results) proving that the investment system CANSLIM.net supports beat the S&P 500 Index over the past 15 years, we will gladly wear the "momo" badge with pride. Investors seeking momentum should not be reckless, they should be selective and disciplined. We are not saying it is easy, and anyone who says that it is easy is lying.
We are glad to have your help in letting investors know where they can find reliable support on their quest for "above average" returns. Thank you for passing along the news about www.CANSLIM.net.
