I can at least list the 15 recommended stocks that will give you a good basis for the first three months of 2016.
The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well. More concern is on geo-political events that could cause a pullback. There is a very good chance that the week will be flat so individual stock choices will be important.
The market was generally good last week and should be good this week as well even though the indicators for the entire market are not extremely optimistic. More concern is on geo-political events that could cause a pullback. Be cautious with any stock that is setting a 52-week (or close to it) as I do not believe the big investors are excited about big new growth.
