Earnings Momentum

Our Earnings Momentum Strategy seeks to achieve exceptional returns by investing in stocks exhibiting accelerating earnings and earnings estimates.

This strategy produces up to 3 companies and we recommend re-balancing the strategy once per week, every Monday* morning, for optimal performance. When you re-balance, you will simply buy any new recommendations that appear on our list and sell any recommendations that no longer appear on our list. Accordingly, you should only maintain ownership of the stocks listed each week under our "Current Holdings".

Our website is fully updated by 7am US-EST every Monday* morning. Our 'Weekly Alert' email (delivered every Monday* morning by 8am US-EST) will reiterate the current holdings and detail any suggested portfolio changes from the previous week.

We recommend placing all trades as market orders (within the first 30 minutes of trading). We realize this can be a challenge for some Members based upon their personal schedules as well as their geographic location. Currently, more than 30% of our Members reside outside the United States. If trading within the first 30 minutes is not possible for you, then we simply suggest you place your trades as close to Monday's* opening as possible.

We currently do not recommend using a trailing stop loss when implementing this strategy. This recommendation is based upon our own in-house testing and is simply intended to provide you with helpful guidance on how best to achieve optimal returns when executing this strategy. This guidance can change at any given time and this page will be updated accordingly when any change is suggested. It is important to note that not all Members implement this guidance and when doing so, their individual results can vary quite widely.

If any trailing stop was triggered during any given week, you will see an asterisk (*) next to the respective Symbol within the transaction history. The "Portfolio %" column is simply the blended average performance of all the stocks within that given weekly period.


*In cases where Monday is a Holiday and markets are closed, re-balancing should be conducted on Tuesday morning. Accordingly, our website will be fully updated by 7am US-EST that morning and our 'Weekly Alert' email will also be delivered by 8am US-EST that morning.
