Apprenticed Investor: Six Keys to Stock Selection

Tscm_1I almost forgot! The latest "Apprenticed Investor" column is up, and its titled Six Keys to Stock Selection.

By now, you’ve had it with all the theory. I know what you really want: some advice on how to select stocks. So that’s our goal today. We start with a simple checklist:

1. How’s the Chart?

2. How’s the Sector?

3. What’s Your Thesis?

4. Stop-Loss

5. Risk-Reward

6. News and Earnings

I have several future columns queued up that focus on helping you develop a methodology for own stock selection — a full set of tools to see if a stock is worthy of your attention.
