You might wish to purchase William O'Neils latest book, titled "How to Make Money in Stocks - Complete Investing System." I picked up a copy at Barns and Noble during Christmas at a price of $29.95. It has a green cover. There is a CD or DVD at the back of the book called "Action Plan".

I have several of his books and look at them periodically. He uses fundamental information and applies technical logic or reasoning to determine his entry and exit points. Visit your local library and check out Investors Business Daily. The Monday issue carries a listing of 100 top performing stocks. Using TC2000 from John Worden, and searching through the stocks using a momentum indicator or relative strength as measured against the SP-500 or other major indice of your choice will give you a hit on approximately 25 of those top 100 stocks shown in the Monday publication.

I have chased too many companies and lost money for several years. Yes I am in an NAIC or BI investment club (since 1995). Making the right decisions is difficult for me.

Now I am beginning to find screens and methods that have provided some good entry for companies that perhaps have no earnings or sales growth. One recent example is LVS which I first bought around $18 and followed it up to the $50 range. This is not the BI or IBD methodology.
