And, yes, I was looking at the performance of each on the home page, not realizing that they didn't all cover the same length of time.


The best advice I can give is to chose a couple of the stocks that you find interesting and read up on them, get to know about them (what they do and how. Leave the financial's to the gurus.)

Past performance is like a barometer, you tend to look at these lists for the companies that show the most green growth, but fact is, green or red it is all based on yesterdays news.

What we hope for is to take those companies that we feel are financially sound with great products or services for the times and find the future winners. You need to remember that markets and customers needs change and with it the performance of the stock. The markets are down so all you can strive for is to locate those that offer the best chance of growth and recover .... like surfing ... you gott'a position yourself for when the wave comes :)

Can be frustrating at times but rewarding.
