Hi sunnym,

The short answer is that the Buy First list is a good way to start with II recommendations. You can watch the long answer here:

Gentex is in the Buy First list.

II's Top 15 buys are stocks with the highest potential upside sorted by the risk rating. This list does not include the Buy First stocks.

You can think of this top 15 buy list as the list of additional opportunities once you have bought all the Buy Firsts.

Coming to the time frame, we don't usually believe in timing the market, but if our invest thesis is correct, the market should recognize the value of the company in 3-5 years. Do note that a stock trading at fair value is still priced to give a return equal to the applied discount rate if our assessment is correct.

Hope this helps.
