Frequently Asked Questions
The Focus List is an idea list - not a portfolio. We may be trading any of these names at any time, and sometimes in either direction, depending on how they are playing out in real-time.
Profitable windows of opportunity have always arisen in any given market year, even in challenging market years such as 2015 and 2016. During such periods, names on our list tend to, on balance, outperform, though naturally, we guide members to keeping risk to a minimum by suggested entry and exit points.
That said, each investor will have their own investment style and risk tolerance levels thus our Focus List Review is meant to be merely a guide based on how we see entry and exit points. Indeed, some members prefer a longer term approach using the 10- and 50-day moving averages in conjunction with the 7-week sell rule to keep them in position for weeks instead of days.
Here is the disclaimer just below the Focus List in our weekend Focus List Review piece emailed out to members:
The VoSI Focus List is a compilation and reference list of stocks for which Pocket Pivot or Buyable Gap-Up Reports have been issued. It is not intended as a "buy list" or a list of immediately actionable recommendations. Stocks on the list may or may not be in proper buy positions, and investors should exercise discretion and proper judgement in determining when and where stocks on the Focus List can be purchased. The following notes are intended to assist in this process. Please note that members can enlarge the Focus List image by clicking on the body of the email and then holding the Control Key while pressing the "+" key until it is large enough to read.
