Daily Top Gun Stock Pick - PNY - 9.27.16

By Don Moenning

Every trading day, we search our database for a brand new Top Gun stock pick that, in our humble opinion, is poised to fly higher.

Our trading philosophy is based on the concept of "own the best and ignore the rest." Thus, we focus our attention solely on the Top Guns of the market -- the top ranked stocks in the strongest industry groups.

How Do We Find the"Top Guns?"

A question we are constantly asked is: How do we find these top gun stocks? Cutting straight to the chase; we follow a disciplined three-step process.

Step 1: Identify the Top Industry Groups
We first determine the market's leadership by identifying the top performing industry groups. From 100 Industry Groups, our proprietary ranking systems (which has been designed in conjunction with the nation's leading independent research firm) identify the top 20 groups based on Group Strength, Momentum and indicators that are specific to the industry being ranked.

Step 2: Isolate the Highest Ranked Companies
From more than 1500 stocks, the system identifies the top 5% in terms of earnings strength, earnings momentum, company performance, and relative strength.

Step 3: Select the Strongest Stocks in the Top Industry Groups
We then merge the two rankings and select the top ranked companies that are in the top Industry Groups. This keeps the portfolio concentrated in the best performing stocks in the leading sectors of the market.

And then every weekend, we rerun the Top Gun ratings and start all over again!
