Concentrate on the Strongest Candidates
Our analysis techniques utilize a survival-of-the-fittest strategy, which entails weeding out the weakest candidates at every step of the analysis. This strategy works best if you start with a large group of stocks—say, 10 to 20—instead of just a few. Researching stocks takes time and effort. Eliminating weak contenders as soon as you discover them enables you to focus your research on the strongest candidates. Be ruthless. There is no point in wasting time researching stupid ideas.
