In the game of stocks, winning means reaching a higher price.
However, finding a win-win strategy is easier said than done. When the markets are choppy marked by widespread global growth concerns, it is difficult for even an insightful investor to come up with a foolproof approach.
One could resort to commonly used techniques to find beaten down stocks that have the potential to recover faster than others. However, even such investment choices bear the risk of disappointment. Particularly, one could be stuck in a value trap if the inherent weakness in a selected stock is not identified.
So, wouldn’t it be a safer strategy to look for stocks that are winners currently and have the potential to gain further?
