Think of the Focus List as your personal research department; we do all the legwork and provide you with the best candidates for purchase for the day’s session. However, please understand that while we may own stocks in today’s Focus List and that we may buy stocks in the Focus List during the session, the Focus List is primarily a “Watch List” and NOT a list of stocks to buy at this minute.

The Focus List is designed to make investing easier by providing traders with our daily “Watch List.” Before the start of every trading session, our team scours each sector of the market for the top rated stocks with solid technical patterns — which, in our opinion, may offer a decent buy-in point.

Below is the latest compilation of top-rated stocks that our team feels warrants attention for today’s session. Each stock has what we feel is a positive technical “set up.”
