Time to start doing a little play, shall we?
The 5S-5S is a new series that is being brought today. It consists of a portfolio of 5 stocks from 5 different sectors. Today is the day we choose stocks based on a set of rules. Each stock will have a complete case study to be presented later on.
- Investing involves risks, and the value of your investment will fluctuate over time and you may gain or lose money;
- Past performance is no guarantee of future results;
- Not financial advice.
- The 5 Sectors will be chosen according to TipRanks’ statistics, from the 1st to the 5th, and reevaluated monthly. News and updates can come at any time;
- Only 1 stock will be chosen per sector;
- A company will only enter the portfolio if it has fundamentals (valuation, growth, profitability, and an expectation of return);
- A company will only leave the portfolio if its sector is no longer listed among Top-5 or it loses fundamentals;
- The initial portfolio will have a virtual value of $100,000 (ten thousand dollars) that will be equally divided among the 5 stocks;
- The companies must be traded within the United State’s stock market.
