Your Portfolio Should Look Like an MLB All-Star Team

Jordan Kimmel  |

hallmark of “Magnet® Stocks”–accelerating revenues, margins, and cash flow. Companies in my portfolio also have to be trading at a discount to their growth rate and have positive price momentum. As always, by the very nature of the excellence in what I look for, there cannot be very many of them. The same is true for the Major League All-Stars.

I use the Magnet® Stock Selection Process to score all public companies on 19 different criteria. Most of what I look for is outlined in my books, Magnet Investing and The Magnet Method of Investing. I then breakdown the list by sectors and market capitalization. These lists of both “Top Magnets” and “Bottom Magnets” become the starting point of how I create portfolios. I am willing to use both long and shorts in my portfolios.

Sports have never been bigger than they are today, but there are different names on the All-Star teams. I grew up with names like Johnny Bench, Tom Seaver, and Willie Mays playing in the All-Star Game. You would not want to have them in your lineup today though. It is the same with investing in the stock market. Each new bull market is led by different companies. Magnet helps me identify the new names; the current leaders. I’ll leave the “prospects” and “has been” names for others…I want the current leaders in my portfolio.

As always, I’ll share some current ideas in The Investview Magnet Fund. None of these are recommendations, but all are in my current portfolio. As the market is currently a little “over-bought” I’ll only share a few of our long ideas.

Current longs: Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (TARO) , Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (QCOR) , ARRIS Group, Inc. (ARRS)

Current shorts: Quidel Corp. (QDEL) , LinkedIn Corp. (LNKD)
