⚠️ Note that the “HOLD” status of most of those companies is due to the bad behavior of their prices during the last 2 weeks, which has flattened down a bit the SMA30. According to the RQM buying signal, caution should rule. Because they are the best quality companies, most likely this depressive episode will go by and everything will be recovered with a rebound. But should be then and not before the moment to go shopping. Precautionary principle holds. ⚠️
Now your turn:
- Has any of those companies a business model you fully understand?
- Do they have a competitive advantage with respect to their competitors?
- Do they operate in industries where you already have enough exposure?
- Are they diversified companies (country and currency wise)?
- Did they seize any advantage during the latest downturn?
Remember: You have the last word and the responsibility of your investments is up to you. The RQM System “only” suggests a set of stocks with a high probability of being long-term winners.
