The problem is, these requirements really narrows down the pickings. In fact, they narrow them down to only about 220 stocks out of the almost 3,600 stocks I follow.
So for all these people looking for stocks in companies that do not seek to relentlessly improve profits and shareholder value: Good news: You have a lot to choose from -- the other 3,380 stocks that do not get my top ratings.
Courtesy of StockCharts.comTake a look at OCN's one year chart -- OCN has been in an uptrend as it recently broke out of a sideways trend. It's also currently hitting new, all-time highs. OCN was a $2 stock in 2008 and it is a $56 stock today, and I think it can go higher. It is a stock that I own at Gunderson Capital Management and I fully expect to own it two years from now as well.
