3 Key Rules For How To Buy Stocks

Keep in mind that earnings growth is just one factor to track when looking for the best stocks to buy and watch. In addition, make sure to follow these three key rules for how to buy stocks.

While Schnitzer Steel, The Container Store, Goldman Sachs, Atkore, Align Technology and others show strong earnings estimates for 2021, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll beat Wall Street expectations or shoot higher if they do beat.

Especially during earnings season, it’s critical to have and follow sound buy rules and sell rules. You never know how a stock will react to the latest quarterly report, and you never want to let a big gain in a stock you own disappear.

Following a simple three-step routine helps you stay profitable and protected, and ready to take advantage of today’s fastest-growing stocks when opportunities arise.
