Herrand Associates Wealth Management Singapore, Tokyo Japan on 2 Quick Ways to Uncover the Best Investments in the Stock MarketBy Kaye R. Cochran
Investors have two major ways to find new investments that are the top-down approach and the bottom-up approach.
From where I stand, both methods have their merit. In fact, the goal of each approach should be the same thing, that is, to find good investments in the vast world of stocks. But, at the same time, these two approaches are quite different.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the key differences between these two strategies.
The top-down approach
Investors who use the top-down approach tend to take a broad view before focusing on a particular sector to find suitable investments. For instance, recent reports suggest that interest rates might increase soon. With that framework, top-down investors may look at industries that can benefit from interest rate hikes, as such the financial industry.
The focus then shifts towards companies that operate within the financial industry. This method allows investors to concentrate on growing industries, or companies that are primed to benefit from any macroeconomic changes.
In my opinion, the key advantage of the top-down approach is that investors can focus their energy and time on specific industries. That would be mean less time is wasted casting their net too widely.
On the flipside, investors who use this approach limit may themselves to certain industries, and may miss out on other investment opportunities. As a result, there may be investment gems that are missed out.
The bottom-up approach
In contrast, the bottom-up approach involves making investment decisions based on the individual attributes of a company. Here, investors will tend to overlook the broader economy and focus on companies that they think have strong fundamental characteristics.
To sieve out good companies, they avoid industry-specific screening but will be open to any company that meets their investment criteria.
The key advantage of this method is that investors can find good investments, regardless of the industry that it operates in.
However, as you might have guessed, the bottom-up approach can sometimes be taxing and time-consuming as investors might have sieve through a large number of companies to find the few that are worth investing in.
A Foolish takeaway
Whether it is top-down or bottom-up, both methods have its pros and cons. As investors, we might want to consider employing the stock screening approach that suits our investment style. After all, the investor’s goal is to find the investments that can earn good returns in the stock market.
My name is Jean Louis, I am European, doing business in African countries. We are opening new gold mines for our clients, with main product being gold bullion, and create wealth generation plans. I am very practical, and like to research new world markets, finding differences in prices in one economy zone and connecting to the other zone. This way we are discovering new markets, with high demand and quicker returns. We engage in international trade transactions that may bring even 100% profit on top of the return of investment. Laboratory instruments, boats, trucks, machinery, chemicals, those are samples of trading goods.

HI, My name is Fred Albert and this is my story. Before today I was regretting my existence on the surface of this earth because of my financial situation which was very bad, I had no savings or disposal income at that time. The total money in bank account was less than $2130 which was very bad for 27 year old man, that state made me in a weak condition because i was broke and had my family bills to cover, this situation lead me to make intensive research on some ways to make money without getting ripped-off , I read countless articles on many blogs and websites about making money online the list at that time required a start-up of $25000 and that was above my total money, Raising that money was going to be a big challenge, so i asked all my friends for quick solution because i was drowning financially and needed a quick solution. I reached out to a friend who makes income online from blogging for little loan but that didn’t go well between us. Blogging about tech stuffs could make this guy rich then why can’t i try this too, but later realizing that i wasn’t ready because of my zero idea about blogging and source of visitors to my websites if i ever planned to start. After few days he got back to me and decided that he was going help by sending me a link to my email, which i was to open and watch if i wanted to change my financial status, I was skeptical for days trying to avoid getting the wrong information and making mistake. So i decided to click the YOUTUBE link on my phone which redirected me to youtube. The video got me motivated to get rich within a short period of time, I was interested in what the video was offering because it was different from others and the video clearly explained new ways of getting financial freedom, I quickly bought the idea and requirement after watching the video which was less than $5. I was amazed when i got my first income online after 1 week of trial. Today i can brag and share how i moved from $2130 to $17500 in total revenue paid in my paypal account by PSD Tuts+, ACHS, and the host of others.
I wasn’t paid to share this but I chose to do so because helping each other reach financial breakthrough is a basic need for everyone which will make the world a better and safer place to live. This article am sharing would increase a change your financial status.
