The beauty of our CAN SLIM method is that we need not "expect," "hope," or "wish for" with respect to market action. We will take what the market gives us and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. We always look for stocks with strong relative strength. But investors should understand that it is not prudent to blindly buy stocks that have a high relative strength simply because they have been performing well. This is the essence of momentum investing, and it can get you into trouble. Rather, one should base buying decisions on sound fundamental and technical analysis. Only invest in stocks that have strong fundamentals (i.e., good sales, earnings, margins, etc.) and that are breaking out of sound base structures on heavy volume.
