The Most Important Factor When Buying a Stock

by Amanda Tarlton

Everyone can invest.

But not everyone is good at it.

Successful investing all comes down to picking the right stock at the right time, which is easier said than done, especially in a market that moves up and down unpredictably.

Not to mention that sifting through all the pages of company filings and analyzing every news report to figure out whether a stock is a good buy can be overwhelming.

You might be all set to buy after The Wall Street Journal gives a company a favorable rating - but then Bloomberg might publish contradictory stats.

So how do you choose the stocks that will give you the best bang for your buck?

According to our survey, our readers believe a company's growth potential and dividend are the two biggest indicators of future success.

Things like positive earnings and cash flow, a growing market cap, or a reliable dividend make a stock more attractive to investors. On the other hand, a decreasing bottom line or a sudden dividend cut are signs that trouble is brewing.

All of those factors are very important.

But there's one thing that's even more telling...

Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld has created a system designed to pinpoint the EXACT moment to get in on a stock to make the most money - and it has consistently outperformed the market since 2015.

In fact, it has delivered some of the biggest stock market gains of all time!

The secret? It all comes down to an important "Ignition Event" - as Marc calls it - that happens only once in a company's lifetime. And he's figured out a way to predict when it will happen - so you can snag the stock before this Ignition Event and watch your returns skyrocket.

It's perfect for anyone trying to save more for retirement (which should be all of us) because following this strategy could add more than $125,000 to your retirement portfolio in the coming year alone.

Marc's revealing it for the first time in a live, FREE webinar on Wednesday, May 23. There are limited spots available, so click here to reserve yours today.

Good investing,
