September 4, 2018

During these busy times, it pays to stay on top of the latest profit opportunities. And today's blog post should be a great place to start. After taking a close look at the latest data on institutional buying pressure and each company's fundamental health, I decided to revise my Portfolio Grader recommendations for 54 big blue chips. Chances are that you have at least one of these stocks in your portfolio, so you may want to give this list a skim and act accordingly.

P.S. Starting this week, we're moving away from daily blog posts. I'll still post this weekly ratings change blog at the beginning of each week—I know many of you enjoy viewing it. And on Thursdays, I'll publish a meatier, more robust feature that you can really sink your teeth into. As always, I'll deliver your Market 360 Weekly Roundup straight to your inbox on Thursday afternoon.

Thank you for being a loyal reader of the Navellier Growth blog. While we're moving away from daily blog posts, I will continue delivering the stock, economic and market commentary that you've come to expect from our website.
