Check My Latest Upgrades and Downgrades Before You Buy

This week I have 41 important upgrades and downgrades for you. As we approach earnings season, making sure you’re in the right stocks at the right time is of critical importance. 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 41 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.
