    Alan,

    BCI #70. I notice that many/most of your CC candidates are underfollowed companies like the PCTY example.

    How do you identify these and do you worry about insufficient volume w/ large spreads? I notice the chart on this one shows a rising trend and is that one of the keys?

    thanks,

    James P.

      James,

      The BCI screening process does have liquidity guidelines:

      •The underlying security must have a daily average trading volume of 250,000 shares/day.
      •There must be 100 option contracts of open interest and/or a bid-ask spread of $0.30 or less (OI is identified in our reports)

      We do a technical analysis of all our “eligible” securities and they must satisfy our trend, momentum and volume parameters. We also screen for fundamental requirements and common-sense parameters. All this information is detailed in my books and online video courses with examples.

      Alan
