More than 10% gainhighly negative ,5-10% gain, negative, No correction from  recent peak,/or 0-5% correction,neutral, 5-10% correction neutral, above 10% positive, more than 10% highly positive

2) Sector prospect

Monopoly or very high barrier to entry, positive

Highly defensive/ or at the trough of cyclical, positive (Earnings resilience at the face of crisis)

3) Company credibility

No red flags, positive

Strong cash flow, good valuation- debt ratio, consistent margin and revenue and profits with sector, all factors in highly positive, only 1 missing, positive
