We have better than average statistics across the board. Multiple stocks yield high average returns with stellar winning histories. I'm sure folks are gun shy coming from the losses experienced last month, however, we picked the wrong direction. This month is an easy call for the calls (ha) and we expect the Core to do very well based on its past history. As always, make money and happy trading!
