Yesterday, I recommended SPDR Energy Select Sector ETF (NYSE Arca: XLE) shares as one of the "Best in Breed," a screaming buy according to my proprietary system.
My "black box" scans thousands of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and all the activity and various technical indicators of each of the constituent companies within the fund. It would take a human thousands of hours to pore over all the data – if they didn't go crazy first. Fortunately, I love data, and my system does all the heavy lifting for me, anyway.
The bottom line is, my Best in Breed pick is set to deliver a 12% gain in short order, and the trade I set up on it should double your money in a month or so if you're playing along. (There's still plenty of time to get in on the action if you missed my alert yesterday, too.)
I love finding real outperformance, as you can see. And I've got another opportunity all lined up for us now.
Let's take a look…
