Every Monday morning, I wake up to run financial models and look for new opportunities in the market.
None are as powerful as the one I'm about to show you…
I use a lot of metrics to identify the perfect stock. Sometimes I'm looking at price-to-tangible-book value. If the price-to-book is less than zero, I'm interested. This means that the stock is worth less than the sum of its parts. If a stock is trading at 0.5 times its tangible book value, it means that it is deeply undervalued.
If you own that stock and the company is liquidated tomorrow, you could make 100% on your money.
But let's make one thing clear: With the Dow floating above 26,000 it's harder and harder to find can't-miss stocks that are about to take off like a rocket.
That's why I started sorting through the massive universe of publicly traded companies by looking at just one number.
Today, I'm going to show you how I use the VQScore to unlock these potential gains, including a stock I found with 114% upside potential…
How the VQScore Works
The VQScore system tracks the 1,500 most profitable companies on the market and assigns each one a score ranging from 1 to 4.75. To get the score, we use a proprietary calculation that hones in on stocks with the potential to break out to the upside.

This calculation is a blended analysis of a company's underlying earnings power, its profit growth, and its EPS acceleration or deceleration. Then we balance the result against recent demand for the company's shares.
A VQScore of 4 or higher puts a stock in the "Buy Zone."
But I like to take it one step further to find the perfect stock.
What I Look for in a VQScore Stock
To be successful in trading, you need to have an inside edge. You need to have a system or a series of metrics that can help you see the world differently than what other traders perceive. I like to use the VQScore because it acts as a bit of a contrarian indicator at times.
Not only are highly rated companies profitable, but the VQScore allows me to identify breakout stocks in no time.
On Monday, I downloaded a list of stocks with a VQScore of 4.45 or better.
There are almost 15,000 stocks around the globe to choose from, and this system drills my opportunities down to the top 1% of stocks.
Once all that work of evaluating all these balance sheets to find profitable companies is done for me, I can get to work.
Let me show you a company – right now – that I identified using the VQScore.
Not only is it flying under Wall Street's radar right now, it could double your money…
