What to do if you get a good stock tip

What to do if you get a good stock tip
BY WARREN BOROSON

BOROSON ON MONEY

You get a stock tip from someone whose opinion you respect. What research should you do before actually buying that stock?

Of course, before buying such a stock you should check:

  • Whether your asset-allocation model indicates that you need more exposure to stocks. Or would you have to sell a good stock you already own to buy this one?
  • Whether you are already heavily weighted in the stock's industry.
  • Whether you are considering other stocks that seem even more attractive.
  • Whether the stock's price has been declining -- which might indicate that someone is selling a big bloc. Or that something is amiss with the company that you don't know about.
  • There's also the question of what kinds of stocks you prefer to buy. Growth stocks, those of healthy, growing corporations? Value stocks, where you must wait until other investors finally recognize the value of the stock? Or just a steady-Eddie stock, perhaps one that regularly pays a decent dividend.
