StockWatchIndex "QuickPicks" Top Performers For 2017
StockWatchIndex New Research

Based on the new research we have entered into during the last few months of 2017, we expect 2018 to be even stronger, barring any nasty surprises in the general stock market, based on our political climate. As usual, for research coverage, we are very careful in picking only companies with leading edge, disruptive technologies and business plans and that are run by a solid management team and are expected to be able to sustain and expand their business model for years to come. No short term "Flash in the Pan" here.
Two New SWI Promising Picks for 2018

Ocean Thermal Energy and Fossil-Fuel-Free Energy. We initiated Coverage on Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTCQB:CPWR) on November 30, 2017, after having met with management several times and hearing about the company's plans for 2018. We believe that 2018 will be a exciting and defining year for OTE. Fossil-Free-Fuel Energy is maybe the most crucial problem to solve for most developing and developed Nations alike, today, and should be on top of the list for every investor..

LiveWire Ergogenics - The SWI Exception. LiveWire Ergogenics, Inc (OTC:LVVV) was our most unusual pick for 2017, as we typically do not cover "triple-zero" penny stocks. We believe LVVV will be the exception. We initiated coverage on August 6, 2017 at a share price of $0.0007. Since then LVVV's share price has reached $0.02 at close of 2017, with an average volume of 8.7 Million shares per day during the last thirty (30) days of 2017, reaching a peak of 49.6 Million shares on December 22, 201. This is the largest volume any of our stocks ever had, no matter what exchange or price. We expect LVVV (a California company) to expand its position in 2018, supported by the legalization of cannabis in California, beginning the first day of 2018.
Transparency is the Key - Outperforming Major Indexes . If you have followed us for some time, you know that we "put our money where our mouth is" by acquiring positions for every stock in the SWI Portfolio. To make our performance stats completely transparent to our readers, we have consistently and frequently published performance reports for the portfolio since inception, nearly three years ago. The SWI Portfolio has consistently outperformed the major indexes and most "Big-Firm" research portfolios; and the gap is widening. Our research team is always scouting the markets for new and exceptional opportunities to add to the portfolio. We have several candidates under consideration to be added during the first few weeks of the new year.
