I looked for FLL in the latest newsletter – today it is trading for $2.77 a share – so what category is it in? Why isn’t it listed? And ZIX Corp has busted over $3.00 and is not mentioned in the Follow-Through stocks. SNAK is listed in the Follow-Through section but not in the Earnings section. Am I in error thinking there are some gaps in reporting here? Bill McGrath
Bill, both of those companies were removed some time ago for reasons that were explained in the newsletter. There are two reasons that companies are removed after going to the Follow-Through: (1) The company doubled and fell 25%, and thus subscribers should be out; or (2) the company has been in the Follow-Up for over 2 years without making much of a move. Both of those companies are still in our Database.
Sorry for the delayed response, and thank you for your interaction!
