Focus List

A list of securities that an investment bank or investment advisory recommends buying or selling. Each bank's or advisory's research department compiles the focus list and updates it periodically. The research department uses a number of criteria in writing the focus list, including growth potential, riskiness, and business practices.

Sometimes, a watchdog group may compile its own focus list of companies to patronize or boycott based on their corporate ethics or lack thereof.
