In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman discusses three stocks he has on his watchlist, as well as a different metric for each one that he believes will tell him whether it's time to buy, sell, or continue to hold. With Boeing Matt believes investors should be watching the dollar value and per-plane number of sales and compare the results against Airbus and smaller aircraft manufacturers. When it comes to Netflix , he says, investors need to watch how much content is being sold on a per-hour price and how much comes from Netflix. Lastly, with home Home Depot , Matt says we should watch the number of underwater homes in the United States.
