One of the ways to use this information is to find new sector and stock trends. Given a catalyst, stocks breakout and move rapidly in short time frame. Such stocks then consolidate and have next set of breakouts. That is how multi month rallies start out.

So here is a simple scan for those with Telechart to find tommorrow's leaders.
Price a month ago was greater than 5
C21 >= 5

Price % change in a month is greater than 20%
For this Telechart has a pre loaded scan called "Price Percent Change 1 month"
100*(c-c21)/c21
Value for this has to be over 20

Volume greater than 100000

Capitalization greater than 100 million
This ensures the more speculative stocks get eliminated.

Now if you add all these conditions together in Easyscan, you get a list of stocks up 20% plus in a month.
There are many ways you can slice and dice this list:
  1. Sort by Price Growth Rate 1 year or Percent Change 26 weeks. The one at top are already in rally mode and stock with high relative strength. Those with lower values are just starting out rallies or dead cat bounces.
  2. Sort by Price 1 year range. You can then look at those near top of range and those at bottom. A stock within 40 plus range is a good bet for follow through or pullback buy. Those below 40 are probably dead cat bounce or good for value investors.
Stocks at both end of range spectrum make 25% or 50% moves. Buying both 52 week low and high can get you a 25% plus move on a shorter time frame.

Now to take this further you can look at how many 2%, 4%, 6% , 8%, or 10% plus moves the stock had in its 20% plus moves. Where did they happen and what do they indicate about continuation of possible short term momentum.

Studying stocks categorized by % growth on various time frames can give you a very good insight in to behavior of stocks and momentum on various time frames. Some time frames to study are:
  1. Stocks up 100% plus in a year
  2. Stocks up 300% plus in a year
  3. Stocks up 1000% plus in a year
  4. Stocks up 25% plus in a quarter
  5. Stocks down 25% plus in a quarter
  6. Stocks up 25% plus in a month
  7. Stocks down 25% plus in a month

Pradeep,
Would you use the same criteria (volume, capitalization etc) for stocks down 20% month or would that change. Do you have an easyscan for that? Thanks!

Use same criteria. Same scans will give you negative value for stock down 20%
