Screen of the Week written by Kevin Matras of Zacks Investment Research:
Over the last few weeks, I have found myself screening for stocks with the
best Relative Price Changes in an effort to determine whether a stock is good
Of course, this doesn't mean you should only look at its price change. But by
including those kinds of things in your screening, some very interesting
stocks will come up.
You'll also notice I said relative price strength. Of course, there are
periods when virtually everything is going down. So screening for absolute
positive price changes will often times come up with zero results in these
periods, just when you need them the most.
But also, when the market is doing nothing but going up, you want to get into
the pacesetters and outperformers, not the laggards that are going up only
because the rising tide is raising all the ships.
So using the relative price strength will always put the outperformers on your
list in both good times and bad. In this week's screen, I'm looking for
relative price change winners that also have the fundamentals to potentially
make these gains lasting and continue.
