STOCKS

For those whose mantra is buy high and sell even higher, Freda Ding of Kapitall.com screened for stocks on hot streaks.

We talk a lot about cheap, undervalued, value stocks at Kapitall. But there are also stocks that are good performers regardless of the underlying assets. In this list, we looked at a few of these securities that have positive earnings trends that are outperforming the market. With the S&P reaching new highs, these are worth a look.

Our screening criteria included:

  • Consistent Outperformance of the S&P 500 Measured in Days

  • Positive Earnings

  • EPS Growth Quarter Over Quarter

  • Sales Growth Quarter Over Quarter

Several momentum stocks out in the market are highly speculative i.e. they don't have any earnings yet! So we made sure to screen for stocks that are a already profitable and bit safer.
