The following is a list of stocks in a new uptrend, as defined by the Average Directional Index, or ADX(14) index. All of these stocks are more efficient than their competitors…

To create the list, we started with a universe of stocks in an uptrend that have an ADX(14) value above +20, which signals strengthening upward momentum. We then reduced the size of this universe by only focusing on companies that are more efficient than their competitors, as defined by the trailing twelve month receivables turnover, inventory turnover and asset turnover ratios.
