Here we offer an interesting way to find companies that have recently outperformed in a persistent way.

In this screen we wanted to analyze large-cap tech stocks that have seen a persistence of days in which the stock beat the S&P 500 benchmark over the last month and little persistence in underperforming the S&P 500, i.e. long winning streaks and short losing streaks, as measured by a ratio of the longest winning streak to the longest losing streak. The screen produced 4 stocks with bullish persistence, listed below.
