Interested in adding some growth to your portfolio? For ideas on how to start your search, we ran a screen.

We screened the tech sector for high-growth stocks, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 20%. We then screened for those on winning streaks over the last month, with a persistence of days in which the stock beat the S&P 500 and little persistence of days in which it underperformed the S&P 500.

We measured this by the ratio of days of its longest winning streak over the past month over the number of days of its longest losing streak.
