Do you like to invest with a stock's momentum trends? For ideas on how to search for stocks with strong upward momentum, we ran a screen.

We began by screening the tech sector for stocks that have outperformed the market over the last quarter, with quarterly performance above 10%.

We then screened for those stocks also on winning streaks, measured by a persistence of days in which the stock outperformed the S&P 500 and little persistence of days in underperforming the index. We measured this by the ratio of the longest winning streak (in days) divided by the longest losing streak over the last month.
