Interested in stocks with strong momentum and positive smart money sentiment? We ran a screen with that idea in mind.

We began by screening the tech sector for stocks with positive market sentiment, rallying above their 20-day, 50-day, and 200-day moving averages.

Then we screened for those with bullish sentiment from short sellers, with significant decreases in shares shorted month-over-month. This indicates that short sellers are less bearish on these names than they were a month ago.
