Do you like to invest with a stock's momentum trends? We ran a screen with that idea in mind.

We began by screening the tech sector for high-growth stocks, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 20%.

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.
