Last week I gave you ten stocks that were showing unusual volume activity but hadn't changed so much in price yet.

Well I though't I'd try and back up my post last week with some results a week later. Below is the one week performance of the stocks I said might rise.

 

               close(3/23)  close(3/30)

SNBC------3.30------------3.58------ + 8%

PZZI  ------2.00------------2.05------ +3%

OVRL------2.32------------2.18------ -6%

PSMT------33.86------------36.57------ +8%

HBHC------32.47------------33.00------ +2%

HA     ------6.07------------5.99------ -1%

GPOR------32.58------------35.41------ +9%

EEI    ------20.16------------18.87------ -6%

PLAB------8.08------------8.91------ + 9%

WTSLA----3.55------------4.18------ + 18%

 

As you can see, their performance was quite impressive, with an average gain of 4.4%! For comparison the Nasdaq gained just 1.3% over that same time.

 

So this week I thought I'd do it again and give you ten more stocks showing unusual activity, with no price movement. This time, I'll try and improve on the measure a bit and make the assumption that increased volume isn't exactly what we're looking for, but increased money flowing into the stock is what we're looking for. Therefore I'll modify my metric from last week and change:

 

volume --> volume*price


or, in other words, how much money is exactly going into a stock. I believe this is a more accurate gauge of unusual activity because volume can be artificially inflated it the price falls, but a measure of pure money going into the stock accounts for this. Everything else remains the same, and for this week here is what the computer program picks up...
