Here we offer an interesting way to find companies that have recently outperformed in a persistent way. Although past performance is no guarantee of future results, winning streaks may indicate upward momentum and positive sentiment.

We ran a screen on low-debt stocks seeing rapid dividend growth, comparing the current year dividend per share estimate to the trailing-twelve-month dividend per share. We screened these stocks for those that have seen a persistence of days in which the stock beat the S&P 500 benchmark over the last month and little persistence in underperforming the S&P 500, i.e. long winning streaks and short losing streaks, as measured by a ratio of the longest winning streak to the longest losing streak.
