Performance Summary

This approach by no means removes idiosyncratic risks (e.g., bankruptcy, SEC investigation, lawsuits, broad market changes, institutional fund changes, unexpected earnings announcements, loss of corporate officers, and other corporate catastrophes), but some significant probability of accurately classifying a stock into a particular momentum category for current and future momentum returns is well documented to exist in the short term.

Week 36 Selections are as follows:

Positive Acceleration Momentum Stocks

This week I have selected the 4 breakout stocks from the following sectors: 2 healthcare, 1 basic materials, and 1 technology.

These stocks have strong characteristics of positive momentum into acceleration for short-term gains. The typical momentum duration horizon from this analysis appears to be one to three weeks, but as you have seen, many of these stocks carry positive momentum for months. Based on past analysis, it is not uncommon for stocks to sustain the momentum criteria for longer periods. Some stocks from prior week selections remain strong on the parameters screened for high momentum.

The new selections of positive momentum stocks for this week include: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Approach Resources (AREX), Array BioPharma (ARRY), and Celldex Therapeutics (CLDX):

As always, I hope you capture the most beneficial of these breakout candidates and have a profitable week of trading! Also please consider receiving the complete Breakout Forecast report with 12 stocks and additional stock analysis reports as a subscriber to Value & Momentum Breakouts.
