What we do here is analyze the most popular stocks during the week and find opportunities to either join in and ride these momentum names higher, or fade the crowd and bet against them.
We use a variety of sources to generate the list of most popular names. There are so many new data sources available that all we need to do is organize and curate them in a way that shows us exactly what we want: A list of stocks that are seeing an unusual increase in investor interest.
Watch this video for a “behind the scenes” look at our process.
Whether we’re measuring increasing interest based on large institutional purchases, unusual options activity, or simply our proprietary lists of trending tickers… there is a lot of overlap.
The bottom line is there are a million ways to skin this cat. Relying on our entire arsenal of data makes us confident that we’re producing the best list each week and gives us more optionality in terms of finding the most favorable trade setups for our clients.
The trendless action from Equity Markets continues to offer us plenty of favorable setups to choose from, on both the long and short sides! With so many major indexes reclaiming their highs of late, we’ll be focusing on the former in this week’s report.
“Under The Hood” is a value-add for investors of all kinds as we can express our thesis on the market through a variety of different stocks.
Speaking of which… Here’s our latest list of hot stocks:
