GSA Top Picks   [Back to Top]

  • These stocks have a high GSA Rank, high EPS Growth, and great chart patterns.
  • We manage our own portfolio using stocks that make our Top Picks list.
  • Explanation of some terminology:
    ACLN LIMITED (ASW) $37.81
    Target Price 25-30% from $36.7: $45.88-$47.71; No Profits Before 2001/9/282

    1Date that the Top Pick was selected.
    2We have established target prices based on the price at which the Top Pick was made. Target price is set at 25-30% from the purchase price, EXCEPT for the most powerful of stocks. Hence, we do not take profits until 8 weeks have passed. The "No Profits before [date]" indicates the date when 8 weeks would have passed. At this 8 week point, if the stock has moved up, say 40% or more, we may be sitting on a real winner, and our Target Price message would change to "Longer Term Play".

Screening Criteria   [Back to Top]

GSA Rank (GSAR) Based on our Proprietary Ranking of 30 Fundamental and Technical Indicators.
Suggested Value: Above 70. Lower OK, if Stock has an Exceptional Chart Pattern
Calculation: Based on a Combination of Parameters Like ROE, EPS Rank, Relative and Group Strength, Earnings Surprises, Volatility, Analysts' Rank, etc.
Stock's Discount (%) Measure of a Stock's Over- or Under-Valuation
Suggested Value: Any Negative Value for UnderValued, Positive Value for OverValued. We Stay Away from Stocks Which are Trading at a +25% or more Premium
Calculation: [Forward P/E (Avg of Current & Next FY) / Projected 5-yr Growth Rate - 1] * 100 OR Price/Sales Ratio Less Than 1.0
Projected Growth Rate % Projected 5 year Growth Rate in EPS
Suggested Value: >20%
Calculation: Based on Available Information
Liquidity (%) Measure of a Stock's Tradeablility or Liquidity in the Market
Suggested Value: 0.8% to 1.0% or Higher. Low Liquidity Stocks Have High Bid-Ask Spreads, and More Importantly, Chart Patterns That Are Prone to Failure
Calculation: Average Daily Volume / (Shares Outstanding - Shares Held by Management)
% Above 40 week MovAvg Measure of How Far a Stock is Extended in Price
Suggested Value: New Buys Should Not be Made if Stock is +100% Above its 40 Wk MA

% Below 52 week High Measure of How Far Away the Stock is From Making a New 52 Week High
Suggested Value: 0% to 20% Below its 52 Week High. Stocks Near New Highs Go Higher!
Calculation: [1 - Stock Price / 52 Week High ] * 100
Analysts' Rank Based on Analysts' Buy/Sell Recommendations and Magnitude of Upward Earnings Revision Over the Last Month
Suggested Value: 3.0 or Higher. Above 4.0 is Excellent

Calculation: Average of Stock's Daily Volume Over Last 4 Weeks
Earnings Acceleration Quarterly EPS Acceleration Over Last Two Quarters, e.g., If Last Quarters' EPS Change is 40%, and Prior Quarters' Change is 30%, then Quarterly Earnings are Accelerating. Also Flagged if Last Two Quarters' Earnings are 100% or More.
Suggested Value: Yes
Calculation: None
Basing Pattern Breakout Caused if a Stocks Price Exceeds its Previous High Price Over a Certain Time Period (Ranging from 8 to 52 Weeks). This provides an Indication of the Stock Clearing Prior Resistance Levels. Check a Daily Chart to See if the Breakout Came on Good Volume.
Suggested Value: Yes (U=Upside Breakout, D=Downside Breakout, N=No Breakout)
Calculation: It's Somewhat Complicated!
Accumulation / Distribution Measure of whether the stock is under accumulation or distribution.
Suggested Value: 1.0 and Above Signals Accumulation
Calculation: Ratio of Up Volume to Down Volume Taken Over 10 Weeks. >1.0 Signals Accumulation; <1.0 Signals Distribution
Down Trendline Breakout Use to find stocks breaking out after a trend has been established. The computer picks the longest trendline (minimum 10 wks) if more than one exists. Breakout would have occured this week. See our Case Studies.
Suggested Value: Yes, but Use Selectively (DTV=Downtrend Violation, 0=No Downtrend Violation)
