Up 48% from $11.37 (2012-01-31)
On January 31, 2012 we profiled Akorn Inc (AKRX) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $11.37. Within a period of six months, AKRX rose to a high of $16.87, for a return at it's peak of 48%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about AKRX:
- GSA Rank: 90.54 (Our proprietary ranking for AKRX using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 1.06 (Up vs. down volume action of AKRX taken over several weeks)
- Discount : -2% (Our measure of AKRX's valuation)
- Projected Growth Rate: 28.50% (AKRX's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, AKRX was trading just 5.9% off it's 52-week high price, and had a breakout from a sideways price consolidation pattern, a clear signal to time our position. It is imperative to not only buy the best stocks that are fundamentally sound, but also to time your purchase correctly.
