Up 41% from $197.1 (2017-03-23)
On March 23, 2017 we profiled Coherent Inc (COHR) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $197.1. Within a period of six months, COHR rose to a high of $278.39, for a return at it's peak of 41%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about COHR:
- GSA Rank: 77.23 (Our proprietary ranking for COHR using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 0.81 (Up vs. down volume action of COHR taken over several weeks)
- Industry Group Rank: 24 (COHR was in an industry showing strong group action)
Most importantly, COHR was trading just 2.2% 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.
