Up 30% from $19.31 (2004-01-13)
On January 13, 2004 we profiled First Cash Financial Services Inc (FCFS) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $19.31. Within a period of six months, FCFS rose to a high of $25.03, for a return at it's peak of 30%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about FCFS:
- GSA Rank: 71 (Our proprietary ranking for FCFS using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 1.46 (Up vs. down volume action of FCFS taken over several weeks)
- Projected Growth Rate: 20.00% (FCFS's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, FCFS was trading just 0.5% 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.
