Up 35% from $70.1 (2017-02-23)
On February 23, 2017 we profiled Galapagos NV (GLPG) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $70.1. Within a period of six months, GLPG rose to a high of $94.88, for a return at it's peak of 35%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about GLPG:
- GSA Rank: 74.69 (Our proprietary ranking for GLPG using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 2.07 (Up vs. down volume action of GLPG taken over several weeks)
- Industry Group Rank: 2 (GLPG was in an industry showing strong group action)
Most importantly, GLPG was trading just 4.7% 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.
