Up 31% from $88.88 (2016-07-27)
On July 27, 2016 we profiled Nordson Corp (NDSN) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $88.88. Within a period of six months, NDSN rose to a high of $116.01, for a return at it's peak of 31%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about NDSN:
- GSA Rank: 66 (Our proprietary ranking for NDSN using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 1.50 (Up vs. down volume action of NDSN taken over several weeks)
- Industry Group Rank: 35 (NDSN was in an industry showing strong group action)
- Projected Growth Rate: 16.50% (NDSN's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, NDSN was trading just 0.6% 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.
