Up 54% from $14.91 (2017-05-30)
On May 30, 2017 we profiled OraSure Technologies Inc (OSUR) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $14.91. Within a period of six months, OSUR rose to a high of $23.01, for a return at it's peak of 54%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about OSUR:
- GSA Rank: 85.91 (Our proprietary ranking for OSUR using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 2.65 (Up vs. down volume action of OSUR taken over several weeks)
- Industry Group Rank: 5 (OSUR was in an industry showing strong group action)
- Projected Growth Rate: 16.00% (OSUR's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, OSUR was trading just 3.8% 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.
