Up 38% from $52.43 (2009-04-27)
On April 27, 2009 we profiled Sohu.com Inc (SOHU) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $52.43. Within a period of six months, SOHU rose to a high of $72.29, for a return at it's peak of 38%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about SOHU:
- GSA Rank: 69.39 (Our proprietary ranking for SOHU using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 1.12 (Up vs. down volume action of SOHU taken over several weeks)
- Discount : -75% (Our measure of SOHU's valuation)
- Industry Group Rank: 17 (SOHU was in an industry showing strong group action)
- Projected Growth Rate: 42.30% (SOHU's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, SOHU was trading just 38.0% 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.
