Up 48% from $15.2 (2016-08-15)
On August 15, 2016 we profiled Vocera Communications Inc (VCRA) as a Top Stock Pick
to our members at $15.2. Within a period of six months, VCRA rose to a high of $22.48, for a return at it's peak of 48%. Obviously, one cannot sell exactly at the peak, but here is what we had observed about VCRA:
- GSA Rank: 86.1 (Our proprietary ranking for VCRA using fundamental AND technical factors)
- Accum/Dist Rank: 1.77 (Up vs. down volume action of VCRA taken over several weeks)
- Industry Group Rank: 38 (VCRA was in an industry showing strong group action)
- Projected Growth Rate: 20.30% (VCRA's projected 5-year growth rate)
Most importantly, VCRA was trading just 5.4% 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.
