Top And Bottom Performing Stocks For Week #4

by The MoleJanuary 21, 2018

It’s Sunday so let’s review the performance of last week’s historical top and bottom stock symbols in the S&P 500. As you may recall these symbols are the result of parsing a database containing over 50 years worth of statistical performance data. The idea is to extract the prospective top ten winners and losers of the coming week purely based on historical statistics. The result is then sorted by liquidity and any symbol that is scheduled to report earnings or pass ex-dividend is being excluded.

How To Trade Along

Although being no guarantor of success, the long and short candidates posted here each week are intended to perform along their respective historical bias. One way of trading along would be to simply create a small one-week portfolio by buying the long candidates and selling the short candidates on Monday morning shortly after the open. There are no official stops or targets and all transactions are reversed Friday afternoon right before the bell.

For anyone who wants to keep track I have created a new WP category that allows you to pull all pertinent posts up to date. Eventually I’ll be putting together a summary spreadsheet once we have accumulated sufficient stats.

    Thank you Mole.

    Some thoughts as I awaken and glance at the markets:

    In spite of a government “shutdown” most markets are relatively stable, nothing out of the ordinary.

    This includes equities, bonds, currencies, energy, and metals.

    I personally interpret this as strength.
