5 Stocks with Recent Price Strength to Tap Market Rally

Wall Street had an impressive 2020 defying the global outbreak of  the novel coronavirus. The stock market rally, which started during the pandemic-ridden April, continued till December, barring some fluctuations in September and October. The rally is likely to last through January and thereafter primarily due to three factors mentioned below.

First, the FDA authorization of two COVID-19 vaccines in December 2020 means that the economy will reopen and gradually operate at the pre-pandemic level. Since the lockdowns imposed in March, the U.S. economy is operating at a significant sub-optimal level.

Second, the U.S. Congress has reached an agreement on the next round of fiscal stimulus for pandemic-led devastations. Major components of the $900 billion package include a direct payment of $600 for every adult and child and approximately $300 billion of the small business paycheck protection program.

Third, an effective control of the U.S. Congress by the Democrats is likely to result in higher fiscal stimulus and quicker implementation of nationwide vaccination in order to curb the pandemic along with higher allotment of funds for infrastructural developments in the near future.

At this stage, wouldn't it be a safer strategy to look for stocks that are winners and have the potential to gain further?

Sounds Good? Here's How to Execute It:

One should primarily target stocks that have freshly been on a bull run. Actually, stocks seeing price strength recently have a high chance of carrying the momentum forward.

If a stock is continuously witnessing an uptrend, there must be a solid reason or else it would have probably crashed. So, looking at stocks that are capable of beating the benchmark that they have set for themselves seems rational.

However, recent price strength alone cannot create magic. Therefore, you need to set other relevant parameters to create a successful investment strategy.

Here's how you should create the screen to shortlist the current as well as the potential winners.
