81 Stocks Returning 35%+ the Past 4 Weeks

TweetThis
As we are about to suffer (barring that miracle rally in the last 30 minutes) only the 2nd day of the past 25 where the S&P falls more than 0.5%, I thought I'd take a look at the best performers of the past 4 weeks. We have sold off many stocks the past 3 weeks in which the valuation jumped 25-35%+ so I was curious how common these types of move have been. The answer - quite! This data will exclude week 1 of the 5 week rally when many stocks made large oversold reversals. From there, another 81 names over $750M in market cap have been able to tack on at least 35%.

The criteria for this list are
  • Market capitalization $750 Million+
  • Average trading volume 200K+
  • Stock price $10+
  • Return of 35%+
Please note AIG is only on this list due to a huge reverse split... otherwise it would not of made the stock price requirement (which is there to exclude nanny state companies like AIG). Those marked in green we are long, those marked red we are short. Some remarkable performances off the March bottom in car rental companies i.e. Avis (CAR). Overall the list is dominated by "early cycle recovery" stocks (retail, industrial), along with the home builders, Las Vegas casinos, REITs, and strangely coal names. We covered (short) a few of the REITs on this list (thankfully) a few months ago...
