The Few Stock Winners of the Past Month

TweetThis
The action continues to be horrid as we make new lower lows almost daily.  After the punishment the past three weeks, I thought it would be interesting to construct a list of stocks that could at least stay flat over the past month to pick out names with high relative strength in an awful market.  The caveat is some of these are buyouts (HK) or rumored buyouts, while others are stocks driven up via good earnings  (which doesn't make them bad buys necessarily).  Also a handful like PM are the 'go to hide' type of stocks.

I used some parameters such as
  1. >$10 stock price
  2. >200K average volume
  3. >$300M market cap

Here are the 67 names although with today's action a few may have fallen off the bottom of the list
