5 Stocks Still Poised to Soar on Relative Price Strength

Financial markets worldwide have been surging since drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech announced successful data from their COVID-19 vaccine study. The breakthrough, which brightens chances of the drug’s emergency approval before the year-end, send the Dow, the S&P and the Nasdaq to record heights.

The progress of a vaccine notwithstanding, the road to recovery remains long and uncertain amid concerns of soaring new coronavirus infections in many countries and the reimposition of lockdowns. The Fed’s cautious view of the American economy along with the confusion over the second stimulus package, post-election uncertainty and simmering U.S.-China tensions are also weighing on the markets.

Meanwhile, a few stocks have been holding up even as the coronavirus-induced mayhem knocked down businesses and industries. With the market expected to remain volatile over the near to medium term, one of the ways such potential plays could be identified is to look for signs of relative price strength.

The Relative Price Strength Approach

Whether a stock has the potential to offer considerable returns is determined primarily by its earnings and valuation ratios. Simultaneously, it is important to check whether its price performance exceeds its peers or the industry average.

Upon such comparison, if we find that a stock is unable to match up to wider sectoral growth despite having impressive earnings momentum or valuation multiples, it may be better to avoid it.

However, those outperforming their respective industries or benchmarks should be included in your portfolio, since they have a higher chance of securing significant returns. Picking a stock that outperforms its peers ensures that you have a winning option on your hands.

Then again, it is imperative that you determine whether or not an investment has relevant upside potential when considering stocks with significant relative price strength. Stocks delivering better than the S&P 500 over a period of 1 to 3 months at the least and having solid fundamentals indicate room for growth and are the best ways to go about this strategy.

Finally, it is important to find out whether analysts are optimistic about the upcoming earnings results of these companies. In order to do this, we have added positive estimate revisions for the current quarter’s (Q1) earnings to our screen. When a stock undergoes an upward revision, it leads to additional price gains.
