Screening for Institutional Buying

Recommended Posts

I saw this article sometime ago (published June 2017) and thought to keep it to check on the progress of the recommendations. They came from a set of screener parameters designed to identify institutional buying of company stock.

Below are the charts to date of the companies recommended by the screener 1 year ago (June 2017). See link for screener specifics.

so the parameters are

• Current Price greater than Price from 1 Week Ago
• Price from 1 Week Ago greater than Price from 2 Weeks Ago
• Price from 2 Week Ago greater than Price from 3 Weeks Ago

• Weekly Volume greater than Weekly Volume from 1 Week Ago
• Weekly Volume from 1 Wk Ago greater than Weekly Volume from 2 Wks Ago
• Weekly Volume from 2 Wks Ago greater than Weekly Volume from 3 Wks Ago

• Zacks Rank less than or equal to 3
• Price greater than or equal to $5
• Average 20-day Volume greater than or equal to 100,000 shares

Is there an easy method to look at these things? How do you do it? Charts seem to show varying degrees of success. Do you think the method works?

Hi @247trader,  the results are very good, 4 of the 5 had 6 months of gains from the June start date and 2 of those 4 the gains continue to date while the other 1 of the 5 had a ballistic 1 month gain before collapsing.

The top 6 on the screener list can be gleaned from a chart, the Zack's Rank is not so important (from article), don't include low priced stock (7) and the last one can be done roughly as it's just there to ensure sufficient liquidity to be able to get in and out.

I thought it looked relatively simple and performed very well over the sample of 5 picked stocks. Coupled with a moving average trailing stop all 5 would have made good gains.

    • It's common knowledge that copy trading can yield lucrative returns with the right approach, and Bitget exchange has streamlined the process by offering access to top-tier traders to emulate.
    • The introduction of Altered State Machine (ASM) marks a significant development in the NFT space, introducing novel applications through AI integration. Collaborations with industry leaders like FIFA and Non Fungible Labs highlight the project's potential for success, especially with the forthcoming listing of $ASTO on Bitget exchange.
    • With how fast crypto is evolving, IQ wants to help make sense of it all for people. It's like a crypto Wikipedia with guides and resources explaining everything - NFTs, DeFi, blockchain basics, you name it. But with all the misinformation out there and AI like ChatGPT generating content, how useful are human-run knowledge platforms like IQ for getting reliable crypto info?  Here are some key things about IQ: - There's an IQ token that lets users contribute and vote on content. It's available on Bitget, binance and some dex..You can also stake the token for rewards. - IQ uses Polygon to record edits on the blockchain. This verifies the accuracy of information.  - AI is used in some areas like summarizing articles to simplify learnings. - An ecosystem of Web3 apps is in development, like IQ Code to audit smart contracts.  So what do you think about this community-run model with tokenized incentives? Does IQ strike the right balance between AI automation and human know-how? How important are services like this for cutting through the noise as AI content creation keeps advancing? I'd love to hear thoughts on this folks..
