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.

Essentially, it may continue this action. However, a drop below 53.98 will call for a reassessment of the situation.

    • I overheard a discussion between two friends and one was telling the other that Bitcoin is a scam and that a lot of people preached about the halving and how people could cashout from it. The other friend was trying to convince him to continue holding his asset but he refused and replied that nothing would stop him from selling the coins he's holding.  When I heard that man mentioned cashing out from the halving, I understood that he might know about Bitcoin but he's not properly enlightened concerning it. A lot of expectations were cut short after the halving event cause most people expected Bitcoin to set a new height of $80k but then it didn't even get close to the previous all time high and have reduced below $60k currently.  I think people shouldn't get discourage by that, though I didn't experience other halvings cause I had zero knowledge about Bitcoin then but i think something similar have occurred before in one of the previous halving where Bitcoin price didn't go up as expected but later traced back and went up after some period, a lot of people might begin to panic and sell their coins but I still see this an opportunity to buy more Bitcoin and for those who are not opportuned to do so, holding is the best option, please correct me if you think am wrong
