Higher Highs


A New Normal You'll Settle For

We've all seen it – stocks go up, stocks go down. But when any of them start climbing well above their recent trading ranges, even the most veteran investor will sit up and take notice. That's because sometimes that move up isn't a head fake, but rather a fundamental indication of buying pressure that can lead to a stable – and higher – price level for the stock. This motif tries to identify and capture these price increases in a systematic way, regardless if they are caused by news, rumor, or technical patterns. To begin, a stock screen singles out stocks that have recently registered a new intraday high when compared to the prior quarter, while excluding stocks with unusual overnight price movements and volatility. The motif is rebalanced every week, and stocks that have begun showing negative weekly price action are removed. But we don't force the issue: If there aren't enough eligible stocks (minimum of five based on a maximum allowable allocation of 20% per stock during a given period, the portion of the motif is allocated to a short-term Treasury bill exchange-traded fund – and can be as high as 100% in certain bear trending market conditions.
