Follow up on High Relative Strength Stocks

In my last article to mentioned that investors should look at the stocks that have "held up" the best or have performed the best relative to the market and to their sector peer group. These are the stocks that will usually drop the least in a down market and turn around the fastest in an up market. This is something that investors can research during times when the market is down and create a list of stocks that they can consider buying when the market turns around.

I pointed out two examples of this type of stock from our renewable energy list: Cree Research (CREE) and Veeco Instruments (VECO), both are stock plays on the coming LED lighting transition.

Below is a table comparing these stocks I mentioned that showed significantly better relative strength than the market and the other stocks in their peer group.

Stock Symbols Curr Value %Change YTD

CREE 69.83 23.88
VECO 38.46 16.4
S&P 500 1115.23 0.0117
Dow Jones 10404.77 -0.22
NASDAQ 2305.88 1.62

This is a clear example of stocks that are performing better than the averages and also better than the stocks in their peer group, most of which as down well into the double digits.

This is no guarantee, but historically these are the type of strong stocks that, when the market turns they will turn positive faster than their peer group and possibly even in advance of the market turning positive
