KUALA LUMPUR (June 14): theedgemarkets.com highlighted five stocks with momentum at Bursa Malaysia's afternoon market close today. Three stocks showed positive momentum while two had negative momentum.
Stocks that showed positive momentum were :
Hwa Tai Industries Bhd - down 1.5 sen at 55.5 sen
Solution Engineering Holdings Bhd - down 0.5 sen at 45.5 sen
SLP Resources Bhd - unchanged at RM2.80
Stocks with negative momentum were :
Crest Builder Holdings Bhd - up one sen at 98.5 sen
Astral Supreme Bhd - up 0.5 sen at 14.5 sen
The list of stocks with momentum is generated using a proprietary mathematical algorithm highlighting stocks with a build-up in trading volume and price. The algorithm differentiates between stocks that exhibit positive (+ve) momentum and negative (-ve) momentum.
This list is not a buy or sell recommendation. It merely tells you which stocks are seeing higher than normal volume and price movements. The share price may move up or down from this point. But the "+ve" (suggesting a rising price trend on volume) and "-ve" (suggesting a falling price trend on volume) indicators should give readers a better idea of what the market is buying and when to sell. Note also that momentum generally only persists for a short period of time.
However, each stock has an accompanying fundamental score and valuation score to help readers evaluate the attractiveness of the stocks, if they want to ride the momentum.
