Strongest Stocks on StockTwits Diverges from Market

By | March 6, 2015

The strongest stocks on StockTwits during the month of January lagged the market during February. The under performance was mostly a result of Alcoa (AA) down nearly 13% and Exxon Mobile (XOM) down over 6%. XOM was in a clear downtrend when it made the list. This is yet another example of why we tell you to use the bullish lists as a starting point and not an automatic buy list.

On the first Friday of every month we post the stocks that had the most support on the StockTwits stream over the past month. The top 10 stocks in the list will be tracked over the next month. Note: because both Google stocks (GOOGL and GOOG) are in the top 10 we’ll use only GOOGL then select the eleventh stock in the list (Best Buy – BBY) as a replacement for GOOG.
