Below is the list of stocks that had the most bullish momentum scores on StockTwits over the past year. The longer term (6 months to 1 year) bullish lists are a great place to start if you’re building a long term portfolio. These lists show the stocks where large numbers of market participants have posted positive messages on StockTwits (or Twitter). As a result, they are widely held and favored.
Rather than simply buying the list at the first of the year an investor should watch for consolidation in price and then resumption of momentum on the StockTwits (or Twitter) stream. Gaps in the strength scores on the following list show likely consolidation periods for the stocks. 7 day momentum on the detail chart can help you time your purchases by watching for positive divergences from price.
Another way to find long term candidates is by watching the longer term momentum lists. The stocks in the momentum lists generally have shorter consolidation periods and slowly but surely continue to move up.
