KUALA LUMPUR (March 25): theedgemarkets.com has highlighted five stocks with momentum at Bursa Malaysia’s noon market break today. All stocks displayed negative momentum.
The stocks with negative momentum were:
Matang Bhd — up two sen at 11 sen
Symphony Life Bhd — up 6.5 sen at 78.5 sen
Berjaya Corp Bhd — up 3.5 sen at 32.5 sen
Berjaya Land Bhd — up 1.5 sen at 24 sen
Pesona Metro Holdings Bhd — down 2.5 sen at 27 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.
