Pull Back Strategy
Biggest stock gainers is a nice list to keep track, because many stocks made it through to the list by having positive news such as earnings. When companies report strong earnings, often the stock market response positively by gaping up and reach new highs unless the news is already price in.
Sometimes, these stocks gap up and then pull back because of short term traders who wants to sell to realize a profit. Once they pull back, the stocks may rise again in the next few days or a few weeks and may even go higher than the previous high.
That's why it is important to keep track of these stocks, because you may want to buy some of these strong stocks on a temporary pull back. Amazon is a stock that works pretty well on this strategy. I noticed it often gap up and reach new highs when it reports strong earnings, and then stock would pull back in the next few days, only to reach new highs soon after.
This strategy works for long term investor as well, because let's say if you want to buy Amazon for the long term instead of short term, but unsure at what price to buy the stock for. You may consider buying the stock when it pulls back. For the past five years, it seems every time Amazon's stock pulls back, it bounce back right away.
However, Amazon's stock is now at its all time high with a market cap of 1.61 trillion, you may want to proceed with caution if you still want to buy its stock.
