Ceiling Bursters

These are stocks that have burst through the resistance of a high during the week (52-Week or 6-Month or 3-Month highs).

Stocks that appear in the 6-Month list are only there if they did not achieve a 52-Week High. Similarly, stocks in the 3-Month list only appear if they are not in the 52-Week and 6-Month tables.

Stocks included in these screens are sorted in descending order by the number of weeks it has been since they had achieved the previous old high, so the stocks at the top of the tables are those that had been basing the longest before they hit their new high.

Stocks in the Ceiling Bursters screens must satisfy the following requirements:
  • The stock has achieved a new period high
  • The price advance for the week must be at least 3%
Before you decide to buy a Ceiling Burster stock, make sure that it pierced through the resistance to its new high on heavy volume. As mentioned in the New Highs and Volume section, you want a stock that has a big buying commitment behind it.

If you find a Ceiling Burster that looks compelling, you can buy it right away or wait for a pullback. But be careful of chasing a stock that has extended itself far above the prior resistance level.
