January Effect Stocks


This portfolio consists of 8 stocks to consider for the "January effect", ie buying stocks in late November and selling at the end of January (although some January-effect players sell earlier, after the fifth trading day in January).

This screen looked for stocks that have been beaten down due to tax selling that have the best chance of popping in January.

Considering this portfolio is looking for a short-term pop, there wasn't too much of a focus on fundamentals. It focused on the following:

Stocks with less than $1B market caps.
Stocks down between 10 and 60% YTD
Stocks with projected EPS growth > 25%
Stocks with 100% analyst BUY ratings.
