I get the weekly Barron's newspaper and
like to see who made their weekly 
Winners and Losers list.

I was about to throw out the old issues 
but I decided to see how the winners fared
one and two months later- starting the first
week in January.
(1/4/2021 issue pg. M9, NYSE and NASDAQ, Biggest % Movers)
Did they keep on rising or were they flash in the pans?

Some observations:

- The 2 month hold did quite a bit better
than the 1 month hold.

- Average wise, both did substantially better than the QQQ.

% Returns
2 Month	 1 month     2 Month- BETTER OR WORSE THAN 1 Month?
	
126.9	-15.6	CAN	BETTER	
121.1	 46.6	WBAI	BETTER	
 56.2	 47.6	GCI	BETTER	
 35.7	 20.2	LXU	BETTER	
 27.4	 22.7	IPI	BETTER	
 21.6	  9.0	SBTX	BETTER	
 15.8	 11.9	CNFR	BETTER	
  1.5	  0.3	RLH	BETTER	
 -3.4	-12.3	EBON	BETTER	
 -9.2	-14.8	GATO	BETTER	
 41.7	 69.6	CGA	WORSE	
 19.9	 54.4	EYPT	WORSE	
  9.4 	 17.8	STRR	WORSE	
 -7.8	 32.4	IMMR	WORSE	
-40.8	-13.1	CDAK	WORSE	
 27.7 	 18.4 	AVERAGE		
				
1.56	6.8	QQQ

Maybe this once a month method beats out
hours and hours looking at screens and
running Excel spreadsheets and reading
financial reports. Maybe the winners
just keep on winning...	

NOTE: STRR is the new name change for DRAD
in case someone looks it up.
