I wrote this little script up last week to find some good performers-
wanted to see if being on a speeding train was worth the excitement
(before everyone jumped off...).
It was!

volume is above 1000000
price is above 10
the 10 day slope of ma(200) is above .15
the 50 day slope of ma(200) is above .15
the 10 day slope of ma(100) is above .15
the 50 day slope of ma(100) is above .15
the 10 day slope of ma(50) is above .15
the 50 day slope of ma(50) is above .15

The following 13 popped out- I already had a few, wish
I had all of them...
All of them beat the averages which I included
for reference (and were not in the top 13!!!)

(Might lower the volume requirement to see what happens.
Will post, if anyone is interested.)

I will watch earnings report dates on these-
as this was a good article http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=26633007
on when to buy and sell top performing stocks.
(Buy 5 days before earnings announcement and sell the day before)
That's probably why fslr declined.
