The last time I wrote a momentum stock article was back in mid July when the market was making new record highs. Since then we have endured a trade war scare and alarms about inverted yield curves send stocks tumbling lower once again.

I think today’s version of the article is actually much more meaningful. That’s because momentum is a bit more scarce. So those companies displaying this attractive attribute now have something special going on that will likely lead to more upside in the future.

HCP, Inc. (HCP - Get Rating) Inc. (HCP) certainly stands out as the right kind of stock for the times. This 17 billion market cap healthcare REIT has all the right ingredients.

REIT = attractive income as HCP, Inc. (HCP - Get Rating) pays 4.3% yield.

17 billion market cap = large cap = safe…as does the 0.19 beta

Healthcare industry = defensive industry that holds up better than most during Flight to Quality sell offs.

But the good ingredients don’t end there. See what else I put into this research project to narrow down to these 14 momentum stocks.

POWR Rating of A (Strong Buy)

Trade Grade of A

Industry Rank of A

Peer Grade of A

No shocker that I started with POWR Rating of A given how this system focuses on stocks displaying the best momentum at this time. However, the POWR Rating is a summation of 4 separate ratings. Each of them point to greater timeliness.

Having a top Industry Rank is important as so much of a stocks performance is tied up in the industry being in or out of favor. So in this case we have the most in favor groups. And beyond that we want a stock that is one of the best performing in their group which comes through from a Peer Grade of A.

The Trade Grade of A is how well the stocks price performance compares to all stocks. So at this stage we are already on the track of a stock loaded with attractive momentum qualities. Gladly our search is not done yet.

Next I wanted the stock to currently be above all the key moving average levels including 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 day. Meaning it has both short and long term momentum in its corner.

Finally I wanted to make sure shares were outperformers year to date and over the last 12 months. That was easy to find by simply making sure they each had gained at least 20% over each time period.

This process narrowed things down to just 14 with attractive momentum qualities from every angle. Enjoy the full list below. Just click on the tickers to continue your research on each stock.
