) as a weak on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Sino-Global Shipping America as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • SINO has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $10.0 million.
  • SINO has traded 822,511 shares today.
  • SINO is trading at 50.77 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.

'Weak on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as material stock news, analyst downgrades, insider selling, selling from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and traders are piling out of a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize (or avoid losses by trimming weak positions). In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success.

Despite the past decline, the stock is still selling for more than most others in its industry.

  • Net operating cash flow has increased to -$0.29 million or 48.18% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite an increase in cash flow, SINO-GLOBAL SHIPPING AMERICA's average is still marginally south of the industry average growth rate of 53.33%.
