Prestige Brands Holdings



) as a weak on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Prestige Brands Holdings as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • PBH has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $15.3 million.
  • PBH has traded 144,343 shares today.
  • PBH is trading at 19.04 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • PBH is trading at a new low 8.03% below yesterday's close.

'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.

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Prestige Brands Holdings as a


. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 93.54% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 58.81% over the past year, outperforming the rise in the S&P 500 Index during the same period. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, PBH should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • PRESTIGE BRANDS HOLDINGS reported significant earnings per share improvement in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past year. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, PRESTIGE BRANDS HOLDINGS increased its bottom line by earning $1.48 versus $1.39 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.10 versus $1.48).
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Pharmaceuticals industry. The net income increased by 93.2% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $16.46 million to $31.80 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 71.86% to $47.07 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, PRESTIGE BRANDS HOLDINGS has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -0.25%.
