Trade-Ideas LLC identified

Triple-S Management

(

GTS

) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Triple-S Management as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • GTS has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $5.8 million.
  • GTS has traded 69,009 shares today.
  • GTS is trading at 5.21 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.
  • GTS is trading at a new high 3.02% above yesterday's close.

'Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into 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. 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.

Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Triple-S Management as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, compelling growth in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and good cash flow from operations. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • Powered by its strong earnings growth of 124.00% and other important driving factors, this stock has surged by 35.55% 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, GTS should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Health Care Providers & Services industry. The net income increased by 113.3% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $6.96 million to $14.84 million.
  • GTS's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.09 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 80.61% to $38.78 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, TRIPLE-S MANAGEMENT CORP has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 2.58%.
