Trade-Ideas LLC identified Yelp ( YELP) as a strong on high relative volume candidate. In addition to specific proprietary factors, Trade-Ideas identified Yelp as such a stock due to the following factors:

  • YELP has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $435.0 million.
  • YELP has traded 2.9 million shares today.
  • YELP is trading at 15.61 times the normal volume for the stock at this time of day.

'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.
