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

  • CRTO has an average dollar-volume (as measured by average daily share volume multiplied by share price) of $28.5 million.
  • CRTO has traded 297,892 shares today.

'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.
