Stocks outperforming the S&P 500 with low volatility

Stocks that outperform the market are more likely to increase in the future that stocks that are lagging and performing worse than the market.

Outperforming stocks carry also higher risk and we should be particularly careful when entering positions in one of these stocks. Many reasons could explain why a stock outperforms the market, it could be because the company released a better than expected earning numbers or because of good news or because a well-known technical pattern appeared in the stock prices. The main thing here is to buy outperforming stocks that have the lowest volatility and therefore carry the least risk.

The screen is aimed to return stocks that are outperforming the S&P 500 index and that have a low volatility and therefore risk.
The outperformance is calculated by taking the difference between the 30-bar stock return and the 30-bar return of the S&P 500 index.
The volatility is measured by calculating the 30-bar standard deviation (square root of the variance) of stock prices. It could also be measured using beta (Relation between the stock and the market returns).

The trading screen returns stocks that meet the following conditions:
- Stock price higher than $2
- Stock outperform the S&P 500 index
- Stock's volatility, as measured by the standard deviation, is lower than 0.5

A stock that outperforms the market and has lower volatility is more likely to increase in the future. This is at least what the backtests I have performed showed me (Simulations based on the historical EOD data of U.S. stocks).

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
