How has the Hunting (LON:HTG) share price performed?

In terms of relative price strength the stock has performed well against the market over the past year:

  • 1 Month: 13.4%

  • 6 Months: 127.6%

  • 12 Months: 31.6%

This is important because relative strength is a useful tool in the armoury of technical traders and investors. It’s an instant measure of how a stock has performed in comparison with a benchmark.

And while there are no certainties about which way a stock will move next, research shows that price trends like this can persist.

Studies by leading experts on momentum show that stocks with the strongest price strength can sometimes keep up the pace for anywhere up to one year, as investors increasingly buy into them.

What does this mean for potential investors?

Hunting is currently among the stocks with the strongest six-month and one-year relative price strength in the market. But momentum on its own is no guarantee of future returns.

To get a better idea about whether this momentum will continue, it's worth doing some investigation yourself. Indeed, we've identified some areas of concern with Hunting that you can find out about here.
