What’s a Former Runner?
A former runner is exactly what it sounds like — a stock that’s run before. It could have been last year, last month, or last week.
These stocks have the potential to go supernova again, so you have to dig in to understand why the stock spiked. What was the catalyst? How much volume did it trade? How big was the spike, and how long did it last?
Remember, history doesn’t repeat, but it often rhymes…
Why Studying the Past Is Imperative for Future Success
Before you take any trade — ALWAYS look at a stock’s history.
Stocks have personalities. It’s like how athletes have muscle memory. Stocks have a memory too. That’s because traders often remember former big runners. They know what’s possible with a stock. And with enough momentum, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Let’s dig into some recent examples so you can see what I mean…
A $6,476 Reason to Watch Former Runners
My recent Clean Vision Corporation (OTCPK: CLNV) trade is a great example of how I trade a former runner spiking on news.
First, look at the two-year chart…
You can see the stock had a huge multi-day run in April 2020. It went from 5–45 cents in a few days.
Then in January 2021, the stock spiked again. And before my recent trade, it ran from about 2–7 cents in four days. It was back to trading around 3 cents when the company released news on a Friday afternoon…

Here’s another example of a former runner going full supernova…
Fernhill Corporation (OTCPK: FERN)
FERN had a small spike in May. Then it had a big multi-day run in July after the company announced it will acquire a crypto mining platform.
Crypto was a hot sector at the time. Bitcoin (BTC) bounced from $30,000 to $40,000 that month.
Then in September, FERN spiked again. The company appointed a new executive vice president and provided an acquisition update on September 9. Then on September 29, it launched a website for its crypto mining platform. The stock hit new multi-year highs.
Check out FERN’s one-year chart. It’s beautiful…
