Former runners that have gone supernova in the past can do it again. That’s why I always tell students to STUDY THE PAST! A stock’s history can tell you whether it has the potential to spike. Learn from these two examples and one of my trades here.

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.

The past can also show you which indicators and catalysts can move stocks. And when sector momentum comes into play.

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…

That’s when I recognized a pattern I’ve traded since college. And I made $6,476 on my trade.*

I break down my entire trade and weekend profit strategy in this video…

Notice that I didn’t swing for a home run. And I didn’t hold and hope the stock would go back to its former highs. I had a specific trading plan and I followed my trading rules.

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…
