Tutorial Exercise #1:

 

Compute the Rates of Change (basis the 20-day lag), as of the close, October 21, 2005 for all US stocks with at least one year history, and last trading above $5/share.  Rank these from strongest to weakest and list the top 15, along with their percent rate of change per year (basis 20 days).  Check your answers against price charts for visual reasonableness.
