TREND TEMPLATE CRITERIA by the Legend @markminervini

stock must meet all eight criteria to be deemed in a confirmed stage 2 uptrend.

1. Stock price is above both the 150-day (30-week) and the 200-day (40week) moving average price lines.

2. The 150-day moving average is above the 200-day moving average

3. The 200-day moving average line is trending up for at least 1-month (preferably 4 to 5 months or longer).

4. The 50-day (10-week moving average) is above both the 150-day and the 200-day moving averages.
5. The current stock price is at least 25 percent above its 52-week low. (Many of the best selections will be 100 percent, 300 percent, or more above their 52-week low before they emerge from a healthy consolidation period and mount a large-scale advance).
6. The current stock price is within at least 25 percent of its 52-week high
(the closer to a new high the better).
7. The relative strength (RS) ranking (as reported in Investor's Business
Daily) is no less than 70, but preferably in the 90s, which will generally be the case with the better selections.
8. Current price is trading above the 50 day moving average as the stock is coming out of a base.

I like this heuristic, and have a few which are similar in intent to it:

Hiring efficiency:

How long does it take, measured from initial expression of interest through offer of employment signed, for a typical candidate cold inbounding to the company?

What is the *theoretical minimum* for *any* candidate?

How long does it take, as a developer newly hired at the company:

* To get a fully credentialed machine issued to you
* To get a fully functional development environment on that machine which could push code to production immediately
* To solo ship one material quanta of work

How long does it take, from first idea floated to "It's on the Internet", to create a piece of marketing collateral.

(For bonus points: break down by ambitiousness / form factor.)

How many people have to say yes to do something which is clearly worth doing which costs $5,000 / $15,000 / $250,000 and has never been done before.
