Certain stocks' top gainers

A top gainer is a share that has gained the most since its initial public offering (IPO). These shares have typically been companies that sold for a low price during their IPO to increase investor interest. Typically, once the company goes public, its founders and major early investors sell some of their stock. What these investors do with the money they make from the IPO is up to them. If they decide to buy more stock in their own company, it can boost that company's stock price.


How to identify a high-earning

In order to answer the question, we consider three parameters: price, volume and net change. We implement this idea through a simple machine learning system that predicts tomorrow's top performing stock in terms of the net change. We use historical order books data to learn the importance of those three factors and our learning system will pick up stocks with similar characteristics. Future performance is past performance.
