Reading Waves - Issue #1

This is Minjie Shi and here is the first edition of Reading Waves - your weekly guide to find stocks that have hit 52-week high.

This newsletter is inspired by Brian McCullough from a podcast called TechMeme Ride Home. Brian mentioned in the end of an episode that he was having issue finding a place to easily screen the stocks that have been hitting the 52-week high. At that time, I thought I might be able to create something to solve this issue. Hence, after playing with different tools and coding for a bit for a while, I have finally cracked the code and managed to create this newsletter to share with the world regarding such information.

The stocks I have done the comparison for the 52-week high information is mainly coming from the Technology stocks from NASDAQ. Here is the link to all the stocks I have been tracking for this newsletter. If you would like to add some additional stocks, please let me know via

To encourage more people to read about the information, I would make the first 4 issues completely free for anyone to view. After that, for all the paid subscribers, you will get the issues weekly; for all the free users, you will get the issue monthly.

Stay awesome! 😄
