system. He named his selection strategy
CANSLIM, an acronym of the seven required factors. He first described
CANSLIM in his best-selling book: ďHow

requiring increased daily volume on the purchase date and large
earnings growth combined. There are also other requirements not
usually identified with momentum investing.
