The RS Rating, ranging from 1 (worst) to 99 (best), measures a stock’s price performance over the last 12 months. The best stocks tend to have an 80 or better RS Rating as they launch a new climb.

Relative Strength Line Vs. RS Rating

Also keep an eye on the relative strength line, which compares a stock’s price performance to that of the S&P 500. An upward trending RS line tells you the stock is outperforming the general market. And it’s a bullish sign when the line is in or near new high ground at the time of a breakout.
