The Perfect Speculator by Brad Koteshwar is a relatively unknown classic in speculation. There is a fictional character, Boyd Hunt, who was a master trader and he made a lot of money from the market. In the book, he said he only consider stocks of the following criteria:

1. The stock must have made an all-time high, not just 52-week high.
2. It must have made at least 20% in 4 weeks since the last breakout to the all-time high.
3. The price cannot fall back to the previous breakout level.
4. The 52-week high must be at least twice of the 52-week low.

Here is my attempt to implement it in StockFetcher
