Hot Money Monday: Some unusual names post high RSIs while BNPL turns to ice

Each week, Stockhead recaps ASX stocks that are “running hot” as deduced by the Relative Strength Index (RSI).
The RSI is a technical gauge which measures how trading momentum is affecting the price action.
A reading of 70 is seen as the level at which a company may have been overbought. If a stock has a reading of 30 or below, it could be undervalued.

While there’s usually a pretty good reason if a given stock is running hot (or cold), investors are also on the lookout for opportunities where the price action has separated from fundamentals.
Here’s a summary of the stocks that were running hot for the two weeks ended Friday, December 17:
Papua New Guinea-based Steamships Trading Company (ASX:SST) popped up on this week’s list, after posting a couple of solid daily gains last week.
Founded over 100 years ago and headquartered in Port Moresby, the diversified company runs three operational divisions — logistics, property & hotels, and commercial.
Data from Commsec showed SST doesn’t trade every day, which may have upwardly impacted its 14-day RSI print over the past fortnight. The company last made an ASX announcement on October 11.
Another thinly traded stock — the Alternative Investment Trust (ASX:AIQ) — also ran hot after jumping by ~18% last Monday.
The platform — operated by Warana Capital — maintains exposure to various investment funds and debt/equity co-investment structures.
Recently-listed holiday accommodation manager Alloggio Group (ASX:ALO) rounded out the top 3 on this week’s list, posting four straight winning sessions last week to climb back to 19.5c — just shy of its 20c November listing price after the stock fell on debut.

After a brutal week for the sector, it perhaps wasn’t surprising to see a number of ASX BNPL stocks post an RSI of 30 or below over the past fortnight.
Zip Co (ASX:Z1P), the second largest competitor, has fallen by ~35% since the start of November and registered a 14-day RSI of 30.
Industry leader Afterpay (ASX:APT) has also fallen by more than 30% in that time and registered an RSI of 25, while sector-adjacent stock Zebit (ASX:ZBT), which provides BNPL services to users of its US-based online shopping marketplace, fell to new all-time lows beneath 30c with a 14-day RSI of 27.
