Each Monday, Stockhead recaps the stocks that are running hot with investors.

The analysis is based on the Relative Strength Index (RSI), 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.

North America-focused lithium stock Piedmont Lithium (ASX:PLL) has been running hot ever since it won a contract to supply Tesla last week.

In gold, Emu NL (ASX:EMU) started running hot after exiting Chile and picking up a new gold project in Australia.

Chile-focused gold explorer Tesoro Resources (ASX:TSO) also made the ‘running hot’ list. It is more than a 10-bagger after exploration success in the Latin American country.

Among non-resources sectors, Pure Foods Tasmania (ASX:PFT) was one stock to run hot.

When it entered the bourse through a reverse take-over of Bunji Corporation back in April, it told shareholders it would proactively seek partners and acquisition opportunities.

Last week it formally launched an incubation fund to help fellow Tasmanian premium food and beverage businesses just starting out in the space.

Mesoblast’s (ASX:MSB) FDA order to go back to the drawing board spooked investors enough to send its two-week RSI below 30.

Gold play Chase Mining (ASX:CML) has also been running cold after some not-so-great exploration results.

Dairy giant A2 Milk (ASX:A2M) has held up from a share price perspective for much of 2020. But it plunged last week after telling shareholders its daigou trade had begun to dry up.
