Relative Averages Explained:

Relative Strength (not to be confused with the RSI indicator) is a measure of price trend that indicates how a stock is performing relative to other stocks in its industry.  We can also measure the relative performance of each component of any index. Relative strength is typically a numerical measurement expressed as a percentage. For example, if a stock has a relative strength of 75 it has outperformed 75% of the stocks over a specified period.

Investor’s Business Daily publish their Relative Price Strength Rating that appears for each stock is calculated by comparing its price change over the past 12 months to that of all other stocks in the tables. Results are rated on a scale from 1 to 99, with 99 being best.
