Market is Better But Not Great

 
The big-cap indexes are looking better and better, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq rocketing above their 200-day lines last week on the back of some bullish earnings reports. That said, not all is hunky dory—mid- and small-cap indexes continue to languish, the number of stocks hitting new 52-week lows is actually picking up and many stocks near their highs are still just biding their time.  

All in all, we’re still cautiously optimistic but we’re also sticking with our relatively neutral stance—it’s fine to take a shot at a few good set-ups, but honor your stops and keep some cash on the sideline until we see more leadership emerge, possibly on earnings during the next couple of weeks.

This week's Cabot Top Ten Trader has a range of stocks and sectors, including some recent earnings winners. Our Top Pick is a mega-cap airline that's helping lead that group's recent revival, thanks to huge earnings growth and a conservative management plan.


This is an excerpt from Cabot Top Ten Trader, which features the best trades to make every week.  Designed for experienced investors who want even more great growth stock ideas, this advisory recommends the best 10 stocks each month for short-term investment by aggressive growth investors.
