The Evidence Continues to Improve

The market continues to face many headwinds, the largest of which is the fact that the major indexes and the vast majority of individual stocks remain in longer-term downtrends. However, let’s give the market credit where it’s due—after a panic selloff on January 20, the major indexes chopped around, retested those lows during the following three weeks, and now, have nearly risen to their highest levels since early January.  

By our measures, the intermediate-term trend is starting to turn up, so after many weeks in a defensive stance, it’s OK to loosen the purse strings and put some cash to work—though we do advise going slow on the buy side and continuing to hold a good-sized cash position. Our Market Monitor will move up a couple of notches into neutral territory.

This week’s list is still a bit light on true growth stocks, but there are other interesting ideas to consider. Our Top Pick is a stock we’ve recommended before that’s now showing excellent relative strength.

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.
