Following Along

Our job as investors isn’t to forecast where the market will be in two or three months, but to follow the current evidence and stay on the right side of the market’s trends. The intermediate-term trend turned positive last week for the first time in more than two months, so it’s time to take a couple of steps back into the market’s waters by purchasing some strong stocks with big potential.

That said, it’s best to go slow, partly because the longer-term trend remains down, and partly because many stocks are still repairing the severe damage they suffered in recent months. Our Market Monitor remains in neutral territory, and we’ll be looking for more bullish action from leading stocks to tell us to shift to a more aggressive stance.

This week’s Top Ten has a bit more of a growth flavor, which we like to see, with many stocks expected to grow earnings nicely. Our Top Pick is a full-service restaurant operation that should see its bottom line accelerate this year. Even better, the stock just exploded out of a multi-month base.

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.
