Good Action, but Waiting for Growth Stocks

Last week made it five weeks up in a row for the major indexes, which keeps the intermediate-term trend solidly up. Moreover, the broad market is now clearly healthy, with many stocks and sectors showing excellent accumulation. All of that is why we’re nudging up our Market Monitor another notch; you should probably be more invested than not, given the evidence.  

However, we’re going to stay in the upper reaches of neutral until we see growth stocks get going—many of them are set-up nicely, but until they actually break out (and until the market’s longer-term trend turns up, which it has yet to do), it’s best to keep some powder dry.

This week’s list has a strong flavor of industrial and cyclical stocks, though many have excellent earnings estimates so they aren’t pure turnarounds. Our Top Pick has surged higher after a big correction, and is likely to post humongous earnings and cash flow growth in the quarters ahead.

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.
