Tenuous, but Still Positive

Last week didn’t see much net change in the major indexes, but volatility has surged, with big swings up and down based on the news of the day. Overall, not much has changed—some stocks and sectors are acting well, but many others are chopping around and some (like MLPs) are literally crashing.  

By our measures, the market’s trends are still pointed up, but it’s close. All in all, we’re sticking with a relatively neutral stance, meaning we’re holding our top performers, but also holding some cash and being very selective on the buy side. And if something breaks down or trips its stop, it should be jettisoned quickly.

This week’s list continues with the bigger-cap, growth-oriented theme that’s been present for the past few weeks. Our Top Pick just gapped up to new highs after three months of rest following a great earnings report.

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.
