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 investors.With Greece on the brink of defaulting on some loans and/or exiting the eurozone, the uncertainly of what’s to come caused sellers to drive the indexes and most stocks down sharply today. The straight-down action of the past few days, which came on the heels of some encouraging gains, is a yellow flag, as are the downmoves of many stocks. As we’ve been writing, you should honor your stops (many stocks tripped their stops today) and be holding at least some cash on the sideline.
That said, while we’re knocking our Market Monitor down a notch today, the bigger picture hasn’t changed—the major indexes are still within their multi-month ranges, and the best stocks are pulling back normally, so we don’t advise selling wholesale.
This week’s list has many strong stocks that have held up well during the recent selloff. Our Top Pick just exploded out of a base following a big court ruling last week.
