Still Choppy, but Many Stocks are Working

 

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.

The major indexes’ latest foray into new high ground has again been beaten back, as stocks slid today back into their multi-month trading ranges.

It’s clear that the major trend of the market remains sideways, which is a good reason to remain somewhat cautious. But it’s also clear that many stocks are still working well—nobody is printing money, but we’re seeing plenty of stocks and sectors persist higher and, so far, take any selling waves in stride. You should still hold onto some cash and be selective when doing new buying, but if you see a good set-up, go ahead and take it.

This week’s Top Ten is a bit less heavy on growth stocks, though there are still a few hot stocks to read about. Our Top Pick is anything but a growth stock, but looks like an interesting special situation. Earnings should explode in the next few quarters.

What Memorial Day Means to Me

By Timothy Lutts on May 25, 2015

For most Americans, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer. Millions of families will cook out on the grill, drink beer and watch the Indianapolis 500.
