The Growth Stock Report

Market Bias

Seller’s Edge

The Growth Stock Landscape

Easy selling across the broader market these past few weeks is no surprise to anyone.

We’re on alert for a turnaround of sorts as the S&P 500 touches its critical 40-week moving average.

Bottom Line: Haul in your profits if you’ve made money selling short.  If your strategy merits higher risk, wait for a clear indication of a rebound before nibbling on Long positions. This market is still full of attractive stocks.

It would be just like the market to stage a massive sell off in this zone, only to make a sharp u-turn on high volume as funds buy on perceived value. Watch and wait.

Market Leaders Baidu (BIDU),, (AMZN) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) have pulled back to near their 40-day averages like the major indexes. A resurgence of the bull may give way to new Leadership. We’ll watch how these guys hold the averages for further indication of overall market direction.   

No Setups made the list this week. And only one New High in FOSL.

Other Individual names making the grade for stellar growth include.

  • Polycom (PLCM)
  • Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX)
  • Illumina (ILMN)
  • Fortinet (FTNT)
  • Cypress Semi (CY),
  • Golar LNG (GLNG)
  • Arcos Dorados Holdings (ARCO)
  • Virnetx Holding (VHC)

Aggressive money may also want to take a closer look at the commodity Silver as it plays out a correction. This can be done with  iShares Silver Trust’s (SLV) as well as a hoist of other funds.  

Stay tuned,
