The indexes are finally in synch and in up trends. The GMI is +6 and both the GMI-L and GMI-S are strong. There were 376 new highs in my universe of 4,000 stocks on Wednesday and 38% of stocks are now in a short term up trend. 66% of the Nasdaq 100 stocks closed Wednesday above their 30 day averages. Many stocks are breaking out of bases on huge volume increases. Wednesday was the second day (U-2) of the new QQQQ short term up trend. 36% of stocks are within 5% of their yearly highs. Among the stocks that appear to have broken out of bases on high volume this week are: AZR, WCN, DEO, DXCM, VTIV (I own this), DXPE, ITW, AVTR, RIMM, STN, MHP, NTES, VNO, DPZ, MAN, and XNPT. CMG, a recent spin off of MCD, also looks strong (I own it, based on my son’s opinion that Chipotle’s food is great, and the recent turnaround in earnings.) Of course, the fundamentals of all of these stocks need to be researched to see if they are as good as the technicals……………..
