Wk31: Stocks to Watch

A strong list of bullish names in last week’s watchlist helped drive the market higher, although at a mixed rate with some stocks holding their gains, others giving them back after breaking out. We continue with a bullish bias and will be looking at these names in the week ahead. AN, AWH, CMG, FIS, MGG, MV, SLAB, STEC, TEF, VECO, BMI & MSCC ended the week lower and GHDX is forming a good entry point here. We are also adding…
