The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.

The Top 10 stocks on the watchlist reflect the strength and persistence highlighted this morning as futures forge a path higher. These stocks continue to make new highs, despite several contrary indicators that are beginning to fail. TICK cumulative, as an example, has been dropping lately, despite the strength in stocks like those discussed herein.

Watchlist – Top 10 Stocks

These 10 stocks are ranked by percent change for the week. As the market trades ever higher, we did take some profits into strength. Positions are smaller going into the morning bell. Links will take you to stockcharts.

The stock has been on a tear over the past 5 trading days, rising more than 30%. As we exceed targets, we would suggest taking more profits off the table again this morning. We’ll look for the next base to reassess progress and potential longevity.

Hovnanian Enterprises (HOV) was noted for its potential last week after seeing strength in its competitors Lennar (LEN) and MI Homes (MHO).

We sold some of our position into strength yesterday while keeping options open for a test of the 29.50 (+/-) resistance zone. We’re also buying intraday dips for day trades as price action rises back to resistance on the hopes that RSI has yet to reach overbought territory.

Canopy Growth (CGC) has been discussed every day this week.

Cannabis stocks are being bought up at discounted prices, as such the whole group is on our radar. We plan to day trade and swing these positions as a new trend develops. Intraday dips will most likely be bought. As such, watch for ABCD Patterns for your best entry and stops.

One trait most of these Top 10 stocks have in common is industry group strength, where most of the other stocks in the group (competitors) are moving together. Adding the indices and sectors moving in a bullish direction completes the recipe for success.

Healthcare stocks broke out on Wednesday, so stocks like UnitedHealth (UNH), Merck (MRK), Eli Lilly (LLY), Mylan (MYL), Smile Direct (SDC) and AbbVie (ABBV) have been discussed as trades recently. Look for these candidates to continue higher.
