The following is a list of high growth stocks reaching an inflection point, based on moving average trends. For this article, we define an inflection point as the convergence between the 50-day and 200-day moving averages.

When these two moving averages cross, it often represents a shift in investor sentiment. If the 50-day MA moves above the 200-day MA (bullish), it's called a "Golden Cross" signal. If, on the other hand, the 50-day MA crosses below the 200-day MA (bearish), it's called the "Death Cross".

To compile this list, we started with a universe of stocks that have seen the SMA50 move above the SMA200 (i.e. bullish signal). We then narrowed down the list by only focusing on high growth stocks, defined by EPS growth projections above 20% over the next 5 years.

Growth projections sourced from Finviz. Full details below.
