The stocks listed below all have high momentum. The chart shows their 5-day, 1- month, and 1-year change as a percentage. High momentum obviously means the company is favorable, but also leaves a lot of room for swing trading (riding the wave), if you are that kind of trader. Either way you look at it, momentum or fundamentals, these stocks are on the rise and have been for a while, despite the DJIA: 5-day +1.74%, 1-month -1.71%, 1-year +0.88%. Here are stocks that have beat the market across the board:
OPNET Technologies, Inc.
Global Industries, Ltd.
NetLogic Microsystems, Inc.
The Medicines Company
