  • NASDAQ 100 Quarterly Winners 0 comments
    Aug 29, 2013 12:01 PM | about stocks: FB, BIDU, NFLX, PCLN, VIAB

    We are nearing the Labor Day Holiday so I decided to do something a little different. Today I used Barchart to sort the NASDAQ 100 Index to find the stocks that gained the most in the last 3 months. Those stock that in hindsight, I wish I had bought 3 months ago. There seems to be a theme here and I bet you can see what it is.

    The list includes Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) up 77.82%, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) up 44.29%, Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) up 33.99%, Priceline.com (NASDAQ:PCLN) up 19.21% and Viacom Class B (NASDAQ:VIAB):
