Only 3 Mid Cap Stocks

|Includes:COO, Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (SWKS), UAA

Ok before you all start complaining that I always give you at least 5 stock picks let me just say that Mid Caps are having a hard time so today there will only be 3. They are Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS), Under Armour (NYSE:UA) and Cooper Companies (NYSE:COO).

Before we get into those 3 stocks let's look at the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index as if it were a stock so you can see why I'm not keen on the Mid Caps this week. First the chart, then the technical indicators:

Barchart technical indicators:

 

  • 32% technical sell signals
  • Trend Spotter sell signal
  • Below its 20 and 50 day moving averages
  • 4.95% below its 1 year high
  • Relative Strength Index 46.00%
  • Barchart computes a technical support level at 1,173.00
  • Recently traded at 1199.80 which is below its 50 day moving average of 1212.67


As you can see this is not positive momentum. Let's look at what I consider the best 3 out of 400:
