  • The 5 Best Small Cap Stocks 0 comments
    Oct 31, 2013 1:03 PM | about stocks: THS, WST, HAYN, CMTL, SXC

    When I say the BEST I'm speaking in current momentum terms. Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 600 Small Cap Index stocks for new high frequency, then eliminated those that did not have positive momentum for both the last week and month.

    Today's list includes Treehouse Foods (NYSE:THS), West Pharmaceutical Services (NYSE:WST), Haynes International (NASDAQ:HAYN), Comtech Telecommunications (NASDAQ:CMTL), and Suncoke Energy (NYSE:SXC):

    Treehouse Foods (THS)

    Barchart technical indicators:

     

    • 96% Barchart technical buy signals
    • Trend Spotter buy signal
    • Above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages
    • 18 new highs and up 11.48% in the last month
    • Relative Strength Index 71.17%
    • Barchart computes a technical support level at 74.72
    • Recently traded at 74.50 with a 50 day moving average of 69.06


    Yes I note that the technical support level is above the current price but do not have an explanation for that.
