  • 5 Great Mid Caps 1 comment
    Aug 22, 2014 1:32 PM | about stocks: TRN, FL, EXP, WWAV, WRI

    Today I wanted to find the 5 Mid Cap stocks that I thought had the best technical indicators and charts. I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index stocks first for the best technical buy signals and next used to Flipchart feature to find the chart with the most consistent price momentum.

    Today's list includes Trinity Industries (NYSE:TRN), Footlocker (NYSE:FL), Eagle Materials (NYSE:EXP), The Whitewave Foods Co (NYSE:WWAV) and Weingarten Realty Investors (NYSE:WRI):
