My 5 NASDAQ 100 Picks

|Includes:AAPL, Amgen Inc. (AMGN), CELG, CTRX, FFIV

Today I wanted to find the 5 NASDAQ 100 stocks with the best technical buy signals and most consistent charts. I used Barchart to first sort the Index for the best technical buy signals, then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. I skipped several stocks with great technical buy signals but very choppy charts.

Today's list includes Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG), Catamaran (NASDAQ:CTRX), F5 Networks (NASDAQ:FFIV):
