  • My 5 NASDAQ 100 Picks 0 comments
    Aug 27, 2014 12:16 PM | about stocks: AMGN, AAPL, 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):
