A number of beat-up momentum stocks run hot after their summer of discontent, with investors apparently setting their tolerance for risk a bit higher without any clear cut impetus. Favored momo names Chipotle (CMG +3.9%), Tesla Motors (TSLA +7.5%), Lululemon (LULU +3.9%), Deckers (DECK +6.2%), and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +5.7%) are all showing outsized gains.

    Quick question - with GMCR trading at 10x earnings and 7x cash flow, how can it still be considered a momentum stock? It was a momentum stock at $100 and even $60, but in the $20s, I'd classify it as more of a value stock.

    FFIV is missing from the list. Also up 6%. And I agree with Skyler: GMCR doesn't belong in the list.

    TPX probably belongs up there too.
