The 5 Best Growth Stocks

|Includes: AGN, MMS, MNST, Nutrisystem, Inc. (NTRI), WOOF

Each week Value Line Investment Survey publishes a list of stocks that have had growth in Revenue, Earnings, Cash Flow, Dividends and Book Value that averaged 10% over the past 10 years and are expected to continue with the same growth numbers for the next 5 years.

I have taken that list and run them through the Barchart technical indicators to find the stocks with the highest Weighted Alpha and current technical buy signals that are 80% or better.

Today's list includes Nutrisystem (NASDAQ:NTRI), Monster Beverage (NASDAQ:MNST), Maximus (NYSE:MMS), VCA Antech (NASDAQ:WOOF) and Allergan (NYSE:AGN).
