5 Large Cap Winners

|Includes: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), MU, NFLX, RHT, VRTX
Summary

High Weighted Alpha.

High technical buy signals.

Trading above their 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages.

Today I wanted to find Large Cap stocks that had the highest gains in the past but still had a high current price momentum.  I used Barchart to sort the S&P 500 Large Cap Index first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then for technical buy signals above 90%.  Next I used to Flipchart feature to make sure they had current and consistent price appreciation.  Today's Watch List includes:

Netflix (NFLX), Micron Technology (MU), Red Hat (RHT), Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) and Hewlett Packard (HPE)
