Summary

96% technical buy signals.

100% gain in the last year.

New highs on 50% of the trading days this last month.

This morning I wanted to find 5 Large Cap stocks that had performed well over the last year and still appeared to have some juice left in them.  I used Barchart to sort the stocks in The S&P 500 Large Cap Index first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then again for technical buy signals above 80%.  As always I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistent price appreciation.  Today's Watch List includes:

Abiomed (ABMD), Align Technology (ALGN), Netflix (NFLX), Ralph Lauren (RL) and Valero Energy (VLO)
