Preface from Tim: one “bullish breakout” I really like is SlopeCharts usage (shown below), which has been steadily climbing since we launched the new site last weekend. Please note clicking on any of the hyperlinks in this post will bring up its chart, and also remember that preceding a ticker symbol with a “$” in the comments section (example: $FB) will provide a hyperlink in the same manner.
Here are five momentum stocks making a move primarily on earnings.
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARWR) jumped $1.25 to $9.00 on 5.6 million shares Wednesday, almost four times its average volume. The drug developer reported fiscal second quarter earnings on Tuesday that matched Wall Street expectations. The move broke the stock out of a two-month coiling consolidation. At its intraday high of $9.60, the stock got up to resistance at the rising trendline before backing off. A breakthrough there could lead to $13.
