NOTE: Today’s watch list with annotated charts can be found here.

On Friday – the week, month, and the 3rd quarter of 2017 all came to a simultaneous close with the main indexes posting weekly, monthly, and quarterly gains.

The S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite, and the Russell 2000 actually hit all-time highs.

For the week, the Nasdaq added +1.07% and closed less than 5 points shy of 6500, while making September its third straight month of gains. The S&P 500 closed the week up +0.68%, the Dow ended +0.14%, and both rose for a sixth month in a row.

Small caps have been participating as of late, and leading the rally in recent weeks.

This represents a change, as for the first 8-months of the year, the Nasdaq soared +19% while the small-cap S&P 600 had been flat.

But in September, the S&P 600 shot +8% higher, while the Nasdaq’s gain for the month was only +1%.

The market remains in its uptrend and breakouts continue to be buyable.

As far as our current watch list…

I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, and added two new stocks to our watch list.

We now have stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is MMSI. It has solid ranks, great fundamentals, and is very near its TRIGGER PRICE as shares are carving out a nice base near new highs and just above the support of the 50-day moving average.

No one has to wait for me to issue any type of alert. Any trading above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have this set up confirming a BUY signal up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.

NOTE: If you would like to be notified via email or text message when one of these stocks breaks out, make sure you are on the BreakOuts Alerts list here.
