Today, earnings announcements continue with Dave & Buster’s (PLAY) and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) releasing numbers after the closing bell.

United Technologies (UTX) has announced plans to buy Rockwell Collins (COL) from our 2017 Complete Portfolio for $23 billion.

I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, and adding one new stock to our watch list.

We now have 15 stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is CTRL. It has solid ranks, good fundamentals, and is very near its TRIGGER PRICE as shares are carving out a nice base near multi-year 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.
