My 5 Favorite Mid Cap Stocks

Today I wanted to find 5 Mid Cap Stocks that not only made great returns in the last year but still seemed to have some more upside momentum. I used Barchart to sort the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index stocks first for the highest Weighted Alpha, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more.

Next I used the Flipchart feature to make sure they consistently traded above their 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages.

My watch-list today includes: Take-Two Interactive, IPG Photonics, Cognex, First Solar and NVR.
