5 Rocket Stocks Ready to Blast Off

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Last week wasn't exactly a good week to be a stock investor. The S&P 500 shed 4.3% between Monday's open and Friday's close, erasing all but 3% of the gains that Mr. Market had earned year-to-date. But if the week was bad, this month has been worse.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, for instance, has lost ground in 12 of the last 13 trading sessions. That's the worst 13-session losing streak for the index since back in 1974. But with this morning's price action looking decidedly bullish, chances are the big indices are going to be earning back some of those lost points in today's session after being oversold for so long. That should provide an opportunity for buyers in the broad market right now.

>>5 Stocks Setting Up to Break Out

To take full advantage of that turn in momentum, we're looking to a new set of Rocket Stock names for Monday.

For the uninitiated, "Rocket Stocks" are our list of companies with short-term gain catalysts and longer-term growth potential. To find them, I run a weekly quantitative screen that seeks out stocks with a combination of analyst upgrades and positive earnings surprises to identify rising analyst expectations, a bullish signal for stocks in any market. After all, where analysts' expectations are increasing, institutional cash often follows.

In the last 151 weeks, our weekly list of five plays has outperformed the S&P 500 by 82.72%.

With that, here's a look at this week's Rocket Stocks.
