5 Rocket Stocks Worth Buying This Week

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- No news is good news this morning, as Mr. Market tries to stealthily continue on the rally that's been taking place below most investors' radar this summer.

Monday's session is kicking off to a fairly flat start, as often happens when there's a lack of earth-shattering events that took place over the weekend. Across the pond, worldwide markets are looking calm and mixed, what can only be described as a good sign for investors here at home this morning.

The S&P 500 has been tracking higher since the start of June, range-bound in a supremely well-defined trend channel. Now, with shares approaching trend line resistance, it's likely we'll see some semblance of a pullback as the market bleeds off some overbought momentum.

But here's the thing: The market doesn't feel overbought right here; in fact, it still feels like investor sentiment is still skewed towards the bear side of things.

Believe it or not, that's actually a good thing for stocks. It means that there's still an abundance of dry powder sitting on the sidelines (largely in bonds, for instance) ready to be deployed into equities when investors feel ready again. That's why we're turning to a new set of Rocket Stocks this week.

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.
