52-Week High: $7.1752-Week Low: $2.82 Regions is one of the most liquid stocks traded, with over 16 million shares changing hands a day. I really like Regions because, based on technical analysis, the stock is trading near a 52-week high with a strong base in price support. More impressive is the 60% climb in price over the last year. The mean analyst price target is $7.46. As with Home Depot, I would prefer a higher price target or a dip in price before entering. Short interest is very small at about 1.5% and well below my comfort-level threshold. After some losses and even a decline in revenue, Regions is on the right path for a respectable P/E ratio. Regions also beat in the last four out of four quarters.
