>>5 Stocks Poised for Breakouts

This new wave of equity optimism is setting the stage for even higher price levels by the end of September. That's why we're turning to a new set of Rocket Stocks this week.

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.
