5 Consumer Stocks Setting Up to Charge Higher in 2013

Lennox International

Last up is Lennox International (LII - Get Report), a small-cap heating and air conditioning maker that sells climate control solutions to both the consumer and commercial markets. It doesn't take an expert market technician to see what's going on in Lennox's chart right now -- this stock has been trading higher for all of 2012, climbing more than 54% year-to-date. But is the fact that the rally has been orderly that makes this stock tradable.

That's because LII is currently bouncing higher within an uptrending channel, a price range that's bounded by trendline resistance overhead and trendline support below. Since the start of the year, the channel has done a good job of identifying the likely extent of this stock's moves. Any stock in an uptrending channel presents a buying opportunity, but for risk-averse investors, the best time to buy comes after a bounce off of support.

That bounce is important because it shows that LII can still catch a bid at support before you buy -- support levels do eventually fail, and when they do, you don't want to be left holding the bag. The fact that support has held up on the last seven tests of that price level bode well for more upside. If you decide to be a buyer, I'd recommend keeping a stop just below that support line.
