52-Week High: $40.20Beta: 1.23 Price to Book: 1.12 EchoStar is by far the lowest-volume trading stock in this group. I usually focus on stocks with over a million shares a day in volume, but there is a lot to like about EchoStar. Along with Dentsply, EchoStar reported earnings that initially caused weak hands to dump their shares. It didn't take long (the low of the day today is the opening print) for the stock to recover and move on and up to a new 52-week high. With EchoStar's share strength, any dip is a buying opportunity. EchoStar doesn't pay a dividend and is my most speculative play here. It's not my first choice, but the chart doesn't lie. The stock is clearly in a bull trend, and with earnings out of the way, it appears this bird will fly higher. At the time of publication the author had no position in any of the stocks mentioned.
