As I write, the S&P 500 is making yet another (so far unsuccessful) attempt at closing recapturing the uptrend that was in force for most of 2013.

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. In the last 206 weeks, our weekly list of five plays has outperformed the S&P 500 by 79.52%.
