5 Rocket Stocks Set to Rally

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- The tail end of earnings season is in full swing this week, as another set of firms gear up to report their numbers to investors. When it comes to the opportunity for big stock moves, there's nothing quite like earnings season.

>>5 Stocks Ready to Break Out

Earnings are a big deal; they're one of just four fundamental updates that investors get access to each year. So it's not surprising that earnings calls can inject some serious volatility into the broad market.

That's exactly what we're seeing this month: strong overall earnings numbers are sent the S&P 500 breaking out to new all-time highs above 1,700 last week, an important move from a technical standpoint. With a new high-water mark in equities, it's worth taking a look at five Rocket Stock names worth trading this week.

>>5 Big Stocks to Trade for Gains

For the uninitiated, "Rocket Stocks" are our list of companies with short-term gain catalysts and longer-term growth potential. 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 210 weeks, our weekly list of five plays has outperformed the S&P 500 by 82.1%.

Without further ado, here's a look at this week's Rocket Stocks.
