NQ Mobile Is a Hyper-Growth Opportunity

Microsoft: Market cap $264.98 billion with revenue projected to grow 6.60% next year and earnings to grow 8.63% annually for the next five years. Institutional ownership is 69.39%.

Oracle: Market cap $152.39 billion with revenue predicted to grow 5.20% next year and earnings estimated to increase 10.62% annually for the next five years. Institutional ownership is 60.23%.

SAP: Market cap $90.3 billion with revenue expected to increase 9.30% next year and earnings projected to increase 11% annually for the next five years. Institutional ownership is only 4.01%.

Summary

When you compare hyper-growth stock to the industry leaders, it's like comparing battleships to jet skis. The smaller stocks are more nimble and can turn on a dime, so you need to use charts that are sensitive to change.

My favorite charts compares a stock's price to its 20-, 50- and 100-day moving averages, Barchart's proprietary Trend Spotter buy/sell signal and its 14-day turtle channel. Using those parameters give me a good sense of a stock's momentum and I usually bail when it drops below its 50-day moving averages.

If the stock's price keeps gaining, I look for the short interest to bail fast and cover positions.
