Each week, in my research for potential rocket stocks, I look for the possible near-term catalysts that could drive specific stocks higher. This past week, despite the volatility, most stocks ended up higher.


(GOOG) - Get Free Report



(F) - Get Free Report



(ORCL) - Get Free Report

-- you name it. They were up.

The goal for this week is to look for stocks that are likely to trade with more volatility in the coming days, with the hope that those big moves in stock price will be in a positive direction.

Here are three stocks found in this week's

Rocket Stock portfolio

, which includes such stocks as


( COMS) and


(HUN) - Get Free Report
