Put down the 10-K filings and the stock screeners. It's time to take a break from the traditional methods of generating investment ideas. Instead, let the crowd do it for you.

From hedge funds to individual investors, scores of market participants are turning to social media and market data to figure out which stocks are worth watching. It's a concept that's known as "crowdsourcing," and it uses the masses to identify emerging trends in the market.

Crowdsourcing has long been a popular tool for the advertising industry, but it also makes a lot of sense as an investment tool. After all, the market is completely driven by the supply and demand, so it can be valuable to see what names are trending among the crowd.

While some fund managers are already trying to leverage social media resources like Twitter to find algorithmic trading opportunities, for most investors, crowdsourcing works best for investors who want a starting point in their analysis.

We'll leverage the power of the crowd to take a look at some of the most active stocks on the market...

Mobileye NV

  • Nearest Resistance: $63.54
  • Nearest Support: $61
  • Catalyst: Acquisition

Up first on our list of Monday's most actively traded stocks is $13.7 billion computer-vision stock Mobileye NV (MBLY) . Mobileye is up almost 30% this afternoon, rallying hard following news that Intel (INTC - Get Report) is buying the firm for $63.54 a share in cash. Shares traded up to within 4% of that purchase price at the onset of trading this morning, implying an 87% probability from Wall Street that the deal gets done. That small premium means that the money has already been made on the Mobileye trade at this point -- investors who missed today's gap higher should look elsewhere for trading opportunities this week.

CSX Corp.

  • Nearest Resistance: $50
  • Nearest Support: $46
  • Catalyst: Technical Setup

Railroad giant CSX Corp. (CSX - Get Report) is up a little over 1% on big volume this afternoon, getting attention for technical reasons a week after appointing Hunter Harrison as CEO. CSX has spent most of 2017 consolidating sideways after a strong rally from June's lows. That technical setup is giving shares a chance to bleed off some overbought momentum before their next potential up-leg. For CSX bulls, the next buy signal comes on a push through round-number resistance up at $50.

Frontier Communications Corp.

  • Nearest Resistance: $3
  • Nearest Support: N/A
  • Catalyst: Ex-Dividend, Technical Setup

Shares of mid-cap telco Frontier Communications Corp. (FTR - Get Report) are down 3.5% as I write this afternoon, swatted lower through a combination of shares going ex-dividend and a bearish technical setup. Frontier's 10.5-cent quarterly payout, announced on February 15, gets paid out to shareholders on March 31. Exacerbating the selling this afternoon is the violation of FTR's support level at $3 thanks to last month's fourth-quarter earnings miss. Put simply, you still don't want to own shares until they can establish some semblance of support again. Frontier may pay out a hefty yield right now, but shareholders have lost even more in the form of FTR's market value since the calendar flipped to 2017.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.

  • Nearest Resistance: $110
  • Nearest Support: $105
  • Catalyst: Technical Setup

Meanwhile, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (BABA - Get Report) is breaking out this afternoon. Shares had been forming a textbook example of an ascending triangle pattern for the last two months, and today's push through $105 resistance is the buy signal. Put simply, if BABA can hold that breakout through today's close, it makes sense to pull the trigger on this trade from a risk/reward standpoint. Look for Alibaba to make a run for 52-week highs just below $110 next.

ICICI Bank Ltd.

  • Nearest Resistance: $8.80
  • Nearest Support: $8.50
  • Catalyst: Technical Setup

Another big foreign stock that's topping the NYSE's most active list today is $25 billion Indian banking stock ICICI Bank Ltd. (IBN) . This big-cap banking stock is another technical trade to watch Monday, as shares test breakout territory at $8.50. Resistance is more of a long-term range in IBN; prior highs from last fall peaked out around $8.80. If you're looking for a smart way to play the IBN breakout, it makes sense to take a starter position on today's 6% up-move, followed by scaling up to a full position once shares clear $8.80.

Intel Corp.

  • Nearest Resistance: $38
  • Nearest Support: $35
  • Catalyst: Mobileye Acquisition

The other side of the Mobileye trade is chip giant Intel Corp. (INTC - Get Report) . Intel is correcting this afternoon, down 2.3% as investors weigh whether the Mobileye deal happened at an attractive price. Don't let the correction fool you, though. Long-term Intel's price trajectory is up and to the right. Shares are forming a very long-term ascending triangle setup, a price pattern that triggers a buy signal on a push through resistance up at $38. Simply put, if Intel breaks through $38 in March, it's a buy.
