"Rocket Stocks" is our list of companies with short-term gain catalysts and longer-term growth potential. Here are five to buy this week. Verizon Communications  (VZ - Get Report)  is the first. Don't let the rate hike fool you -- Verizon's dominance in mobile subscribers and hefty yield are fueling upside in this dividend payer. Deere  (DE - Get Report)  is the second.  A rebound in soft commodities is driving growth again in Deere. Analog Devices  (ADI - Get Report)  is the third. Even if you don't recognize this tech giant, chances are you own its products. An upswing in analyst sentiment makes it buyable this week. Motorola Solutions (MSI - Get Report) is the fourth. Motorola is getting boosted by hopes that a Trump administration translates into more spending room public safety equipment budgets. DaVita  (DVA - Get Report)  is the fifth. Investors are overplaying the risks to DaVita if Obamacare gets repealed -- now looks like a good buying opportunity.
