Company Description

Why We Like It:
RAD operates approximately 4,700 drug stores across the U.S. The stock appears to be ignoring the market's decline today. Shares recently broke out from a three-week consolidation and traders bought the dip this morning. The trend is bullish but I would consider this an aggressive trade since we might be going against the grain if the major indices continue to sink.

I am suggesting small bullish positions at the opening bell. We'll try and limit our risk with a stop loss at $1.54. More conservative traders may want to use a stop closer to $1.59 instead.
