Company Description

Why We Like It:
GT is in the consumer goods sector. They manufacture tires and related products. The stock has developed some bullish momentum with shares up four weeks in a row. The strong pace of auto sales in the U.S. should be a positive backdrop for GT.

The last few days have seen GT consolidate sideways in the $21.50-22.35 zone. Shares currently look poised to breakout of this range. I am suggesting a trigger to launch positions at $22.50. If triggered our target is $25.00.

Trigger @ 22.50

Suggested Position: buy GT stock @ (trigger)

Company Description

Why We Like It:
Yahoo.com is an Internet portal with search and content and more. YHOO also owns a stake in e-commerce company Alibaba.com. For years shares of YHOO were dead money but that changed back in mid 2012. Since then YHOO's stock has been consistently working its way higher. A lot of that has to do with Wall Street giving new CEO Marissa Myer a chance to turn the company around.

YHOO spent about six weeks consolidating sideways on either side of the $28.00 level. The last three weeks have seen a bullish breakout and a surge past its July highs. Now YHOO sits a new multi-year highs and looks poised to keep climbing.

Today's high was $30.46. I am suggesting a trigger to open small bullish positions at $30.60. I say small positions because YHOO can be volatile at times. If triggered our target is $34.75.

Trigger @ 30.60 *small positions*

Suggested Position: buy YHOO stock @ (trigger)
