Company Description

Why We Like It:
MTW is in the industrial goods sector. The company has two main divisions. One business sells cranes and the other sells foodservice equipment. The stock shot higher in late January following a better than expected earnings report. Then after digesting its gains with a two-week sideways consolidation the rally started again.

The past few days have seen MTW breakout past round-number resistance at $30.00 and then once again consolidate sideways. Now shares are hitting new highs and we want to jump on board this momentum trade.

I am suggesting small bullish positions at the opening bell tomorrow morning. We're suggesting a stop loss just below the 10-dma. Our target is $34.85.

*Small positions*

Suggested Position: buy MTW stock @ (the opening bell)
