Company Description:

Why We Like It:
We had CSH on the PremierInvestor play list for a while but shares never hit our trigger to open positions. This time the stock has broken out past resistance near $41.00 and closed at new 52-week highs. CSH makes short-term loans and with unemployment still high and likely to stay high the company should be doing a booming business. After four weeks of consolidating sideways in the $39-41 zone I suspect CSH is poised for a new leg higher. I'm suggesting bullish positions now with a stop at $38.99. Our first target is $44.90.

Suggested Position: CSH stock at $41.18(?)
