Look at the ripples from that small business survey!

Home Depot (HD) , which has been stalled here, is finally putting up some points. I've been waiting for this one to advance.

Domino's (DPZ) , which is a quintessential small business outfit, is having a positive day.

Shares of American Express (AXP) , which has managed to position itself as a small business abettor, are working and I think they have much further to go.

You might want to think about Action Alerts PLUS holding Costco (COST) as a company that can benefit from small business expansion. It has in the past.

I like (WIX) , too, as a company that helps small businesses develop websites. They thrive on business formation.

There are others that should be working but aren't: Square (SQ) and Intuit (INTU) . Both benefit when small business grows. I like both stocks.

Finally, there is Paychex (PAYX) which has been a roaring stock but is taking a breather. It is the small-to-medium size payroll processor and it makes a ton of sense to buy here.

Not saying that all of these should just erupt here. I am saying that the survey's results present a decent backdrop for all of these stocks to trade higher.
