Sometimes you just want to keep a list of stocks that act too well. At the top of the list? Celgene (CELG) . This company had a very good quarter with lots of growth but has been stuck in a range forever. Now it is back to its old self, unlike the other major biotechs, and it's been soaring. Just plain bothersome not to know.
Next up? Micron (MU) and Advanced Micro (AMD) ? Both act like they are going to get bids any minute. AMD just did a major refinancing, so it is hard to believe something's going on there. Catch up to Nvidia (NVDA) ? But boy does it act well. Micron's breaking out but there was no real news flow on it that I thought warranted this move.
These are the oddities you keep spotting, stocks that don't come in when they should.
On any given day, there are a half-dozen plain old suspicious-acting stocks.
I follow them and I just wait, confident that something else is propelling them, something we will find out both soon enough and too late to profit from them.
