  • Regional banks, which are another way to play the recovery in the U.S. housing markets, are showing on the 52-week high list every day: $HAFC $CATY $CRBC
  • Recently, Josh Brown mentioned that “If you add up annual profits of the entire airline industry going back to 1948, you get minus $32 billion”, but apparently airlines could occasionally be very lucrative trading vehicles. Just look at the 3-month performance of the entire sector. A few new multi-year highs from the group today - $ALGT, $RJET, $ALK
  • $PCYC has been in the top 10 best performing stocks for 2011 and 2012. Today, it broke out to new all-time highs again. Price momentum could be a catalyst on its own.
