At StateoftheMarkets.com, we strive to “own the best and ignore the rest” in our equity portfolios. Toward this end, each day we search our database for a “top stock” (a top rated company in terms of earnings strength as well as company and industry performance) that presents a strong technical “set up” and a good entry point.
In short, when our equity team is looking to add a stock to one of our portfolios, the “bull’s eye” stock shown below is generally their first choice.
Why We Like The Stock:
Mobile Mini (MINI) is our most compelling buy today due to the fact that it is a top rated stock (in terms of earnings strength and company/industry performance) with a positive technical set-up. Diversified support services stocks don’t look too much alike, as shown in MINI’s direct competitors Copart (CPRT), KAR Auction Services (KAR), and Healthcare Services Group (HCSG). This isn’t a bad thing, though, as MINI has an extremely solid technical set-up, with strong uptrends in both the intermediate- and long-term. The stock traded as high as $37.49 in mid-May, before pulling back and consolidating at current prices over the next month. Currently, MINI is sitting at an attractive entry point just above its 50-day moving average. We like the solid price base MINI formed throughout the month of June, and would be buyers here for a short-term run back to the $37 area.
We Would Be Buyers:
At the current price (~$33.75).
