After low production in December, industrials are off to a slow start in 2015. Still, year-to-date, industrials — as measured by the Industrial SPDR (NYSEARCA:XLI) — are at least managing to outpace the S&P 500 with 2% gains.
Within the sector are a number of industrials with lots of momentum; specifically, three stocks in the sector jumped out at me in my latest research.
My Turner Analytics system, which uses sophisticated software and tools to screen over 6,000 stocks and exchange-traded funds based on fundamental and technical research, has flagged all three of these tech stocks as “strong buys” right now.
Turner Analytics is unlike any other trade-timing tool out there, marrying both fundamental and technical analysis to zero in on big winners. My fundamental components include an analysis of a company’s financials and operations that will drive up the demand for shares, while my technical ratings tell you exactly when to buy and when to sell.
Just today, for example, my market-timing trade-bias research has revealed screaming potential in industrial stocks right now. This area of the market is flashing a strong bullish rating via my Turner Analytics tool, meaning there is a tailwind for every company in this segment of the market. And three industrial stocks have been identified as very strong — in other words, they have more potential than their peers.
