Stingy Investor Tip Sheet

A little positive momentum

After spending the day following the collapse of financial titans, I was in the mood for something more positive. Thankfully there is good news out there. To find it, join me on a hunt for stocks with positive momentum.

Strong momentum is easy to find. Just look for stocks with big gains. Today I'll stick with U.S. stocks trading on the NYSE that are up the most, so far, this year. But I wanted to avoid penny stocks and companies without net income. Despite the sour mood of the markets, I was pleased to find a long list of uplifting stocks that fit the positive momentum bill.
