Alert HQ - first list of stock picks based on weekly data

As many readers may know, I have been running a scan of about 7200 stocks each weekend looking for TradeRadar BUY and SELL signals based on daily data. I have been making these signals available on the Alert HQ page of this site.

Today, I ran the first scan based on weekly data. As this is still in a beta stage of development, i.e., working but with potential for further improvement, I thought I would make this first list available for free. Here goes.
