Alert HQ for the week ending May 15, 2009 -- Trend Leaders, Trend Busters, Swing Signals, stock alerts and more

The power outage in our neighborhood last night caused us some delay, but I can now announce that the latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ. Each week we scan about 7300 stocks and ETFs looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. We apply a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques to identify those stocks that are beginning to move. Our goal is to identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside.

In addition to alerts, we also have our lists of Trend Leaders, a collection of stocks in strong up-trends, Cash Flow Kings whose free cash flow yield is 25% or greater, Bollinger Band Breakouts, stocks or ETFs that have moved at least 3% above their upper Bollinger Band or at least 3% below their lower Bollinger Band, Swing Signals, stocks that have bounced off a higher or lower Bollinger Band and Trend Busters, stocks or ETFs that have violated a current trend. These lists are all available at Alert HQ.

For those of you who are interested in dividends, we have now added Dividend Yield to all our signals. Look for it on the far right in all our data tables. You can sort on it, too.

Here is what we have this week --

Tech stocks weakened and bank stocks surged. Despite the divergence, we were able to generate an even bigger list of Trend Leaders this week, showing that plenty of strength still lurks within this market. Plus, we have bigger lists of Swing Signals and Bollinger Band Breakouts.
