Eight stocks bucking the down-trend --- some even have good financials!

Instead of doing our usual quick post announcing that the weekend's free stock signals are now available at Alert HQ, I'd like to just focus on a few stocks that are standing out from the crowd.

Since almost all the signals at Alert HQ are SELL signals, why dwell on the negative? Instead, I'd like to present eight stocks that are still looking good despite the current pull-back.

The following stocks are the only ones that were added to the Trend Leaders list this week. Usually, there are over a hundred stocks that come onto the list in any given week. This time - just eight. What this means is that these eight stocks are exhibiting strong up-trends as measured by Aroon, MACD and DMI analysis.

Symbol Name Price
DPSDr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc$35.72
IDSAIndustrial Services of America, Inc.$19.62
CPEXCPEX Pharmaceuticals, Inc.$25.25
CBANColony Bankcorp, Inc.$8.62
CLWClearwater Paper Corporation$60.01
FFFDNorth Central Bancshares, Inc.$19.27
SRLSSeraCare Life Sciences Inc$5.09
ABCOThe Advisory Board Company$38.09

So from a technical analysis point of view, all of these stocks are relatively strong. From a fundamental point of view it's more of a mixed bag. Still, there are a few that stand out for have strong financials as well as attractive charts. In particular, Dr Pepper Snapple and Clearwater Paper Corporation are exceptional while Industrial Services of America and SeraCare Life Sciences look pretty good, too.

As evidenced by these stocks, there's still life in this market and I wouldn't be too quick to throw in the towel.

Brazil - in a bubble or on a roll?

A couple of years ago, no one recognized the real estate bubble even though it was under everyone's nose. Now, analysts and bloggers are seeing bubbles everywhere they look. One of them, they say is in Brazil whose Bovespa stock market index has doubled in the last 12 months. Does the bubble accusation hold water? I don't think so and here are 7 reasons why Brazil is by no means a bubble economy: Exports have held up over the past year thanks to demand from China for Brazil's soya exports and iron ore. This was helped by the the Brazilian government's drive to improve trade links with Asia and Africa. Export diversification, spurred by a more active trade policy and increased focus on "south-south" trade under current president Lula, helped mitigate the decline in demand from OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries A "sensible" economic framework has been in place since the 1990's. This has included inflation
