20 growth stocks with improving moving averages

The market is firming these days and what was out of favor is now meeting demand.

Growth stocks had certainly been weak while investors fled to defensive sectors. That is beginning to change now. Using the Premium Stock Screener at out sister site TradingStockAlerts.com, we have identified a list of growth stocks whose 50-day exponential moving average (EMA) has, within the last few days, started to turn up in a bullish direction.

Our criteria for growth stocks is as follows:
  • Company must be profitable
  • Year-over-year quarterly revenue increase 
  • Year-over-year quarterly earnings increase
  • ROE over 20%
  • Debt-to-Equity less than 1
Five out of the twenty stocks are Technology stocks and that's a good sign for the recent rally -- tech often leads the stock market out of bottoms and into a bullish trend. Seven of the twenty are Capital Goods stocks -- these stocks tend to follow the economic cycle and this suggests investors are much more comfortable with global growth picking up as we enter the second half of the year. I might also note that one of the stocks is Mastercard -- that's a vote for the consumer.

With earnings season coming up soon, we could see a real resurgence in those growth stocks that manage to put up decent numbers despite the last few months of economic softness. There's a good chance that today's list contains some of those future growth leaders.

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
