Watchlist Week of Jan 10th, 2022

Mueller Industries

Mueller Industries (MLI) is an industrial manufacturer whose principal business segments include piping systems, climate products and industrial metals.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Mueller has grown into a global presence and has built a well-earned reputation for providing high-quality products through various operations and brands.

Here’s how the chart is setting up:

And here’s how the stock is setting up with my Stock Surge Indicator (SSI):

·  Surge score: 96/100

·  % Above 52-wk low: 75%

·  Sales growth: +58%

·  Triple momentum: yes

In the past week, Mueller Industries remained one of the few to not sell off with the rest of the market and whose setup, in fact, actually managed to strengthen!

Recently, price action has tightened into a narrow range that looks ripe for a fresh breakout higher.

This stock appears to be offering investors big sales growth, big earnings growth, high relative strength and has absolutely nothing to do with technology.

Therefore, if the market can firm up, MLI looks to have a good chance of moving higher in the near future.

Ultra Clean Holdings Inc.

Next up on today’s list is Ultra Clean Holdings Inc. (UCTT), which designs, engineers and manufactures production tools, modules and subsystems for the semiconductor and display capital equipment markets in the United States and internationally.

Here’s how the chart is setting up:

And here’s how the stock is setting up with my SSI:

·  Surge score: 93/100

·  % Above 52-wk low: 62%

·  Sales growth: +52%

·  Triple momentum: no

UCTT looked great going into last week… So much so that I even added it to the Buy Alert list for my premium Alpha Stocks service.

However, like most stocks, it pulled back over the last several days and broke the low of the pivot area, never hitting our buy trigger.

Stepping back to take a look, the set up still looks to be strong but would require a 9% stop loss, which for me is too much in this uncertain environment.

Therefore, I suggest keeping this one on your radar to see if it tightens up again over the next couple weeks.

The breakout could still turn out to be a strong one since shares will be even more consolidated into strong hands after this shakeout. If that happens, we’re going to want to be there.

iShares Russell 2000 Growth ETF

Finally, I want to take a look at the iShares Russell 2000 Growth ETF (IWO), which is the ETF I brought to your attention earlier this week.

IWO is a growth-focused exchange-traded fund (ETF) that represents the two areas seeing the most underperformance right now… Small-cap stocks and growth stocks.

Here’s how the chart is setting up:

And here’s how the stock is setting up with my SSI:

·  Surge score: 33/100

·  % Above 52-wk low: 0%

·  Sales growth: N/A

·  Triple momentum: yes (short)

As regular readers know, growth stocks have come under some pretty heavy selling pressure over the last couple weeks.

That’s leading many hedge funds to start selling the tech sector heavier than they have in more than 10 years.

Add to that the persistent underperformance of small cap stocks found in the Russell 2000, and you have a strong candidate for a short investment.

Therefore, I’m suggesting you consider selling IWO short if it breaks the big support level near $275.
