I’m sure you’re all aware of the profit taking in many of the momentum stocks. As the profit taking is happening market breadth is improving. So where is the money going? Just where we suspected it would go. Into stocks that have been in multi-month consolidations. Below are charts of many of the stocks that consolidated across the summer and are now being bought aggressively. Stocks like these will most likely provide the fuel for a continued rally. One thing to note is that many of these stocks are defensive or have large dividends.

Over the weekend I noticed a pattern repeating in a wide variety of the stocks I actively track that can provide an indication of where the market is likely to go next. There are several stocks across almost every sector that are currently painting multi-month consolidation patterns.

If they start to break higher the market will go with them. If they break down
Below are charts with the bullish intensity scores for the most bullish stocks on Twitter for the week and month ending 9/24/13. The broad theme of internet stocks lead the weekly list. Yahoo (YHOO) and Baidu (BIDU) search and content plays. Priceline (PCLN), TripAdvisor (TRIP) , Yelp (YELP), and Groupon (GRPN) form another sub-theme of recreation and entertainment. Then of course Facebook (FB) and Zynga (ZNGA) as social and gaming.
This week Facebook (FB) jumped to the top of the most bullish stocks on Twitter. Technology however, seems to be the major theme with VMware (VMW), Qualcomm (QCOM), Dell (DELL), F5 Networks (FFIV), Juniper Networks (JNPR), and EMC (EMC) making the list.
