The Winners 📈
△ #2 S&P 500 – Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc held at #2 for the third week in a row on the ST Top 25 S&P 500 list.
This is a promising COVID play and in a momentum based market that’s 🔥
The stock is up a cool 71% YTD.
The YTD chart and Friday’s breakout candle is a Picasso for technicians 🎨
△ #9 N100 – Seattle Genetics, Inc. aged like a fine wine this week, it just kept improving as time passed.
The stock advanced 12.50% and traded up everyday.
Similar to $REGN, $SGEN closed at an all time high on Friday with authority. Sweet breakout.
This isn’t just your grandma buying. It’s now up 49% YTD.
△ #1 R2K – Novavax, Inc. gained 42% this week like it was no biggie. $NVAX has finished in the top spot on the ST Top 25 R2K list every week since the inception of the ST Top 25 back in May.
It’s leading the 2nd place name by nearly 1000%.
If you have been in this name for a while, welp, you’re buying the next round pal cause you got them fat money bags bro 💰💰💰
Keep an eye peeled to see if it can extend its YTD gain of 1,572% into Q3👀
Admire this textbook wedge break with us.
△ #1 N100 – Zoom Video Communications inc, is it any surprise to see this name in the top spot of the ST Top 25 N100 list once again? Nope.
$ZM rose 9% on Monday alone and finished the week with another new all time closing high.
It is up 258% YTD.
△ #10 N100 – BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. gained 9 spots on the ST Top 25 N100 list thanks to a colossal 17% week.
$BMRN closed at an all time high on Friday with volume running 184% above average. It can’t be a coincidence to see the iShares Nasdaq Biotech ETF break out of a 5 year base and to see $BMRN hit a 52-week high.
△ #14 R2K – MacroGenics Inc debuted this week on the ST Top 25 R2K at #14. The stock didn’t disappoint, ripping 44%. Well done Freshman.
$MGNX ramped 10% on Monday and then ramped 10% again on Wednesday and Friday 😳
The Sinners 📉
Not a lot of losers out there among the top stocks across the indices but here are a couple that underachieved relative to the hoedown that was week $25.
▼ #15 S&P500 – eBay Inc was up 1.32% this week. It was the ST Top 25 S&P 500’s smallest gainer.
$EBAY chopped around a bit but it didn’t gain or lose more than 1% any day of the week. On June 4th, the stock opened up 10% but since then it has only filled the gap and faded.
It’s still up a tidy 35% YTD.
▼ #23 N100 – Lululemon Athletica Inc was the worst performing name in the ST Top 25 N100 list but it still closed positive for the week. It gained a third of a percent but fell 6 spots from #17 to #23.
$LULU has rallied over 100% from its low on March 18th, it’s only fair that it takes a breather. Namaste 🙏🏻
