Friday Pick’em: 03/12/21

Last week saw the NASDAQ recover from it’s correction, something our picks needed after the beating they took!

After the beating the Tech sector saw last edition, this week’s green run was greatly appreciated! Still, we’ll give it another week before we pick another NASDAQ stock. With Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan getting approved and signed, we might not have to wait long until Tech starts another run.

Dan’s Stock Pick

Volume: 1.9 M
Short%: 4.77

Dan’s Friday Pick’em is this week is Yellow Corp (YELL), a logistics and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipping company. YELL has been on a great run this week, hitting new 52 week highs each day! This stock is carrying some impressive momentum with it, thanks to some positive news on Monday. Even though they saw a drop in tonnage, a substantial increase in yield was more than enough to drive the rally. Throw in a healthy MACD cross in along with the positive trends in their one year chart, this one has the potential to keep running!

Past Pick’ems Review

DAR continued it’s impressive run last week and was joined by newcomer CNXC. We managed to make it through a week without losing any picks to the dreaded stop loss, although QEP was pennies away from it! ATVI looks to have stabilized and BGS had a nice, quiet first week. We’ll take it while it lasts!
