Market Momentum – Companies Report, Market Responds. Sandals Sale

Here is the latest weekly digest (May 8th – May 14th, 2017). A quick easy read of this week’s top and most relevant business news. No fluff, just the highlights.

As predicted last week, this has been a big week for the market. Quite a few companies released results and we saw the related movements in the prices of a few stocks. I expect that we will continue to see movement in the prices as people digest the results and also as more results come out this week.

There were 12 stocks advancing more than 10% this week (compared to 7 last week). They were

  • PULS making a 53.04% jump,
  • KEX (up 22.6% after jumping 24.4% last week. The stock is now up 52.4% since the start of this year),
  • MTL (up 30.8%%),
  • ISP (by +30.1%),
  • CFF (by +27.9%),
  • CCC (by +18.1%),
  • 1834 (by +17.8%),
  • and others including BRG (+17.5%), JETCON (+14.11%), ROC and KREMI.
