Looks like all problems are in the past as speculators anticipate another earnings season where analysts undershoot, and companies beat and everyone sings kumbaya.  S&P is surging 4% on the week, and 1317 was 'resistance' for a whole hour or so.

On that note, as we approach the half way mark of 2011, I've screened for the best performers year to date.  Parameters to exclude some of the small fry include

  1. >$300M market cap
  2. >$10 stock price
  3. >100,000 a day trading volume
  4. >50% return YTD

102 stocks made the cut
