If you just woke up from your New Year’s festivities, well, you haven’t missed anything.  The market has hemmed and hawed with the net effect a move of less than 1%.  The odds still favor a move to the upside, but wait for the market to tell you what to do.  

Most stocks follow the market, and Conagra (CAG) is no different.  I always like this stock on a breakout, and think that will happen soon.  Just be patient.


One stock you don’t have to wait for is Rite-Aid (RAD).  It’s my favorite drug retailer (mostly because I shop there) and the latest break says it’s going higher.

Back next week to see if this Rip Van Winkle market has arisen from its slumber.
