Significant Changes Since Last Week:
While the Top 25 was rather calm there was a host of activity in the Bottom 25. There are four new members: Universal Technical (UTI) at #14, Impax Labs (IPXL) at #16, Hanger, Inc. (HNGR) at #22 and First Solar (FSLR) at #24. The worst performing stock Republic Airways (RJETQ) performance remained within one percentage point at (92.37%) after posting a (92.75%) last week. This is much calmer than the Top 25 #1 slot that moved over 44 percentage points. Most of the movement for existing stocks listed in this area was to the worse side with First NBC Bank moving from #7 to #4 giving up (67.3%) so far this year and Virtusa (VRTU) moving from #25 to #15 with a year-to-date loss of (46.7%). Where there was very little change in the composition of the Top 25 members there was a great deal of change in this group. There were fewer Largecap stocks on the list this week as well as an increase in Health Care stocks overall. Software and Services saw a decrease of two stocks.
