The 5 Best Large Caps

October 28, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: LUV , LM , BLK

Today I used Barchart to sort the S&P 500 Large Cap Index to find the stocks hitting the most frequent new highs with the best charts and technical indicators.  One of the reasons I'm so high on Barchart is that it allows me to pick not only the technical indicators I like but also the time frame as well.

I like to know what is happening now and in the current month not ancient history.

Today's list includes Southwest Airlines (LUV), Legg Mason (LM), Blackrock (BLK),  Cincinnati Financial (CINF) and Western Digital (WDC):
