Important: Typically, these trades offer a risk: reward ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 in the next 6 months, which implies 2x to 3x rewards when compared to risks. So, be sure to set your stop-loss levels and target prices accordingly to manage your risk. In addition, these trade ideas are triggered using daily closing prices, not intra-day pricing. So, if you participate in these trades, make sure that you only buy the stock once its daily close is above the recommended price level.

That said, here are the top 10 stocks to watch for a breakout, in no particular order.

#1 Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: TAST)

Sector: Consumer Cyclical | Restaurants

Reason: Formation of an Ascending Triangle Pattern

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for TAST is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the ascending triangle pattern, at around $7.50. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for GGG is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the flag pattern, at around $73.00. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#4 Apollo Global Management, Inc. (NYSE: APO)

Sector:  Financial | Asset Management

Reason: Formation of a Symmetrical Triangle Pattern

A symmetrical triangle is a chart pattern formed by two converging trend lines connecting a series of sequential peaks and troughs. These two lines result in the formation of a triangle that appears to be symmetrical.

A symmetrical triangle pattern is usually formed when there is an indecision in the price movements and there is uncertainty among the buyers and sellers. This chart pattern represents a period of consolidation before the price breaks out or breaks down. In case a breakout occurs from the upper trend line, it is a strong bullish indication as it signifies the start of a new bullish trend.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for APO is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the symmetrical triangle pattern, at around $52.50. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#5 Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN)

Reason: Formation of a Consolidation Area in the Daily Chart

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for HUN is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the consolidation area, at around $29.60. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#6 RAPT Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: RAPT)

Sector: Healthcare | Biotechnology

Reason: Formation of a Double Bottom Pattern

A Double Bottom Pattern looks like the letter W and is characterized by two well-defined lows at approximately the same price level. This twice-touched low is usually a very strong support level. The high point between the two bottoms’ resistance levels is called the neckline. Once a breakout happens from this key price level (neckline), it signifies the start of a bullish move.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for RAPT is above the neckline of the double bottom pattern, at around $25.60. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#9 Canoo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOEV)

Sector: Consumer Cyclical | Auto Manufacturers

Reason: Formation of a Falling Wedge Pattern

A falling wedge pattern is formed by joining two downward-sloping, converging trendlines having a contracting range. The pattern appears to be wide at the top and continues to contract as prices fall. A breakout from a falling wedge pattern can indicate either reversal or continuation depending on where the pattern appeared in the trend.

A stock that has broken out of a falling wedge pattern would have gained momentum and would have the potential to move higher.
