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 Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (NYSE: OHI)

Sector: Real Estate | REIT – Healthcare Facilities

Reason: Formation of an Ascending Triangle Pattern

An ascending triangle pattern is a bullish pattern formed by drawing a horizontal line along the swing highs, and a rising trendline along the swing lows. These two lines result in the formation of a triangle. A breakout from this pattern is typically a strong bullish indication.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for OHI is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the ascending triangle pattern, at around $39.30. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

OHI – Ascending Triangle Pattern

#2 iHeartMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: IHRT)

Sector: Communication Services | Broadcasting

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 IHRT is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the symmetrical triangle pattern, at around $18.60. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#3 PVH Corp. (NYSE: PVH)

Sector: Consumer Cyclical | Apparel Manufacturing

Reason: Formation of an Ascending Triangle Pattern

An ascending triangle pattern is a bullish pattern formed by drawing a horizontal line along the swing highs, and a rising trendline along the swing lows. These two lines result in the formation of a triangle. A breakout from this pattern is typically a strong bullish indication.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for PVH is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the ascending triangle pattern, at around $111.00. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#4 SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SAIL)

Sector: Technology | Software – Infrastructure

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.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for SAIL is if the stock breaks out of the falling wedge pattern as well as closes above the immediate resistance level of $54.50. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

SAIL – Falling Wedge Pattern

#5 Broadmark Realty Capital Inc. (NYSE: BRMK)

Sector: Real Estate | REIT – Mortgage

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 BRMK is above the neckline of the double bottom pattern, at around $10.80. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#7 Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. (NYSE: BFAM)

Sector: Consumer Cyclical | Personal Services

Reason: Formation of a Consolidation Area in the Daily Chart

A Consolidation Area is a price action contained between two parallel lines. It is formed by a lower line that connects the lows, and an upper line that joins the highs. A stock usually trades between the two lines of the consolidation area before finally breaking out from the upper rail.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for BFAM is if the stock has a daily close above the breakout level of the consolidation area, at around $182.80. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.
