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 Molson Coors Beverage Company (NYSE: TAP)

Sector: Consumer Defensive | Beverages – Brewers

Reason: Falling Wedge Pattern Breakout

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 stock has currently broken out of a falling wedge pattern. However, the ideal buy level for TAP is above the nearest resistance level of $52.30. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#2 Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: DWAC)

Sector: Financial | Shell Companies

Reason: Symmetrical Triangle Pattern Breakout

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 stock has currently broken out of a symmetrical triangle pattern. However, the ideal buy level for DWAC is if the stock closes above the immediate resistance level of $73.30. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#3 The Southern Company (NYSE: SO)

Sector: Utilities | Utilities – Regulated Electric

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 level is called a 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 SO is above the neckline of the double bottom pattern, at around $68.80. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.

#4 Ovintiv Inc. (NYSE: OVV)

Sector: Energy | Oil & Gas E&P

Reason: Formation of an Uptrend Channel

An uptrend channel or an ascending channel is the price action contained between upward sloping parallel lines. It is formed by a lower trend line that connects the swing lows, and an upper channel line that joins the swing highs. A stock usually trades between the two rails of the uptrend channel before finally breaking out from the upper rail.

Buy Level(s): The ideal buy level for OVV is if the stock breaks out of the uptrend channel and has a daily close above $42.00. This is marked in the chart below as a green color dotted line.
