Raytheon (RTN) and Northrop Grumman (NOC) both have SCTR's above 75 and are looking strong in the face of many charts trying to get back above their 200 DMA's. I like Raytheon a little bit more today because of the conditions of the chart. Raytheon has been in a multi year uptrend and pulled back in Relative Strength (purple) for the last 6 weeks. This break in the trend is important. I like the re-acceleration of the SCTR back above 75. In terms of raw price action, it just keeps testing this $126.50 to $128.50 range. This looks like it probably has the potential to pop right out the topside here.
I like the strong volume on the break outside the wedge yesterday and the MACD is turning up from a neutral level which might also suggest this is ready to run. A stop level at $120 would suggest this needs more time to consolidate.
