In the second round of analysis, one other failed confirmation, KIN, a potential bull play off of the small-cap list.
For the others, there were no standouts other than the charts. I found three with charts I through to be sufficiently bullish: LEA, DOW and EXP.
LEA makes auto parts, and DOW and EXP make materials used by downstream companies to make their goods. In all three cases, we're looking at behind-the-scenes actors, not the stars from the consumer sector that stands in the spotlights on stage. These are workaday companies, not the glitterati.
All three are rated neutral by Zacks, so there's no help there in distinguishing among them. DOW has the highest average volume and is the only one to have options that are sufficiently liquid to meet my preferences.
So DOW it is. I'll post an analysis prior to the closing bell.
