Diesel engine maker Cummins (CMI) has posted reasonably perfunctory performance year-to-date, climbing 11.75% since the calendar flipped over to January. But zoom out a bit more, and CMI’s rally from October looks a whole lot more impressive: Shares are up 38% since Oct. 11.
Now this stock looks well-positioned for another big leg higher.
Cummins is currently in the process of forming a long-term ascending triangle pattern, a price setup that’s formed by horizontal resistance above shares at $121 and uptrending support to the downside. Essentially, as CMI bounces in between those two technical levels, it’s been getting squeezed closer and closer to a breakout above that resistance price. When that breakout happens, we’ve got a buy signal for shares.
Over the course of this setup, the 200-day moving average has acted like a proxy for support. That’s where I’d recommend keeping a protective stop after the breakout.

While trucking manufacturing Cummins (NYSE: CMI) is hardly a sexy stock, fleets of environmentally friendly trucks will be essential for many world economies to remain competitive as they slowly make their way out of the last recession. The price of Cummins’ stock has increased more than five and a half times in two years, jumping from $19.09 on March 9, 2009 to $109.62 at the end of the first quarter this year. As world economies begin to improve, transportation companies will begin replacing trucks so that they can move higher volumes of products more efficiently, and Cummins will benefit.
Top 5 Bank Companies To Buy Right Now: Cinemark Holdings Inc(CNK)
Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries engage in the motion picture exhibition business. As of June 30, 2011, it operated 436 theatres with 4,983 screens in 39 states of the United States, as well as in Brazil, Mexico, and 11 other Latin American countries. The company is headquartered in Plano, Texas.

Headquarters: Plano, Tex.
52-Week High: $23.87
52-Week Low: $17.54
Annual Sales: $2.3 bill.
Projected Earnings Growth: 12% annually over the next five years
The U.S. theater market may be relatively moribund, but growth prospects are good in emerging markets, where more and more people are entering the middle class and heading to the movies for entertainment. Cinemark is one of the primary beneficiaries. The company operates 461 multiplexes in the U.S., Mexico, Brazil and 11 other Latin American countries. Growth over the past five years has been blistering. In the first half of 2012, revenues jumped 11%, to $1.2 billion, and profits jumped 43%, to $93.7 million.
Cinemark probably can’t keep up that pace, but the growth is far from over. The company says it plans to open 11 more theaters in 2012 and has signed agreements to open 16 more in 2013 and beyond.
But what most impresses Osterweis’s Berler is that Cinemark is delivering solid results despite a strong dollar (which results in money earned overseas getting translated into fewer bucks). That speaks to the strength of its Latin American business. If the currency headwinds abate, Cinemark could clean up, Berler says.

Strong Outlook for Shares: Cinemark has seen improving revenue each year since 2007, connecting with movie-goers despite the recession. That’s in part because of growth and acquisitions — most recently it plans to buy a 12-screen cinema in South Carolina. The movie industry may not be booming right now, but CNK could cash in big t ime when box office receipts improve thanks to its growth over the last few years.
