It was a big week for your Momentum Trader Alert portfolio.

In Friday morning’s Special Alert, I advised you to raise your stop prices in five different Momentum Trader Alert positions.

By the end of the day, you stopped out of Lam Research Corporation (LRCX) at $145.95 for a 15.04% gain.

You also stopped out of Teradyne, Inc. (TER) at $35.35 for a 10.06% gain.

This week’s Momentum Trader Alert’s algorithms identified United Technologies Corporation (UTX). Founded in 1934 and headquartered in Farmington, Connecticut, UTX provides a broad range of high technology products and services including Pratt & Whitney aircraft engines; Carrier heating and air conditioning; Otis elevators; and Sikorsky helicopters.
