Beat Stocks To Buy Now

Astrazeneca Shares

stock AZN shares are just below a buy point of 67.50 from a double bottom. It has found support at both its 50-day moving average and its 200-day moving average.

The base started as the stock hit a high of 71.70 after gaining 14% since its previous break in March.

The relative strength line appears to be receding after a recent drop. That is an encouraging sign.

The UK-based company makes a range of treatments including a Covid vaccine and cancer drugs Tagrisso, Imfinzi and Lynparza.

Autonation Stock

AN shares are currently in a nine-month consolidation pattern with an official buy point of 133.58, according to MarketSmith analysis.

On August 16, AutoNation shares topped early innings near 125-126 on heavy volume, briefly topping the official buy point before closing just below that key level. Stocks have fallen back to just above the 125 mark.

Investors May Now Want To Focus On The Official Buy Point.

Strong overall performance is reflected in an IBD composite rating of 91. Earnings are the strongest, with earnings per share increasing an average of 93% over the last three quarters.

Showcasing IBD 50, AutoNation has more than 300 sites across the republic. It sells novel and used cars along with a business segment for auto parts and services.

AutoNation, lengthways with Group 1 Automotive (GPI) and Penske (PAG), capitalized on the vehicle shortage and posted strong profits for the first half of 2022.

Auto retail stocks have also delivered aggressive growth on favorable industry dynamics, with vehicle demand still far ahead of supply as the pandemic disruption drags on.

Despite strong earnings growth, auto retail stocks insulated the broader market for most of early 2021 and early 2022. The industry began to improve in April and remained relatively flat, while the S&P 500 fell almost 20% from April 1 to mid-June.

AutoNation’s earnings rose 34% year over year, ending a five-quarter streak of triple-digit growth but with an outperforming outlook. Revenue fell 2% to $6.87 billion and was slightly lower.

AN has just announced plans to expand its used car business. While AN reported that new vehicle sales fell 14% in the second quarter, used vehicle sales rose 13%.

A weaker economy and a likely rise in new car production could weigh on used car prices.

The company will now open its twelfth AutoNation USA store, which will focus primarily on buying and selling used vehicles. The company aims to have more than 130 AutoNation USA stores operational by the end of 2026.

Costco Stock

COST is trading just underneath a cup with a handle buy point of 552.81. This offers an early entry opportunity relative to its April all-time high of 612.27.


A nightmare is the line of relative strength of stocks. But he’s fighting back after slipping lately. Costco remains in the top 8% of stocks in terms of value presentation over the past 12 months.


It is also outside of the main 50 and 200 day moving averages. The stock has earned a place on the prestigious IBD Leaderboard list of the best stocks.
