dividend increase 10 Market Breakout Stocks

Anthony Mirhaydari of InvestorPlace noted in a recent article that on Monday, the DJIA popped up and over two-month resistance near 16,500 and was challenging its 50-day moving average for the first time since December. Since last Friday, Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader notes that S&P 500 put in three days where it never traded within 0.5% of the prior day's close. That kind of buying pressure hasn't been seen in nearly 35 years of market history.

In anticipation of a breakout above the 50-day moving average, here are 10 stocks worth buying, according to Anthony: DD, AAPL, PFE, CX, UTX, FCX, GE, X, QCOM, and DIS. You can read his article as to why he likes each of those stocks.
