New to this list is Family Dollar (FDO) and 1st Source (SRCE).

There are several stocks that are pulling back. Bard CR (BCR) fell 6% today after two downgrades and Wal-Mart (WMT) which has been retracing back to the 50-day moving average line. We'll have to see how these names perform going forward. - Art
