Today we focus on Global Leaders — with a technical analysis angle. These are some of the best global stocks traded in the U.S.

4 Hot Stocks To Consider

Sibanye Stillwater (SBSW) is about 1% away from a 20.50 buy point of a seven-week consolidation, according to MarketSmith chart analysis. Shares briefly cleared the entry last week before pulling back with the broader market this week.

The base is late stage — not surprising, given Sibanye’s 480% run from its March 2020 lows. But keep in mind that later-stage bases can be more prone to failure than earlier patterns.

IBD Stock Checkup assigns the South Africa-based precious metals miner a 92 Composite Rating, which gives investors a quick way to gauge a stock’s key growth traits. That puts it at the top of the 72-stock gold miners group. A 78 Earnings Per Share Rating, part of the overall composite score, is lower than the 90 minimum of the best growth stocks.

But a 91 Relative Strength Rating means Sibanye is among hot stocks overall — it’s beating 91% of all other stocks. And its relative strength line, which compares a stock’s performance to the S&P 500, is rising and close to its highs.

Tech Gear Leader

Logitech (LOGI) is in potential buy range from a 109.73 entry of a cup with handle, as seen on a daily chart. The buy zone tops out at 115.22. On a weekly chart, MarketSmith shows a 10-week cup base with a 120.34 buy point. Shares are trading less than 6% away from that pivotal entry point.

Note: The cup base is late stage. Logitech stock rallied 283% from its March 2020 low to its February high.

The Switzerland-based maker of computer mice, keyboards and other gear scores a highest possible 99 Composite Rating. That leads the 14-stock computer hardware peripherals group, which includes Dell Technologies (DELL) and HP Inc. (HPQ). A 99 EPS Rating is also best in the group; its 91 RS Rating is eighth.

U.K.-based Rio Tinto (RIO) is building the right side of a nine-week cup base with an 88.83 buy point. The base is second stage, which means Rio could have plenty of room to run after a breakout.

A 99 composite tops the 33-stock metal ores mining group, as does a 95 EPS Rating. Rio’s 76 RS Rating could use some improvement. A move to new highs by its relative strength line at or ahead of a potential breakout would be a bullish sign.

Biotech’s Best?

Horizon Therapeutics (HZNP) is working on the right side of an eight-week consolidation with a 96.64 buy point. It’s about 4% below the entry. The base is late stage, so that’s a possible risk to consider. On a bullish note, most of the consolidation has formed above the 10-week moving average.

The Ireland-based drug developer’s 96 Composite Rating is best in the vast 683-stock biotech group, which includes Amgen (AMGN) and Biogen (BIIB).

An 89 EPS Rating places it among the group’s hot stocks. Horizon notched triple-digit profit gains in the third and fourth quarters of 2020, on sales growth of 90% or better. The biotech reports Q1 results in about two weeks.

Horizon holds a half size position in Leaderboard.
