MKSI should start catching up through the year. It is the single most undervalued and growing stock in the 8,000 stock research I do on Vector Vest. I will post this. When you see the RV (relative value) and RT (relative timing) below you can see why. It is a scale from 0-2. They consider anything above 1 good. The final # VST includes so much information I couldn't post it all. Needless to say this is why MKSI is trading at a new high. It broke through and closed above $25 yesterday. I think low to mid 30's by years end would put in more in line. My #2 pick is SCHN. They are in the metals business. Growing faster, but now as much of a value as MKSI though.....We'll see what the market does. The growth and value has to be recognized by the trading community. That is why I like to see volume to be above average on upward moves. Same thought pattern as anybody who follows the markets closely. We'll see if the buyers keep coming. Fear and greed.
