Virtu Financial (VIRT) and Flotek (FTK) are Aggressive Growth Stocks

Brian Bolan
Northern Trust (NTRS) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.

Brian Bolan, the aggressive growth stock strategist at Zacks Investment Research takes a look at two new names to put on your aggressive growth stock radar.  First is Virtu Financial VIRT which is a high frequency trading firm.  Brian believes that this name will tell very well given the recent volatility in the market.  He also likes the recent beats and is overlooking the growth style score that should be much higher given the posted revenue growth.  The next name, Flotek FTK helps the pipelines and with crude prices firming up, investors should take a look at this name. FTK has an A for growth, which is more along the lines of what Brian looks for.  He also notes that the risk reward set up is very appealing.
