March is winding down, and that means the end of the first quarter of 2019. The Q4 earnings season has all but wrapped up. So it's time to prepare for to the second quarter and take a look at some stocks on the rise now.Identifying those stocks is easier said than done though, particularly in this environment. The bulls are determined to hold onto the hard-won gains reaped since the late-December low, but it's becoming more and more difficult. The more the market goes up, the less the buyers are interested in buying in, and trading volume wanes.Nevertheless, there are some stocks on the rise and positioned to continue rallying into the foreseeable future. These names are a trader's best bet at what's often a modestly bullish time of year for the market.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 5 Cloud Stocks to Help Your Portfolio Fly With that as the backdrop, here's a rundown of the best stocks to buy as we enter Q2. Nielsen Holdings (NLSN)Yes, this is the same Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN) that measures viewership of television shows. It's more than that, however, the company also measures the efficacy of online and offline marketing campaigns.The past couple of years have been tough for shareholders. NLSN stock fell from a 2016 high near $56 to a mid-2018 low around $21. But the past few months have been progressive. Nielsen shares have recently broken through their 200-day moving average, and bullish crosses of other key moving-average lines are on the radar. Keep in mind, however, that we've seen this headfake before.This movement, along with the stock's forward P/E of 14.6 and the fact that it's going to begin quantifying data regarding Canada's cannabis industry, suddenly makes NLSN an interesting prospect. Amazon.com (AMZN)Like most other names, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) stock was up-ended during Q4 of 2018. Unlike most other stocks, however, AMZN didn't produce the rip-roaring rally most other names did in January and February.That's changed this month. Despite the slow start to its rebound, AMZN stock is now on the rise. Shares just fought their way back above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, but have plenty more room to make gains.There's also plenty of bullish fodder, including the company's planned expansion of its grocery business and the ongoing growth of Amazon Web Services. * 4 Unexpected Trade War Stocks That Will Benefit From an End to Tariffs Fun fact: AMZN stock averages a 14% gain during the second calendar quarter of the year. TreeHouse Foods (THS)This stock is exactly a household name, but many households are regular users of its products without even realizing it. TreeHouse Foods (NYSE:THS) makes a variety of private-label foods sold by grocers and restaurants.TreeHouse Foods hasn't exactly been firing on all cylinders lately. The current quarter's per-share profits are projected to fall -- as are full-year sales.The company's fiscal results are poised to begin improving in the foreseeable future though, fueled by an industry-wide movement that puts even more focus on so-called 'house brands' of food and condiments. That's why investors have been willing to bid THS stock up nearly 65% since 2018's lows. And there's still a lot of opportunity for more gains thanks to THS stock's 2016/2017 meltdown. Align Technology (ALGN)Align Technology (NASDAQ:ALGN) is the company behind Invisalign's clear braces. Align has been successful for years, but found a sweet spot between price, demand and marketing beginning in 2016. From the end of 2015 to the middle of last year, ALGN stock gained more than 500%. * 7 Invincible Stocks Leading The Bull Market Higher That rally unraveled last year, with Align shares being chopped in half in the face of legal woes surrounding certain patents on its technology… a matter that's still not been firmly decided. Investors are regaining confidence in the company's prospects though. Up more than 40% above its early January low, Align is one of a handful of stocks on the rise moving into Q2. Century Aluminum (CENX)Despite respectable economic growth for the past year and a half, aluminum prices have been falling. Indeed, over the past twelve months, the price of aluminum is down roughly 13%, and still in position to edge lower.It's taken a toll on most of the industry's stocks, including Century Aluminum (NASDAQ:CENX). But, CENX may be on the verge of a turnaround. It's just crossed above several key moving averages, and those moving average lines have just dished out bullish crosses of their own.It also helps to know that Century Aluminum shares, like aluminum prices, have been reliably cyclical. The current shift out of a downtrend and testing the waters of an uptrend looks an awful lot like the rebounds we saw in 2016 and 2013. Pentair (PNR)London-based Pentair (NYSE:PNR) makes a variety of 'smart water' solutions, ranging from pumps to filters to agricultural applications.It's not a high-growth business, but it is a reliably profitable business, even if those profits can be a bit uneven at times. * 7 Financial Stocks to Invest In Today Butt his year should be a decent one. Revenue is projected to improve by 5.3%, and per-shares profits are expected to reach $2.55 -- up from last year's $2.35. That progress has translated into new bullishness for PNR shares too. After a hard reversal near the end of 2018, Pentair stock is finally toying with highs above its technical ceiling at $43.60. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG)Energy stocks are inherently volatile, even more so in the current environment. But after tumbling in Q4 alongside falling crude prices, they're looking like good bets again.Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE:COG) is shaping up to one of the top prospects from the energy sector. Investors have to zoom out to a weekly chart to fully appreciate it, but shares have slowly shifted out of a downtrend and into an uptrend over the course of the past several months. One more good gain could complete the breakout effort, which has pushed COG stock past all key moving averages.The kicker: COG averages a Q2 gain of 7.4%. Allergan (AGN)Allergan (NYSE:AGN) has been a poor performer since peaking in the middle of 2015. In fact, AGN stock is down more than 50% from that high, and hit a new 52-week low in December. It's been a challenging name to own, to say the least. * 5 Dow Jones Stocks Coming to Life Yet, a shocking number of hedge funds and institutional investors now own a beaten-down Allergan. As Sanford C. Bernstein's pharmaceutical analyst Ronny Gal explained last month, Allergan has become a very popular holding, partially because it has buyout potential and partially because the company is just doing well. Additionally, Gal is excited about the value creation that could stem from an increasingly likely breakup of Allergan's different arms. Molson Coors Brewing (TAP)Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE:TAP) has been in a downtrend since the middle of 2016 and reached new multi-year lows in December of last year. TAP stock has been toying with a reversal since October though -- an effort marked by a lot of volatility and several big countermoves. The bulls are testing the waters, even if they're not making a lot of not progress. But one more good 'umph' could get -- and keep -- TAP shares above key moving averages and break through the technical ceiling that's formed near $67.00.The calendar is working in TAP stock's favor as well. Molson Coors shares gain an average of 3% during Q2, but keep on moving through September to log an and additional average gain of about 4% during Q3. Old Republic International (ORI)Finally, add Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI) to your list stocks on the rise as the Q2 begins.Like most insurance stocks, ORI has had its recent ups and downs. Unlike most of its peers though, Old Republic is making reliable net progress, taking two steps forward for every one step back. ORI has been weak since September, but appears to be pushing off of a support line that extends all the way back to early 2015. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them Analysts agree there are higher highs in store. Although ORI is not widely followed by professionals, the ones that do keep tabs on it collectively say the stock's worth $24 per share, which would put it near the upper boundary of the trading range that's been in place since 2015.As of this writing, James Brumley held a long position in Treehouse Foods and Nielsen Holdings .

Investors came back in a much better mood to start the new week than they ended the previous week in. The S&P 500 ended yesterday up 1.47%, carrying the index back above its pivotal 200-day moving average line.General Electric (NYSE:GE) did a great deal of the heavy-lifting, gaining 3.3% after Citigroup suggested the worst of its pain was in the past. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) actually logged a bigger gain though, advancing 4.3% thanks to a convergence of bullish ideas that had been brewing up a buying spree for some time.When all was said and done, however, Monday's bullish volume was uncomfortably low, and there were more decliners than a marketwide 1.47% gain might normally leave behind.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBoeing (NYSE:BA) was one of those big losers, stumbling 5.3% after a 737 was involved in a crash -- the second such multi-fatality crash involving the same, relatively new Boeing plane within just a few months. Investors are fearing a design flaw is the culprit, which could prove catastrophic.Headed into Tuesday's trading, stock charts of NiSource (NYSE:NI), Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN) and PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM) are of the most interest. Here's why, and what to look for next. Nielsen Holdings (NLSN)With nothing more than a quick glance, Nielsen Holdings looks like little more than a volatile mess. There's been no net progress since September of last year, and no particular reason to expect that to change. * 7 Top Stocks to Buy From Goldman Sachs' Secret Portfolio Slowly but surely over the course of the past several weeks though, the proverbial wheels have been turning. The bulls are inching closer to a breakout thrust, and one more good day could get NLSN over a key hump. Click to Enlarge• The proverbial Mason-Dixon line is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. Shares briefly popped above that line last week, but Monday's renewed effort to move above it could be the one that sticks.• Nielsen is moving into the attempt in good condition. Since the beginning of February we've seen multiple instances of support at the purple 50-day moving average line. It's acting as a pushoff point.• This effort to cleanly break above 200-day moving average line has the same key flaw the last few failed attempts had -- a lack of volume. But if Nielsen can continue to work its way higher, it's likely to gather more volume on the way up. PulteGroup (PHM)Roughly a week ago, PulteGroup was thrust into the trading spotlight as a potential break candidate. It was being squeezed into the tip of a converging wedge, but simultaneously was finding support more than it was finding resistance at its key moving average lines.Yesterday it got over that hump. Though there's one more hurdle to clear, the technical undertow has turned verifiably bullish. Click to Enlarge • The hump in question is the upper boundary of the converging wedge pattern plotted with yellow dashed lines on both stock charts.• Although it has been missing over the last few days, the volume trend has been leaning bullishly for the past several weeks.• As of Monday, the purple 50-day moving average line has crossed back above the white 200-day moving average line … a so-called "golden cross" that's supposed to indicate a confirmed bullish trend.• The last line in the sand is $28.22, plotted with a red dashed line on the daily chart. PHM has peaked there three times since late January. NiSource (NI)Finally, a month ago NiSource was featured as -- like Pulte -- a breakout candidate close to be squeezed out of a pair of converging support and resistance lines. Unlike PHM, NiSource's also had a horizontal ceiling it was contending with. Either way, the steam managed to build long enough to push NI above one resistance level, and put the stock within reach of the other. One or two more good days could do the trick, but they may not take shape straight away. Click to Enlarge • The daily chart plots the horizontal resistance with a dashed blue line. It had been a problem area, but Monday's strength carried the stock past that level.• Zooming out to the weekly chart of NiSource we can see there's also an ascending wedge pattern in place, framed by yellow dashed lines. The upper boundary here is not broken yet, but if it is, a couple years' worth of pent-up trading action could be unleashed.• Though a compelling setup, NI shares are technically overbought right now. A small pullback may be in the cards before the stock can blast past all of its technical resistance.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Teetering on the edge of a full-blown pullback as of Thursday, the bulls finally decided to make a stand. Friday's 0.69% advance from the S&P 500 may not have undeniably averted a disaster, but it certainly let stocks end the week on a high note.Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) did most of the heavy lifting, up nearly 2% in response to news that it was planning to open dozens of grocery stores in the near future … an announcement that ultimately shook shares of at least one competitor out of a budding uptrend. Smaller Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK) was actually a bigger winner, however, rallying close to 6% as investors increasingly believe its turnaround effort is taking hold.The market's gain overcame the dead weight Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) brought to the table. Shares of the electric car company fell almost 8% in response to concerns that Tesla can't actually afford to make the $35,000 Model 3 it touted on Thursday.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsNone of those names are especially well suited for trading as this week gets going, though. Rather, it's the stock charts of Fastenal Company (NASDAQ:FAST), Nielsen Holdings (NYSE:NLSN) and Kroger (NYSE:KR) that appear to be entering well-developed trends. Kroger (KR)Over the course of the past several months, we've watched Kroger shares bounce around inside of, and sometimes outside of, a narrowing trading range. Since December, the stock has spent more time below the floor of that range than above it, although it never really suffered that "death blow." On Friday, however, the 4.5% stumble in response to news of Amazon's grocery ambitions broke several key support lines. * 7 March Madness Stocks to Consider for the Big Dance There's one more chance to salvage it, but the bulls are going to have to work a little magic to keep several months' worth of indecision from becoming unleashed in a hurry. Click to Enlarge • The shape and placement of Friday's bar is the key. Kroger shares started above them all, but in one fell swoop the stock broke back under all three key moving average lines as well as the lower edge of the rising wedge, framed with yellow lines on both stock charts.• The weekly chart puts things in perspective. Last year's momentum has been slipping for a while now.• The line in the sand is around $26.65, plotted with a red dashed line on both stock charts. That's where Kroger found a bottom in October and again in December. That floor may not survive a third test. Fastenal Company (FAST)Fastenal Company is another name that's made its way onto our radar several times in recent weeks, largely for the same reason as Kroger. That is, like KR, FAST shares have been bouncing around -- rather reliably -- within a wide trading range since 2016.The recent bump into the upper boundary of that range has, as of Friday, started to become true trouble for the stock. Click to Enlarge • There are actually two support lines in play here. The near-term minor one is plotted in yellow, and tagged all the key lows since the middle of last year. The ultimate floor, however, is plotted with a white dashed line on the weekly chart. It's paired up with the uppermost ceiling at the top of both stock charts.• That same weekly chart indicates Fastenal shares are stochastically overbought … a condition that tends to coincide with encounters of the upper edge of the trading range, and a condition that's usually quickly ended with some significant selling.• Still, although clearly vulnerable to more downside, this setup would be much stronger if the market helped, and if FAST can log at least one more lower close. Nielsen Holdings (NLSN)Finally, it's still miles away from securing its place in a new uptrend. But, Nielsen Holdings has moved well enough to that condition to justify putting it on your radar now.Just know that odds are good there will still be a time in the very foreseeable future that it doesn't feel like NLSN has snapped out of the bearish funk that's dragged it lower for the past couple of years. Click to Enlarge • The "notice" is this past week's push up and off the purple 50-day moving average line and, briefly anyway, back above the white 200-day moving average line. It's the best attack on the long-term moving average line we've seen in months, underscored by strong volume.• The weekly chart shows previous attempts to move above the 200-day average have petered out. This one is different, though, in the sense that it's starting after what looks like a capitulation in July.• Bear in mind a reversal out of a long-term downtrend like this one is more of a process and less of an event. It's most likely that Nielsen will wiggle its way into an uptrend rather than make a clean "V."As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
