There has always been a strong debate in the trading world between the technical traders and the fundamentalists. While the technical traders believe that charts and price history will always show the best view of what market participants are thinking at various price levels, fundamental traders would claim that valuation metrics are the only way to see clear pricing of stocks. No matter where you land, today we ask: why use only one?You likely have seen healthcare stocks tak...
UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH) is due to report earnings this Tuesday morning and if you've looked at the stock lately you might say a quick prayer for them. The stock has fallen off a cliff and while some find that attractive, clearly investors are heading for other outperforming areas of the market.

You would be looking at the Russell 2000 (NYSE: IWM) or, more specifically, the Russell 1000 (NYSE: IWB). The Russell 1000 ETF currently holds companies that on average get about 76% of their revenues from their US efforts. If the dollar continues to be strong, then you'd expect companies in this area to start reporting stronger revenues.

If you wanted to go on a stock picking spree then you could search for names that have much of their revenues (or even 100%) of their revenues here in the...
