50 Best Performing Stocks Year to Date

TweetThis
To flush out the more speculative fry on this list (although Rare Element made it despite zilch in revenues and I believe 2 employees)  I've put these filters on
  1. Market cap >$300M
  2. Average trading volume >200K
  3. Stock price >$10
(screen at Finviz.com)
    Here are the top 50 performers year to date; essentially 100% return was required to make the list.  Highlighted names we've owned or discussed.  Frankly as I look at this list, I am thrilled with stock selection in 2010 - however my weightings were not high enough.  The year should have been even better as we own a ton of these stocks for parts of their runs.  Blue shade are current holdings; green previous holdings.
