Top Breakout Stocks
These stocks performed excellently last week, and they could carry the momentum into this week.

The company, which is known for designing, manufacturing, operating, and servicing Direct Fuel Cell power plants, has seen its stock lead the market charge. It also provides energy services in the natural gas and biogas sectors.
The surge in the share price could be due to FuelCell starting commercial operations in Tulare, California’s wastewater treatment facility. The 2.8-megawatt project is the combination of years of innovation on how to use SureSource power plants to generate electricity with on-site renewable fuels.
Inpixon is an indoor data company known for capturing, interpreting, and giving context to indoor data. The data it generates can be translated into actionable intelligence.
