Today's issue of IBD (March 19) has a good Investor's Corner article, "Don't Fear Fishing for Stocks in Areas Considered 'Fished Out'." It has a weekly diagram of Monster Beverage (MNST), which broke out from a flat base the week of Aug. 11, 14, then broke out from another stage base the weeks of Nov. 27 and Oct. 3. It has risen another 20%+ since that time. The point is well taken, but why not have them on the radar before the jump?

I also looked at the weekly charts of STMP and INFN today, both of broke out from bases around the same time that MNST did, then moved higher. My question is: is there an easy way to find stocks making long and relatively flat bases to put on research/watch lists in anticipation of potential break outs to new highs? Is there a service that provides this? Thanks.

Last year I lucked out and caught WLDN just after a break out.
