Top Stocks To Buy And Watch: Airbnb, Inspire

New IBD Leaderboard stock Airbnb soared more than 13% Wednesday, surging past a 121.50 buy point out of a cup with handle. While it’s extended from this entry, the breakaway gap places an alternative entry at 135 — and the stock is in buy range above that price. ABNB stock moved down 1.65% Friday morning.

Dexcom, Wingstop Eye Latest Buy Points

Dexcom shares dropped 2.4% Thursday, snapping a four-day win streak that saw them move sharply up the right side of a cup base with a 125.65 buy point. Shares could also form a handle, so keep an eye out for a potential lower entry. The stock dipped 0.5% Friday.

Backstory: On Feb. 9, Dexcom reported stronger-than-expected quarterly results. The beat comes as Dexcom’s newest continuous glucose monitor, or CGM, gains steam in the U.S. and Europe. These body-worn devices keep track of blood sugar in real time. The Food and Drug Administration cleared Dexcom’s new device, G7, last year.

Wingstop is squarely in buy range above a 169.04 buy point in a cup with handle after Thursday’s 0.9% fall in the wake of this week’s breakout move. WING stock was down 0.6% Friday.
