5 Rocket Stocks for the Snapback Rally
And so the firm has been doing just that. One of the biggest catalysts for new properties has been the roll-outs of newer hotel concepts such as Aloft, which provide a way for Starwood to add new rooms to its business without having to resort to less attractive hotel markets to do so.

The analyst sentiment in this stock looks attractive this week. Under Armour
If you're looking for exposure to a cheap stock, look again. Priced at 52 times earnings, shares of Under Armour(UA) are pricey by almost any standard. But don't think that means that there isn't potential for serious upside in shares in 2012.
Under Armour is a performance sports apparel and accessory brand that's taken the industry by storm in the past decade and change. The firm has grown to take a sizable share of the market from standard bearer Nike(NKE) , and establish its interlocked "UA" logo as one of the most popular and recognizable icons in sports. That should help the firm continue to demand premium pricing (and bigger margins) from consumers.
