Best Performing US Stocks for the First Quarter of 2011

The stocks in the table below are the best performing NASDAQ stocks for the first quarter of 2011. They are not necessarily good stocks to invest in. Some may have been the subject of takeover bids. Some may have shot up on hype and hot air. But they are worth taking a look at.

Note that the 3 and 5 year % Change indicated in the table is cumulative change.  The stocks worth taking a closer look at are the ones that have a continuously growing % change over the various time periods. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, for example. These are stocks that likely have steadily growing revenues and earnings and likely to fit our investment criteria.
