Today, we list a pair of stocks that despite the incredible volatility in the market made some of the biggest moves higher over the past month, and we'll pair them with the ratings issued by our Motley Fool CAPS community. The higher each stock's rating, the greater CAPS members' faith in that company's ability to keep on beating the market.
A mighty temblor
Peet's Coffee agreed to be taken private by a German private-equity firm and is up 28% over the past month, though it's 45% higher from the low point hit just before the going-private news hit the wire. Chicago Bridge & Iron just announced its intention to by Shaw Group, which sent the latter's shares soaring 50% higher, GlaxoSmithKline is buying Human Genome Sciences (Nasdaq: HGSI ) , and Wellpoint is buying Amerigroup.
As is evident, it's a broad-based buying spree happening across all industries. Health care, industrials, consumer goods, and now our two featured winners, AuthenTec, in technology, and GeoEye, in aerospace and defense.
An authentic opportunity
