Of the number of health care stocks that have been recent Stock Trends picks, Vivus Inc.(NASDAQ:VVUS) stayed firm in the market volatility. VVUS first came to our attention in the January 11 Picks of the Week when it closed at $5.61. It had a Stock Trends Bullish Crossover last week. Today it hit a high of $6.25 before closing at $6.18. The eclipse of the stock's previous high attained last August could help propel VVUS in a very difficult stock market. It appears there will be no dysfunction in this stock, recession or not.
