Pac-12 Stock Report: Week 2

The defensive side of the NASPAQ is starting to shape up after some incredible performances this week. The Leader of the Pac - Defensive MVP this week goes to Mike Mohamed (MIKE) of the Cal Bears for his 14 tackles and an interception returned 41 yards for a touchdown. Mohamed is third in the conference in tackles with 21. He is the leader of the #1 total defense in the country with Cal yielding only 160 yards per game. Our bullish trend this week is wide receiver of the Washington Huskies - Jermaine Kearse, after putting on a show of 9 receptions and 179 yards in their victory over Syracuse. His stock is up 30% and he's tied for the highest wide receiver stock with Juron Criner of Arizona at $65 per share.

IPO's

We've had some IPO's pop up on our radar starting with Cliff Harris (CLIF) of the Oregon Ducks. We don't know how we missed his two touchdowns on special teams last week (Punt 1Punt 2), but he caught our analysts attention when he pick-sixed Tennessee's Matt Simms. His stock opens up at $25 and we see this as a bull market if you invest early enough.

Running Backs

The Oregon Ducks also had some of the top offensive highlights this week from their backfield. LaMichael James (LMJ) is back on the NASPAQ after his suspension and saw a 5% rise in his stock to $105. Kenjon Barner didn't replicate his four touchdowns of week one, but he had an 80 yard punt return for a touchdown. The Ducks quarterback - Darron Thomas (DARR) IPO'd at $25 dollars this week after managing his first road game like a veteran.

From our positional markets there were a couple outstanding defensive performances this week, most notably from Cal and Stanford. Their defenses were aggressive and applied pressure on the opponent's quarterbacks to force turnovers. Both of their defensive units saw some coaching turnover and replaced their defensive coordinators with experienced NFL coaches. Cal is currently #1 in total defense nationally, while Stanford is #6, but the Bears will face the #1 total offense in the country against Nevada this week so we see this as a bear market that has topped out.

Quarterbacks

Week 2 wasn't as kind to our quarterbacks as the first week with Matt Barkley, Andrew Luck, and Kevin Riley looking like they needed to shake off some rust. Jordan Wynn sat out this week with an injury, but the Utes were able to win with their backup. Tyler Hansen was sacked six times and committed four turnovers in the first Pac-12 game between Colorado and Cal. Jake Locker finally had some success and received an 11% bump in his stock to get back to triple digit stock prices.

  Wide Receivers

Robert Woods (WOOD) is the newest wide receiver on the NASPAQ, and even though he hasn't found pay dirt he's been consistent and at times looks like Barkley's first target. Jermaine Kearse (JERM) was the top wide receiver of the weekend with 9 catches for 179 yards and three touchdowns.
