Our new momentum picks, a golden opportunity, best cash Isas and Raven Russia

Our portfolio of momentum shares - all picked on the basis of their recent strong performance indicating solid momentum going forward - has had a cracking start to the year. It's raced ahead by more than 14 per cent over the last three months compared with 9 per cent for the FTSE 100. Now it's time to replenish the portfolio so once again Algy Hall has selected 10 momentum stocks based on their performance over the last three months. The new choices reflect many of the major themes that have recently been playing out, including positive developments in Europe and signs of recovery in the US. A gain of 14 per cent over a matter of weeks is pretty good, but here's something else that might leave you kicking yourself if you missed our original buy tip: since we recommended snapping up shares in this particular company the share price has rocketed over 500 per cent. And the story's not over yet - we still think the shares are worth buying and Martin Li explains exactly why that is in his report on the company. Elsewhere we look at how to secure the best rates on your cash Isa, along with details of the top deals, while Stephen Wilmot looks at how Raven Russia has matured into an attractive investment.
