What a market it was on Tuesday. A lot of stocks we follow did well. I really had a tough time choosing a list,because there were at least 60-70 stocks I could tell you about here. Both shippers and marijuana stocks had a big run along with many others.
Finisar Corp. (FNSR) has been acting great all year, and then it spiked up on earnings, and kept on running. When it reached resistance, it had a 3-wave corrective pullback to the 50, and then broke back out again on Tuesday, up another 85 cents, or 2.76%, to 31.70, on 1.4 million shares traded. Short-term target is 35-37, and then low-to-mid 40’s intermediate-term.
LifeLock, Inc. (LOCK) has been doing well all year. I think this stock is a takeout, and there’s a couple companies chasing it, so I don’t know what the price is going to be. It got to a perfect 17 1/2 range, and then 20 1/2, and is still running. It was up 81 cents, or 4%, to 20.51, on 3.6 million shares traded on Tuesday. I’m looking for 23-25 as the next target.
Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (TSEM) has a beautiful long-term chart. Near-term, it has a rising pattern that tells me that it’s headed to the 23-25 zone, especially with Tuesday’s action where it popped through the resistance zone with a gap, up 95 cents, or 5.7%, to 17, on 2.4 million shares traded. That’s the second biggest volume on and up-day since Feb, 2015. With that kind of move, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a quick test of the 18-20-30 zone, and if it gets through there, then much higher.
Vuzix Corporation (VUZI) popped right through the 50 on Tuesday, up 65 cents, or 8.7%, to 8.05, on 528,900 shares traded. It did pull back from 8.25 to close at 8.05. Six of the last seven session this stock has been up, and I think it’s going to make a run at the 9 1/2-3/4 zone, and then see if there’s resistance that needs to be taken out.

Days to cover is the amount of short interest divided by the company's average daily share volume. In other words, the number of days required to close out all the short positions. A higher number means more potential fuel to a stock’s rally as shorts cover, and thus accelerate the move, when the stock’s price rises.
On Balance Volume (OBV), developed by Joe Granville, is a running summation of volume on up-days minus volume on down days. OBV rises when volume on up days outpaces volume on down days -- and falls when volume on down days is stronger. A rising OBV reflects positive volume pressure that can lead to higher prices. Conversely, falling OBV reflects negative volume pressure that can foreshadow lower prices.
