Wednesday was a pretty interesting day on Wall Street. They were down early in the morning, it looked kind of dire, but then I saw the falling wedges, and thought we could rally back. It was a much sharper rally than I anticipated, and a darn good close one for the market. Let’s see if we get a follow-through on Thursday. In any case, here’s about a dozen interesting stocks that we’ll cover.
Movado Group, Inc. (MOV) had a nice day on Wednesday. It’s been in a rising channel for the last eight or nine months, and has gone from the 11 range, up to the high 20’s, reaching near 30 recently. It had a big down day to test the 50 and bounced, then it had another drop to retest a gap in mid-March, which held, and then a retest of the 50-day moving average, which was also a reversal, and the sharp spike up on Wednesday, which took it up 2.92 to 28.86, or 11%, on nearly a million shares. That’s the best volume we’ve seen on an up day in a couple years. The juxtaposition of a major trend line comes in at about 32 1/2, which is the next potential target for this stock.
PetSmart, Inc. (PETM) had a huge day on Wednesday, and broke up to a key multi-month resistance level with a breakaway gap on earnings. It gapped up big time and broke through the highs, closing at the upper end of the range, up a whopping 7.30 higher to 62.92, or 13.12%. It had a strong 7.5 million traded, which now sets this up for a run up at the trend line around the 66 area, which is the next target.
Rosetta Genomics, Ltd. (ROSG) has had a spectacular move in the last few days. Tuesday, it had an inside day on volume, and on Wednesday, it popped out of that to key resistance, looking for a quick test of 12.90, maybe 13, coming up short-term. It popped 3.61 to 11.24, or 51%, on 6.2 million shares. If it gets a follow-through, it could be explosive, into the mid-teens for starters.
SolarWinds, Inc. (SWI), which had been in a beautiful rising trend this year, and one of the Top 20 for the year, had a falling wedge in December, and then moved from the high 20’s up to the high 40’s, formed a flag for about two weeks, and on Wednesday, it reversed from 44.64 to 48, closing up 2.40 to 47.88, or 5.28%, on 939,700 shares. The volume wasn’t spectacular, but close to a million shares traded. The target for this one is in the 52-3 zone short-term.
