It was a difficult and choppy market on Wednesday, and difficult going against the tide, but we were fairly successful. We'll take a look at some stocks of interest on both the long and short side.
Sanmina Corporation (SANM) had a very important breakout on Wednesday, up 2.64, or 14.46%, on 4 million shares. It got through key resistance, up to secondary resistance as well. The next target is 27.
SodaStream International Ltd. (SODA) popped on Wednesday, up 4.33, or 10.7%, on 8.5 million shares. It broke out across a double top, the declining topsline and 50 day. It was a good technical move. Let's see if it can fill the gap up around 49 1/2, and then the secondary target would be at 51 3/4.
Stocks on the Short Side....
ITT Educational Services Inc. (ESI), a swing trade on the short side, moved back up a little bit but without strong technicals. Wednesday it reversed down off of the channel. It looks like it's headed much lower, maybe even down toward the low 20's.
Home Inns & Hotels Management Inc. (HMIN), current swing trade put on Wednesday, has come down in four legs already, and may be due for a fifth leg down, which could take it down toward 25-26.
