ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (ACAD) had quite a day on Wednesday after getting crushed on a secondary all the way down under 17. It then gapped up and opened 19.10 red to 20.67, and closed up 3.53, or 21%, to 20.53, on 10 million shares. That was an impressive day for this stock, closing not only above resistance and lateral price resistance, but 50-day moving average as well. This may very well run to 23. If it gets through the 23 1/2 area, 26-7 is the next target.
American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC), one of our swing trades, after the falling wedge held the moving averages and recent prior highs with a snapback. It gained another 40 cents, or 4.45%, to 9.39, on 321,938 shares traded on Wednesday. Watch for a move to take out 9.90, and then it has to move up to 11, and 12 1/4.
Sunrun Inc. (RUN), another solar, broke out, followed through, then it had an up-day on Wednesday, advancing another 42 cents, or 3%, to 14.53, on 2.9 million shares. It ran up to resistance and may try to run up to the 15 1/2-16 1/2 zone. Once it gets through that, it will be on its way to a much bigger move. If it gets through 17, you may see 20-24 on this one.
SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (SEDG) looks to me like the declining topsline may have been taken out. On Wednesday, it popped 3.02, or 7.63%, to 42.61, on 900,325 shares traded. That’s decent volume for this stock. It’s right up against resistance at 40 3/4. Any movement across here and it could run to 49-51, and possibly, at some point, the 57 range again. For now, though, targets are 49-50, and then the high 50’s.
