RISKY SHORT PLAY TODAY: Geoworks Crop (NASDAQ:GWRX)
- Geoworks Corp. said it plans to license its patented system that gives cell phones and other wireless devices Internet access, causing its shares to more than double.
The shares of Geoworks, which makes wireless server software and provides Internet services for cell-phone users, rose 16 9/16 to 31 9/16 in trading of 19.4 million, making it the eighth most- actively traded stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
Alameda, California-based Geoworks has a patent in the U.S. and Japan for a system known as wireless application protocol, which helps wireless telephones receive information from Web sites. Geoworks Chief Executive David Grannan said it's more like ``a handshake and negotiation process,'' meaning the phone interacts with the Web site to decide how much information it can display.
Geoworks said it's the first wireless-communications company to patent this process and other companies, such as Nokia Corp., Ericsson AB, will have to pay a minimum licensing fee of $20,000 to use it. In addition to that fee, some companies will be required to pay a 10 percent royalty for every product that uses Geoworks' patented system.
The news yesterday was extremely powerful. However the stock could not break $35.75, in heavy after hours trading yesterday. After being up more then 116%, in yesterdays trading it looks to take a rest today as it nears the $40.00 area.
We will look to take a postion short in the stock as profit takers should get out fast as it pull back and begins to find a trading range today.

LONG TERM HOLD: Chase Bank (NYSE:CMB)
This very well known bank reported astonishing earnings yesterday surprising all of its more then 20 different analysts that cover the stock. It seems the major reason for the incredible gains in it's latest earnings report was due to the low published fact that (NYSE:CMB) owns more then 8 billion in Internet startups and publicly traded companies. The companies number a staggering 500 total with 150 of them publicly traded no the NASDAQ or the NYSE Those numbers blow away the likes of what many fell is the leading Internet incubator.
The stock closed up on the news more then $3.00. It looks like a great, can't miss stock to add to ones long term portfolio today. The stock sure looks as if it is going get notice for its recent investing.
Buy Area: $75.00
TARGET 12 months $130.00
