The Play Of The Day

Stock Fans! I will be in and out of the trading room today as I have some personal business to attend to. The other members of our Pro Trading TEAM will be there to help today while I am gone.

Today's Play of The Day is: Shop at Home, INC. (NASDAQ:SATH)

Shop At Home, Inc.(NASDAQ:SATH) sells specialty consumer products, primarily collectibles, through interactive electronic media including broadcast, cable and satellite television and, increasingly, over the Internet. Shop At Home Network reaches over 56 million unique cable and satellite households and is the Nation's 15th largest television broadcaster with stations in San Francisco, Boston, Houston, Cleveland, Raleigh and Bridgeport, which is licensed to the New York market.

Stock Fans! I remember back in Jan of 1999 less then 13 months ago when SATH a stock that not many had heard of was making its way into the mid 20's and creating a trading graph that looked a heck of a lot like the amazing graph that AMZN had created in its 1st year of trading. SATH began at just under $7.00 in December of 1998, but then on the prospects of launching the worlds first online and on TV auction site it would be a daytraders dream as over the next 2 months the stock would go as high as almost 40.00 as it saw huge volume as investors jumped in.

The stock however in mid March fell big as SATH missed its numbers and then into the NASDAQ Internet related sell off in August of 1999 SATH fell almost back to where it had come from more then 7 months prior.

However in mid September 1999, the extremely influential Internet analysts at (NYSE:MER) Henry Bloggett came out and put the likes of SATH in the same sentence as he did AMZN. With that SATH made a bit of a move but nothing to spectacular.

Well, its now coming into Feb, 2000 and SATH will again report numbers that are expected to be over the top up coming in early Feb 2000. SATH has been suspected of late to be a buy out target of some bigger higher end names. It sure would make sense to snap up this stock ahead of the crowd. It has its own TV cable station as well as a major well thought out Internet presence. It also has something else going for it. It has seen big numbers before and big volume on its stock. I think this stock is dying to break out as market makers have managed to keep it in a tight trading range thus far as they gather it up. It also has been heavily shorted since its fall of last year. It will not take much to do 2 things that should make those holding this stock long have big smiles put on its face. One it has seen big numbers before. If the paid that much before they will again. Number 2 it will not take much to get those holding it short to cover and get out of the way of what could very well be a run away SATH train into numbers coming in the next 15 days.
