This IPO was incredibly hot yesterday, and its 4 million shares were extremely volatile. It opened over 200% higher then where it was priced with the first public trade at $66.50. The stock then made its way as high as $87.00 about 25 mins. into its public debut. It however turned and went as low as $55.50 before it found it way on more volume back up to $69.8750. Into the close on what was again less volume the stock fell off to hit its low of the day $55.50. It had buyers right there on close as again on more volume the stock found its way back to $60.00. It closed with over 5 million shares trading at $55.6250.

What does all this mean? Well, it could mean that the stock has found a low hitting it 2 times on the day at $55.50. What I like about it, is it had buyers at 55.50 both times it fell and it fell back on less volume. An IPO to create a spread of 55.50 to 87.00 is quite impressive. With the lack of issues going public today I like this stock at that $55.50 to $56.50. The technology it has is unique and is sure to continue to have its needs in the market place. Today we should see this stock take a shot back at that $87.00 area. As Long as we take advantage of our ability to use sell stops we should be in good shape getting into this one today right off the open. Remember to use sell stops on this one as it moves fast.

Buy Area: 1/2 on The OPEN TODAY
Sell Stop: $54.75
TARGET: $87.00
Time Frame: Today
Type of Trade: Range- Daytrade

Taking center stage in Friday's marketplace is (NASDAQ:ACOM), a pioneer in the online advertising and marketing industry, one of this year's hottest sectors. Being the only deal scheduled to price for Friday, new issue analysts foresee a huge run-up when the Goldman, Sachs-led issue lifts off for trading. At this point, Goldman along with co- managers Salomon Smith Barney and Hambrecht & Quist are set to price 5.9 million shares at a targeted price range of $22.00-$24.00 double the original talk of $10.00-$12.00 and trade on NASDAQ under the ticker (NASDAQ:ACOM)

We will be watching this one real close today in our LIVE TRADING ROOM. The predicted open should be a slightly north of $60.00. It should then fall back and if this one is available under 55.00 today we will look to take small position in it as it could very well be a $100.00 stock before long. Use cation on this one today.

IATV- it looked great on close all time high is $25.94.
NTRX- in the visual data field HOT SECTOR.
OPEN- same as NTRX
NPSK- another stock that is making a move closed near its high of the day
