Stock Fans! This stock has had some impressive moves over the last 30 days that have taken it up from stock stuck in a rather narrow trading range of 4.00 to yesterday as it went up on over 1 million shares of volume another 2.00 plus to get to $12.06 a share. The news that has done it has been 2 releases.

The first one came on Nov. 10, 1999. When Norsat International Inc. (NASDAQ:NSATF) announced the closing of an 8 million equity private placement which strengthened its balance sheet and provided working capital to support its growth initiatives in the satellite communications industry. This announcement was the one that primary took the stock from $4.00 to over $8.00 a share

The second came on Nov. 17, 1999. When Norsat International Inc. (NASDAQ:NSATF) announced the signing of an agreement with Korean wireless communications systems developer, Millitron Inc., to supply outdoor unit (ODU) prototypes for integration into subscriber Satellite Interactive Terminals (SITs) to be field tested as part of the Multimedia Interactive Ka-band Initiative being undertaken by Korea Telecom. That news was primarily responsible for taking the stock to the $9.00 plus area.

Stock Fans! What strikes me about this stock is a couple of things that make this small cap (Canadian) NASDAQ Stock so attractive is 2 huge areas right now of focus on stocks that we have see sky rocket in value. The first is Satellite Communications better known as DIRECT TV. Yes, that stock that has gone from 14.00 less then 14 months ago to an astounding 160 plus then split 3 for 1 and is right back up to $80.00 plus again! (NASDAQ:DISH) . The fact that this company supplies this high flyer parts for its business makes it in many way as valuable as (NASDAQ:DISH) the present move that shares of (NASDAQ:NSATF) are enjoying certainly proves that! The second is the over seas DSL market places such as Korea, and China. This are is huge and it has taken such stocks as (NASDAQ:KOREA) and (NASDAQ:CHINA) to mind boggling price evaluations and market caps.

The best way to explain this "Play" is it is not meant to be a momentum play this stock could very well 5 to 6 months from now be a 40 dolor stock. We will look to play the moves on half our normal buying amount as shorter term say 3 weeks. However this stock is worth the extra time that it may take to move it. The volume continues to be outstanding with impressive buying. This stock could just be starting its major run when it is already up in less the 30 days more then 200%. That in itself is good enough for me!

Buy Area: $11.1250-$11.93750
Sell Stop: $9.93750
TARGET: $17.50-$20.00
Time Frame: 3 days to 3 weeks
Type of Trade: Swing Trade
Longer term (6months) TARGET: $40.00-$50.00

Leapnet, Inc. (NASDAQ: LEAP), develops creative and technology solutions for the wired world by combining expertise in Internet advertising and development, global marketing communications and traditional brand advertising. More information on Leapnet (NASDAQ:LEAP) can be found at

Stock Fans! This stock out of virtually nowhere yesterday on absolutely NO NEWS that could be found by our staff. (NASDAQ:LEAP) literally exploded on huge volume out of a very narrow trading range of 5.00 to 6.00 a place it had been stuck at for over 30 days to move in yesterday's session almost as high as 8.00 on volume of over 2 million shares more then a 300% daily increase over its 30 day average volume of 487,000 shares.

(NASDAQ:LEAP) has seen moves like this before in the past however it has been unable to hold them the fact that the stock went up over 40% yesterday may indeed this time as it was on overwhelming volume take it to high levels. The way we will look to play this one today is to get in with 33% our *normal share amount

(*Example say you want to own 1,000 shares total of this stock. The you would buy about 330 shares off open then another 330 near the middle of buy are and the last 33% near the low end of the buy area or into strength on a move to the upside. Sure you are making 3 trades but do the math an average of 60.00 for trades is a lot better on a run then going all in at the top of the buy area. )

We will use the following KEY INDICATORS for this stock today. We may have a nice are here to take advantage of more upside moves. One thing we know is big volume "popularity" more often then not means something may be up with this company.

Buy Area: $6.3750- $6.93750
Sell Stop:$5.1250
TARGET: $8.1250-$9.50
Time Frame: 2 to 5 days
Type of Trade: Swing Trade

Stock Fans! Today we will look to take a smaller position in both (NASDAQ:CTIX) & (NASDAQ:DALN) right off the open today. Both stocks were crushed yesterday on huge volume as both received stern downgrades by brokers and hence investors for lack of a better word bailed at any cost to their shares. What sticks out here to me and makes sense to play off the open today is both these stocks were down more then 5 a piece at days end. Investors for the most part hate buying stocks that are what we call in trader slang as RED (down color for stock streaming quotes. They however on the other hand love chasing what we call the other side of the equation trader's slang GREEN stock (up color for stock streaming quotes).

What I want to point out here is both these stock have 3 to 5 point ranges in them at current levels. If they do what we call GO GREEN and up they only have to move 1/16 today off their open to do that. Watch the terminology here if the stocks then find 1 point gains watch investors come in and chase the stocks for further moves.
SPECIAL NOTE: BOTH STOCKS ARE TO BE AVOIDED LONGER TERM. However they may just be perfect today right off the open to make a quick 2 points and then move on. This is what we will attempt to do!

Buy Area: OFF OPEN
Sell Stop: 1.50 points below buy price
TARGET: 2 points Higher then The OPEN
Time Frame: 60 mins or less after buying


Have a great day,
