After coming public in early November 1999 at about $9.00 a share ASDS shortly thereafter went to as high by Thanksgiving week 1999 to $31.00. The stock however upon reporting quarterly numbers missed last time. With that the stock was thrashed and crushed to go as low as 9.00 again on Jan 21, 2000 about where it began its publicly traded life back in November of 1999.
Since the bottoming out in last month ASDS has made a comeback and now made it way on moderate volume back up to that key area in its range where it has broke out in the past of 11.00 a share. Yesterday the stock traded only 162,000 shares slightly under its 30 day average but it did find $11.00 plus area. It will be reporting numbers again on Feb 23, 2000. Including today's trading that is 7 trading days away. It looks to be a good play at current levels as it has had buyers over 31.00 before and has little downside risk at current levels and should continue to make its way higher into earnings that should be in line coming 1 ones from tomorrow on Feb 23, 2000.
We will look to get in this stock at about 11.00 today. Hold it into next week and sell it ahead of earnings next week. Looking at its trading chart it could by that time find its way to $14.00 a share. That type of move from 11-14 sets up perfectly for what looks to be swing trade.
