Good Morning Stock Fans!
Today's Play of The Day is: International FiberCom (NASDAQ:IFCI)
International FiberCom is a leading provider of a wide range of engineering, development and maintenance services for fiber optic, broadband networks, public telephone networks, local and wide area networks, and specialized wireless applications. With a number of recent strategic acquisitions that complement and enhance existing services and products, International FiberCom has positioned itself as a "one-stop shop" for the telecom and cable TV industries.
Yesterday, IFCI announced a major contract of more then 23 million that will add to its bottom line considerably in 2000. The stock upon that news gapped up yesterday opening at $17.6250 above it close on Monday of 15.8750 by $1.75. On massive volume late in the day the stock broke out of resistance it had created at $19.00, and went as high as $22.1250 before profit takers came in. The stock closed regular market hours at $20.3750 yesterday. it then traded up to as high as 21.8750 in after hours trading.
Today, the CEO of IFCI is out saying he is extremely confident that the new contracts that IFCI have been awarded of late will add to IFCI bottom line in a major way in 2000 as he is looking for a profit of 48 cents. The stock is trading up today in pre market at 21.75 currently. We like the stock to retrace back down to 20.43750 just under yesterday's pre breakout high. We see buyers come back into the stock at that point, and will be looking to take up our position in IFCI at that price level. We like the stock to then add on massive volume, and interest as investors chase the stock to north of $22.93750 today.
As a daytrade this stock sets up well to make a solid run at 23.00 today. As a shorter-term swing trade into the rest of the week we like this stock to trade as high as $26.00. We will look to play the stock in each range as the volume as it always does will be the most important indicator in its increase in share value. 4 million shares trading today should take this stock to at least $23.00

BONUS PLAY #2: Premiere Technologies (NASDAQ:PTEK)
Premiere Technologies (NASDAQ:PTEK) has a minority interest in one of today's BONUS PLAY's Heatlheon (NASDAQ:HLTH). PTEK increased its volume yesterday as it traded more then 2 million shares and went up more then $1.00. It managed to hold all the gains as it surged into the close and made its way back to the double digit area in its stock price to close at $10.00. With HLTH probably staying hot today. We are looking for PTEK to open higher then pull back and test the 9.6250 area. We like sellers to be out of the stock by then and see PTEK then making its way back to $10.00. We then look for the stock to break $11.00 and on increased volume could possibly see 12.00 over the next 2 trading days. We are going to play the range on this play as profit takers should come in that held over night allowing a nice downtrend on less volume. We then will take our position as sellers exit and buyers come in.
KEY INDICATORS: PTEK
Buy Area:$ 9.6250-$9.75
