The Play Of The Day

Good Morning Stock Fans!
Today's Play of The Day is: Auspex Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq NM:ASPX)
Auspex Systems, Inc. develops, manufactures, distributes and supports a line of multi-protocol Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices also referred to as network file servers that include specialized software for storing, serving and managing network data. The Company's new NAS products are designed to store, manage and deliver data to network clients with a continual focus on reliability, scalability, UNIX/Windows NT file sharing and price/performance. The Company also offers two software options that can be purchased with the NS200 NAS product. The first, DataGuard, allows users to continuously access data in the event of a disruption associated with the host operating system. The second product, NetServices 2.0, delivers seamless file sharing between UNIX and Windows NT clients in order to facilitate collaboration and reduce the total cost of ownership relative to replicating data on separate UNIX and Windows NT servers.
Stock Fans! Many rumors floating around about ASPX. Some saying it will be bought out at $30 a share, others stating that with their new management in place they will add value to the company and the stock price will rocket. Either way, ASPX has never traded 4 million + shares like it did yesterday. Options are flying off the shelf too. This is a pure speculation play but can pay off quite nicely. Choose your entry carefully and don't chase this one. Yesterday's chart showed steady buying and institutions own 61% of this one. Stock is being gathered up for something big we think.
KEY INDICATORS: APSX
Buy Area: $17-18
Sell Stop: $15.25
TARGET: $20+ today

Stock Fans, this is one of my favorite chart patterns for recent IPO's. This chart is why I don't like to buy IPO's the first day and hold! ONVI is in its 11th day of trading. It has a one year, revenue growth rate of 1572.6%. Timing entries on IPO's are trickier because of there relative short charting cycle. So I will look to take a 1/2 position and add either 10% above or below my entry!
KEY INDICATORS: ONVI
Buy Area:$45.75 to $ $46.50
TARGET: $$51.15 to $53.475
Time Frame: 2 to 7 days

Stock Fans, did you see the volume on this yesterday? This puppy is under accumulation big time. This has a high RSI of 87 and a accumulation rating of "A" as of 3/9/00. I expect this to gap so entry will be a little tricky. I am going to day-swing trade this. Meaning I will close my position on Monday.
