The Play Of The Day

Good Morning Stock Fans!
Today's Play of The Day is: TECHNICLONE Corporation (NASDAQ:TCLN)
TECHNICLONE Corporation (NASDAQ:TCLN) is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, commercialization and licensing of unique technologies for the treatment of cancer, primarily based on its "collateral targeting technologies." These technologies therapeutically target cell structures and cell types, rather than surface cancer cells, as a means to attack solid tumors, without causing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The Company has three collateral technologies: Cotara(TM), Vasopermeation Enhancement Agents (VEA), and Vascular Targeting Agents (VTA). The Company also has a direct tumor targeting agent called Oncolym(R) for the treatment of advanced non-Hodgkin's B-cell Lymphoma. Oncolym(R) has been licensed to Schering AG, Germany, which is now responsible for all existing and future Oncolym(R) clinical trial programs as well as marketing.
The stock looked very good coming back off opening lows yesterday of $9.50 to go all the way back up to $11.6250 on increased volume of more then 4 million shares. The stock held most of the gains as the NASDAQ experienced some late day selling into the close. Today the stock looks ready to hold 11.00 and could very well make the next move in its range back to where it found itself last week at $16.00 a share. The fact that yesterday's close was fractionally higher then Friday's in a down market sets this stock up well for a return visit back at $16.00 its current 5 days high in its trading range. It will take more volume then yesterday to begin its run back to the $16.00 mark. We will look to sell this one ahead of $16.00 hopefully on Thursday or Friday of this week.

ClearSite products can provide benefits in base station performance, reduce the size of the required filter components and enable network services providers to rapidly deploy new or upgraded systems for increasingly demanding environments. ClearSite products improve coverage, reduce interference and increase network capacity.
Stock Fans, CDTS crossed its 10 day moving average on strong volume. This stock said no to the Naz sell-off. I have been watching this and the entry here looks solid. Stochastic and MACD all indicate this is going higher. CDTS has a small 2.7 mil. float. It has a very high Relative Strength (RS) rating of 99 and it is being accumulated. The telecom suppliers are hot and I expect this to break to new highs for those willing to hold longer term.
