Stock Fans, here is a company you won't find on Barron's weekend list (The list of Companies running out of cash)! I have been watching and waiting for a pullback opportunity and it is here! This stocks fundamentals are as strong as they get. EPS rate=99 and a Relative Strength=90. MACD and Stochastics are turning up!
KEY INDICATORS: RSAS
Time Frame: 2-6 days
Type of Trade: Swing
BONUS PLAY #1 - Southwest Securrities (NYSE:SWS)
Southwest Securities Group Inc. (NYSE:SWS), a brokerage and one of the founders of U.S. market maker Knight/Trimark Group Inc. Whose whose business units include Mydiscountbroker.com and Westwood Management Corp. is a online broker as well as an Investment Banker based in Dallas Texas.
This stock looks perfect to play at current levels as it should follow (NASDAQ:NITE) as it owns a great deal of it. It also owns all of Mydiscountbroker.com, a very popular online broker of late. It also is looking to perhaps spin off one or more of its business's setting itself up well to be a take over target. It has already stated that it is open to a merger with a bigger broker.
Looking at the stocks trading of late, it added on more then 270,000 shares about 50% more volume then it usually sees in a 1 day trading period over the last 30 days. The trading graph shows that the 30 day high on shares of (NYSE:SWS) is $48.00. It closed on Friday at 45.00 its high of the day. It should open today to the upside as it is a (NYSE:SWS) stock, and doesn't open at the bell if there are imbalances to the buy side or sell side. In short if SWS breaks 49.00 its off to the races as this stock has a total of less then 12 million shares outstanding, and perhaps as low as less then 2.5 million shares in its float. It went as high as 97.00 last May 1999 as supply on this one gets real low as demand gets high. We really like SWS as a 10 day swing play to follow NITE as shares of SWS could go as high as$67.00 in the next 10 trading days!
KEY INDICATORS: SWS
Buy Area: on today's open
Sell Stop: $42.00
Time Frame: 10 -14 trading days

Bonus Play #2: Cohu, Inc. (NasdaqNM: COHU)

Stock Fans, here is a company that came up in one of my favorite research reports. This baby is being accumulated, oversold and bouncing.
