The stock came on late in the day as it closed just slightly off its high. It held up quite well considering the NASDAQ sold off its 50 plus gains to close down almost 10 points at 4,904. The volume on WCII was equally impressive as it traded over 1.1 million shares more then 100% more its normal 30 day volume of 673,000 shares trading. The stock has been on a nice run of late as it has secured more financing to support its ever growing business. It looks very much like even in declining NASDAQ that WCII is not going to be denied it run back to its all time high of $57.56250 reached less then 30 days ago on Feb 10, 2000. We will look for WFII to find 57 plus ahead of March 10, 2000.

Stock Fans, did you read the description? Now this stock has sold as low as $30 on its first day of existence. Do you think with a description like that this is going higher over the next 5 days? 20 days? A broadband, digital wireless company with explosive revenues is a gift. Buying 1/2 position and will take the balance at 10% above or below my entry price.

BONUS PLAY #2: Zomax Optical Media Inc. (NASDAQNM: ZOMX)
Mentalist from the Far East? Archrival of Godzilla? No, Zomax (formerly Zomax Optical Media) replicates and distributes CD-ROMs and other multimedia products, including compact discs, cassettes, diskettes, and digital versatile discs (DVDs). The company also offers related services such as mastering, printing and packaging, and warehousing, as well as graphic design distribution, and returned-merchandise authorization. Zomax's customers include computer manufacturers (Gateway accounts for more than 15% of sales) and software distributors like Novell (13% of sales), Microsoft, and GT Interactive. It also works with independent record labels, book publishers, and other multimedia producers.
Fourth-quarter sales increased 268% to $64.3 million from just $17.5 million in the same quarter a year earlier. As the top line has soared, both gross margins and operating income have trended higher, with operating profit reaching 20.2% in the most recent quarter.
What's more, the stock is under accumulation, meaning there is intense buying pressure. It has been on a steady upward trajectory since last May, forming one of the prettier stock charts around today.
Stock Fans, why ZOMX, why today. I try to time entry around certain events and then I look for other reasons to confirm the entry point. So without getting to technical, we have a stock that is being accumulated. It crossed its 10 day moving average. Volume is just above its average at 302k. The volume suggest that this is not going to be a race car out of a gate. Its EPS rating is 99 (highest is 100). It's RSI compared to other companies is 99 (highest is 100). We have a company that is growing revenue and earnings at a fast clip and acquiring companies to make their business stronger. I am going to pick up this baby on the dip. So be patience!
KEY INDICATORS: ZOMX
Buy Area:$51.00 to $51.50
TARGET: $56.65 to $59.22
Time Frame: 3-10 days

Looking at the news for RVST yesterday, one would think that a huge sell off would have taken place. This news was expected and priced into the stock. We think it was overdone as is evidenced by the nice V-Bottom that RVST has put in on it's chart during the last two sessions. Traders are coming back into this one as it was $40 stock just a few weeks ago. Earnings are coming out soon; year-end financial results will be released after the close of the market on Tuesday, March 14, 2000.
