The Play Of The Day

Today's Play of The Day is: Westell Technologies (NASDAQ:WSTL)
Westell Technologies (NASDAQ:WSTL) traded more then its 30 day average volume yesterday, and it finished at its high of the day. It also was quite impressive in that it had such a tight range yesterday when the NASDAQ fell more then 100 points (NASDAQ:WSTL) dropped less then $1.00. What that says is that plenty of investors were willing to hold this stock even in a declining NASDAQ market. The fact that volume stayed high also sets up well for the stock to add on further today. We like this stock to continue its uptrend and find the 40's over the next 5 trading days. Today we like (NASDAQ:WSTL) to hold $35.00 and then make its way to all time highs of $39.00. Once again today volume will be key as (NASDAQ:WSTL) is still a relatively undiscovered wireless play. The wireless sector is extremely hot of late and we really believe that (NASDAQ:WSTL) could have its target raised over the next few days.

Stock Fans, here is your classic breakout! BWEB is breaking out to new highs. The stock is being accumulated on increasing volume. Typically a breakout will rest for 1-4 days before continuing its run. I feel that we can get a chunk out of this run before the rest period.

Stock Fans, as the Naz begins to look like it is overheating investors will be looking for other investment options. The drug sector looks oversold and Pfizer is no exception. It is just a couple dollars away from its 52 week low. Now I don't know about you but this stock's chart shows all of the indications of bouncing. This is a growing sector as the baby boomers reach to the pharmacy to cure their ails.
