Good Morning Stock Fans!

SJ CALLING FOR NASDAQ 4800! This WEEK "Has He Fallen off the BULL and IS He Full of it! READ ON AS HE EXPLAINS WHY!

NASDAQ OUTLOOK TODAY (Includes this week):
Stock Fans! Therrrre BACKKKKK! Yes! Finally, those beaten down issues such as HSAC, IIXL even ESHR ESFT they all added on major volume some of them more than 700% or more on Friday as the NASDAQ hammered, crushed, make up a new adjective for its issues Net and Tech related that were flying high in Jan, Feb, and March 2000 till April did more then Showered them. They made like Wicked Witches Of The West and almost MELTED!

However, as in this "Wonderful World We call the NASDAQ!" they are back and on fire as the action many of the names showed on Friday sets up for a cycle that could and should send the NASDAQ to 4800.00 this week! The fact that these names are busting out on massive volume increases the likelihood that a move up should take place and have us sailing high by week’s end-- some of these stocks haven't traded more than a handful of shares a day of late. This sets up nicely for Options Expiration at the end of the week for July 2000!

You are all going see later in this email, that SJ was hard at work this weekend as some these company names many of you may have never seen. Others of you Vets may need to dust off your trading charts of these stocks from March! Today's Play's and Stocks on My Screen have them listed and ready to flash big volume and hopefully even bigger percentage gains on my screens today!

The Cycle may well end this Friday but I am looking for a move to 4800 this week once the NASDAQ possibly loses 4200.00--maybe even 4182.00 after today's open. The stock like BWAY, BLSW, SGNT, GO, GOTO they aren't running up on wishes and prayers they are doing so because the NASDAQ has 4200.00 back and investors, as well as traders, know all too well some pretty amazing things happened from NASDAQ 4200 - 4800 in March 2000!

What's going to do it? 3 Things!
Panic Buyers!
Bears Shorting what they see as crazy moves higher
and Short Covering as those that went short in April get out of the way of the train!

Words SJ will have stamped on his Forehead today! "In the NASDAQ what goes up must go up more to come down!"

So Lets do it Today and this week and RIDE THE BULL!


Today's Play of The Day is: @Home Excite: (NASDAQ:ATHM)
Stock Fans! as I looked at about 500 stocks this weekend I almost passed out checking the old @Home Excite (NASDAQ:ATHM), As this ill fated name of late has been anything but "Exciting!"

This stock, ATHM has been hammered since its June 1999 explosion to 205.00 intraday its been blasted on not an adjusted split but instead on just plain hammering to a June 2000 low of? "Come on really!---- 15.00! Since then this stock has made a nice move as it has been as high as 23.00 on what ? 17 million shares about 10 days ago? Why didn't that volume send this one to over 30.00? Well, perhaps ATHM has other ideas as the July 30's 45's and July 65's option calls might be sneaky in showing me of late!

Stock Fans! ATHM has over 10,000 open interests on the ATHM July 30, 45, and 65 option calls Are u kidding ATHM is trading at 20.00 a share. Those options expire by this Friday! Is it possible for ATHM to maybe triple 20 + 20 + 20 = 60!!!


Perhaps the reason ATHM could go to 60.00 backing up those Options is there has been a rumor of a buy out before. Its been recent--and Friday's 7 million plus volume barrage moved it not a whole lot as it could be setting up to explode! Either way I go into ATHM and feel right "At Home!" today as I look for ATHM which has a chart with a 38 top spike from mid April 2000, and a low of 15 that = 23.00 Then, take Friday's high of 20.18750 and we have 43.00 add in the gain of 1.68 Friday and we have 200 day resistance for ATHM from April 14, 2000 the day that I think that they began to load up on those ATHM Call Options!

ATHM could see 44, 45 this week on just the 3 things I outlined in my NASDAQ Outlook today 65.00 would be buy out City!

Buy Area: 20-21.50
Sell Stop: 17.00
1-3 DAY TARGET: 25.00-30.00
4- 5DAY TARGET: 33.00-44.00 even 45 60 if it gets bought out!
Type of Trade: Swing Trade

Open interest on the ATHM July 35.00 calls is over 6000.00 That's more than 10.00 out of the money! In addition, the July 45.00 calls have over 3100.00 open interest, and the July 65 calls have more than 2250.00 open interest! All three option contracts sell for only 3/16 ($0.18750 each) If ATHM does go to 45.00- or 50.00 that means the ATHM Options could
increase by 2000% or more! 3.99 each!

This stock was over 220.00 in March 2000 then was crushed to under 20.00 by the end of April. It has now made a move over 25.00 again and added on more then 400% its normal volume Friday as it ran up 3.00. Its current Chart pattern is has created perhaps the most BULLISH of signs. It has its 50 day and 200 day MA touching that says BUY ME all over it and SJ is listening loud and clear!

Buy Area: 24.50-26.25
Sell Stop: 22.50
1-3 DAY TARGET: 32.00-36.00
1-5 DAY TARGET: 37.50-40.00
10 -30 DAY TARGET: over 50? It moves fast!
Type of Trade: Swing Trade

BONUS # 3 Internet Capital Group (NASDAQ:ICGE)
This former high flyer ICGE, added on a staggering 10 million plus shares Friday as it neared 40.00 a share and busted through its 50 day MA. This stock with CMRC, ARBA and the likes of other B2B Ecommerce plays exploding of late should add on fast. If this thing breaks 50.00 its gone to maybe 70.00 this stock could really go up like a rocket this week and easily according to its chart add on 30! And possibly almost double!

Buy Area: 38.50-41.1250
Sell Stop: 36.00
1-3 DAY TARGET: 46.00-47.00
2-5 DAY TARGET 52.50-54.00
7 DAY + TARGET: 60! Could be!

"This Could be the Next HUGE TECH PLAY!"

Excalibur Technologies (NASDAQ:EXCA) PE RATIO IS 4,250.00
Bob Pro Trader Maxtrade! (what a name) in my LIVE Trading Room was as
Ecstatic as I was this weekend when I found EXCA. He is being the kind of TEAM Player that has set Apart as he profiles EXCA more in depth for all of us!

Thanks BOB! Question is? Do you think Bob is buying EXCA? LOL read on !


The first thing that jumps at me is the fact the stock had a sudden volume surge on Friday which led to a test of the all time high, 51.375. Then, the stock bounced off that and closed slightly lower, it appears that a breakout is indeed close. The stock traded 512% of its daily volume and all indicators point for a burst through the all time high into blue sky territory. On a short term technical basis the stochastic indicator is extremely overbought, but that can be a conflicting indicator given the huge volume. The long term opinion for the company is awesome the stock has tremendous support at 45.375 and again at what looks to be the 42.25/42.375 area. Its 200 DMA (daily moving average) is at 25.1875! and the 50 DMA is at 33.9375. This company has an EPS of .01 and a projected EPS for FYE of .12 and FYE 2002 of .44. That’s some serious growth!!

The current PE ratio is 4937.50...again that's 4937.50, no mistake. The fundamental target value with current valuations FYE 2001 is 592.50 per share! for FYE 2002 it would be 2171.50! All in all, its a buy IF the stock busts through the overhead resistance at 51.375. target 51.75 as an entry price with tight stop loss around support at 45.375.

I agree BOB, I am a BUYER 532.00 a share this stock is based on 2001 earnings estimates! WOW In the portal ecommerce solutions business. Need we say more! This stock could and should be with ZERO debt the JDSU I missed 3 years ago at 20 per share--its maybe that good and has only 14 million shares outstanding. Can you say EXPLOSION and SPLIT! I can! It looks great and of course it has risks like any and all stocks do but the potential REWARD on this one sure seems to erase the risk!

Buy Area: 47.50-52.00
Sell Stop: 44.00
1-5 DAY TARGET: 53.00-55.00
2-10 DAY TARGET: 60.00 plus
30 -90 DAY TARGET: 80.00- 90.00
6 MONTH TARGET: 160.00
1 YEAR TARGET: 300.00 PLUS could be seen!

AFCI reports after the bell today and is trying for a 90 day high. This telecom stock hit a wall at 64 in June. But it is well within reach of that mark now.Today AFCI will be in play and the July options are a great play. We recommend the July 60 calls. If AFCI comes with good numbers and market conditions remain favorable this week, AFCI could see 70. Watch for volume confirmation and breakout.
