Good Morning Stock Fans!


Stock Fans!, I am going keep this simple today, and take a more in depth look on research tomorrow in this section.

Today, The NASDAQ should open higher based on Futures over 4100.00. However I don't see a move of more then 75.00 as 4168.00 should act as resistance. If the NASDAQ breaks 4168.00 I will buy in more as it may go to 4188.00 but that would be absolute to as far as this trader is concerned.

I see the Index dropping back after 2:20 PM EST. Today and then beginning a drop that should take it back down to about 4001.00 as it looks to have a fractional gain today when its all over.

More to come on my NASDAQ Outlook Tomorrow!

30 day High: 4287.00
30 day Low: 3820.00
5 day High: 4287.00
5 day Low: 4047.00

SUPPORT: 3 day Range
RESISTANCE 3 day Range:


Today's Play of The Day is: F5 Networks: (NASDAQ:FFIV)

The stock looks like it may have bottomed out at current levels. It sets up well here I beleive for a nice 3-5 day play for a bounce back up to perhaps 55.00-57.00 area. It has strong support in its 10 day range at 43.50. It looks good to hold this and a buy just over 44.00. I will play it as follows:

Buy Area: 44.8750-45.8750
Sell Stop: 42.00
1-3 DAY TARGET: 48.50-49.00
2- 5 DAY TARGET: 52.00-55.00
10 DAY TARGET: 56.00-57.00
Type of Trade: daytrade/ swing trade



SAGO PLAY #1 Immunex Corporation (NasdaqNM: IMNX)

Immunex Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic products for the treatment of human diseases including cancer, infectious diseases and immunological disorders. The Company's major product lines are Enbrel, Leukine, Novantrone and Thioplex. Enbrel is a soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor used to reduce inflammatory activity in patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. Leukine is a yeast-derived granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor that is used to stimulate infection-fighting white blood cells. Novantrone and Thioplex are chemotherapy drugs that are used to treat pain in cancer patients. Immunex is currently developing new products to address ailments such as inflammatory disease, infection, multiple sclerosis, asthma and cancer.

Stock Fans, back in March this was one of Barron's Baby Boomer age plays! I like Immunex as it is one of the more profitable Biomed plays. Earnings last quarter increased by 700% over last year. They consistently have grown earnings and sales. The closing price crossed the sweet spot and the timing indicators look solid for an entry. Looking to catch a dip on the 60 min chart for an entry

Buy Area:$56.50-$57.25
Sell Stop:$54.96
Time Frame: 2-5 days
Type of Trade: Swing
Daytrade for $.75 - $1.50 point scalps. Avg. daily price range $4.75

SAGO PLAY # 2 Metricom, Inc (NasdaqNM: MCOM)

Metricom, Inc. is a provider of mobile wireless data access to corporate networks and the Internet. Metricom began offering its commercial service, marketed under the Ricochet brand name, in September 1995. Ricochet service is now available in the San Francisco Bay Area, in the Seattle and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas; parts of Los Angeles and New York; and in certain airports and corporate and university campuses. During 1999, Metricom has focused its efforts on designing and developing its new high-speed service, which is being marketed under the Ricochet brand name, and is being planned for launch during the late summer of 2000. Metricom has designed its new service to meet the needs of the growing number of professionals who require full access to their corporate networks and the Internet while away from the office. Metricom's service also will appeal to consumers who desire high-speed mobile access to the Internet

Stock Fans, Metricom is breaking out of its current trading range on strong volume. Metricom is 65% off of its high. Earnings and sales are nothing to tell Mom about but institutions are all over this. This is a riskier play than most so keep your stops in place.

Buy Area:$37.50 to $38.00
Time Frame: 1 to 2 days
Type of Trade: Swing Trade
Daytrade for $.50 - $.75 point scalps. Avg. daily price range $2.30
