(NASDAQ:TMCS) on August 16, 1999, was as high as $30.00 dollars a share. Until this past Friday, September 10, 1999, (NASDAQ:TMCS) had sold down on LESS VOLUME with average 30 day volume of 553,000 as (NASDAQ:TMCS) closed on September 9, 1999, at $23.75 with volume of only 357,000 shares.
However. between this past Friday, September 10, 1999, and yesterday September 14, 1999, (NASDAQ:TMCS) has averaged daily volume of an amazing 1.75 million shares. On this out break of Volume (NASDAQ:TMCS) has gone as low as $22.8750 its low yesterday September 14, 1999, before it would close at $23.25 dollars a share.
I like (NASDAQ:TMCS) at current levels because it looks as if it has shaken out many investors holding shares longer term over the last 3 days as the VOLUME has increased by over 2 fold taken shares of (NASDAQ:TMCS) to what looks to me to a bottom of $22.8750 that it hit yesterday as it traded less volume then it had yesterday then the previous 2 days average volume of over 2.2 million shares. With yesterdays volume being much less then that only 777,200 shares (NASDAQ:TMCS) certainly looks to me if it has indeed hit its bottom representing a perfect buying opportunity.
Furthermore, (NASDAQ:TMCS) has little downside risk at current levels as it 52 week low reached over 6 months ago of $21.56 is less then $2.00 lower then where shares of (NASDAQ:TMCS) closed yesterday September 14, 1999, at $23.25 a share.
Taking all this information into account I find that at current price levels (NASDAQ:TMCS) is oversold and with that in mind and so close to it 52 week low of $21.56 the reward outweighs the risk today on shares of (NASDAQ:TMCS) today. I like this stock to go up form here as it finds it way back up to the 30.00 price range where it was only $30.00 trading days ago.
Buy Area: $22.8750 - $23.50
Sell Stop: $21.43750
TARGET: $28.25-$30.00 (3 days to 3 weeks)
