Solar3D – The Daily Breakout Stock
Looking for the daily breakout on Solar3D (NASDAQ: SLTD) and we got it today! This one has been on our swing trade watch list for several days. I spotted this one on our low float momentum scanner that looks for stocks hitting high of day on strong volume. I then noticed SLTD on our Surging Up scanner, and scanner that looks for extremely high relative volume. Seeing the stock on both scanners gave me the confidence to jump in with a large position at 3.50 and look for a potential move to 4.00. This is the exact type of stock we look for. A strong momentum name with low float and a good catalyst.
The Catalyst on SLTD
The company announced preliminary second quarter earnings. “Solar3D announces prelim Q2 results; revenues expected to exceed $11 mln, up 95% sequentially; reiterates 2015 rev guidance of $40-45 ml“. I gernally look for catalyst that are announcements released from the company. I always feel stronger about trading those vs a rumor , speculation, or other confirmed story.
