January 19th Swing Watch List
HTWR – From short watch last week to long watch this week. This gap down is climbing up and out of obscurity. This sold off after news from a recent conference and has been the topic of activist investor woes. At any rate, these 2010 levels are unjustified. Looking for a long entry over 31, stop 30. Room here is to 35 and then 40.50. This could be a big winner, but keep in mind, a larger ATR as well.
IPI – An interesting reversal setup on this small cap. Looking for a move back toward 2.60-3 in the short term. long entry here is over 2.20, stop 2.00.
APOL – A previous big runner and momentum name, APOL has a nice bull flag setup at these levels with great upside. Looking for a move to 8.40, then 9.60+ into the gap. Long entry is over 7.70, stop 7.50.
YUM – On short watch after taking a beating. Facing short term triple bottom support, if that fails, down the rabbit hole we go. Looking for a short under 66.75, stop 67.25. Room here is to 66.30 and then 65.80s.
