Notable Earnings After Close
May 3rd Swing Watch List
$HRTX – On watch for a breakout over the 200 EMA here as it curls up on support just under resistance. Room here is to 23.50 and then 25 short term. Long entry is over 22.55, stop 22.00.
$IBB – Will be watching for a bull call spread here. IBB has sold off sharply to support, and if it holds, should give us a nice bounce. We nailed this one last month and will look to do so again. Peeping a Jun16 275/280 call spread (debit around 2.35-2.50).
$ALK – Still on reversal watch. Long is over 71, stop 70.00. Room is to 72.50, and then 85.
$GBX – On short watch for a break down here below big time support. The short entry level is 28.28, stop 29.00. Room here is down to 25 or so short term. Nice relative volume as it tests support.
