May 6th Swing Watch List
$TAC – Not normally a fan of power plays, but I like this for a move back toward 7+. Long entry is over 5.29, stop 5.00. Add spot over 5.57 and then look to sell thru 6 and 7.
$SBH – On short watch for a move lower thru 200EMA support following an earnings miss. Sitting on massive support at 30.00, l00k for a break toward 29.00 if 30 falls. Short entry is under 30, stop 30.50.
