Notable Earnings After Close



October 14th Watch List

$OCN – Back on watch after a nice win last week. This thing pulled back and showed big strength in market weakness. Looking for a long entry over 3.75, stop 3.51. Target is 4.15 and then 4.50.

$RPM – Still watching for a reversal play. Long entry is clearly over 48.06, stop 47. Target will be 49.50 and then 50.

$NVDA – Waiting for a healthy market day to get in on this pull back opportunity. If the 20 EMA fails, this trade is off the table. Friday will be telltale.
