Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: COG) The stock price has been rangebound between 63 and 71 levels for almost three months now. The last decline did not test the lower end of this range, creating a higher bottom.  On the technical daily chart, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has taken support at 50 levels and turned up again. Similarly, the MACD has is turning up after sideways action in the bullish zone. I would not be surprised to see this range to be broken soon and the stock make new swing highs. Stop 63

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA On dailly charts, the stock is trending higher within a steeper rising channel. With the recent stock price rise it has managed to cross and sustain above January'13 swing high of 13.10, which was a strong resistance level. The stock price is now trading above the 13-exponential moving average, which worked well in past during the rise/decline. At this point, with many of the technical indicators overbought, NVDA needs to rest, consolidate and then regain momo.

LinkedIn Corp (NYSE: LNKD) From a technical standpoint i am a bit sceptical about this stock. It is still holding above the 50-exponential moving average, which is good, but the MACD still showing a negative divergence and CMF continues falling. Addionality, there is something to take note, the insider transactions. Since the begining of the month, the insiders have sold thousands of shares, more than 229.000 ( Check this out SEC FORM 4 ) Generally, when insiders sell shares especially in large amount it is a sign that "negative things" are coming or they think the company is overvalued (it's better to be cautious here imo)

Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ: BBRY) Broke the 50-exponential moving average on low volumes, but holding the 14.5 support area. This could encourage some short covering or attract fresh buying, since the main trend is up. I am still holding my long position. I love the high short interest in this one, mainly when the company is gaining traction. It seems almost everyone is shorting. Let's just wait and see what happens. Keep an eye on how it acts next week.

MFA Financial, Inc. (NYSE: MFA) extended its rally yesterday further and registered a recent high of 9.44. At this point, intraday bias is on the upside as long as the 9.28 minor support remains (9-exponential moving average).
