7 Breakout Stocks With Technicals To Watch This Week
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ: BBRY): After a big surge early this month, the stock has been consolidated in a very good pattern, creating a flag formation on the daily chart. This is typically a bullish continuation pattern.
Friday's move it seems to have broken the flag's upper boundary, however we need a clear violation next week, followed by a break of the intermediate resistance at 7.45. Based on the technical chart, I see a high probability for a continuation of current momentum and a move toward the 8-8.25 area.
BlackBerry has already opened-up pre-orders for its Android smartphone, known as the Priv, a high-end QWERTY slider phone with a fantastic battery life and great camera. Blackberry Priv might be the most secure Android phone ever. This could be a good catalyst for shares.
Relypsa Inc (NASDAQ: RLYP): During Friday's market, the stock showed solid accumulation (as you can see on the chart above - A/D indicator) with the Investors soaking up all the cheap shares. Plus, the close above the previous day's high (reversal candlestick) should provide some strength to the bulls and encourage them to extend this bounce.
A sustainable move above 14 can push the stock higher towards 15.94 (9EMA) - 16.67 levels. After the FDA approval, some analysts gave positive comments with target prices well above $50 and one key insider has purchased 500,000 shares on Thursday, which is why you should watch this stock closely next week. Im long and strong.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) broke out of a large sideways channel pattern on solid volume, closing at the highest price in almost two months. If momentum continues, we could see the stock hit 130 over the next couple of sessions, but keep mind, Apple will report earnings on Tuesday afternoon, so everything can happen.
Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) Watch for a potential swing long entry. The daily chart depicts a resistance near 2.24 level from the falling trend line. A break above this level will confirm a new bullish trend and the following uptrend will take price up to $3 zone. The MACD is moving higher, which is a sign of growing strength in the stock. On radar.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) recorded a new high in Friday's session. Short-term outlook for the stock is bullish. Buy the stock in dips with a stop-loss at $98.88. The daily technical chart looks very Bullish with all EMAs going up and MACD on top of "0."
Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) is gaining some momentum again. A move past $16.20 would be a strong indicator of a further uptrend.
Aerie Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: AERI) Resistance Breakout. One idea is to go long on the break of Friday's high at 22.25.
