    Tommy Lackey’s Watch List

    Tommy Lackey, managing director and portfolio manager at Relativity Capital Advisors joined the show to discuss some stocks on his scans. These include Rent-A-Center Inc (NASDAQ:RCII) ("Kind of a look both ways play…I'd make it get over $11 before getting involved"),
    First Majestic Silver Corp (NYSE:AG) ("This is one I'd like to see back around the $9 level") and Horizon Technology Finance Corp (NASDAQ:HRZN) ("This is a big base here. I'd rather see it consolidate around the $11.20–$11.30 area. I'd like to see it cool off a little right here").

    Gordon Johnson’s Canadian Solar Initiation

    Gordon Johnson, the managing director of Axiom Capital Management, also joined the Benzinga PreMarket Prep crew. Johnson initiated Canadian Solar Inc.
