5 Stocks to Keep An Eye On

DryShips Inc. (NASDAQ:DRYS)  suffered another day of profit taking with a 1.83% pull back but traders bought the dip at $5.90. Today's stock price action looks like further consolidation after Friday morning's big spike up. The technical picture is mixed but the medium-term trend is bullish and I suspect that DRYS is poised to move higher from here. My first target to take profits is at $6.83.

The big news with VIVUS, Inc.(Nasdaq:VVUS) today was that Orexigen’s drug Contrave had cleared a major regulatory hurdle on the road to approval. I believe it was today's news that accounted for VVUS big volume today. Usually when we see big volume and no movement with a stock near its highs I suspect it's distribution and bulls should turn more defensive. At this stage, the stock might be due for a rest so watch for a dip back toward $8.70. A closer look at the RSI reveals that the stock is extremely Overbought. On the other hand, fresh exposures may be considered on a move above $9.32, with a stop-loss at $8.70.

The overall trend in Cisco Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSCO) remains bearish but looking closely at the chart above we can see that in the short-term the stock is trying to bounce from oversold conditions. I've been concerned that the lack of downward momentum at this level is suggesting a short-term bottom. Before buying this stock, I want to see the price break the resistance of $19.70 and the 20 day moving average to the upside. On the other hand a drop under $19 would be very bearish and reinforce the downtrend.

ARCA biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABIO) continues to sell-off and on big volume, which is normally a bearish sign. The stock lost 9%. In terms of technical levels, the next major support is seen at 3.10 followed by 3.01.

I do not see any significant changes from my previous updates on Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK). The stock continues to look bullish. Keep an eye for a possible breakout over $4.85.
