Stock picks for Tuesday January 25

 ( click to enlarge )

I see little resistance for KB Home (NYSE:KBH) above $15.71 and a move this week through this level will be an indicator of a possible breakout which should drive the price to the $18 range. Investors looking for a quick near-term profit should look to trade KBH at these levels. Long-term investors can hold the stock as long as it trades above $14.20 while maintaining stop-loss at this level. Strong close above $15.85 will take the stock higher to $17.32 or $20 in the long-term. Technical indicators are supporting the bulls. EMAs are moving up and RSI is moving up above its 50% level.

LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (NYSE:LDK) is in a new bull-market. Investors with medium-term horizon can hold the stock with stop-loss at $12.28 and long-term investors can hold with deeper stop at $10.02. Target above $15 is $16.46.

I had mentioned that failure to surpass the 200-day moving average could result in the stock vacillating in the band between $16.65 and $14.63 for few more weeks. I stay with the view that long-term investors can hold the stock as long as it trades above the major support area. Since the stock has strong long-term support in the band between $15 and $14.65, investors can buy the stock close to $15 with stop at $14.63. Looking at the technical chart above we can see a bullish signal in short-term, the RSI reversed from going down to going up just at the weak level of 33. Speaks to a bottom  being put in. Stay tuned !!

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) was one of the few decent winners on Monday, as the stock closed up $2.53 on the day. NVDA broke out today on higher volume ( 2x normal daily volume ) above a major resistance point. Today‚Äôs high was $25.05, which is resistance for the follow through move. If the stock can break through this level, expect to see heavy volume drive the stock higher.
