Top Trade Ideas for Thursday, May 05

  ( click to enlarge )

THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) successfully broke the resistance at $4.32 confirming a reversal from the previous downward trend. From the technical chart KD line shows positive signals as %K line is rising on top over %D line and RSI is now moving up. OBV is beginning to turn around which suggests the stock is no longer being sold off. Stock as a major resistance at $4.51.

Tellabs, Inc. (NASDAQ:TLAB) closed up despite the market decline. I'm starting to see a renew interest in the stock. I bought some today at $4.69 and I think that it could go to $5 relatively soon.

Health Net, Inc. (NYSE:HNT) is looking bullish on charts. The stock is currently trading above its major moving averages and MACD is positive and above the signal line. Other technical indicators are also supporting the bulls. As long as the stock can remain above $31.44, I like the stock. Resistance remains at $34.03 and I would be a buyer on a break above that level.

Crown Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CCK) is on the verge of a breakout and there's plenty of room for upside. The stock closed up $1.22  today and looks poised to make another move on Thursday. From my point of view, there are solid and consistent buyers here. CCK's chart suggest that increased buy side activity could push share prices to much higher levels. Short-term technical indicators are improving and the MACD on the daily chart produced a new buy signal. Keep an eye for a possible breakout over $40.
