Stock Trade Ideas for Wednesday, Oct 19th

( click to enlarge )

Banner Corporation  (NASDAQ:BANR) broke resistance on Tuesday, as the stock closed up $.88 or 6.8% on the day. This should be the first of a bigger move, which could occur on Wednesday. I had mentioned in my previous article (published on October 13th ), it seemed that the money was flowing into the stock as indicated in the technical indicator OBV. The technical chart is now painting a bullish picture. We can expect now some resistance at $15.52 level followed by $16.46 level. Folks, BANR was mentioned on my twitter today.

I'm watching THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) again as the stock looks to be setting up for a big upside move. The stock has a very interesting daily chart. The stock is now back to positive trend again as it is now back above 50 day moving average after staying below the moving average since January. Now with KD rising the stock could be heading for a new bull market rally. The stock hit a high of $1.83 on Tuesday, which is resistance for Wednesday’s move. THQI will move very quickly, so watch the stock very closely over the next few trading sessions.

Yahoo! Inc.(NASDAQ:YHOO) is trading up after hours, as the company released good earnings. I expect YHOO to gap open on Wednesday, possibly gapping above the major resistance level. If the stock does gap above or trade through this level, let the stock consolidate before buying. YHOO should be a hot stock on Wednesday so watch it closely throughout the day.

Affymax, Inc. (NASDAQ:AFFY) Building a nice flag, holding above 13 day. A move on $AFFY above $5.05 could spark a nice short-squeeze. Potential upside of 100% exists for Affymax, based on a current level of $5.01 and analysts' average consensus price target of $10. The stock should find initial resistance at $5.22 and further resistance at its 200-day MA of $6.10
