Stocks to Watch for August 8, 2013

ITT Educational Services, Inc. (NYSE:ESI) broke another key resistance today with an up move of 94 cents or 3.11% to 31.20. ESI had been trading sideways over the past 3 months and formed an ascending triangle consolidation pattern. Now the stock may retest its Sept 2012 52-week high at 40.15. Another important factor is the high short interest of 8 million shares or 40% of float, with a short ratio of 22. The technical daily chart above is showing bullish bias. MACD is indicating that the current short term price trend is very bullish. In addition, the AC/DT line is increasing, indicating accumulation of shares in the market. Keep this on your watchlist because the overall market sentiment on ESI is pretty bullish.
