Thursday's Stocks to Watch and Trading Ideas

   ( click to enlarge )

I'm back from my Easter vacations and willing to keep blogging for your reading. It was really a great time to unwind some of the pressure of markets and hope you all understand.

During today's trading session I was scanning some charts and I stumbled upon Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE:VG), whose stock has shown remarkable strength over the last 4 months. The stock made a new 52 week high this morning, but the bulls could not sustain the breakout and price closed well off its high. However, the technical chart above still showing that the stock is in a bull market rally as MACD is on top of signal line and %K line is on top of %D line. In addition, the medium term trend is also bullish as the stock is above 50-day and 200-day moving averages with both moving averages going up. Buy only when the stock breaches $5.30. Once the stock breaks this level we should see a strong upside move. The stock needs to stay above $4.98 to keep the short-term outlook positive.  Keep the stock on your screen throughout the day on Thursday.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS) is poised to breakout of this tight horizontal basing channel. Resistance for the breakout move is $46.72. LVS is a fast moving stock, so keep it on your radar.

Banner Corporation (NASDAQ:BANR) has been trading a very tight range for a few days right up at resistance. If it clears resistance the move may be powerful.

I'm actually pretty excited when i saw Hemispherx BioPharma, Inc (AMEX:HEB) chart because it is showing some bullish signal in its early stage. The stock has been trading on a downward slope since June 2009. Recently, though, it is showing some signs of a possible reversal. The chart of Hemispherx BioPharma is now much improved after today’s action. The MACD has reversed again the course and stock finally closed above its 200-day moving average with heavy volume. In addition, the stock was upgraded at Maxim Group today from Hold to Buy with a target price of $1.50. Today I alerted my readers on HEB via twitter.
