5 stocks to watch in the week ahead

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLR) strong enough to say and the Bulls are back. The stock finished the day up 7.25% on huge volume of over 2 million of shares exchanging hands on the day. Great volume and a 7% gain on the day makes the stock a clear and easy winner. Looking at the technical chart this looks to be just the beginning of OCLR's run and I’m extremely confident that the gains will continue. The stock appears to be under accumulation again. The MACD momentum has turned positive and Stochastic are on a strong uptrend which when combined with the strengthening MACD could spell a strong move for the stock. OCLR is beginning to turn and I want you to be able to see as much of this move as possible.

We are on the verge of a possible breakout in the shares of Sigma Designs, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIGM). I'm looking for a breakout above $8.57 in the short-term. SIGM is finishing up its consolidation phase. The new bullish trend on my daily chart looks good. Volume was on the light side, but once the stock breaks out we'll see an upturn in buying.  Key resistance is now located at $8.57, a break above this level will confirm the bullish trend and the following uptrend will take price up to $10 zone.

Pacific Biosciences of California  (NASDAQ:PACB) did close negative on the day, but I still think there is another upside move coming soon. There are several short and mid term technical indications suggesting that PACB could make a move to higher levels. The next resistance it could encounter is at $4.71.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) traded higher today, after the company released strong earnings late Thursday. The momentum clearly favors the bulls. As long as AMD can remain over $5.60, I like the stock. If $6.07 is broken, look for $6.47-$6.87.  Advanced Micro Devices could be a good stock for medium-term investment, based on its historical performance and from the technical indicators. Let's keep an eye on it.

Gulf Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:GURE) was up over 5% with very unusual volume on no now news. As a result for today's trading session, its volume traded daily went to a 2-month high. Looking at the technical chart, it seems the stock broke the resistance area at $2.24 ( 50-day SMA ) and has moved decisively to the upside. That’s a powerful sign that high prices are likely to continue. Long positions may be considered on price weakness, with a stop-loss at $2.20. The next resistance it could encounter is at $2.50. Once that level is breached, the next resistance could be the 3 psychological area then 3.05. In addition, the On Balance Volume is increasing, this clearly shows that smart money is moving into the stock.
