Stocks to Watch Thursday

( click to enlarge )

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) - Breaking out to new highs. You want to keep AAPL on your screen for Thursday’s trading.

InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC) traced out a nice setup and the upside breakout has a lot of power. Volume surged and this breakout looks like it is here to stay. Crossed its 50 day moving average and is probably heading for 49. There looks to be good upside in IDCC, so keep it on your radar the next few days. Some are speculating that Apple or Samsung might have an interest in buying this company. But there are also rumours that Google might want to buy this company. InterDigital owns an incredible number of very valuable patents, which could be a major incentive for a buyout.

The Home Depot, Inc. (NYSE:HD) has been hitting higher highs and higher lows amongst strong RSI price points. In fact, the RSI is showing multiple points of overbought periods. The stock has been on a strong bull market rally as %K line has been on top of %D line with stock trading above 50 day and 200 day moving average and MACD above 0. For the long term the stock should still continue to go up, however with this kind of overbough conditions I prefer stay away for a better opportunity.

Novatel Wireless, Inc.(NASDAQ:NVTL) is a bottom play trying to make a shift in trend and momentum. From a technical perspective, the stock shows a bullish divergence on MACD while Stochastic looks extremely oversold. To return to rally mode, the stock needs to cross its short-term resistance at $3.04. A move above this level would be positive for the stock. A reversal above $3.04 will take the stock higher to $3.30 or $3.60. Short term momentum is oversold with a positive MACD divergence. If the stock breaks through, there is a good chance you will see a strong upside move. In terms of fundamentals the stock looks cheap. It has a book value of $5.21 and the stock is trading at $2.95 this may signal that the stock is undervalued. In addition, the company has about $58 million in cash on the balance sheet with no debt. A major wireless company might find Novatel worthy of an acquisition. The stock is also a short squeeze candidate. Stay tuned.

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLR) - Broke out of the flag today.

Looks like the Bulls are going to win this fight. Just one more push to change the trend. Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) had a great move on the upside today and closed at $17.35. The stock is setting up to break out and has one more level to go, which is $19.19. The stock has good upside potential, so keep watching the stock for further moves.
