Stock to watch for next week

Lets take a look at Relypsa Inc (NASDAQ:RLYP) activity in the light of the recent successive price increases. Looking at the daily technical chart above, we can see that the stock is positively reacting to the recent events. The good side of this stock technically is that the MACD is still rising above the zero line and the RSI is above its 50% level, so this stock is still bullish for now even if it is still consolidating. As long as the price trades above the $18 level, there is no threat for any sharp fall in the near-term. Immediate resistance is around the 21.30 area. A strong break above this hurdle can take the contract higher to the next targets of 23 and 25.6. Options traders continue to bet on more gains. Hope next week we see breakout.

ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:ACAD) looking strong. With more than 25% of the float short, the stock should continue to move higher, despite the fact that it has already enjoyed strong gains. Keep an eye for a possible breakout over 36.88. The rumors about an acquisition are circulating again.

Ocean Power Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:OPTT) has been pulling back on low volume after massive one day rally on Wednesday. As you can see from the 30m chart above, in this corrective phase the stock has found a strong support on its rising 50-day EMA on multiple occasions (yellow line), forming a nice base. With MACD showing signs to enter the positive territory (positive divergence) beyond the centreline, a firm break of $4.08 on the upside would take the stock to the next immediate resistance at $5. A lot of people have shorted this stock over the past 2 sessions (A/D chart still showing accumulation) so we could see shorts pushing OPTT higher.

Put FORM Holdings Corp. Common Stock (NASDAQ:FH) on your agenda next week. The rally into the green late Friday afternoon, tells me that buyers are aware of the potential of this stock on positive news that could come at any time. The company has just under 14M shares in the public float and it could have an impact on upward pricing. OPTT rally last week should be considered as a serious warning for shorts. From a technical standpoint, MACD continues to make higher lows (Positive divergence). This is a clear sign that the bulls are slowly starting to gain momentum over the bears. A trend reversal looks imminent.

Can Fite Biopharma Ltd (NYSEMKT:CANF) price had a nice surge a few weeks ago and has been in a correction mode. The stock is now displaying upside momentum and is poised to move higher from these levels. Nearest resistance for the stock is at $3.10. If this level is crossed and the stock is able to sustain above this level, then it might go to $3.59. Keep an eye on CANF next week.

Whiting Petroleum Corp (NYSE:WLL) is another stock I am watching closely. On the chart above, we can see that the stock is currently trading within an ascending triangle formation and needs to break 13.2 on higher volume to really start moving. Despite recent pullback, the daily RSI remains above 60 levels and may support the bullish argument. Additionally, the MACD still show the stock is on the positive swing. On watch.

Shares of Lion Biotechnologies Inc (NASDAQ:LBIO) soared 43.45% or 28 cents to $8.65 per share on heavy trading volume Friday after announcing a new CEO and raising about $100M in a private offering. It broke out of a major resistance area around 8.40's and it will be very bullish if it can continue to rally next week. Friday's high is immediate resistance on the upside for another fast short squeeze.

The stock price of Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARNA) has recovered smartly since the low of 1.48. It is currently in a short-term uptrend and may move up to 2/2.05 on volume trading. Technical indicators are bullish.

Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) stock seems to have broken out of an inverted Head and SHoulder pattern formation last week. Can get interesting. Keep close eye on this one for a major rally to the upside. Stop 11.72

Just to inform: The Stockal app got nominated as Best In Class among Trade Idea Platforms and Apps at the Benzinga Fintech Awards in New York last week. Here's something about their "Trending Stocks" feed: they take 3 parameters into account - analyst opinion (from top Wall St firms), social media buzz and changes in stock sentiment. Unlike most other platforms where Trending Stocks are decided based on what is being discussed most, Stockal helps discover 20 stocks every few minutes on the basis of these 3 parameters together. What this does is that the stocks that emerge have a higher probability of price movements. Many people say they have come across stocks, on Stockal, that they would have otherwise not paid attention to. So give Stockal the app a spin and say if it helped you discover some interesting stocks (that moved). Here's a link to their iOS app and their Android app . By the way, the apps are totally FREE for my readers.
