KWK $43.90 Quicksilver ** Stop Loss $41.50 **

Quicksilver is a driller of unconventional gas. It dipped to $42.05 on Monday to trigger our breakdown entry at $42.50. The company has very low costs and earnings are expected to increase by 50%. I am not putting an insurance put on this play and we will go with a stop loss instead.

Earnings due Tue August 2nd after the close.
