Play Editor's Note: We are still keeping an eye on SPF. Today's move in SPF looks bullish but stop loss placement is going to be a challenge. Bear in mind that SPF is a huge short squeeze candidate with short interest near 63% of the float. Right now we'd be watching for a dip in the $5.20-5.00 zone as a potential entry point.

Why We Like It:
I mentioned DD as a bullish candidate in my Play Editor's note last night. Today's rally past the $48.00 level is a bullish breakout over significant resistance and a clear buy signal for the stock. Volume has been improving on the rally and shares have now cleared technical resistance at its 200-dma as well. The P&F chart is bullish with a $63 target and a move over $49.00 will reinforce this with a new triple-top buy signal. We are suggesting positions now but would prefer to buy a dip near $48.00, which should now be support. There might be a little resistance near $50.50 but our target is the $52.50-54.00 zone. We don't want to hold over the late April earnings report.

Nintendo Co - NTDOY - close: 66.75 chg: -0.34 stop: 63.95

Company Description:
Japan-based Nintendo is a video game producer responsible for revolutionizing the video game industry.

Why We Like It:
Shares of NTDOY have been trading under resistance at its 100-dma but with a bullish pattern of higher lows. The stock looks poised to breakout higher. We are suggesting that readers buy NTDOY at $68.01. If triggered our target is the $74.00-75.00 zone. Keep in mind that NTDOY is traded as an ADR here in the United States and shares will gap open up or down every day as they adjust to trading overseas. FYI: Some quote services might ask you to use the symbol NTDOY.PK to pull up data on NTDOY.
