Editor's Note:

The market's recent strength has produced a lot of potential bullish candidates. A few stocks that caught my eye today are: DIS, HD, LOW, PFE, F, and MSFT



NEW BULLISH Plays

Du Pont - DD - close: 35.10 change: +0.52 stop: 33.95

Why We Like It:
DD reaffirmed its earnings guidance today and the stock rallied toward its November resistance. The stock looks ready to breakout to new highs. I'm suggesting a trigger to buy DD at $35.55. If triggered our first target is $39.50. Our time frame is several weeks. We'll plan to exit ahead of the late January earnings report. FYI: The Point & Figure chart is bullish with a $56 target.

Texas Instruments - TXN - close: 25.94 change: +0.65 stop: 24.40

Why We Like It:
We are going to hedge our bets on the semiconductor sector. Currently LRCX is a bearish play but today's rally in the SOX semiconductor index was impressive with a 3% gain and a close over its 50-dma. Shares of TXN have been out performing its peers. If the market continues higher then TXN should help lead the way. Currently TXN has resistance near $26.00.

I'm suggesting a trigger to buy small bullish positions in TXN at $26.15. If triggered our first target is $29.75.
