Why We Like It:
IMAX bounced nicely around $18.15 today which was a prior resistance level that should now act as support. The stock also created a bottoming tail candlestick on its daily chart which may indicate that sellers of the stock are waning. Buyers have been piling into the stock in recent months and IMAX reported earnings on 4/29 that beat expectations (.53 compared to .37 estimate). The company is experiencing a surge in earnings due to the onslaught of 3-D movies on the horizon. I suggest readers take advantage of the momentum and initiate positions if IMAX pulls back to $18.50. We will place our stop at $16.75 which is just below the 50-day SMA. Our target is $20.95 which is just below the stock's 52 week highs.

Please note that I can not post a chart for this play as I am having technical difficulties with my software. Please email me with any questions. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Suggested Position: Long IMAX stock at $18.50.
