Company Description

Why We Like It:
Right now "cloud computing" is a hot button for investors and KEYN has definitely been showing some relative strength in April. The stock broke out from a two-month consolidation pattern and is holding above round-number resistance near $20.00. I do consider this a very aggressive, speculative trade so keep positions small to limit risk.

I am suggesting small bullish positions now. More conservative traders could put their stop near $19.65, which is just under yesterday's low (19.67) but the newsletter is suggesting a stop loss at $18.85 to give shares of KEYN room to maneuver. Our upside targets are $22.25 and $24.75 but this is a very speculative play and we will not hold over the earnings announcement on April 26th.

FYI: The Point & Figure chart for KEYN is bullish with a $41 target.
