Company Description

Why We Like It:
Headquartered in Houston, ROSE is a domestic oil and gas company focused on the U.S. The stock soared on its earnings report even though the company missed estimates by 8 cents. Revenues did come in better than expected. The stock has been consolidating sideways near $45 and its 50-dma the last several days, showing some resistance to the market's recent weakness. Now ROSE is poised to rally toward its highs.

I am suggesting small bullish positions now. We'll use a stop loss at 43.90. The $50.00 level is still overhead resistance but we're aiming for $54.00.
