Editor's Note:

The stock market's widespread rally last week has created a large number of bullish-looking candidates. We are adding ERTS and VMED as new trades tonight. Here is a list of additional stocks that caught my eye as potential trades:

TGT, JWN, TER, BMY

plus these looked interesting:

PAYX (over 50-dma), AKAM (over 23.00), TDC (over 53.00), SYK (over 50.25), DPS (over 38.65), CREE (over 100-dma), WFR (over 7.20 or 7.25), SBUX (over 39.50), STX (over 12.35), BBY (over 26.25), TRV (over 51.00), JCP (over 50-dma) CBG (over 15.60), JDSU (over 14.00)

Plus... here is a list of stocks on my radar screen but most of these either need to see a pull back or a breakout past resistance:

SNDA, BMC, LIFE, LRCX, ALTR, FAST, SYMC, CAM, HOT, RHT, LTD, PCAR, A, MDT, MWV, TXN, M, AIG, NDAQ, GME, BBT, TXT, JBL, TIE, MWW, DF, LUV, TLAB,

NEW BULLISH Plays

Electronic Arts - ERTS - close: 23.01 change: +0.04

Stop Loss: 21.45
Target(s): 24.85
Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
ERTS has spent three weeks bouncing around the $21-23 trading range. Were it not for option expiration on Friday I suspect the stock would have broken out of this range but the stock was pinned to the $23 level for expiration.

I am suggesting bullish positions now but only if ERTS and the S&P 500 index both open positive on Monday morning. Alternative entry points could be a new relative high over $23.25 or a dip back toward $22.00, which should be short-term support. We will list this play with a stop loss at $21.45. Our target is $24.85. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for ERTS is bullish with a $32.50 target.

*see Entry Point Details Above*

Suggested Position: buy ERTS stock @ open

virgin Media, Inc. - VMED - close: 26.13 change: +0.80

Stop Loss: 24.40
Target(s): 29.50
Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
VMED has spent weeks building a bullish trend of higher lows. Now shares have finally broken through resistance at its 50-dma and the $26.00 level. Friday's move looks like a new entry point. I am suggesting bullish positions now but only if VMED and the S&P 500 index both open higher on Monday morning.

We do want to keep our position size small to limit our risk. VMED is facing additional resistance at its 200-dma and near the $28.00 level. We'll start with a multi-week target at $29.50. I'm suggesting a stop loss at $24.40. FYI: The most recent data listed short interest at 14% of the 310 million-share float.

*see Entry Point Details Above*

Suggested Position: buy VMED stock @ open
