Company Description

Why We Like It:
Pandora is the extremely popular Internet radio service that's also available on your smartphone. The company's management received a lot of flack for not offering a lot of details prior to their IPO back in June. Now months later the CEO is still not providing a lot of guidance. Yet that hasn't stopped the stock from rebounding this past month. There was a big lock up expiration back in early December, which depressed prices late last year.

Now shares of P are poised to breakout past resistance near $14.00 and its exponential 200-dma. I am suggesting a trigger to open small bullish positions at $14.25. We'll use a stop loss at $13.25. I am listing two different targets based on your time frame and risk tolerance ($15.90 or $17.75).

FYI: The Point & Figure chart for P is bullish with a long-term $23.00 target.

Trigger @ $14.25

Suggested Position: buy P stock @ $14.25
