NEW BULLISH Plays
Level 3 Communications - LVLT - close: 24.93 change: +0.91
Stop Loss: 23.49
Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
LVLT is a communications technology company. The stock could see a short squeeze. The most recent data listed short interest at 26% of the 153 million-share float. Until today's +3.7% rally LVLT has been consolidating sideways the last several days. Now LVLT is testing resistance at its simple 200-dma and its late February high.
I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $25.25. If triggered our target is $27.75. More aggressive traders could aim a lot higher.
FYI: The Point & Figure chart for LVLT is bullish with a long-term $41.50 target.
Trigger @ $25.25
Suggested Position: buy LVLT stock @ (trigger)
