Company Description

Why We Like It:
It's a long way from its Internet bubble days at $140 a share but TIBX is trending higher. The company recently reported earnings in late March and beat both the revenue and the earnings estimate. Traders bought the post-earnings dip at support near $30.00. Now TIBX continues to build on its bullish trend of higher lows. The stock tried to breakout past resistance near $33.00 today but didn't quite make.

I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $33.50. We'll use a stop loss at $31.40. Our multi-week target is $35.75. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for TIBX is bullish with a $58.00 target.

Trigger @ $33.50

Suggested Position: buy TIBX stock @ (trigger)
