Company Description

Why We Like It:
VMED provides cable, broadband Internet, television, and telephone services in the United Kingdom. Shares have been consolidating sideways in the $27-28 range for weeks. Today's bullish breakout should signal the beginning of the next leg higher. VMED normally doesn't see big moves like this so I am expecting a little pullback first.

We want to launch bullish positions on a dip at $28.25. We'll use a stop at $27.25. Our multi-week target is $31.50. I suspect VMED could see more short covering since the most recent data listed short interest at 20% of the 256 million-share float. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for VMED is bullish with a $41 target.

Buy-the-Dip Trigger @ $28.25
