Company Description

Why We Like It:
Shares of this healthcare stock have been underperforming the market the last several days with a steady drift lower. AET tried to rally on Friday but traders quickly sold into strength. Now AET is breaking support near $38 and its 50-dma.

I am suggesting new bearish positions at the opening bell tomorrow. We'll use a stop loss at $38.65. Our target is $35.05. More aggressive traders could aim lower.

Suggested Position: short AET stock @ (the open)
