Company Description

Why We Like It:
The financial sector has been showing relative strength this past week and the XLF looks like it could breakout past its 2012 highs. We want to look at BAC as bullish candidate. I suspect BAC will perform better than the XLF. You can see from the chart below that BAC has a bullish bias to its pennant-shaped consolidation pattern. This past week has found resistance at $9.60.

I am suggesting a trigger to launch bullish positions at $9.65 with a stop loss at $9.25. Our multi-week target is $10.45.

Trigger @ 9.65

Suggested Position: buy BAC stock @ (trigger)
