Company Description

Why We Like It:
SYMC reported earnings on the 24th of October. The results were better than expected yet management warned for the next quarter. Normally a warning would have sparked a sell-off yet shares of SYMC rallied. Shares have since found support at the 50-dma and traders bought the dip today.

I do consider this a slightly more aggressive trade so we will want to limit our position size. I am suggesting bullish positions at the open tomorrow with a stop loss at $17.99, which is just under yesterday's low. Our initial target is $19.95.

*Small Positions*
