Company Description

Why We Like It:
Traders are starting to wonder if the sell-off in the fertilizer stocks, especially MOS, is overdone. There is talk among industry experts that the current feud between some Russian potash cartel members will eventually be settled. That would suggest that current expectations for lower potash and fertilizer prices might be overblown.

On a short-term basis MOS is surging with an oversold bounce toward short-term resistance near $45.00. I do consider this an aggressive, higher-risk trade. Therefore I'm suggesting small bullish positions. Launch trades if MOS can trade at $45.10. If triggered our target is $49.50.

Trigger @ 45.10 *small positions*

Suggested Position: buy MOS stock @ (trigger)

NEW BEARISH Plays

Facebook, Inc. - FB - close: 37.02 change: -1.20

Stop Loss: 38.55
Target(s): 33.50
Current Gain/Loss: unopened

Entry on August -- at $--.--
Listed on August 13, 2013
Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks
Average Daily Volume = 86.2 million
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
FB surprised a lot of people with its better than expected earnings report. The stock has exploded higher in recent weeks. Yet in spite of all the bullishness, human nature is still in play. Everyone who bought FB in the IPO at $38.00 or near the $40.00 level is happy to sell and get their money back after more than a year of pain.

On a short-term basis the rally has reversed and FB appears to be correcting lower. The stock can be volatile so I would consider this an aggressive, higher-risk trade. We are suggesting new bearish positions now at current levels. More nimble traders could look for a bounce into the $37.50-38.00 zone as an alternative entry point. Tuesday's high was $38.32. We'll use a stop loss at $38.55. Our target is $33.50.

*Small Positions*

Suggested Position: short FB stock @ (the open)

- (or for more adventurous traders, try this option) -

buy the Sep $35 PUT (FB1321u35) current ask $0.75
