Why We Like It:
CLDX is a biotech stock. It looks like shares have seen a rebirth given its significant rally from its 2011 lows near $2.50 a share. It seems investors have high hopes for CLDX's current pipeline of drugs in development.
Technically CLDX broke out past resistance near $22 in mid August. The stock seems to have formed a new trend of higher lows and higher highs. Currently CLDX is poised to breakout past round-number resistance at the $25.00 level.
I am suggesting a trigger to open small bullish positions at $25.15. If triggered our target is $29.00 (if you're playing the options I would use a lower target).
NOTE: Traders need to be aware that biotech stocks can be a higher-risk trade. You never know when an unexpected headline about some clinical trial or FDA approval process could send the stock plunging or soaring. I am suggesting investors keep their position size small to limit risk.
Trigger @ 25.15 *small positions*
Suggested Position: buy CLDX stock @ (trigger)
