Company Description

Why We Like It:
SYMC is in the technology sector. The company provides security software. The company's latest earnings report in late January were not that bad with SYMC beating on both the top and bottom line. Guidance was in-line but investors sold the news pretty hard. SYMC has spent much of February trying to recover but never made it very far.

The selling resumed again in March and now SYMC is on the verge of breaking down below major support near $20.00. I am suggesting a trigger to open bearish positions at $19.85. If triggered our target is the $18.00-17.00 zone.

Trigger @ 19.85

Suggested Position: short SYMC stock @ (trigger)
