Company Description

Why We Like It:
SI is listed as being in the technology sector but it's more like a conglomerate. Unfortunately for shareholders the stock has been falling in a bearish trend of lower highs and lower lows. The next stop appears to be the $80 area.

I am suggesting small bearish put positions at the open tomorrow. We'll use a stop loss just above the 10-dma. Our exit target is $80.25. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for SI is bearish with a $74 target.
