Editor's Note:

In addition to tonight's new candidate(s), consider these stocks as possible trading ideas and watch list candidates. Some of these stocks may need to see a break past key support or resistance:

(bullish ideas)
CHE, PNC, WCC, M, PSX, NTRS, JACK, NSC, TTC, H,

I also like NKE above $80.50 but earnings are coming up on March 20th.

(bearish ideas)
NXST, PKX



NEW DIRECTIONAL CALL PLAYS

ManpowerGroup, Inc. - MAN - close: 79.37 change: +0.95

Stop Loss: 77.90
Target(s): 85.00
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks

Company Description

Why We Like It:
MAN is in the services sector. The company provides permanent, temporary, and contract staffing services. The stock was a strong performer in 2013 but lost $15 during the market's January sell-off. Shares are trying to recover and they are poised to breakout past resistance near $80 and its converging 50-dma and 100-dma.

We are suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $80.55. If triggered our target is $85.00. More aggressive traders could aim for the highs near $87. The Point & Figure chart for MAN is bullish with a $90 target.

Trigger @ 80.55

Varian Medical Systems - VAR - close: 84.69 change: +0.28

Stop Loss: 83.40
Target(s): 89.75
Current Option Gain/Loss: Unopened
Time Frame: 4 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
VAR is in the healthcare sector. The company makes and services medical devices. VAR last reported earnings in January and management offered disappointing guidance. Yet this failed to seriously impact VAR's upward trend. The stock has spent the last couple of weeks consolidating beneath resistance in the $85 area and looks like it's building up steam for a breakout higher.

I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $85.05. Resistance is closer to $84.70 and more aggressive traders could jump in early at $84.75 instead. If the newsletter is triggered at $85.05 our target is $89.75. The Point & Figure chart for VAR is bullish with a $91 target.

Trigger @ 85.05
