No real change from previous updates on 04/05/05 and 04/03/05. More conservative traders may want to exit here. PLMO's lack of participation in today's bounce is not a good sign. The current consolidation looks somewhat bearish and points to a coming breakdown under the $24.50 level.

Dropped Puts

Millipore - MIL - close: 44.42 chg: +0.54 stop: 45.05

MIL is still stuck in a longer-term down trend but we are uncomfortable with today's breakout and close over the simple 50-dma. Bears can argue that volume was very light and suggestive that the move is certainly suspect. Yet bulls will point out the new growing positive tone to the technical oscillators. We're choosing to exit early and minimize our losses.

Picked on March 16 at $ 43.95
Change since picked: + 0.47
Earnings Date 04/21/05 (confirmed)
Average Daily Volume = 358 thousand
