Coventry Hlth Care - CVH - cls: 71.69 chg: -1.31 stop: 69.49

Okay, we got the pull back toward the $72.00 level. Now we just need to see that rebound. Healthcare (and CVH) has been the weak link in the market the last couple of days. We would be cautious here and make sure the stock is bouncing. A move over $72.50, maybe $73.00, would be a signal to consider new call positions.

Reynolds American - RAI - close: 80.45 chg: +1.09 stop: 76.49

RAI is getting a boost today. The stock added 1.37 percent on above average volume to breakout over the $80.00 level. Giving it a boost was news that RAI is raising its quarterly dividend by 10.5% to $1.05. Plus, JPMorgan raised its price target on larger rival Altria Group (MO). Our target is the $84-85 range.

Rio Tinto - RTP - close: 128.25 chg: -0.55 stop: 123.33

No change from our previous update on 07/12/05. RTP looks poised to hit our target in the $129.50-130.00 range but more conservative traders may want to consider taking some profits now. We noticed that volume was very strong today for RTP.

Wellpoint Inc - WLP - close: 69.35 chg: -0.79 stop: 67.49

We remain on the defensive here. The momentum in the health insurance stocks has died. We're likely to exit early if WLP trades under $68.75, which looks like minor support over the last week.

Picked on June 05 at $ 68.40
