Many of the candidates above need to see a breakout past resistance directly overhead.


Flextronics Intl. Ltd. - FLEX - close: 7.09 change: +0.22

Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below

Company Description

Why We Like It:
This is a momentum trade. After hovering near resistance in the $6.80 area for a few days, shares of FLEX are suddenly accelerating higher. We want to keep our position size very small. This is an aggressive trade. I am suggesting we open new positions tomorrow morning but only if both FLEX and the S&P 500 index open higher. We'll use a stop loss at $6.75, just under the 10-dma and prior resistance at $6.80.

Our multi-week target is $8.00. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for FLEX is bullish with a $9.00 target.

Do not enter position unless FLEX and the S&P 500 are both positive at the open

(small positions)

Suggested Position: buy FLEX stock @ the open
