NEW BEARISH Plays
SanDisk Corp. - SNDK - close: 34.70 change: -0.71
Stop Loss: 35.35
Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 3 to 6 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
SNDK is in the data storage and flash memory industries.
The stock has seen a very sharp decline in the second quarter but the oversold bounce is rolling over (again). Now SNDK is flirting with a breakdown under support in the $35-34 zone.
Today's low was $34.00. I am suggesting a trigger to open bearish positions at $33.90. If triggered our target is the early June low. We'll plan to exit at $31.25. More aggressive traders could aim for the $30 level instead.
Trigger @ 33.90
Suggested Position: short SNDK stock @ (trigger)
