Company Description

Why We Like It:
About two weeks ago shares of MS soared on a better than expected earnings report. Since then the stock has consolidated sideways inside the $22-23 trading range. Traders bought the dip at its rising 10-dma yesterday and now MS looks poised to breakout past $23.00 soon.

I am suggesting a trigger to open small bullish positions at $23.15. If triggered our target is $26.00. We will start with a stop loss at $21.95.

FYI: MS has a five-cent dividend payable on Feb. 15, 2013 and will begin trading ex-dividend on Friday, Feb. 1st.

Trigger @ 23.15 *Small Positions*

Suggested Position: buy MS stock @ (trigger)
