  • Two days of bounces mean big gains 1 comment

    Just a look at how these 7 names have bounced off lows from this week and last. 

    stock low now change
    mcp $31.41 $38.20 21.62%
    fslr $61.55 $73.38 19.22%
    wlt $61.00 $70.19 15.07%
    agq $96.75 $119.00 23.00%
    idcc $44.01 $53.78 22.20%
    soda $34.20 $39.36 15.09%
    bac $6.00 $6.74 12.33%

    Molycorp has really been helped by the rebound in metals prices. First Solar got pounded last week but it looks like the shorts took some profits. Same with Walter Energy, as good things in Europe mean no "recession". AGQ is the double long silver ETF and has rebounded nicely. Interdigital has rebounded after yesterday's report that the company's sale was not going well. Sodastream has bounced with everything else. Bank of America is rising as Europe fears have calmed down.

    I have no positions in any of these stocks.
