  • Speculation Saturday: 10 Stocks for the Watch 0 comments
    Jun 6, 2009 1:56 AM | about stocks: ARUN, BDSI, CKSW, PMTI, AFFX, AFSI, LAD, GLP, HOLI, ARQL, V, CAT, BBRY, PALM, GOOG, BAC, SIRI


    Here is an updated list of 10 stocks I'll be looking to trade as of market open June 8, 2009. These are the current highest bull/bear rated stocks my screener has returned. Looks as if there’s no specific trend among these stocks this week; last week there was a trend among the commodities, especially mining and gold stocks, among the speculation of a U.S. credit downgrade. To get a detailed definition of the bull/bear components check my Bull/Bear Ratio Defined Blog post by clicking here.

    Aruba Networks, Inc (NASDAQ:ARUN) 14:0

    BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (NASDAQ:BDSI) 13:0

    ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:CKSW) 13:0

    Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PMTI) 13:0

    Affymetrix, Inc. (NASDAQ:AFFX) 13:0

    Amtrust Financial Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:AFSI) 13:0

    Lithia Motors, Inc. (NYSE:LAD) 13:0

    Global Partners LP (NYSE:GLP) 13:0

    HLS Systems International Ltd. (NASDAQ:HOLI) 13:0

    ArQule, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARQL) 13:0



    These are the top stocks and have not received as bullish ratings in the past few weeks. I would use extreme caution if planning to purchase any of these stocks and would do some extensive research before I jumped in any of them. These will certainly be on my watch list the next few trading days. I'll wait for a 7-10% pull back to purchase any of them and set a tight stop loss if I happen to purchase any of them. If I purchase any of them, I will be selling into strength.

    Current Bull/Bear Ratings for many of the stocks I blog about frequently:

    Visa (NYSE:V) 9:1
    Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) 9:3
    Research in Motion (RIMM) 10:1
    Palm (PALM) 11:1
    Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) 11:1
    Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) 6:4
    Sirius Satellite Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI) 1:11

    For those in the first list I will be looking to purchase call options on some of them (some do not have options).

    Disclosure: Long V, CAT, PALM, GOOG, BAC
