On Feb. 22, at $3.55, I said , "This stock is in a sideways trend, but accumulation of the shares appears to be picking up, and a saucer bottom may be forming. Along with the positive accumulation, the stochastic has been issuing buy signals, and another internal indicator, the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence ( MACD ) , is undervalued and issued a buy signal last week.

"The change in trend could be at a very early stage, so the technical picture is not purely positive, but recent changes in opinion by respected analysts in the absence of a negative technical picture make this an intriguing speculation."

And, on March 18, that review was repeated .

Last week, despite heavy selling in the broad market, Sprint broke from a triple-top on very heavy volume.

Our trading target is raised to $6, but a run to $10 by year-end is possible. S&P rates the stock a "four-star buy" and recently increased its 12-month target to $6 from $5.
