Trade of the Week for November

Cleveland Cliffs, Inc. (CLF(Triggered) This week we are revisiting a previous Trade of the Week because it is setting up again for a decent swing trade opportunity. Almost one year ago, we called CLF a great looking setup back when it was under 10 dollars. Fresh off their recent earnings report, CLF is breaking out of congestion once again and has our attention.

First Solar, Inc. (FSLR(Triggered) The daily chart of First Solar, Inc. (FSLR) looks to have reacted kindly to the earnings report last Thursday. With a nice flush of sell orders and a spring back recovery above the rising 10-day simple moving average. The chart of FSLR seems to have tested the will of the sellers and is looking to move higher.

Academy Sports and Outdoor, Inc. (ASO(Triggered) Looking at the “A Table” scan this week, Academy Sports and Outdoors (ASO) looks poised and ready for a short squeeze from this healthy consolidation we see on the daily chart. With 84 million shares in the float and 27% of those shares being held by short sellers, ASO looks to be the one to go with this week.

PubMatric, Inc. (PUBM(Triggered) Using the A Table TopList once again we see a name with a low float of 17 million shares and 40% of those shares are held by short sellers. PubMatic, Inc. (PUBM) looks to have reported great earnings on November 9th. With a gap, volume and consolidation right here, this one fits our criteria for a possible short squeeze this week.
