Apollo Group (APOL) ($21.69) is poised for a technical rally given daily closes above the 200-day simple moving average at $21.04. This stock peaked at $98.01 in June 2004, and has struggled since then. Apollo traded as low as $15.98 on March 4, and the weekly chart profile stays positive on a close this week above the five-week modified moving average at $21.45. My semiannual value level is $9.88 with a weekly pivot at $21.41 and quarterly risky level at $24.23.
Career Education (CECO) ($3.04) needs to have a daily close above its 200-day SMA at $3.16 to gather technical momentum. This stock at $3 should be considered an option on survival. Career Education peaked at $70.91 in April 2004, and traded as low as $2.03 on April 22. The weekly chart profile stays positive on a close this week above the five-week MMA at $2.81.
