Stocks Under $10 with 50-100% upside potential - 14 days FREE!

Big Swing Trade Ideas for Wednesday, May 14

Stocks in this article: HOS NCT SIRI

2. Next let's look at, Hornbeck, which through its subsidiaries operates offshore supply vessels.

Hornbeck traded positive on Wednesday, closing up 1.79% to $42.14 per share.

  • Tuesday's range: 41.49 - 42.43
  • 52 week range: 37.44 - 59.93
  • Tuesday's volume: 1,415,268
  • 3 month average volume: 653,814

Hornbeck is also a rounded bottom breakout, which occurred on Monday, and confirmed yesterday when it continued to trade over the 50-day simple moving average.

Yesterday formed a bullish kicker signal and traded strongly, and closed above near term resistance.

There is more overhead resistance at $43.53 abd then again at $44.50. There are a few small gap downs that will act as resistance, and so expect some consolidation on the upswing. The chart has been forming a "W" pattern, or a double bottom, which indicates that the bottom has formed and is not likely to trade lower.

Target the 200-day simple moving average at $48.75, which will be a 15% move from yesterday's close. I'd set a stop around $40, and wouldn't want to see it trade below this level. Stay long until you see a confirmed sell signal or a close below the t-line.

3. Finally is Sirius XM, which provides satellite radio services.

Sirius traded positive on Tuesday, closing up 2.19% to $3.27 per share.

    • Tuesday's range: 3.20 - 3.29
    • 52 week range: 2.98 - 4.18
    • Tuesday's volume: 68,881,557
    • Three-month average volume: 67,560,500

Sirius has had a tough time in the recent past, but yesterday, the stock traded positive. Sirius is a rounded bottom breakout since it closed over the 50-day simple moving average yesterday.

The stock looks to be turning around, but protect yourself since it is in a downtrend. I would target the 200-day simple moving average, and set a stop at about $3.20.

The 200-day simple moving average is 10% from yesterday's close. There are positive rumors around Sirius that could make this thing go crazy, and so be watchful.
