Stocks in Play for May 18, 2010

The technical chart has strong short-term resistance at $7.58. Long-term investors can hold Somaxon Pharmaceuticals with a stop at $6.48. SOMX is also a high beta stock and hence a high-risk play. Fresh exposures may be considered only on a close above $7.58. The price can then go on to $8.46.

The major resistance has been broken in this chart. The price can move up to $4.80-$4.91 in the short-term. S has been doing well recently as %K line is on top of %D line with MACD on top of signal line. Now that the stock is above this horizontal resistance line more buyers should be coming.

KWK should be bought only on a close above $13.60, as it faces strong resistance at that level.

Shares of LVLT rose 5.6% to 1.32 cents per share. The technical chart above shows the stock is weak with MACD below 0. However as the stock has bounced off from support at $1.22 cents and %K line has just crossed on top of %D line the stock has the chance to start a new rally.

Other stocks to watch:

CTIC – Cell Therapeutics, Inc. – Technically, the stock is starting to break down as it is trading below the 50 day moving average.

SONS – Sonus Networks – Watching for a close above $2.61

SIRI – SIRIUS XM Radio Inc. – I Will buy on a break above $1.13

RMBS – Rambus can pop big time on any positive news.
