Trade Ideas: AAPL, CFX, FORM, ZION

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) – Good risk/reward set-up at these levels and holding the bottom of the rising channel nicely(so far). The Slow Stochastic shows a bullish cross, signaling that the next move may be in an upward direction.

Colfax Corporation (NYSE:CFX) broke out to all-time highs during yesterday’s session to $32.69 per share, however in the final hour stock retracted closing at $30.84. Overall inidicators are still in Bullishs areas. Let’s see if today stock will confirm intraday breakout. Support at : $28.75 and Resistance at :$32.69.

Zions Bancorporation (NASDAQ:ZION) tried to move but the weak market held it back. The stock failed to close over the 50-day moving average now located at $17.06. A close over this level would be bullish and I’d look for ZION to test the $18.50 area. The Stochastic Oscillator is registering a bulish signal as the %K is now above the %D.

FormFactor, Inc. (NASDAQ:FORM) attempted to breakout yesterday but didn’t succeed. A breakout from this sideways zone will give an excellent opportunity for traders to pick up long positions. However, as long as the price still in this area, the bias remains neutral in short term. The only thing I don’t like about FORM is its volatility, because volality means indecision by the investors. It does not mean the stock will not breakout very soon but I want tighter price movement and solid volume so we know we are flushing out the sellers. Honestly, I think shorts are trying to scare the small investor before the stock skyrockets. This could explode on any positive news due to the high short interest compared to float and the solid cash.
