DJIM hold/hit list #13

Back in October, we stated that November is seasonally a strong quarter for small caps.     Near the end of October, we stated that we just could not wait till the small cap earning season to start.    Well, we aren't disappointed, so far.       Maybe  it seems that all we had to do is to come back from a 8 month vacation and trade from November till February.    Now that would just be too easy plus we could have missed all the DJIM action from late August..just go to the Journal Archive.  The truth is, without the hard grind of the summer, without going through the emotional roller coaster with the market from the first trading day of the year, none of us would stay as focused, or sharp when the time mattered the most.     Well, here we are now.   We have had literally a stream of awesome small cap action last few days and we are trying our best to make the most out of it.    It means all out for us.    Folks, if you hadn't committed much time, energy, capital or effort into the market last few days, we'd say you are gonna be sorry a few months down the road.     Here are some plays we really like that showed up last little while...

ATNI, this is definitely not a flashy stock like some of the other heavy hitters.    It has very good earnings and it moves in stealth mode.   Before you know it, this thing can move 20% without making any kind of headline.    It broke out on Friday and we are keeping a close eye on this one. We added back. Friday looked like the day it would break all those candle wicks on the daily.

GMKT, this stock had a very powerful move on its earning day and it smelled lots of institutions stepping in to bid it up.    A very sexy business and a dominant player in its area and with the holiday coming up, we think this one is gonna be in play for a while.

DLB, wow what a report this one had.   Ok, this isn't exactly a small cap but man you gotta give those guys a thumb up on their execution.   It took out multi year high, literally in one day of trading.    Now it may not give you another 33% gain day anymore but we bet it caught lots of people's attention on Friday.

Reports Q4 (Sep) earnings of $0.22 per share, $0.11 better than the Reuters Estimates consensus of $0.11; revenues rose 29.4% year/year to $102.1 mln vs the $83.8 mln consensus. Co issues upside guidance for FY07, sees EPS of $0.83-0.92 vs. $0.75 consensus; sees FY07 revs of $420-450 mln vs. $405.67 mln consensus.

MEK, it made it to IBD #5.   How will trade from now on?   We think it could trade with the group but with a better beta action.   Other plays we also consider in the same genre include BTJ ALY FTK. 

TRT, ah ha!    This one is not an unfamiliar name, far from it.     The latest quarter simply confirms the status of the stock, it's not going to be a micro cap anymore.   Bring it on Zeff boy!.  Nothing new to say, just scroll down our pages or go to the archives to get your TRT fill.

EDU, didn't we say this one could make some easy money?  Lol  Ok, nothing is easy in this business.   What this stock did the last few days, is simply giving back to all the believers and followers of DJIM site. Same as TRT, you can find your fill of EDU write ups as it seemingly has been with us since day one.....3 rides now!..Recycle, recycle we say. If EDU doesn't cut it one day....MR has picked up the slack and vice versa.  Late this week MR hit a new high 20.57. DJIM's Super Ninja's are sure to provide more excitement.

FSYS, this play is new and we think it can get some legs out of its report. We put an eye out on it early Friday morning in MC, its action perked up and we entered.Reported Q3 EPS of $0.22 vs -$0.63 in 3Q05; (est.$0.13c), revs rose 13% YoY to $55.4 mln vs.44.1 mln est. Co' raised 2006 rev guidance to at least $210 mln, up from previous guidance of $200 mln.  This alternate fuel segment needs some new trading blood, maybe Fuel Systems Solutions will be it.

AAON, we introduced this earning gem Wednesday morning. Not only did it take out the $25 we spoke of, it took on $26 Friday. Definitely, a A-Team member!

GLDN, we also introduced back some Russian blood with this Telecom/Internet provider. Volume has really picked over October and into early November with its earning release. 35% revenue growth, 40% net income YOY, 16% revenue, 7% net sequential growth.

RIMM, yep...we raised the RIMM flag as it became the 11th 25+% move in 12 weeks of DJIM. The action Thursday left it with a little toppy action. Every other day they seem to have a need to strike a blow into RIMM, Friday it was MOT's deal with Good Tech. This has been going on endlessly and RIMM just keeps making new highs. Nothing is wrong with RIMM for those wanting to play it out further, but we feel there are better chances of a finding another 25% move elsewhere...faster. We'll still keep a close eye on it as it's in the Constitution of Canada to do so;)

EFUT, is one we are trading as the Yahoo's are all over it. Definitely not for those that plan to have many bathroom breaks during the day.

It was just on Halloween that we took a cautious stance as many of the DJIM stocks felt toppy, by the close of Friday November 3rd we started to use up the cash with 6 or 7 buys. The names are changing, growing fast and furious during the past week. Buy the strength and don't sit on the UCTT's that are clearly lagging the uptrend.  Honestly, what are you waiting for?  You also have plenty of oil/energy names to rotate in and out of depending on the oil picture. If you have your DJIM list close by and have created a watchlist/buy list of these stocks, last week was a very fruitful one.  For more DJIM names read the commentary of the past week plus glance over the charts for ideas to trade.

Jon/ Demi



Houston, we've got a problem... CAAS, China Automotive Systems Inc, EFUT, eFuture Information Technology Inc,

We couldn't go to the bathroom today.  Literally!  . plus, should we be writing our note in Chinese?.   Oh just in case anyone hasn't noticed, there was not one, but TWO, 40%+ gainer for DJIM today.    EFUT/ CAAS ...Lock these up as 2 more DJIM benchmark 25% + moves.  As we have stated and stressed during the weekend, this is the kind of time where you make your double digit gains in your portfolio and clean it up around turkey time.     For a couple days back in October, we were joking that this November may not be compared to the Novembers of the past.   Boy oh boy, we definitely got more than we bargained for last few days.    And, we are not even half way through November.     Ok on to some obvious and not so obvious plays...

EFUT.jpgEFUT, we were fortunate enough to start trading this one at the beginning of Friday, about 13 points ago! . You've made a pretty penny even if you bought the close with us Friday when we were adding.  Simply put, we haven't seen a mover like this for quite some time now.    This in some way rivals the TZOO of the past.     Breathtaking, stunning and spectacular finish.   Can this gap up tomorrow and pull another good move?   It's possible and we think it's more than probable that it will.    The only drawback about this one is that you have to be there on every tick, literally.

caas.jpgCAAS, this one was noted in pre-mkt off earnings and frankly it's not a bad thing just to get your feet in this one in the early going.    What it did during the last half an hour is another display of EFUTistic move.    By the way, both CAAS and EFUT had one very ingredient in common, tiny float.   Once again, gap candidate as we pointed out before the close.  The action AH is the gap at work, this is what we were expecting. The same reasoning behind introducing EFUT 10 minutes before close on Friday. There is nothing wrong with adding to strength, we almost always do it near the close.  Sometimes the strength turns into a nice move the next day, sometimes into a crazy run like seen in EFUT today.

DLB +3% / CMT, good follow-up from both stocks.

RIMM/BIDU , so RIMM had its move and now we think BIDU may get its turn.   

other stocks exhibiting strength from the DJIM bin include AAON 5%, ATNI  RVBD 4% SINA 3% DIVX  GROW  FTEK SRVY.

MEK made a nice recovery, still be careful with this segment now.  Go with stronger sec...china stocks


DJIM index outperformed

most of the day big time....You know you're in a groove when AH a DJIM neglected shoots up 20% as you're about to call it a day. Only this afternoon TRMS was setting up after a great EPS. Everything else has been so hot, this one has been placed to the side as it consolidated.  We thought TRMS had the earnings and a story to go with it, today management decided to reveal a new direction...the story behind the new found EPS strength....You also know things are going for you when you're not scouring for the next EPS gem, pre market or AH. Why?...Because we already have them for ourselves and DJIM readers since their first trade after earnings!. Has anyone noticed AAON (nice day), ATNI are probably up 20% since getting space on DJ Journal.  Not bad in a week to two.  A lot of you love the juice of the runners, the EFUT, the CAAS's but for a complete healthy diet, we strongly recommend only one thing around here ( besides not holding into earning).  That is spread yourself out a bit, one day you'll get flushed by a runner and you won't have anything to buy these crawlers with. To us they are crawlers, to the funds that accumulate ...these are sound investments.  The daily speed might not be there for you, but the gains of 25+% in a month, a quarter is nothing to sneeze at. We doubt many places can offer you the experience of finding, trading the momentum stocks as well as the ones your financial advisor might find suitable for your family book. The best thing is we hate "RED" and avoid all to see such in one of our buys. The worst thing we could ever do is procrastinate, its not extensive DD'ing, its the action, the volume that gets us in most stocks. The time lapse between finding something we like and the time we pull the trigger, is quite short... but this doesn't mean chasing a stock without getting the 'feel for it.  This is how we avoid the "RED".  It is also the confidence in seeing and doing it all over again. This is the same confidence that rubs off on many readers of DJIM that have been with us for what is probably 3 years now.  BT is one of them we're happy to say. Charts paint a history, the stocks characteristics are embedded. This is why we recycle,(TRT most recently) our hitlists/ watch lists rarely take up more than one screen to get the job done.     So what happened today........Confidence, experience told us we'd have probable gaps for EFUT and CAAS...we've seen it and crazily feel it sorry to have no life...Its never too late to buy in the last 10-15 minutes, it is actually the best time for us in adding a position.  CAAS was $10.30 or so when we said a gap was probable, a gap is not the thing you see only in the morning open.  It is a stock running to 11.70 AH as well.   EFUT, we were confident in putting it up back to back on closes at DJIM.  We said this was something else, tonight we're glad to say its someone else's.  This is not the bread and butter of DJIM, we wrestled the idea of even mentioning it Friday..but felt comfortable with the gap idea end of day.  A $2 track or lotto ticket is all we would place on it short term as of this afternoon(MC).  Incredibly the insanity of watching, dealing with EFUT didn't take away from watching, trading other DJIM stocks. The super ninjas muscled out their cheaper cousins, the C-team of Chinese stocks. EDU, MR outclassed the bunch and finished the day with NCH's..each up about 10% at the highs. There was GROW getting the 'volatility' management just loves;)...DLB a quiet 3%, TRT unfortunately gave up the highs..guess its best to see the charts for the rest of the story of the happenings around here...oh AXR recently mentioned as part of DJIM A-team with AMIE, APH (back to $69), we were a little too full today to enjoy this ride, hope some of you caught it!


DJIM- Just one reminder....

Take some profits!    That's what we have been doing with some of our holdings today, bet you were too. Those gains in GROW, EDU off the breaks are hard to ignore and not pocket.  Why now and why not tomorrow or yesterday?    Well, in fact, we have always been taking profit-points here and there and taking profit has been a big part of our trading strategy.   Simply put it this way, when you have millions of dollars of merchandise, the most logical action is to take profit into strength.    At least that way, you'd appreciate the kind of work you've done during the last little while.     Ok moving on with some action...

EFUT/CAAS,  Ok, in case you haven't noticed, these aren't the typical DJIM holdings and they belong to the "euphoric trading arena".   Those that remembered the mkt in the hay days, this kind of play isn't uncommon.   The key is, know what you are dealing with.    CAAS gave a second jolt yesterday into the $11's, everyone had time to exit off Tuesdays premkt watch from as low as 8's.  EFUT, like we said last night...somebody else's now. It was here since the riot started, not our problem now.

GMKT, it took a few days of consolidation to get a move like today.   If you think the move is unconvincing, don't sweat it.   The stock is definitely on a right path and use the dipping opportunity to trade this one higher.

EDU, very very powerful move the whole week and again, we are letting some go here as per note in DJIM alerts.   This is not to say that we think it's done moving up but we just want to protect what's already ours.  MR has earnings in the morning, so we have let this go the past 2 days in reaction to this event.  We're sure these will be back in full on our books, shortly.

GROW, whatever the management did in their recent cc, it's working.   Maybe the stock will get to a level for a split to make sense.     Again, this one has a tendency for pullback so we are trading with the action accordingly. A little extended off the break at 38's(earning day high), so we reduced quiet a bit.

FSYS/SRVY, these two perked up a little and are setting up nicely and we are watching closely.

TWLL, though no complain about the chart move here, the only question we have is why it didn't move the last few days when the mkt was basically making new highs every hour. Like TWLL's today, we're just not that excited with the most recent breaks in the likes of UCTT, SNCR  and think its a good time to reduce exposure in some of DJIM tech names.

USAP, this one had a very nice report a while back but we didn't bother playing it.   It broke out today and we are following with some action too.    THS, the same. 

Order of the day for us was definitely profit taking, we have taken some profit more aggressively today than the last couple of days.   Since we've had just so many winners in our accounts recently, and with new ones popping up every day, it'll eventually get to a point where we can not look after each play constantly and at all times.   So in order to avoid a situation where a general mkt pullback occurs and you are still heavy with your positions, we decided that selling some huge winners here, aggressively,  is a good idea.  There are new set ups forming and we are looking for those lagging a bit to make another move.  We're not negative on the market, we just think we all should take an early Xmas bonus when it's handed to you.


DJIM hold/ hit list #14

Up until this point, we have to say that we got more than we bargained for during the last few weeks.    Market has been extremely good and we had no shortage of good runners and a few super runners.   A quick glance at BT's charts, DJIM list#13 from last weekend and you see what a week DJIM had.  We introduced some new blood at the open during the week, EXLS, ZOLL to go with the GMKT, EDU, DLB, GROW, EFUT, AAON, ATNI already on the DJIM list from last weekend. These days are the reason why we trade, this is also why we have no problems going 100% cash when our gut tell us to.  Animal instincts, pile a stash for the harsh weather.  Some of these DJIM stocks definitely need to consolidate but new opportunities are popping up left and right,  so it's best we/ you do not have your cash wrapped in something not participating or moving. Thanksgiving trading week could add some fuel to the fire, this is why we've kept the charts of EFUT, CAAS up for more trading opp's...maybe this is the week...You see when the gnomes leave for turkey, the retail kids like to take charge of the house on a few names and run them up...basically taking a turkey and stuffing it with MOMO for a day or two.   A good chance is the theme of the C-team, China stocks continuing on.  Many of them provide a nice float to move.  You spend lots of time trading and learning and going through countless emotional roller coaster throughout years of dealing with this market.   Thankfully, a month like this would make all the hard work you've done in the past seem worthwhile.      We are going to highlight just a few stocks that stood out going into the weekend concentrating on the Asian theme.

JST, we played this stock a while ago and someone lit a rocket boost behind it on Friday.    Is this all because of the asian theme?  We definitely think so to go with the earning thrown in.    What may added fuel to JST is the IBD rating and it's not a total surprise to see it show up on IBD 100 this weekend, #73.  Unlike the other IBD plays floating around in the last few weeks, MEK BTJ ALY,  we think JST may have some more momentum to go.   Why?   JST is not oil dependent, and it's in a sexy region!  This is something we pointed out Monday, a look from the oils to China stocks, well now its spread to Japan a bit.  But most importantly from the trading perspective, it's being discovered by momentum crown based on its volume on Friday.    Ok, so momentum doesn't go up one day and die down the next day and we definitely don't think JST is one of those one day wonder either.    How are we gonna play this one?   The bias is definitely on long side and we will be trading it aggressively. We are also seeing a trade around CHDX and BIDU, primarily we are interested in the CHDX action.

MR, if the earning reaction isn't exactly explosive, then we can say that we are glad that the earning thing is over.    MR went up on its own Friday and had a NCHigh after being mentioned early in DJIM Alerts.  We like this one very much and added on its advance. Again...why hold a stock into earnings, better to have free cash and possibly dig up a EXLS the same day. You can always buy the MR back, we've been doing it since introducing it late September at 16.40. It was a frustrating stock at times but now up 30%.... it's all forgotten with the possibility of more on the horizon!

GMKT, hit $25+ Friday after getting a DJIM headline November 9th has provided many opp's to enter in the 19's-20 since. Late last week buying the dips was a buying opportunity as well.  The stocks price and daily volume keep riding the tide... higher.

TRT, this might as well be a foreign stock as it does the majority of its business in Asia. The stock has been in a tight range since exploding off earnings with DJIM in tow from the $12's. The thin market might be the right recipe for another leg up this week. Although a quick dip to the 9ema is a possibility with TRT, a  potential buy point again. The other choice is to buy a confirmed breakout which is not far off either. Volume is key here, both ways. You want it slow and easy to the 9ema, you want it hard and fast into the high.


Thanksgiving week...

Traditionally, this has always been a good week for traders.   With a shortened trading week and many people left for holiday, there's really not a lot of action going on, unless of course you knew which buttons to push.    This has always been traditionally a good week for small caps.   Less trading volume means the retail traders can push some thinly traded or low float plays around.    Well, we think there's not so much of a difference between a retail trader or an institutional trader anymore.  You can either be a professional retail trader or an amateur institutional trader.  Either way, we all balance each other out in the heat of the action.      Today we had some consolidation among some of the runners from last week and we also had some new breakouts and follow through from some plays as well.    It's never a dull day in November's as we say.    Here are some highlights...,  it's definitely one of our favourite stocks today as basically the whole Chinese theme is just getting more momentum one play after another.   This one definitely broke out today and we added a few to anticipate some further upside. This one was a DJIM alert mention as a watch off earnings last week and again today.

GROW, talk about a stock that just wouldn't give up any gains.   Once the traders figured it wouldn't go down, the natural instinct is to bid it up, without hesitation.

EFUT, what a late day run it had.   If you are quick enough, then you'd probably caught a couple of points off this already.  It's interesting to see how this one plays out tomorrow, but the probability is high that it'll have a run some point over the next few days.    Again, this play has absolutely nothing to do with fundamentals, purely demand vs. supply,  traders against traders kind of deal.   We pointed EFUT out last night as a trademark play for this week.

EXLS, we are using the opportunity today to add back some on weakness.   We feel that it's a matter of time this one gets some good action going forward.

ZOLL made a move to last weeks highs before retreating...hey its TKG week and you can get nice advances on average volume all over the place.

RIMM, the big firms are trying to outdo each other. Last week, it was UBS with a $160, today it was MLynch with a $165 target.

TRT, If this was a reco. before the open and if you bought the reco. you really have to question the timing and if you're being toyed with .  Unfortunately the same that chase ruin the day. This was the case here as TRT ran out of gas.

What's so odd about this week is that we are actually coming into this week with some huge gains off this market... it really makes this week kind of unimportant in a way.   But of course, there are always those who haven't made most out this market last couple of months and are dying to make it up somehow this week!


DJIM recap..

So far the blueprint for this holiday week is quite the Green when it comes to DJIM small caps. We spoke of EFUT possibly being good material for holiday trading and it hasn't disappointed as far as excitement goes and huge gains since Mondays open.  Does it have more in store?. Who knows!. The real fighters off DJIM have to be GROW and JST, up 8% and 7% plus respectively today with NCH's. If you were patient, you probably got yourself a decent entry on JST without chasing its lights out on the open yesterday. Not far behind has to be the GLDN in DJIM alerts today mid 39's when volume was a quiet 30K. This Golden baby didn't only perk up, it foamed up to $41 and a clean breakout on 308K volume.  Again..the point of alerts is to show a stock of interest to us,  it isn't a license to buy because we mentioned it.  So everyone is into the momo this week, that's okay DJIM crawlers go the back door and put up another 5% as in the case of ATNI, $27.58. Ain't that chart a beaut for this DJIM stock from $21 this month. Paste this one on the wall of 25+% moves on the DJ Journal Archives wall....right next to MR which made a nice move to close at $22 today.  

A note on TRT, we pointed out the possibilities on the weekend. One was a volume break over the high, this didn't happened. The other possibility happened but it wasn't the slow and easy walk to 9ema, we would consider for a play. We noted a few things last night we didn't like about the stock and its surroundings, todays action really didn't come as a surprise.  Now is not the time to chase 9ema bounces, there is plenty of other plays forming.   Hard to tell now how TRT will react.    

Be smart, the market is only going to get thinner as we head into Wednesday trading.  If your stock exceeds expectations it might only be an illusion and not your trading prowess, same goes don't freak and SOS DJIM if the stock of choice does not meet your expectations...the spreads, the volume allow for a lot of trickery as we finish off the week.....

CMT mentioned around these parts since earnings,  put in a nice candle for the day. Let's see what this close brings tomorrow, if it holds early this type of thinster making a NCH has the makings of something that could bring traders in.

Chinese stocks... the likes of BIDU, GRFF, HMIN are definitely across a few trading desks this week providing a volatile trade.


Three and a half hrs left....

Still 3.5 hrs left to feast on this holiday trading you have it in you?.

Wednesday premarket we noted JCG, J Crew which has been undergoing a turnaround since 2003 with a new CEO.  JCG came out with stellar earning and raised "G". We're not big on trading retailers but this one had a nice chart and the flavor of IPO still over it as well.  Hey, its not Limited Brands inc, (LTD) that we could do some serious due diligence work on over the holiday up here in Toronto... but with XMAS shopping season around the corner, this preppy clothier might stick around the DJIM books if it continues to gain interest. Of course, its Black Friday weekend so you have that to consider all the upcoming news into a potential retail play for your book.  The stock traded up to $38 AH's Tuesday, the open dipped into the high $36's..a surprise with nothing really behind it, this definitely looked like a buy opportunity to us..  Soon the stock picked up and it was not too much later that we entered as it started to catch some air. There are 100's of releases this time of the year, we are selective in putting things up you might want to look at during extended trading hours, DJIM alerts as well.  JCG was one you should have been watching early on with us.   CAAS's crazy one day run recently might have given you reason to check back into this Market Chat feature.


Another highlight was the move in the heavily followed DJIM stock MR.  Not much you could say about it except it managed to tack on another $1.50 after being alerted to with the follow up on JCG in the morning.

CMT, this late day alert Tuesday in the very low $9's put in a very good day closing in on $10. The chart looks excellent for this steady mover and it's IBD #'s are getting interesting enough to get some attention in our books.

GROW, GMKT continue to provide the best trading opportunities while climbing higher, buying the dips is not going out of style with these G's.

RVBD is providing the best opp in the recently followed DJIM tech names and is really the only one we have interest in trading...DIVX might be shaping up but the SCNR, TWLL, TRT, UCTT need further consolidation and/ or a breakout for us to get interested again.  Be careful tomorow, false breakouts may occur on small volume, best to pocket some gains because they can evaporate quickly come next week.  

EFUT, CAAS are teasing and might be playable tomorrow again, we just wouldn't be holding them into the weekend.




..wake up Nasdaq...

We are not going to overkill the market in this late stage. Instead of reacting to every economic number and every fed blurb that is toying with investors, we are simply sticking to our weekend words.  We are looking for the easy play, the easy money without being nicked.  The short term bet, trade is on and speculation/momentum is what we are after.  The market made a strong reversal yet the Nasdaq still finished red on the Fed speak.  We're glad to see the strong rebounds in a few DJIM names, but we are not going out and buying the dips aggressively.  Instead, we will wait and see if many of these get can get back to recent highs and then decide.  At the moment we are into plays like the ESCL.  How long you stay with one of these is not the question, it is how much profit you can get from them.  We traded ESCL a few months back close to this price and thought that  'crazy'  had the same potential today.....its' simply in its genes!.  Last time this craziness extended into day 2, despite a nice run from alert time at $7 and a few pennies to over $9, we've kept some in case the loopy money has further to go.

The other buy was FFHL, an IPO from China with a very nice float of just over 3mln.  Considering this is becoming retail traders week heading into the holiday, we were anticipating some of their memories of EFUT to kick in...ours did!.  We can't make predictions and the EFUT's come around once a blue moon, but if this FFHL is a fraction of EFUT would be the easy money we are after now. We watched it trade with a few other IPO's today and had no problem giving out a alert in the low 10's. Usually an IPO has some turning over to do before it makes a move, we were hoping it skips this step and gets momo early. Judging by the AH trading in the mid 11's, a rarity for a IPO...this might be getting some attention tomorrow. Hopefully this will have a longer shelve life than ESCL.

There was some comical action today...unfortunately it wasn't for those that had their stops knocked out. The offering was quite small even for a JST share count and the money was going to a good cause...expansion. The wash job to $19+ was a joke.  Many of DJIM readers probably sold off yesterday and missed the sweet dip opportunity..we did for the most part.

The dip buying could be quite nice as seen in POWL  AXR especially,  but we are concentrating on those still playing around highs if adding shares.............OPTM was one today as it closed with a NCH.


Lets talk about FFHL tonight...

Obviously, FFHL is an attention grabber today and there's no doubt that many of us are involved trading them.    So what we gonna do tonight is have a question/answer type of format to hopefully address most of the question concerning the FFHL play today, to the best of our knowledge.    So here we go...

so what happened to the stock during the last 30 min.? -  Do we really need an explanation on that?   The simple fact is, it was dumped!

So how did FFHL close today?  - For a momentum stock, it closed pretty crappy.   As a matter of fact, it looked pretty ugly near the end.

Is this kind of action common for this type of play? - Yes, it's very common for this type of play.   You have to get used to it and know what you are dealing with and therefore set the trading strategy accordingly.

So why did FFHL go up at first place? - Well, we think it's a combination of this co. being a recent Chinese IPO and low float that got picked up by many momentum traders, including us.

Does this run-up have anything to do with the fundamental of the co.? -  Nope, absolutely not.    The same kind of traders who trade these are the ones who would also trade EFUT, MAMA, etc.    This kind of a play is about as speculative as it gets.    This one is probably on many trading forums' agenda today.

How does the volume look today? -  We thought it looked pretty toppy.   Twice the float has been churned and stock closed way down from the opening price.   Typically this is not a good sign, even though the stock is still not that far from its IPO price.

Does it mean that FFHL's run is over? -  We don't know!  At this point, probably not.    We think the easy money should've been made already.   Then again, stock behaviour often surprises the most seasoned traders.

How does DJIM approach this play at this point? - well, the bottom line is that we started playing at $10, and so should many of you.   we've locked some big gains today and will watch this one closely for any further development.     As always, we'd let others take the risk and battle it out  while we just wait for the easy and obvious setups to come up.      We are looking for a break of $14.80 for a flip and over $15.75 for some serious momentum.   

The conclusion, Don't get Greedy!    The fact that you found them at 10 bucks here should not keep you from being trapped in this play, ever!    Imagine yourself finding this play out just today at $15?      Also, FFHL, like EFUT ESCL.... are not typical DJIM bread and butter play.     We play them because the opportunities are there but we do  let readers know the RISK involved in trading them.    These are super speculative plays and momentum works both way and the stock can reverse on any day at anytime.    This definitely requires, in our opinion, a full time traders' attention to trade them successfully.   This is the reason why we also don't give out sell alerts on these as things just happen too fast.    But since we do give out our buy alerts early enough, there's no reason even for a rookie to make a buck or two out of these wild plays.

Ok, tomorrow is gonna be another day and hopefully it won't be a dull day.    We are keeping our eyes on many familiar Asian and Russian plays to see any sign of further follow through.
