Milestone Financial Investments LLC - They call me the Babe Ruth of calling my stock.
"My predictions and advice are in blue, anything in red is important to take note of."
  1. Ikanos (IKAN:$1.80,00$0.09,005.26%) reports Q2 revs of $55.6 mln, below the single analyst estimate of $58 mln on Thomson Reuters. GAAP loss was $0.20 per share while non-GAAP loss was $0.12 per share.
    • Misses Single Analyst Estimates for Q2 - Stock Plummeting in After-Hours       
    • Job Cuts To Take Place In 3Q, 4Q
    • 1.80 to 1.35
    • Drop, 1.35, got small buyers @ 1.5, 1.48, 1.37.
    • S/s this stock if you can, I think its important to look at the Job cuts coming in 3-4quarters.
  2. Transocean Ltd.'s (RIG:$53.5600,$3.1700,6.29%) second-quarter profit declined 12% as the offshore driller's utilization rate slid and revenue declined, although results benefited from an insurance gain related to the loss of the Deepwater Horizon rig.
    • BP is reluctant to pay many of the damages associated with the deadly explosion aboard the drilling contractor's Deepwater Horizon rig, even though it's bound to do so by contract. This could possibly effect RIG, negatively.

    • Sup 52.65, 52.84, 53.85
    • Res 53.23, 54.15
    • True range 52.65-54.15, these are levels that actually held, not that pop to for split seconds.
    • Long this stock at <52.65, Short >54.15, in the middle look to scalp. Long pops, short dips.
  3. Allstate Corp. (ALL:$28.6100,$0.0600,0.21%) reported better-than-expected quarterly results late Wednesday, as the auto and homeowners insurer suffered fewer catastrophe losses and made progress reorganizing some of its less profitable businesses.

    • 5.82 to 6.25
    • Sup 5.81, 6.11
    • Res 6.10, 6.23
    • True Range 5.81-6.23, can push this one through maybe, but its in break out area.
    • Long out the gate <5.81, guidance & volume is key to this running, and running it will.
      • Unless volume turns red and everyone starts selling/taking profits.

    • Res 57.83, 58.79
    • True Range 56.39-58.79
    • Significant gains made, I see uptrend all day Long >56.5area.
  7. Hot Topic Inc. (HOTT:$5.26,00$-0.10,00-1.87%) reported a greater-than-expected decline in July same- store sales, while Zumiez Inc.'s (ZUMZ:$18.03,00$0.19,001.07%) results topped analysts projections for the seventh time in eight months.

  9. Chipmaker (MIPS:$5.73, up6c, up1%) Technologies Inc posted a quarterly profit that handily beat Street expectations, helped by a more than two-fold jump in license revenue, sending its shares up 10 percent in trade after the bell.
    • Low volume on this one.
    • Pop to 6.50, came down to 6.10.
    • Like the long, but it came down from 6.5 significantly, could get some volume attention and send shares up. Its been uptrending, but the pop maybe too large and its settling.
