AKAM - better-than-expected Q3 results and in-line Q4 guidance. buyers may want to target possible entry points at 26.20 to 26.50, an area that held as a late evening floor support Wednesday night and where there may be room to catch plus-side turns back toward 27 or above possibly approaching 30.
TQNT - beating Q3 expectations but also issuing Q4 guidance below Street estimates. shorts may want to target prospective entry points near 6.20 to 6.00, levels
that stood as a ceiling through the mid-session and second-half of Wednesday's
after-hours trade. So target the short early on then reverse directions as the stock begins to flatline and perk.
BMC - tumbled in ah's trade after profit falls 12%, but adds to stock buyback, e/r's actually beat estimations for the most part so I will be looking for a bottom reversal long play.
HGSI - long bias for perks off of 10, should gear and push through eventually, sooner rather than later, early weakness I will take long a9.75ish then r/g and should run.
LNG - pop'd on news, stock hit this exact same level months agao 10.8 - 11.35 area, should form as a top again, short bias, but letting it set up sideways first.
