After a 3-month short squeeze and bogus restructuring news releases, Sears Holdings (SHLD) is once again showing weakness. With major players Walmart, Target and Amazon.com showing strong sales, Sears and Best Buy have been getting clobbered.
Shutterfly the provider of online photo printing services posted better than expected earnings and rallied 8% today. This move put it over the $26.00 resistance neckline and the 50 day moving average. With 20% of the float short we could see a move over $30.00 in coming weeks. With a stop at $24.50 we have limited downside on this trade.
After 5 months of consolidation Hudson City Bancorp is attempting a break above $6.25 resistance. We took a long position at $6.17 and have set our stop limit at $5.89 if the market shows weakness. Hudson City is set to release earnings January 16th and could see a small move higher into that announcement.
A 3-year chart of Idenix Pharmaceuticals shows a clear breakout above $5.50. The biotech company focuses on the discovery of drugs for the treatment of viral diseases. With 7.50% of the float held short and solid looking chart Idenix should squeeze higher.

With several Japanese auto manufacturers weakened by climatic events, Ford Motors (NYSE: F) may have got the break it badly needed. Both Honda and Toyota motors have been weakened from the destruction overseas. Coincidentally, Ford and General Motors have seen some buying activity on speculation of increased market share.
Hercules Offshore (NASDAQ: HERO) is one driller with the right ingredients for a big move in share price. It has a low share float and high short interest (7%) providing explosive potential. With oil over $100 per barrel we believe drillers are poised for huge growth going forward.
