Friday's Finalists

Of the seven symbols under consideration that survived the early rounds of screening (see "Friday's Prospects"),
  • Two returned to within their 20-day price channels and so failed to confirm their signals: ICF and THR.
  • Three have insufficiently high open interest on their options to allow for construction of a leveraged, hedged position: IMPV, AXDX and SCHN
  • One has an overly wide bid/ask spread on front-month at-the-money call options: ALNY.
That leaves EBAY, which broke above its 20-day price channel on Thursday, thereby producing a bull signal. I shall write an analysis of EBAY as a potential bull play under my shorter-term rules and post it prior to the closing bell today.
