Monday's Finalists

Eight symbols were up for consideration at the opening bell today. Six were found to be wanting.

Four failed confirmation by moving back within their 20-day price channels: FBHS, EMC, FFIV and FIBK.

Two had overly wide front-month at-the-money bid/ask spreads on calls: WBAI and EWG.

One had insufficient open interest on options to build a trade: FDO.

That leaves RTN, and I shall post an analysis later in the day.

Also, one symbol from my list of innovative companies, MMM, also has made it to the finals. I'll take a look at it in a post later today.
