On Tap For Thu Mar 1, 2007

The following are some of the NYSE stocks that I will be keeping an eye on and possibly trading tomorrow. Obviously there may be news on other stocks that come out overnight or in the morning, so I may be trading those stocks as well.

The list:
  • The following companies reported after the close today (these are not all the companies that reported after the close - just the ones I'm watching):

  • The following companies are reporting tomorrow morning (these are not all the companies reporting tomorrow - just the ones I'm watching):

  • Motorola Inc. (MOT) was active during after-hours trade after Carl Icahn filed to buy more MOT shares...MOT was up 3.5% in after-hours; MOT closed at $18.52
  • AK Steel Holding Corporation (AKS) was up strong today after it announced an agreement with it's union to end a year-old lockout...it closed near resistance and near it's 52-week high; AKS closed at $23.13
  • Worthington Industries Inc. (WOR)* was up 9.5% today on no news in particular (perhaps it's just a bounce from the day we had yesterday) and closed near some resistance; WOR closed at $19.91

Please note that those stocks denoted with a * and highlighted green indicate that they are on the SHO Pilot List which means you can short them on a downtick.

  • fwiw, WOR was up along with a lot of other smaller steel concerns as STTX received a buyout offer at a large premium, more than 50% above today's opening price. There were many sector members up by 6%-12% on the hope of further consolidation and the indication that there are large portions of the sector that may be undervalued, given the premium offer for STTX.

  • Biche,
    Thanks for your comments and thanks for the update. In fact, I would encourage other readers out there to help out in identifying why things were moving. There have been a couple times in the past when I just couldn't find news about a move and knowing the cause is a lot more re-assuring. Again thanks for the update and good luck to you and your trading!
