Bullish Stocks to Watch Friday
 ( click to enlarge )
Rare Element Res Ltd (AMEX:REE) looks strong enough to move forward. As expected, the stock broke up through the resistance at $13.85 on huge volume of over 1.202 Million shares. At this stage, further rally is still possible in next several days. The breakout signals a continuation of the prior advance. Bulls have the near-term technical advantage and gained fresh upside momentum today.  Next resistance levels to watch are $15.95 and $17.92. The stock has the potential for a strong follow through, so watch it closely on Friday.

It is clear that Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) wants to move higher again, but too much caution right now. The stock reacted to the $16 mark over the last two trading sessions and has suffered a small correction as shown in the chart above. Back above $16 would revive the bullish case and open the way for further gains towards $16.55 in the first instance. Short term support for the stock is in the $15.23 to $15 region. While the stock price is correcting there are no clear signs of a top forming in the daily charts as of yet. Indicators are favoring longs with both positive momentum indicator and positive MACD above the zero line. A move above $16.51 would mark a medium-term breakout. Long-term investors can hold Ford with a stop at $14.40.

Elan Corporation, plc (NYSE:ELN) continues to move higher and it still looks strong on its daily chart. I raised resistance to $8.26,  which was the high of April 2010. Technically, the stock has broken all medium term resistances and appears strong. ELN is now on the overbought level, so this means a possible correction is near. This may give us a chance to jump in on the stock when it moves lower. ELN is a stock to keep an eye on for awhile.
