Rubicon Technology, Inc.(NASDAQ:RBCN) - Over 32.80% or 4.8M of the shares available to trade in RBCN are in the hands of short sellers. Stock has fallen from over $10.70 to less than 9 bucks in recent weeks. As I said on twitter I like stocks with high short interest, especially if the stock is holding up strong above support. If RBCN does indeed bounce, we could see a significant short squeeze. From a technical standpoint, Friday's action turned my bias from neutral to bullish. Daily slow stochastic just crossed and the MACD is trying to cross up. I really like the look of this chart but I also would like to advise investors to be careful with earnings. Zacks has a Strong Buy rating on Rubicon Technology and the average consensus analyst price target is $11.89. The company has no debt, $2.29 a share in cash and a book value of 9.96. NOTE : The company will report earnings after the close on Tuesday and analysts are expecting a loss of 3 cents per share on revenue of $19.7 million.

No one was selling IDCC on Friday after a huge rally in the prior session, as it appears the shares now reside in the hands of long time holders. Someone still accumulating and no one wants to take profits, maybe some real big news around the corner !!! Friday’s high of $40.98 is resistance for the next upside move.
( click to enlarge ) The stock price movement in the last couple of days indicates that Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc (NYSE:TC) has formed a short-term bottom at $2.60. We can see a fresh wave of uptrend if the stock manages to close above the levels of $2.91. Although the stock did not perform well this year, we start to see now signals of rebound. The stock is approaching again the $2.99 level, which typically acts as resistance, so keep an eye on her for a possible breakout. Beyond that, the above technical daily chart shows a bullish MACD crossover and stochastics which indicate we have some more room to the upside.

The stock still showing bullish momentum in line with the sector and the volumes are supporting the current upmove. Near term support is now located at $8.32, as long as this level holds, I'd expect the uptrend to continue. Long-term investors may hold with a stop at $7.40
( click to enlarge ) Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) could move to the target zone at $9.57-$10. The positive outlook would be valid as long as the stock holds above the stop-loss level at $7.93. On daily chart, the technical indicators are supporting the bulls. The MACD is positive and above the signal line, while the RSI is also moving up and above its 50 level.
