Himax Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIMX) finished higher on Friday after bouncing off of its 20-day EMA, a strong support region, that may represent the bottom, in the short-term technical chart. Investors continued to support the stock around this key support level, absorbing the waves of selling and pushing the share price higher. There were 3 attempts over the last weeks to knock the share price lower but, each and every time, buyers absorbed the selling and kept on buying. Looks ready to break $11 and soar to new highs.

The strong move in NewLead Holdings Ltd (NASDAQ:NEWL) shares was something that I tweeted on Friday's morning. If you were following my twitter account you would have gotten the tweet when the stock was trading at 1.08. It ended the day at $1.69 a gain of 52%, trading more than 3.8M of shares, well above its average volume. Technical chart above shows bullish sign with %K line on top of %D line and CMF is beginning to move up coinciding with the gain in momentum. If the stock can break through $1.81, we should see a strong follow through move.

Biogen Idec Inc (NASDAQ:BIIB) is inching closer and closer to another breakout move. The volume looks like it is picking back up and the MACD has crossed over. Look for a break above the 249 level to enter longs.

Vringo, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNG) A break of 2.83 should spike it to the 50-day exp moving average at $2.96. I will be watching very closely for news or unusual volume. The technical chart shows some signs of a possible bounce here due to the positive divergences (MACD, RSI, OBV) which often leads to short covering. The stock looks like it wants to run.
