Globalstar: At the start of a New Impulse Higher

Globalstar, Inc. (NYSEMKT:GSAT), after a big price-volume surge in mid-December, pulled back a little this month, creating a falling wedge formation. The upper-line of that pattern was broken Monday on volume expansion.

This was a very good sign for a continuation of the trend, and I am looking for a retest of the recent highs around the 2.20 area.

Antonio’s Perspective: Exxon Mobil Corporation is consolidating after failing to Breakout Higher

Shares of Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) continue to consolidate above its major exponential moving averages, after failing to breakout above the critical resistance at 88.59 on Thursday.

Antonio’s Perspective: Technical Analysis of Netflix

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) was really amazing last week. Not only did NFLX start off the week with gains and a strong breakout but it maintained high levels throughout the entire week. The chart above of the stock shows clearly that “bulls” were able to overcome another attempt by “bears” to stall the sharp rally from the July low.

After a short pause in a sideways consolidation pattern between 95 and 100, during which the 50-day exponential provided a good support, it broke out upwards. The stock rebounded nicely on Friday after touching the lower line of this bull flag and with a positive market next week i think this stock should be moving higher.

Technical daily chart shows very strong bullish sign. First of all, the stock is trading above both 50-day and 200-day moving averages with both moving averages pointing upwards. Then the daily MACD is rising above “0” also indicating a buy. In addition, KD line and ADX still show the stock is on the positive swing.As long as the stock stay above the $100 price level, the bullish scenario still intact.

I want to remind all readers of Stockal that NFLX is often volatile and a fast moving stock, so I suggest everyone to book profits quickly around the key resistances lines and please don’t get greedy.

Antonio’s Perspective: Technical Analysis of Blackberry

For this weekend’s post I bought a well-known company that everybody knows that I have a long-term investment on it. This was one of the rare cases where I put some of my savings on a long-term investment specifically when I saw a familiar name taking the control of the company as CEO, that guy was John Chen. Most people don’t know nothing about this gentleman, but I recommend everyone to google the company name “Sybase” to know more about the skills of the guy as a business man.

Some of you, will think it’s impossible to see the same scenario on Blackberry, but I would like to point out that the new CFO of Blackberry is now Steven Capelli, who worked with John Chen at Sybase. Both also worked together at Pyramid Technology, a company that was sold to Siemens.  The life is made of coincidences, but this film I already saw in the past. As a shareholder I want to maximize always my investment and I truly believe that will get it here as well. I think Blackberry could be the next big sale for John and his buddy.There has been chatter about a BlackBerry sale for months/years, but with Steven in the team, the puzzle is now complete and the rumors could turn to reality. Keep in mind, the company is now financially stable with a lot of cash and a tremendous patent portfolio. Moreover, it owns QNX,  one of the most popular operating systems for in-car infotainment systems. I could write a lot more about Blackberry, Joh Chen and whatever, but my vision is clear in this small introduction.  Well, now is time to focus my attentions in the technical chart above.

The stock has made an awesome run since mid of September, but once again the rally stalled around 8.30 price level, which has been a tough level to regain and hold all year long. On daily technical chart, price is trading above all major exponential moving averages, MACD is rising in buy zone, while RSI is around the 60 level well under concerned overbought levels. This is indication of bullishness to continue.

The fact that the 50-day exponential moving average is also above the 200-day exponential moving average (golden cross), the trend is considered upward. Considering all above factors, the probability of a breakout is higher. A close above 8.36 would be required to turn the medium-term bias significantly toward buying trades. Definitely on watch.
