Wait For Opportunity In Vocus

By Michael Gable 

Last week was a positive one for markets, but we remain cautious and do not expect them to kick on from here. We still expect a revisit of 5200 for the S&P/ASX 200 Index and a potential drop towards 5100. The US markets in our opinion, still look weak. There are some bright spots however and our SAI trade from several weeks ago has received a takeover offer, representing a 40 per cent premium to our entry price, excluding the recent dividend. It is one of those stocks that 90 per cent of people have not heard of, let alone contemplated investing in. This further confirms our opinion that opportunities always exist, you just need to spend the time looking for them.

In today's report we have an updated chart on Vocus Communications ((VOC)) which is one stock that we like but have been keeping an eye on before pulling the trigger.

Our report on VOC three weeks ago was a positive one, but our charting commentary suggested we be patient and wait for cheaper levels. We were eyeing $7 as an entry point but the stock quickly fell through that. Given the severity of the move, we expect that any short-term bounce would be sold into. Resistance is therefore likely to be strong here in the mid $6's. Over time, we expect the shares to drift back down towards $5.50 again. This may take several weeks but buyers should remain patient and wait for those cheaper levels. So our view on VOC is Neutral for the short term in respect of the chart, but we are still positive on the company's future and our charting view would turn positive again down near $5.50.
