    Ticker:  Research In Motion (BBRY)

    Strategy:  Long Trade

    What I Am Looking At:

    • Outperformance on a year-to-date basis, +12 percent
    • Tentative mid-March launch of new Blackberry Z10 phone in United States
    • Current 50 percent Fibonacci retracement (from September low to January high) coincides slightly above the 0 percent year-to-date level and the rising 80-day moving average which could all be supportive
    • Also, huge put open interest for 3/8 and 3/15 expirations reside at the 13-strike price, could add to the support case
    • Tightening Bollinger Bands could portend an imminent move
    • Short-term, targeting the January high which coincides with triple the 52-week low
    • Long-term: round number target could be $20 level
    • High short interest (28 percent of the float) could be a tailwind for shares on potential short-covering
    • 27 out of 31 analysts rate the shares a “hold” or worse, potential for future upgrades

    Strategy:  Buy on rebound from 80-day moving average, targeting January high
