  • Bridget: $HUM is breaking down and it looks like $UNH is about to follow. $AET and $HUM buyout deal blocked, Bloomberg reports.
  • Bridget: Notes: $GOOGL - making a earnings run $FB - also appearing to make a run higher, ER on 2/1 $BABA - breaking higher and reports tomorrow morning $VIRT - breakout on volume, ER on 2/2 $HD - breakout of a squeeze, nearing the 52 week high, ER 2/21 $MHK - also breakout from squeeze, ER on 2/9 $HUM and $AET deal is blocked, $CI, $ESRX and $CVS are now potential buyers $QCOM down on news of being sued by $AAPL
  • Bridget: $HUM $AET $MET - all have been pulling back or consolidating. Squeezing tight.
  • DrScience: $AET Seems that someone is expecting less upside risk than downside risk in the name. With earnings set for 1/31 and a judge's decision in February on whether the merger with Humana may proceed, Aetna JAN and FEB options implied volatility is around 50%. With an IV Rank at 100, volatility premium should be quite juicy (for an insurer), but the stock is in a volatility squeeze, and somebody is taking action to protect the downside by selling FEB 135C/110P Collar @ .15 CR over 7500 times. Other option trades however, like a FEB 120C/115P Combo @ 3.25 DB seem to think all is good in the hood.

I get a lot out of even the pauses, hesitations, emphasis etc.
  • Bridget: Seeing some profit taking in $AET and $HUM today
  • Bridget: Notes: The selling has stalled for another day, but still not a lot of buying. Looks like a short term bearish flag to me. Many stocks just seeing an oversold bounce (eg $EDU) Oil/Energy: $CEQP - breaking out on the weekly, slow mover for a buy and hold $WR - in a very tight squeeze, moving averages starting to roll over, looking toppy $HPE - breaking higher on the weekly. Still in a solid uptrend. $BWA - phase 3 of this breakout $DIS - now above $100, ready to move higher $DB - making a solid move higher on volume today after Italy news. $GMS - #IPO, new all time high but looking like a double top, ER on 12/13 Healthcare taking a breather: $UNH, $HUM, $AET $MRK

    7. $AET – also breaking out on weekly.
    8. $HUM – back at 2015 resistance.

    Shorts?: $XLP stocks
    9. $PEP – broken stock now. $100 support is in trouble.
    10. $KO – high volume selling.
    11. $K – bad press.
  • Bridget: Notes: $PBF, $TSO, $AEIS, $CWEI - big breakout on volume but still pulling back.

  • DAN: @debeers $AAPL $AET $WHR $ULTA We are replacing our fireplace box in the living room. We're getting the Samsung model. It's pretty high tech. Just hit a button and the fire starts. Sometimes, it stars without us hitting the button. Occasionally we can even call friends and family through the firebox. But typically, we just use our iPhones for that. 8-)

  • DAN: @StockMarketMentor $AET Aetna works. Also look at $UNH. These are stocks that I've reviewed recently a few times.
  • champ: @DAN - $AET at $119 and I'm long but $HUM is also moving up fast right behind AET this morning....what do you think...they also had a cross over....? I just took a Spec day trade position at $182.40 and I would like to swing part.
  • DAN: @champ $AET $HUM HUM works too....but just realize that resistance is just below $190. However, the healthcare plan stocks are really perking up.
  • champ: $HUM at $183.37 HOD don't know if its going to hold...volume is very strong over the daily avg long this morning. I'm also holding $AET $AGN and this ETF $LABU
  • DAN: This morning, several stocks we've been watching are rebounding off recent lows. A few stocks relating to the homebuilding industry are still in bullish patterns, such as $XHB, $BZH, $HOV and $HD. (In the case of Beazer, I'm pointing to a probable ...

  • bwcarnation1: $AET anyone know why it's down after hrs?
  • Trixie: $AET looks to be coming out consol around the 200ma. Out of an inside week.
  • Trixie: $AET inside day so far off the 8ema and oh so close to the 200m.. A reset closer to the 21em would seem like a nicer p/b to get on board..
  • champ: $UNH at $125.50 and $AET at $114.10 - Dan, talked about both of these health care stocks in his weekend Strategy Session in the Stock Watch session. I agree with his call position this morning....Spec swing longs in both....they are in the S&P Dow-30. Going to hang on to these for far both are working.

  • ag1: @GreenGhost $IBB $aet $ci $hum $uhs If this becomes a trend then their Prescription cost would go down I would imagine.
  • woodman: @ag1 $IBB $aet $ci $hum $uhs Merger-mania in the health insurance names. The following (3 of which you've mentioned) are working on their deals, seeking regulatory approval: (1) $AET & $HUM; (2) $CI & $ANTM.
  • ag1: @woodman $IBB $aet $ci $hum $uhs $AET $HUM $CI $ANTM That's all we need now is the Feds to allow 4 to become 2.
  • champ: $AET - Long around the low $117 trade on the upgrade after the conference yesterday. The only other stock that is green this morning on my position list is $NLY.
  • woodman: $HUM $AET $CI - just an fyi since all of these were mentioned in last night's video. The proposed mergers between $AET/$HUM and $ANTM/$CI are currently under congressional and DOJ review. My understanding is that congressional review is scheduled for tomorrow. Unsure whether -- and, if so, to what degree -- this may affect any of the stocks.
  • woodman: $HUM $CI - two health care plans with deals/offers to be bought (by $AET and $ANTM, respectively) but have been hit hard. But both appear to have been basing, HUM a little ahead CI in that department, and now may be turning the corner or thinking about turning the corner. FD- Long $HUM; watching $CI.
  • woodman: @DAN $HUM $CI - I mentioned $HUM earlier. The deal with $AET provides an opportunity. There are some anti-trust concerns but I think it will continue back up. Similar situation with $CI ($ANTM buying it), which I've written about in the past. Long both $CI and $HUM. HUM: CI:

  • 1Boston330: $CI. This one and some of its competitors, like $AET, and $ANTM are trending down. CI is approaching its 50 day ema at around 148.70. If this support holds and there is a bounce, I think that it is a buy, for its 50 ema has acted as support in the recent past, the CI weekly chart looks great, and the Health Care sector is the best performing sector this year and continues to perform well. Long common both $CI and $ANTM, currently underwater on both, but holding.
  • tommyc: Was looking at the $HUM $AET merger, CNBC reporting this morning HUM shareholders would be paid 125$ and .8375 AET shares for each share held. Looks like a 10 % take as long as AET doesn't fall below previous support/resistance around 105. What do you guys think?
  • janner0814: Stocks moving positive in portfolio: $AET $AGN $AMZN $EYES $HZNP $SRPT $TNA & $UVXY (the last two, were both low ball both pmkt fills). Biotech seems to be moving for some reason (not $BMY however), the bank stock: $AFSI in the portfolio, taking a breather.
  • debeers: @Jorma $CI/$AET-like the sailor says to the gal under the lamplight "I know what you are, I just don't know your price." $CI and $AET will both succumb to the urge to merge. I favor $AET but I own both and I don't usually duplicate similar holdings with the sole exception of $MHK/$HD because of the quality of their m anagements and the demographics. After the merger, I'll pick one of the HMO's.But, this is "found money" and its just right there on the street. Might I suggest you play janitor and sweep it up?

  • pcotton: #scanResults after market 4/16- revised after discussing with @GreenGhost. This is upper right trending, *bounce* after pullback to 20,50, or weekly 20. A recent flat pattern converging on uptrending average counts as a "pullback". The idea is to capture "upper right" plus a pullback and bounce. This is about half the scan results, the rest were rejected for looking like rollovers, consolidation, or just "could go down further". Comments appreciated, and thanks to GreenGhost for helpful criticism. $AET $AHS $ANSS $BSX $CONE $MPWR $SCI $SCMP $SEIC $TSS $ULTA
