Sector Scan: Computer Stocks

These names are good candidates for short-term or options trading


My Power Options system identifies the best candidates for option trading or short-term stock trading, and this week it’s showing some interesting opportunities in computer stocks. Whether you’re interested in shorting the laggards of the sector or playing calls on the winners, these names are both volatile and liquid, two important characteristics of profitable short-term and options trading.


This is one of the strongest stocks under surveillance with my Power Stocks system.

  • Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI)

Reestablished Buy

This stock has confirmed its upward trend after a temporary pullback. Such a bounceback is one of the most reliable buy signals.

  • 3M Co. (NYSE:MMM)


This stock is in an upward trend, but is temporarily leveling or pulling back.

  • Cisco (NYSE:C)

Strong but Topping

These stocks were in upward trends, but have leveled after a dramatic advance. Watch for these stocks to break through resistance—that will be your signal to buy.

  • Dell (NASDAQ:DELL)
  • Xerox (NYSE:XRX)

Weak but Leveling

This stock is in a downward trend that has temporarily improved—that is, it’s stopped falling for the time being.

  • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)

Stocks to Sell

Sell these stocks on any further weakness—they’re among the weakest of the stocks I follow, and they’re not worth the heartache.

  • Nokia (NYSE:NOK)
  • Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM)
