We’ll take a look at some of the stocks that stood out on Tuesday.
Cobalt International Energy, Inc. (CIE) formed a massive head-and-shoulder, and on Tuesday it was broken with a thrust, jumping 3.75 to 13.85, or 37%, on 7.9 million shares traded. It had a clean breakout across the neckline, resistance, and declining topsline, and nearly making it all the way up to the multiple-month highs up around 15. There may be a follow-through, but that’s the target. Eventually, look for this stock to not only test, but get into the high teens.

It’s up against key resistance at about the 6.50 - 7.00 zone, and if it gets through that, look for another move up towards 11, which is the next target.
Silicon Motion Technology Corp. (SIMO) may be breaking out again. It had a big run up, and has been consolidating nicely. It popped a week ago, and on Tuesday it popped again, closing at the high for the day, up 1.45, or 7 1/2%, on 1 million shares. This stock looks like it’s headed up toward 27, and we put a swing trade on it.
