==========
Watch List
==========

The following stocks are on our radar screen.  We are watching
them for further developments before we add them to our Current
Play list.


Splits to Watch

EQT - Equitable Resources $79.53 +1.28

WHY WE LIKE IT:  We can't ignore the fact that the natural gas
stocks have been explosive.  The fuel feeding the fire recently
has been a wave of takeover rumors.  As gas prices rise, the
larger companies have been looking to acquire smaller companies
with expansive pipelines.  The new pipelines would enable the
bigger companies to service a larger customer base, thereby
boosting revenues.  In addition to being a potential takeover
target, EQT is due to split 2:1 on 6/15.  We are hoping for a
split run into this date, and by the looks of EQT's chart we may
just get it.  The energy stock has formed an ascending triangle
over the last two weeks and looks ready to break to the upside.
POTENTIAL TRIGGER EVENT:  If EQT can break through its upper
triangle line at $81 on volume of 265,000 shares, we will tap
into the energy stock by adding it to our Current Play list.
SUNDAY'S UPDATE: On Friday, shares of EQT popped up $1.28 closer
to its upper triangle line.  We are now just $1.50 away from
making EQT play material.  We expect that if momentum keeps up
within the energy sector, that EQT will be a fixture on our
Current Play list by Tuesday.  Should we be proven wrong, though,
we will keep EQT around only as long as it continues to close
above its recent consolidation base at $76.

 


Candidates to Watch

GS - Goldman Sachs $97.25 -0.70

WHY WE LIKE IT:  Goldman has been quietly basing between $90 and
$100 for the past month.  Now that it appears that we will not
revisit April's lows, brokerages should see an increase in
underwriting activity.  This is because companies considering
going public can be more assured that their new issues wouldn't
tank right after they hit the market.  In addition to this strong
fundamental reason for playing GS, we also like the fact that GS
has no significant resistance until $120, should it breakout from
its cup and handle formation.
POTENTIAL TRIGGER EVENT:  If Goldman can make it over its 200-dma
(now at $101.43) then we will move the brokerage giant on over to
our Current Play list.
SUNDAY'S UPDATE:  Our new Watch List stock started off in neutral
on Friday, as shares wallowed in a tight $1.00 intraday trading
range.  We expect that there is some profit taking going on after
the stock's $5.00 run on Wednesday.  However, GS's MACD has just
issued a buy signal and volume on the two consecutive days of
selling has been light.  Both these observations bode well for
our new play going into next week.  Although, should the big
brokerage stock decide to rollover, we will continue watching it
only as long as it can hold above its 50-dma, now at $90.83.

 

===

KMI - Kinder Morgan $58.75 +0.76

WHY WE LIKE IT:  Going all the way back to January of last year,
KMI has been on a steady up trend.  However, for the past three
months, as the energy sector has continued to surge, KMI has been
putting in a sideways base formation.  We view this as positive
divergence that is due to catch up with KMI soon.  As investors
continue to snatch up energy stocks, they will start to turn to
the ones that are undervalued, compared to the ones that have
already run higher.  This is why we feel KMI's time is due.
POTENTIAL TRIGGER EVENT:  A break and close above $60 on volume
of at least 700,000 shares will earn KMI a spot on our Current
Play list.  Volume is important here, since $60 has acted as
resistance twice in the last two months.
SUNDAY'S UPDATE: KMI continued to dazzle us with mediocrity.  The
stock just doesn't seem to want to breakout.  It has been content
to trade between $56.50 and $60 for the last month.  We had
anticipated a run higher by now, but will wait patiently as long
as the stock can hold above its 50-dma at $55.85.  The breakout
is bound to happen soon, with all the continued interest in the
energy sector.

 


Momentum Stocks to Watch

FO - Fortune Brands $33.82 -0.18

WHY WE LIKE IT:  This diverse holding company sells everything
from golf clubs to whiskey.  We like the fact that it has been on
a strong up trend since last July.  It is now coming up against
resistance at $35, but if it can clear this hurdle on strong
volume, we think it has a good chance at reaching $45.  We are
now just a sand wedge away from this resistance level and given
the recent double bottom that the stock put in, we think it has a
good chance at finally conquering this pesky barrier.
POTENTIAL TRIGGER EVENT:  If FO can close above $35 on volume of
at least 750,000 shares, we will clear a spot on our Current Play
list for this momentum play.
SUNDAY'S UPDATE:  Our new Watch List stock took a rest on Friday,
after spending the earlier part of the week adding 5%.  The good
news is that Friday's minor sell off came on light volume of only
300,000 shares.  This is well below the stock's three-month
average daily volume of 60,000 shares.  Going forward, we will be
watching for volume to remain above 700,000 on any type of
advance.  FO's MACD is decidedly positive and its OBV is right at
two-year highs, meaning buying interest is alive and well.

 

===

WMI - Waste Management $28.00 -0.20

WHY WE LIKE IT:  WMI spent most of 1999 and all of 2000 tracing a
large saucer formation (like a cup, but more shallow).  Since
early 2001, the stock has formed a five-point wide base that also
closely resembles an inverse head and shoulders continuation
pattern.  In addition, if WMI breaks above $28.50, there is no
upside resistance until the $40 level.  Now that the market is
improving WMI may have the institutional support to break out of
its six-month base.
POTENTIAL TRIGGER EVENT:  If the garbage company can close above
$28.50 on volume of at least 2 million shares, it will become
sweet smelling to us and will earn a spot on our Current Play
list.
SUNDAY'S UPDATE:  WMI came close to making our Current Play list
on Friday, but finally succumbed to that profit taking that we
have been anticipating.  After selling off on lower volume on
Friday, WMI might attract new buyers on Monday who have been
waiting for the pullback.  WMI still lies just $0.50 away from
our trigger price, so we may have a stake in the trash hauling
business before long.  In addition, we observe that every recent
big run in WMI has immediately followed the crossing of the 40-
dma up through the 50-dma.  Right now the 40-dma is just $0.13
away from a cross through of the 50-dma.

NEW SPLIT CANDIDATE PLAYS 05/20/01
==================================

BKH - Black Hills Corporation $55.94 (+1.79)

The well-publicized California energy crisis and President Bush's
energy plan have been very good for many utilities.  Black Hills
Corporation is a utility that primarily serves customers in South
Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.  However, the company does sell
electricity throughout the western US.  Earlier this month, BKH
reported record profits of $1.37/share, which was an increase of
226% over the same quarter last year.  The stock has been moving
higher ever since the earnings report and on Friday the stock
established a new high of $56.23.  The strong share price may
encourage the board to reward shareholders with a split.  In the
meantime, momentum traders might want to jump on this stock if it
can establish yet another new high by trading above $56.23.  This
trade might be more attractive if the move is accompanied by
midday volume exceeding 90,000 shares.  The technical picture is
improving.  The MACD issued a buy signal last week and the Money
Flow and the OBV are both moving higher off their lows.  The RSI
is indicating an overbought condition.  However the last time the
RSI was at a similar level, the stock kept rallying and the
overbought condition became more pronounced.  Initial support can
be found at $54.00 followed by more support at the 20-DMA of
$52.31.  We are placing out initial stop at $52.25 to protect
against a reversal.

Picked on May 20th @ $55.94
Change since picked +0.00
Stop Loss @ $52.25

 

===

KRI - Knight Ridder, Inc. $56.01 (+0.89)

Knight Ridder, Inc. publishes 32 daily and 22 non-daily
newspapers in 28 markets across the US. The company also runs 45
Web sites associated with its print publications. Shares of KRI
have spent the last two months consolidating in the $52-$55 range
after hitting a relative low of $50.20 on March 22nd. Over the
past two weeks, the stock has quietly moved out of its trading
range, followed by a breakout on three consecutive higher highs
coupled with higher lows. We believe that KRI may be ready to
challenge its all-time highs and we are also looking for a split
announcement with the July 17th earnings release. The company
currently has 250M authorized and 75 million shares issued so it
has enough shares for a split. From a technical standpoint, KRI
has support at Friday's intra-day low of $55.61 with additional
support at $55.23, the 10-dma. Resistance is the 100-dma at
$56.30 and then the March 9th intra-day low of $57. Traders
should look for entry points on a bounce off of $55.61 or a move
above $57 on volume greater than 480,000 shares by noon. We plan
to set stops at $54 to limit potential losses.

Picked on May 20th @ $56.01
Change since picked +0.00
Stop Loss @ $54.00

SPLIT RUN PLAY UPDATES 05/20/01
===============================

APPB - Applebee's International $44.10 (+1.21)

Applebee's posted another winning session on Friday, closing up
$0.05 to $44.10, which happens to be another all-time closing
high.  Unfortunately, there wasn't much conviction behind
Friday's advance (which is why it was only a nickel) because only
194,700 shares were exchanged, which was less than half the
three-month average daily volume of 401,200.  Despite the lack of
interest on Friday, we think APPB could continue to build on its
three-month long advance into its split-payable date on June
12th.  To that end, ABBP posted a new all-time closing high today
of $44.05.  At this point, APPB has no immediate overhead
resistance (though the psychologically-significant $45.00 level
could present a minor obstacle).  As for support, APPB has its
10-dma at $43.28 followed by the 20-dma at $42.63.  Traders
considering a position in APPB should look for a move through
its all-time high of $44.35 or a bounce off the 10-dma on volume
of 150,000 shares traded by mid-day.  One caveat for conservative
traders, though, APPB's stochastic is showing it to be
overbought, so this stock could carry a little more risk than
usual.

Picked on May 15th @ $43.20
Change since picked +0.90
Stop Loss @ $40.50

 

===

PKI - PerkinElmer $72.82 (+8.58)

PKI opened trading on Friday right were it closed on Thursday and
then proceeded to head higher into Friday's close.  PKI
strengthened its line of digital imaging equipment on Friday by
announcing the acquisition of Sonoran Scanners, which is a
privately held company based in Tucson, Arizona. Sonoran's
proprietary Laser Direct Imaging and Computer-to-Plate
technologies will add to PKI's offerings.  PKI appears to
breaking out of a long base that is supported by the 20-DMA at
$64.56 on the low side and was bounded by resistance just below
$68.00.  Now that PKI has moved out of this base, the top of the
base should now offer support.  This current rally may find some
light resistance at $75.72.  That said, the next tempting entry
point could come Monday if PKI can trade through Friday's high of
$73.19 with midday volume of over 300,000 shares.  The MACD
avoided issuing a sell signal last week and is now positive,
suggesting that the rally could continue.  The Money Flow is also
quite strong and is additionally encouraging for bulls.  Perhaps
this rally can continue right up to PKI's June 1st 2:1 split
payable date.

Picked on May 17th @ $70.12
Change since picked +2.70
Stop Loss @ $67.00

 

===

SDS - SunGard Data Systems $60.91 (+4.44)

SunGard eased another $0.09 on Friday after dropping $1.00 on
Thursday.  Unfortunately, we added SDS to our Current Play list
on Wednesday evening, so we are in the red on this stock.
Fortunately, though, only 613,400 shares were traded on Friday,
roughly 300,000 less than the three-month average daily volume,
so there wasn't a mad rush to the exits.  Despite stumbling out
of the gate, we still think SDS could make a strong run into its
split-payable date on June 18th.  To that end, its MACD remains
in a strong up trend while its Stochastic isn't showing its stock
to be overbought.  With that said, it's possible that SDS might
take the next few sessions to consolidate around $60, so there
may be another day or two of selling pressure.  With that said,
traders considering a position in SDS should look for a move
through Friday's intra-day high of $61.25 or a bounce off $60 on
400,000 shares traded by midday.

Picked on May 16th @ $62.00
Change since picked -1.09
Stop Loss @ $58.40

 



SPLIT CANDIDATE PLAY UPDATES 05/20/01
=====================================

ASD - American Standard Companies, Inc. $65.45 (+2.18)

American Standard Companies, Inc. took a small step backward on
Friday. Shares of ASD hit an intra-day high of $66.50 but the
stock could not get into record territory. Instead, ASD made a
full reversal to end the session at $65.45 on volume of 447,000
shares. The stock is definitely hitting some resistance at $66.50
following its breakout and ASD may be losing its momentum. On the
positive side, the stock remains in a firm upward trend and daily
volume has picked up over the last two days. For now, support has
moved up to $65 with stronger support at $63.74, the 5-dma.
Resistance is holding steady at Friday's intra-day high of $66.50
and then $68. Traders may consider opening new positions on a
bounce off of $65 or a breakout above $66.50 on volume of at
least 250,000 shares by noon. We are leaving our stops at $63.50
to lock in gains.

Picked on May 6th @ $62.50
Change since picked +2.95
Stop Loss @ $63.50

 

===

AYE - Allegheny Energy, Inc. $53.80 (+0.75)

Allegheny Energy, Inc. is regaining its momentum after testing
support at the 5-dma. On Friday, shares of AYE traded to an
intra-day high of $53.95 before pulling back to a close of $53.80
on volume of 279,000 shares. The stock has been consolidating in
the $53-$54 range over the last week and volume has been trending
lower. AYE may need a positive volume surge to drive the stock
out of its trading range. Going forward, support remains at
Thursday's intra-day low of $53.24 with stronger support at
$53.05, the May 11th intra-day high. Resistance is the all-time
high of $54.10 and then $55. A bounce off of $53.24 or a breakout
above $54.10 on midday volume greater than 225,000 shares may be
possible entry points. Our stops are holding steady at $53.

Picked on April 29th @ $50.60
Change since picked +3.20
Stop Loss @ $53.00

 

===

BMET - Biomet Inc. $44.27 (+3.67)

Biomet, Inc. has been trending higher over the past six sessions.
On Friday, shares of BMET hit an intra-day low of $43.37 before
bouncing back to close at $44.27 on light volume of 1.2 million
shares. This left a hammer formation on BMET's chart, which is
generally a bullish sign.  BMET is holding its upward trend and
daily volume has increased over the last week, so the stock may
continue to hit new highs. However, BMET has gained more than 10%
in the last six sessions so we may see a round of selling in the
near future. In the meantime, support is Thursday's intra-day low
of $43.55 with stronger support at $43.37, the 5-dma. Resistance
is currently at Thursday's intra-day high of $44.72 and then $46.
Look for a bounce off of $43.55 or a breakout above $44.72 on
midday volume of at least 900,000 shares before starting new
plays. We are keeping our stops at $43 to protect gains.

Picked on May 3rd @ $42.16
Change since picked +2.11
Stop Loss @ $43.00

 

===

HRB - H & R Block Inc. $58.46 (+2.41)

H & R Block looks like its taking permanent residency on the
Current Play list.  On Friday, it added another quarter to its
value to close at $58.46, marking another 52-week closing high.
HRB was helped along on Friday by remarks made by Oakmark Fund
manager Bill Nygren.  In a nutshell, Nygren said that HRB will
keep bumping along at a double-digit pace.  At this point,
though, we'd be leery of taking new positions, if only because
volume is drying up.  In fact, only 354,000 shares were exchanged
on Thursday followed by 277,200 on Friday.  With momentum waning,
we'd be conservative about entering new positions and liberal
about tightening stops, which, by the way, we adjusted again to
$57.50.  Technically, HRB still looks strong; both its MACD and
On-Balance Volume are trending higher.  However, HRB could run
into serious resistance at its July 1999 high of $59.00.  So,
traders considering a position in HRB should look for strong
volume, 250,000 shares or more traded by noon EDT, on a move
through resistance at $59.00 or a bounce off Wednesday's intra-
day high of $58.01 before placing their trades.

Picked on April 18th @ $52.85
Change since picked +5.61
Stop Loss @ $57.50

 

===

ITG - Investment Technology Group $53.89 (+2.98)

On Friday, Jeffries Group analyst Charlotte Chamberlain said that
ITG stands to benefit from the recent Instinet (INET) IPO, if
only because it's a better company.  According to Chamberlain,
ITG has booked a 32 percent annual growth rate in pre-tax income
over the past four years, compared with 9 percent for Instinet.
We guess she is suggesting that ITG should be afforded a higher
value, which we agree.  Unfortunately, though, the market
doesn't, as ITG lost $0.71 to close at $53.89.  Despite the kudos
from Chamberlain, we think ITG might take a breather after this
week's strong run.  In fact, ITG is now bumping up against
resistance at $55.00, so it's possible that it might want to
consolidate between $52.50 and $55.00 before attempting another
leg up.  At this point, ITG has support provided by its 10-dma at
$52.16 followed by additional support at its last consolidation
base at $50.  Traders considering a position in ITG should look
for a move through resistance at $55.00 or a bounce off
Wednesday's intra-day low of $52.50 on volume of 100,000 shares
traded by noon EDT before placing their trades.

Picked on May 16th @ $54.52
Change since picked -0.63
Stop Loss @ $51.40

 

===

TTC - Toro Company $45.85 (-0.14)

After two days of increasing volatility for TTC, the stock
returned to its quiet ways on Friday as it lost ground on low
volume of 24,500 shares.  It is somewhat surprising that there is
not more interest in the shares of this lawn and gardening
equipment company as we head into the summer months.  TTC
possesses some solid fundamentals and trades with a relatively
attractive P/E of only 13.10.  TTC has found resistance at its
52-week high of $48.00, which was established last week.  After
momentum traders failed to drive the stock higher following the
move into new high ground, the stock has now pulled back and is
looking to establish a support level. TTC might find support at
$45.09, which was the low print of the stock's current base.  A
bounce off this level may provide a good entry point and may be
the start of the stock's possible attempt to move higher into its
earnings report on Wednesday.  Although, given our rule of not
holding stocks through earnings, we will drop TTC no later than
Tuesday's closing print.  Our stop at $44.88 might be in
jeopardy, however, because the MACD rolled over and offered a
sell signal on Friday.  On the plus side, the RSI has pulled back
to a level that has resulted in previous rallies.

Picked April 29th @ $46.25
Change since picked -0.40
Stop Loss @ $44.88

 



MOMENTUM PLAY UPDATES 05/20/01
===============================

DCI - Donaldson Company $30.77 (+2.36)

DCI is starting to make a nice little move ahead of its earnings
release Tuesday afternoon.  With only one day left before we exit
this position (Monday at the close), this play is a bit
aggressive and may not be for everyone.  That said, DCI did
manage to establish a new high on Friday at $30.85.  Therefore,
there is very little overhead resistance and DCI could continue
its advance if it can trade above $30.85.  A good trade
opportunity may present itself if DCI trades above $30.85 in the
first hour of trading accompanied by volume exceeding 25,000
shares.  A gap up to $32.00 or higher may result in a quick
pullback that may offer patient traders a better entry price.
The OBV, Money Flow and MACD are all positive and suggest that
the DCI rally could continue.  We would be cautious about
entering any new positions if DCI drops below the support offered
by Friday's low of $29.72.

Picked on May 17th @ $30.04
Change since picked +0.73
Stop Loss @ $28.50

 

===

GTK - GTECH Holdings Corp $36.61 (+1.25)

A nice surge into the close on the NYSE enabled GTK to come very
close to establishing a new high.  The current 52-week high of
$36.80, which was established on May 10th, is providing
resistance.  GTK might enjoy a nice rally if the stock can trade
above $36.80 and accomplish this move with midday volume
exceeding 150,000 shares.  We have decided to raise our stop just
in case the above mentioned resistance proves too tough for GTK.
Our new stop is at $35.50, which is just below the nice support
offered by the rising 10-DMA.  Although the MACD is still
positive, it is starting to level off from its steep ascent that
began back in early April.  The OBV is still quite strong and is
suggesting that money could continue to flow into the stock.  Our
main concern is the RSI, which, incredibly, has stayed at levels
suggesting an overbought condition for more than two weeks.

Picked on April 20th @ $29.79
Change since picked +6.82
Stop Loss $35.50

 

===

LEA - Lear Corp. $37.60 (+1.95)

Lear is starting to convince us that it's sometimes better to be
the tortoise rather than the hare.  In other words, LEA just
keeps plodding along.  On Friday, it added $0.30 to its share
value to close at $37.60.  What's more, LEA is starting to put
out feelers to challenge its 52-week high of $38.50.  To that
end, it traded as high as $38.10 on Friday after trading as high
as $28.25 on Thursday.   LEA's mini-rally has put it well-above
its 10-dma at $36.47, which had been tough resistance.  With that
out of the way, the next level of resistance will be the 52-week
high.   As for support, LEA has its 20-dma at $36.35 followed by
its recent consolidation base 35.00.  At this point, we think LEA
may be in a position to challenge resistance based on the
strength of its MACD and On-Balance Volume.  With that said,
traders considering a position in LEA should look for strong
volume, 250,000 shares or more traded by noon EDT, on a move
through today's intra-day high of $38.10 or a bounce off the 20-
dma before placing their trades.

Picked on April 24th @ $36.20

KRI - Knight Ridder, Inc. $56.01 (+0.89)

Sunday's Comment:

Knight Ridder, Inc. publishes 32 daily and 22 non-daily
newspapers in 28 markets across the US. The company also runs 45
Web sites associated with its print publications. Shares of KRI
have spent the last two months consolidating in the $52-$55 range
after hitting a relative low of $50.20 on March 22nd. Over the
past two weeks, the stock has quietly moved out of its trading
range, followed by a breakout on three consecutive higher highs
coupled with higher lows. We believe that KRI may be ready to
challenge its all-time highs and we are also looking for a split
announcement with the July 17th earnings release. The company
currently has 250M authorized and 75 million shares issued so it
has enough shares for a split. From a technical standpoint, KRI
has support at Friday's intra-day low of $55.61 with additional
support at $55.23, the 10-dma. Resistance is the 100-dma at
$56.30 and then the March 9th intra-day low of $57. Traders
should look for entry points on a bounce off of $55.61 or a move
above $57 on volume greater than 480,000 shares by noon. We plan
to set stops at $54 to limit potential losses.

Picked on May 20th @ $56.01
Change since picked +0.00
Stop Loss @ $54.00
