GTK - GTECH Holdings Corp $29.79 (+0.57)

Sunday's Comment:

Although there are very few players that win the lottery, the ones that always win in this game of chance are those companies that supply the machinery to run these highly regulated sweepstakes. In addition, more and more states are now jumping on board the lucrative gravy train of starting and running a state lottery. GTECH has been enjoying this trend by providing the necessary equipment for governments in the U.S. and around the world to set up their own "numbers" games. GTK has been in a steady up trend despite posting earnings on April 6th that showed a decrease in profits of 6 pennies to $0.79 from the same quarter a year ago. That said, analysts believe that GTK will increase their profits for the whole year by 33%. Ever since November, GTK has been moving steadily higher and has been finding excellent support along its 40-DMA, which is now located at $27.56. Three of our favorite technical indicators, the MACD, Money Flow and OBV are all steadily rising and point towards a continuation of the positive momentum. GTK may prove to be an excellent buy if it can establish a new high above $29.95 on Monday with first hour trading volume exceeding 50,000 shares. If GTK gaps up to $32.00 or higher on the open, traders may want to wait for a little pullback to around $29.50 before initiating positions.

Picked on April 22nd @ $29.79
