I\u2019m looking at 5 main stocks to play tomorrow\u2014probably some kind of play towards the market close since I\u2019m not allowed to day trade. I don\u2019t care what kind of market we\u2019re in, Friday afternoons are always scary for short sellers and thus, short squeezes are quite common and predictable. Here is a PDF version of this post. The top two potential Friday afternoon short squeeze plays are two former momentum stocks that have both gotten decimated after earnings, even though neither report was that bad. (Welcome to the land of exponential gainers, where anything less than perfection is failure!) Crocs (Nasdaq: CROX ) and Vasco Data (Nasdaq: VDSI )\u2014trying to pick the bottom on these two is impossible so don\u2019t bother trying. I can\u2019t imagine there\u2019s much downside left on either of them, but there\u2019s really no way to tell; in fact, the only thing sure is that they won\u2019t be top performers again anytime soon. Ideally, one of them or maybe even both will show some stabilization and only then will dip buyers begin to enter and shorts will get nervous and cover. No matter how many times you play this kind of pattern, each one is different so don\u2019t try to play them exactly like you might\u2019ve done in the past. I\u2019m also looking at two other stocks that have been hit hard, though these companies have many more problems and their declines have been very gradual. Stein Mart (Nasdaq: SMRT ) and Accuride (NYSE: ACW ), both surged on Thursday 14% and 10%, respectively and I\u2019m hoping their strength continues so I can short right into it! SMRT reported earnings that were pretty terrible, but wall Street was expecting something even more terrible so the stock went up. ACW had no good news, but their stock price had fallen 30% in the past few days and 50% in the past few weeks. They reported pretty crappy earnings a few weeks ago and the price action exemplifies a perfect technical breakdown. That\u2019s chart worthy\u2014see below! But like RCH the other day, this strength is probably temporary and will make for some good shorting. I won\u2019t be too aggressive in my shorting though because these moves could be the beginnings of the bottoming process so I\u2019m just watching for now. Last, but not least, the only strong stock among all these failures\u2014China Voice Holdings (Other OTC: CHVC), a Chinese telecom, wireless blah blah blah, they keep pumping out PRs every few days kind of play. Supposedly getting audited and moving to a big exchange, I wouldn\u2019t bet against them (look at AOB, yup, some of these plays actually do make it). This one\u2019s surged from 50 cents to $2 in 2 weeks and the move has become rather steep. Probly gonna drop, but I don\u2019t know how I\u2019m gonna play it, considering it\u2019s not shortable--it\u2019s on my watchlist. And I obviously watching all the other stocks I mentioned earlier in the week, but nothing is looking too worthy of TIM\u2019s hard earned capital. Oooooh, I can\u2019t wait to show you guys some perfect charts, they\u2019ll come around eventually, hang in there!
