StockTwits 50 Notables:

  • $POL was the best St50 performer today, gaining 3% and closing at all-time highs
  • $CVLT managed to hold its rising 20dma and it looks ready to test $70 this week
  • $AMGN continues to act well and closed just a few cents below all-time highs; decent daily setup too
  • $CRM closed within a striking distance of its all-time highs after heavy buying near the end of the day
  • $TRS cleared new highs on heavy volume
  • $EXPE declined in sympathy with $PCLN, which was downgraded by Deutsche bank. EXPE is right at tis rising 50dma – important technical level
  • $KORS is still under its 50dma and it is starting to look vulnerable, at least in short-term perspective
