Watchlist for 10-19-2015 – $VTL, $KIRI, $PACB, $XNPT

Today’s Watchlist

Another kind of frustrating day Friday, held PACB overnight, which I hate, it faded a little out of the gate, then bounced, I covered at even, it then pulled 30-40 cents, annoying. But at the same time, it never cracked so even when it pulled I probably would not have covered and sat around all day as it ground back. Then I would have covered into the close for peanuts after wasting my whole day.

Instead I covered flat and went and did other things and had a great day outside of trading. It is what it is, it was Friday and I knew stuff will often hold up. Last few weeks shorts have been pretty annoying. Going to continue to work on my long game.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

Vital Therapies, Inc. (VTL) -NasdaqGS

Shorted this Thursday for flat (seems to be a trend), best play would have been Thursday. Since Friday it ground all the way back. My target was $7.00 but no way I was shorting at 3PM on a Friday.

Target: $7+ para, not grinding.


Kirin International Holding, Inc. (KIRI)

Jumpy, if I trade this it will be small.

Target: $6.00


Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PACB)

Can’t believe I’m adding this to watch again, but I think this just keeps piling up shorts. And while I may not make any money on it, at least I keep covering for flat or puny losses. Waiting/hoping for a squeeze em out move.

Target: big para


Xenoport, Inc. (XNPT) -NasdaqGS

Fishing for setups.

Target: $6.00
