The set-up: Rexahn Pharmaceuticals (RNN) is coming off a double-bottom from August, and it had a volume surge yesterday that resulted in a bullish engulfing candle.
Rexahn recently had a big gap down from the $2.80 range down to about $2.20. There was another gap that took it down to about $1.80, where it set up a nice base.
The technicals here suggest that the stock could rise up minimally to the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, which are sitting at $2.30; if we break that, we’re looking at the big gap up to $2.80
The downside risk on the trade is back to the support level of $1.80, meaning there’s a good balance between reward and risk here.
How I’m playing it: I bought 5,000 shares of RNN at $2.02 on Thursday as a swing trade – and I believe it still is buyable if the price is close to that level – looking for an upside of 15 to 20 percent on this, and setting my stops above the support line (around $1.85) to minimize the risk.
Side note: My RagingBull.com colleague Kyle Dennis of BiotechBreakouts.com likes Rexahn right now and sees the same kinds of profit potential, but he’s interested based on three upcoming catalyst events. I didn’t even know of those events or Kyle’s interest in the stock until another colleague mentioned them to me; the bullish engulfing candle is what put the stock on my radar.
