Petra Hess of PetraPicks.com has been looking at cybersecurity-related stocks in the aftermath of the Equifax data breach from September, and after realizing that companies like Palo Alto Networks (PANW), Symantec (SYMC) and Fireye (FEYE), she looked at the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF (HACK) and realized it was filled with the stocks she had an interest in. Provided the stock opens the day above $31.07 — Friday’s high — Hess plans to start building a position, expecting the stock to test past resistance levels north of $33 per share..If HACK fell below it’s 50-day moving average of $29.55, she’d be out of the shares. Hess said that in researching the stocks in the industry and the ETF, she also wants to buy some of the individual securities, most notably PANW.
