To analyze the company's stock for potential trading opportunities, please take a look at the 1-year chart of VVUS (VIVUS, Inc.) below with my added notations:
1-year chart of VVUS (VIVUS, Inc.) VVUS has been trending sideways for the last (8) months. As the stock has bounced along, it has formed a couple of key price levels to watch. The first is the strong $15 resistance level (red). The other is the key level of $12 level (blue) that has acted as both support and resistance and VVUS just recently bounced off of.
The Tale of the Tape: VVUS appears to be on its way back up to $15. A long position could be entered at the $12 support or on a break above the $15 resistance, with a stop placed below the level of entry. A short play could be made on a break below $12 or on a rally back up to $15.
