Giant Interactive Perched at Daily High

Date:2011-11-07zhangxu  Text Size:

Shares of Giant Interactive (NYSE: GA) are trading higher on the session by 5.37%, trading at $4.12. The stock has ticked higher all session and now has its eyes set on fresh daily highs.

Giant Interactive has been meandering higher for the past six weeks following a sharp decline in mid-September and subsequent bottom around the $3.00 mark. With share regaining the 20-day moving average (which has smoothed dramatically), GA now has a chance to push higher and test the $4.24 resistance level.

A successful break and hold of the $4.24 level gives Giant Interactive the green light to test the 50-day moving average and, perhaps, gap fill. Note that GA has only 1.89% short interest, which means that the potential for short covering is small; a rally will rely solely on longs.

Potential longs should look at in-the-money calls, such as the Dec2011 $2.50 strike, as a lower cost alternative to purchasing long stock.
