Today, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedsmall cap professional services and technical solutions stock Cartesian Inc (NASDAQ: CRTN) as a long/bullish trade:
It’s a subtle clue from Cartesian, but still one worth noting… and acting on. That is, yesterday’s pullback only had to touch the 20-day and 100-day moving average line (blue and gray, respectively), to rekindle the budding bullish effort after months worth of sideways movement and a bullish breakout effort taking shape in just the past couple of weeks. The buyers have tipped their hand, so to speak, and sealed the deal with bullish crosses of several moving averages.
We’re getting in on this move very early, which means we’re getting in at a great price.
Our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter would have a more detailed discussion about Cartesian Incs technical chart along with a potentially bullish trading strategy:

My hunch is that Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY), Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), and Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) could be among the potential buyers.
