Long WOOF at $19.01



August 21, 2012 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: WOOF

I would love to know why a company called "VCA Antech" gives themselves a stock symbol of "WOOF". There has to be a million other letter combinations that gives a better impression of being something more than a dog kennel for goodness sakes. 

Thank goodness I don't trade off of company  perception because I'd sell this thing as quick as I can. BUT...because I trade off of technicals, I can ignore a weird symbol like WOOF and recognize that this stock wants to move higher and is showing as much today with its breakout of a 3-day range and a move to fill the gap. I'd like to see this stock hit the low $20's and I'll be out of it.

Here's the trade setup in WOOF.

apparently i was a bit wrong - i assumed them to be a tech company when in fact they do work with animals - I stand corrected in my jabs at them :(

Also is a great symbol to use if you want to call any stock a "dog."
